“Visiting Family,Great Stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

Love the location,close to a wide variety of restaurants where I was able to spend time with my distant family this weekend..Room was clean,although I'd book in advance next time and not allow my husband to do it,the room was extremely to small for myself my husband and our three kids.Front desk staff was really nice,housekeeping also..It was like a home away from home there can't complain..Special thanks to the lady in red(no name tag-didn't ask her name) for giving me the extra blanket for my son.They go out of their way to make you comfortable there..All around nice hotel,will stay again.

Good location, friendly staff. The staff that was handling the breakfast table was very efficient and courteous. Clean rooms. Showers could use some updating. Minor complaint: one night there was a party going on in another floor and it went later into the night (2am). We should have notified front desk. Other than that it was very good for the value.

Room Tip: Ask what the policy is for after 11pm noise. It may be as easy as calling the front desk if there is...

I had an extended stay in this hotel for work, and felt very welcomed by the staff. When they saw that I would be there for a while, they made a point to ask about me, where I was from, and always said hello. The manager is also very nice and professional. I liked the variety of the breakfast as well as the option of indoor jacuzzi or outdoor pool. The housekeeping staff were also great, and the maintenance man was quick to respond to any needs I had. I would recommend this hotel to any of my family or friends.

We stayed at the Hotel from July 28 to 31, 2012. The front desk representative (s) were very nice and accomodating. The front desk assisted us with anything we needed during our stay. The room was as we expected and clean. Housekeeping department cleaned the room daily. The hotel is well kept. The hotel location is convenient to Busch Gardens and Adventure Island. The free shuttle service to Busch Gardens and Adventure Island is convenient. We would select this hotel again and refer friends for trips to Busch Gardens and Adventure Island and for other trips within the same area.

Our room was as promised, but I was a little disappointed with the shower. It may just need updating. The tile floor just had a dirty appearance and I was grateful for the bath mat. My husband really enjoyed the jacuzzi. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean. The housekeeping staff did not clean the room, but we may have had our sign out at the wrong time. I would have appreciated them at least checking with us. Overall, it was fine, but I really expected more from the reviews.

Thank you so much for taking the time to review our hotel. We are sorry the shower was not all what you expected. It is often hard to replace things like tile especially during high season because we must put the room out of service. We are so glad your husband enjoyed or 24 hour indoor jacuzzi. With “Do not Disturb” signs our policy is that all staff must refrain from knocking, calling, or entering a guest room unless advised by the guest. This policy is put in place to best accommodate and respect the guest wishes. We hope you will give our hotel another chance, as it is our wish to provide the best customer service possible.

We found this hotel on trip advisor and loved the reviews we thought what could go wrong! Well first off we got to the hotel and the front desk rep was very nice we went to are room and then decided to chec out the pool.... They shouldn't even call it that it was an extermly small pool. We went to take a shower and discovered there was no hot water at all. We called the front desk and they moved us to a diffrent room. We packed up everything and went to pick up the remote to turn on the tv and all of a sudden I thought I saw a bug but wasn't sure but then My mom came out of the shower and then to are horror two cockroaches came out of the bottom of the tv stand.... We decided to leave at this point and went to the front desk asked for a full refund and he said his manger wasn't in but to call and they would refund both nights. He gave us the mangers card so we decided not to write a bad review but then we called the next day and they said no they would not issue us a refund! I was so mad because not only were we lied to but we had to go to a diffrent hotel and pay even more money! This place was extermly awful and I would not recommend this roach motel at all!

Stayed here July 13-15. Great staff, easy checkin. Very convenient to Busch Gardens and Adventure Island. Shuttle is very accommodating and will take you and pick you up when needed. Room was spotless. Great breakfast! Would definitely make this my hotel of choice in the Tampa area!
