“Stayed for the 4th”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2012

Recently just stayed 2 nights on July 3rd and 4th. The hotel itself is right off I4, room was clean. Exactly what we needed. Neighborhood across the way isn't the best but still a good hotel. Just 3 miles to downtown ybor and some good bars. Kind of a journey to find a supermarket, you have to stop by Brocatos just down the street, amazing food.

This was once a Holiday Inn that kept getting worse and was finally abandoned. Quality Inn came in and gave it a facelift. I stayed several years back when it was brand new. It was not bad and very affordable. I had a free night stay so I tried it again. Big mistake. It has not aged well. The carpet was disgusting. The lock on the door was almost broken off as you could tell someone had attempted to break in. The refrigerator made very loud noises periodically. It is in a bad part of town also. And if you want to use the internet be prepared for VERY slow service. I also itched all night. Was afraid there were bedbugs, but never saw any so not sure what that was. Never again for me.

Great quality, and value and quit surprising. We did not expect a quality inn to be so nice. Everything was clean and in good order. The breakfast was the typical continental style but adequate. Yes its in the middle of a rough area but we felt safe. I definitely stay again.

Decent average facilities. Carpets are pretty dingy and AC unit vent in my room looked like it hadn't ever been cleaned out. My slight asthma was truggered dutung my entire 2-night stay.

Hotel is located in the middle of a depressed area of town - not Ybor City proper, so be aware of that. Not much around in terms of restaurants, etc. You will need a car to get around. Staff immediately upgraded me to larger room upon check-in since my initial room had a very dirty toilet commode.

Worse part of stay was waking up this morning to a bedbug crawling on my arm, despite conducting a good search for any signs of them when i came in. No bites on me but, I caught the bug alive and showed it hotel staff. Staff indicated they knew of bedbug problem in another room and thought it was eradicated. Staff was understanding, helping me to put my clothes in dryer for a time to kill off any lingering bugs and promised me a refund of my prepaid costs.

Last year I enjoyed this hotel so I returned and found it going down. Little dirtier although still clean, 2light bolbs needed to be replaced -lack of housekeeping. It took 45 minuets and 3 calls before bolbs were replaced. I still recommend this hotel hoping these minor issues shall be improved.

We stayed at this hotel in March for one night. We got a suite, which was really nice, because it is actually two rooms (one with a king size bed, and the other with a sleeper sofa, fridge, and microwave). Since most suites (at Choice Hotels) aren't two actual separate rooms, it was really nice to see that here. Our first room smelled like smoke (even though the hotel is smoke free), but we were moved into another room when we alerted the front desk. Our suite had been recently renovated, so it was not out of date like other reviewers mentioned. The breakfast was good (waffles), but it was crowded. Like others said, it's not in the best neighborhood, but we never felt unsafe. We would definitely stay here again.

Rooms were dated and in need of improvement. Hotel not in the best of neighborhoods. Disappointed management was not more proactive in controlling the younger guests accumulating in the hallways outside the rooms. We were still complaining at 1am. The layout of the hotel in two separate buildings made checking in and out very awkward. Breakfast area was crowded and needed more TLC. Overall, not a very happy experience
