Reviewed August 15, 2013 via mobile

We stayed here for 2 nights in July. Our reason for staying was to visit Busch gardens and adventure island. It's 10 min drive to these locations from the hotel. And we used a courtesy bus to and from the hotel which was great.
The reception staff were extremely helpful and friendly.
The room was very large and clean. The pool was quite small. Elevators could be improved. They were v slow and old looking!
Buffet breakfast in the morning was excellent and complimentary paper was a nice touch.
Overall I would recommend this hotel especially if you are going to the theme parks.

This happened to be chosen for me by a client and I was pleasantly surprised. This hotel has everything that a business traveler will need and seems to have taken the model of the Courtyard Marriott and done it even better. Rooms are mini-suites and are modern and well appointed. Nice touch is full bathroom amenities including tooth paste. The staff was excellent upon check in and always tended to the needs of the guests. There is food on site and lots of restaurants within walking distance to the shopping centers nearby. This is an excellent choice for families or people traveling on vacations as well.

If you're visiting Busch Gardens, stay here. Super friendly staff. Rooms are very spacious and a good mix of modern updates in an older room. Everything very clean throughout. Nice pool to enjoy. Shuttle service to Bush Gardens or surrounding area was very reliable.. just book ahead as soon as you check in. A pleasant breakfast each morning. We did notice breakfast crowd is much busier on a weekend then it was during a weekday. I would recommend. Booked through Hotwire for a good price.

Stayed one night. Room was quiet even next to elevator breakfast was busy and free. Nothing out if ordinary. At check in girl was rude at first asking my husband if his name was tommy Bahama because he has on that brand of shirt. She was definitely knocking it and we just let it go figuring her ignorance was just part of who she was. Carpet in room was spotted. All in all it was a place to stay. We got a good night sleep and went on our way.

The hotel is very near from Busch Gardens, but 3 miles from the entrance, they offer a free shuttle, but you have to book in advance and the lovely driver didn't pick us up at adventure island, no appologies, and if that wasn't enough when we were almost at the hotel she made a loop to pick up some other clients.
The room is huge we two double beds and a sofabed, with fridge and sink. Breakfast was very crowded but with constant refilling, they have a very polivalent staff, you see the same person doing many differrent things from selling tickets to brewing coffee.

I booked this hotel the week of June 22-25 with my family my youngest daughter and sister slept on the sleeper sofa and returned home with red bites all of there body, after a Dr. visit it was determined to be bed bugs, I contacted the GM and he advised me that a investigation would be done an he assured me that this kind of situation wouldn't be taken likely, however after the investigation came back per the GM he stated that the room was bed bug free but that still doesn't clarify how my daughter and sister ended up with the bites, the hotel was the ONLY place where we slept the entire trip.... good luck.

I booked this hotel via the Busch Gardens web site as a package to attend Busch Gardens and Adventure Island, it was a great price. I wasn't sure of the overall area of Tampa so I was kind of nervous due to not knowing exactly the location of the hotel. So I will point out a few things...

* Hotel is in a great area i.e. close to restaurants and the parks
* The hotel staff are wonderful, always helpful with smiles
* Shuttle service (just remember to reserve your times upon checking-in)
* Rooms are huge, I traveled with husband and two kids 11 & 14 we had a double room with pull-out sofa.
* Breakfast was very good (the omelets were delicious)
* Pool was nice size and clean

Overall this hotel was excellent if you are visiting Busch Gardens you can not beat the shuttle service, free breakfast, and the University is near by also. We will definitely stay here when we visit again.
