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!

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.

Do not stay here

Hotel was under construction and rooms that had not been upgraded were TERRIBLE. Even knowing I paid a small amount for it I was uncomfortable and wished I had splurged a bit more for cleanliness. Received an upgrade the following night to a nicer room and felt better. MAKE SURE YOU ASK FOR AN UPDATED ROOM. Makes all the difference. Once the hotel is renovated it seems as though it will be beautiful...

Ramada Westshore

Employees at the front desk were nice. The hotel was renovating as they were bought by another chain. the lobby was very nice, even smelled good. Thats as far as it went. I was told only a handful of rooms were renovated (75) and none were available. The room they did give me had an odor and the carpets were stained throughout. Everything made me feel like I was staying at a no tell motel. My room was surrounded by empty rooms that we being worked on so there was construction debris all around. I felt like I was the only one in that part of the hotel. I would not rent from the again. I paid 79.00 for the night and its sister hotel around the block, which was much much nicer, was only 89.00 for the night. The 10 bucks would have been worth it.
