This hotel is virtually hidden but is an excellent place to stay. The room was clean and quite. we had work to do in Wesley and Tampa and this was centrally located to both. Also centrally located to the Florida Medical Hospitals we need to go. The staff was excellent too.

Honestly, this is a really nice Holiday Inn Express...but its a Holiday Inn Express. In fact, the nicest that I've stayed at, good staff, clean, safe, but it's hard to give it 5 stars. If you're driving down I-75 or just need a bed in the area for the night, it's perfect.Not sure how it's listed as one of the...

Having stayed her before, we were happy and eager to stay a second time. It's still a GREAT place to stay. From the front desk staff to all of the service personnel, this hotel is a gem.

If you are looking for somewhere to stay in Tampa but do not want inner city troubles and prices, this is a great place to consider. The reception staff was always so friendly and really wanted you to have a good experience at the hotel. The continental breakfast each morning was pretty standard but they put in more effort to...

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...
