Tampa was just a stop on our big trip (5000 km). The super friendly staf made it a treat. Receptionist and staf of the resaurant are most friendly. They seam happy to work there and they showe that. It makes you feel really welcome.

The front desk staff are so consistently nice and helpful. Not only did they work at combining my daughters personal and business rewards points together, they gave her 1,000 points for her inconvenience at it being slightly mixed up! The breakfasts were always hot and plentiful, The cleaning service also quick and efficient. Also the best beds ever! Pillows, not... More

Nice to give someone business who actually reciprocates with the type of hospitality and genuine care for customers that is lacking nowadays. Spent two nights with our young boys for a stay and play package from Busch gardens. The hotel is modern and clean, but what distinguishes this property is that the management clearly understands that customer service and the... More

Our family stayed here at the beginning of our week-long vacation. We stayed 2 nights and went to Busch Gardens before heading out to Clearwater Beach for the remainder of the week. We purchased the Busch Gardens package which included discounted hotel, park tickets, and various discounts throughout the park which I believe was a good deal. When we checked... More

Me, my wife, & son (teenager) stayed August 6-8, 2015. I have no complaints whatsoever. The hotel was approximately 15 minutes from Busch Gardens/Adventure Island. The breakfast was assorted & plentiful. My son loved the free ice cream & pancakes (yes pancakes) in the dining area from 8-12 each night we were there. We will definitely stay there again.

This hotel is located around 5 miles from Busch Gardens and is a good and relaxing stop after a day at the park. The room is very spacious and accommodated very well our family of 4 (two adults and two kids). We booked a room with two queen beds. The hotel offers an excellent complimentary breakfast with fruits, pancakes, muffins,... More

I would possibly rate this 4-5 if I could have slept the full night. Door slams in a hotel are to be expected (not sure why people can't be respectful) but it is unacceptable to me when it's the hotel staff. There was a super loud slamming door after midnight (probably a guest) and then a series of them this... More

Me and my family stayed here for a couple days to finish up our vacation. One morning during breakfast the manager sat down with us to chat for bit. As the weather didn't cooperate with our visit to Busch Gardens, we asked him if he had any suggestions in regards to a beach area we could visit. He pointed us... More

Great everything EXCEPT the mattress. Super firm and made it a rough night's sleep. Other than that, the staff were amazing! The breakfast was terrific. The weather was bad so we didn't get to use the pool. Also, there were a lot of good restaurants nearby.
