My wife son and I stayed here for six nights and were very happy with our stay. The management and staff were very friendly. Room was very clean. Breakfast was more than needed. We would most definitely stay here again.

"Just OK"
3 of 5 stars Reviewed Apr 13, 2014
Kay S | Timbuktu, Mali
First off, this hotel is in the straight up ghetto! Yes, there are alot of restaurants, etc nearby, but it's definitely in a sketchy part of town. We were visiting Busch Gardens, and the drive to/from made me uneasy! The staff is excellent and very helpful. The breakfast was average (if you like rubber eggs and fake sausage), but its free so no complaints. The rooms were just ok as far as being updated. The beds and pillows were amazing though!!! There was a micro and fridge which was nice. The tv was a joke, but we werent there to watch it anyway, so no biggie. Had I known all of this, I would've maybe spent a little extra and just got a room next to BG.

"Hard Rock Casino Visit in Tampa"
5 of 5 stars Reviewed Apr 9, 2014
Clean, comfortable hotel. Staff great, rooms large and well appointed. Breakfast great with homemade waffles, continental style but with eggs and sausage as well. Close to Hard Rock Casino(8 mi away). Large common area and our room had a microwave and little refrigerator. Restaurants close bye and easy access.

"Best rest I've had in a hotel ... and more"
5 of 5 stars Reviewed Apr 10, 2014

I don't know if it was the quiet room and location, the good, light-blocked drapes or the comfortable bed with nice pillows, but I had the best rest here that I can ever remember having a hotel room. Breakfast was typical for this class of hotel, but here's where this place stood out. It was crowded, so my wife and I stood up to eat. The manager came right over and asked if he could open the meeting room for us. We also had a problem with our coffeemaker, and it was addressed efficiently and in a friendly manner. We go to Tampa often in March and April to attend Bay Area Renaissance Festival, and this is about 15 minutes away. You can find closer hotels, but you will not find a better one or a better value.
