Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Absolutely a wonderful place to stay. Stayed here from 3/20 to 3/25 for a family vacation to Sea World and Busch Gardens. Being a family that normally pulls our camper down, we have not stayed in a Hotel in several years, We honestly did not know what to expect. We Absolutely had a wonderful time. All of the staff was super friendly and helpful. The two night ladies were absolutely amazing. The breakfasts was above and beyond a continental breakfast, the pancake machine was a big hit with my girls, but offered fruits, cereals, omelets, eggs, sausage,French toasts and cinnamon rolls..and let's not forget a freezer with free ice cream. We did get into the pool 2 night during our stay. Pool grounds were very well kept in a beautiful area, very refreshing after a long day at the parks. We stayed in room 322. The room was clean and spacious. Rooms were quiet and sound resistant for the most part. Had 2 queen beds with a pull out couch. Had a small fridge with a microwave and coffee pot. I will say the only reason I'm not giving it a 5 star review. #1 The beds were a little firm for our liking, #2 our bathroom could have used a little work, none of our drains, drained very well. and #3 Ice machines are only located on floors 2 and 4. Other than those few minor items we had a very pleasant stay. We would absolutely without hesitation stay here again. Short distance to Busch Gardens, 15 min or less....About 1.5 hour drive...71 Miles to Sea World.

Hotel's Favourite
I've stay here several times since our daughter moved to Tampa. It is about a 15 minute drive from USF, and in a super quiet location. A good variety of restaurants and stores are close by. I've found the staff to be friendly and accommodating, and the hotel is always clean. The pool area is small, but nicely landscaped and obscured from the parking. The pool area is what brings me back! It's all the good things that you would expect of a HI Express.

Check in was terrific. Saundra is top notch and a wonderful asset to the front desk. We had booked, prior to our arrival, a room for 3 nights. When we did arrive to the hotel we asked if there was a suite available. Saundra was able to put us in a suite, with no problem. It was very clean and the beds were super comfortable. A hot breakfast was included in the stay. A nice addition was the ice cream that is offered every night. We found the hotel staff to be friendly. We would definitely stay here again, when in the area.

We stayed here for one night before catching our flight the next day out of Tampa airport. The room was clean and okay. Check in was fine and everyone was nice. We did hear a dog barking next door and told the front desk. Not sure if anything was done or not. We did hear it a few times after the call. The area seemed okay, my husband did notice the local police hanging out there which was nice to see. The TGIF restaurant which is right by there will give you a discount on your order on your meal for staying here. We did have dinner there. It was close by. Not sure if we would stay here again, but it was fine for one night.

Great day for a lunch with my mom and my niece.. Our server Elaine was very patient and friendly. She was also very attentive to our needs. I have always loved this place and have been coming here for years. Today my chicken wings were very overcooked. Our loaded fries and mozzarella sticks were great. My mother's soup broccoli an cheddar had a taste she didn't like. Still I belive this is a great restaurant to visit. My niece loved this restaurant

Annel (guest service manager) went above and beyond to address, fix, and follow up with us on a room issue we had. SO impressed with the level of customer service we received. I travel frequently and have never experienced such a professional, courteous hospitality manager. Would absolutely book again and recommend anyone else to do the same!

This was a stop on our way to camp at Fort de Soto, the rooms were exceptionally clean, they have good protocols in place for covid and we felt very secure due to the comings and goings of local police. Apparently they like to take breaks here :)

right off I75 but in a quiet location. Friendly staff, good breakfast and clean rooms. Hotel could use a makeover - a bit older and more tired than most other Holiday Inns. My door was very difficult to open and the first room they gave me had clearly been smoked in.

We booked this hotel as part of a Busch Gardens vacation package. It is about a 20 minute drive to the park, which isn’t too bad. We chose this hotel because the price for tickets and all day dining for one day was the same as some of the other hotels without the dining. The room was a typical holiday inn room and was clean with nice beds. We could spread out our stuff easily and still have room to walk around. Breakfast was pastries, microwave sandwiches (you microwave them in your room) and milk and orange juice. Not a huge choice but good enough for our day without the dining at Busch Gardens. For the price with tickets and the dining we would definitely stay here again. It’s a great value. Especially if you are going to Busch Gardens. The rooms are nice and you aren’t in them very long since you spend all day at the park.

This is a great Holiday Inn Express, one of the best we’ve experienced. Check-in was swift & friendly with Dee, who also upgraded us, and was also helpful & hospitable in other interactions during our stay. The room was very clean. Breakfast included hot items including omelets, pancakes & their signature cinnamon rolls - all served by staff with every COVID precaution in place. The pool area was lovely. This Hotel is in a great location, also near shopping & restaurants, with I75 nearby. This was such a nice hotel that we were sorry it was only for one night on our 2.5 week Florida trip. Thank you for a great stay. We will definitely return.
