The room was quite spacious and amazing: we had a kitchenette with a full size refrigerator, a small, glass-top stove, a dishwasher, and a microwave. The TV was set up to swivel around to the living room-type area or to be viewed from the king size bed (which was unfathomably comfortable). The water in the shower stayed a constant temperature the entire time, which is always nice. We're pretty sure we had a wheelchair-accessible room, so that may account for some of the roominess (as well as the hand rails in the bathroom). Breakfast the first day was ham and cheese omelets, sausage patties, and home fries one day, and scrambled eggs, bacon, and sausage the next, which is in addition to the usual assortment of breads, bagels, muffins, waffle makers, coffees, teas, yogurts, juices, milk, cereals, etc. Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, they do "socials" where they serve complimentary meals, wine, and beer. We only ate there one of the two nights, which was Italian or Polish sausages on buns and hamburgers and a modest salad bar. The pool looked amazing, but we stayed in February during one of the coldest weeks this winter so far, so we didn't use it. The location would have been great if we had been in town for a Tampa Bay Rays game; Tropicana Field is easily within walking distance. Our phone rang at 1:30 AM or so the first night, and no one at reception seemed to know why the next morning. Also, the hotel is U-shaped, and our room was on the far side of the U from reception (minor inconvenience, though). Other than those two minor things, there really isn't much to complain about. I may book a block of rooms here for guests for my wedding.
Comfy bed, spacious room, abundant breakfast with takeout bag, friendly helpful staff, nice extras--coffee, drinks, and snacks in the lobby throughout the day; printed out google maps. Being able to hear the people in the adjoining room through the connecting doors was the only complaint.
We loved the free taco bar.
This is hands down the best hotel, for the money. It is absolutely awesome for anything near this price. Trying to think of anything negative and there isn't any. Just go ahead and book it. This is a sure bet.
Great place to stay! Very conveniently located right off highway so it's easily accessible. Close to Central Avenue and the Waterfront Atta (used to be the pier). Clean and comfortable. Wish it was less expensive.
