The location and overall value of the hotel was excellent. For the money the room was what I expected. Unfortunately, the television in the room was so horrible that it will be the reason I would not stay here again... If you just need a place to sleep this hotel is great. If you are going to be spending a lot of time in the room... stay somewhere else. I was here for the Superbowl and the reception was so fuzzy that I no idea what was going on. It was almost like the days of antenna television. Fuzzy signal and few choices. This really needs to be addressed by the hotel. Step into the 21st century.

Look into this hotel's great "Park & Cruise" deal. Stay a night, leave your car parked during your cruise, and get complimentary shuttle service to and from cruiseport. The staff is very pleasant and helpful; probably the best aspect of this hotel. It is an older hotel but is gradually being updated. Facilities are clean. Complimentary breakfast is more than adequate.

I stayed at this hotel in room 228. Bedding was as good as westin. I had all the basic stuff. Breakfast was very good. There is a restaurant next door. They do have a van that drops people to airport. There are three other restaurants and one major groccery store within walking distance. I have stayed there before when it was a different brand. Managers that I dealth with were extremely helpful. Unlike what one of the previous reviwer said, there are several nice places to eat nearby. There is a pizza place that deliver to this hotel.
Building is old but it is well kept.

One observation...please lower the switch on the lamps on the night table, you have to get up to turn it off. (i'm 5'5")

"Location" in Tampa depends on where you're spending your time. If it's Busch Gardens, this hotel is not very close, but there aren't that many hotels near Busch I'd stay at, either because of price or condition. Otherwise, this hotel is in a very strategic location for other Tampa attractions (Ybor City, Hard Rock Casino, etc.) and for hopping across the Bay to St. Petersburg / Clearwater and their attractions.

As other reviewers noted, I was very impressed by the friendliness of the staff. During our one night stay, we encountered five different staff (front desk, breakfast room and housekeeping) and all of them gave us a hearty greeting. Most hotel staff give a perfunctory, business-like monotone greeting.

This is an older property, so the rooms are a bit smaller than the newer Choice hotels but very adequate. Also, older style TV, not LCD flat panel. No issues with cleanliness, odors, etc.

The breakfast was standard Choice fare: waffles, those round mini-pancake size scrambled "eggs", sausage patties (not links), cereals, etc. I liked that they also had hard boiled, "real" eggs.

I also liked that instead of USAToday, they offered the local paper and the Wall Street Journal.
There's a computer with Internet access in the lobby. I'd have no hesitation about staying here again.

We recently stayed overnight prior to our Western Caribbean cruise, and after cruise prior to returning to Australia. Friendliness of all staff was exceptional. I appreciated being able to have a package mailed to the motel and having it held till our return, as well as having our excess luggage held for us whilst cruising. The shuttle service picking us up after dropping off our rental car, and the shuttle to and from cruise terminal saved us a lot of anxiety. Nothing was too much trouble. We have no hesitation in recommending the service provided.
