The lady at check in was very nice...started walking to my room...kind of dirty, old...elevator smells bad.....I was too tired to even care....went inside the room, carpet was terribly dirty, stinky! just couldnt handle it....the room doesnt look too bad but there is a strong, bad smell...

I've stayed at this Hotel many atime .Great Staff and a Nice Location next to Busch Gardens. Very nice Breakfast and if you don't make to Summer Nights you can always get a room facing the Park. You will be able to hear the music and see the fireworks. Will definitly go back to location

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2012

After reading all other reviews, I was really apprehensive about staying. We were flying in very late and were looking for a place to "crash" before we spent the day at Busch Gardens Tampa and then that night before we left for the coast. Staff was very nice and helpful. Even though the carpet was dirty, the bed was clean and comfortable and the tv worked well. The bathroom was clean. We literally were RIGHT ACROSS THE STREET form Busch Gardens, but the entrance to the park is around the corner- 1 mile walk from our room to the park entrance. Since it was just my husband and me, we chose to walk around the corner to go in- saving the parking fee and hassle of parking and then walking anyway, and it really wasn't a big deal, although if you had little kids, you might not want to do that. The breakfast was ordinary continental- a couple of cereals, milk, juice, breads and bagels for toast, make your own waffles (which my husband loved), hard boiled eggs, yogurts. It wasn't over the top, but for what we paid to stay, it couldn't have been any easier. Overall, if we were doing BG again and not spending a lot of time in the room, we would definitely stay there. Also, there were many fast food places very close, so it would be convenient for quick eating.
