I have stayed at this hotel a few times with my family and we have enjoyed our stay everytime. We take advantage of the fitness room and the outdoor pool and spa. I'm a bit picky about hotels and this one has met my expectations with Great people, Clean rooms, and a Good breakfast.

Due to an unfortunate incident at another hotel we walked out of we were told this one was the only one with rooms left in the area. First of all the area is sketchy and I would not recommend for people with small kids or young spring breakers. My children were a little scared. Second it is a very high... More

Our experience here was not happy one. We used this hotel as it was the closest to my mother who is in a nearby nursing home in Carrollwood neighborhood of Tampa. Breakfast is fine and pool area is ok. If you have a pet this might work otherwise my advise is go somewhere else. On two different visits we requested... More

The rooms are very dark and dreary. No shuttle and only fast food within walking distance. Area felt unsafe. There are so many great hotels in Tampa. Do not stay here. The cab ride from the airport was $30.

We stayed here while attending New York Yankees Spring training game with our dog. Hotel was off the road so it was quiet and secure. The free breakfast in the morning had a good variety. We will definitely stay here again when in the area.

This was the first time I have stayed in this hotel chain. I was pleasantly surprised. We were upgraded to a junior suite which was quite large. The room was clean and the carpeting wasn't too bad despite allowing pets. The bed was comfortable with good pillows. The bathroom was clean and the towels were thick and in good shape.... More

Stayed here as a last minute walk in for an overnight stay to visit Busch Gardens just a 12 minute ride away. Front desk service was friendly and accommodating since we were with a group who had reservations already. The room had a comfortable King size bed with clean sheets and good shower pressure, fridge and a/c worked well. I... More

My husband and I stayed while visiting with my family in Tampa. We were not impressed with the hotel. For the cost, I would have expected a nicer room. The one we had was somewhat musty and old. The last night we were there we came back in around 10:00 and my husband noticed that the towels had been removed... More

I wish it was a little quieter, but at least we finally got some sleep. I wouldn't be rushing to stay here again, that's for sure. It sure would be nice if they cleaned the bathroom before letting people stay there as well.

I was the first person to book a room in this hotel when it was built. I have come back numerous times and the 5 star rating is well deserve. The staff, in particular, the management, go out of their way to serve their guests. Rooms are excellent, a extensive free breakfast is provided, including fresh hot waffles and beverages... More
