This is not the closest hotel to Busch Gardens, but being just a few miles away it was convenient and much cheaper than those hotels closer. It is also right off from I-75. The room was clean and spacious. The staff was friendly and for the most part helpful (our only critique was that the desk was out of printed... More

We only stayed one night but this was a perfect stopping point. If you enjoy running/ walking - a nice path is close. Beds were very comfy. Hotel was clean and breakfast was perfect. We would stay here again if were were in the area.

This place is very good at everything. Property is positioned away from the highway and local traffic noise, yet within 5 minutes from lots of restaurants and shopping. The pool seems to be in an upscale backyard rather than the normal hotel feel. Distinctively better than usual H.I. Express hotels inside and out. Disclaimer: Friendly staff gave us 2 bottles...

A nice hotel in the suburban neighborhood of "New Tampa," with many restaurants just a short drive from the hotel. The USF campus is also an easy drive down Bruce B. Downs BL. The hotel was well maintained and very clean. The rooms include WiFi, mini-fridge and a microwave. A small landscaped pool is in the rear of the hotel... More

By far one of the best hotels I have stayed at. George the General Manager will go out of his way to make you feel at home. The rooms where beyond clean, the service was beyond wonderful, I couldn't be happier. My next stay when I go to Busch Gardens will be at this Hotel.

Very pleased with this hotel all around. The location felt very safe. The grounds were comfortable. They had a special perk of ice cream night when we were there. The rooms were very clean, linens were double sheeted and the beds were comfortable. I liked having a refrigerator, and all the furniture was updated & of taller height. The breakfast... More

I was pleasantly surprised by this hotel. The hotel staff were very nice and they were helpful. The room was very quiet and clean. It was nice to have complimentary ice cream in the evening, that was a nice touch. The hotel is a little outside the downtown area, but the whole area of Tampa requires a car to get... More

Spoke with George Sandona, General Manager. Offered suggestion for website to add more specific info regarding dining. He was receptive and fun to talk to. Have to say what a wonderful stay we had.

Dear Kenji, I am glad we delivered a great stay while you were on your college search. We wish the scholar great success, wherever he chooses to study. I like your suggestion about an insiders guide to dining - I think I just may have to do a little more "research" on things like signature deserts, etc. There is no... More

This hotel gave us a terrific experience at a reasonable price. The complimentary hot breakfast was more than adequate for us each day, and we very much enjoyed the complimentary ice cream in the evenings. The manager was especially cordial, showing up at breakfast each morning and checking in with guests. There are several restaurants and a movie theater within... More
