“Great Value, location and staff.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

The price for accommodation was excellent. Front desk, breakfast room and shuttle driver went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable. The location is close to several attractions. Only downfall is the area is a bit sketchy but you are close to everything with the highway so close.

The room was nice and clean. The staff was friendly. Had to leave early so I wasn't able to try out the breakfast. The location was strange, on the same street as some run down houses. Doors locked late night and need a room key to get back in so it is secure.

Neema and the team at this hotel were very friendly and welcoming. I'll be honest and say that I wasn't expecting such great service & that quite nice of a room given the low price. I will definitely stay here again when in the Tampa area! Oh, and breakfast was pretty good.

This is an awesome hotel! Staff is very nice, breakfast was fresh and had bagels, bread, cereal, biscuits, gravy, juices, fruits, among other items. The breakfast staff was wonderful...said "Good Morning" to everyone coming in for breakfast and catered to you if you needed anything. The room although an older hotel was very clean and the bathroom was beautiful with great upgrades. We had a suite so we had TWO bathrooms and a small fridge along with 2 tvs and a small sleeper couch. I do wish we had a microwave but that didn't matter since we only stayed one night. I rate this very high and I would recommend this hotel to anyone! It was definitely in a good area and about 1 mile from Hard Rock Café and very close to the Port of Tampa where we cruised from.

Was a little apprehensive at first since it didn't cost a lot, but I have to say the guy at check inn was so friendly. We got to the room and we were very pleased. Looked like it had updated paint, clean carpets, clean room, and super comfy king sized bed. Went to the outdoor pool at 930 that evening and it was wonderful. In the morning we noticed the lobby was very clean and they had a pretty good breakfast. When we checked out we told them how pleased we were with our stay and said we would definitely be back. When we told them about the noise in the next room, and how the night guy took care of that for us, the front desk people genuinely looked concerned. This is a wonderful hotel and a great price.....It was an easy on and off the interstate, close to the casino, fairgrounds, and Busch Garden.. Looking forward to another stay
