This location is PERFECT for Busch Gardens but not a good choice if Tampa in general or downtown are the locations you want to be near. It also is not close to the beach, shuttle driver said it would be 40+ minute drive to nearest beach. The hotel has a FREE shuttle to take you anywhere in a 5 mile radius (they will go farther for a fee). Busch Gardens is less than 2 miles away. I gave an average rating, because it is not fancy or elegent...but it is clean, has a good breakfast and cocktail reception, nice outdoor pool, and the shuttle service is a big plus. This area of Tampa appears older, a little more economically depresssed. The area feels very safe,and it is clean. The university is just across the street. Again, if I were coming here for Busch Gardens I would stay here in a heartbeat!
