I really don't see why this has gotten so many bad reviews. The negatives: it is located in the strip club district next to a liquor store and it has no elevator. Everything else was more than adequate. There was no noise, it was steps away from Wal-mart, Best Buy, Target, K-mart and the stadium. There are many restaurants located near by, there's a bus stop out front, and it's like the cheapest hotel in the city. The room had a fridge (!), a microwave, hairdryer, coffee maker, all for $50 a night. I stayed here two nights, never once felt unsafe, made the short visit to the Florida Aquarium and downtown Tampa and then took a $10 cab to the airport. Oh yes, whatever these people were going on about a shuttle, that doesn't happen anymore. But really, for $50 a night I wouldn't expect them to have a shuttle. You can't beat this for the price.
