Cons: update

very disappointed in the hotel, not at all what I'm use to. Could use a remodel or updating for sure. Dining room had great food, and the staff was friendly. But just an old old hotel.......

2 miles from Raymond James Stadium

Overall trip was great! stayed here 2 years in a row for Sunset music festival in tampa. no more than $10 lyft/uber to or from the hotel to the stadium. This year the only problem I ran into was being overcharged by $100 but it was a miscommunication & the manager refunded our money no problem. would definitely stay here again!

Convenient location, close to major cities.

Nice hotel, clean, and close to shopping, dining, and major expressways. We we're able to easily drive to Clearwater and St. Petes. The only thing I didn't like was the noise from the airplanes. Planes literally fly right past the hotel at all hours. I got used to it but earplugs may be helpful when trying to sleep.

More like a motel

This hotel was more like a motel. All the rooms open to the outside, rather than a hallway. Our room was in the front of the hotel which meant that our door opened to the parking lot and busy street, which were noisy and brightly lit. Also, the weather was pretty chilly for Florida so we weren't protected from the cool outside air when we opened the door. The room was clean, but whatever they use to clean the rooms smelled awful. We had to keep the door open for most of the time we were there due to the chemical smell. The hotel itself was clean but very outdated. The hotel is also surrounded by strip clubs. Not their fault, but not a great spot for a family vacation. Fortunately we only had to be there for one night.

Noisy hotel

Strange setup of the hotel. Some rooms had doors facing out toward the street; others faced in toward a courtyard of sorts. The courtyard served as nothing more than an echo chamber. We could hear the people in the room behind us talking and several people came in yelling/being loud. It was about 2am before it was quiet for a couple of hours.The only real plus to this hotel is that is minutes from the airport which made catching our early morning flight easier.

Comfortable.Staff not too people friendly.

Asked in advance if they offered breakfast. Answer was "yes" over the phone. Hotel doesn't offer any free breakfast. Overall experience was perfect for my 1 night stay. The price was right. Love Travelocity.

Debit card users/ Ramada, Tampa, Fl

Pros: Free coffee and water because I didn't have my extra $100.00 to spend.
Cons: Stop the policy of $50.00 hold on debit cards.
Location: Good area for walking and the Cypress Garden/ beach.
Hotel facilities, conditions, and staff ok. Major problem with use of a DEBIT CARD. Their policy of holding $50.00 on the card for 7-10 days is questionable. They claim it is needed if there is damage or incidentals not paid. If they have had problems in the past that is not my issue. They need to seek restitution from the person that did it. If a retail store experiences retail theft; they do not have every customer entering the store swipe their card at the door for a $5.00 hold on their card for 7-10 days. Also they only allow one day at the low rate advertised (bait & switch); when I booked three more days there they put another $50.00 hold on my debit card. Now I'm out $100.00 for 7-10 days. If I were extremely wealthy I wouldn't be staying there. Please WARN debit card users they will lose money for their vacation use.
