The friendliest staff I have ever experienced at a hotel. They greeted us by name everyday. Good breakfast buffet that was different every day. They actually serve warm cookies at the hotel lobby all day. My husband and I felt like we were home every time we walked back to the hotel from our excursions every day.
Very nice remodeling except for 2 major things. First was the bed. Very very firm. We prefer softer, not hard as a board. Second, no more free breakfast. That was disappointing to learn. Clean room and very friendly staff.
Rooms are set up like small apartments, very nice for the price. We had a living area with a small kitchen area, a seperate bedroom, nice bathroom, 2 flat screens and a private, screened-in balcony.There was a brick wall that came up right by our balcony and a roof top under us so there wasn't much of a view at all but if you want a truely private balcony its perfect. The pool area was gorgeous with beautiful palm trees everywhere. There was a nice bar outside but it wasn't open while we were there. There are also 3 outside pool tables and a ping pong table that are free to play. The continental breakfast is okay but is basically just bagels, waffles and toast. The French toast is pretty good though. It is very close to USF and Bush Gardens but in a decent part of town and close to restaurants. DO NOT order pizza from the restaurants on the papers slid under the door, we read up on it and saw on the tourist channel that they aren't supposed to do that and they have horrible reviews and sometimes you don't even get you're food. Overall an awesome hotel for a great price. I loved it and do plan on going back as soon as possible!
