I wasn't expecting all that much but the experience was better than expected. The rooms are a little dated but they were clean. Free Wi-Fi was nice. Free shuttle service to/from anywhere within 2-3 miles. Small pool and a gym. Friendly service. I saved $50/night (compared to other local hotels) and would definitely stay again.

A GREAT location to everything in Tampa! Rooms were clean and beds were comfy. I saw this hotel before it was the HOJO and I must say they place has come a long way. Good value for the money and exactly what we needed. The wireless was also a great addition to the room!!!

Stayed 3 nights at the hotel for a golf trip. Only time the room was cleaned was the night we checked in. Left in morning and didn't return until 10:00 pm Sat and Sun to find housekeeping never came to the room. Three weeks later when my credit card statement arrived I have a mysterious $152.00 unauthorized charge on it. I would sleep in the street before ever staying at a Howard Johnson. All I ask for when on a golf trip is to just have a clean room to sleep in. I guess this is something that is not a high priority on their list!! STAY AWAY!!!!
