We only stopped here for one night after flying into Tampa International Airport. The staff were pleasant, friendly and helpful. The room was clean comfortable and just what we wanted after a long flight. Continental breakfast was provided which included the usual things. There was only one toaster so there was a bit of a wait other than that everything else was fine.
The location is perfect for a visit to Busch Gardens, a 5 minute drive.
It was very good value for money.

The room looked and felt great... until we changed the thermostat from 65 to 72. We woke up early with headaches and difficulty breathing due to the mold or mildew smell in the carpet. The cold setting had covered it up.

First, the room was dirty , humidly smelly , no water in the bathroom faucet , the room only have Full beds " no Queen beds" and the A/C never goes down of 71 degree.
Was the horrible night of my life, and never pay attention to you. I reported all this and never receive any sorry about it.
I don't recommend this hotel .
