Nice staff, clean and spacious, super convenient

Would recommend Wed, Jan 7, 2015
This is really a very nice place to stay...wished I'd had just one more day to enjoy the pool! The rooms are spacious, immaculate and modern. The staff was extremely helpful. The continental breakfast was served up in a spacious dining area, the breakfast bar kept clean through the morning. Excellent coffee available all night long! There was a tad bit of confusion about where the hotel was actually located - when the car rental place looked it up they said it was an hour's drive from the Tampa airport when it really is only about 15 minutes. I only had confidence once I saw it listed somewhere as "East Tampa". It isn't convenient for folks who are staying overnight between planes, but for those landing in Tampa to go on, or for those driving through, it's really easy to get to... right off the 75 exit, and lots of restaurants around the general area. A+

Coming from the ramada gateway in Orlando this hotel was amazing in comparison. I'm most picky about cleanliness and this hotel was very clean from the bathroom to the bed sheets. Not only was the hotel clean but it came with complimentary breakfast which was actually not bad. I would definitely recommend this hotel to others!

WONDERFUL HOTEL FACILITY

Would recommend Sun, Aug 24, 2014
This must be the best kept secret in Tampa. The staff, service, amenities and cleanliness were impeccable. It is a GREAT value for the cost. I will certainly make my reservations here anytime I have need to stay in the Tampa area.

Nightlife hint

The hotel provides a shuttle service to the casinos. A great courtesy to their guest.
