You know when you're staying at a HoJo for under $60 a night that you aren't looking for luxury. Indeed, the pool was in the middle of the parking lot and the tube tv got 8 or 9 channels (fortunately one was ESPN) but we were pleasantly surprised with the overall stay. The room was very big with a kitchenette, bed was comfortable, everything was clean, and the front desk people were nice. It's near a variety of stores and restaurants and the surrounding area is busy but seems safe enough. It was convenient for us as well.....20 minutes from Ybor City and 30 from Clearwater. Definitely the best hotel we've stayed at for the price range.

This was such a friendly place, with staff that went above and beyond. They wrote out directions, gave information, helped with bags, offered advice, ran after us when we forgot something. We were very happy and pleased during a stressful time of hospital stay.

The hotel was located close to the airport, but not too close. The neighborhood was safe and well patrolled. The room was clean. The beds and pillows were comfortable. The heated pool was actually heated and warm enough to swim in. The wi-fi was a little shaky at times but worked for the most part. The staff was very friendly and helpful. This stay changed my mind about the last time I stayed at a HoJo ten years ago when I swore them off. I was pleasantly surprised.
