Front desk staff were always friendly and helpful. The rooms were small but adequate. Bathrooms were very clean and stocked with towels and toiletries. Thanks to the housekeeping staff! The breakfast area is nice and big with plenty of seating and even an extra room next door for overflow. It has many choices in food and drink, so everyone is able to find something they like. The breakfast attendant (I think her name was Bernice) worked tirelessly restocking the breakfast buffet and cleaning tables. She was still keeping the area clean and stocked even a few minutes past the "closing time" for us late risers. The cinnamon rolls are such a treat! High praise for Bernice! My biggest complaint was the fitness room. It had two treadmills and a stationary bike. They are right against a mirrored wall, so you are staring yourself in the face, and the TV is at the far end of the room, so you would have to turn your head sideways 90 degrees the whole workout in order to see the TV. But the biggest fault is the lack of outlets, so you have to choose either the TV or a fan (a very small fan up in the corner of the ceiling). Because I couldn't bear to run on the treadmill in silence while staring at myself in the mirror, I chose the TV. But without a fan, the very small room became so unbearably hot, I thought I would faint. Moreover, there is no water cooler as most hotels have in their fitness room. They do have a water fountain (bubbler), but no cups available, so you have to get off the treadmill and go bend over the fountain in the middle of your workout every time you need a sip. Overall, a well-maintained and friendly hotel for the price; just needs improvement in the fitness room. If you are not planning to work out, it's a great place!
Great location is you need access to the Veterans Expressway or Tampa Airport. Conveniences nearby like WaWa, Target, Walgreens, Chik-fil-a.
