Good hotel for those who want to save on Tampa near Busch Gardens .. but do not stay more than a day! The problem was the strong smell of cigarettes in non-smoking rooms and the strange neighborhoods. Hotel bom para quem quer economizar em Tampa.. perto do Busch Gardens, porém não fique mais do que um dia! O problema era... More

Dear Darwin D, Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. I apologize that you stay was not as you would prefer. One of our biggest challenges is preventing guests from smoking in our rooms, as we are a 100% smoke free facility in our guestrooms. We certainly do our best to try and remove the smoke odor...

Arrived at this hotel after a long day at Busch gardens, we booked via booking.com for one night,instead of making the hour journey back to international drive. On arrival at hotel few dodgy characters were lerking, a couple of what we believed to have been prostitutes, but as we were so tired we decided to check the rooms out. Reception... More

Dear Ladyburn, I apologize that our property is not what you expected when you booked. The property, although not in the best part of Tampa, takes our guests safety very seriously and for that reason we provide security 7 days a week. I truly am sorry that our location was not up to your standards. Sincerely, Bob Mucklin, General Mgr. More

Our experience with this hotel was a headache from start to finish! The 100% smoke free room smelled like smoke and for being remodeled the carpet was shredded right at the door. The front desk staff were enjoying their conversation with fellow employees more than worrying about customers at the desk! And the pool was dirty and the tv was... More

Hello, I'm so very sorry that your stay fell short of your expectation. We have been installing a new television system at the property which did leave us with some outages for brief periods of time. Once again please accept my sincerest apologies . I hope that you will give us the opportunity to serve you again in the future.... More

I stayed at this motel on Monday night this week. This motel turned out to be in the "less desirable" part of Tampa I learned once being checked in. I assumed (wrongly) that since it was by Busch Gardens entrance it would be a decent area but its pretty rough on this part of Busch Blvd. Lots of police presence... More

Definitely not as advertised! Room cleanliness was almost nonexistent, broken tiles in bathroom, dirty tiles, broken and dirty appliances. Public areas definitely needed improvement. Suspicious activity in the area, didn't really feel safe. I can tell they hired a security guard to help improve that, but clearly not helping. Front desk staff was sympathetic and understanding. Good try Red Light... More

Stayed one night at this location due to a coupon. Advertisement stated "all new rooms" with refrigerator and microwave. The room was not remodeled, run-down, not very clean and no refrigerator or microwave. Fairly cheap rate but not as advertised. Will not stay at this location again.

Not having paid a lot for the room, we only expected an average room and that is exactly what we got. Therefore, I will not criticize too much the state of the room although it was not, for us, as bad as some people mention, but certainly not as good as others mention as well. All in all, the room...

We wanted to be near Busch gardens and had just come from an awesome Red Roof Inn in Jacksonville so why not try it again?? No way. It was dirty.

We found pills on the floor from previous guest, bugs in the room, and a less than friendly staff when checking who also seems to an unstable computer system. They did not check in guest based on the order of arrival, but instead based on who had a reservation. When making a request to stay near our in-laws that were... More
