Negative Reviews


Beware of creepy crawlies.

Unfortunately one of the main complaints from visitors to this hotel is cockroaches. They seem to appear both dead and alive in the bedrooms, bathrooms, and even microwaves - despite reassurances that the hotel has been sprayed. Some guests have also been affected by bed bugs.


Clean me please

The Howard Johnson Inn Tampa Ybor City could use a decent clean. Many guests feel that the bathrooms are often left filthy, rooms are run-down and in disrepair, and many smell like cigarette smoke. Visitors suggest that a proper spring clean could go a long way towards improving their stay.


Location concerns.

While this hotel is convenient to local attractions, many visitors feel that the surrounding neighborhood is not ideal. People are often found loitering around, smoking drugs or offering suggestive services, making some guests feel unsafe.
