Nice value hotel

This is a nice little hotel for the price. Room was spacious and very clean. The air conditioner was loud, but not enough to keep me from sleeping. The cafe served pretty good breakfast and I got to sit out on the patio which is covered and has a pretty koi pond. The pool area looked nice but it rained during most of my trip so I didn't get to go swimming. The location of the hotel is pretty convenient. The highway it's on isn't too exciting but downtown Tampa is close by, there's a nice mall less than 2 miles away and the HART bus stops right outside of the hotel. The Tampa airport is pretty close too and the hotel has its own shuttle. It only comes if you call and request it though so make sure you have the hotel's number when you land. I would stay here again.

Not Recommended

The hotel did not meet my expectations at all. The location was great and central to downtown Tampa. However, the staff was not accommodating to appliances that were broken upon arrival and made no attempts to correct them or change our room. I was strongly consider bring your own cleaning products for the bathrooms.

older than the pictures

The pictures online show that this is a fantastic hotel, but we were a little disappointed when arriving. It is a just so-so hotel, and we will not spend over $100 for it (although we used a coupon).

Cruising Vacation

This is a hidden gem - the hotel is a sweet boutique that is better than most chains. The staff is extremely friendly, the restaurant food is very good. The restaurant staff accommodated us even though it was 10 minutes to closing the kitchen, and the food was very good. The pool was very clean, and the chairs around the pool are very comfortable. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to get away from the big hotel chains.

Business Trip

I traveled to Tampa on business and found this hotel to be convenient to everything, including Starbucks, which is always a consideration for me. :) The junior suite had plenty of room to stretch out and relax as well as to do work. They have made a lot of upgrades from the last time I was here, including the jacuzzi tub. However, some things are still older and I had to have maintenance come up to look at my TV. They were able to fix it, though and I enjoyed my stay.
