Nice, clean, modern hotel. Traveled with my husband, 14 yr old daughter, and 13 yr old son. We spent two nights there when we stopped in Tampa to spend a day at Busch Gardens on the way to Marco Island. We had two rooms on the first floor near the lobby. It was quiet, very comfortable, and we felt safe. Free in-room wi-fi was a plus. First night we walked to Olive Garden next door for a late supper. There are plenty of fast food and chain restaurants in the vicinity. Arnie checked us in and was great. Robert, the shuttle driver to Busch Gardens, deserves all the credit he gets! He set the tone for a great day and a great end to the day! Don't forget to tip him! The only reason we don't rate the hotel as "excellent" is that the breakfast buffet is too small for the number of people that come down, and the lines are very long even just for coffee. Despite that, we'd definitely stay again.
