The breakfast staff treat you like family. Very friendly and helpful. Gabriel and Anne were the best! And the Front Desk/Welcome staff were always smiling and helpful as well. Was very glad that I chose to stay here!

Spent 5 days at this hotel in order to attend USF Freshman Orientation and Student Dropoff. We really enjoy staying at Embassy Suites brand. This hotel is the perfect location for USF and Busch Gardens. Our suite showed signs of aging where the couch in the living room had holes in it. One of the phones in the suite seemed...

If poor wifi and having tons of college freshman around is what you are looking for then stay here. Other choices are better. There are very few places to eat unless you have a rental car. Maid service is inconsistent. Breakfast has cook to order eggs but long lines. Good coffee and juice. 7 bucks a day to park your...

Beds were very old and uncomfortable staff was inexperienced and overall cleanliness and smell from this hotel left much to be desired. The sofa bed was barely useable with the springs of the mattress produding. Room had a musty smell.

There for grandson's graduation from USF. Our 3rd visit. Would definitely recommend. Great for families visiting their children at the University. Shuttle accommodations for transportation to and from activities is a hotel advantage. Staff is wonderful.

This is the way to go if wanting to visit Busch Gardens. It has a free shuttle that takes you anywhere within 3 miles and the convenience for getting to Busch Gardens can't be beat. Comfortable rooms for family and great breakfast.

Stayed at this hotel for one night as my brother was celebrating his wedding reception at a hall in the hotel. This hotel has tremendous opportunity given its location, ammenities, hotel bar, breakfast area, room suites, and floorplan. However, it is in major need of a renovation. Everything in the hotel seems to be circa 2000, including the rooms. Even...

My biggest complaint is the cleaning or maid service. We have been here over a week so this is not a onetime occurrence. Rooms are cleaned very late in the day. It is now past 6pm and no one has come to the room. We have garbage that needs to be taken out. We need clean towels. We were told...

The meeting planning staff here is top notch. They were so accommodating and attentive. I have done quite a bit of business meeting planning but I usually only review hotel stays in terms of my personal experience, but the staff here is too good not to mention.
