We only stayed one night but this was a perfect stopping point. If you enjoy running/ walking - a nice path is close. Beds were very comfy. Hotel was clean and breakfast was perfect. We would stay here again if were were in the area.

De Soto, Missouri
Reviewed 2 April 2014

This place is very good at everything. Property is positioned away from the highway and local traffic noise, yet within 5 minutes from lots of restaurants and shopping. The pool seems to be in an upscale backyard rather than the normal hotel feel. Distinctively better than usual H.I. Express hotels inside and out. Disclaimer: Friendly staff gave us 2 bottles...

A nice hotel in the suburban neighborhood of "New Tampa," with many restaurants just a short drive from the hotel. The USF campus is also an easy drive down Bruce B. Downs BL. The hotel was well maintained and very clean. The rooms include WiFi, mini-fridge and a microwave. A small landscaped pool is in the rear of the hotel...

Very pleased with this hotel all around. The location felt very safe. The grounds were comfortable. They had a special perk of ice cream night when we were there.

I was pleasantly surprised by this hotel. The hotel staff were very nice and they were helpful. The room was very quiet and clean. It was nice to have complimentary ice cream in the evening, that was a nice touch. The hotel is a little outside the downtown area, but the whole area of Tampa requires a car to get...
