Hotels was clean and up to date. I think they did a renovation a couple of years ago. Friendly staff, clean and very comfortable room. The room was larger than normal. Very close to USF and Bush Gardens. A large variety of resturant choice all within a mile or so. Plus all the fast food place you can think of.... More

Really great hotel recently refurbished. Our only problem was that our room stank of cigarettes despite it being a non smoking room but we were too tired to move rooms after a full day at busch gardens,

We had booked rooms with the Clarion Inn & Conference Center. The rooms were dirty the breakfast was large but bad quality and very unclean. We checked out and went to the La Quinta Inn & Suites near Busch Gardens. It was clean and comfortable. Thank you La Quinta Inn for a wonderful stay.

Overall the hotel was fine, with clean and large rooms, and nice personnel. Breakfast area was quite complete, and all these for a decent price. The only unfortunate circumstance for us was that we got a smoking room due to sold out non smoking ones: a great pity as it really smell bad. We had to wash most clothes afterwards.

My Family and I were in Tampa for a family reunion which was very nice. Our hotel was great; very clean, rooms were very spacious and the beds were so comfortable. The bathrooms were large and clean. The staff were very courteous and helpful. The breakfast was good; just would have liked some meat items. The pool and jacuzzi was... More

This was a basic, clean, nice hotel. The pool and hot tub area were great and really pretty. The staff was very nice. Breakfast was free and good. I would stay here again. Location was convenient also.

I couldn't have picked a better hotel to stay at while we went to orientation with our son who now goes to USF. The hotel is recently remodeled and it shows. Considering how booked they were, it was very clean and a lot quieter than I expected. The best part is we didn't need to leave our pets behind as... More

We made a last minute change of plans and decided to stay very close to USF so we could be close to the tour in the AM while looking over Florida colleges. We did not have a breath taking view but for the price we had a perfectly comfortable stay and it was very quiet even though we stayed on... More
