We decided to take an impromptu trip to Busch Gardens Tampa and found this hotel on the choice hotels website. It seemed pretty and the price was reasonable $89.99 per night. We arrived around 1:00 am to find out that the front desk computer system was down and they had to manually find us the two rooms we had booked online. After 30 minutes or so we got the first room, as we head up the stairs to the second floor the stair way and second floor hallways had a very strong WEED smell, it seems some of the other guest were partying it up for the entire hotel. Upon arriving at our room we found out that our $89.99 room was ubber small, the beds were dusty, and the desk was dusty it seems that this room had not been cleaned properly. Not only that, but when my husband lifted the toilet seat to use it, the bowl was dirty and covered in pee, yes; you read it right pee. It was disgusting to say the least. After I cleaned myself the toilet bowl, and change to go to bed, we thought the worst had passed. Boy was I wrong… around 5:00 am the hotel electricity went out. How can a Hotel in 2012 not have a generator is beyond me but we were sweating our little selves until 6:30 when the electricity finally came on. By 7 am I was defeated going back to bed was not going to happen so I got up, took a shower and head downstairs to check the breakfast and it was to my horror that I found kids running all over picking everything with their bare hands. It was the worst experience I have ever had with a hotel. My best advice, spend a few dollars more and stay at the Hard Rock Hotel!
