The rooms were nice -- spacious 2 room suites, with a small kitchenette area with microwave, sink & fridge.The bathroom is small. Wifi signals were problematic, necessitating a room switch. (Rooms nearer the front office seem to have stronger signal.) The lighting is dim, and there are no desks and there are too few electrical outlets. It appears that all... More

First of all, I hate to give this property a bad review based on the personality of the front desk staff. So friendly!!! I purchased this property on Priceline and paid (with taxes) $78. I was taking my son to USF for orientation. I called the property immediately to ask about rooms having inside corridors, because I would be staying... More

I put up a friend, who was having surgery through Moffitt there in May. I do that for friends often because of the lush gardens throughout the peaceful setting, friendly staff, cozy well equipped suites with door separating bedroom from living area.

This place is disgusting. Looks nice on the outside. Smells like old people a day the lady at the front desk had some bowel disorder and was making me sick. I guess it used to be a holiday inn. It was probably really nice in the late 80s and 90s. Woke up in the morning with either a huge bed... More
