My family was visiting Tampa to see Busch Gardens. It was about 10-15 minutes to get to Busch Gardens from the hotel but it was worth it. The hotel is clean, the staff were all very friendly and helpful. I'm going to categorize my review for easier viewing:
Our room: I had expected to be able to cook our dinners while we were here to save money, but once in our room I discovered there weren't any pots and pans. There were dishes but nothing to cook with so I didn't cook. There is a regular size frig, microwave, sink, and stove top. Not a lot of room in the kitchen though. Living room was spacious and so was the bedroom area that was separate.
Free Breakfast & Welcome Home Reception: I'll start with the "Welcome Home Reception". I didn't really know what this was until our first night but Mon-Fri from 5-7 pm the hotel has a free dinner and adult beverages (all you can drink during this time beer & wine). They have a monthly menu of what they will serve each of those nights. Our first night they had fajitas, Spanish rice, refried beans, salad, tea, coffee, and it was really good! So this more than made up for not having pots and pans in the room to be able to cook, and it still saved me money!! The breakfast was very nice as well. One morning they had scrabbled eggs, sausage, toast, oatmeal (nuts, granola, etc to put in it), cereal, yogurt, waffles, oj, apple juice, coffee, and hot cocoa.
Laundry facilities: They do have laundry facilities to be able to do your own laundry. Although there are only two washers and two dryers. And the price wasn't bad at $1 each load.
