Tori at the front desk is very helpful, courteous and friendly. With a pleasant smile, she makes you feel at home immediately. The hotel is clean, tastefully decorated and the pool area is dazzling. I will stay here again.

I was pleasantly surprised by this hotel. Great price, clean, and great location. The hotel offers a shuttle to Busch Gardens (which saves you on paying for parking). The staff was very helpful and friendly.

Stayed at this hotel during our annual holiday to Florida. Extremely helpful receptionist, hotel good location for Busch Gardens. Good breakfast, much better than the usual continental breakfast provided in the UK. If we are ever in this area again would have no hesitation in staying in this hotel again.

This is a lovely hotel with a very nice courtyard to the pool. The restaurant served excellent food. The hotel provides a shuttle service to Busch Gardens, which is probably the reason why people stay at this hotel, it's location. The room we had was clean and spacious. The staff is very helpful and courteous.

Stayed here for a visit of the Tampa region. Friendly and fast check in, room was clean en quiet. Breakfast could be better. All and all a stay more then worth. Could leave my car here during visit to Busch Gardens, saved me some $ 15 for parking there.

Just about everything you'd expect from a holiday Inn. One slight issue no milk in the room just powdered creamer for coffee. Decor wise our room could have done with a paint.
