Most everything on my stay was fine except all the banging from the cleaning staff at 6 in the morning. The breakfast was okay for a hotel meal. They could stand to upgrade the pillows and mattresses.

The location of this hotel is great. Busch Garden 5 minutes away, There is an Olive Garden next door, Red Lobster and a few fast food restaurants. My only complaint was no towels in the room and the maid said she would bring them right away. We went out for about 2 hours and I had to go to the desk to get some. I wasn't the only person at the front desk looking for towels.

I have stayed in several of the budget hotels in this area and in some more expensive ones. This was the best choice, new and clean. Definitely would recommend it. A very comfortable and pleasant stay.

Nothing to say but Awesome! We left the Knights Inn down the road after seeing the room and arrived here to friendly faces, great service, spacious room with comfy clean sheets, and shuttle service to the casino. Great stay!

Clean hotel and reasonable breakfast included in the price.
Good location for theme park and sights in and around Tampa.
Located not far from main express way so easy to get to And from.
Went to a Buddhist temple near by for Sunday market and food that was interesting and reflects a different culture within the USA.

Room Tip: Good hotel located next to a Red Lobster restaurant and Italian, both very good. Easy to get onto th...

Stayed here for 2 nights while we visited busch gardens and was very impressed.
Rooms very spacious and clean with a good shower.
Breakfast was a typical free affair but ok.
Lots of different places to eat nearby including the Olive Garden which was right next door.
Busch gardens is over the road but too far to work so drove round the corner which took a few mins.
Would defiantly stay here again..
