    Pass / not even haunted

    Place is definitely out dated, was immediately hit with a $20 parking charge and the closest lot was full so I had to park in the secondary lot which was full of homeless people. Also not lit up or gated parking. AC in my room didn’t work had to get a different room, elevator feels like it will break any day. The restaurants and lounge are also closed even though the web site doesn’t state this, had originally stayed here so I didn’t have to deal with Tampa traffic and leaving. Overall would not stay again.

    Great place to stay downtown

    The room looked EXACTLY like it did on the website, which is very rare these days. Very roomy and CLEAN. The front desk person was VERY professional and very nice and accommodating.

    Average Room

    The room felt small, just basic bed and dresser. The bed was very hard and uncomfortable. I also had issues controlling the temperature in the room. It was hot most of the time.

    Beautiful lobby

    Beautiful lobby. It was a shame to see the hotel so empty because of the pandemic.

    I’m going to assume that with minimal staffing certainly thing slept through the quality of cleaning. With used unfolded heat blanket in the closet to used pizza box thrown it the dresser to use coke bottle under the broken center support to the king size bed. The building is starting to show its age with wood framing to the windows being damaged to termites. Hopefully the manager is aware of it and is goi g to resolve theses problems.

    I had no hot water in my room, was given temporary room to go and shower in. While visiting other room, someone entered my room and stole my purse. The hotel had no cameras on floors. My auto keys were stolen with purse, required me to spend $289 to rekey my auto to secure. The hotel only gave 1/2 off my room charge.

    We weren’t advised about any parking fees for our stay until we checked in. Our television only was able to receive a handful of channels. The beds were not very comfortable and the sheets had stains. Was very disappointing for us.
