Verified Reviews of Travelodge Tampa / West of Busch Gardens

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Have Rooms Ready for Guests!"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
TV didn't work, there was no remote, and the alarm clock wasn't working either. The front desk responded ASAP and the maintenance man bought another TV, remote and alarm clock. It was all done in an 1 1/2! These things all should of been in working order before a guest arrives. This hotel really needs an upgrade for its location and a bit more care.

"Stayed 10/3 to 10/4/14."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
It was not at all what I expected. The room had a very bad stuffy odor and there were roaches in the room. Towels looked very dirty and dingy, just not a very good experience. The only plus was that is was centrally located.

"You found me a great hotel (which I would never have thought of), they told me who to contact, they even offered to help us get an upgrade...and after our stay, they got in touch to ask me how everything went. A really easy and professional service and it made our rugby trip successful - thank you!" D.P. - London, United Kingdom
