Nice hotel but very busy with Cruise guests. Very clean and quite in spite of being next to Interstate 4 Hyw. Breakfast was decent plenty of food replenished often since hotel was full. Great staff see Sabreena she does a great job. Ask for Gerry the shuttle bus driver he's good. Both will take care of you. Avoid Brian the... More

We needed a place to stay before leaving on a Cruise from the Port of Tampa. Friends found this hotel and said they had a shuttle to the port and we could leave our car in the well-lit parking lot. It was everything we could have asked for. The staff was nice, the room was just right and the breakfast... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night. We came into Florida and wanted to stay here before heading to Miami the next day. Convenient hotel, near the freeway. Free breakfast, free parking, and free wifi makes up for the hotel being near the freeway and short driving distance to restaurants. My husband thought the location had been renovated... More

This hotel may be rated a "gem" and a 4 star facility, but its location muddy's the water a little bit. Located right next to the Sr-400 (Hi Way #4) the traffic noise while lounging in the pool area is pretty intense. They play fairly loud music to try and drown out the traffic noise, but it doesn't help. The... More

Not only was the property easy to get to, the service when we arrived was phenomenal! The room was great and the only bad thing was a personal annoyance. I am very tall and the shower head is lower than I'd like. The property was impeccable and the breakfast was exactly what we expected from a Choice hotel. I only... More

Located off interstate 4 which was very convenient and a mile away from Busch Gardens. Manager allowed us to check-in early. Hotel was clean & the staff very friendly. Breakfast was served from 7-9 and there was always enough for everybody to eat as much as you liked.

The rooms were large and very well equipped. We booked a two bedroom suite the only downside was the fact that the second bedroom only had a sofa bed, which we had to make up every night. You had to have a car to visit restaurants in the area as the hotel was not close to any restaurants. The breakfast... More

I was skeptical at first but a really nice quality inn - worthy of the money - last minute booking - the manager really nice - try to get first floor near the pool away from I-4 they have a shuttle also - take you to Ybor if you ask in advance - breakfast was more than continental

We have stayed here at least six or eight times. This hotel always is absolutely amazing with each stay for the cost of the room and friendly treatment by all. They have a great hot breakfast and people watching to make sure everything is stocked and answer any questions. The scrambled eggs and fresh sausage would be as good as... More

I picked this place after reading reviews on TripAdvisor. We were taking a cruise out of Tampa and needed to arrive the night before our departure. When I booked the room I told the front desk clerk that I read some people reserved parking at the hotel. She said that they had a special that included the room, hot breakfast,... More
