My worst hotel experience ever.

The room was dirty when we got there. There was trash on the floor. We didn't have enough towels and instead of bringing them to us they told us to come up front and get them. This hotel is obviously some sort of a weekend party place for locals. It was extremely loud and noisy with lots of parties going on. The loud music and parties are completely inappropriate for families. The hotel is located on a main street with very heavy traffic. We heard sirens all night long. The noise was so loud at the hotel I called the front office and ask them for assistance because people were playing loud music and partying outside the hotel clerk actually yelled at me for calling to complain. After about 10 minutes, he finally came outside and asked the individuals who were partying to take the party inside because they were getting complaints from the other guests. During his speech he pointed to my hotel room door. When I complained to the morning clerk , I was told I was welcome to stay somewhere else because they wouldn't have a problem filling the room. I said I'd be happy to if I could get a refund and the clerk actually laughed at me.

Terrible

Room was filthy, parking was cramped and long term residents sitting on patio furniture drinking beers all over the place. Room had exposed wires and filth everywhere. We slept on top of the covers. Very disgusting. Front desk didnt care at all.

Gross

I had no choice but to stay here because all other hotels were full. I usually stay at much nice hotels but I thought i could tuff out 2 nights. It was just a bad experience. Staff was nice but the floors and room were just old and nasty. I would never stay there again.

Wi-Fi

Wireless internet connection not stable; either dropping or slow or hanging or not connecting at all. If you need internet, you better stay away from Super 8 Tampa near Busch Gardens.

Be Aware

I reserved a two bed double occupancy room and when I checked in, I was told they (the hotel) did not use the same terminology and they put me in a room with a Full size bed (not the Queen size they claimed it was) and wanted to charge more to "upgrade" to a two bed room. My reservation confirmation said Two beds and I was told there was nothing they could do.

Picture does not meet expectations

The hotel was clean, but picture does not accurately depict location. It is by the interstate, but my wife did not feel safe.
