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!

It is a great location if you are going to busch gardens. The staff was great. I arrived several hours early and they still let me check into my room. The free breakfast was very nice as well. I would recommend if you are going to busch gardens.

Welcoming staff, room good, outside pool a good distraction for the children. Excellent location for Busch Gardens, with a continual shuttle bus available. Buffet breakfast was great, with a variety of items to chose from.

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.
