I liked this place. We were a group of 8 and booked last minute. We had two rooms, both had decent sized beds and both were very clean. Showers were functional, as far as I know everything worked well. Staff were all friendly and helpful. Breakfast was pretty basic and lacked vegetarian options.

My teenage daughter and I arrived about 8pm on a Thursday night. When checking in, the front desk clerk recommended we park around back. It was dark. There was a group of teenagers playing loud music in their car at one end of the parking lot and a drunk couple fighting at the other end. I seriously considered taking the... More

It is obvious from the size of the room and the remaining bits of antiquity that this hotel is old however Clarion has done a good job updating it with modern furnishings, colors and electronics. The room was comfortable, clean and adequate for a place to stay before a Bucs game. The pool area and lobby are phenomenal and outshine... More

The good... the room was clean and comfortable, the staff were friendly & very helpful. The not-so-good, the ice machine that was located at our end of the property on the map was not there... the lady at the front desk apologized and told me it "had been taken out."
