Baymont Inn & Suites Tampa Near Busch Gardens

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Toilet didn't flush in my room and in the lobby. My shower had the hot and cold water backwards.

We were worried about the area but the hotel was very secure and the room was large and very comfortable.

Check in was easy as we had a reservation a reservation ahead. Great breakfast in morning with ample supply's.

We enjoyed our stay, the shuttle was very conveinient

The hotel is going through renovations, but the room hadn't been upgraded yet. The location is close to Busch gardens, and the free shuttle was very convenient. Nice feature.

We loved the location of the hotel. However, the hotel is in the process of updating all the rooms. Both rooms on either side of us were being remodeled. Our room had old carpet and it smelled musty. The pull out sofa was in bad shape and we had to request a new mattress. I think this hotel will be a great place to stay once they finish the remodel. The breakfast had a good selection of foods. The room was definitely not $150/night room at this point. It was closer to $75/night.

WiFi doesn't work, they have roaches in the rooms. The rooms are dirty. All the non smoking rooms smelled really bad. No difference between a smoking or non smoking room. It's not a safe area either.

The room was nice although the couch looked like a porn video was shot there...

THE HOTEL NOT BAD BUT NEED AN UPDATE TO EVERY THING IN THE ROOMS. The room was clean from any dust .but the carpet has too much stain.the wall need to be paint . Otherwise everything else is good the staff are fabulous and nice.

Very smelly and musty - hard to stay in the room for long periods of time

Good for what we needed.-- a quick stopover while on a long distance trip

The hotel was ok. The breakfast was fine. If you need to stay for few days this hotel is good.

I was coming to Tampa to see a concert but decided to stay an extra day to go to Busch Gardens. This hotel was RIGHT by it...you can walk to it. It also had great amentities like a refrig and microwave all in a little sitting area with a TV. It felt like a small studio apartment which was nice. Breakfast was good with both hot and cold items and the staff were very nice and helpful. My only two complaints would be the off and on WiFi as I was able to get it in my room at times but the one night I had free I had to go sit out by the pool as I'd lose it as soon as I came into the room (and another customer was out sitting thre for the same reason). The other thing was it smelled strongly of cleaning materials both days I came into my room. However, once in, I'd not notice it so overall, if I decided to come back (as I ended up NOT going to Busch Gardens and instead went to see the 'stars' of Dolphin Tail movies) I'd consider staying again.

Good value and location. The balcony light was too bright to sleep. It would be better if it had a shuttle to and from the hard rock hotel.

The staff was nice, the door to my first room didn't work so I had to go back to get the keys re done to work. Then had to go to the front again to find out my original room door was broken. Getting another room. Overall stay though was great, will say like the room layouts.

This Hotel is Very Close to Busch Gardens. They have a Nice Pool. This was our 3rd Year in a row staying at this hotel and we Love it. Too bad the Bar next to the pool wasn't open this year.

It was a nice place to stay. We had a room with a balcony, if you want to call it that. There weren't any chairs out there to side. But was good if you're a smoker. The wed site stated they had a sports bar and it was closed and the employee working said it hasn't been open it some time. There was some kind of convention going on, which is no fault of the hotel but there was a lot of loud noises and hollowing going on at all hours of the night. So someone was there to party! lol We did see our curtains ever had blood or chocolate on them. We weren't sure if someone had been murdered or had a chocolate fight. All in all it was a place to stay but not for the price just to lay our heads down for the night.

Stayed a full week they didn't ask if I was rebooking and gave my room away

I wasn't happen with the fact they never wanted to come and clean my rooms. Plus there are pimps walking around the hotel in the late hours

The hotel location is convenient for where I need to go during this quick trip. The hotel room is clean, quiet and a good value. The staffs are generally very friendly and helpful.
