"Wanted to like it but can't...roaches, poor service!!"

After reading the Trip Advisor reviews I wanted to like this hotel. It seemed to have a lot to offer as part of the Busch Gardens vacation plan (free breakfast, free shuttle to BG, onsite restaurant) for our first visit to Tampa but there was one issue after another. Hotel: You should know and accept what you're getting. This is an older hotel that's been renovated. We were okay with that but not the many issues. The decor in the rooms and lobby were nicely done. The onsite business center and information for area attractions are helpful. Keep in mind the rooms are no smoking but the walkway/balcony in front of the room doors are not, neither is the courtyard. We walked through smokers each day going to the lobby to catch the shuttle, to the pool, and to the restaurant. If you make it through the smoke. There's a nice pool with plenty towels available for guest. The front desk: Staff are friendly with the exception of the young lady working around 7pm on 7/17. She also wasn't informative. We didn't receive info on where or what time breakfast was served even though it was part of our package and didn't get our Busch Gardens preferred hotel lanyards until I asked someone else the next day. Others at the desk werevnice but were confused about standard things they should know like how to order room service with free breakfast coupons or if you could do so (restaurant manager, Cain, said we could). Rooms: We booked a suite with 2 queen beds, sleeper sofa, and kitchenette. The room was very spacious with plenty of room for our family of 5. Having a microwave and mini frig with lots of counter space is nice. However, we stayed 4 days and found a roach in our room each day...3 dead, 1 alive!!! Having a room in the back (directly across from office on the walkway with the elevator) will ensure there's no noise from the pool but the view from the windows is unacceptable. Although I wanted to let some light in, the curtains stayed closed.. You get to look at trash, a poorly maintained tree area, and not so nice apartments. There was also at least an 1/2 in opening under the door as another reviewer mentioned. I'm surprised roaches are all we found. Oh wait! It wasn't! My 9 year old found a cigarette lighter in the mini frig! I have no clue as to why it was there. In addition, towels and comforters should be checked for stains and discarded. Onsite restaurant: Breakfast was free with the BG vaction package and pretty good but the morning management struggled. Restaurant staff should know their busy times and manage accordingly. The wait times were long and service fair. We also tried lunch and dinner and I only had 1 decent meal (siracha steak salad) even though reviews said the food was good. My husband did like his BBQ wings and kids liked the pizza. The burgers in this burger joint (the boss burger, the farm burger) were tasteless including the quesadilla burger. Honesty, Wendy's would have been better and cheeper...no lie! *There is a "kids eat free" option for 2 kids with the purchase of an adult meal. This is helpful to families if you are okay with the food. Service was also fair at lunch and dinner. There was conflict from shift to shift on how the "kids eat free " worked and wrong orders...several issues for us. Server Kayla was the exception. Everyone was friendly but she was the best! There were just too many problems to overlook and I didn't list them all. I addressed the roach issue with the guy on the desk around 11 am on 7/20. He apologized and offered a room change. However, changing rooms won't solve the many issues listed here and what was already experienced. I have already made note of other hotels in the area (i.e., a new Home2 Suites by Marriott is being built nearby, etc) for future visits. We won't be back!!!!

We checked I today and Mrs. Audrey Thomas was so helpful!! She surprised the children with little stuffed giraffes and kindly showed us around. She's a great asset to this hotel and made us feel right at home. In the past few months we've stayed in 3 different Hilton properties along with other boutique hotels. I wasn't sure what to expect from this trip. It's been a lovely surprise!! Our room is large enough for our family of four. It's Spotlessly clean. The staff is so courteous! Honestly I wouldn't change anything!! Please stay here if you are visiting Bush Gardens. You won't be disappointed!!

Very Disappointed. Had just joined the rewards program at last stay and mentioned at checkin. When checked out there was no member discount provided, nor AARP or AAA either of which could have applied instead if membership is worthless. Was told at desk that member discount is given when booked on line!! Usually. No change for other discounts given. No free breakfast. Restaurant on premises was less than good and sign offered children eat free. Charge on bill for child's meal because children free if order off children's menu. Wonder where it said that? We had burgers . I sound like a cheap skate which I'm not really. It was the attitude at the desk and the all but deceptive billing practice of this place that bothered me the most. I have emailed the customer service dept. and as of this writing have had no response by the way. It's a great location. It's old and the room was adequate enough. But there's a Hampton Inn and Suites right next door.

I stayed at their suit. It was a beautiful, large, modern, and clean room with all the amenities. Hotel is located less than two miles from Busch Garden has a wonderful shuttle system. I recommend this hotel for anyone who's interested at visiting Busch Garden Tampa, specially if they have children.

This hotel is very close to the amusement park and includes free parking. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. Service was amazing and breakfast was included in our rate, which was reasonably priced.
