Needs noise control...

Okay, I got a good deal but at what expense..... From the loud Jamaican guy outside/next door to the renovation crew, there is major room for improvement.... Renovations or okay but not next door to your guests when you clearly have open rooms to place us elsewhere.... Not to mention the fact that I felt like I was in a scary movie when I went to get ice or heat my food on the other side of the hotel..... Then even after checking with the front desk about extending my stay, my door keys were deactivated. The only thing positive was the location and the price.... I guess you get what you pay for.... Thanks anyway....

Great for early flights out of Tampa

I have stayed at this property on several occasions. They have a park and fly deal that is ideal for business or pleasure travelers with early departing flights. You spend the night, get up and grab the shuttle for the airport. You can leave your vehicle for up to 14 days which saves you on parking costs. Then on your return you call them and they send the shuttle to bring you back to your car. The bad is the property is showing its' age and they are remodeling the rooms. Unfortunately the circa 1970's popcorn ceilings are seriously dated. They used to offer a free continental breakfast but is was discontinued recently. All in all a good deal.

Good value

The room (rug, color) was old-fashioned but clean. The bathroom seemed new renovated. The hotel is close to the airport, the most important for us. The shuttle to airport was only on 45 minutes, it could be more frequent like on each 30 minutes. But for the price we paid, the hotel was a good value

The worst hotel in my life

Housekeeping talking to each too loudly. Dirty towels,an old building and the elevator had stuck on it by the authorities that it is expired. It is take from Ramada just the name.

Needs updating badly

The Manager, Wayne, was what kept me there. I asked for a different room as there was much work going on, where it was super loud and musty. He jumped right on it and gave me mt choice of rooms. Unfortunately, there was so much at this hotel in need of repair, that I honestly cannot recommend it to anyone . The elevators were not working; nor were the ice machine or the lights in the stairway. The rugs were gross and the overall the whole place needed paint. On my last night, the maid came and knocked on my door at 7:30pm, to clean my room. I told her I was all set and she was surprised. My wake up call never came and I would have missed my 5:15am ride had it not been for the fact there was already banging going on somewhere, that it woke me up. Again, Wayne was the best thing at this hotel. Give him a raise, rip up every single rug and paint the place!

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

The West Shore Mall was nearby. They offer a good selection of stores, restaurants and a movie theater. I spent most of my spare time there when I was not attending my conference.

It Is a 2 star on a good day...

The whole experience started off with the worst "free shuttle service" from the airport. after waiting for 30 minutes an no van came around, we called the hotel and were told the shuttle was on the way. After calling again after another 30 minutes, we were again told the shuttle was on the way. Finally a Best Western Shuttle with a Ramada paper taped to the window showed up to pick us up. So when we thought we were heading to our hotel, we went to the best western, dropped off 2 people, but picked up 8 people and then went BACK to the airport to drop off 2 of the people, and then finally we were taken to our hotel... BAD start. Got to the front desk at the hotel and had kind of rude front desk people to check us in, but wasn't expecting much, just picking up a key. Room wasn't really clean, had a musty smell. I was happy we only had to stay there one night. I would NOT recommend this hotel to anyone.

Pre-cruise stay

The hotel was under construction so it was a good value, but our room hadn't been updated yet. Once it's finished it should be nice. Great for an airport layover, close to two malls, and on the HART 30 tampa bus route.

No complimentary breakfasts and hotel under construction

First of- the hotel was under construction and all those workers used to start their job at 8am. A guy working with his (manual) hammer some 5 ft away from your room door. That's not a normal thing. Second- no complimentary breakfast (I used to stay there two years ago and they were there). Now we were sent to the restaurant and breakfast dishes started at $8.95, making a $30 expense for a party of 3. We're stayed there for 3 nights. That totals $90 in additional expense. Thanks for the great service.

Just average

We arrived early off a cruise ship so had to wait awhile for a room. The lobby was comfortable and I was able to use their business center to print our boarding passes for our next day flights. Rooms need upgrading. Location good.
