On the other side of Tampa, good pricing

My usual choices were not available and this Travelodge across Busch Gardens save the trip. Noisy customers, and full parking lot most of the time Spacious room, run of the mill services. Staff distant.

Not like the pictures show.....

This hotel was nothing like the pictures! It was in a terrible neighborhood, creepy people lurking around. Musty smell in the room, no air conditioning. no a good experience. We refused to stay there. Still waiting on refund!

Worst stay ever

The hotel is ideally located across the street from Busch Gardens, but the amenities stop there. The room smelled awful, the sheets were dirty, there wasn't any soap, the phone was broken, and when I spoke to the staff, they never came back or resolved my issues. There were a lot of people hanging around outside and the halls smelled like urine. I would NOT recommend this hotel to anyone. You get what you pay for.

Just ok

The hotel itself was all right. We had to be moved several times because the door locks weren't working. There was also children playing and running up and down the hallways as if they lived there and each time an employee walked past they said nothing. Not the friendliest of staff in the front area.
