Stayed here for 2 nights before flying out of TPA. Booked 2 rooms. Check in was ok, put us on second floor across from each other. Room 207, smelled like bleach, to cover the mildew smell, bathroom door was totally off its hinges and would not close. The other room, 208 seemed ok until you took a shower, then mildew smell that permiated the whole bedroom even with the bathroom fan on constantly and door closed. Asked housekeeping to pour some bleach down the drains, didn't help...now it smelled like bleach and mildew! Breakfast was ok, until things started to breakdown. One lone staffer was trying her best to manage front desk and buffet area...she was totally overwhelmed. The ongoing construction was haphazard to say the least. They really should have closed off sections or totally close during the renovation...this is a very TIRED Bestwestern and in no way would it be deemed a PLUS. On second day of our stay, got to room and card key didn't work, had to go back to desk to get new keys. The wifi worked well and free parking and right off the I75 so it is a 50 min drive to TPA via I275 and Sunshine Causeway Bridge throu St Petersburg. less

I would like to start with apology for inconvenience during your stay.
I would like to apology for any issues you had to encounter during renovations. We are renovating our rooms with new bathroom vanities, tiles, carpets, furniture and new paint in the room which would give fresh look to our guests. We would love to see you again in future so you can experience freshness at our property.
