We only stayed for one night, we stayed here because we thought it's a Hyatt you pay a little more but you get a nice clean room to stay (WRONG!). The carpet was soooo dirty my wife would not walk on it bear footed, I tryed not to. At first I thought maybe this is only this room, but we noticed the lobby was just as bad the following morning. The room was nice, the staff was friendly, if it were clean we would stay again....

Stayed there for 1 night while travelling and visiting Florida and especially Busch Gardens on that occasion.
Hotel was easy to find after reading the map. Free Carpark outside, free wireless internet access in room and free breakfast. That already make a lot.
And the low price too around 122 USD a night.
Room on 6th floor was big enough for 2 of us with luggages, front desk staff was helpful and friendly.
Big flat screen TV very nice. Bed was ok. Bathroom wasn't big.
My complains about this hotel is the room given was not quiet as facing the main street. I would rather ask for one at the back next time.
We've enjoyed our stay.

I thought the staff was very friendly. Val and the ladies where helpful and kind. I didn't see much of the management which was disappointing for it being a Hyatt but the staff really had pleasant attitudes.

The rooms are nice. The bathrooms are small and tired. They definately need some upgrades. Otherwise, I enjoyed my stay.

Stayed here for 2 weeks in October while my wife was undergoing tests at the Morsani/Moffit at University of South Florida.Would certainly recommend for anyone visiting USF Health establishments or Busch Gardens.It`s very close to both and much closer than other hotels recommended by USF .
The hotel is modern and quite large.Check in and check out were efficient.Staff were friendly without being cloying and false. The room was large and bright with a sitting area separate from the bed area(same room but divided off) and the bed was large and comfortable.The bathroom was a decent size and complimentary toiletries adequate.Plenty of towels provided.The room was clean.
There was a large plasma TV with a reasonable number of channels.
There was a room safe and coffee making facilities and a small fridge.The A/C was a bit noisy but the window opened so that was fine.
The complimentary continental style breakfast was good with a variety of cereals,fruit and pastries as well as tea and coffee .A hot breakfast was available at additional charge.
The reception was manned 24/7 and snacks could always be purchased there--those snacks extending to some good salads.The bar was also well stocked,though there is no mini-bar in the room.There is however complimentary WiFi internet access in the room.

There is a swimming pool,apparently unheated because it`s cold,very cold--even for a Brit used to cold pools!-and the area around the pool is basic but nice to sit in for an hour on the sunbeds provided.Towels for the pool area are also provided.

There is plenty of free parking in the large car park that surrounds the hotel for its guests

There are numerous eating places only minutes away and a large supermarket and an ok mall.It`s a 5 minute drive to the Morsani and Moffit and I`d definitely stay again.I`ve stayed nearby at other hotels and this is definitely the best and if you can get a good rate on the internet and you want either USF facilities or Busch you`d be hard pressed to get somewhere better for a night or two.

Stayed for one night so we could go back to Busch Gardens. At $89 and free wifi and breakfast a good deal in my opinion. Room has a nice sitting area and big flat screen tv.
Only wish window could open for fresh air but it was screwed shut.

Great hotel, superbly located for Busch gardens. Hotel is clean and modern and looks like it was recently remodelled. Our room ( 313) was large, clean and had all necessary amenities, ( sink , fridge, coffe maker etc) 42" plasma TV was excellent - but remote would not work from either double bed ,so you had to get up and stand in front of it to change channels.

Included breakfast was basic, but excellent quality, 3 juices, fresh melon & grapefruit, toast, cereal, bagels & english muffins, yoghurt etc. Coffee was also excellent.

Staff were very helpful, they could not find our reservation when we checked in, we were tired after 21 hrs travelling, they were very concerned for us but sorted the problem quickly and without drama , I also had a problem making a collect call from my room t o my credit card company - the staff helped me resolve this.

Swimming pool was excellent - kids loved it. I had no problem with the area, car park was excellent, free, roomy and well lit. Definatley recommend this as an alternative to Orlando, Busch gardens was fantastic and we will definatley return.
