The experience was 5 stars! From the super fun and friendly staff to the delicious breakfast and ice cream social. I booked this hotel with a Busch Gardens vacation package and I would definitely stay here again. The location is fantastic with lots of dining, shopping and even a movie theater across the street.

If ever there was a vacation from HELL, this one started out as it. After months of planning and thousands of dollars to stay at Disney, we ended up in Tampa 3 nights into our planned 8 night Disney stay.
