This is the fourth time that we have stayed here since 2010. The staff and manager (Kelly) are excellent and will do anything to make your stay welcoming and pleasant. We normally stay during August but this time came a little earlier in July. We have seen this hotel improve year on year just as Kelly has planned it. Yes it is an economy hotel however don't let this detract you; it has clean and spacious rooms, a lovely pool, and a decent breakfast. We have been a little perturbed by some of the reviews on here and feel that the place has been beaten up unnecessarily by some of the visitors. If you are expecting a 5 star hotel for 2 star money then go somewhere else it's as easy as that. The hotel offers you a decent location with 15 minutes access to Clearwater beach, 30 minutes to International Plaza shopping, 35 minutes to Busch Gardens and Lowry Zoo, and 20 minutes from Tampa airport. It has a good size pool. Weekdays are generally very quiet with the weekends becoming more busier. We really don't understand what some peoples expectations are when you are paying around $50 per night including breakfast! Anyway that's our opinion and we will continue to stay here next year.
