My main complaint was the room next to us was having a loud blast of music after 9pm like they’re having a party. Our room vibrated from the deep bass. We have kids and we couldn’t sleep. I called staff to do something, nope, no one came upstairs. So we just had to check out at 9:30pm and drove back home. The area beyond USF are kinda sketchy. And I also don’t recommend going to their nearest Walmart and dollar tree. Hotel Staff are nice and friendly. Breakfast was okay. It was a little dried out already and not as fresh. Gravy was very limited, one day it was empty another say it was only half. They don’t make much. Cleanliness of the room was awful. Carpet was nasty, you can see all the stains. Door needs some wiping, I saw a lot of markings/splash from something. AC was very very dusty. I was sneezing from it all day. Overall experience was terrible!

This was the dirtiest hotel I have ever stayed at. I do not recommend this place at all. The dust was everywhere which triggered my son to have allergies and asthma issues. The carpet was stained and the toilet had rings in the center. By the way, I told the front desk and they had us search for a clean room and we never found one. Do not go to this hotel.

THE BATHROOM WAS IN VERY BAD SHAPE WITH A DOOR THAT DIDN'T OPEN, MILDEW, BROKEN TILES, AND WALLPAPPER FALLING OFF

Poor service dirty room my second day did not even refresh towels dirt accumulated on corners filthy carpeted

Las alfombras estan muy sucias me dieron una toalla con rotos no tiene caja fuerte

Even though the front desk staff was welcoming and friendly, the hotel itself was in bad shape. The first thing we found in our room was that the corridor light was out and then my daughter saw a cockroach that we have to kill. Second, the carpet was dusty and dirty and the bathroom had mold on the ceiling because the air extractor wasn't working. Third, the tv furniture was old and bare, the tv was outdated, and the room's phone wasn't working. And, fourth, the hotel's corridors carpet was nasty, and there were not pool towels at all times..

Is ok but I was expecting more. When arrive they give us a room with smoking smell. I had to go to the front desk to ask for another room. The other was fine.

I was pleased with the room and the comfort. I slept well and breakfast was good. My wife didn’t like our first room because it had an Oder she didn’t like. I didn’t notice it. She still insisted on changing rooms. It was a good stay.

It was super clean and the beds were comfortable. The only downside was there was only 1 elevator and we were on the 4th floor.

A really good hotel that has everything going for it including location and price, but I wanted to mention Billi Roswell totally apart. Her friendliness and welcoming attitude made our visit feel special. OK, she adored our granddaughter too and that helped, but she was a wealth of local information and I would ask her to work at my hotel in Kissimmee in a heartbeat. Great buffet breakfast, open and airy, takeout sites right there. We have a new Tampa hotel!

no signs for hotel was not sure we were at right place, semi trucks over night parking in lot next to pool area that were very loud and alot of exhaust fumes. Not great tv service in room.
