As stated by others, this is an older property but it has been updated. Perks were great: complimentary made to order breakfast, ice cream, bottled water. Was fairly close to restaurants-you would need a car. My room was roomy, clean and comfortable. Safe environment. Not sure why they charge for unsecured self parking.

We stayed here for one night as a base for a two day visit to Busch gardens. We arrived at 0955 with a view to taking the shuttle to Busch gardens for opening time as every good theme park goer knows, the first hour at any park is the best of the day. Anyway, on going to the reception we... More

I love the staff at this hotel. An employee brought us extra towels and offered to put a pad on the sofa bed and make it up for us! We were surprised by a $5 parking charge on bill, but it was corrected with no hassle. The bathroom counter is conveniently long and deep. Hilton Honors club members get 2... More

This was the selected hotel for a conference that I attended. There were some good things: 1. Breakfast is free every morning, and the food was really good. 2. There is also a reception/happy hour every evening with free, unlimited drinks and snacks for guests. 3. The hotel shuttle is very prompts and will take you to a number of... More

Greeted warmly at check-in, recieved discounted rate that was unexpected. Breakfast was bountiful: something for everyone with a large time window to enjoy it. Since we have a 3 year old, the suite helps him sleep while mom and dad stay in the other room. Location on USF campus was great as both my wife and I are alumns and... More

We hosted an event at the hotel earlier this week. Yanet was a wonderful catering manager and a true pleasure to work with. This is about the eighth time I have worked directly with her and she truly helps make the event the best it can be. Ask for Yanet next time you plan an event there!

I've stayed in this hotel for the last 3 years in order to be close to Busch Gardens so I could attend Howl-O-Scream. Very convenient location and they have a shuttle service that runs until HOS is over at 1am or 2am so you don't have to worry about driving back and forth. I'm very picky about hotels and this...

We stay at this hotel once a year for Hallowscream at Busch Gardens. The hotel is very nice and the central courtyard is a really nice feel. The staff that we interacted with were extremely nice and polite while still seeming competent every time. The Happy hour is always nice to get a few free drinks and snacks before heading... More

By far the best hotel stay I have had in a while. Although I did not interact with the staff as much as other guests, the experience was enjoyable and pleasant. I would stay at this property and other ES in the future.

I had problems with the front desk last time I stayed here, but either they righted the ship or that was an anomaly. The great rooms, great (free) breakfast, and great (free) happy hour are still there. The location is ideal if you're visiting USF or Busch Gardens. This would have been a perfect five-star stay if they weren't still... More
