  • Couple

    Nice room, clean and comfortable. We had the room in front of the pool, good.

    They don't have enough table for the breakfast. And breakfast is a little bit poor.

  • Family with children

    I like the free breakfast

    I was very disappointed when I arrived. The hotel is not upkept. The first room we checked into the tv didnt work so we had to change rooms. I have stayed at howard johnson before and this one was horrible. Also the rate online was the same as when you check in. This is actually a local weekly rate hotel for the locals not somewhere you want to stay when travelling or visiting tampa

  • Family with children

    The hotel was very old and out dated. The contential breakfast was a joke. Stale cereal and one waffle maker that wasn't clean. The room was horrible and no one was ever in there eating. I would not stay at this hotel again.

  • Older travelers

    It was cheap and they still included a breakfast.

    They had an internet kiosk that charged for the access. This should be free in every hotel.

  • Older travelers

    Homeless people on property. My wife felt threatened.People in pool making noise till 4am.

  • Older travelers

    Good value for the $$--room was clean and comfortable.

    Staff were not overly friendly. Taxi from airport to hotel was over $30.00-- a bit pricey. Location was okay if you had a car.

  • Couple

    The room was the best thing about my stay.

    I did not feel safe in this hotel. There were people eyeing us when we arrived in the parking lot. They were yelling and cussing at each other and were fighting. The lobby smelled like cigarettes when I checked in. In the middle of the night there was a hysterical woman running and screaming by my door. I called 911 since I was not sure what was wrong with her. The police ended up arresting her since she was on drugs and drunk. There is no security in this hotel which I think is sorely needed to control these type of situations. I was traveling with a high school group and none of them felt very safe here. The hotel itself was acceptable, but the parking lot and the surrounding area were horrible. This was the worst hotel stay of my life.

  • Single

    A good, decent budget hotel where a traveller can be assured of a good night's sleep in safety.

  • Group of friends

    Pretty affordable, right next to I-4 so driving anywhere in tampa isnt that much of an issue. The Chinese place in the front of it was pretty good too. Free WiFi is always a plus.

    Didn't have shampoo in the shower (but seemed available upon request). While the location wasn't bad for me would have probably preferred a place in Downtown Tampa so I could have walked to convention center instead of drove. Only one person tried the pool, he said it wasn't very clean. The bar was apparently terrible according to my friends that went.

  • Group of friends

    Couldn't get a taxi to save my life. Front desk staff seemed bother when I asked for assistance.

  • Older travelers

    We selected Howard Johnson Tampa because it is so convenient to get on and off the Interstate to go Ybor City and to the Tampa Bay Forum.

  • Couple

    Clean and cheap motel - fine if you're just looking for a place to stay for one night when you're on the raod, but not a place you want to be for several days. Okay breakfast and room size.

    Really shady neighborhood - people were knocking our door begging for money. Close to the highway and another main road.

  • Couple

    Good location close to 4 Interstate, 10 minutes to the Downtown.

  • Group of friends

    Staff people were extremely nice.

    Breakfast was very good but should include protein and less carbohydrates.

  • Single

    Excellent for the price, clean, smell good, simple breakfast but great for the price.

    Too much noise at night in weekend, the police was for two nights for couples solve disagreements, but nothing dangerous.
