Nice & Affordable.
The hotel while nothing fancy, was affordable and adequate for my short stay. The staff was friendly, and helpful, and check-in and out was easy and efficient. There are plenty of shopping and restaurants near-by, and the hotel is within minutes of the Tampa airport.
Good, clean budget motel.
I stayed here for two nights for the ACC championship game. Most of the hotel seemed to be fans in town for the game. Did not have any of the problems of some of the negative reviewers below. The night desk clerk was very responsive and even provided us with assistance when some other motel guests tried to steal a cab we had called. Housekeeping was on point.
Everything is close by- lots of restaurants, Longhorn steakhouse practically on-site, even a couple "shoe shows" but the area was more commercial than slummy. Wal-Mart and Best Buy a block away and Raymond James Stadium was only a mile away. All in all I was very pleased with my stay for the price I paid.
Not the Ritz but great for the price.
We stayed here prior to our cruise. Our guidlines "if it's got clean sheets and secure" it'll be fine. The hospitality was superb, close to stores, restaurants and it's just a quaint motel. Sure there's a stip joint across the 4 lane street and down the block but never noticed anything out of color. The room was clean and didn't smell. The A/C was adequate and the noise from it wasn't over bearing (like a window unit is). We'd stay here again without any hesitation.
A well-known, mid-priced national and international hotel chain where kids always stay free..
