We have never stayed in such a nice place with such friendly staff! This place is a partner hotel of Busch Gardens & had a great deal so we chose it. Even though it is 9 miles from Busch, it is in a very safe location and well worth the drive.
First we met Sara, a very friendly & bubbly desk clerk who welcomed us like we were family. Then in the evening, we met Judy...very much the same & also like family. We stayed 3 nights, beginning on Christmas Eve and we awoke to a stocking stuffed with goodies outside our door.
At breakfast Christmas morning...nice hot one by the way...we saw a nice man addressing many guests and I thought he was promoting a time-share or something. NOT SO! He was the manager, George, who was wishing everyone a Merry Christmas & asking us how our stay was. He sat down at our table & we talked with him about so many things it was like he was family as well. Home away from home...that's what it was like. Do your family a favor...stay here if you are in the area even if not going to Busch Gardens. The room and amenities are the best and the price was well within our range! Thanks Everyone at New Tampa! Happy New Year to you all!
