Hotel was ok. Room was clean but very small. The breakfast they give you is good but the people aren't very nice or willing to help. They were out of a lot of things. No towels for the pool, no extra shampoo if needed. Overall for the price it wasn't bad but probably would stay there again.

I have to say I've been very pleased with over all everything, some bug issues, cleaning people walking in the room etc. The staff is awesome over all EXCEPT one person who does NOT fit in a service oriented industry. "ricky" call me after staying there for over a month, and while i was extremely busy and a little late...

I was very skeptical of this hotel because of past reviews. However, we were very happy with the hotel. Yes, it could use some up dates or pressure wash but the staff were friendly, no bugs, and our room was great. I don't even know if I was in the newly renovated area or not. I didn't care. The breakfast...

Got in at 12 o'clock at night. first thing we found was a stopped up bathtub with filthy water it. Then they gave us another room next door. Almost broke my leg walking in to find a hundred feet of extension cord laying right inside the door. A Clarion Hotel that could not find so much as a plunger. That...

I read many reviews before I booked this hotel and I must say it exceeded my expectations. Some reviews said the carpet was dirty and the mattresses as well but I found both very clean. There was a building b next door that was being remodeled perhaps this was where the negative reviews were coming from. Service was wonderful and...

During our five day conference for the Grand Lodge of Florida IOOF I found the staff and management did all they could to make us feel welcome. The staff was available to us at all times, with little delay. The food was excellent, well prepared and presented by courteous wait staff. We have visited this hotel for our conferences for...

The conference center and lobby and along with the pool area were beautiful and keep up quit nicely. But the rooms and back parking are very sad looking. In need of a lot of update... P.S. don't think there is a great breakfast to eat either. Food was cold and half of the items were gone choices slim pickings.

This was our second time we stayed at this hotel. The first time was back in March for a Bush Garden visit. We really enjoyed our first stay, so we booked it again just this past weekend to see the Zoominations Chinese Lantern Festival at Lowry Park. The hotel is conveniently located close to Bush Garden, and a 10 minutes...

Staff was very friendly. Room was nice, beds comfortable. BUT the bathroom door would not close unless you lifted up on the knob and pushed it with your knee. Then you had to pull really hard to open it. Breakfast was good. Located very close to USF Botanical Gardens, and Busch Gardens. Convenient for getting cross bay to St Petersburg.
