I was able to check in early (1:30 pm),as my room was ready:) The hotel was clean & quiet. The latter is a good thing, given its location on a busy highway. The staff were all very pleasant & helpful:) Rates are reasonable. I suggest booking early, as it fills up & sells out fast. Being new to the Tampa area, I had only booked the first (2) nights of my stay. I didn't realize that the NFL game was being held in town that Thursday evening. Rooms for W & Th nights were at a premium both here & at other hotels also. While I was glad I was able to stay there (due to a last minute cancellation), I was charged a higher rate for those (2) weeknights ($35-$45 per night), which I didn't realize until post-checkout. Having had an early AM flight, I'm not sure if my AAA discount wasn't applied to those last (2) evenings, but am inquiring at this time.
The complimentary breakfast was very good, with something for everyone. My only suggestions are that they add a) cartons of skim milk & b) more fresh fruit options other than just apples (bananas, oranges).The hotel is accessible by walking to many things. However, a local shuttle service would be nice within a 5 mile radius for sightseeing purposes. Pool & weight room were small, but nice to have available)!!
Thank you very much for your great service & hospitality:)!! less

Thank you very much for your kind and detailed review of our hotel! We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay and greatly appreciate your feedback. We are currently revamping our entire breakfast which will soon offer hot items such as bacon, eggs, sausage, etc. We typically offer at least two types of fresh fruit, so I apologize that you only had one fresh fruit option during your stay. Happy to see that you enjoyed the convenient location, hotel amenities, and hospitality. We hope to see you again soon!
