Howard Johnson Hotel - Tampa Airport/Stadium
Ranked #127 of 163 Hotels in Tampa
Reviewed 1 February 2017

We stayed here prior to going on a cruise and were not expecting much. It was on a busy highway but within walking distance to a few decent places to eat. This hotel is very old and in desperate need of updating. It was clean enough for a one night stay, but I would not stay any longer. They had a shuttle service from the airport that was combined with 2 or 3 other hotels. We were picked up promptly when we call from the airport and they offered a shuttle to the cruise port if you let them know when you checked in that you needed it. The breakfast was just coffee and bagels so we went next door to Starbucks. There was a pool on the premises but we did not use it. Beware that there are no elevators in this motel. We had to drag our luggage up and down the stairs which was pretty difficult when you have a bad back. However, for the price I was happy to just have a clean place to stay before we went on our cruise. We never felt unsafe in any way as others have commented.

Room Tip: Ask for a first floor room if you cannot carry your luggage up stairs.

Alex the front desk clerk, treated us like we were paying by the hour. Now we know why. Some Strippers had rooms for spill over from the Club! Next there was no place to park our vehicle in a safe view of our room. Alex, then threaten to have all cars towed because one sign said No Parking. We tried to explained to Alex, who does not speak English very well. That parking is allowed, where the parking lines showed. For 4 days we were stuck there. Upon checkout Alex charged us $600! The floors were dirty! We had to walked in our shoes - as the carpet was black and dingy. I had to clean the tub before we bathe, as the tub was brown with dirt, soap scum, and body residue. We did have a nice view of three (3) Strip Clubs. One Strip Club shares the parking lot with the hotel!! OMG. The Kids. We pre-paid for the great discount we got for RSVP'ing early. Now we know better. Upon check out, we had the same check in clerk - Alex. Oh boy, Alex did not understand that we had already pre-paid for our 4 days hotel stay - even showing him our CC pending charges did not help! Alex only understood that he did NOT charge so he had too CHARGE us! Do NOT Stay here unless you are desperate!
