“Great place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

We stayed only one night and it was very nice. The entrance to the hotel was very colorful and unique. They have 24hr food service (not room service) you call in your order & pick it up. You can eat in the dining area or take it to your room. The is a great option and was packed at 6pm. There is a variety of items to eat, including beer & wine. Rooms have been renovated and found out they are renovating the entire lobby area soon.

Room Tip: Higher floor and end room less traffic and noise

Spent another night at this location.

What I liked:
-Tasty free breakfast
-Friendly, helpful and pleasant staff
-Spacious rooms
-Good price

What I did not care for:
-Unlike my prior stays at this property, the condition of this room was below par. My room was barely okay in terms of condition and I could see that without reconditioning within the next 4-6 months it would be dumpy. My sofa/lounge area seating was in need of cleaning and/or reupholstering.

Will I return? At this point, I'm unsure due to my concerns with getting a room that needs refurbishing.

We stayed here for about 4 nights. The staff (both the gallery hosts as well as the cleaning staff, hospitality staff, etc. were all very friendly and accommodating. The free breakfast in the morning was nice, though a little more variety would be nice. The selections were the same during the week, and only changed on the weekend. The hotel itself was clean and tidy. Pool hours indicated that it was from 6 - 10, I think, but we saw folks still in the pool at 10:30. Not a big deal, just an observation. Noise level was about average, Every now and again you could hear doors/kids/people in the halls, but nothing that was particularly wild and crazy.

Locationwise:
Hotel is about 15 - 20 min from Tampa Int'l Airport.
It's located just across the street and down the block from Busch Gardens/Adventure Island, so if that's where you're headed, this is the perfect location. While there is no "gift shop" in the hotel, there is a Wawa gas station and a CVS pharmacy next door, so any emergency supplies that the hotel doesn't have available are easily obtainable. Museum of Science and Industry is a short (5 min) drive away and great for kids. Tampa's Lowry Park Zoo (also great for kids) is about a 10 min drive away. Hotel itself is easily accessible to 275 which is essentially the main thruway to all other parts of Tampa you may be interested in - the Zoo, Riverwalk, Ybor City, Westshore Mall, Airport, bridge to St. Pete's. etc. If you're not interested in the hotel's food (which they do have a light 24 hour menu with limited sandwiches, flatbreads/pizzas and apps), there is a strip mall nearby with a WinnDixie, and Indian Restaurant, a Chinese place, etc., and if you go down Busch Blvd towards 275 there are TONS of fast food places.

All in all, a great location and a most enjoyable stay!

This Hyatt Place has a great location if you are visiting Busch Gardens. It is conveniently located near many restaurants near a University. It did not feel unsafe at all to us. The rooms were nice spacious and excellent. We travel with 2 teenagers and we usually get the King room using the sofa bed for the kids and we have lots of space. We like the large TV set that allows you to input movies from your computer or iPhone (provided you have the right cables). The free breakfast offered a number of options but it did not have a waffle maker.

Because we arrived very late each day we did not use the pool. It looked identical to the one in Fort Myers but the location was not as good.

Room Tip: If you travel with smaller children I'd recommend getting a king over a double. If you get a Pri...

We stayed here for 2 nights.

The staf was friendly and helpful, breakfast was free, not a mega buffet but it was quit allright.

If you are planning to visit busch gardens the hotel is located very good. But at night stay in your hotel or take the car to downtown or south tampa. The neighbourhoud is not that safe ...

Rooms were big and clean. Just the light in the bathroom wasn't really cosy (it was plain white light)

We booked via hotwire and got a great price. Value was perfect for what we payed.

We were a little nervous booking this hotel due to only average reviews but very glad we took the chance. There isn't a more convenient place to stay while visiting Busch Gardens Tampa/Adventure Island. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Staff is super friendly and accommodating. Continental breakfast is pretty good...could be a little warmer(eggs/sandwiches). We reserved our room through JetBlue Vacation package and could not have got a better deal on air and hotel...highly recommend checking out that option. If you want to take advantage of their free shuttle to Busch Gardens, sign up the night before as they fill up quickly. Avoid the $15/day parking fee at Busch Gardens that way.

After reading a bunch of positive reviews online we decided to choose the Hyatt place/ Busch gardens. We were shocked at surrounding of the hotel. We walked in our room and found holes in the carpet, dried urine under the toilet seat,furinture was very worn and masking tape stuck to the walls. Also, from inside our room you could hear people talking and doors closing at all hours of the day/night. I feel horrible for anyone who would stay on the 1st or 2nd floor because the lobby was as loud as a sports bar at around 12:00 am. Other guests were out in their pajamas complaining about the noise. Overall we were very disappointed! We feel that for the same money we could have found a cleaner and more comfortable place to stay in a better location.
