This place surprised me. First, the service was great. The hotel staff is very attentive. We needed a room that could accommodate three of us but didn't want the traditional room with two beds. This place had the two room suite that worked great for us. We didn't use the pool but it was very inviting. It needs some updates... More

The front desk clerk was extremely friendly but that was the only nice part about this hotel. For $80 a night, do yourself a favor and spend the extra money to stay somewhere a little nicer. Ascetically speaking, the hotel itself and the room needed some serious touch-ups. Our bed sheets were worn thin in places to the point where... More

At the last minute my wife and I called for a reservation on New Years Eve. I spoke with Linda who went out of her way to try and accommodate us. Her customer focus was exemplary and and left us with a very positive view of this establishment. The hotel is an excellent value for its location. While the room... More

We come into our room and are greated by a huge roach in the sink! The beds were uncomfortable, it feels like you are sinking into them. And I felt a bit clausterphobic bc the room was small and divided into 3 areas; living room, bedroom and bathroom. (the divisions made the room super small). During breakfeast my sister killed...

Absolutely wonderful hotel! I had attended Busch Gardens Howl-O-Scream event the previous weekend and stayed at a neighboring well-known (and expensive) hotel, so when I decided to go to Busch again, I didn't want to spend as much money. Not familiar with the area, I took a chance and selected Grand Suites as it was right next to my other... More

So I was not impressed with this hotel at all. Other than the staff, I will not be staying there again. Went with Family to Howl Screem, and once we returned from the park there was not one parking spot free. I went in side and spoke with the young lady at the front desk and she informed me that...

Stayed here while visiting the park. It is right around the corner. The rooms are good size and extremely quiet considering the location. The staff is excellent. I would use this hotel again when in Tampa.

I liked this hotel the minute we walked in. The desk person was super friendly, our room was adorable and the grounds are well maintained. It was a suite with an actual door to the bedroom, so I could stay up later than my traveling companion and watch TV-I liked that! I stayed there to visit at USF, but it... More
