Reviewed 12 January 2009

This small boutique hotel is perfect for anyone looking for personal service and attention to detail. At first, the main thing that drew me to it was the AMAZING location! It's within walking distance of many fine dining establishments, quaint boutiques and shops and almost anything else you might need during your stay...i.e. drugstores, grocery stores and even a place to rent movies less than a block away!
The rooms are very clean and even offer a fully equiped kitchen with brand new appliances for those days you just want to stay in! I've stayed here on several occassions (this last time for the entire month of December) and everytime I go back, there's always something being upgraded or renovated.
The staff is very laid back, friendly and will take care of any needs or problems you might encounter right away...I can't say enough great things about this hotel...well...there is one more amazing detail...THE GREAT LOW RATE!!!

Pros: Great South Tampa location, close to several popular bars and restaurants
Cons: Not quite professional, to the point we did not feel safe and decided not to stay. Rooms are a hodgepodge of furnishing - ugly bedspread, awkward placement of small table and chairs, but posh flatscreen TV.

We ended up canceling our reservation here after an odd experience that left my husband feeling too unsettled to stay the night. I think they are trying, but there were just a few too many things wrong for us to feel good about it. We had booked through Travelocity, so had to call Travelocity to cancel, but the hotel manager agreed to refund everything with no problem.

Here's what happened: We arrived at a time when the manager had been called away to take care of his child, so a very new desk clerk tried to check us in. They couldn't find the keys to our room, and weren't quite sure if the room had been cleaned. I felt bad that the person was new and wasn't sure what to do, but it was unsettling that they didn't know where the keys were! We were actually in the hotel room with her while she looked for the keys and tried to determine if the place had been cleaned. Doesn't make you feel safe. She kept having to call the manager on her cell phone to try to find out what to do. He was on his way back, and we certainly could have waited for him to arrive and make it right, but at that point it had been about 15 minutes of uncertainty and weirdness and my husband had exhausted his ability to give them the benefit of the doubt. Especially when there are a million other hotels in Tampa.
I felt bad about it, but you just can't stay in a place where you don't feel safe. I can't, anyway.

My husband and I chose the hotel because of its convenient location in South Tampa while we were house hunting and were not disappointed.
A supermarket and a gym are just around the corner and there are plenty of restaurant options. While we did not see any member of the staff during our whole trip (we spend most time out and about) we always got new towels and the room was cleaned every second day. The hotel does not have a reception with concierge service or something like this, but the owner can be contacted via a speaker system. We received our room key in a lockbox with a number combination, which was interesting but worked well.
There were not plenty of items in the kitchen (plates, spoons, glasses etc.), but we had two of each, so we got by. Apart from a microwave and stove in the kitchen the fridge had a little freezer unit, which was convenient as well. The free wireless internet and the flat screen TV/DVD worked excellently. We had two closets and a chest of drawers, so enough space to store our clothes and bags.
The hotel also had a laundry room (laundry machines with coins) with vending machines.
We thought the hotel was good value for money and would definitely stay there again.

  • Liked — fast wireless internet and convenient location
  • Disliked — room size sufficient, but could be bigger if you stay more than 1 or 2 nights

I loved my stay, very personable staff, great prices, well worth the upgraded suite. This hotel has recently gone through some remodeling and the new features accent the building and rooms very well. I would and DO recommend this hotel to everyone that travels!

  • Liked — Great Price and GREAT room.
  • Disliked — The rooms are a little small, but perfect for a cozy couple getaway.
