This is my go to hotel while in Tampa. Service staff is 1st rate. The pool is beautiful. Clean comfortable rooms. Convenient access to anything you could be in town for. About 15 minutes from the airport. 5 minutes from USF. Nearby shopping, restaurants. Close to I-275 as well as I-4. For the money, I don't think you can do...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 29 January 2017

I needed a place to stay near the VA Hospital while my husband had surgery. They gave me a VA discount which I thought was wonderful. Nice, big, clean place. Comfy beds and quiet. A little road noise but not bad. Did not have the breakfast. Would stay again.

Construction made getting around the hotel a bit clumsy. The chairs in the ballroom were very uncomfortable for short legged people like me. They were just a bit high and made it hard to rest my foot on the floor. sitting for long periods was just painful. The staff was superb. I was especially impressed with the waiter who removed...

It was fine I did have higher expectations but our bed was wicked comfortable. The towel rack near the sink was broken but not a big deal. The breakfast way disappointing the didn't keep up with the food and was too crowded.

Stayed for two nights at this location, and it's not bad by any stretch. The exterior of the rooms is a touch dated and could use some TLC, but the interior isn't half bad. The furniture is upgraded, a new TV, and a bed that I got a decent night sleep in. I would recommend requesting a room not near...

This is a very plain "hotel". Except for the pool/courtyard area and the lobby entrance pictured the exterior to this "hotel" (which is way more "motel") makes you feel like you have checked into a 2 star motel in a seedy neighbourhood. I think it was hard to shake off the feeling but the inside of the room has been...

After a long journey from RI, we were eager to check into our room and rest up for a full day at Busch Gardens. While the clerks at the Front Desk were professional and friendly, we were shocked to arrive at our room to find that the door was wide open. Unsure if the door was left open intentionally and...
