All of the positive reviews of this hotel are correct. I've been to several CIS locations and this one is at the top of the list. Here's the simple list of why:
1. Great location in Tampa: 20 mins from the airport, right next to the on-ramps for east/west travel, 15 mins to Busch Gardens, gas station next door.
2. Good, consistent breakfast day-to-day
3. Friendly, pleasant staff
4. Clean linens, comfortable bed
5. Light in the ceiling of the shower (not just the bathroom but the shower itself). Nice touch I thought.
6. For Club Carlson members: free snack-filled gift at check-in, free room upgrade
This will be my go-to hotel in Tampa for some time. You can feel good about making a reservation here and expecting your stay to be pleasant.
