"Nice, clean, great location!"

This is a great hotel. It is quiet, even though it is on a main street. It is just across the street from USF, and less than a half mile from MOSI. A short drive to Busch Gardens and Adventure Island. Very easy access from the airport and freeways. Hotel has 4 floors, our room was very comfy, the staff was great. The breakfast area clean and inviting. Pool and hot tub were clean and maintained well. Recommend!

This hotel was clean, room was decorated nicely, and the front desk staff person Brandi was very nice, courteous and helpful. The bed was the only drawback, when you looked at it you could see how it sagged in the middle, and sure enough, it needs to be replaced!

Close to Busch Gardens and th Florida Aquarium! My children also enjoyed the heated pool. Needs more breakfast options. The rooms were very clean and up to date. Friendly and attentive staff, which is always a plus!

Across the street from USF within a mile of Busch Gardens. Nice large room, comfy beds & pillows. Breakfast was good but ran out of everything by 8:45am. Staff cordial & efficient. We would stay again

Great hotel for the price. Clean and sharp rooms. It's very close to Bush Gardens and across the street from University of South Florida. Great staff, very friendly and professional. The only negatives it's there's only fast food and those chain restaurants in the area.
