“This hotel is wonderful and should change its name to "HEAVENS GATE"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

What a nice place to stay... We were greated by a warm front desk welcome. The hotel was clean and so was our room. No surprise odors in the hallways or elevators. Very nice breakfast provided and shuttle service to Bush Gardens. I highly recommend this hotel. A+

3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013 via mobile

I stayed in this hotel during a visit to University of South Florida.
The big advantage was that it is near the university.
The overall experience was average.
The rooms are middle in size, clean but with a displeasing smell.
The service was just basic.
The jacuzzi and the gym are really small and the breakfast was really poor.
But still for a university visit I tend to recommend it as staying in the hotel in not the ultimate purpose.

Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts about your stay with us. We take each guest experience as a learning experience and a chance to grow. We are sorry you felt the breakfast was poor. We try to accommodate all different preferences by offering a 45 item hot and cold breakfast including eggs, sausage waffles, multi-grain toast and fresh fruit. We are also sorry you felt the jacuzzi and fitness facility were small. Although your stay was not everything you expected we hope you will give us another chance.

I have used this hotel fairly regularly within the last three years and have always found it very enjoyable with great service, super, super staff and a decent breakfast to start my day. It's proximity to the USF campus, Busch gardens and downtown Tampa make it ideally located for all of my requirements. Will always be my first choice in the area.
