My husband, son and I stayed at this hotel at the end of June 2011 for 2 nights for a visit to Busch Gardens. The hotel was very clean, quiet and good location. The staff was pleasant. One thing I was upset about is that their website states they have a shuttle to Busch Gardens but it does not mention...

Thank you for your review. I will certainly consider posting shuttle times again on our website. At one time, shuttle hours were posted however, some third party sites were listing them incorrectly, and guests were misinformed. In regard to the refrigerator, it sounds like the compressor was turning on/off. It is possible that it could be going out. We will...

Initially I made reservations at a neighboring hotel. Unfortunately upon my arrival I found the accommodations lacking. I decided to inquire with Holiday Inn Express for available accommodations and was warmly greeted by their front desk. Eric said it would be no problem accommodating my stay and even gave me a tour of the suite I requested prior to my...

Thank you for taking time to complete a review. The Webster's Dictionary defines hospitality as hospitable treatmant or reception. The staff of this hotel understands what guests expect. We strive everyday to deliver hospitality service. We hope to see you soon!

We stay at this hotel every year when we go to Busch Gardens for the day. Very nice hotel, clean, and hospitable staff. Free continental breakfast is a bonus! Only a short drive to Busch Gardens. I wouldn't bother staying anywhere else when in the area. Good value for money every time I have stayed here.

We stayed for a night when this hotel was still a La Quinta. It was tricky finding the hotel at night without sat nav - it is best to reach it via the western entrance to Telecom drive as we got lost coming in from the first turning off the freeway! There was a frendly welcome at reception and we...

This hotel is close to everything in Tampa, but not too close. Everything was great and we will definitely stay there again. It was very quiet at night, which was great, too. They have a breakfast buffet, but we went over to a little diner next door, which wasn't bad. We also had a microwave, coffee maker, and fridge in...

My Golden Retriever is having to undergo chemotherapy in Tampa, so I needed a good, clean, and safe hotel to stay at before driving home the next day.

This hotel motivated me to register on tripadvisor. My wife and I, our two kids, and her mom came down to visit my dad in the Melbourne area, but the six of us (hence the 12 thumbs) took a trip over to the gulf coast for two days and a night. I picked this hotel based on the positive reviews...
