Poor breakfast. Food was over cooked on the buffet dried out and cold. The value of the hotel was not worth it for the money. Would not go back unless no other hotels are available. Been there before and the breakfast was the same POOR

This Embassy Suites is a great place to stay. Convenient to the interstate and lots of restaurants. They have a nice happy hour and a great breakfast. Have stayed here many times. As a single female traveling, I find it to be safe. It also has beautiful landscaping.

I have stayed at The Embassy Suites Hotel near UVC in Tampa several times and love it. The rooms are fantastic, with plenty of space and a refrigerator and microwave. The staff is friendly, courteous, and helpful. The best point is the complementary brea bar, which includes made-to-order omelettes.

My trade association books meeting at this venue several times a year. Of 3 different venues this is my favorite. Facilities are top notch and the staff is extremely friendly, helpful and efficient. The rooms are clean and very comfortable. The evening reception is nice but the complimentary breakfast is always excellent. I am looking forward to another stay later...

Booked a room this past weekend for a family fun weekend and Front Desk great staff rooms were very nice and cozy. Breakfast in morning was good the view inside was beautiful. The only thing was the snack shop the pricing i think is way to much for a 20oz soda $4 i think that is just a bit crazy....

The hotel needs updating. I've stayed at many Embassy's and they never disappoint. Everything about this hotel was as expected except for the rooms. The 2nd floor used to be a smoking floor and has not been renovated. Our furniture had burn holes and the room smelled horrible. Once we were moved to a different floor we enjoyed the rest...

Great location, close to USF, VAMC, Moffitt Cancer Center, and Busch Gardens. Among the friendliest and most responsive hotel staff I have ever encountered. Decent amenities. Good place for a mid- to long-term stay. Great happy hour.

I will start with the good. The staff here was just great. They were very friendly and very helpful. The shuttle service was good as well. You call them when you ready to go somewhere (for us Buxch Gardens) and they were very prompt. The hotel wasn't very busy when we were there so i don't know how prompt it...

Originally booked for the free shuttle to Busch Gardens and we were pleased with our previous stay at an Embassy Suite Hotel. The furnishings could use some updating but overall it was neat and clean. This is a smaller facility and seems to cater to smaller events and meetings. The staff makes this a wonderful place to stay. I really...
