Stayed here two nights to attend the Tampa RV Show, so we were only here to sleep and shower in the morning. (For us, we don't need to spend lots of money on a room we're barely in.) Obviously, one should not expect high end furniture or amenities at a Motel 6. This location was making an effort to keep the hallways and rooms clean as we could smell (not really overpowering as it can sometimes be) the aroma of cleaning products as we stepped into the hall/room. Our room was clean and the mattress allowed us a decent night's sleep. Although the room was large, there was open space where more furniture could have comfortably fit, but all that was provided was the bed, two shelves on the wall, and a small table with a chair on one side and a "booth" type of cushion on the other. The bathroom was clean and the water pressure in the shower was SUPER (although the drain on the tub was less than perfect). The room also had a refrigerator. Overall, the room was a good accommodation for the price.
The drawback, as with so many of these less expensive motels, is that some of the rooms seem to have full-time or at least long-term tenants. That "residential" living environment/attitude is entirely different from that of your tourist's/travelor's. We heard loud music thumping just outside our room until about 10:30PM. The trash can outside was overflowing and groups of people seemed to loiter here and there; the place was nearly empty by 6AM (with folks going to work) and then filled again by mid-afternoon after their workday was done...or so it seemed to us. I'd give this a higher rating (for a budget motel) if the noise levels had been less of an issue.

Hallways smelled like pot & cat pee, & cosmetic repairs are needed throughout. But our room was clean & the shower has great water pressure. We also liked that many bars & restaurants were in easy walking distance, so we could have a meal & drinks without worrying about transportation. Neighborhood feels safe, but the property was a nudge on the sketchy side. Never felt afraid, but am glad I was here with a friend & not alone.

Easy check-in.

Staff was kind, courteous and friendly.

The new layout for this chain takes getting used to (no desks, chairs, or carpet.)

Room was clean and it was quiet.

We would stay on this property in the future.

8 people were standing in line outside they had no clean rooms they said they found some clean rooms. I was skeptical but the pictures on booking looked so nice and clean. We got to the room and it smelled like disinfectant spray! Then we felt the bed and they sprayed the bed. We looked and the sheets were dirty brown spots found hair on the sheets . The mattress was completely stained mildew pee stains. They never cleaned the room just sprayed and was going to not tell anyone they were sleeping in beds already slept in. The trash can in the bathroom was full of the previous persons trash. Then I look to the floor and I see German roaches🤢I demanded a refund and left. It’s disgusting people were selling drugs outside of the place. It smelled nasty everywhere you went. I didn’t even want to give it a 1

What a disgusting motel in Tampa. My room is full of croaches and nobody can do nothing, that's what the guy on the front desk said. Only by morning!
I asked my money back after 1 hour but they could'n too because i only get refound in 30minutes.
So, basicly: "sleep with croaches and deal with that because we wont and we're keeping your money".
.
Nojento! Meu quarto tinba baratas e ngm podia fazer nada as 11 da noite, foi o que o cara da recepção me disse.
Então pedi meu dinheiro de volta pois tinha feito o check in as 10 da noite, mas não podia também pois o reembolso é somente meia hora após o check in (nem sabia disso).
Então basicamenfe: "durma com aa baratas e lide com isso pois nós não vamos e ficaremos com seu dinheiro".

Pros: No road noise, cheap, convenient location, frig & microwave worked. Spent half a week here.

Cons: Property needs security guards BADLY to keep clients from misbehaving before it becomes Lord Of The Flies situation. Nonstop noise from people in rooms, in hallway, outside, most hours. Not even enough employees to leave the office so back building is going FERAL. Such a shame because location has a lot going for it otherwise. People screaming on the phone in the hallways becomes the new normal. Drug dealing and escorting clearly going on. Employees other than maids seem fearful of setting foot back there. A security guard would probably tame things WAY down and elevate my rating to a 3-4.

The lobby and 1st floor smelled very strongly of marijuana.
There was dog pee on the wall, door, and floor in by the mini-fridge. There was a very large dog footprint on the sheets of one of the beds. The room was just dirty.
The furniture had fallen apart and been screwed back together. Other pieces had trim coming off.
The faucet in the tub was dripping and the drain was rusty.
The ice maker in our building was disassembled, so I walked all the way to the back building and the one in the other building was not working. Both were filthy.
There was rust and peeling paint in the common areas.

I know Motel 6 is a less expensive place to stay, but this place takes the cake! I think they must put everyone with pets in the rear building, as the hallway stank grossly like months of urine soaked into the carpet. It was flat out GROSS! The room was at least better than the hallway. Things that were NOT included in the room was: A clock, a coffee maker, daily maid service, enough soap, a bible, a dresser, or a safe that worked. You did not feel safe in that building. I was really worried that the car would be broken into. Also, lots of yelling going on at all hours. Lots of people just hanging around outside. Several other guests have reported seeing drug deals, and I could totally see that happening there, based on our stay.

We will NOT be staying at this location ever again.

My wife and I stayed two nights at this hotel in March 2005.

The location of the hotel is right off a main highway, State Road 60, which is convenient. It provides quick access to many surrounding places of interest, such as the nearby mall, AMC movie theater and numerous restaurants, many of which are within reasonable walking distance. Some readers may wish to be aware that nearby is an adult store, just in case they have any qualms about it.

The lobby to the hotel was very basic, not overly warm or welcoming, but clean. The hallways and our room smelled of carpet deoderizers and cleaning fluids, which although not overpowering, was still pungent, and some people can't handle those types of odors. Our room was also nondescript, but had a comfortable king sized bed. The room was equipped with a safe that you lock with a passcode of your choosing, which is convenient for keeping small valuables in, and they charge you a dollar a day safe charge, regardless if you use it or not.

The bathroom was small and cramped, with the toilet taking up pretty much the whole center of the room,but the water pressure was good and plenty hot. The free continental breakfast, which is served in a small room off the lobby, consisted of fresh juice, coffee or tea and a buffet style array of donuts, muffins etc. The nearest snack and soda machines are in the main building, which if you're in the building in the rear, isn't too convenient, and the view from our room was just the parking lot, with the highway and resturants beyond it, nothing special to look at.

In comparison to other hotels we've stayed at around Tampa, it's cheaper than a lot of them, but as far as ambience goes...I guess you get what you pay for.

Pay 20$ more per night and get 10 times the value down the street at clarion! I am recently in between moving into my new house and stayed one full week here . The atmosphere stinks but if you don't mind cops there all hours of the night breaking up some disturbance and old people walking around in their underwear all times day and night out side smoking then by all means stay here! Rooms were ok wasn't totally horrible but room 121 sucks because they apparently are too cheap to fix the side corridor entrance door and it slams all night + foot traffic going up the stairs both rattle your brain while you sleep! Staff was friendly and for the most part accommodating . I did not request a room change and just dealt with it " my bad" . Coffee sucks and no breakfast stuff like when it was a days inn. Room had a slight stench but for the most part clean. I needed another week but chose to upgrade 20$ more a night down the street and what a superior value for the $. If motel 6 rooms were 35-45 $ a night it would be a good value ! Take this how ever you want but spend the extra down the street it is way better value for your dollar! - Jason Chase
