I booked a room in this hotel because the reviews I read about it were very good. I payed for my room in advanced through the website Hotels.com. To my mistake, I didn't saw that I had to be 21 to be able to check in. When I got to Tampa, after being in a bus for five hours because... More

I had to change rooms at 1:30am due to this issue, the second room air conditioner was also broken and I... More

Went last week for a business trip to Tampa and selected this hotel for third time. I am happy I did even with other options in the area. The room was very comfortable and with good air conditioning ( outside was very hot). The treadmill in the gym was not working and after I reported to front desk next day... More

Great welcome. Rooms clean. Breakfast had long queue, which was very well managed by the polite manageress and we found ourselves seated and eating relatively quickly. The food was good but the fact that they serve breakfast on small polystyrene plates with flimsy plastic cutlery beggars belief. REALLY! The bathroom had a card gave telling us how to help the...

Ok....I'm not even sure I can get it all on here. I know this is going to sound unreal, but I promise it is real...unfortunately.

We stayed for four days while visiting family. Nice clean rooms. Beds and pillows were very comfortable. Boys loved the pool. The breakfast was great with real food. There were eggs, bacon, biscuits and sausage gravy, donuts, bagels, and more. I have just two complaints about this hotel. We stayed on the fourth floor and every day the hallways were... More

We booked a double queen room for one night so we could arrive at Busch Gardens early in the morning. We arrived late and check in took only a minute. When we got too our room it was clean and spacious enough for 2 adults and 2 children. We had a room with a connecting door and when we arrived... More

The rooms were clean. The stuff was super friendly. The beds were amazingly comfortable. Everything was local and close enough to enjoy. I would recommend this hotel to others. If you book at least a week in advance, they will give you a nice discount.

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights a few days ago since my family and I had planned to visit Busch Gardens. I have been at this hotel before a few years ago, and had no complaints then. This time though, a few things were good (the welcoming staff, free breakfast, free shuttle to BG). However, we had several... More
