Very nice and clean with updated rooms. The staff was very friendly and they had a small side road to accommodate our truck and trailer. This hotel was great all the way around and if we are ever in tampa again this will definitely be our first choice.

This is a great hotel, perfect for a short stay. Staff at front desk are extremely helpful, friendly and efficient; the rooms and reception areas are clean and comfortable. A good free breakfast with a wide range of hot and cold food is a bonus. Also the hotel felt extremely secure, partly due to the continuous presence of Tampa police,... More

Stayed at this hotel at the recommendation of TA. The place does not disappoint at all - great location, friendly staff, clean, quality. Only issue was that I found a few ants in my room. They were few and far between, and because of my trip and timing, I slept through the night and didn't report the surprise until check... More

I stayed at this property on August 22, 2014 for two nights. It was a wonderful experience. Check in was fast and the gentleman at the front desk was very pleasant to speak to. When I arrived at my room I was pleased with the size of the room and the amenities. Everything was spotless and in order. I slept... More

Spent two nights in summer with the family while visiting Busch Gardens. Very conveniently located literally opposite Busch garden. Also located right in the middle of so many restaurants and eateries. Made the family stay very easy. I would recommended to family travellers and also Buscj Garden visitors.

We were in town specifically for Busch Gardens and didn't realize the package we purchased from BG put us at this location until we tried to check in at the wrong hotel. So, unfortunately, this review is a bit skewed as we were most upset about being so far out. This location is approx 9 mi from Busch Gardens, and... More

We can only echo every other fantabulous review left for this hotel. We stayed here for 3 nights as part of a Busch Gardens package. All the staff were extremely friendly, informative and helpful.

Dear Emma, As far as I'm concerned - you're the famous one! You made it all of the way from Swindon, after all. Seriously, though, it was a pleasure to serve your family and to help scrub that "old Tampa" impression and give to a shiny one in New Tampa :).
