What more needs to be said, it was so bad that it was closed down. The bed bugs and sewer back ups in rooms and parking lot. Pool never had water, wifi never worked, washer and dryer worked some times but you could not ever get towels or clean sheets when you needed them and several of these 4 star ratings were from the managers friends not real people. Thank You for closing the place down, the city did some thing right even if took them to long to do it.

The place two years ago was ran very poorly, the new people on board are really
doing a terrific job cleaning that place up, it was a dump!! Now it's actually a decent
motel especially for the price. For all travelers look into this motel you won't find a better staff or deal anywhere else here in Tampa take it from me I've been here fourteen years!!

What can I say about this place, it is a complete rat hole, parties in the parking lot, drinking and chaos on the balconies, just a complete drug haven. I suspect even the managers are partying most of the time. The beds are terribly broken down, there is no free breakfast, pool, or even stale coffee. Clean towels or linens are not an option. The televisions don't have remotes, and most of the buttons were so badly worn that you still cannot change the channels or volume. Seriously, the place is a complete and total dump that should be condemned. I had stayed there a few years ago under different management, and things were much better, its a shame the new managers do not care for the property as well as the previous ones. Do not stay here, it is a rip off!

we are here now, management is awful, have washing machine and dryer but will not exchange money for quarters if it is working that day, will walk down to the room to inform you that you must bring your towels to office and leave your room number on them instead of picking them up at the door, WIFI only works if you sit outside or go sit in front of the office because they do not have enough routers as we were told by management. No ice machine. Do not furnish remotes for tv instead tells you to go across the street to Family Dollar to purchase one. People outside all night talking when are people supposed to sleep. Children running loose throwing stuff off balcony onto cars , who wants dog crap on their cars or shoes. This is most surely a crack motel BEWARE . Pool is the nastiest thing I have ever seen they should not even advertise it.

Room Tip: There are none
