When I first got here I was asked what room I prefer. I said I wanted an updated room. They think a flat screen TV means upgrade... The first room I was given had the dirtiest carpet Ive ever seen anywhere. There were stains every square foot. It had a view of a man made beach (which you cannot swim on, just sand) also, only half of the view was of the bay. Ther other half was was obstructed by part of the building..
I asked for a different room the minute I stepped in.. They were very kind in trying to find me another room.. I got room 332 which had a tube tv and was not (updated) but it had an unobstructed view. This is the room I am giving 5 stars to.
I have 4 of the best TV's money can buy in 2012 at home but when on vacation to Tampa, TV is not a big concern of mine.. The biggest thing for me is that the new room was very clean. Not a single stain on the carpet which makes a world of difference, makes it feel like home where you can walk barefoot.. Also it was open concept, the first room, (which I dont remember the number) had a closed off office space which made the kitchen closed off more..
With the excellent rates and this clean open concept room I didnt mind the tube tv at all and I give 5 stars to. The first room I would give 2.7 stars (sorry I dont remember the room number) I wish the pool had a hot tub which would have made this hotel a lot better but I really have no complaints with the rates and room 332..
This hotel is also pretty much inbetween clearwater beach and Busch Gardens/Adventure island with about a 35 minutes drive to either.
I would definately come back to this hotel any chance I get but would make sure that there is a clean room available otherwise I would not book..
Oh yeah and they had the strongest ac Ive had in any hotel/motel..
