“Great stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 weeks ago

We were a group of 92 women at this hotel for an activity in Tampa and the stay was excellent. They gave us a very good price to the group and the breakfasts were also excellent. We thank each one of the staff who were very friendly and even gave us transportation to the group in a motorcoach bus for the airport. There ara some details to be correct in the rooms, but it was good experience.

The room was less then perfect. Every lamp in the room was broken or falling apart. The room had a heavy smell of mildew. The price was cheap but so was the room. This used to be a very nice Holiday Inn. Apparently choice hotels does not have the same standards for their hotels.

Room Tip: Look at your room before you move into it.

Hello,

On behalf of the entire hotel staff, I apologize for the poor experience you had at your most recent stay. We are working hard to updating all the rooms including new carpets, linens, fresh coat of paint and other details. We hope you choose to visit us again next time you are in the area to experience the renovated room.

Sincerely,
Benjamin T
Owner Representative

We stayed two nights for a Busch Gardens trip. We got the jacuzzi room. It was a brand new bathroom, new tile, new shower and cabinet. Mirrors all around the jacuzzi. The main room was nice New carpet and nice down comforter. Needed a table or chair. My 3 year old had a blast in the pirate pool. The grounds were pretty with all the plants and flowers and cute fake animals all over for the kids. The breakfast was "ok" not the greatest but the normal hot food cafeteria grade eggs potatoes sausage and biscuit and gravy. Would definitely recommend for kids!

We stayed here for a few days until we could find a place to live. We needed a few extra days. Paul was very nice and really took care of us.The room was clean and quiet. We had a
pleasant stay.
I would stay here again.

Newly renovated lobby, fairly easy check in, $ 50 for one night, room clean, everything looks new, down comforter, clean sheets, bath dated, but clean, haven't ventured out yet, did notice more than 5 questionable "ladies" in odd attire, loitering on property,......hummmm, tender girls I suspect, to each their own! $ 50 I can live with it! Chipotle grille across the street!! Nice staff so far!

The electronic key did not open the door. The second pair of keys form the front desk could not do this either. There was at least one other guest of the hotel with the same problem. Waited outside the room in the heat & high humidity for maintenance to come and open the door. Nobody showed up in 10 minutes, as promised. Went back to the lobby, Zero attention from the receptionist. There was a police car in front of the hotel dealing with somebody who claimed to be a guest of the hotel. The whole atmosphere did not feel much safe or relaxing.
Although close to Busch gardens and USF, I would not recommend this hotel except in a case of emergency.

Clean rooms, decent breakfast, just stayed overnight last minute. It was a little pricy but considering it was only 1.5 miles from Busch Gardens it was ok. The staff was very accommodating and helpful after not being able to stay at the hotel we booked.
