The hotel is very good and the staff is helpful and well trained. The room was clean and had all it needs: microwave, small refrigerator and a coffee maker. The breakfast is ok and well served. The location is excelent if you are visiting Busch Gardens.

Was traveling with some friends to Howl O Scream, and looking for a convenient and affordable place to stay. Although this seemed to be an older property, I found it to be in good condition. The rooms, in particular the bathroom was somewhat small, however it was nice to have a stand up shower in it. The carpeting, bed linens...

Dear Guest, I am pleased to hear that you were happy with your stay. I hope you had fun at Howl O Scream, I also went to Howl O Scream and realized that I am a HUGE CHICKEN! I could only experience 1 haunted house before my voice was gone from screaming. Funny thing is my eyes were closed the...

Front office staff very nice. Location is in a decent location if you are looking to be in between USF and other attractions. No exterior rooms, which adds to the level of security and comfort. Interior is clean and presentable.

I had no wifi all week and nobody did anything to help other than reset it once- which did not help. The breakfast is pretty bad but at least I got a couple of bowls of cereal a few times. The traffic is pretty heavy around that part of town. Housecleaning skipped my room twice- but on one of the...

We just wanted a clean, safe place for a quiet nights sleep...and we found it here. Although we did not have the free breakfast, it did look good and many were enjoying it. Our room was clean and nicely furnished. Great value for the price. It is now time for management to refresh the property- repaint and attend to the...

Like others say, you get what you pay for. Hotel staff is friendly. Free breakfast was okay. My only complaint was the strong hotel odor (like an older place might smell) and the thin walls. I have never experienced or complained of that issue before. But I could hear everything from our neighbors and their kids. However it was located...

Slopping paint on the walls and putting new bedding on a bed is not all it takes to improve a hotel, but it seems that is all they did to upgrade this place. The positives: the bed was clean. The negatives: the carpet in the hotel hallways & elevator and in the rooms was filthy, the luggage carriers are so...
