Stayed here the weekend of August 7th 2009.
On a whole this is a pretty nice hotel. The grounds are well kept up, the pool area is really nice and the pool is heated. There is also a fitness center and a buisness center with computers and a printer if you need it. Location wise it's about a 15 minute drive to ybor city and around 25 minutes to busch gardens. The rooms were clean though the bathrooms were a little small and the sink was in the bathroom which can be inconvenient. There was also no fridge and there was only a shower, no tub. The beds weren't great but weren't bad either. There is a flat screen tv which gets hbo.
The staff were all very friendly and helpful except for when we called to get directions to the hotel. The ones they gave us actually got us more lost if thats possible. My only complaint was the prices for extras. The breakfast buffet was 12 bucks and was pretty basic and the bar charged $5.35 for a bud light which is absurd and with no fridge in the rooms, it makes drinking at the hotel a little more difficult.
All in all a quality establishment
