Recent guest reviews

nice place, just a little disappointed on day we arrived pool was not ready for swimming, due to being patched had to refill which was a day wasted for grandson, but friendly staff gave direction to nearest beach area

Bulet hole in window, lights burnt out, plugs coming out of the walls, grimy hair dryer...

Excellent location. Room was good. Very noisey at night. People walking and talking at wee hours in the morning.

this is my 4th year in a row and I will be back for a 5th :-)

!_ MY RESERVATION VIA ORBITZ WAS NOT RECEIVED BY FRONT DESK. I HAD A CONFIRMATION WAS ACCOMODATED W A NICE ROOM IN THE FRONT PART OF THE HOTEL. PAID FULL PRICE AND AGREED ON A 1PM CHECK OUT....FROM 12.NOON, THE CLEANING STAFF KNOCK 3 TIMES...7 LAST WAS KIND OF AGGRESSIVE OBVIOUSLY THIS HOTEL HAS SOME COMMUNICATION PBS CLERC AT CHECKING WAS VERY NICE AND ACCOMMODATING WHEN I WAS ALMOST OUT,. ORBITZ SHARES A LARGE PART OF MY "EVALUATION"

The staff was great, but the inn itself was less than desirable. We were only there for one night until our cruise. They had complimentary airport and cruise shuttles. The hotel is extremely outdated. It felt like going back to the 60s. There was mold in the bathroom and nothing but furniture has been changed in decades in the rooms. The check-in and main building is nicely updated.

Good to stay for one night. The hotel is in middle of housing location so not much to look around but a great option if you are looking to spend a night before going on a cruise. Breakfast was good.

Old motel, noisy, needs to be totally updated or torn down

Hotel is on Dale Mabry which is both good and bad.. Good because there's lots of stuff nearby.. Bad because of the noise and other factors. One of the Other factors was a Van full of people who were apparently staying the night in the parking lot.. Another Other factor was the bottomless mermaid in their pool that night.. Btw.. The pool area is nice.. Just a little sketchy on the crowd.. A couple of things that need to be addressed.. Beds felt like they were purchased at Lumber Liquidators and the grounds could use a DEEP cleaning..

If your are not in the luxury rooms the general feeling is "Motel Like", overall clean but just a room. Great for short stay, the small caffe / restaurant food is good; locally made from scratch and yeast great. Convenient location, very close to the airport.

Nice, small motel in quiet neighborhood. Near everything I need for my 2 day monthly trips to Tampa.

The lighting semi worked with some blinking lights. The hairdryer didn't work and was sticky. The tv was small. The couches outdated. No towels provided at the pool. No freezer in fridge. Staff was just ok. The gym was ok. Bed was nice and comfy. Not a place I'd go back too.

Super cute hotel, room was nice, beds were comfortable. We only stayed one night but was perfect to stay at when going to a concert at the amphitheater.

Great location. Close to excellent restaurants and major highways for access to airport, beaches and other places throughout the Tampa area. Hotel is a little older but unique experience. Nice pool and Tiki Bar. Rooms were nice, clean and comfortable.

This is a very nice hotel. It doesn't feel like a regular hotel, more like a spa getaway place. Beautiful rooms and decorations nicer than an average hotel. Clean and Comfortable Bed! Nice Bathroom!

Bed was crunchy sounding. Main entry of hotel and pool look fancy as in photos, but the rest of hotel was just plain and cheap.

Gave my room away sent me to another hotel 8 miles away and still charged me for the room

A bit noisy, maids carts are very noisy each morning bumping along by rooms. Central location. Close enough to airport Outdated but comfy

The staff was great, the rooms need to be updated, furniture is old and all scratched up, tv small and no HBO, lamps needed bulbs replaced, over priced for the room type and no free continental breakfast. The only good thing was that it was quiet.

601 S Dale Mabry Hwy Tampa FL
