Great hotel very close to Busch Gardens

Posted Dec 4, 2017
Cons: The beds were a little small for adults. They were double beds and need queen beds.
Location: Very close to Busch Gardens. You could walk there, but it's like an over a mile walk. But it would save you about $19.00 in parking fees.
Very pleased with the hotel staff and rooms. Very clean rooms and comfortable beds. The only down fall was that there were only 2 bath towels for 4 people to use. Would definitely stay again..

Ok Stay....... Room had an unpleasant odor

Posted Dec 2, 2017
The stay was ok especially for the location I wanted to be in. The room just had a very unpleasant smell. They cold use an upgrade here and there. Other than that it was worth the stay if you wanted to be right by Bush Gardens etc.

hidden charges

Posted Dec 1, 2017
Cons: A full explanation of any "pending" charges to credit card.
We had an unexplained "pending" charge from LaQuenta on our creit card. No explanation given. We paid Expedia in full. We had to make several calls to get an explanation of "pending" charges.

Good location to Busch Gardens, but dated

Posted Nov 7, 2017
Room was clean and secure, staff were helpful. Breakfast was very bland. Good overall value for an overnight stop over in Tampa from Orlando.

it was a nice hotel for the price

Posted Nov 3, 2017
Pros: the staff was friendly and helpful and the breakfast so good.
Cons: outside could use a painting
Location: it was right next to busch gardens and easy access to most locations and highways, this was a business trip
it was a nice hotel, the room was clean, and the staff helpful... desk clerk very welcoming. it was right near busch gardens, so that was convenienent. the inside of the room was updated and clean,, but the outside could use a painting.. but for the most part it was a pleasant stay.
