Excellent hotel, the room was clean, the bed was comfortable. Breakfast was complimentary and very good, including fresh fruits. Took advantage of the book early save 20% option. The staff was very friendly.

The staff was very helpful, and breakfast contained a good assortment of fruit, bread products, oatmeal, eggs, sausage, potatoes, etc., as well as juice and coffee. The area was clean and well maintained, and the food replenished often.

This is our 2nd time staying here and the positive is its clean and has great rates. In my opinion the hotel is starting to show some ware and tare. A couple of gym equipment didn't work. Breakfast was good but if your staying for a week you will get bored quickly. The only thing that changes is the eggs.... More

This hotel was adorable. The rooms were nice and the atmosphere around the hotel was cute. It reminded me of home. Our room was tucked in the corner which we loved. The room had 2 Queen Beds and the area is perfect. Not too close to the attractions, but not too far either. It took us about 25 minutes from... More

Stayed 2 nights in August 2014 on business trip. Got a coupon from hotel discount.com. The rate was less than that of the better known chains, even though the hotel is just as nice, very nice beds, clean rooms, fridge,microwave. Jodi at the front desk is great. I would stay here again.

We picked this location since we were visiting Busch Gardens and the Tampa Bay Forum this weekend. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. The breakfast was not very good. Donuts and other pastries seemed stale, other hot items (eggs, sausage patties, potatoes) were offered but not fully stocked when we arrived. The room was clean, but the beds and... More

The room was advertised as "roll in shower". In fact it was a regular tub with a shower stool that had to sit lengthwise so it was not stable. To work the hand held shower apperatus you had to stand up and reach to the top of the regular shower head. Not user friendly for handicapped people like my wife.... More

We were here for 1 night and it was passable. Friendly front desk, clean room, breakfast that is par for the course but one nice touch was an "omelette" type option where there were peppers, onions, tomatoes, cheese that could be added and then microwaved. The biggest complaint is the old style air conditioner. All night long it kept going... More

Good place for a short stay. The hotel is clean, the beds comfortable and the staff is very friendly and accommodating. Breakfast is not bad for American standards. For us the only downside was the location, very close to heavy traffic and most of the restaurants nearby were these awful chain places. Thanks to the guy at reception we found... More

We have stayed in several hotels in this area, but none quite as nice as this one. The hotel was very clean, and the front desk staff was polite and helpful. The room was spacious and clean. We will definitely stay here again.
