“Great location, affordable.”
Reviewed 2 May 2014

The hotel was in a convenient location to Busch Gardens and lots of restaurants. The price was good. We were not planning on spending much time in the room. You definitely don't get many bells and whistles. One smaller than normal bottle of shampoo and no conditioner (only for one person) so be sure to bring your own. No frills at all. Bathroom could have been cleaner. Had two double beds, one had a large dip in the middle of the mattress so two people would have been pretty uncomfortable in it. All-in-all, you get what you pay for and if you don't plan on spending a whole lot of time in it you should be fine. Bedding was very clean. They did have breakfast but we did not stay for it as it was too crowded.

I booked two rooms in April 2014 to visit Busch Gardens. Rooms were very clean. Price was right.
Front Desk people were courteous and pleasant. Would definitely stay here again.
Very convenient to Busch Gardens.

This is a great hotel. It is quiet, even though it is on a main street. It is just across the street from USF, and less than a half mile from MOSI. A short drive to Busch Gardens and Adventure Island. Very easy access from the airport and freeways.

Hotel has 4 floors, our room was very comfy, the staff was great. The breakfast area clean and inviting. Pool and hot tub were clean and maintained well. Recommend!

Room Tip: Request upper floors

A very nice and quiet hotel near USF and Busch Gardens and Adventure Island. Staff were excellent and the rooms immaculate. Highly recommend this hotel. Pool and hot tub areas were very clean and well kept. The free breakfast was the traditional fare - the eggo waffle maker and various cold cereals and breads. Clean and nice.

This hotel was clean, room was decorated nicely, and the front desk staff person Brandi was very nice, courteous and helpful. The bed was the only drawback, when you looked at it you could see how it sagged in the middle, and sure enough, it needs to be replaced!
