2 star hotel right off the highway, close to Sun City Center the Hillsborough Community College. For the price I can even handle the limited continental breakfast. If money is not really tight then you may want to consider the hotel across the street but I had no complaints with the Ruskin Inn.

This is an no brand motel that makes an effort. Reasonably clean, friendly desk. Breakfast is a step below the normal oatmeal and muffin at a national 3 star. Don't expect much and you will be ok. Next door to convenience store and across the street from McDonalds and a pizza joint.

We stayed here Fri - Tues to help my in-laws move into Sun City Center. I had read the reviews of the three hotels in the area and decided to take a chance on the middle priced option. My husband frequently stays at Holiday Inn Express across the country for work, so he recognized the tell-tale signs that this was...

DO NOT STAY HERE- HORRIBLE customer service and management team, beyond horrible. I had a complete incident out of my control that left a small stain on a sheet and they charged me $100 and wouldn't give me information to talk to their boss about getting it refunded. Worst hotel experience I have ever had. Never have I been charged...

Every hotel in area was full or were $300+/night. SPRING BREAK! After searching for hours for a place to stay, came upon this hotel by accident. Appeared to be an ex-franchise converted to independent hotel, which can't be a good sign. Was pleasantly surprised by cleanliness, comfortable beds, pool, and very reasonable cost. Didn't partake of the free breakfast offered...

I can not recommend this place. The web site attracted me, but should have been alerted upon approaching the front desk. The location on the SR was not bad, but it was in a run down area. not a comfortable feel to the place. Strictly an economy quick stay place.

This hotel is a complete scam, they use hotels.com to lure people into their horrid smelling, ant-infested dump, and then if you don't like the condition of the hotel/room, they refuse to refund your money. The Manager is a joke, he told me to call Hotels.com and "take it up with them".
