The suites are very livable, the food in the restaurant is super yummy, and the front desk and restaurant staff are very friendly and helpful. Nice shuttle service to take me to the local stores and to Busch Gardens (where I had a super fun day). I stayed here for almost 2 weeks, and I would stay again because it's a good value.

"Avoid until issues resolved esp Busch Gardens Vacations partnership"

Do not book with Busch Gardens Vacations. This hotel is a partner hotel. Do not book here until new manaent to fixes issues experienced during our stay. I also attempted to submit our survey which looks like it times out at the end (ugggh!). Busch Gardens vacations did not have any recourse regarding the hotel experience so I'm reporting about our family vacation for 4 and on behalf of another family of 5 we traveled to meet to communicate our overall impressions & experiences. If I understand correctly 30to40 total BGV families were present during the same post Christmas week as well at this same hotel. There were a myriad of problems that all compounded into a series of frustrations that we did our best to laugh off and enjoy but still tainted a much anticipated trip. Check-in experience:  Nearly a 2hour delay to check-in due chiefly due not having our reservation downloaded into the system from BGV yet the family of 5 was fine, ours was not in the system.  Attempts to contact BGV resulted in 50+minute hold times & a disconnected call. Holiday Inn contacted Edline whom spoke with some other manager to finagle approving us a room comparable to our $1,000+ reservation. We were comped 2 drink/snack vouchers from the inconvenience offer versus a lousy credit of 500 IHG points.  Shortly after check-in we discovered the onsite "Burger Theory" restaurant was out of burgers and had a very limited menu. Kindly we were guided to next door diners. For the next 4 days the onsite restaurant was out of burgers and did a horrendous job the 2 days they 'hosted' the free breakfast guests.  So 3of6 days of our stay we were able to use the free buffet style breakfast vouchers in a conference room but even this food selection was meager at best on cereal/eggs/bacon/coffee availability. Did I mention the 5 kids with us were unable to swim since the Heated pool was broke. It was broke all 5 days for our friends and 5o6 we were residents.  WiFi (if you could connect at all) was down or awful slow.  Rooms:  Sorely out of date, uncomfortable/noisy couch in Queen Suite with no pillows, thin walls/floors/ceilings, TVs small, musty room smell; a/c freezes living room at night but bedroom areas warm/uncomfortable; zero USB ports in room & low outlet count for charging devices. Other noticed issues: luggage cart did not roll straight & difficult to push; ice only available on 2nd floor none on 1st floor despite signage & asking employee; Got a call from staff that our reservation was input incorrectly but luckily it was 'extended' to honor the original reservation (nice panic moments while at beach w family)  Upon checkout I spoke with the Hotel manager who explained struggles with breakfast and his idea to implore inconsistent, meager buffet offerings. Manager was polite & apologetic for check-in, pool & restaurant issues. We didn't use the drink vouchers & he let us instead get snacks for breakfast from the pantry area (kids were happy w candy, cookies & chips breakfast but parents not so much). He couldn't offer any partial refund, comp nights or anything else. Very disappointing stay overall from beginning to end with exception kudos to friendly staff at desk & shuttle services. The friendly staff & other family we traveled to meet is the only reasons we didn't opt out to attempt a different BGV partner hotel (if we could survive the 50+minute hold times)

The room was extremely clean and spacious. The entire staff was helpful, knowledgeable, friendly, and professional, when checking in, our vacation package had the dates wrong, Kim fixed it in a timely manor. The restaurant Burger Theory has delicious food. The staff Jaylee, Tinesha, Britni, and Omyra at the restaurant made you feel right at home. Even with a small snafu one day, Britney made sure the next day we were treated very well. The shuttle drivers were courteous, professional and timely. Maureen was such a delight! We will definitely stay at this establishment again when in the Tampa area.

The staff here were extremely helpul and friendly. Rooms were clean and very nice. Property was well landscaped. Tina J. helped us sort out confusion over our room, she was professional and kind. Similarly, the next morning, Tara went above and beyond helping to sort out an issue with Busch Gardens that I didn't know was a problen until she made me aware of it. Really saved us what may have been a lot of trouble and is greatly appreciated.
