My best motel experience so far in the USA, much better than other similarly priced chains, by this I mean around $65 on Expedia (Qualifier: I've stayed in most other chains and not comparing against a Courtyard). The room feels new and smells good. Clean toilet, walls, carpet, linen. Everything works, and there's even a pool which looks clean enough to use. No hesitation in recommending this place to anyone. We even got the chance to do our laundry here. There is only one washer and two dryers (we were lucky as it was unused at the time). I was a little concerned before the trip after seeing some recent negative reviews here on Tripadvisor. But I'm glad I did not encounter any of the problems reported. Our main reason for stopping by Tampa was to head to Busch Gardens. So location-wise, this place is perfect. As it is close to the highway, it was really easy to head to the steakhouse at Hard Rock casino for dinner too. I had the huge rib steak at Council Oak and would definitely recommend the restaurant to other steak lovers. Make sure you call ahead to make reservations. I didn't realize this and could only secure a table at 10:30PM on the day.
