My family and I were only staying a short period to visit other family members living in the Tampa area. On our second day we went to the beach in the afternoon and did not return until evening, only to discover money and other items missing. The staff seemed very unconcerned and the local authorites were called. The sheriff stated he had been to this hotel for issues in the past, one issue being theft. The room key when checked showed only the housekeeper entering the room during our absence. We checked out the next morning with the issue still being unresolved and the staff still seeming unconcerned. The hotel overall is very clean and close to Busch Gardens but as I have learned the staff is untrustworthy. I would have been better off keeping our purses and suitcases in the car. Be very careful when booking a reservation here.
