If your destination is North Tampa, this hotel about 15 miles north of the Fletcher Avenue I-275 exit is a good value. The hotel is located adjacent to a shopping center with a Best Buy, Bed, Bath & Beyond, and other stores as well as cinemaplex. There's an Outback Steakhouse adjacent to the shopping center and the hotel has coupons for a free blooming onion. There are many other restaurants east of the Interstate exit. (Hotel is just west of the exit.)
I'd not stayed at a Sleep Inn for at least two years and I recall why. They are a slimmed down version of the other Choice Hotels. Our King room was large but didn't have a microwave or refrigerator. Those rooms cost extra.
Also, a shower stall instead of a tub/shower. A 19 (or maybe 21) inch CRT TV, not flat panel. A "single cup" coffee maker, but there's plenty for free coffee in the lobby (and free cookies at 7 PM).
Breakfast is also slimmer than the other Choice hotels. "You make 'em" waffle maker, but only two types of cereal; bagels and muffins; yogurt. No eggs or sausage / bacon. Juice, coffee and milk.
No computer in the lobby for those without a laptop.
The main reason to select this hotel is price and quick access to north Tampa without fighting the morning rush hour traffic if you were staying in Tampa. Assuming you leave at 7:30 am, the traffic doesn't back up until about a quarter mile from the Fletcher exit.
