“Not great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

Apart from the proximity to Busch gardens and the half decent breakfast I could not find too many positives. The room was smelly, the ac unit noisy and the furnishings worn. This was our base for the last two nights of our holiday and was not the way we wanted our vacation to end. Would choose somewhere else when next in Tampa

this was a great place to stay for just about $100. the room was clean and pretty comfortable. we have a family of 5, so the extra space and pull out bed is appreciated. the hotel is only minutes from busch gardens and the water park. the breakfast was good, hot breakfast sandwiches, eggs, french toast, cereal, bagels, juices, etc. they were kind enough to make my daughter a special breakfast because she eats gluten free. the pool was warm, overall this is a great place that's affordable.

I booked this through Hyatt's web site as a pre pay and got a great rate. Hotels around Tampa can be hit and miss so it is really nice when you find one that is consistent from stay to stay. This Hyatt Place didn't disappoint. Clean comfortable rooms. The only complaint is that when can't work from the desk and watch TV due to the way the TV is mounted. A minor issue.
I will return to this Hyatt when I'm back in Tampa provided the rate is acceptable.

Room Tip: If you want a great pizza, try Pizza Squared just down the street. Yummy Detroit style (think Buddie...

Stayed here overnight as we arrived from the UK late in the evening. We had to drive to Orlando the next day. My children got very excited as they saw the rollercoasters of Bush Gardens at the end of the road! Check in was smooth and staff very friendly. The breakfast was included and plentiful. It was rather busy but we managed to find seating and filled up before we hit the road. Its a no frill, comfortable and conveniently located hotel. No complaints to be reported!

We just finished a seven week stay at this Hotel. My Husband was undergoing treatments at Moffitt Cancer Hospital and I was along for support. During my stay I observed a staff that was unbelievably caring and kind. There were mostly families vacationing at Busch Gardens however there were a few of us- for Medical reasons- who were fortunate to have found this spot. The shuttle was there- when we needed it. The room was laid out so that it fit our needs wonderfully. We even got to see the fireworks at Busch Gardens- at night- from our window. The General Manager is hands on and goes out of his way to accommodate the guests. Even Housekeeping adjusted their schedule to accommodate my Husbands needs. Good job -Hyatt- you have to be proud of this Hotel. I am writing this - hopefully- others will read this and take advantage of this Hotel. Loretta S.

Saw this Hotel on TA. We only needed a place to hole up for the night after Busch Gardens and wanted a short stay based on price but neither did we wish to spoil the occasion with a cheap room so the reviews persuaded us to stay. Good decision all round! The price was good but so was everything else too. From the pleasant welcome on arrival through to the hot breakfast and also the VERY convenient use of the shuttle to the park the Hotel exceeded our expectations. The room was large and amply equipped and clean as expected but where the hotel really excelled was with their staff and the atmosphere that was created - worthy of hotels charging a lot more. Well done Hyatt. I am very happy to leave this review so that others will stay with you. Dave, Plymouth, UK

Room Tip: Clearly set out your wishes.
