Extremely dirty roomPosted Jul 23, 2015
The hotel is dated and dirty. Bathroom had mold and carpets had large stains. We ended leaving early on a two night stay and forfeited one night without a refund. Too dirty to stay with kids.

good hotel close to Busch GardensPosted Jul 17, 2015
Clean hotel with roomy suites. The Curtesy bus is a bonus taking you to Busch Gardens and picking you up. They also take you to any restaurant nearby. Breakfasts not the best but Managers reception with free drink and nachos made up for that

Nice hotel, I would stay here again.Posted Jun 29, 2015
Pros: Shuttles to all my nearby location if needed which included drop off and pick-up. My family loves the breakfast that's included with the stay.
Location: We attended Busch Garden and Adventure Island which was very close, but the drive to Clearwater Beach was about an hour away.
We had a great time, and my daughter really enjoyed the outdoor pool.

Cons: the food preparation left a lot to be desired for the breakfast buffet. the sofa bed mattresses should be replaced they are horrible.
The best part about this hotel was it is literally right down the street from Busch Gardens and Adventure Island. The room was clean and the free breakfast is nice, even though the food leave a little to be desired on taste and preparation, but it's complimentary so you get way you pay for. We got the room with two full size beds and a sleeper sofa. The sofa was very uncomfortable, the mattress was way too thin and my son who is only thirteen could not sleep on it. The second night he didn't even open it he just slept on the couch. The beds were too soft for my taste and the pillows way too soft as well. If soft is what you like then you will be happy. The room came with a small kitchenette which would be handy for an extended stay. The air handler is a tad loud but it doesn't keep you up, after a while it's like a white noise and you fall asleep no problem. The only other drawback was that the hotel now charges for parking which seemed odd seeing as I don't know where else one would park if not at the hotel? My reservation stated parking was included however the hotel did not honor that part of the reservation so beware due to policy changes parking has a fee. In the end it was a convenient place to stay,however I will book elsewhere next time we head to Tampa.

Great deal, close to Busch Garden.Posted Jun 20, 2015
Pros: Comfortable beds with plenty of pillows. A very good breakfast.
Cons: Teach some of the cleaning service personnel to speak English.
Location: 20 mins to down town Tampa, less than 5 mins to Busch Gardens
The Hotel was very pleasing. My wife made the mistake of brewing some coffee that was provided by the hotel. (Cha-ching) 25 smackers. The cleaning service knocked on the door at 9am, when check-out is at 11am. That was pretty ballsie of them.... Otherwise a vary comfortable stay with a tasty breakfast.

Nice hotel with friendly atmosphere.Posted Jun 19, 2015
Pros: The rooms were comfortable and spacious. Great benefit when traveling with toddlers.
Cons: The shower heads are small and they are not situated high enough. So those over 5'9 will have difficulty taking a decent shower.
Location: Great location for family vacation to Busch Garden and Adventure Island. Lots of great restaurants in the general vicinity.
The hotel was very nice and offered a lot of useful services.
