Loud pool music & blaring A/C unit doomed my stay
I used a free night reward from Hotels.com to stay here, and I was pretty excited that I was able to use that night to reserve a suite at this hotel. The room was clean, the beds were super comfy, and the overall setup of the suite was great! Staff was very polite as well, I enjoyed my check-in experience. Location was solid, and breakfast was really nice too! Unfortunately I didn't get a good night's sleep. Right outside my window were speakers that blasted loud music for pool guests. This is fine during the day, I suppose. But I'd been suffering for hours when finally at 10:30pm at night I had to call down to the front desk to ask them to please turn the music off. Pool closes at 10:00pm, it's dark, guests want to sleep, not call the front desk to complain. Also, the A/C unit in this suite sounded like a chainsaw. I tried turning it off, but that didn't help because about 4 times per hour, the unit "came alive" (just to gauge the room temp I guess) and it sounded like I was in Frankenstein's laboratory or something. I kept waking up to check the thermostat, double-check it was "OFF", then tried to sleep again. Repeat all night long. I hate to complain when I'm staying in a hotel, I hate to bother staff, and I also dislike writing bad reviews. But alas, between the pool loudspeakers blasting until 10:30pm and the A/C unit torturing me the rest of the night, I felt I must share my experience with others looking to stay here.

A good choice near USF and Busch Gardens
Bottom line: A good choice near USF and Busch Gardens. PROS: You could walk to Busch Gardens if you want to. Decent chain restaurants (Olive Garden etc) within walking distance. Close to USF and less expensive than some other USF-area hotels. Pets allowed. CONS: Cleanliness and maintenance details acceptable but not ideal. First floor rooms were noisy.

Just Ok
Every employee was real nice and helpful. However, breakfast selection was minimal and the room was not as clean as other properties I've stayed in. A washcloth was left in the shower, and two clumps of hair were next to the toilet and under the sink that were there before, during and after our stay. Coffee was terrible at breakfast. TV rarely worked, but I am not sure if that was within their control because it was the whole property (so we were told). The toilet in our room had a mind of its own. The maintenance man fixed it quickly, it needed a new handle, but then it wouldn't flush everytime uou used it. Overall, it was an "ok" stay, served it's purpose.

8 out of a 10
Breakfast was impressive. Lobby and hallways need cleaning as well not just the rooms. We were approached by homeless asking for spare money every time we were in the parking lot. No security!

Stayed one night. Comfy, clean and a convenient location, across the street from Busch Garden and several of the chain restaurants.
