I've got pretty good eyesight and I didn't see the strip club. Bearing in mind you'd need to walk through the parking lot and cross a four lane highway to get to anywhere else, I think your morals will be safe here.
Spent two nights here on business and it was perfectly acceptable. The international staff were nice, breakfast reasonable if not special, location pretty good for the airport with a regular shuttle available. The pool is "Tampa's biggest", allegedly, which seems odd given that this is the land of plenty. It's possibly 20 yards long but in an odd configuration; it's nowhere near as big as the picture at the top of this page, which suggests this is a monster resort! It's not. It's on a corner plot.
The room seems to have been recently refurbished with comfortable bed and a very large HD TV with real, genuine HD channels. However, the doors etc. were clearly original features and looked a little tired. Not a significant reason to criticise the hotel.
On balance, whilst being an aging member of the chain gang, this property is certainly comfortable and I'd stay here again. Juding by what I saw of the outside of some of the other accommodation in this area, you could do a lot worse. Is it worth $150? Just about.
