“Busch Gardens Vacation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2013

Got the package deal online for Busch Gardens tickets and buy 2 nights get 1 free at Comfort Suites. The hotel looked nice online and having never been to Tampa, we took a gamble and signed up. We asked for a handicap room and another room to sleep 4. Hector did a great job of helping us get into rooms close to each other. The rooms were great! Clean and big with nice bathrooms and the king-size beds are very comfortable. When we found that the sofa bed was unsuitable for humans, Hector got us moved into a room with 2 queen beds and the kids slept great after that. The breakfast is very good with a nice variety of choices and plenty to eat. Great service, friendly staff, clean and comfortable rooms, good food and free shuttle service to Busch Gardens - a great place to stay. Next time we go to Tampa, we know where we'll be staying!

Room Tip: Do NOT plan on using the sofa bed (hide-a-bed) for anyone - the mattress was uncomfortable for our 7...

What a great hotel!! Conveniently located to the Casino. Property was extremely clean with all of the nice amenities to enjoy while away from home. Booking, checking-in, and checking-out, were
all so convenient. The breakfast included with the stay was top notch. Everything was fresh and several hot choices were available in addition to cereal, fruits, pastries, etc. Would recommend this hotel to anyone. Will now consider this my "home" hotel when in the Tampa area.

We had a great experience at this hotel. From the moment we came in Jahara smiled and welcomed us. She was very helpful and even looked up a restaurant and printed directions for us. Our room was comfortable and the free breakfast wasn't bad. We also loved the heated pool!

Nice hotel! Quiet, clean conveniently located. Close to the Hard Rock hotel/casino and a short jaunt to Plant city for the Strawberry Festival. A nice breakfast. included in the cost of the room. Good service at the front desk. I'd recommend this hotel as a great place to stay!

4-day stay; great hotel, nice ambiance, contemporary.

Pros: IRMA, who oversaw the continental / complimentary breakfast every morning, was hands-down the most helpful, polite, professional, and kind person my husband (Scott) & I had the pleasure of encountering in all our travels, ever. With some physical challenges, carrying things like juice, coffee (etc) can be difficult, and when Irma noticed this one Day 1 - she went out of her way to not only carry these types of things to the table, but she then went out of her way throughout our meal to see if we needed anything (like refills, or if we'd forgot a fork or spoon and so on) she would ensure that we had everything necessary to fully enjoy our meal. She gets an A+++++++ in our book. I hope the hotel knows what they have in her, because when we're in the area again, we would go out of our way to stay at Choice Hotel because of our experience with her.

Negative: We had a multi-day stay, and in spite of telling the front desk --- each day we found ourselves locked out of our room and we had to go downstairs and get our room rekeyed. Also, the room cleaning staff wasn't as thorough as they could have been, and there was a couple days where we had to ask for fresh towels & linens for the bed.

All in all though --- an A/A- experience.

Husband and I selected this property because it was not $400 a night like the Hard Rock. I am SO glad we stayed here! New property conveniently located directly across the street from the fairgrounds and a five minute drive to the Hard Rock Casino Hotel. Upon check in, we were warmly welcomed and provided information about the complimentary breakfast and shuttle and a $20 free play voucher for the casino. Shuttle was on time to and from the casino. We really disliked the casino. You can see my comments on that place in a separate review. Back to this wonderful property...Our room was very comfortable and decorated with bright colors. Very nice. Drink and snack vending area on the 1st floor. Outdoor pool (too chilly for us to take a dip). Our room was near the elevator but we didn't have any noise issues. Convenience store within walking distance. The staff were wonderful here! You won't regret staying here!

I booked this hotel last minute so we could go to the Hard Rock Casino while we were in town. The price was excellent for the suite we booked. The beds were comfortable, even the sofa bed. The room was very spacious as well as the bathroom. I would definitely recommend this to my friends and family and would stay there again.
