If you're a non-smoker for sure stay away from this hotel!!!! I stayed here back in the early 1990's but the past 20 years has certainly taken its toll on this hotel. Its old and they call themselves "remodeling" but the non-smoking rooms are so bad with nicotine that you can hardly stand it. Just getting into the door was... More

For our spring break vacation we unfortunately were unable to make prior reservations and had to improvise. Vista has good location and nice staff however the rooms were disgusting. They smelled like smoke, carpet had burns and stains, bathroom had trash, microwave door was broken and overall horrible. Why didn't I leave? My children were in bed sleeping by the... More

Stayed here for one night when I was driving thru tampa. And i will tell you that this was my worst hotel/motel/inn experience! Found french fries on the floor, "drug addicts" walking and hanging outside, candle wax up the walls and to top it all, bed was crawling with bed bugs! I will never come back, neither will my friends!

During a storm, our home lost power for an extended time and I needed internet. This hotel is close to our home, so I got a room there. Had I read the reviews first, I might not have stayed but, since I went in unbiased, I did not see 90% of what others are talking about. As I travel in... More

The room was supposed to be smokeless and it smelled horrible. There is also a homeless camp behind the hotel. The hotel is convenient off the interstate but if they want business, which it looked like they needed, they better improve the rooms or go way down on the price of their rooms. Awful place!

It was Springbreak and as anyone who wants to go to Busch Gardens but forgot to make reservations knows, you may have to head a bit more out to find a place. However, that gave no right to the hotel for being 40 years out of date and having terrible beds. At the office the receptionist asked if you wanted... More
