Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 1gingerbella excellence!!!!
this is the honest truth from a very satisfied guest!
Our stay was very relaxed, pleasant & comfortable! The staff was very friendly & accommodating. The hotel lobby, our room & the dining area were super clean. We appreciated the fact that our 8 pound (baby) dog was also welcomed, for a fee of course & to our surprise the room didn't smell of past 4 legged "friend" visitors!
We are very impressed & thankful & we highly recommend this beautiful hotel!
THANK YOU!! & THANK YOU to your wonderful staff!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by heebiejeebie good stay
Very good stay and staff overall were helpful and attentive...
Asked one staff member how the shutdown was affecting any attractions in Florida and he was quite brusque in his response......
"I have know idea what you're talking about"
Also noticed plenty of yawns and personal mobile phone checking from same staff member during stay.
Every other staff member was top class,young gentleman who checked us in was most polite and welcoming.
Room was spotless.
This was a perfect location for us for Tampa Bay Buccaneers stadium and Busch Gardens.
Only a couple of restaurants nearby however but fine for a short stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bella21 Perfect!
EVERYTHING about our stay was excellent! We had left a bag of clothes in one of the 2 rooms we had. When I called to see if they found it the person I talked to knew exactly what I was talking about. They shipped the clothes to me and I had them within 2 days. Very clean, comfortable beds, great breakfast, and friendly staff. Will definitely stay here again!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BobBizTraveller Really nice newly renovated hotel
I stayed here in October 2013 and the hotel was really nice - looks like it was just renovated. It is very modern, clean and attractive. The rooms are the same - newly renovated and nice. The staff also made extra effort when I arrived - offering a free bottle of water at checkin. Breakfast was good - I had hardboiled eggs but there was also cereal, scrambled eggs and some other items that I did not pay much attention to. I also liked that there is a movie theatre about a three minute walk so I was able to go see a movie easily. Overall this is a really nice hotel - far above my expectations for a Holiday Inn which I associate in my mind with low-budget. I am probably being unfair to Holiday Inns but that is my perspective. But maybe I am out of date. In any event this Holiday Inn is really nice.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jmorg20 Great customer service and great facility
When we arrived Judy greeted us with a great smile and warm personality. The hotel was great in all aspects from the room space, the mattress being super comfortable. Judy also recommended a great restaurant to eat. We also received an ice cream treat in the evening. Breakfast was great with a nice variety of items and flavored creamer for our coffee. Comfortable seating and great view. The pool was beautiful and really secluded from the road but yet very safe. The manager has a sign in the elevator with his cell phone number on it if you had an issue I spoke with him and told him I was going to call to tell him what a wonderful and relaxing experience we had and that I would be back to stay again.

It was just an overnight stay but my room was very clean, the bed was amazingly comfortable and the sheets were crisp and white. The breakfast was very good with adequate choices. I will definitely stay there again during my next trip to Tampa.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Raul305 Presidential Suite
The hotel is clean and comfortable.
For staying in a presidential suite myself as well as guest were disappointed and uncomfortable when showering as the bathroom was not equipped with an extractor. This made taking a shower hot and uncomfortable.
Overall I thought we'd get a little more than received bit room and bed was comfortable.
had a la
Come breakfast the hotel that weekend had a large group staying. The line was insane and getting a cup of coffee was insane and guest in line were hostel for a cup of coffee.

At first you arrive and the hotel does not seem any different than a mid level hotel. But the service is absolutely above and beyond. Any issue I may have had with the room was quickly resolved without any hassle..Accommodations were perfect. comfortable bed great atmosphere.

We have stayed at this property a number of times and each experience seems better. We have and will continue to recommend the facility to friends and family.
They are just about finished with a "make-over" that is beautiful.
This location is ideal for Tampa attractions, particularly Busch Gardens.
From your very first stay, the staff will make you feel as though you are part of their family stopping by for a visit. Truly, the place is special.

Upon arrival from overseas in Fort Myers we chose this hotel as a stopover on our way to Savannah. What a good choice it was !
Except for the fact that we could not open the window for some fresh air, everything else was up to snuff. Very friendly receptionist, who surprised us with some cold drinks and ice cream. Good nights rest in comfortable beds. Good breakfast , even with hot pancakes.
General Manager introduced himself and asked, if he could do anything for us ! We really felt that he cared about his guests as well as his staff. Congratulations.

The hotel is nice...clean, comfortable, good exercise room. The only thing that was missing was a microwave and refrigerator in the room.. I like HI because there is always a microwave and ref. in each room...at least where I have stayed in the past.. I was told that was in their future plans at this property...

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Puddykat1026 Great Room... Poor Service
Got to the hotel promptly at 3 PM for check in & was told the room wasn't ready, it would be another 30 minutes. I said ok & asked them to check in the people behind me while I confirmed with one of my hotel mates if they needed extra pillows. After 20 minutes I was able to let them know I needed 2 extra pillows & they told me they would add them & it would be another 20 minutes. at 4 PM my room STILL wasn't ready! After getting the manager involved, he refused to rectify the situation in any way (no compensation for my time at all, making me feel like I wasn't important), but miraculously the room was ready when he came to the desk. I was late to the wedding I was in town for because of them. The room was clean & my 1 night stay was pleasant and quite. Breakfast was simple & restocked as needed.

We were very pleased with our choice to stay here for our Busch Gardens family weekend. We got a great package deal through the hotel for the park, enjoyed the pool on property, and the nightly ice cream in the lobby (big hit with Adults and kids!)
I would highly recommend this property for anyone with families that is planning a trip to Busch Gardens.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nan48 VERY NICE 2-Night Stay!
Wife and I stayed with you folks in 2010 and was VERY impressed with the Staff and room! AND, what a way to say "Hello" at check-in.......a FREE cold brew! LOVED IT!!
So, for this trip to Tampa and Hard Rock, we decided to stay with you folks again. The room was VERY NICE w/a frig and microwave. The bed..........WONDERFUL!! A little construction noise in the morning, but nothing to complain about. Couldn't use the pool due to a t-storm the first day and a lot of folks in the pool area the second day. Anyway, having a nice room, very good breakfast and WINNING at Hard Rock made this trip TERRIFIC!!

I visit this Holiday Inn on a frequent basis. It is clean, professional, not to expensive and for the money absolutely great. One of the key differences is your professional staff. One of your employees, Lois, makes all the difference in the world. She makes you feel at home, handles her business professionally and knows the area (recommendations on where to take customers for dinner, entertainment, printing, etc.). Your establishment is lucky to have a person of this caliber.

We've stayed in many hotels/motels over the years and I must say that this one is tops. We weren't bothered by the construction at all. The bed was superb and the staff bent over backwards to be accommodating. We will definately use this hotel again!

Without question one of the best hotel stays I have had in North America. From the complimentary beer/water upon arrival to the hotel to the personal offering of bottled water at the pool from the Hotel Manager was incredible that created an absolute WOW factor. The friendly and engaging hotel staff far exceeded my expectations. The Hotel Manager was very engaging at breakfast inquiring each guest on the quality of their stay.
I would not hesitate to come back and would absolutely recommend this hotel for anyone visiting the Tampa area.
