This property was ok. As a gold member they told me they were going to upgrade me to a higher floor. The hotel only had 5 floors, and the room type was the same.

Stayed here as we wanted a hotel that was convenient for an NFL Game at Raymond James Stadium and also Universal Studios the following day. Staff were very helpful and friendly and offered advice on places to eat. Good breakfast with lots of choice. Loved the cookies that were always available in the lobby.

This hotel is nice and clean. There is warm cookies always available in the lobby. They have a good warm breakfast which changes every morning. The pool is not that great though. It is small and doesn't look very inviting. The rooms are clean and nice. Very comfortable.

This was a great place to break our journey. Room large and perfectly clean. Plenty of towels in pretty formations! Coffee and fresh cookies available in the lobby were a treat too! Enjoyed the pool in the evening-extra pool towels was a nice addition. Breakfast was adequate. Staff friendly and helpful.
