My husband and I stayed here the week of spring break. Although I do not always take other people's reviews to heart, this time I have to agree that the hotel itself could use some updating. The elevators were slow (one was broken the whole time we were there.) Students EVERYWHERE! I do not like the floor showers in the rooms. Now for the good points! The complimentary shuttle was very helpful when we were going to places downtown such as Ybor City. The people at the front desk (Eneida and Jarvis) were very helpful and always had a smile on their faces.Chris (in the bar) was very kind and helpful and stored the fish we caught on a fishing trip in the kitchen freezer. The employees were the reason I gave the hotel 4 stars.
