The purpose of our trip was to visit USF for my son and while we were there we went to Busch Garden, Adventure Island and LEGOLAND. Our check in was okay, the lady at the front desk need to put on a "happy" face and be little more customer friendly, maybe it was just me. The best part was the pool, breakfast and the convenience to everything. The room however, was quite disappointing. The bathroom smell like they had sewage problems and the vent was connected to another guest room where we could hear conversations. The paint was chipping off the bathroom walls and the floor was not cleaned very well. The towels were not "white" and I had them replaced until I had some that didn't have stains. The bed felt like I was getting bit by something. I had to spray the room with Lysol. If they upgraded or remodeled the rooms it would definitely be a 3.5 - 4 star rating. But the location was great, after coming back from an all day adventure we didn't have to drive far to return to our room. My kids loved the pool area, they were able to enjoy the day out and hit the pool at night. Breakfast was an added plus, they served "hot" breakfast, eggs, sausage, bacon, pancakes and grits. It was more than just a continental breakfast. In the evening the restaurant turned into a bar as well I didn't have to drive to have a drink. I would return to the hotel...I just wish they would do remodel their rooms.
