Staff is friendly and accommodating. Room is overall clean and comfortable.

Not sure why but I expected it to look a little better. Considering the price I can't complain. Breakfast was not that good. Weird that breakfast seating area is right in front of the hotel main door.

For the price paid, you get a comfortable and clean room. Staff is very friendly. Close to Busch Gardens which made it a plus for me. On the main road where you can dine anywhere around the area. Will recommend for a short stay. ... more

Location and comfortable bed and pillows. Nice decor. Room was large and clean. No problems with the room or check in/out proceedures. A good hotel, we would stay here again.

Went down to breakfast at 8:45 and all the hard boiled eggs were gone and I was told there were no more. The oatmeal & fruit were gone too. All that was left was waffles and muffins. There was no protein choices available. Serve all foods till 9am.

The location, staff, room, decor were all excellent for a 2 1/2 star hotel. We were taking a tour at USF and the school is across the street and Busch Gardens was less than a mile away. The only complaint was the breakfast. My son's waffle was half cooked and I didn't get breakfast because there was no protein choices available. All in all, recommend the hotel and would stay again. Just eat breakfast else where. ... more

The rooms were nice looking and clean. A few minor wear here and there, but overall a decent place to stay.

The elevator button for the third floor (our floor) was not functioning all the time and was hard to work with.

It is not a resort or anything, but for the price it is a decent and clean hotel with several things within walking distance such as USF and MOSI. Not many restaurants around, but it suited our purposes which was a walk to MOSI and a place to sleep. ... more

The location was great in relation to Busch Gardens and everything else.

The hotel was very old. The are asking over --- for rooms that need to be updated. There were large stains on the carpet and the bathroom shower leaked. The A/C did not cool below 70 degrees. For the price I expected so much more.

The people at the front were not helpful at all. I asked for extra linens to make up the sofa bed and was told they would brought to the room but they never were. The breafast was very low quality food. The bacon was very chewy and the guy making the omelet would have rather been working elsewhere. I've stayed at other Emabssy Suites and was very happy but I won't be staying at this one again. Overpriced for the condition of the hotel. ... more

Great breakfast.

We had reserved a king bed but were given double beds 2 times. They had run out of kings. No lotion in the room and very cheap bath products. I usually bring my own but they were in a different bag and we were only staying 1 night and didn't want to carry

All about location. Not a great motel for the price. ... more

I was quite surprised they plan on renovating as I was very impressed with the cleanliness and upkeep of the rooms and the grounds. Tara and Audrey were absolutely wonderful. Housekeeping did great job cleaning and restocking.

Our bathroom had leak from air conditioning and was told it would be fixed and never was, so every time we used restroom, we were dripped on and had to get extra towels since the drip also got all towels wet. Breakfast could use more of a variety.

Hope to definitely return to this hotel, especially since the pool wasn't heated at the time and only got a few hours in pool with my daughter. It was so much nicer than the reviews led me to believe and I have stayed at many a hotel. I felt safe, was very comfortable and the manager, Chris, went out of his way to accommodate my family with our needs. Our bathroom had a pretty bad leak from the vent that never got fixed, but in fairness the woman at the desk that night was not... ... more

Nothing. First night found foods on the floor and had to be moved to a different room, second day no cable television or hot water, third day no hot water and left a day early to stay somewhere else. The hotel credited me my last nights stay.

Everything. The only nice part is the pool, visually. I wouldn't swim in it with all the kids swimming in it.

It is in desperate need of renovations. ... more

Everyone was very nice and it had a very nice atmopshere all around it. The breakfast even included real plates.

It was a bit noisy in the rooms but it is to be expected.

location - I was very close to the activities that we had planned. Breakfast- Hotel included free breakfast which was constantly maintained by staff,no empty baskets, trays or dishes.Kids loved making waffles. The recreational area ping pong pool table,

Our room had a amall splatter of blood on the back of bathroom door although room seemed to be clean as far as bedding, shower and counters,etc unforunately it made a very bad impression.

overall the stay was standard not impressed that the staff did not seem to acknowlege our concern of noticing the blood splatter in bathroom. If just needing a place to stay overnight and no elebraote expections this hotel will do. ... more

Walking distance to Busch Gardens, saves $15 in parking and long waits at the end of the day for the tram and to exit the parking lot. As advertised, the breakfast was hot with reasonable quality, but it was only available until 9am. 10am would be better

The hotel is somewhat old and tired, but it appears they are in a gradual update process. The room had a distinctive, unpleasant odor. The air conditioner was either on or off. A staff person had to come to the room to adjust temperature with a remote.

Our room was very clean, however the walls seemed paper thin. I don't think the people in the next room were trying to be loud, but we heard their entire conversation.

I have stayed here before and the location is great and its affordable. It could use some updating inside the rooms and pressure clean the hallways to make it look much better. Appearance is everything. Overall experience was fair and I would stay here for the price and location. Other hotels this affordable are in worse conditions. ... more

Prices are either the average per night price per room or first night of stay. You can select to display the prices with or without our estimate of taxes & fees (which may not appear on provider's booking page but will be charged at hotel checkout). Before you complete your reservation, verify the total cost on the provider's site. Prices and availability are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller
At KAYAK we don’t set prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We aggregate tons of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we don't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find on occasion that certain prices are no longer available.

More questions or if you have a bad price to report to us
Please send us an email and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
