I have been staying at this property on business for several years and have never been disappointed. It has always been clean, well serviced and with a helpful staff. Breakfast is good and the treadmill & stair climber in the fitness room have always been in good working order. As an added bonus it is a short walk to the Ranch House Restaurant, which has been a Tampa staple for as long as I can remember. Very convenient to McDill and only a 10 minute drive to the Westshore business district.
If you are looking for friendly service, quality facilities and a quiet stay, this is the place. It could not have been better.
I stayed here alone one night on a pleasure trip to Tampa. Hotel seems to be fairly old, having been refurbished over the years and in generally good condition. My room was on a busy street, and I found it necessary to keep the fan on all night to drown out the noise. Awoke to find a cockroach staring at me from the edge of the bathtub, although being a Florida resident I took it pretty much in stride. Breakfast had a fairly good selection. Pleasant people at the desk. All in all, an acceptable selection for a moderately priced hotel, although I still am adjusting to an $82 room being considered "moderate".
Priced well for the market. In room wireless internet was easy to connect and had good sped. Free breakfast was a bit above average with ready to heat cheese omletts. Good juice and toast selection. Apples and bananas. Fitness center is small and has limited machines, but they were all new and in excellent working order. Did not use the pool but it was cleaned and well maintained. Room lacked a comfortable chair with an ottoman even though there was room to have one. The road the property sits on is a major Tampa to St Pete street and traffic is very heavy during commuting hours.
Night crew were very professional and polite. The British lady at the front counter even found me a good discount to use for my one day stay. Room was clean and very presentable. Carpet were ok and didn't stink like in other inns I had stayed. TV was out of style, old and bulky. TV service/channels were limited and not good at all. Location of the hotel is excellent, there are plenty of restaurant, fast food, and shopping plazas nearby. The city of Tampa is a easy access from hotel. Macdill AFB is nearby too. Overall: great place to stay.
