Staff and restaurant
The smell of cigarette everywhere.
Clean and friendly staff
The room was old, with stained frayed bedspreads. There were old cigarette boxes in one of the drawers. By the time we realized how gross it was the kids were already asleep. After a long day we werent switching rooms as we were only there for one night. Will not stay there ever again.
Yo, so we went to Busch gardens and stayed here.. definitely close enough, but even better is that its in 4 min from the strip in Ybor. That alone puts it on top.. cheap nights and quality rooms. Bet.
We liked the price and the room was clean. The staff at the location were excellent and treated us well.
We had no idea the location was extended stay and many families lived there either temporarily or this is their regular home. We understand this is home for many but too many people were standing, sitting, and hanging out at the location.
Breakfast and registration staff members were friendly.My family and friends felt safe. They respond quickly to any incidents on the premises.I Enjoyed my stay here.
One staff member not being able to recognize the guest. His mannerism was questionable also.
In the early evening of my stay, my husband needed to go downstairs; he was accosted by panhandlers in the poorly lit stairwell! Near our car he discovered broken bottles. In addition, there was yelling/banging throughout the night!! My daughter woke up crying.
price breakfast was ok
extra fees location cleanness
They let my kids stay in the pool after hours and they where very clean
The neighbors were really friendly. Many people there were living in the motel. Although some were clearly on drugs (and openly selling drugs), or prostitutes... they were all friendly.
The room was disgusting. It had an intense mold smell. There were roaches everywhere. I have slept through the night every night of my life, but couldn’t sleep a wink at this place. I also slept with the lights on to keep the roach swarm at bay. I understand it’s a cheap motel, but this place should see the wrecking ball.
My room was dirty. Cigarettes on floor, looked like animal hair in bed. Housekeeping only came once over give days.
The room had a musty smell.
Rooms needed a bit of updating. Breakfast was a mess.
It's cheep for a reason.
Shower didnt work. Desk clerk came and fixed it? Not, so they moved us to another room. The second room was as dirty as the first. We all had black feet because the carpets are so dirty. Scary people knocked on our door looking for someone. Didn't feel very safe.
Poor service, hot and cold water switched, definitely not worth the money, breakfast was a disappointment too
It was cheep.
You get what you pay for! While checking in, desk clerk Ashwin, was rude and unwilling to accomodate our request for a 1st floor room they only have stairs and hauling our suitcases up the stairs was not fasable. The room we were given smelled and the air conditioner made so much noise we could not hear the tv. Maitanance person came and wacked the poop out of the air conditioner and it stopped making the noise for about a half an hour and then the noise returned. The breakfast would have been good if they would have kept it restocked. I had to ask for peanutbutter, orange juice, milk for cereal and napkins. After they got me what I requested they promptly put everything away so I had peanutbutter toast and a glass of milk they took the creal away before I could get a bowl. We cancelled our second night and booked another hotel. We will avoid this hotel in the future.
No roaches. Wi-fi and A/C worked. And again, NO ROACHES...
There was NO toilet paper in the room and none was offered. One of the two white washcloths was visibly dirty. The brown bed spreads were visibly dirty or stained (the top ones that never get changed). The tub floor a dirty gray and it drained slowly. The bottoms our brand new shower shoes were very dirty after only a few hours of overall contact time with the floor. It's a good thing I found a 24 hr Walmart for TP, shower shoes, and cleaning supplies. We brought our own sheets so we never pulled back the bedding under the dirty bedspreads.
The room was decetly clean.
The staff was rude and nasty. Our tub was stopped up and we requested that it be fixed. They came 2 hours later and fixed it. They snaked the tub and it lefted a big mess, so we asked for something (chemicals) to clean the tub and they told us to just clean it with water. Very disappointed with the quality of service.
Location was good.
The hotel was dirty and had roaches. The hotel also seemed to have families living there. It was loud and very noisy. The lobby reeked of smoke!
We stayed for 2 nights and had a good time. The kids love the pool
Not close to the beach
I like it because its quiet and comfortable and also very clean inside the room
Nice swimming pool and room
Water dripping from the ceiling in the dining room. Also floor very dirty and noticed mold in some areas
Still, despite the cons, worth the price of $50 for a nights overstay for 2 Nice staff.
The room was a bit worn down and there were cigarette burns on blanket and small bloodstain on my pillow case. No towels in the room Typical continental breakfast, mostly sugar, and only one waffle machine. Uneven AC.
Just amazing facilities for your money- if you want it all on a budget this is the one for you. We loved the waffle maker for breakfast. The staff were friendly in a lovely reserved honest way X
Nothing how could we!
The location was good for the purpose of the trip
the proximity to the free way was awful could not focus to sleep
