Great location, close to USF, VAMC, Moffitt Cancer Center, and Busch Gardens. Among the friendliest and most responsive hotel staff I have ever encountered. Decent amenities. Good place for a mid- to long-term stay. Great happy hour.

You call them when you ready to go somewhere (for us Buxch Gardens) and they were very prompt. The hotel wasn't very busy when we were there so i don't know how prompt it...

Originally booked for the free shuttle to Busch Gardens and we were pleased with our previous stay at an Embassy Suite Hotel. The furnishings could use some updating but overall it was neat and clean. This is a smaller facility and seems to cater to smaller events and meetings. The staff makes this a wonderful place to stay. I really...

The hotel is in a great location and has amenities to match. The service staff is the best I have ever seen; they are accommodating, friendly, and extremely helpful. Rather you are on business or leisure, this hotel has something for everyone.

this hotel is spotlessly clean, and with a friendly helpful staff. Located on the South Fl. University campus. Very near restaurants and entertainment. I would definably stay here in a second. Guy in the front office is prompt to address all possible problems!

Stayed here for a night after visiting Busch Gardens. Great location, and the lobby is nice, but the room was worn and dated. Breakfast was as expected and service was great. Take advantage of shuttle for Busch Gardens.

The hotel was a mile from Busch Gardens where we went the next day. Free shuttle service saved us $20.00 in parking at the amusement park. Overall the hotel was convenient to there and also Ybor City. Accommodations were excellent. Staff very friendly. Would recommend this.
