Not much to review because we arrived in the evening and checked out early the next morning. Our room was clean and quiet and check in and check out was smooth. The pool looked inviting and would have used it if our stay was longer. I especially liked being able to buy discounted Busch Gardens tickets at the front desk....

We had a Awesome time here. We usually stay in Wyndham's. However, we got this trip through a package deal with the City Pass. Our kids loved it! Our waitresses for Breakfast were so sweet. We loved Judy and Teri! Make sure to tip your waitress! 💕

Shuttle will strand you at the theme parks. The restaurant takes almost 2 hours to have breakfast because service is so slow. No towels at pool, no towels at desk. Staff doesn't care. I would recommend staying elsewhere.

Awesome staff. Super friendly and helpful on our arrival....0900hrs. Pre-registered us and we were on our way. Convenient Location. About 1 mile from Busch Gardens entrance, less than 10 miles from downtown Tampa. Clean, well appointed property. Will stay here again if in Tampa!!

Ericia at the Front Desk was fantastic and a huge help to me. We arrived late in the evening after learning that we had booked the wrong Holiday Inn property. Ericia found us a room and went through hoops to honor the original booking rate. Thank you, Ericia, for great customer service!

Always Friendly, Convenient & Clean. We usually chose a breakfast included property, but now this is our go-to hotel for the area. Audrey not only does a fantastic job checking you in to the best room to suit your needs, she is a very skilled concierge I only wish I could've posted this review sooner.!
