I have stayed here several times over the past year because my son is attending USF. Always a great stay. Staff is very kind and helpful. Will stay again. When we needed polyester pillows (most rooms now have down pillows), front desk found us pillows quickly. Rooms are a nice size with area to move around.

The room and hotel location are great (so close to USF and the MOSI), however, the breakfast was sub par. Maybe we are just used to the Holiday Inn Express, but it was not what I would expect. The room was clean and comfortable.
