Pros: I didn't like anything at all about this hotel.
Cons: Everything needs to be improved. Starting with the ac units, the smell of the rooms, cracked bathroom floor, dirty towels...
The air conditioner was not working properly and the units are very old. I reserved a non-smoking room, but the room smelled terrible. I made a reservation for 3 nights, went out the first day and housekeeping took all my belongings. I had to check out and leave to another hotel. I ended up at the Ramada, which was close by and my experience there was great. I don't recommend that Days in at all. Apparently lots of people go through the same experience since I heard the comments from near by hotels when I was looking for another place to stay.

definitely an older hotel

Posted Jul 19, 2014
Pros: Close to USF
Cons: Plumbing. Electrical
Location: Busch Gardens real close. USF Tampa
Definitely an older hotel. Drain in sink was very slow. Faucet for shower had to wiggle to get to turn to hot. TV remote was broken. In need of upgrades soon.

You get what you pay for!

Non smoking rooms smelll like smoke! Everything was dirty even the towels. The entire hotel stay was uncomfortable and we were worried about roaches. The maid came to clean and leave new towels but the room was still dirty and not up to standard. There were holes under the sink and on the walls. I do not recommend anyone to stay here. It is close to Busch Gardens but your family will not enjoy this hotel. On a positive note the water temperature gets very hot for a steamy shower. A hot shower is not worth the stay. Spend your money wisely and choose a better hotel. This rating is very realistic coming from a college students perspective.

I will not recommend this hotels.

Posted Jul 2, 2014
Thie conditions, surroundings and atmosphere was by far the most horrible hotel i have ever seen. When I checked in the premises and the environment was not welcoming. After checking in I went to look at the room and turned around and left and ended up at a different hotel. It smelled so bad that I had to leave.

The only good is close to the parks

Posted Jun 4, 2014
The facilities are in bad conditions. The only good about the hotel is close to busch garden and adventure island.

Kinda like living in the slums

Posted May 28, 2014
Carpets are filthy, couldn't step out of bed without putting my sandals on first. Holes in the walls, some have aluminum foil shoved in them. Trash behind the toilet. Smoke detector was covering a hole in the wall. Coffee pot had no filter basket to put the filter in. The only thing this room had that was decent was the shower looked like it had recently been re tiled.
