    The NASTIEST hotel Inn I’ve ever been on

    Let me start off by saying, that not even in more affordable hotels or Airbnb’s I’ve ever stayed on, I had any horrible experience like this. I’ve stayed at many Holiday Inns and always found them pleasant. THIS ONE HOWEVER was dirty! And when I say I saw ROACHES I don’t mean only one, or two, but encountered 3 of them in the almost 2 nights. I obviously refused to stay my second night after encountering 2 more roaches and I rushed out at almost 1am with my family. The area is not the best area in Tampa either. If you’re in Tampa for Busch Gardens, the best experience will be staying in hotels a few more miles from that area.

    NOT recommend to stay

    We had cockroaches in our room. Only had 2 towels when we checked in with 4 people in each room. One roll of toilet paper. Advertised to have a couch in the room, did not have a couch. When I asked the manager he responded, ‘Oh yeh, that is false advertising”. Room was not ready on time, even checking in a hour later than check in. Ordered 2 rooms, tried to give me a down graded room than what I paid for on one of them. Carpet in room very stained. Breakfast was VERY under whelming. Most items ran out with no urgency to restock. Receipt of bill for second night says 181.99, actually charged 206.00! Would NEVER recommend this place. Please find another place to stay!

    The staff were very nice and tried to help, but it was kind of like the first day in business. Shuttle broke down, no room services at all, not even to empty the waste basket. Pay a little more and stay in a nicer place.

    We landed really late at night showed up to the hotel to check in. Went to our room only to find that the beds weren’t made the door was open before we even got there the room had not been cleaned go back downstairs to let them know since there was six of us they didn’t have another room to accommodate so they had to split us up. Only to later find out they charged us got two rooms when this clearly wasn’t our fault.

    I would have chosen somewhere else if I knew...

    The hotel has seen better days. The remodel for the hotel was over five years ago, and it shows. We had to change rooms due to issues with the 1st room, and the 2nd room was not much better. The 2nd day we were there, they had to turn off the water for about 4 hours to fix some plumbing issues. Safety was a little bit of a concern due to the doors not always shutting properly.
