We chose hotel because of location near Busch Gardens. Shuttle to Busch Gardens was free & very convenient. We called driver and he showed up very promptly. Olive Garden was located next to hotel but were not able to find any non-chain restaurants near by - lotos of fast food chains are near. We found traffic heavy and would have... More

The hotel is neat, clean and quiet. It is located close to Busch Gardens and the University of South Florida. Many other recreational possibilities are close, (including Lettuce Leaf Park on USF campus..a must see!!). The staff is friendly and tries to be helpful. They appear overwhelmed by events and confused. We had a new, high tech TV but they... More

This was the second time that we stayed at this hotel and we are so glad that we did. The rooms are very comfortable and the staff was very friendly and helpful. It was nice to be able to walk to restaurants by the hotel to dine.

We reserved 2 rooms and neither one were ready when we got there at 3:30pm... and we found this out after standing in line waiting for 15 minutes while 2 people checked in several people. There was never an apology for the wait or the fact that the rooms weren't ready. Just the excuse that we are at 100%. I... More

Great new room for 5. Two queen size beds and one sofa bed. Got this hotel as a package deal through the Busch Gardens site. It did not specify which holiday inn express we were booked at so we ended up going to the one next to the Busch Gardens entrance and got redirected to this one, which is about... More

We stayed at this wonderful hotel for 3 nights so we could visit Busch Gardens. From check-in with Mary to check-out time, we had nothing but positive experiences at this newer hotel. Our room was immaculate, the bed and bedding comfortable, and it was very quiet despite overlooking some big, noisy roller coasters at Busch Gardens (couldn't hear them at... More

All is what you would expect from Holiday Inn Express + free shuttle to/from The park. Ample Bfast. No one in the "heated" pool - maybe replace the heating element ? Overall a good value and a nice stay. Plenty of restaurants close by and some within a quick walk. I would stay again and recommend for value / location... More

Special thanks to front desk personnel, housekeeping and to Cathy, Mary and Raquel who went out of their way to assist us and made this stay a memorable one. The hotel's location was close to our relatives and shopping, making it very convenient for us. Amenities were excellent, abundance of breakfast items, decent pool to relax in, and comfy beds.

There was a bit of a hiccup with our booking. Although we had booked six months ago, the hotel was over booked and they wanted to move us elsewhere. However, after some friendly conversation we managed to stay. We selected this hotel for its proximity to Busch Gardens. Although a free shuttle bus service is available to the park which... More

This was a great place to stay while visiting Busch Gardens. All Staff were helpful and welcoming. Sam the shuttle driver was great, and the ladies keeping breakfast stocked were awesome. Very clean rooms and decent breakfast. Bedding nice- only reason that I gave it 4 instead of 5 is that the beds were too soft. Nice stay for a... More
