great time

This has to be one of the best hotel experiences I have ever had. The rooms were clean and inviting, and the complimentary drinks at night were always a plus. The breakfast with made to order omelettes was the best I have had! The staff was courteous and friendly at every turn. Outstanding!

USF

We visited from Washington state and had a granddaughter playing a soccer match on campus. So, the location was perfect for us. The complimentary breakfast was top notch. There were no issues with anything and several of the staff went above and beyond expectations.

Tampa Experience

Not a good experience at all. The Wi-Fi didn't work in the room and when we call the front desk they weren't much help. Food was on the floor in the hallway from the Saturday we checked in until the Monday we left. Just imagine every time you leave your room you had to look at the nasty rug in the hallway. Also, the cleanliness of the room could have been better. Noisy neighbors children kept running and knocking on doors playing games. Also, had a neighbor that continued to slam doors throughout our stay.

Great place to stay while visiting a friend in Tampa!

I stayed here a year ago and was real pleased with the hotel, so when I planned to come back this year, it is the only place I considered to stay. Since it is so close to my Friend, it makes it very convenient for me. The hotel is beautiful inside with the gardens, water fall, etc. The morning breakfast is great and another reason I chose to stay here. So nice to eat before I go out for the day.
