We stayed here last weekend and the room was very comfortable, the hotel was incredibly clean, and the breakfast had many items to choose from (everything from eggs, bacon, and pancakes to yogurt, cereal, and cinnamon rolls. The hotel is located very close to the entrance to Busch Gardens and you can see some of the rides from your hotel... More

We were welcomed by a very friendly staff member at the reception. Check-in was quick an smooth. We received all the information we asked for (restaurants, directions, and so on). This was my third stay at this hotel - every stay was a success. This time we had a king suite with all the amenities we could wish for: comfortable... More

We really enjoyed our stay. The staff was friendly and the rooms were clean. It had a very nice breakfast bar. Although the parking lot was a bit congested, it was okay.We could not asked for more. It is very close to Busch Gardens and many restaurants.

A great location for a visit to Bys h Gardens and such lovely staff. A great welcome on arrival and a comfortable bed but a bit of a noisy air conditioning unit but after turning it down we slept well. They do a good buffet breakfast with reasonable choice lots more things to choose from more than in the UK... More

We usually stay at Hampton Inn Hotels, but there wasn't one near Busch gardens so we opted for the Holiday Inn express. We were not pleased with our room. I will list the Pros first because that list is shorter: 1. Convenient. We were visiting Tampa to see Zoominations at the Lowry Park Zoo. Very easy to get there from... More

Our review is as simple as this hotel: 1-Very clean--common areas very attractive, more so than the rooms; 2-Paid more than $200 for a 2-bedroom suite, even though Busch Gardens not busy; suite was cramped; 3-Furnishings in the suite inexpensive, but we did have a Jacuzzi tub and separate shower, and in the hallway had an area with a small...

We always stay at Holiday Inn Express hotels. Everything at this hotel was very good except the airconditioning. There was some kind of sensor on the tstat that raised the temperature when you were out of the room or sleeping at night. I guess it did not sense any motion as had to get up several times during the nights... More

This hotel was slightly cheaper than others of the same type in the Tampa area because it's not in the best part of town. I was staying for business but if you're traveling to Busch Gardens it's literally across the street. You can see the roller-coasters from the parking lot. Despite this the hotel is nice and quiet and seems... More

Just got back from staying a night in Tampa after trip to Busch Gardens. This Holiday Inn Express is very convenient to Busch Gardens. Always enjoy the continental breakfast. The room was good. We had extra space with a pullout sofa (wasn't expecting) and 2 queens. The sofa bed needs updating, but my youngest just slept on it as a... More
