"location is perfect for Busch Gardens, hotel services poor, don't expect much"

The location is great for Bush Gardens - it's about 10-15 minutes to get there. The facility is nice, clean, except the pool - it didn't look clean and there were leaves, plastic knives and other stuff on the bottom. The room was nice and spacious when you order suites, the sleeper sofa is impossible to sleep on (squizes and very uncomfortable), the bed were OK though. The "hot breakfast" they serve is not really worthy and it is kind of wierd. You have to go to the restaurant with some coupons and order from their menu - like one meal (kids under 12 have special and very limited menu and if they want something from the "adult menu" you either have to give them yours or pay extra for it) Well, we paid price for 4 adults and our son was honoured a kid's menu at the age 12.5, so we shared food with him. We never got what we had ordered, even if we had ordered the same thing 3 days in a row. On the other hand, the food was really good and tasty. However, the service not, the toasts were served 10 minutes after the omelet and it was obvious that "coupon customers" were treated differently. We were also dissapointed with the shuttle bus service. The first 2 days it worked perfectly, then there was a note that the following day the shuttle bus wouldn't operate 12:45-3:30pm, as it needed to be servised. When we got to the reception at 12:25 we were told that the driver had already left for the service. The manager then adviced us to go there by our own car saying "it's not a big deal" it's 5 minutes and you have the free parking with the tickets. I was quite shocked how easy they were done with us, they just didn't care. Next time we'd rather pay a bit more and book another hotel where we can rely on service.

"Close to Busch Gardens, quiet, clean and comfortable"

The hotel is fairly close to Busch Gardens, an easy drive after a long day at the park. There are several chain restaurants within a couple miles of the hotel as well as other establishments adjacent to the property. The area is quiet even though it is just off SR-582. The hotel is set up in a square with the outdoor pool and a building with the restaurant located in the center. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The breakfast is not complimentary, you have to find an inclusive package or pay a separate fee. Close to Busch Gardens as well as multiple eating options. Quiet area, would stay again.

The holidays is terrible, only one person at the reception desk, waited the longest time to check in. Make sure you do not eat breakfast here, service and food is horible, waited 45 minutes to order, after another 45 minutes my omelet came with mushrooms, after I clearly requested no mushrooms 3 times. My granddaughter eggs never came, toast was forgotten, coffee was never serve. Do not stay here, for the price 112.00 this is a horrible place.

"Average hotel, nothing special but OK"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed April 14, 2019
Stayed here on a recent business trip to Tampa as all hotels in the Westshore area, where I normally stay, were sold out. The hotel is located close to Busch Gardens and USF but it's off a main road and a bit, just a bit, hidden. It's not a bad option if you're going to one of those two places although there were a few other hotels in the area that looked a little better, if more expensive. One big kudos is for the front desk staff, both when I arrived and checked out. They were extremely friendly and helpful and were the highlight of the stay. The hotel is older and a bit dated. The layout is somewhat odd, around a courtyard with the pool in the middle of the courtyard, but only one elevator at the opposite end of the check in area, which is on the 2nd floor of a 3 story hotel. My room, on the 3rd floor was at the very end of the 3rd floor and while not a long walk, it was a little difficult to find, nothing major. The hotel does not have closed corridors, its just one open walkway. My room was very small, as was the bathroom, although there was a refrigerator and microwave. Television channel choices was good and the bed was OK. The a/c had a little humming sound that went on all night. It didn't bother me and I slept well, but I can see where someone might complain about it. The hotel was clean, but as it's dated, it just looks a little dumpy. In the end, it was an OK stay. Would I stay again? Probably not unless I had to stay in this area in which case I'd likely look for another option. However, it's not an absolutely "I'll never stay here again". It's not a bad hotel, there's just nothing very special about it.

"Older Hotel trying to keep up"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed March 29, 2019
Just stayed here two nights while visiting family, not closeby but it was difficult to find a room at a reasonable price. this Holiday Inn is obviously an older one, located in a not so nice part of town. that said, management has made some effort to keep up, the rooms seem to be more or less remodeled, and were clean enough. air conditioning and water worked fine, as did the TV and cable selection. the king sized bed however, was of very poor quality, soft, bouncy, and the bedding seemed somewhat plastic. so it was not very restful and it took me a couple of days to catch up on my rest. I had no problems with the staff, although I didn't need them, and I was away during the day and didn't try the food. I wouldn't discourage someone from staying here if you have a reason to be in this area, but keep in mind the limitations.
