We were a group of 92 women at this hotel for an activity in Tampa and the stay was excellent. They gave us a very good price to the group and the breakfasts were also excellent. We thank each one of the staff who were very friendly and even gave us transportation to the group in a motorcoach bus for... More

The room was less then perfect. Every lamp in the room was broken or falling apart. The room had a heavy smell of mildew. The price was cheap but so was the room. This used to be a very nice Holiday Inn. Apparently choice hotels does not have the same standards for their hotels.

The main room was nice New carpet and nice down comforter. Needed a table or chair. My 3 year old had a blast in the pirate pool. The grounds... More

We stayed here for a few days until we could find a place to live. We needed a few extra days. Paul was very nice and really took care of us.The room was clean and quiet. We had a pleasant stay. I would stay here again.

The electronic key did not open the door. The second pair of keys form the front desk could not do this either. There was at least one other guest of the hotel with the same problem. Waited outside the room in the heat & high humidity for maintenance to come and open the door. Nobody showed up in 10 minutes,... More

Clean rooms, decent breakfast, just stayed overnight last minute. It was a little pricy but considering it was only 1.5 miles from Busch Gardens it was ok. The staff was very accommodating and helpful after not being able to stay at the hotel we booked.

Litter outside and was never cleaned up by the time we checked out on our 2nd day.

The woman that was working instantly got an attitude and started running her mouth complaining out loud. The food was... More

I have to say, I've been a customer of Choice Hotel properties for a decade....this is, by FAR, the worst hotel I've ever had the misfortune to book from them! The room......where to start!

The room had a musty odor. The carpeting needed replacing. Breakfast was so-so and not too appetizing looking. My teenage son was afraid to sleep in the bed for fear of bugs. Low and behold an ant with wings was sitting onto of the sheets (termite???) I wouldn't recommend to anyone.
