I went down here for a conference in November 2013. Paid $89/night for three nights. I thought the hotel was very nice and that the location was solid; it's about 15 minutes to downtown with traffic and is much cheaper than staying downtown. Easy access to the airport and to bridges to Clearwater/St. Pete.
I didn't understand the previous comment about no wi-fi in the rooms. I had free wi-fi in my room and it worked well. The hotel has been recently updated, so that's a plus. Parking could be a little dicey here, but I was able to find parking fairly late on all 3 nights. Pool seemed nice, and I think there is table tennis here, so your kids have some potential recreation options within the hotel if you're looking to stay here instead of somewhere more expensive.More
