The General Manager checked us in and he was great, very funny and helpful with resturants in the area. We only stayed one night since we were only in Tampa for Busch Gardens. This was the first time we have ever stayed in Tampa, normally we come for busch gardens the drive back to Orlando. The hotel was very clean and comfortable. The breakfast bar in the morning was great as well, it had lots to choose from. I would stay here again, and it's great that it's just around the corner from the park.

This was our first time here and we were incredibly satisfied with this hotel. We wanted a hotel as close to Busch Gardens as possible and this hotel was maybe 5 minutes from the Busch Gardens parking lot. When we arrived at the hotel after a long and hot day at Busch Gardens, my husband went in to check us in (we has reserved our room the week before). The desk agent said he had us down for 2 twin beds. Well, we are a family of 4 and had definitely not reserved that type of room. He immediately apologized and upgraded us to a 2 king bed room. We were even given a welcome snack gift bag upon our arrival! We also needed a pack-n-play and it was delivered promptly to our room. FYI, if you need a sheet for the pack-n-play, ask for a twin sheet. The sheet that comes with the pack-n-play does not fit. The beds were quite comfortable and the breakfast was full of hot foods (scrambled eggs, biscuits and gravy, waffles, sausage) and other foods (hard-boiled eggs, hummus, pastries, large selection of cereals, fruit, etc.). We were full and happy when we left! The next time we come to Busch Gardens, we will definitely stay again :)

The service was wonderful. The room was very nice, I wish we had been there more time to enjoy it. The location was great, not far from the expressway, restaurants & the USF Sun Dome where we attended a concert. The room was also spacious. I was disappointed with the mattress and pillows. They weren't comfortable. For the price I paid I think the pillows and mattress could have been more comfortable. I've paid less and gotten better elsewhere. The cable kept losing the signal, I couldn't watch TV in the bedroom. The coffee was weak, not good at all.

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. We greatly appreciate all your comments. We try to learn from every guest experience to do the best we can do. We thank for your comments about our staff. Every employee here is hand pick and personally trained. We are glad you found the location to be conveniently located across the street from USF and just down the street from Busch Gardens and several restaurants. It is also pleasant to see that you found the rooms spacious, however we apologize that the pillows and mattress were not exactly what you expected. We use sealy posturepedic pillow top matresses and replace the matresses regularly. We are also sorry you felt the TV signal was not very strong. Unfortunately, sometimes weather conditions can sometimes cause the satellite to loose signal. Whenever you have an issue during your stay please let the front desk know to give us a chance to rectify the issue and make your stay a stellar one. Again, thank you for your review and we hope you will give us another try and see why we rank #5 among all Tampa hotels.

We where in Tampa for my husbands open heart surgery. The staff eas excellent and very caring. I can't say enough about the car service to the hospital I didn't have to worry about anything but my husband. The breakfast in the morning was great and being able to get food at the hotel at night was great. I would recommend this hotel. oh and my husband is doing great.
