We stayed overnight in this hotel in January 2013 while visiting the University of Southern Florida which is right across the street. Could not have asked for a better experience ! The 2-bed room was very very clean, spacious and conveniently designed. The staff were gracious, friendly and extremely helpful. The hotel has a large outdoor swimming pool and hot tub set within a lovely walled garden. While I was catching an evening swim, several guests were clearly enjoying the ambience at poolside tables while working on laptops. Free wifi. I didn't try the exercise room but it was large and had several machines and TVs to watch. There is a wide assortment of snack foods available in machines and a microwave for heating. Breakfast was perfect for us -- many choices including boiled eggs, breads, bagels, cereals, yogurt, fruit as well as a waffle machine -- fresh hot waffles were unique in my experience with hotel breakfasts. Rates were extremely reasonable -- less than half of what we had to pay in Miami the day before for an inferior hotel with no breakfast. Only minor drawback would be that there are no restaurents or food stores within walking distance but that can be solved with a short drive. Highly recommended.
