After a horrible experience in Daytona Beach at a Hilton, we got to this hotel and loved it. Clean, great breakfast, friendly staff and served ice cream in lobby for my kids. Had a nice pool but didn't have time to swim.

We had a 2 night stay before our cruise. Excellent location close to shopping and restaurants. The room was clean with everything needed, the staff were very friendly, and the complimentary breakfast was an added bonus. I would definitely stay again.

Our anniversary weekend we decided to go to Bush Gardens and this was our hotel of choice. Not a bad location. The hotel is nice and clean-in the area in which they call the New Tampa. Police presence at this hotel is frequent and they patrol the grounds regularly. Our room was nice and clean. Bathroom was clean. No complaints....
