The staff was awesome! The hotel could use some updating but it is all cosmetic.

I liked that the property was on the USF campus. Real close to Bush Gardens. A mall, several shopping centers, within blocks away. 15-20 minutes away from airport, Buccaneers Stadium. Breakfast was great, evening reception was ok. You can tell property is an older property but still has a standard about itself. Wish there was an indoor pool, jacuzzi.

My room had an odor smelled old. The furniture is old and upholstery made me hesitate to sit on it

Great hotel, it was a pleasure staying with my family of five in this establishment

Some of the finishes in the bathroom were poorly done- painting and dry wall in shower looked rushed.

The property is very outdated. Worst Embassy Suite I ever stayed out.

Beautiful hotel, great breakfast and very comfortable bed! Will stay there again

Excellent all around,breakfast is pretty good too. Very friendly and the room was very nice and comfortable, could of used more shampoo but I also could have asked for more lol

It was a pleasant stay, and the staff were lovely!

We enjoyed our stay. Hotel was very nice and also had a great Continental breakfast and happy hour;)

Nice clean friendly hotel but has older furniture and decor, showing its age a bit. Good value for the money.

I love this hotel because its near every thing, it's clean the stuff are friendly.

We decided to book this hotel merely as it was conveniently located to the sporting venue where our tournament was being held. The staff was professional, but not overly welcoming. The room was comfortable, roomy, and VERY QUIET. The latter being very important to us. The property in general could be "freshened" as it appeared a bit dated. The morning breakfast buffet was well stocked, and included much variety in the food choices. The evening "cocktail reception" was a nice touch after being on the go all day. Overall an adequate choice for a place to stay while in the area.

Great location for Busch Gardens and USF. Great breakfast

Overall good hotel with very good breakfast evening snacks. Room is spacious but bathroom fixtures needs updating. Sofa bed is not comfortable at all. Still good enough for short stay.

Convienient, nice hotel, good staff. Breakfast and happy hour both are above average. Will definitely stay again!

We are happy you like the surroundings of the property, Yes we are a older property. We will be having a face lift starting May of next year. Very few hotels in sunny Florida have a indoor pool.
