The room was spacious and clean and there was a fridge and microwave, perfect for us as one of my sons has a gluten intolerance (there is a Publix just up the road with a Dominoes round the corner who do gluten free...

Stayed here from June 15-18, 2014. Also, remember, the opinions expressed here are strictly my own. First of all, this hotel is very convenient to Busch Garden and has a shuttle which will take you there and pick you up. On arrival we were given a room in the front of the hotel where the blue light used to light... More

Located outside of downtown Tampa, next to Bush Gardens and on a busy street. But you don't hear any noise in your room. Unfortunately there wasn't a king room available (as we had requested) because there were washing the carpets, we got a queen room instead. The room is a bit dark. Breakfast was okay.
