The hotel is a great value. Very nice pool and courtyard area with wonderful gardens. The Burger Theory restaurant is amazing food and amazing staff both for breakfast and dinner. Minor things such as garbage and gum that could be cleaned up, that said it would be nice if guests didn't litter to begin with. Loud on the last day... More

This is a great location especially if you're visiting Busch Gardens! The staff is friendly and the rooms are clean, updated and affordable. Close to restaurant and shops and not too far from Ybor City either. I definitely will stay here again!

Hotel is very clean, all suites and has an awesome courtyard in the center of the hotel. Certainly makes you relax at the end of a very long work day.

The Holiday Inn Hotel and Suites is a fairly nice hotel and has a wonderful pool area in the center of the hotel. However, it was extremely noisy which made sleeping difficult. We stayed in a king leisure room and the room was tiny. It was very clean and had updated furnishings. However, there was only the bed and a... More
