“Baymont Inn near USF”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

This was a short weekend trip to see my daughter at college. I wanted something reasonably priced, close to college and a little bigger room than the average hotel room. This fit the bill. For 2 nights it was only 123 (show your motor club card for extra discount) Your stay includes a good breakfast of waffles, fruit, cereal, bagels, french toast, juice, hard boiled eggs, and pastries. I got the 2 bedroom unit but be warned, it really isn't 2 bedroom, it is 2 rooms. One has 2 beds in it and the other has a pull out couch with microwave and mini fridge. That could be deceiving to most people but I looked at pictures and kind of figured that was what you get. When checking in, one lady was questioning why her unit wasn't a 2 bedroom. It does sleep 6 if you want to cram everyone in. The rooms are average but comfortable. I saw some reviewers say it was dirty, it does have a little musty smell and I could tell they didn't sweep under the bed but for the most part it was clean. The pool area is a little small but nice and it looks like they took out the jacuzzi. Free newspapers and coffee in the lobby. Lots of cheaper restaurants around that deliver free (pizza, Italian). I got 4 flyers through the door within 1/2 hour of being here and the prices are pretty good. I would recommend this hotel for those on a budget and want a little more room.

Room Tip: The place was booked solid so I would suggest making reservations a couple weeks in advance and use...

Tried to stay there for a night the lobby was the first sign of trouble , smelled like nicotine and urinal mints. The room wasnt much better dirty and moldy . deiffinitly in need of improvement ,could hear the neighbors yelling at their kids as they were stomping on the adjourning door to my room.
I left and found another hotel room much better suited to my idea of relaxation did not even ask for a refund . People hanging out on the balconys making too much noise . If you are on a budget and not concerned about relaxation and peace stay here you will have a great time . otherwise spend a few extra dollars and find better accommidations My kids were so thrilled when we left for a better hotel.

Room Tip: Spend extra money for better accommidations stay away from this ghetto

From the start the American Flag outside was filthy and torn. The lobby & elevator smelled like a brewery. The toilet ran all night unless you jiggled it. The sheets (when I finally put it on myself correctly) had holes in them. The rug was filthy and holey and oh yes the phone didn't work. The one person at the desk when we arrived was on the phone and never got off while we waited to register. The grill in the breakfast room was not open & we were told never is. Nothing for a diabetic to eat except a hard boiled egg. But there was a sitting room outside the bedroom and two TV sets and sinks, one in each room. Most of all the door to the balcony was unlocked so anyone could enter the room at anytime.

Room Tip: Stay away from the pool area, quite noisy at night.

It is an ok location, even though it is close to Busch Gardens, there not many attractions near by. Area is not nice, no walk ways. Staff is very rude. We found few items missing in the room after we came back from the park. I would recommend everybody who stays there to bring all valuable items with them and do not leave them in the room. It hard to find parking. I think this factors are really important in choosing hotel, and I wish somebody would tell me about before I stayed there.
