We stayed here in preparation for taking a cruise. The room was fine, the staff was great. The ability to park and leave our car here and get at ride to and from the cruise ship pier as well as the casino.....is why I wanted to write this review. It was an excellent service.

Very clean and welcoming. The registration staff was very friendly, and helpful in getting our bearings to locate restaurants nearby. The entrance is a bit tricky, but additional signage, once you leave the highway, guides you to the main entrance.

Due to airline flight scheduling, we arrived 4 days early in Tampa and basically had 4 days to cost-effectively spend in that area. We did not want to spend a lot of money on accommodations, but did want good value...

We played golf in the area and stayed one night at this hotel. Nice overall with a good free breakfast. Very clean. Only other comment is on thr quality of the bed, which was not great. I slept well anyway and shot a low golf score the next day!!
