We have stayed at this location (hotel) a number of times during the pas 6 yrs. This time we were not to impressed as the nite staff was not friendly. But the morning staff makes up for it as they are happy and helpful. This location needs some updating....breakfast is a good value.

No shortage of hot water at this place. Spacious room with love seat and comfortable desk. Nice size pool, but no sun after about 3:30pm in mid Nov. Great location to Bush Gardens and USF. Close to 275. Several restaurants, and Winn Dixie close driving distance. Breakfast buffet not much, but good if your in a rush.

I use this hotel as I got to Moffitt Cancer Center once a month, it is convenient and you feel welcome. The breakfast buffet is very good and they keep it refilled, rooms are clean and you always feel welcome.

I enjoyed my stay and would return to this hotel if I travel to the city again. The staff was polite and the rooms were comfortable to relax and enjoy the hospitality. Not to mention that the Jacuzzi top off the entire relaxation of the trip.

The rooms are very nice and spacious. I had a king room which included a nice workstation desk and ergonomic char. Nicely decorated and clean. Breakfast room is sizable and well stocked. The only downside about breakfast was the hard boiled eggs were very difficult to peal...I suspect there were overcooked. Nice hot shower and good water pressure.
