“Great Location!”
Reviewed March 25, 2014

Stayed at this hotel from March 13th -20th 2014 with 2 other people.
The hotel is a little older, but it has been remodeled so it looks as it looks online.
The AC was a little weird, because when you pull the big curtain over it, it turns off.
The hair dyer was very old and smelled like it was burning... Bring your own hair dryer.
The pool was very nice.
The breakfast was in bags..?
The shuttle was always running and was a little late but you got to the airport, fast.
If you like malls there is a huge one across the street.
There is a olive garden, longhornsteak house, and Ruth's grill in the parking lot to the left of the hotel.
There is also a 24 hour IHOP in the right parking lot of the hotel.
30 minutes from Clearwater Beach
5 minutes from Walmart, Chillis, and Homedepot
20 minutes from the Lowry Park Zoo
25 minutes from the Florida Aquarium
Planes fly over head, but during the night you can barely hear them.
There is also a computer, so you can print off your boarding passes for the airport.

Very good hotel, had minor issues, the price was a little high but very clean and very kind staff.

This is an older property that has been remodeled. Close to TPA, lots of retail & eateries & easy access to interstate. Nothing fancy, but good. Has 2 floors but no elevator. Pet friendly. Also has an IHOP next door.

Room Tip: Would recommend that you ask for a room on the east side as the jet noise was a bit bothersome

Pretty old and tired property, first room smelled terrible and no working AC...2nd room better. Parking lot smelled of a urine/vomit mix. Breakfast better than expected and no problem getting the shuttle to pick us up. Real close to Airport, $25 cab to cruise port.

Stayed on night in March prior to collecting hire car. Great nights sleep, we'll appointed rooms. Nice and quiet, great little pool for cooling down.

Breakfast was basic but good. Some little surprises for the European travellers. The individually wrapped slices of bread stand out. It fuelled us for our day, and the filter coffee was really good.

It's also walking distance (really, it was less than 5min) to a good selection of restaurants.

Good job team.

Arriving at the Inn it was suggested that it would be best to return our rental to the airport today rather then in the morning. I was surprized as we are only 15 minutes away from the airport. Taking their advise we moved our luggage up two flight of steps, not easy, and we were only provided one key for the room which I left with my wife.
Dropped off car to Hertz, an excellent company, with no problems and phoned for a pickup. I waited 45 minutes and went back into the airport to call. I guess when I went inside the van showed up fortunately the desk at the hotel asked him to turn around so I was eventually picked up and deposited to the hotel in a swift manner.
The room is fine but the shuttle only picks up every hour so our 8:30 am flight we are required to be picked up at 5:45 am a good 2 1/2 hours prior to our flight. We already have our boarding pass and paid the baggage fee so check in should be a breeze. Not overly impressed for a hotel that demands a fee of $110+ per night.

Room Tip: get a room on the ground floor
