Our Tampa hotel is only two miles from the fast-paced excitement of the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, and three miles from the Amphitheatre and Florida State Fairgrounds. Enjoy a great day outdoors with family or friends at Busch Gardens and Adventure Island theme parks located just four miles away. Enjoy a wild day at the Florida Aquarium or the Lowry Park Zoo that are minutes away. Visit the campuses of USF or UT which are conveniently located nearby. Learn and explore something new while visiting the MOSI or spend a day playing at one of the nearby beaches.

Good for a quick night passing through

This is a perfectly fine hotel for when you're on the road and just need a place to crash for the night before moving on early the next day. The location is not in the best part of town, but aside from that, this was a perfectly acceptable motel.

Don't stay here

First- we booked a non smoking room, and our room smelled of old stale smoke. It was horrible Second- there were people hanging out in the parking lot all night long asking us to buy coupon books and asking us for spare change or to buy cigarettes off of us Third- the walls were paper thin. We could hear every conversation in the room next to us, along with their screaming infant all night (didn't help that every time the child cried the parents screamed back We couldn't check out fast enough. I'll never stay there again

Not too bad

If you're looking for something cheap and decent, you're at the right place. No extras or extreme details, but not a bad place to lay your head.

Last Minute Booking

Elevators were broken, TV remote control was missing, temp outside was about 76 and the pool was freezing cold. Most hotels I've been to will allow for a complimentary late checkout, but they charged $5/hour

Never Returning Ever

I have been to many inexpensive and old hotels, but this is by far the worst hotel experience I have ever had. At a glance and upon arrival I had an open mind and knew what to expect ... or so I thought. The area seemed unsafe, the service was horrible, and didn't get an hour of sleep due to several reasons. At one point they ran out of towels and only had one person on staff. He had to go to the laundry area to grab towels for us, and returned with dirty, smokey, stained towels that were damp. Clearly used, and very unsanitary. We had just witnessed a shooting in the area, and when returning to our rooms late at night, we could not get into our rooms due to key resetting. It felt very unsafe. The breakfast in the morning was extremely limited. The front desk lost our friends reservations and we were delayed obtaining our room. Our bed had a blood stain on the inside cover for the matress. I could go on.... but these are just a few of the bad experiences that we had. I will say that their air conditioning was great - but that's it. When my friend complained the front desk didn't do anything. She then complained to the manager through email later - they offered her a 20% discount on her next stay at that hotel. I laughed. I couldn't believe that's all they had to offer, not to mention we wouldn't go back there if they paid us.

Nightlife tip: Short drive from hotel

Ybor City is fun to party, but don't even think about walking. Take a cab or have a D.D. The area and walk to is very unsafe.

Not bad for the price,poor neighbor hood

Room was nice good sized and well arranged for a dorm room/economy priced motel. Facility was clean, well maintained, some staff very out going and friendly. One staff member was not, and even though we had requested a late 1pm checkoutfor an additional charge which we had to pay and was visiable on our room reciept, arranged by same staff member,room phone rang at 11:07 we could not be heard by caller. then he actually gave a brief/barely audible knock on our door at 11:15 and then quicky tried to enter room we were showering and in a state of undress thankfully my husband had the security bar across the door latch. Facility location was poor, no food avaliable at hotel and nothing within walking distance except a gas station convience store were we were accosted by at least 5 people of various age ranges and cultural diversities begging adamantly for money. 2 of which were seriously drunk. We canceled our plans for a precruise party as we were afarid leaving our personal items unattended in our room which did not have a safe was not a good idea. Wich I think was an excellent precaution as our knock and enter staff wandered by our room on an average of once an hour until we closed the drapes at 10 pm. We were on the 3 rd floor as far from the offce and reception as we could get. I would like to say it was for security reasons that they were making security rounds but it felt more like they were casing our room to see if we had left yet. They had provided us with a taxi phone number so we could set up transport to our precruise party and to the port the next day. The phone in room did not work/ It would ring but we could not answer it or call out. If you are looking for 1 night accomadations with no plans to go out it is a good place to stay,clean,comfortable beds, nice pool,with internet access. Local Dominos delivers and food was hot,tasty and service was friendly and fast. Ps WALK TO CONVINCE STORE FOR COLD DRINKS/snacks BEFORE IT STARTS TO GET Dark.

Nothing special

Hotel staff was courteous. No wifi in the room, like it advertises. Also, the shower was ridiculously low to the point that washing my hair was difficult.
