We stayed here on 5/26 for one night as we were flying out of Tampa early the next morning. After spending 11 days between WDW and Key West, I must say the customer service that Terrance at the counter presented was top notch; very "Disneylike" for those that appreciate the service when staying on Disney property.
The room was clean, towels were plentiful, and I appreciated the fact that the sink was located outside of the toilet/shower area, but was still out of view of the large window in the front room.
The shuttle service was prompt, and Terrance even arranged for a shuttle to pick us up at our car rental return the previous night to avoid an extra days rental fees. We actually felt quite silly having him do this after we realized how close it was to Alamo, but he insisted that the shuttle pick us up, as the main road had no sidewalks and we would have been walking on the shoulder of a very busy road. He also offered to print our boarding passes for our early morning flight.
Although we did not utilize the pool, we did sit out there in the evening to endulge in a "beverage" to wind down from a long trip and it seemed to be a good size to do laps if someone was inclined.
We did not utilize the breakfast, but it seemed to have a large seating area and consisted of typical continental breakfast items.
As other reviews have mentioned, the shuttle does leave at a quarter to the hour each hour to go to the airport, but we did not have to stop at any other hotels, so I am not sure if that varies or has changed that they no longer do that.
Overall I would stay there again if I was flying in and out of Tampa. I only wish I had stayed there the night we flew in rather than making the drive to Orlando. If you are looking for a clean place to spend the night, great customer service, and close to the airport, this location fits the bill.
