My family and I were in Tampa for the weekend and we decided to stay one night in this hotel. The man that checked us in was very rude didn't even greet us. when we got in the room it looked very dated the bathroom was very dirty and it looked like it hasn't been cleaned in weeks. While taking a shower the water in the tub did not go down. Phone in the room was not working. One of the bed sheets had a lighter burn. You can hear the people staying in the room next to us. It was horrible then again what do you except for $60.00 a night... Never again !!

It was Okay

Posted Jun 8, 2015
Pros: See Above
Cons: See Above
Location: Good location for my trip!
The front staff was not overly friendly, the room was nice and neat. Bed was comfortable. The desk chair was in disrepair and there was a very limited amount of T.V. stations available the very outdated T.V. The coffee supplies and toiletries were not replenished the second day.The outside is in need of new paint and the water hazards on the walk ways need to be repaired. Not very welcoming appearance.

Disappointing stay

Posted Jun 2, 2015
Pros: Only good thing was that it was close to where we needed to be.
Cons: Everything!
We chose hojo because it always had a good reputation. The staff were fine but the hotel leaves a lot to be desired. It needs a complete renovation, was not the cleanest, and it was noisy at night. I cannot recommend this place to anybody! We will never stay there again!

Pros: Not much.
Cons: Cleanliness, maintenance, etc.
Location: Scary area.
This was a very rundown motel in a crummy area. But at least it was better than the other airport hojo's which was next to a topless dancers bar. The pool was too disgusting to swim in. Glad we were only stopping for one night.

Howard Johnson's sucks!

Posted Apr 3, 2015 on Hotels
It started lousey and didn't get much better. Manager had to unlock the door - mechanism all screwed up. There were fleas and other bugs in room. When we checked out, no consideration given for a room that was unfit for rental - even though housekeeping and a maintenance man told us that it should never have been rented. Desk clerk just said, "Sorry 'bout that!" Also said we didn't say anything when we checked-in!!
