    NOT the Ramada Inn at Port Richie, Fl. Had reservations there 2 years ago and it was lousy. Dirty rooms and lots of loud "thump music" going on in the general area of the motel. Stayed one night.


    Would recomend Holiday Inn Express or Marriott Courtyard in Oldsmar, Fl. Both fairly new and nice and clean. Good neighborhood.

    Good luck

    shootsome- It depends on what you want. Are you seeking only a bed close to the club at a low rate, or a nice pool, a bar and chocolate on your pillow every day?

    I have very specific criteria for my room. It must be on the ground floor with an outside door. This makes it easier to to load my car top carriers and U-Haul when I leave. It must be between the club and the restaurants in Tarpon Springs. It should be located where I have to drive on Rt. 19 as little as possible. Some group, possibly the AAA, came out with a list of the most dangerous roads in the US. Rt. 19 topped the list.

    I'm basically looking for a low cost, clean room with a shower. I don't spend much time at a hotel other than shower and sleep.

    I have seen a couple of very small and apparently inexpensive motels on Rt. 19 between the turn off for Tarpon Springs and the Gun Club exit. One is by the power pole that has a very big Osprey nest in the top. A local map or a local shooter could be more help. Do not try to Goggle "motel by Osprey nest", it won't work.
