“Finally Back to Where It Should Be”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

Started staying here many years ago when newly opened. Over the years hotel had an overall steady decline to which we stopped staying here. After reading recent reviews that Hotel was finally renovated, and we decided to give it a try again last week. Hotel is almost back to where it should be, clean fresh and friendly. Rooms are all redone as are the hallways and breakfast area. Breakfast itself lacks variety however and was the same each day of our 4 mornings.Business area is too close to breakfast room and has only one terminal which sometimes causes you to wait quite a while. Staff is very friendly and tries to be accommodating, but housekeeping is a little slow as our room was not ready at 5 pm, even with a 4 o'clock check-in. Actually saw the Mgr. on duty cleaning a room, and linens etc. were still in the hallway at 6pm.Hotel still has only one small elevator, that does cause problems during check out early in the AM. Outdoor pool area has been redone also and the hot tub very enjoyable. This hotel is centrally located to all sights around Tampa Bay area. We like the Temple Terrace area to stay since it's just off the Florida Turnpike I-75 and close to I-4 and I-275 as well. Orlando is only 1 hr. away and St. Petersburg about the same. Rates here are far better than closer into the city, and less chaotic in the times of high volume. With a few more tweaks to the service hotel could be an excellent once again.

Room Tip: Book an upper floor room facing towards gatehouse not to far from elevator. for quiet Has long hallw...

We stayed at this hotel for our trip to Busch Gardens/Adventure Island as well as a day trip to LegoLand. It was very close to Busch Gardens as well as the Tampa Airport. The Staff at the hotel was great. They were very helpful and friendly. The only thing the hotel is lacking in is the Housekeeping. We are a family of 4 and registered as such and we only ever got 2 or 3 days each day. The front desk provided us with additional towels right away but it was a pain to ask. We also asked for more soaps (dishwasher/Bath) and didn't receive either one until we went to the front desk again to ask. It seems housekeeping only empties the small trash cans provided and makes the beds. The room was clean upon arrival though they picked up the trash each day so overall it was a good hotel to stay at, especially with a wonderful front desk staff. The kitchen was great for us especially after a long day at the park so we could just grab some takeout (or enjoy their meals they serve Monday-Thursday).

Room Tip: We did a one bedroom with a pullout sofa and for us it was a little small. We have a 2 year old and...

This is great hotel to relax in at the end of a long day visiting our USF college student. It's close to the campus, very clean, quiet and relaxing. Breakfast was very nice and the staff was very friendly. What a refreshing way to wake up!

Room Tip: The studio has plenty of room to spread out and enjoy dinner either cooking or from one of the local...

Staff was VERY polite, VERY nice & very helpful with direction. Our room was very clean. Definitely worth the money. We will be staying here again no doubt. Amazing view of a lake and trees. Very quiet. And awesome fireplace too!!!

Stayed here for 2 nights while visiting friends north of Tampa for Super Bowl weekend. Found the place to be simply “Super” Clean comfortable rooms, fabulous grounds (the pup’s loved it) and a great breakfast. Special thanks to Tova and Jerry Charles for making our stay “Super”

I have stayed here 3 times the past month while my Dad was going through cancer treatments at Moffitt Cancer Center. The hotel is very close to the hospital and they are so friendly and caring. they greet you whenever you walk by the desk and can't help you enough. Large, clean rooms and they offer a discount for Mofffitt patients. very flexible with last minute changes to my reservations. They have a free breakfast which includes fresh cut fruit, waffles, hot scrambled eggs, etc. and a free nightly hot "snack" (chili, soup/salad, meatball subs). Really great place to stay!

Good hotel with great staff! We spent 3 nights here in a studio suite while we were in Tampa. Hotel has recently been remodeled (except the kitchen cabinets) in the "new Residence Inn style". The suite was very comfortable and we had a good wi-fi signal 24/7. Suite was spotlessly clean except the exterior windows needed to be cleaned. Outside pool area was nice, breakfast buffet was good, and breakfast staff were outstanding/attentive to all guests! Had one problem the first night but spoke to the general manager the next morning and problem was resolved....excellent customer service! This hotel is right across the street from Lettuce Lake Park.....a jewel of a county park! If you are at this hotel on the weekend, make sure to join the free 8:30am nature walk with a park ranger ($2 park entrance fee/day). We saw lots of wildlife......wonderful boardwalks/observation tower for bird watching! This hotel was a wonderful retreat after a busy day in Tampa!

Room Tip: We stayed on the third floor-end-- facing North Telecom Parkway......could hear some road noise...no...
