"Property is clean, no-frills but staff is wonderful"
4 of 5 stars Reviewed Apr 18, 2014
TiffNLuke | Waterford, NY
We stayed the night before flying out REALLY early from TPA. Was a no-frills place, but was clean and comfortable. What made it feel like an even nicer experience however was the staff. Noelle, in particular (but in addition to both shuttle drivers we had) was simply wonderful. Someone had been on the computer for quite some time so she let me forward my boarding passes to her gmail account (she doesn't have a work account) so she could print for me. She also coordinated early delivery of our bags, our shuttle, and kept my son's medication in the fridge - all with an "of course I can!" attitude of key service. Someone else was there when I checked in, and she seemed just as attentive, so I suspect that is the norm for this location, and that really does make all the difference. Only gripe was that the wifi in our room was awful. This was convenient, and lots of stuff around if we'd had time.

"Stay to be near the airport"

Room was clean and beds firm with good linens. Towels should be upgraded. They're old and too small. Hotel is minutes from the airport with free shuttle service to the airport. Free breakfast was good, but coffee cups should be bigger and not styrofoam. They're too small and bad for the enviroment.

"Nice Place To stay"

Rooms are clean and the staff is friendly. Right near the airport and bay - easy access to places to eat and things to do. Enjoy staying at this hotel. Nice pool area too. You do hear planes taking off and landing so if you don't like planes it would probably be annoying. But I love being near the airport so I think it's perfect. I thought the nightly rate was rather expensive this time though. The breakfast isn't that great though.

"A Decent Value"
3 of 5 stars Reviewed Apr 8, 2014
RIKKASDAD | Plymouth, Minnesota
We stayed here twice--at each end of a trip because of its convenience to the airport. The first trip was OK until 4:48 am (Friday) when it sounded like the garbage trucks were backing through our rooms. You do NOT want to be in the extreme southwest corner of the buildings then. And the first flight out was at 5:38 that day. They must have slotted us into those rooms again, because when we returned 8 days later and refused to be anywhere near there, it took them until nearly 4:00 to meet their 3:00 check in time. Breakfast was OK, and the pool area very clean.
