“You can't beat this Inn for the money!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013

Just had a guest come into Tampa for five nights and needed a very nice place near my apartment but not too expensive. Well, we found a gem! This Howard Johnson has just been totally, and I mean TOTALLY remodeled from the outside to the inside and has become a contemporary miracle. The landscaping and exterior is absolutely beautiful. The rooms are furnished with modern colors and all new and beautiful furniture. And the price ... check it out ... yep we paid way under $80 per night. Not only a bargain but a precious find. And free, delicious breakfast buffet in the morning. Try the waffles! Delicious!

I and my wife decided to visit Tampa, FL. The budget was tight, and the time was short. Howard Johnson, is located in a decent area. The building, was nice and the rooms are good. The price we paid and met the cleanliness and sleep comfort.
