1.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Worn out bed Actually saw bugs almost immediately Wound up not staying in the room and drove home Room was affordable but pretty ghetto

The floor hadn't been washed in weeks. We had to throw away our socks when we left. My husband had to buy new runners because his old ones smelled so bad from wearing them after walking around the room in his stocking feet. The bar fridge was covered in rust spots inside and out. We took our luggage with us everytime we left the property because we didnt trust the area. We never did unpack. We ended up checking out a day early. We only stayed more than one night because we thought our pre-payment was unrefundable. We finally left because we couldnt stand it anymore. We are surprised this hotel was on your website and recommend you remove it.

I checked out a night early . But I still had to pay for it. I brought my own bedding. So, my expectations weren't very high. The people that work there were polite and helpful.

would never recommend this hotel to anyone after being there for one hour and killing three bugs and looking at the cleanliness of everything else in the room I checked out immediately and i know I will not get back the money that I spent for the room but I slept in my car because I didn't wanna take any chances

You get what you pay for!!!!! Not a great area of Tampa. The rooms are run down and have roaches. This could be because most of the guest are using this motel as permanent living. Not the friendliest staff and most don't speak or understand English. On the positive, real close to interstate.

This is the worst hotel in the area! Location is in the ghetto. The rooms are dirty with pads and tampons all over. Burn holes in the curtains and bed sheets! They smelled like they've never been washed. The door to the bathrooms didn't close and the AC was broken in one of our rooms and they didn't refund or give a discount for the inconvenience of having to have the door opened in a unsafe area. The breakfast that they promise is filled with roaches overall I would NEVER recommend this hotel !

I booked last minute and this hotel was available. I booked for 2 nights but only stayed 1. My door wouldn't shut properly, the guys next door partied all night and it was extremely loud. The floors were filthy and the tub felt like I was going to fall through.

Came here's thinking a casino was connected or close to hotel not down the road but over all was a nice hotel I would definitely come back

Wow not a great choice. King bed was dropping in the middle walls were dirty bathroom was dirty. Room smelled horrible and right in the middle of a not so good area. I will never return to this hotel.

Was not cleaned, card did not work on door they have us, had to get a new one

It was a nice safe place with easy access to the interstate.

The minute I got there I felt very uneasy, people just loitering around for no reason. I thought I saw street walkers and people selling drugs. The minute I arrived in my room I noticed the floor to the room was just recently washed with too much detergent, so the floor was very slippery, and with an unknown detergent that would not dry. The residence next to my room seemed like they were a family of six that would not keep quiet. I asked to be moved to another room. The only thing nice about this place was the receptionist, she was too nice to be working in a place like this. I glad I was only staying for one night, I would definitely never bring my family to this place. Also the phone to my room could not even call the front desk. I paid roughly $80, They should not charge more than $35, and that would be stretching it.

Needed a one night stay before a cruise. They're trying to remodel but definitely need to get newer furniture. Night stands were old and beat up and the chair in the room looked like it was from the 70's. Vanity in the bathroom looked terrible also. Okay I guess for the money but would look for a better place next time.

Older hotel that has been nicely remolded. However the shower did not work, made for an unpleasant stay. Was also disappointing that the hotel was not within walking distance to either Ybor City or the Casino and eluded to. It is in an area of town you wold not want to walk after dark. Lots of sketch pedestrian traffic and panhandlers hanging out around the perimeter of the property and neighboring gas stations.

The Staff has been helpful, especially with mother using a wheelchair. The housekeeping staff has been wonderful, and I love that each and every room has a mini fridge a microwave, and a hairdryer.

Had lots of fun great areathe casino wasn't very far the pool is really clean the area was convenient close to everything around have a great time I would recommend this room great price

The staff was very fast at checking me in which was good because I arrived at 2:00 am after a long drive. The rooms were clean and they had flat screen TVs which was nice! I would definitely come back if the room was still a good price.

This is a perfectly fine hotel for when you're on the road and just need a place to crash for the night before moving on early the next day. The location is not in the best part of town, but aside from that, this was a perfectly acceptable motel.

unsafe neighborhood. did not like the surrounding neighborhood. I didnot feel i would be safe there.

worst hotel ever stayed at...should be motel...right next to the ghetto...room was nasty....and hotel is run down...would not recommend to anybody!!!

drugs and thugs

I booked last minute and this hotel was available. I booked for 2 nights but only stayed 1. My door wouldn't shut properly, the guys next door partied all night and it was extremely loud. The floors were filthy and the tub felt like I was going to fall through.
