5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2011

We stayed here from Sept 29-Oct 1, for the second time and it was great! We chose this location because it's close to Busch Gardens (the fence to the park is across the street!) and because they allow dogs. My dogs love their free waffels in the morning! (When we travel with our dogs we only use La Quinta.) The... More

I will start with my biggest complaint about my stay here: the free internet/wifi was totally unusable. 1st night it connected just fine, but the connection was unbearably slow. This was to the point where it was unusable, beyond the standard "well it's a hotel offering free internet, its going to be slow" I expect. The 2nd and 3rd day,... More

We arrived late night around midnight! Receptionist told us they had one room left, but the previous person didn't want it once they viewed it. I can't remember why! However, I as we stepped into the room there was a rancid odor. So my husband and I look at each other and said that's why they didn't want the room.... More

The staff were friendly and all smiles. We had no problems with service. Unfortunately, the hotel is nowhere near as good as the staff. The facility was older and in need of serious renovation. Our room had patched walls with no attempt to paint over the area. If they were remodeling, they did not mention this to us. The carpeting... More

Clean rooms, friendly and helpful staff, right next to Busch Gardens, nice big pool, free wifi and under $50. Not sure how you could expect more for the money. The neighborhood is NOT the greatest, though - not the kind of place to go for a walk at night. Police station is right next door, though, so it would be... More

Lobby was ok, check in was fast. Hotel has a wonderfull location but the building needs some repairs. Walking to the room we saw a hole in the cealing, the walls was dirty.Even when the isles are open they should keep everything clean. Inside the room 3 power outlets didnt work so just one to used to charge my phone... More

I must admit that after reading all of the bad reviews, I was very nervous about staying at this hotel. I had already booked it before reading the reviews but decided to go ahead and stayed there anyway. It is a typical Florida hotel with Florida colors. Breakfast was good. Staff was friendly. The pool area was very nice. Very... More

We chose this hotel based on the price and the distance to Raymond James Stadium (we booked the hotel late, therefore most of the closer places were booked). We arrived as the front desk guy was being yelled at by a customer who wanted to kitchen in her room but was told that there weren't any. The front desk guy... More
