This was our second time we stayed at this hotel. The first time was back in March for a Bush Garden visit. We really enjoyed our first stay, so we booked it again just this past weekend to see the Zoominations Chinese Lantern Festival at Lowry Park. The hotel is conveniently located close to Bush Garden, and a 10 minutes...

Staff was very friendly. Room was nice, beds comfortable. BUT the bathroom door would not close unless you lifted up on the knob and pushed it with your knee. Then you had to pull really hard to open it. Breakfast was good. Located very close to USF Botanical Gardens, and Busch Gardens. Convenient for getting cross bay to St Petersburg.

The 1st room they gave us had an awful smell. The 2nd room was ok. The beds were not very comfortable as they sagged, but were ok. The restaurant served free breakfast for guests and was barely edible. The property itself was clean and the staff was excellent. We used a coupon from a travel book which saved us money...

The hotel has a great location, easy to get to parks, shopping and dinng. The rooms were nice, nothing fancy. We had a super late check-in and that has been a big problem for us in the past at other hotels, but Paul made arrangements for us and it went very smooth. The staff was super friendly and helpful.

Checked in and stayed for one night. Front desk was busy but 2 person staff was moving the line fast. Hotel was packed with a lot of young military kids in uniform, maybe an ROTC graduation. The place is really big we and we didn't know it, so, we had to walk pretty far to our room. When you check...

This hotel seems to have lost the will to live. Ideally located for Bush Gardens the rooms are a good size but vey dated. The passages to the room are filthy with garbage left by the residents not being cleaned. In order to get to out room we had to walk through crowds of smokers congregating outside of the rooms....
