The staff was very friendly and informative, the property clean and tidy, and our king suite was well appointed. For the free breakfast, we ordered pancakes that were under cooked and served on styrofoam plates with plastic forks. The restaurant had an unpleasant odor. We will stay there again because it is inexpensive and conveniently located near USF where our... More

known for picking the "winners" when we travel,when we pulled up to this hotel under renovation I knew I had done it again. My bosses laughed. We booked 4 rooms and every single room was PERFECT. A+++

Good enough for a night to visit Busch Gardens, did not do anything else than sleep in the room and leave for our next destination. From what i could see its an average to good hotel to stay for a couple of nights, not very special

Rooms are clean. Excellent staff. They are 100% smoke free so if you care about cigarette smell this is what you are looking for. The breakfast in the morning is delicious but a little bit high in price. The air conditioner is silent. Wi-fi is fast

The hotel was okay. I liked it and I would stay there again-BUT only under different management. The parking was good (though it was a really hard turn off from the road). The front desk staff was mostly friendly (one of the ladies was particularly amazing). The lobby was nice. The pool was pretty pathetic and we a had difficult... More

We were down at the pool while the were pressure washing after 8 p.m. We will stay here again in September when we... More

My family and I stayed at this hotel over the weekend. It wasn't the best hotel I've stayed in nor was it the worst. Pros: very close to Busch Gardens and plenty of nearby restaurants. Cons: the soap they give felt like it was made out of butter because it dissolved after one person using it, one use. Had to... More
