The hotel is very close to Bush Gardens but the neighborhood is not the best one. The staff was friendly. The room was comfortable but we were very surprised with how stained was the room carpet. We stayed only one night but otherwise I would ask to be change to another room. The breakfast was okay.

2/10 Poor

Should be refunded
Rude checkin. Room was dirty, carpet filthy, bathroom rusty and moldy. This property was updated some years ago, but in terrible condition. No soap, no dishes or paper goods in mini kitchen area, no plastic bags for trash . Located near Moffitt cancer center… the reason chosen… a run down, dirty facility I paid extra for a suite.

Convenient to local Tampa attractions
Great choice to visit Tampa zoo and Busch Gardens. A leak started through bathroom vent the last night during a storm. I reported it in the morning and maintenance was informed quickly.

8/10 Very good

Nothing fancy, got the job done
It was clean enough. It was comfortable enough. There was no water pressure in the shower. The breakfast was “meh.” The lady at the front desk was awesome but the man was rude. It was your typical 3-Star hotel experience.
