“Howard Johnson Tampa/airport stadium”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

The hotel room's carpet was filthy. My feet/socks were black from walking on the carpet. The bathrrom tile wasn't much cleaner and the toilet leaked when you flushed it. Very disappointed in this hotel.

Check-in was smooth and efficient. Clean room. Surprisingly quiet considering the proximity to strip clubs, a busy road and the fact that it was New Year's Eve. Close to restaurants and shopping. We wanted to take the shuttle to the airport but the first shuttle was at 5:00 a.m. and we needed to be at the airport by 4:00 a.m. We were told by the staff at check-in that a taxi would be only $10. In the morning, a taxi arrived and the driver told us it was $15. The staff member agreed with the taxi driver, contradicting his own colleagues. Not too impressive!

I stayed at this motel while in Tampa for a Bucs game. The hotel is basically a motel. It was clean and sufficient for six guys but I would probably not take my wife here. The hotel is a 15 minute walk to Raymond James Stadium which was great for us. There are a few restaurants and strip joints down the street. The area is ok but I would be cautious at night. Great value and price for a guys football weekend!

Being a HoJo's I wasn't expecting a 5 star, but this property was an embarrassment to me my wife and it should be to the entire HoJo's chain. The property was older and in need of repair from just the first impression. Upon reaching our room we realized that a little repair is a major understatement. The room we were in included a leaky bathtub faucet, carpet so dirty it left my feet caked and needed to washed. To make matters worse, one of the outlets was literally coming out of the wall. To top things off, on the bed was a copy of the latest issue of the local strip club guide. Just awesome!!!! I know HoJo's of late is not what it was in the past, but in no way was I expecting it to be this bad. Do Not stay here!!!!

This hotel has some maintenance and housekeeping issues which need to be resolved. Front Desk personnel could be more friendly and knowledgeable. There were no maintenance personnel available at the hotel on a saturday at 4:30pm.
