Place needs to be demolished an absolute dump and ive stayed at.many

Very basic hotel, but good location. The room was big, but no much tv channels.

The property was nothing like the pictures. Very dirty, run down and old.

Location and price were good. Bed was comfortable. People at check were friendly.

Location is good for exploring south tampa. The only thing needs improve is the stability of WiFi.

The property is located in a easy access area and the staff is. Very nice. But, the room and condition of the property is terrible. The room has a dirt line on the toilet i was afraid to touch anything. I had to go to purchase bleach and sanitizing to be able to touch anything. I think this property has 5 star employees working in 1 star facility.

Smelly, stunk like smoke when we walked in our non smoking room, cock roach In bathroom

Arrived after driving 500 miles, about 9pm, to find out that they wouldn’t have any electricity starting at 7am the next morning..... why wouldn’t you contact your perspective guests and let them know, I had an important business meeting the next morning, mid morning, how would I get cleaned up and ready for that meeting in the dark, no power, so also no hot water AMAZING

The beds were comfortable enough. We didn’t visit the pool. The staff was very friendly. The bathroom wasn’t kept up though. The henges on the door were so rusted it was hard to open and close it.

Old furniture, mosquito in the room. No WiFi singles. Waste of money for Vista-Inn When I told the manager at check out, he respond like he doesn’t care

The bathroom tub/shower needed work. It had a sloppy repair job. I had stayed here before and the room was in good condition. But this room's bathroom was disappointing.

It was mostly quiet. The main problems are a lack luster AC unit that feels like it's not blowing. Lack of amenities, flickering light and light sockets that barely hold the plugs... Not cool for my firestick. Okay for the price. TV was definitely decent. Nice front desk people. The wifi was unsecured but I had a password? Didn't leave for breakfast.

I chose to stay here because of the price was cheaper than other hotels. The room was a little bit dirty and dark. I got bad smell (smoke) in my room. My room had no microwave and refrigerator. I understand that it is fair for this price. Anyway, there was some restaurant nearby like ihop.

Older hotel but clean. Comfortable bed and pillows. Quiet during the night.

I was not happy at all. First off they had bedbugs that bite me and my family the tub didn't drain. I will not go back and I won't be referring anyone to this motel .

We were looking for a pet friendly hotel near Busch Gardens. We brought our boat along with us. There were creepy people hanging out all night in the stairways and balconies smoking and drinking. We had stuff stolen from our boat and at some point in the night we were woken up by someone banging on the door and shaking the door knob. Good thing we brought our dog. Seems more like a $30 hotel in a seedy part of town than a $100 gig near a theme park. Would’ve happily paid more for some security and a good nights sleep.

Sir, I do apologize for the inconvenience. Had we know more in advance, we would have notified all our guests. However, this was completely out of our control and in the hands of Tampa's electric company. We did not find out until super late the night you arrived. We gladly issued you a full refund so you could go elsewhere. Hope you business meeting went well.
