“Great Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

We have stayed here once before and each time we found the service to be excellent. The staff are courteous and helpful with directions, food preparation and local information. The hotel is located in a funky spot behind a restaurant and easy to miss when driving by but it is a perfect spot for Busch Gardens visitors or visiting our daughter at the University (USF). It is priced right and the rooms are nicely appointed.

Room Tip: Stay on 2nd floor or higher.

We stayed here for a couple of nights before our cruise and although this area is a little busy with traffic noise the hotel itself is immaculate. The staff were so accommodating and you never felt that you were putting them out. They offer a free shuttle service which went over and above in terms of service. The rooms are very large with excellent facilities. The staff here really are good and make this hotel worth staying at.

Its my second night here and I am amazed by the always can do attitude of the staff. Above expectations service always! Asked for restaurant recommendations, they gave us a list printed out to choose from....asked about a specific restaurant and there he was on his computer, printing the directions for us. Asked to be dropped to a nearby mall and the answer was, the shuttle is ready now......forgot to remove privacy from the door in the morning and hence not cleaned, at 8 PM gave the front desk a call and the guy from front desk came up himself replaced the towels, removed trash and replaced glasses. Wow, these guys r just amazing! Very spacious and clean rooms. We were travelling with a 3 year old, and had Busch garden as the main agenda. Nothing I could complain about. Had a car as well so lots of places nearby to drive around. Shuttle to Busch garden is also very convenient. But the service just did the magic for me.

Room Tip: we stayed in the 3rd floor. Had no issues at all.

The staff is great but the location is something to be desired. No place to walk to but a couple of below sub par restaurants. The breakfast was good but when we had a quick snack before our Yankee game the food was not good at all. I had to call for room service, we left our hotel room a early in the morning and came back at around 4 in the afternoon and our room was never made up, very disappointed in that.

The hotel location is around 10-15 minutes from Tampa downtown. Plenty of free parking. Free wifi, good enough breakfast and great to have some food items available 24/7. As long as you set your expectations to be for a low 3 star hotel, you'd be good. We were 2 families that stayed here with kids for 3 nights while we were visiting Tampa for the 2014 IIFA awards. Close to Busch Gardens, some good restaurants and a CVS store. Courteous staff.

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.
