Minutes from Busch Gardens - was easy to drop off my teenagers and pick them up at closing time at the front entrance.... was very surprised - little traffic there because the parking lot itself is totally separate. Free Breakfast was great - waffles, hard boiled eggs, yogurt, cereals, etc etc! Plenty of free parking and nearby eateries- near MOSI and I75 - felt safe - wifi just fine - room comfortable - besides a little lower price, what more could you ask??

Very nice hotel especially if you are going to go to Busch Gardens. Pets are allowed and the rooms are huge as too are the bathrooms. Easy access and very close to I-75. You will be right across from University of South Florida (USF).

"Not good.."
2 of 5 stars Reviewed Aug 19, 2014
Eunjung K | Buena Park, California
I might have expected too much.. But I had a homesick during my stay in this hotel. The room did not block noises from the hallway even though my room was pretty far from the elevators and I could even hear others using bathroom. Also, I found some corners and areas where they were not cleaned (someone's tiny hair was on the the bathroom door). Air conditioning was poor and loud that I couldn't fall asleep because of the noises, almost sounded like a person snoring. The room was very humid and there was no fan or a dehumidifier to remove the extreme humidity. Other than these, the hotel was pretty good with breakfast and had a nice pool.
