The rooms were very clean and the bed was comfy! The pool area was so nice and the staff was friendly. The motel is close (around 5 min by car) to Ybor city and the main center of the area with a lot of bars and restaurants.

Great hotel. Friendly staff, very clean and economically priced. We stayed prior to a cruise and the hotel offers a shuttle to a Tampa Port for 10 a room. The drive through the neighborhood to get there was a bit scary but once you got there all was well. I would stay again.

I will start by saying that we would stay here again if we had to. That out of the way here are my observations. The hotel is located just outside THE HOOD! For some reason, the WAZE app sends vehicles two blocks north onto E 23rd Ave and then south on N 49th St. DO NOT DO THAT. Instead turn...

Hotel was fairly decent, but had some issues. We found an odd powder on the bed, and the location was in a bad neighborhood. Breakfast hours were over a little early. Pillows were very small,and we had to request extras. However, staff was courteous and the room was otherwise fine.
