We arrived Friday evening, for a weekend at Busch Gardens; and, were delighted to find the Holiday Inn Express close to Busch Gardens. Even better, free shuttle service made for an easy commute. When you add to that recognition as a IHG member, a special welcome packet, clean rooms, attentive staff, and free breakfast... Well, you are in for a... More

Ok I saw some negative stuff here, so I will be very forthright here. We stayed here purely for the free shuttle to Busch Gardens, free wifi, free breakfast and location to Busch Gardens. The Staff was excellent, we stayed here over spring break so the place was packed so keep that in mind. I wanted to print my tickets... More

If you are going to Busch Gardens this is the hotel for you. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were as expected with comfortable beds nicely on the soft side. Free morning breakfast, but the smallish eating area was quickly overwhelmed.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel during out trip to Busch Gardens for my birthday. The hotel staff was very nice and accommodating. The shuttle to and from the park was really convenient, especially when Robert was driving. He was very polite and always punctual. I would definitely recommend this hotel for a stay while visiting Busch Gardens

Hotel is as advertised. Clean good sized rooms and friendly staff. Decent complimentary breakfast. Hotel demographic is mostly families probably there to visit Busch Gardens which is almost across the street (though we and some others were there to see NY Yankees spring training which is about 10-15 minutes away). Business travelers beware as the wifi signal in our room... More

Very nice hotel that is actually within walking distance of Busch Gardens, but with heavy traffic the convenience of the HI shuttle was welcome. The shuttle driver is very accommodating and dropped us off right at the front gate. Everyone we encountered on the staff was welcoming and helpful and our room was clean and quiet. Olive Garden, Red Lobster... More

We booked this hotel the night before a visit to Busch Gardens. The staff at check in were polite and helpful. Late in the evening we purchased tickets to Busch Gardens on the hotel computer in the business center. There was no operable printer to print the tickets we just had purchased. The staff on at 9 pm was disinterested... More

I chose this hotel since it was close to the University of South Florida. Joshua at the front desk was great very friendly and helpful. My daughter and I wanted to have dinner on the water he recommended a fantastic restaurant which did not disappoint. I thought the staff was very helpful and the rooms were clean. Overall great experience!
