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".

If you are going to Ruskin and need a room, this is not a bad choice. The room was clean, the bed was not bad and we didn't see any bugs! LOL! Check in was not difficult. We didn't stay for the continental breakfast, so I can't comment on that!

Well we were far too tired after travelling from Orlando airport so we called in here as we were desperate! But have to say we arrived very late and we were greeted by a very pleasant young lady we booked all 6 of us in We only stated about 6 hours but the beds were clean and the air conditioning...
