My son and I just returned from 4 nights in Tampa watching winter baseball. I chose this hotel because it was central to the baseball parks and it received great reviews on trip advisor. It was very obvious to me that each and every staff member truly cared about making our stay complete. I have to say that Judy at... More

We stayed four days...three nights....and had a 14 day pass to Busch Gardens. Our room had a king-sized bed...and was extremely comfortable. This was a wonderful hotel.

This is an update to a review from one year ago. There's lots of great things about this hotel and a few little problems, none of which should keep you from staying here if you get a good price or the hotel is convenient to where you want to be. Among the great things: super friendly staff who greet you... More

I went there with my family for spring break, we had a 2 Queen Suite. It was perfect for us. Many restaurants in the area! The hotel is very quiet. Busch Gardens is close by. Ask the hotel for discount tickets.

Stayed at other hotels where there is a smokey or musty odor, but with this one not a smell. The garbage cans are very clean and also the carpet. The only thing was not so good is the washing machine and dryer on the third floor. Usually my skin would itch soon as I go on the beds. But this... More

I just returned from a 7 night stay at this HI with my sister and niece. This was the perfect hotel for 3 women traveling alone. Very quiet and safe location.

The front desk greeted us and offered a beverage at check-in just like they advertised. Ice Cream Social is just serve yourself pre-packaged ice cream treats, but for free who's complaining. Breakfast was good ... they promote a pancake maker vs a waffle maker. Not bad, but think I'd prefer the waffles. Everything about our stay was very good except... More
