Pros: We liked its location, the staff and the room.
Cons: We did not find anything to complain about.
Location: Hard Rock Casino is near by along with Busch Gardens. Many retail and restaurants. Major highway routes nearby convenient to Tampa.
We stayed for ten days and it was a very pleasant experience. The staff were always helpful and the room, which was a studio efficiency was perfect for our stay. It had a stove top and frig along with a microwave. The Extended Stay provided the utensils, dishes, pots and pans. Rates were very reasonable and the location was centrally located to major roadways. The hotel is in the midst of a major retail area so restaurants and shopping was conveniently near by along with grocery stores if you wanted to cook in. .

Perfect Place to Stay

Posted May 5, 2015
Pros: I love that it is in a nice quiet area that is close to everything and that it is like having your own studio apartment.
Cons: Large containers take up a lot of the parking.
Location: Everything is near, mall, food, movies, major highways. Minutes to casino, amphitheater, downtown Tampa.
I used to live in the area, so now when I go back to visit, this is where I stay. It's nice, clean and comfortable. It's near everything from the main highways to the mall to the movie theater, to tons of restaurants. It's tucked in a nice quiet area and I think the rooms are great. Spacious, big beds, full kitchen with fridge, microwave, sink, stove. The wifi worked great. I will only stay here when I visit Brandon, Tampa or nearby areas.

Weekend getaway

Posted Mar 23, 2015
Pros: Conveniently located for our requirements.
Cons: Clean the bathroom and kitchen areas better.
Check in was OK. The room was moderately clean, but the bathroom shower/tub walls were speckled with hair that was not rinsed off. The bathroom floor and kitchen floor was "sticky" with some form of residue......

Nice hotel near many restaurants

Rip Off

Posted Mar 12, 2015
Pros: They had a room when every else was sold out...no choice.
Cons: Everything.
Location: Plenty of restaurants and shopping.
The room was much too expensive for the quality...shower was dirty with dried soap in the dish caked on...I had to go out and buy bleach wipes to clean the bathroom and the chairs before I could sit in them as they had food on them and old dried up food in the creases of the chair. Room was "non smoking" but it smelled like someone was smoking in it the same day we checked in and when I woke up the next day I was completely congested from it...had to buy deodorizing spray for the room when I bought the bleach wipes as well as a fan to keep the air circulating so it didn't feel like I was in a bar back in the 80's...I hope no one ever stays here if they have any allergies to cigarette smoke. I will never stay here again and had no choice because of the strawberry festival but we were I the area for a meeting.
