Our night in this hotel was very relaxing and enjoyable. The mattress was great for my bad back. The breakfast was very good there was a variety of food for all tastes. The staff was friendly and helpful to recommend restaurants. A nice hotel and when we are around Tampa we will stay there again.

We stayed here as part of a Busch Gardens package and couldn't be happier. The room was immaculate every day, staff were friendly and courteous and the hotel was quiet at night. The breakfast was a nice plus and included danish, toast, a pancake machine, yogurt, fruit, etc. We also appreciated the ice cream at night. Convenient to the park...

I chose at this particular hotel based upon the proximity to family that we were visiting. After selecting it, I learned that it was very highly rated. Based on that, my expectations relatively high, realizing that it was not a 5 star resort. Upon arrival, I was the only one in the lobby and the front desk clerk did not...

Stayed at this facility while on a hockey tournament for our son. Hotel was clean, rooms were beautiful and even though it was 14 years old it looked new. Breakfast was great and staff was fantastic. Would highly recommend!!!
