Recent guest reviews

For what I went to the hotel for the price was excellent

First room was made and the second was a little dingy.

Called for new sheets Blue stains all over them Never brought new ones Next night , same thing.

Ceiling was peeling and caving in, looked Nothing like the picture and there was a towel hanging in the bathroom as if the room had been half cleaned before checkin

We had a refrigerator that had old moldy food in it. Dirty wash clothes left hanging in the shower, air conditioner would kick off and then felt like the heat was on. For a supposedly newer renovated hotel it was pretty disgusting!

Nice hotel. Has all the amenities you need for a short stay. Very clean rooms and good staff. Quiet. I've stayed here twice and will have no difficulty finding this hotel on my next Tampa trip.

1. Ran down and trashy looking inside out. 2. Cross the parking lot from some a shady "Hooters" type of a joint with their clientele walking around. Didn't feel safe at all. 3. Horrible rooms: holes in the ceiling, dirt, stains all over beds. 4. Smell of weed everywhere.

Great hotel for the price and friendly staff who helped with our requests.

Not a pleasant place to stay. Hotel is aging. Much need of renovation. However is close to casino.

If you like the constant smell of marijuana, then it's right up your alley. Hotel is runned down, dirty, and loud at night

It was just ok. We got what we paid for. still, could have been better.

Good room, close to the Fairgrounds and Wing House for late night food!

It's was a nice hotel for the price we paid. We always stay here when we are in town. Although there's no pool, we were close to Busch Gardens.

This hotel was an absolute disappointment. Don't get me wrong, I know I wasn't paying a lot of money for the room, but when I stay in a hotel, I do NOT expect large spiders in the corners, cobwebs, cracked ceilings, and walls so paper thin that the Tampa Fairgrounds were clearly resonating in my room at 9pm. I asked for a different room to get away from the loud fairgrounds but they said no, it would make no difference. That and since my room was next to the front desk, it was EXTREMELY loud with people shouting constantly and BLARING their bass-infested car stereo speakers with no concern for any guests in the hotel. The hotel did nothing to help us out. I considered moving to the Holiday Inn Express that night but ultimately decided I did not want to throw away my money because they wouldn't give me a refund. AVOID THIS HOTEL!

Perfect location for big car event at fairgrounds.

Nice clean comfortable king deluxe room with micro, fridge,coffee pot, & safe. Quick drive to Hard Rock Casino. Easy check-in on 921 with friendly helpful clerk. We only stayed 1 night to go to casino, but would definitely stay there again.

Good hotel location for concerts, Has a Winghouse restaurant out front. Overall hotel room was clean and updated. Also comfortable. Front staff was nice.

plus, the latest checkout they would accommodate is 11:30 am, a whopping 30 minutes after normal checkout. Why?! This dump of a motel was practically empty at the time!!!

The hotel is good location for concerts at mid florida amphitheater.

Hotel was less expensive than others in the area. The bed was fairly comfortable. The pillows were not fluffy at all. The bath tub had not been cleaned out. The room had a refrigerator and a microwave which was nice. The TV had a good selection of channels. It's right by the fairgrounds and close to the casino.
