“Even the name is a lie”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

It is not in downtown Tampa, but in an area where the homeless stand begging outside your door. This is the only motel where they charge extra if you want a non smoking room that I know of.. The South Asian manager appears to lack basic people skills. But my room was fairly clean. The place is noisy. It is really a third rate motel in a place you don't want to be where people rent a room to bring someone they picked up on the street.. The "free" breakfast is pathetic. In short this is run with a level of greed that is clear and is low class. Pass it by.
