Location was great, but hotel... eh.

Posted Oct 17, 2017
Location: Location seemed to be right smack in the middle of everything we wanted to do. Everything was less than 30 mins in every direction.
So, I can say that I would consider staying here again. Although I was not "impressed", I also was not horrified. The beds were a bit hard, but not bad. We were put in the very back of the property where it seems they put all the truckers. The toilet was loose, so everytime you sat it sounded like it was going to break. The room was generally clean except around the baseboards in the bathroom. BIG peeve was that I had to go back to the office to have my room key reset EVERY DAY, I was there 3 days. ( apparently, we were not the only ones) And on my reservation it states that check out is at 12:00, ( one of the reasons I chose this place) And at 11:00 am I had housekeeping coming in and front desk calling me. They said they had changed the check out time a month previously. NOT on my reservation, and was not told that upon check in. I will say one more thing. The lady that runs the breakfast in the morning was AMAZING! Sorry I didn't catch her name, but she was friendly, courtious, and very attentive to her workstation.

More like a motel than a hotel

Posted Aug 30, 2017
This Ramada had the feel of a side road motel. All rooms were accessed from outside and the breakfast area sit 9 people at best.

Dear Valued Guest: Thank you for choosing the Ramada Hotel Temple Terrace. I was hoping your stay would be better than Satisfactory. We are an older hotel with access of I-75 which makes it convenient for may travelers. Many of the older hotels does have access from the outside as ours. We have been looking to increase the size of our lobby/breakfast area to make it more comfortable for guests as well as add more variety to our breakfast. I do hope you give us another chance when returning to the Tampa area. Best Regards Allan Keller General Manager

Overall the stay was pretty good for the 2 nights we were there. The rooms are extremly small and breakfast is your average continental breakfast, but many restaurants in the area.

It was okay

Posted Jul 11, 2017
Pros: The location to USF and Busch Gardens was the attractions.
Cons: Update the rooms as this hotel is still back in the 80's.
Location: USF and Busch Gardens.
This is an older hotel and showing its age. Some renovations should be made as the rooms are outdated and some of the odor of smoke as you walk past them. Our room was ok, the tub was old and needed to be replaced. The staff was friendly at check-in.
