Good motel. Iffy neighborhood. Dead roach in bathroom. Strange people walking around. Average breakfast. Close to MacDill AFB.

In town one night to visit with family. Room was decent size, layout was fine.Beds were comfy. Staff was STELLAR. Super helpful and friendly. Pool looked great but we didn't use it this time. We lived in the area for years and know it to be safe. You're close to everything via public transportation, Uber, etc. Parking lot seemed to...

It took forever to check in, only 1 employee and a line of 5 people. He was very pleasant though. Cold water in the shower ran out after 1 shower, we had to wait awhile before 2 other people could shower.

The room smelled, the tub looked filthy, although on closer inspection it was probably just badly stained. Dirt in the corners of the bathroom. But the room itself was clean, and most importantly, the bed was clean. The only reason we stayed was that we were so tired and did not know our way around Tampa.

We needed a room and one night to attend a funeral in Tampa. Did appear to be clean, but old. Then we arrived home next afternoon with a really bad case of Bed Bug bites on both of us. Called the Motel, they said they would check on it the next afternoon! Nothing more! Our room was on the second...
