Great location for Busch Garden and the shuttle bus was awesome! The breakfast was convenient and the happy hour was nice. The room, itself, was just o.k. We had a king size suite but the mattress on the let out sofa was so thin that my two daughters (ages, 10 & 8) could not share it. They complained that the... More

Stayed here for a weekend family get away so we didn't get to use all of the amenities. The room was clean and spacious. Staff was friendly and courteous. Even though we didn't have the opportunity to enjoy the managers reception the concept is great. Will definitely stay here again.

Needs remodeling ASAP as a premium suite I expected more. Staff is friendly. Breakfast is really good. Other than the rooms everything else met my expectations. But rooms is whats more important than anything else.

Our family recently stayed here as our son was attending a soccer camp on USF grounds. We loved having access to a complimentary happy hour which also included a hot snack in addition to chips and dip. Our kids enjoyed the movie night in a special area near the lobby. (Cool refreshments were provided on a side table!). The complimentary... More

We reserved 50 guest rooms for an event we were having close by. Jennifer was helpful, flexible and accommodating to our many requests. The event attendees loved that the shuttle could take them to the event and back to the hotel again. We are looking to have our next event at the hotel.

Staff was very professional and timely, food was well prepared, and conference room was ready, organized and easy to use. The response time from the sales/event staff was also very timely and effective. Fair value for the room and food as well. Overall a very great venue to hold an event.

Our family was eaten alive by bed bugs when we stayed at this hotel! Our daughters eyes were swollen shut due to the bed bug bites on her face. We woke up to find the bugs crawling on the walls and the bed. This hotel must have known about this infestation but chose to let our family, with four young... More

I travel a decent amount for work and like Embassy Suites for their roominess and consistency. This one was decent but the bathroom was not up to snuff and to me that is huge. I now Florida is humid, but I should not see mold in the grout lines and my toilet seat should not look like it went through... More

Dear rogerroy1974, Thank you for taking the time out to give us a review. I am so sorry you found your bathroom unsatisfactory. I can assure you that is not the standard in our hotel. We work hard to make sure our engineering department keeps each and every bathroom maintenance free; my apologies. I hope you consider staying with us... More

My stay at the Embassy Suites this week was great. Tyrone and Elba at the omelet station made my morning! They greeted me wonderfully and made my omelet perfectly cooked to order. I look forward to seeing them again!
