We flew in and out of Tampa on Spring Break. Needed a hotel that was convenient to the airport and the highway. Checked Trip Advisor saw the reviews and booked online through HOJOs. A very basic looking drive up hotel that has been spruced up. Yes there is road noise and it can get very busy, but the rooms were clean, the beds comfortable (double queen beds!) and the staff very accomodating (Kathy at breafast was so nice!). You get what you pay for, a clean, comforatble room. if you need a place to rest your head to start or end a vacation, you can do much worse.

Stayed here for one night before leaving Tampa. Location is good, close to airport and restaurants, We arrived at about noon and were able to check in at 1pm. Sat by the pool for a while, it is clean and well maintained. You will notice quite a bit of noise at the pool from the highway, as it is not far from it.
Our room was large and clean, although somewhat dated. Could use a renovation, had older furniture and a tube TV. However, it was quiet and served our purpose just fine. Free breakfast was a plus, they had bagels, cereal, fruit and waffles. Coffee and juice was also served. For the price, this hotel is a very good value.

Room Tip: We had a corner room on the south side of the second floor which was very quiet.
