Great for Yankee Spring Training

The hotel is comfortable and you cannot get more convenient for Yankee Spring Training. Only a short walk to Steinbrenner Field.

business trip

Great friendly staffing and location, but the main issue is that the rooms smells really bad.. this is really not something you think u will have in a Holiday Inn hotel.. i travel a lot all over USA, and this was the worst Holiday Inn hotel so far, and again, just because of the really bad smell.. ( smells like humidity and old rooms)

Nice hotel

I was very surprised the hotel was clean and the rooms were large. You get a hot breakfast for free and free WIFI. The hotel is close to everything walking distance from the stadiums, Close to Bush Gardens and Clearwater Beach.. The staff is helpful and the rooms are clean. Well Worth the Value for your money. Also has a hot tub and pool. Me and my husband would stay here again.

Not Very Impressed

Our experience was poor. We rented a queen suite so we would have a couch with a pull out bed to use. The hotel did not have enough blankets to give us a blanket for the pull out bed. However, they did give us some extra sheets to use as a blanket. (Really, not enough blankets?) The mattress on the pull out bed was wore thin. One could feel the wires that the mattress lays on through the mattress. There were no towels in the pool area. Multiple guests went to the front desk to ask for towels. One would think the desk clerk would refill the towel bin in the pool area. He didn't. so eventually when we were done swimming, I went to the front desk dripping wet in the lobby and asked for towels. The towels he gave me were the same little towels that are in the shower for placing on the floor. We have stayed in many different hotels. This is by far the worst hotel we have stayed in. The only good thing about this hotel is that it is close to the airport and football stadium.

It Doesn't Get Any Better

A large room, quiet, clean, uncluttered with unneeded furniture, all lights in working order with bright bulbs, Cable TV with easy to access stations, etc. Accommodating staff with shuttle that can be used for shopping trips within a good distance of the motel. It doesn't get any better than this!

Great Location, Food. Just need to be a little cleaner

Overall hotel stay was great! Great location, just about 15 mins from TPA and there are many good selections for restaurants around. I didn't like the smoke smell of the hotel. I stayed on a non smoking floor, but the whole journey to the room felt like I was surrounded by smoke. The room was neat and organized, but wish it could be a little homy. The bathroom counter had wood frame exposed from the bottom.
