“Nice place to stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2014 via mobile

We stayed here when we first got to Tampa. The staff are super friendly and helpful. The breakfast was really enjoyable. Room was clean and quiet. We
would definitely stay at
this location again.
The staff knows the area and printed directions for us to find local stores.

the staff were very helpful and the breakfast was excellent and was free with the room. I had 24 teens with us and there was plenty food even for these big eaters. the night staff that checked us in was outstanding . WE were real late in getting in and they were still helpful. This place was really clean and I would stay again and refer to anyone.

Room Tip: better than any other hotel that i have stayed in the area and I have stayed at many. away from the...

This hotel is out east of Tampa, with very little around it. There was a Bob Evans, but I never got back to the hotel before ten pm, so it was closed when I needed to eat. There was a Wendy's nearby. For some reason the cleaning person took my cigarette lighter, so i had to go out after midnight to find one. The clerk behind the desk could not have cared less.
Overall, the room was clean, quiet and comfortable. Wi-fi was excellent.

I chose this hotel mainly because of the price and because the hotel was less than 10 years old. This hotel was easy to get to and it was very nice. The room was comfortable and the breakfast was fairly nice. There was a Bob Evans restaurant across the parking lot so I didn't have to go far for a good affordable meal.

We recently stayed for a family vacation and this was a great hotel near Busch Gardens. The customer service was excellent and the breakfast was yummy! We stayed in a King bed suite and was perfect for us that have 2 small children. Highly recommend!

We chose this hotel as we had to be at hospital early and wanted to go to Busch Gardens afterwards. The location is great for both and as usual with Choice Hotels which we almost always use the check in and out were flawless, the room was clean, the show was nice and XL, The breakfast is good as it is at most Choice properties and includes hot waffles and great biscuits and gravy.

This is our first time staying at this location. My wife and I are regular customers of the Choice Hotels particularly the Sleep Inn brand. We find their rooms to be comfortable, clean and cozy. We arrived at the property to be greeted by a nice front desk girl that left a lasting impression on my due to her candor and positive attitude. She checked us into room 409, we took the elevator which could use some attention from the housekeeping staff but ti was fast and efficient. As soon as the elevator doors opened we noticed a faint, subtle cigarette smell on the hallway, however when we opened our door to the room the smell was gone. The room is small but just right for a couple, felt cozy and did not have a musty smell to it. The bathroom had some sloppy housekeeping done but nothing worth complaining about. The water pressure was strong and the water was hot. Beds were comfortable and did not make much noise. The TV is a little 32" "Flat Scree" tv.....Not HD and not really sharp at all. The image was fuzzy and the channel choices were minimal, once again not worth making a complaint about it because we did not spend much time in the room. One thing worthy of mention was that the room felt new but old at the same time, you could definitely see how the room had been painted and "upgraded" but the feel to the room was still dated. The coffee maker was dirty with old mineral deposits and other coffee grains, the window sill looked like had been recently redone as the paste around the window was still fresh and very dusty. I would like to say that this property is a good one or two night stay and that is it. Not much more to see or do in this property. They do offer a free breakfast with the typical Waffles, coffee, machine dispensed juices and cereals. I would stay here again if the rate convinces me. There is an IHOP nearby in case you decide to have a more bountiful breakfast. Contact me if you need more information.
