We are and have been members of the Choice Privileges Rewards Program for many years. We have used this program because of the number of nights that...

I read all the reviews and was quite nervous about staying there. But it is the only hotel in Tampa with an indoor pool that I could find. When I called the reservations desk to ensure the indoor pool was open I told the clerk that I had read the reviews and asked questions about the negative comments. He acknowledged...

This is fine if you're going to bush gardens. The beds could have been better though. The pools were heated, nice hot tub and clean. Free breakfest, if you want eggs,bacon. they offer this also. Everything was great, the front desk sign in was pleasant, I'd stay again!!!

The hotel's neighborhood, a commercial area next to I-275, left a lot to be desired. The hotel was fine. We stayed one night while visiting Busch Gardens. The hotel offered a complimentary shuttle, which saved a $10 parking fee. The interior of the hotel was nice and airy. My room faced the atrium with the indoor pool and spa. I...

I'm looking at the other reviews and I must say my experience was quite different from most. I stayed at the Comfort Inn during May doing some apartment hunting. The hotel is close to a friend of mine and was close enough for what I needed to do. I found the room very nice. Actually I wasn't expecting it to...
