“Dirty & Unpleasant odors.”
Reviewed 1 April 2009

Checked in and after 5 minutes went next door to a clean restaurant to think about my mistake. Then asked to check out and was offered another room. I walked to the next room with the front desk staff and it clearly smelled just as bad. Each room smelled like it was used as a kennel for dogs & cats and later they sprayed something in attempt to cover the odor. The smell alone caused my sinuses to react and a cough was just another minute away. Fact is the place is old and dirty. MOLD is dangerous and un-healthy. I did much better for $20 more in a new place built just 1 year ago. When our bags were at the restaurant next door the waiter & waitress just said the place was "scary."

We stayed here for a few days...first time in tampa. We were going to a hockey game so the location is perfect, it's about a 15 min drive from there. It's a little far from the beach, but a nice drive to the beach. We didn't eat breakfast at the hotel, but there seemed to be a nice selection. There is an IHOP walking distance. Conplimentary newspaper in the lobby too.

Great service, good location, very affordable (about $65 for us), clean rooms, comfortable sleep, wonderful selection of breakfast, AAA discount available, and points with Choice Rewards. They have shuttle service to the airport and cruise. Definitely a good place to stay the night if you are in the Tampa area.

My son and I stayed here. Only bad thing was that when plugged in, the coffee maker/fridge/microwave (there was one plug to plug in all 3 and I didn't have the energy to figure out which one it was) makes a clicking sound that my son couldn't sleep through. So we had to put the TV on at a low volume to get rest.

Other than that, our stay was great! I highly recommend this hotel.
