“Close to Raymond James Stadium”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

Stayed at this hotel recently. No frills but within walking distance to Raymond James Stadium. Less than a mile and you can save on parking costs. Room was somewhat clean but needs some TLC. Bathroom could use some attention too. But all in all a good stay. The free breakfast was the Choice Hotels standard with many choices. A good way to get your day off to a good start. Many nearby restaurants. WOuld stay here again.

Worst place I have ever stayed! they are very unorganized with their shuttle service and their front desk serice. They say that they offer rides to and from the airport, ship terminals, and anywhere within a 3 mile radius. However they can never seem to get you to your destination on time. One couple was told they would be picked up from Walmart in 10 minutes and was left waiting for an hour. We were scheduled for the 12:00 shuttle to the cruise port and they had promised too many people the same thing so we didn't leave until 1:00pm... We had to sit on the floor of the van because there were no seats left.Their shuttle vans are falling apart i.e. seat belts are broken, seats are broken. The woman at the front desk Cathie is very rude and does not allow you to speak when you are trying to ask her questions. The rooms are small and dirty, way overpriced! It is more like a cheap motel than a comfort inn. The bathrooms are dirty and stained, the tvs don't work or come in very staticy and I was surprised there were no bed bugs. The only nice thing about this place is the pool, and its proximity to places such as airport, restaurants, etc. other than that i would rather sleep in a tent than come back to this place.

We stayed at this hotel because of its proximity to Raymond James Stadium, it is a brief walk away. Our room was in the 700 building which must have been recently renovated. The room was big, bright and clean. The only negative I could think of was the poor reception on the television's lower channels. The room was a quasi kitchenette so it had a small refrigerator, microwave and separate sink. Check in was a breeze even though there was a line when we got there. The wifi worked without a hitch, strong signal in our room. Overall a very pleasant experience.

Unfortunately, I stayed here many times on business over the past year as it was handy to where I needed to go. If all you need is a bed - then this might fit you bill. The reasons I stayed were the smoking availability and (supposed) WiFi so I could complete business in my room.
The first few times there was always something broken, the rooms were dirty and there were large cigarette burns on the comforter and furniture. They did a remodeling and the cleanliness did improve a bit (or maybe they just put in lower wattage lighting so you couldn't see the grunge.
The internet - or lack of internet has always been a major problem here - but the staff is well versed in their "we're sorry for the inconvenience" canned line.
One night I heard a 'THUMP' and woke up with the headboard on top of me ! ! "We're sorry for the inconvenience"
This last visit was absolutely no different - absolutely NO INTERNET at all. The front desk guy tried to tell me it was my equipment and then became very condescending in attitude.
I am in Tampa several times a month - and for convenience always stayer at this place. This last time I checked out at 9:00 PM
I'll be back in Tampa this weekend - but it sure won't be at this place

My children and I spent one night at this hotel. After checking in very late we were sent around the back of the complex. We couldn't see the room numbers well, but when we found the correct room there was an extension cord from inside the room leading to somewhere outside. I was very leary to try the room, when after a moment a worker appeared and stated he was charging the golf carts and would plug into another room. (all at about 1:30AM!) The room itself was old. Carpet yucky, but bedding clean. Thankfully no bugs! Room had an odor, but again other then being extremely old it was acceptablely clean. (other then the carpet- which was probably the cause of the odor). We stayed only the one night. We didn't want to find out what the breakfast was like, so we left early. The bright spot of this stay was the front desk staff was extremely helpful and pointed us in the direction of Clearwater Beach. There we got a great Comfort Suites hotel and a family friendly beach as well.

After a great stay at a budget hotel/motel in Kissimmee, we thought that we would save a few quid by staying at another budget chain.

We've never felt so threatened in a hotel before. The reception staff were unwelcoming and the people we encountered around the hotel were very intimidating.

We would never go back and (weeks later) are still concerned about the safety of people staying at this property.

No, this is not one of the best but it definitely met our needs when we were in a bind. We were sailing out of Tampa during the time of the Republican National Convention. This was the only hotel that had a room available. I was sceptical but it filled the need. The rooms were definitely dated but they were clean and we had a nice hot breakfast as well as transportation to and from the port. All in all, it was a positive experience.
