The hotel was very clean. The staff was excellent especially Debbie who works the front desk. Even though we were here for just one night (after we had to cancel due to Hurricane Matthew last weekend) she worked with us so we wouldn't lose our reservation. That was highly appreciated. The rooms were clean and didn't smell like some of...

Wow, where to begin? I still have 1 night left here and am compelled to review. I'll keep it short and sweet: 1. Pillows= 2 each bed BUT it really is 1 regular pillow cut in half. Bring own pillows. 2. Blankets: Like paper 3. Customer Service: Unless being rude and incompetent is the new gold standard, I'd rate this...

I don't like to write negative reviews, but am quite frankly surprised at the other reviews on this site. It is almost as if they were staying at another hotel and wrote a review for the wrong place. You certainly don't expect the Ritz when staying at a Sleep Inn, but the room could be clean. I found hair in...

My daughter and I went to Tampa to check out USF. This hotel was 10 minutes from the USF campus. We arrived early, around 11:00 a.m. and check in wasn't until 3:00. I asked the gentleman at the front desk if they allowed early check ins, and he said that if I could come back in 1 hour that he...

If Sleep Inn's are typically a 3 star hotel, this felt like a 4 star hotel. Stayed here several nights, never had a problem. First impression, the check in staff was friendly the lobby was clean and inviting. The room was clean, updated and very comfortable to stay in. Great value!

We picked this place because of its proximaty to busch gardens. This hotel was in a nice area unlike the area imediatly near busch gardens. The room was great, and had a very roomy shower. The breakfast was slightly above average, but seating is tight and limited.
