1.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Wonderful location and a very comfy bed. Would stay there again. Convenient location for Universal.

It was just okay. Very dry staff. Condescending staff

Room was clean, staff was nice, BUT continental breakfast was cereal, juice and coffee.... and food NOT allowed back in room, had to be consumed in dining area ONLY

We were very disappointed with the hotel, the staff was rude, the room was inadequate, the plug in the bathroom area did not work at all, it look and felt very dirty... It looks like the hotel needs some work and upgrades....I know we will not stay there again.

The only thing that I can say nice about the place was the desk staff. The hotel is on a frontage road next to an elevated highway, bad neighborhood, seedy strip club next door, strange people milling about. I was actually scared to stay! Matresses left outside on the balcony, paint and wallpaper pealing, light fixtures missing covers, bathroom door broken at the bottom........I could go on forever. I know it was a cheep hotel but do yourself a favor and spend a little more then this!

Basic accomodation-consistent with what I expected. Room was clean. Didn't have iron. No complaints.

The heat did not work and I was not aware it was next to a strip club. These are things people might want to know

This is an older hotel that has been redone. It has very nice amenities but could use sprucing up. Breakfast waffles were nice but the only other thing offered to eat was two kinds of cold cereal. Room was very large and so was the bathroom. Beds were a bit hard but I like a soft bed. Room and common areas were clean and common areas were well lit. We were not there long enough to use pool or hot tub but they looked nice and clean. We took a second night as the hotel was quiet, close to where we had to go and reasonably prices. It is in a commercial part of town but it is on the access road not the main highway to access in and out was very easy and safe. Overall for the price I would recommend this hotel for any type of traveler.

The hotel manager (front desk person) was rude, the room smelled like smoke (it was non-smoking) and the room was shabby nasty looking/smelling. I will NOT use this motel again. The parking lot was a hoodlum hangout. Very disapointed.

The hotel was nice overall,rooms needed minor ceiling repair/paint.The also was no smoke alarm in room but other wise it was a nice quiet night. Construction in the area but not too bad.

The front office service was okay.

My room was very large and included a sofa. The bathroom was the biggest I have ever had in a hotel when not staying in a suite. The room was clean. The furniture was older but that is ok. The building was quiet. For the price it was a good deal. I wouldn't hesitate to stay again.

Was on a golf trip. Poor front desk with no info where to eat or where anything was.

The overall stay at the Motel was ok. It is in a good location alot of places to eat and quite a few attractions also close by. It didnt take long to get to from the Tampa Airport and that was a plus. The room was your average room although I thought they could have given you more ammenities. We did use the free wireless internet which was easy to use. The overall experience was an average rating to us.

Everything would have been great if it had not been for the horrible smell in the room. The room was non smoking but evidently was used very hard as a smoking room . The smell of the room deodorizer that was used to mask the smell was almost worse than the cigarette smell. The carpet and vanity had numerous cigarette burns. If not for the above all would have been excellent but the smell was noxious. It was a shame because the room amenities, location, breakfast were all very satisfactory.
