This place is very close to being a dump. The place is clean there's absolutely no customer service, for starters the shades in my room that keep the sunlight out don't close completely.. The bathroom the fixtures are old and the water leaks.. The furniture seems somewhat updated but has stains on the chairs.. when I first arrived I talked...

My wife and I were looking for a Ruskin hotel that was reasonable and centrally located. We were looking at Ruskin as a place for our retirement years. Didn't want all the hustle and traffic with major cities. We had passed the Ruskin Inn on several occasions. Normally we stay in Ellenton and travel back to Ruskin. This time we...

We had booked a room for the night and we were on our way there when my sister had an asthma attack and had to be rushed to the hospital. We called the hotel and told them what was going on and that we would not be able to make the room tonight. Now at this point they had not...

Our stay here was terrible. We requested a non-smoking, queen room. We received a smoking, full room. They would not let us switch rooms and said that the full bed was a queen according to their standards. Our bed was not fully made, and the top sheet had blood on it. The wifi would not connect. Also, the receptionist was...

I booked this hotel thinking that it was in north Tampa booking through Expedia. I found out that it was in south Tampa and tried to cancel immediately. I was told that I would have to go through Expedia but that cancellation was possible. I called Expedia who said the hotel had to agree, and Expedia talked to the manager....

We only stayed here for a few hours, literally. Checked in at 5pm and left at 10am. Not bad for what we paid. The girl at the counter was the best. The guy at night was rude. Not updated but if you only want to sleep this is the one to go...

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.
