We found this hotel met our needs well, was in a good location and came at a great price. Our room was clean and comfortable on arrival and the housekeeping staff kept it that way during our 5 day stay. The view of the Bay from the balcony was a plus. The only down side to the room was the air conditioning unit which was loud and had to be turned on and off to keep the climate in the room even.
For the reasonable price of the room we were pleasantly surprised to have a decent restaurant attached to the hotel. We ate at Crabby Bill's three times and thought the food was good and the price fair. We loved the convenience of having a real restaurant on grounds. There also is an exercise room with plenty of equipment and TV's to have a comfortable workout.
The hotel was near the airport and with our rental car sightseeing was easy.
We would stay here again when coming to Tampa as the hotel was a good value for the money.
