"Close to the cruise port. The hotel was in an old courthouse; not a warm and fuzzy place. I thought it was interesting, but my mom thought it was cold and institutional. There was only a plastic chair in the room for seating. The desk and desk chair were too high for us since we're both short. There was on-site dining, but it wasn't cheap. I'd definitely stay here again.2017-12-05"
"Not worth the price. The hotel room was falling apart and didn't look clean. I was put in a handicap room, which wasn't requested. Don't have high expectations.2023-01-02"
"The hotel was in a busy area, so the noise level on weekends was an issue late at night. The exterior and interior looked great. Clean room with a comfortable bed. Breakfast prices at the on-site restaurant were outrageous, but there was an on-site Starbucks with energetic employees. No airport shuttle, so I used Super Shuttle. If you like to spend money, this is the place to stay.2019-01-16"
"The room was clean, and the hotel staff was nice, polite, and helpful. Stay here.2018-10-15"
"The hotel was safe and within walking distance of activities. The room was clean and stocked, and we were greeted and checked in quickly. I definitely recommend staying here.2022-07-12"
"This is my ideal hotel. The suite was spacious, and the location was good.2019-12-29"
"I wouldn't stay at this hotel again. The room needed remodeling. The carpet was tattered, and there was a roach crawling around. The front desk clerk had an attitude and wasn't informative. She offered parking for $15 a day, but when I pressed her, she admitted that street parking was free on weekends. Find another place to stay.2016-07-11"
"The hotel was clean and close to everything.2018-02-27"
"Worth every penny. The hotel was immaculate, and all the employees were nice. Stay here.2016-08-12"
"Not worth the price. Room was a modernized dorm room, and was extremely small. No information about amenities or TV channel guide available. Front desk clerk was clueless about what TV channels were offered. Valet parking attendants left car keys sitting unattended on a bench. Employee vehicles blocked the entrance, so I had to park on the street and walk to the hotel to have my car valet parked. When I called later to complain, I couldn't even get an answer from the front desk or manager. I'll never stay again.2015-02-19"
"Close to The Straz Center. The hotel wasn't luxurious. The room was a bit dated, but it was clean and comfortable. The toilet overflowed at 5 AM; we cleaned it up ourselves and later told the front desk clerk, who just said, "I'm sorry." 2019-03-05"
"The room was either too hot or too cold. I felt like I was staying in a dorm. The hotel was fine for an overnight stay, but I wouldn't recommend it for a quiet family vacation.2019-02-19"
"The hotel was busy and noisy. I had to call 3 times and wait an hour for the shuttle to pick me up from the cruise port.2017-02-26"
"The trolley stop to Ybor City was just outside the hotel, so it was just 10 minutes from entertainment. Nice waterfront sidewalk nearby, and just across the street from Amalie Arena. Our newly-remodeled room was beautiful, and the hardwood flooring was a nice change from hotel carpeting. All the employees we encountered were helpful, cheerful, and went out of their way to help us. The pool area was quite hip and cosmopolitan, though it was closed when there was lightning in the area. The breakfast buffet was delicious and plentiful, and both indoor and outdoor seating was available. There was also an on-site Starbucks.2018-10-06"
"Nice hotel and room. Great common area and pool. We were especially impressed with the dining room food and service.2017-03-03"
"OK hotel, but nothing over the top. I was charged for an early check-in, then was charged 3 times for parking when we didn't have a car.2016-11-08"
"The hotel had a great view. The valet parking was expensive.2023-01-30"
"The hotel room needed some repairs, and a lightbulb was burned out. Some of the towels smelled bad, the toilet seat was loose, and the toilet paper dispenser was falling off the wall. The entry door was hard to open and close. Food and drinks were overpriced. Excellent personnel, but I don't recommend staying here.2016-11-25"
"Convenient to the cruise port. The hotel was nice, and the staff was friendly. Go for it.2016-11-10"
"The motel lobby smelled bad, and the front desk clerk was holding a crying child at 11:30 PM. The room smelled bad, and the light fixture was missing a lightbulb. The bedside lamp didn't have an on-off switch. No working phone. The floor and bedspread were stained, and the mattress was uncomfortable. We didn't stay.2022-03-29"
"No breakfast provided.2020-03-05"
"There were several dead roaches in our room. The walls looked like they had dirty footprints on them. The bed boxsprings were dirty. When we arrived, the TV was on and the sliding door was open in our ground floor room. The exterior doors near our room stayed unlocked at all times. We were a little nervous about security. Don't stay at this motel.2015-11-18"
"Just a few hundred yards from Bern's Steakhouse. This hotel exceeded our expectations. The room was modern and extremely clean. The bedsheets were so soft. Only had valet parking, and it cost $15 per day.2015-08-26"
"The motel was OK. I was given a smoking room, and it was gross. But the employees were friendly, and I was able to walk to Buccaneer's stadium. You get what you pay for. 2017-01-12"
"Not the best location, so don't leave valuables in the car. Walk to Best Buy, Walmart, and restaurants. The room was poorly maintained, and the motel only had on-street parking.2016-03-10"
"Great location near a lot of stores and restaurants and the Tampa Bay Buccaneer Stadium. Economical. Clean room, but the furniture was old. The electrical outlet between the beds was loose and had exposed wires, though it worked. The toilet leaked at the base, and the bathtub didn't drain well. Nice motel staff. OK for a short stay, but I wouldn't bring my family here.2015-12-29"
"Close to the port. The hotel clerk was nice, and breakfast was great.2019-05-06"
"Close to downtown and the airport. There were restaurants and stores nearby. My experience could've been better. The hotel room had a bad odor; we had to ask for air freshener to get rid of the smell. 2019-05-02"
"Good value. The hotel was clean, and the employees were friendly and helpful.2019-04-23"
I’ve been using HotelGuides for over 8 years. The agents are very helpful, and they try to accommodate every request. I like that when they email a booking confirmation to you, they include the hotel's address as well as its interstate exit number.

Hotel Booking Tips
Beware of non-refundable reservations that could cost you a lot of money if you change or cancel them. +Non-refundable reservations are a gamble that will usually save you less than $10. If you make a $90 non-refundable reservation instead of a $100 refundable booking, you are betting $90 to win $10. Would you do that in Las Vegas? -
Don't assume you can cancel a non-refundable reservation without penalty if you notify the hotel weeks or even months in advance. +Often you cannot because some hotels' profit strategy is to get paid more than once for the same room for the same night. -
Always read cancellation policies carefully before you make a reservation. + When is the latest date and time you can cancel without penalty? - More >
When you make a reservation, you will receive a confirmation email. Take a copy with you to the hotel.
The earlier in the afternoon you check into a hotel, the more likely you will get a room or suite that matches your preferences.
