The description of the hotel fit our primary concern which was their shuttle to and from the airport and an inhouse restaurant since we were there one night. Neither was true. Yes, there was shuttle service, but after 2 phone calls from us to them when we arrived at the airport and an almost 2 hour wait, we got a taxi. The receptionist made us feel at fault, had no apology, just said the driver didn't see us, said she had thrown away the note with our location on it. That's when my husband saw a small handwritten notice that the shuttle operated only 11am til 6pm. I asked about our early need and the receptionist said there was no shuttle service for us. The hotel description implies you are assured of a ride, but we had to taxi both ways. The restaurant was not open that evening. The hotel is not as cared for as the other reviews suggested. The pool, hallways, lobby, and other public areas were not very clean. In short, if we had booked for more than one night, we would've moved on.

Let's talk about what went wrong... we walked in the door to our room and the lights were burned out. walked into the bathroom, which was not the cleanest, and there was only 1 towel ( for 4 women). I went to call the from desk and the phone did not work. I walked down to the front desk to let them know about the light and it was questionable whether they had lightbulbs to replace but she would check on it. Got ready to go to dinner and the toilet was very sluggish to flush at first and after a few uses, would not flush at all. Went back down to the desk to notify staff and was told no one would be around until tomorrow to come look at the toilet and no other rooms were available to switch... "but I can give you $20 off for the inconvenience". I was also asked if we took the back plate off the toilet to try to flush that way... Because that is something you would expect to do while on vacation... Getting ready for bed, as I mentioned, it was cold, so we turned on the heat... The heater was so loud and clunky that we could barely hear each other speak. So after listening to it for about 30 minutes or so, we turned it off and bundled up for the night. In the morning my sister went down to the lobby to use the bathroom and mentioned it to the desk and they told her "oh, we have space heaters down here". Needless to say, we checked out early. And still had to pay for our 1 night. They should be paying guests to stay there...

We booked this hotel based on your reviews that stated there was transportation to the airport. In fact there was not. When I tried to cancel he stated I could not, he did not provide service that was on his website, and per the female employee I called and spoke to prior to booking. I paid for a service that was advertised and confirmed and it was not provided.

The hotel is in a nice location in south Tampa, and the design is good in that the rooms go back off of busy Dale Mabry so that the rooms are as quiet as you would hope for. The swimming pool is large and separates the two parking lots. There is plenty of plants and trees to enhance the atmosphere. And with just 2 stories it looks good architecturally. The restaurant is a good one and popular with locals too for breakfast and lunch. The staff is courteous and efficient.
