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.

Great value for money & really friendly staff

The staff at this hotel were really helpful and friendly. The room was clean and comfortable. The only downside was that the hotel was a bit out of the way for getting to and from the airport if you're reliant on public transport and have a heavy suitcase (like I was). If you're driving then it probably isn't an issue because it's just off the I4. The pool was open from dawn 'til dusk and was a nice place to spend a day relaxing. I felt that it was really good value for money.

Ybor trip

Great location, and helpful staff, but bathroom was disgusting. Hair still in the shower. Shower clogged, and hair would float around in the tub. Grossed us out so much, we didn't shower during the stay.
