My brief night at the E. Tampa Ho Jo's

Very boistrous fellow guests -- partying loudly and into the wee hours. Also: nearby highway noise was non-stop.

Caring and alert staff

Very convenient location for traveling around the cities. Friendly staff, great service, very reasonable. A lot of close eating places. The only downside is a small amount of traffic noise from I4 if your room is on the North side. I certainly would use again.

acceptable experience

Was ok, at least for the price, but there were some details like the laundry for instance, it was absolutely nasty and the staff was not so friendly and helpful at least at front desk

Ubeatable Location For The Price

We where in Tampa to attend a graduation at the Sun Dome, which made the hotel a perfect location it was about a 10 minute drive away not to many turns. While there we went to the Florida Aqu. which was not that far either, We loved the fact that they had comp breakfast. We also loved the little sub shop not to far from the hotel they have the most amazing Cuban Subs. All in all it was nice the hotel staff is very friendly and it is quiet at night which is very important. It is also right off of the interstate which give you easy access to everything. When visting Tampa I would stay here again.

The WORST

My reservation at this hotel was for 2 weeks. I stayed 3 days and asked for a refund of my money for the rest of the stay. That's how bad it was!

OK Place for a night

Ok place for a night's stay. Wouldn't spend too much time as not very desirable location apart from being close to freeway.

Just passing through town

Decent room for the price but they nickel and dime you for the amenities. Breakfast is free but the hours are 6:30 - 9:30. You could hear people talking as they walked by which kept waking me up. Bed was nice.
