"Convenient to Moffitt Cancer Center"
2 of 5 stars Reviewed Jul 25, 2014
mmrock | Sarasota, Florida
We stayed here for 4 nights while having treatments at Moffitt. It was very convenient as it is only two miles away maybe less. There are many food options and a pharmacy near by. The positives were the hot tub and pool area, breakfast and the special Moffitt rate for the room. The negatives were finding two live roaches in the room and we were given the room right next to the construction. They are re-doing one on the entry ways and we were woke up before 8am with banging of equipment and men talking right outside our window. When we went to the front desk we were told they were not suppose to jack hammer until 9am. They did move us but that was the room we found the roaches. They do not have Sunsports so if you are a Rays fan bring your radio. The staff were friendly. I think we will being staying somewhere else next time.

"Cheap and cheerful"

We stayed 1 night 20th July. It was a handy stop off to visit Busch Gardens on an evening when queues are more user friendly. I booked a room with 2 double beds for 3 adults. On the down side the beds were not at all comfortable or flat! It had a general feeling of being a little grubby and the bathroom had a nasty black mould at floor level of the bath. On the plus side the staff were friendly and helpful, there is a pool, continental breakfast was included, the room had air conditioning, free Wi-Fi, TV, coffee machine, and it is very close to Busch Gardens with free firework display every night. And we only paid $66 which equates to 40.

"Awful room, awful smell, awful service."

We reserved a room with 2 queen sized beds for three adults. When we got there the room smelled so badly of smoke we asked to move rooms. None of us smoke why would we want a smoking room when we reserved a job smoking room? We ended up in a room with one bed and a very worn out roll away that was so bad we had to put it on the floor and the office wouldn't give us any other padding and said that there were no more rooms. I will never come back and never stay at another one. It'd the worst hotel I've been to in years.

"We had a nice stay"

We stayed at this hotel for two nights and we had a view of the pool and we were also really close to Busch Gardens. At night we could get to see fireworks across the way at the theme park which was very cool. We didn't have any problems and it was very close to restaurants and the mall was not too far from us. I would stay here again.
