Having a long flight from London to Tampa on 30th August we did not relish a late night drive to Sanibel Island. I tried to book a hotel for the night at any Tampa airport hotel. However, due to the Republican Convention being held in the city, rooms were almost impossible to get. I decided to try and book a motel close to the I75 and about an hours drive out of Tampa. Having found the Bradenton Econolodge on the net I checked several review sites and was found that just about everybody who posted said their experience was good. I booked a room for one night and have to agree with other reviewers that this motel is convenient, clean and has very pleasant helpful staff. There are several eating places located within easy walking distance of it which was a great help to us when we arrived late. We didn't have time to try out the pool area but from what we saw it was very clean, tidy and did look inviting. Having paid something around 30 pounds for a double room including a breakfast of coffee and muffins I think this motel represents excellent value for money . I would have no hesitation in staying there again and would certainly recommend it to friends and family.
