We stayed three nights. The hotel staff is very courteous. The room was clean. However the toilet did not worked properly. The issue was notified but not corrected. This hotel is literally behind Busch gardens. Plenty of restaurants walking distance to include red lobster and olive gardens. Also McDonald's and IHOP are one block away.

In addition, it is conventionally located near popular stores & restaurants. The room & bathroom were large & the bed was very comfortable. There was...

Everything was great in a short stay. The breakfast was average at best. There was noise from the airport. The shuttle from the airport was overloaded but helpful. A very busy place and food places were near. The Interstate was near.

The hotel looks good and suites too, problem is distribution of areas like lobby, breakfast service, pool, and so on. Besides that we have some noisy people next room at late hours. I see many babies and children around the place probably because is nearby Busch Gardens, in our case we needed it closest place to USF. For the price...

This Inn was clean and convenient to Tampa's Busch Gardens. Could use a safe, refrigerator and chair height toilets, and heavier paper products at breakfast, but otherwise, no complaints. I would recommend this Inn for either vacation or business.
