We were visiting Busch Gardens from the Disnay area, so decided to stay the night - hotel fine for the money, a bit tired, but hey, not as tired as us! Served its purpose fine, pool okay, our boys played in it till around 10.30pm when it was closed - we sat by the bar and had a couple of drinks; what more do you need? Breakfast was a bit basic, and we have had nicer, but edible.

We booked this hotel after reading the reviews here. We were very surprised to find a very dated, worn out hotel. The staff were friendly but not able to give us clear directions to their hotel from a few miles away.

The bed linens were torn (the bedskirt) and the top covers were very faded. This hotel has not been updated for decades and barely resembles the pictures you see on the Best Western website.

The bathroom was relatively clean in the evening, but by morning there were ants crawling all over everything on the vanity.

The pool area and hallways were simply dirty and unkempt -- there were no towels in the little closet by the pool and the elevator had about an inch of dirty standing water.

The restaurant was the worst part of our stay. They served our three kids rancid milk -- I mean I have never smelled milk so spoiled. I sent it back and the kids got lemonade. It never dawned on me they would put rancid milk in the food but they apparently did because my 7 year old was throwing up her macaroni and cheese at midnight -- no symptoms before and she was fine afterward -- clearly food poisoning.

My meal was chicken caesar salad served on clearly rotten, brown lettuce.

This hotel was cheaper than others around, but I would gladly drive the extra miles or pay the extra $$ to erase this nightmare from our vacation.

Stayed at the Best Western during school vacation April 16-20. It was very convenient for going to Busch Gardens and Adventure Island, only about a mile away. The hotel itself was very nice. Lovely pool area and sun deck. The patio bar was nice and the food and drinks were reasonable - mostly Mexican food on the menu. The room itself was large, with a seperate sitting area which included a T.V. , microwave and refrigerator. The bedroom had two double beds and a large vanity area with sink. The hotel offers free shuttle service to Busch Gardens and Adventure Island but, only once a day. Leaves at 10:00 am and picks up at 6:00 pm. Since the park closed at 7:00 pm in April, we had no other option but to take a taxi on four seperate occasions which cost $6.00 each time. Most of the time the shuttle was just sitting out in front of the hotel. I think they should offer more times for the shuttle to run throughout the day. The only other complaint I have is that breakfast should be offered past 9:30 and, the pool bar should be opened later than 10:00. F.Y.I. - There is a little convenience store across the street from the hotel at the light that sells beer, soda, snacks etc.

Stayed: April 2007

We had stayed here about two years ago. The location is great for Busch Gardens, USF, Moffit.

The rooms really need updating but were clean and comfortable.
The set up of the rooms are OK, they're not really suites but was great for traveling with a teenager - pull out couch and separate TV.

The pool area is great for families. You can sit at the bar area and watch the kids at the pool. You can order food out here too. At the other end of the outside deck are pool and ping pong tables.

The breakfast is fine. Nothing spectacular but better than a continental breakfast.
The walkways, stairwells, and parking lot could use some cleaning.

The staff was very friendly and helpful.

We stayed here while visiting Busch Gardens. This hotel is just around the corner. When you drive up to the hotel you can see roller coasters in the backround.
Was it the greatest hotel we could have stayed at? No. But at just $85.00 a night, we got what we expected.
The hotel rooms could use some updating. The bathrooms really could use updating.
The pool area was nice. My husband and I sat poolside at the bar and enjoyed 2 for 1 happy hour drinks while the kids enjoyed the pool. The hot tub temperature was unbelievable hot! Unbearable actually!
Breakfast is simple. You get a plate of scrambled eggs, sausage and hash browns. You help yourself to toast, coffee, juice and breakfast cereals. Some fruit would have been nice.
If you are looking for a place to lay your head after a long day at the park, I think this hotel will do.
