Tampa trip

Our stay was alright. The room was still dirty when we checked in. We cleaned out bottles and other dirty items out from under the beds and disposed of them. The room next door was extremely loud and you could hear them beat their children. Besides the negative things the continental breakfast was great and the pool was great when it was open. Overall we tried to not stay in the room as much and went out to travel around the area and site see.

Good Value

This was a nice hotel for a low price. The room was not big, nor was there anything special about it, but it was cheap, and there was nothing wrong with it, so I was very satisfied. The breakfast was not much, but it was free, so nobody has a right to complain about it.

Nightlife tip: Short drive from hotel

There is a bar just next to the hotel, but it was closed on Sunday and Monday, so I had to drive, but I did not have to drive far. There is plenty of fun to be enjoyed within a couple miles of this hotel.

Inflation is not relative to what you get!

This place is very old or poorly maintained. My bed sheets were stained with facial dirt, loose hair and who knows what else. I always inspect "fully" before using public sheets. There was a dead roach at each corner of the room and dirt and hair in the shower. I was very disappointed because prices just keep climbing but the rooms stay the same or worst.

College move in

Our hotel was fine considering we were only there to sleep. Our room didn't cool off until I took the temp all the way down to 60*. One of the light bulbs in the room was out and upon first flush the toilet overflowed with toilet paper being what I blew my nose in. It took someone 20 minutes to come and plunge toilet and wipe floor with towel. Also some better weatherstripping on the door would help in keeping the room a bit quieter. I guess you really do get what you pay for.

Stay Away from this hotel

A bad experience with a room full of roaches and dirty bed sheets. Then they gave us another room and the rug was fully wet from a leak of the AC so you cant take your shoes off to stay dry and put no bags on the floor. Overall pay a couple bucks more and get another hotel.
