The place is very nice. Very friendly staff and willing to help with whatever you need. Rooms were spacious and clean. The food was very good and the staff in the restaurants were very thoughtful and polite. We had three of our grand children with us and one of them was very young, they brought out a couple of things that they thought the toddler would like. I have never seen that happen before. They went out of their way to make our stay very pleasant. We will definately stay there again.

From the time we entered the Embassy, the staff was very friendly and helpful. Melissa, at the manager's reception, was great!!! They have a bus that takes you to Busch Gardens and drops you off by the check in area, and picks you up at the same place. It was great not having to get into a hot car or pay the parking fee. We tipped them good and they were great!!! Everything was great except the omelet for breakfast. It was paper thin with no body to it. There's plenty other choices, so we ... Read more

The room was great! Comfy bed, nice amenities and we slept well. The hotel is beautiful with lots of greenery, fountains, etc. The complimentary breakfast was disgusting. I was shocked as I have stayed at many Hilton properties. The only good thing about the breakfast was the coffee. The food on the hot bar was cold. The oatmeal was lumpy, the grits were runny, the pastries were stale and hard. I know this because I kept trying different items, trying to find something edible. Waffle House woul... Read more

We chose this hotel due to its proximity to Busch Gardens. The hotel was packed with Memorial Day travelers the weekend we were there. Still, check-in was quick and the hotel staff were all courteous and friendly. The rooms were like most other Embassy Suites we have visited. As a family of four, we love the suite aspect of Embassy Suites. It is nice to have some space to spread out in the room. The suite was clean but shows its age a bit. Breakfast the next morning was very crowded but t... Read more

Usually always look forward to staying at an Embassy Suites but this time was definitely a let down. Upon entering the hotel you could see that it was worn down by the carpets. This continued up to our rooms. Very dated carpet and designs. Three of our pillow cases had make up on them and we had multiple bottles of conditioner and no shampoo.

Great hotel, great location, very family oriented hotel. I would definitely come back to this location. I was there with my boyfriend for a couple get away. But while we were there we were very impressed with the Friday and Saturday night movies for the kids in the atrium. It's a great idea that other hotels should take up. It keeps the guests in house to enjoy managers receptions and or the resturant.

We had the Presidential Suite, which is large with a large well appointed bathroom. The decor of the hotel is dated and a bit worn. We like this location for checkups and the staff is nice etc. we paid $350 per night and that is not value for the decor of entire property. Glad to be there for convenience to Moffitt.

Came here for work and the hotel stay was great. The location of the hotel is not very convenient to a lot of things to do, but the hotel was nice. The best part about the stay was the customer service at the breakfast buffet. Gabriel is very attentive to your needs and goes out of his way to make sure you are satisfied. His hospitality makes you want to return for another stay.

Nice, comfortable, clean hotel situated just at the edge of the USF campus. Suites are spacious and nicely appointed; my stay included a complimentary breakfast (buffet with eggs, sausage, potatoes, oatmeal, cereal, made-to-order omelettes, etc.) as well as decent (most of the time) in-room wifi. There is also a happy hour in the evenings in the big atrium area on the ground floor starting at 5:30 where you can get free beer (Bud or Michelob) or wine and some snacks.

The Embassy Suites USF is a nice hotel based solely on its location. On a recent visit during the holidays, we left the rooms at 10:30 AM and returned at 22:00 to find out not a single towel was left by housekeeping. Not too bad a problem after a day out visiting theme parks with kids under 90F+. Nothing difficult to be fixed. But after over 1,5 hours waiting, I went down the front desk, and instead of help I was rudely treated by a clerk, and got a nice explanation by her supervisor of how ... Read more

The hotel is my 'go to' location when on business in Temple Terrace. Each visit is always consistent in it's service and amenities. If there is a drawback it is that it's location near Busch Gardens and FSU lends itself to a consistently much larger young clientele. I have never had an issue, but it a noteworthy item for those who may care. In addition, they now charge for parking which seemed a bit of a money grab.

Our family of 4 was very comfortable during our stay. We enjoyed the relaxed, leisurely breakfasts and Gloria took great care of us. The cooked to order items seemed to be better than those on the buffet. The room was an older decor, but it was clean, and the bed may well be the most comfortable one that I have ever slept on. We never had to wait long for an elevator. All of the staff members that we encountered were pleasant and helpful.

This ES is the atrium design which allows the sounds of the gathering space below to travel up to the rooms. If you are in the bedroom, it is fine as you can close the bedroom door for extra quiet. However, if you are utilizing the sofa bed, you can hear a lot of sound. I think though that it's just typical of most ES The breakfast buffet was well attended by the staff even though it was crowded with several cheer groups.

First, you cannot beat the location and ease of getting to Busch Gardens. The Embassy is maybe 1.5 miles from the Busch Garden's parking lot, better yet you make a right out of the hotel entrance and shortly thereafter, minus waiting for a couple of stop lights, you will be turning into the parking lot. We arrived early, and our room was not ready; however, we were given access to the pool, game room, and business center; thank you for that. The atrium of the hotel (Lobby) was a typical Embassy ...

Beds were very old and uncomfortable staff was inexperienced and overall cleanliness and smell from this hotel left much to be desired. The sofa bed was barely useable with the springs of the mattress produding. Room had a musty smell.

This hotel reminded me of one of the old motor lodges from the 80s that someone had placed inside a hotel with a large atrium and restaurant in the bottom. It was a mash up of features. We had a front door with a floor to ceiling window looking out to the railing in front of our room that looked down into the atrium. It had a living area, small table and king bedroom which was nice - travelling with 2 teenagers - but the room looked (and smelled) like my grandmothers house. Very dated. Expe... Read more

There is no better location than this facility for USF! Front desk staff was courteous and helpful and breakfast team was fantastic. That's where the positive stops. I received an email prior to arrival from the AGM. So surprised to receive this that I responded immediately and told him that we were a family of 6 several days in advance. No record of this when I checked in but I will say the sodas and towels I requested extra from the app were there. Rooms were beat and please gently sit in... Read more

We stayed here before a day trip to Busch gardens and had a great stay. Managers reception was great. Offering more than just chips and salsa but even fresh fruit and cheese which was a welcome addition!! Breakfast was good, typical embassy suites made to order with all the fixins' however they were very well staffed which made the line almost nonexistent and tables were always clean and readily available. The hotel was quite the only down side was that only one of the three hotel elevators ... Read more

Hotel is always clean, staff is always very friendly and willing to help. I used the digital key for my room and it was easy to use and very convenience. I did not have to stop at the front desk when I arrived at the hotel. I used this hotel for work purposes, it is only 5 minutes from work, but for those of you that would like to go to Bush Gardens it is also a good hotel to stay at. Breakfast is amazing and they also offer happy hour.

This hotel is not up to an average standard of cleanliness for business travel. The carpet, floors, remotes, and countertops are sticky and appear unkept to the touch. Rooms are actually all adjoining, so smells and sounds carry between rooms. My "neighbor" had a baby and smoked marijuana all hours of the day, so I heard the baby all night and my clothes stunk like weed. I complained multiple times but nothing was ever done.

Two out of three elevators were down for two days and the place was packed with lines to get in. Some staff acted as if we were a bother when asking questions. I had to call three times to get my reservation correct as the emails sent to me were incorrect. Asked for the Manager, she was snippy. Then asked for GM, left a message and he never returned my call. Not very good customer service!

It was a dark and stormy night when we recently arrived at the hotel. The staff was welcoming and efficient and changed our room immediately because of a chirping fire alarm. Our only complaint with the hotel was that the a/c only had two modes-freezing or off. We really enjoyed the complementary Happy Hour from 5:30p.m until 7:00p.m. Because the tropical storm was raging we had dinner at the hotel and the hamburgers were excellent.

This hotel has all you need for your stay. I would stay her again. The workout facilities have a great selection of equipment. There is also a shuttle that can take you to local restaurants or shopping.

My family loves to stay at this Embassy suite location for the past 6 years! It's so convenient to attend functions at USF and Busch Gardens! They even give you complimentary shuttle service to the park!

The location is close to the hospital. It is clean and the staff is welcoming. Would recommend if you or a family member is having treatments there. Convenient location and easy access from the freeway. Complementary Breakfast and evening social hour is a plus. There is also a restaurant & bar on site which does a good job as well.

Stayed in Tampa for 2 nights at this Embassy Suites which is actually located on the campus of USF (University of South Florida). We didn't know that when we booked but saw that it was near Busch Garden so booked our stay hear. Hotel was clean and staff were friendly and courtesy. The hotel is definitely older and showed its age a bit but pretty well kept and maintained. Rooms are suites with 2 double beds and a pull out sofa. Complimentary cooked to order eggs breakfast buffet and evening ... Read more

The facility is indeed tired and in need of updating. The garden/stream is out dated. The carpeting reeks, the furniture is old, but the pillows, breakfast and lava tigon are good.. It would be helpful and cost saving to raise the temp of air coditioning, had to bring more fall ware to stay comfortable. The constant running , and I mean constant, of the air condition airs is distracting in the back rooms.

The hotel is clean and the staff is amazing. The atrium is so pretty. My only complaint would be the wifi. I was on the 6 th floor and could not get wifi in the bedroom. This was frustrating because I couldn't surf the Internet or check email in bed. I know, first world problem. Breakfast of eggs and bacon was good. My husband had the pancakes and said they were cold. The pool area was clean and inviting. There you have it!

My husband and I stayed here for a weekend web conference and it was really nice. The lobby was very unique and they serve free breakfast in the morning. And not just bagels and pastries, a full cooked breakfast! The staff was also very helpful and friendly.

Hard review to write because the staff is so great. The first room I was given had a sticky black stain about the size of a plate next to the bed. It actually made a sound when I lifted my foot (glad I had shoes on!), got a new room, that night and the next morning the entire hotel had no hot water, the heater/boiler was broken. My coworker had to move to another room because of ants. The restaurant is pretty bad/slow. I ended up leaving 4 days early to go to a Marriott close by. With all that s... Read more

This is a nice hotel whose real strength is the staff. These guys are always right there to help with whatever you need. The breakfast is OK, especially if you get the cooked breakfast and I ate at the restaurant for the first time this trip. For the restaurant, the selection isn't huge, but they do everything right. The rooms are fine, especially with the front room - the hallmark of the Embassy Suites group. Just beware that some of the ACs leave a little to be desired, They can be NOISY... Read more
