This is a very convenient, clean, reasonable place to stay if you are going to Busch Gardens, or Moffitt Cancer center. Staff is excellent. Breakfast very adequate. Very close to entertainment, restaurants. and shopping.

While the room was clean, the hotel was clean and in excellent condition of appearance, the service of 1 person ruined a great week. This hotel lacked maintenance in the details that really matter like a properly working door and comfortable beds.

Surveyed the area for a place to stay for the night in this area for a morning appointment at USF. Based on our prior stays with La Quinta, we chose this Inn near our destination. The price was competitive and offered a discount. The property met our expectations.

The room (standard king) was large and very clean. They had a whirlpool spa and pool, which were clean and well kept. Rates were a little high, but they had a continental breakfast every morning, free wifi, and exercise room. Room had refrigerator and microwave and was close to restaurants and shopping. Would stay here again. Only complaint, we wanted...
