We selected this hotel for a quick visit to see friends. Selection was driven by pricing, reviews and its location on E Busch Blvd. The room was large and the bed and bedding comfortable as I would expect from any Holiday Inn Express. I had brought my own pillow since we drove but left it in my bag as the hotel offering was unusually acceptable. (This is always an issue for me just about anywhere I stay; I like how HIE does it. We met friends for breakfast at a local diner so did not take... Read more

Stayed here for two nights at the end of our vacation to visit Busch Gardens for a day. Excellent location, free shuttle service with Maureen which is very handy and runs when you need it so no particular timetable. We had a comfortable stay, but found the room decor 'tired' and whilst there is a no smoking policy, on arrival the hallway on the 2nd floor definitely had an odour of cigarettes...... We found the AC very noisy in our room, so much so that we switched it off on the second night... Read more

My first impression was that the outside looked like a motel. However, once I enter the room I changed my mind. The suite was spacious and the bed was extremely comfortable. My niece and nephew took advantage of the pool. The hotel is within walking distance to Busch Gardens and only a few minutes drive to the USF campus. The hotel is also conveniently located close to shopping and restaurants. Highly recommended.

Hotel: The hotel is nice and looks clean. It's your regular Holiday Inn style but then it looks fresh and also still a bit new. It's not hard to find and is just across the street from Busch Gardens. It also has a small pool you can swim in. Price: Prices are good if you also include the breakfast and the shuttle service. next to this the room is quite spacious. Room: The room we booked had 2 beds and included a whirlpool in the room, this was a nice extra we didn't anticipate on. Unfortunate ... Read more

If you're going to visit Busch Gardens - there's a lot going for this property: - Shuttle service saves you $18/day parking for the price of tipping the driver(s) - Breakfast with hot foods was also well tended. - Free parking, and inside hallway entrances - Free wifi - although our 2nd floor room had lots of spots with no coverage and my husband went to the lobby to get a better connection. - Restaurants within very short walking distance - convenient after the park (Olive Garden, Red Lobster, ...

Maybe you expect average with Holiday Inn...this particular one is only a block from Busch Gardens and is actually excellent. Well maintained, rooms excellent, overall a very good hotel...however, what distinguishes them is the "can do" attitude of the staff. Everyone is attentive and helpful. Includes front desk (no one better than Adiva Tucker) and all the van delivery drivers (continuous van delivery to Busch G). We were impressed.

The front desk guy was nice when we checked in and the place looked clean and inviting. The desk clerk made sure to tell us that they would not be responsible for any damages or lost belongings..... Kinda weird right?? We were in room 403 and had to park in the BACK of the motel. There was 1 street light and NO cameras!!!!! Again, kinda shady.....

Stayed here 2 nights ago as a 1 night stopover while visiting busch gardens. ... location is perfect as less than a mile away. Check in easy and efficient and the room was a good size and clean. With 2 kids in tow and a check in at 10pm we didn't spend much time here but worth noting only 3 towels for the bathroom instead of 4 and we couldn't find a remote to turn on tv.

Hotel has great location for Busch Gardens but doesn't care about customer service. We were told we could check in at 4. Finally, at 4:15 we were given a room and when we arrived at the room, the maid was there and said the room had been ready for over an hour. There was loud noise at the pool both of our nights; pool closes at 11. We went down both nights after 11 PM and the front desk was more interested in their shift change than in taking care of the noise. We had to threaten to call th... Read more

We stayed here for four nights while in town visiting local attractions. The hotel was convienant to Busch Gardens and taking the free shuttle saved us the hassle by not having to drive and park there. The breakfast was great however the dining room was too small to accommodate guests. The staff was very welcoming every time I passed one in the hallway.

We stayed two nights here for a Busch Gardens trip. Overall our stay was fine and the room was spacious. My only complaint would be with housekeeping. Our room needed a good cleaning and some maintenance done - there were cracked tiles in the bathroom, missing baseboards in the entrance, stains on the walls and just didn't seem very well cleaned. After checking in we found our room had no soap, shampoo or towels in the bathroom. We called the front desk twice over the course of the day and f... Read more

I would rate this a 2 1/2 if I could. My family and I stayed her for two nights to go to Busch Gardens Tampa. The only thing this hotel has going for it is it's location to the park. When we first arrived, I had mixed feelings. It seemed kind of clean, kind of dirty. The bathroom was clean. The walls in my room were not. The door and the cabinet in the bathroom seemed like they had seen better days. Our room had a sofa bed; however, we couldn't use it because it was broken when we tr... Read more

We stayed here for 3 nights at the beginning of August. It's a fantastic location for Busch Gardens - the shuttle bus is great and the lady who drives it went out of her way to be so helpful particularly when the guest washing machine broke down. The room was clean, breakfast set you up for the day and the staff on reception were always helpful.

We took our two grandsons to Busch Gardens and needed shuttle service to get to the park. This Holiday Inn Express is very close and fulfilled that need.

The staff at the hotel is very friendly and helpful, our room was clean and adequate with two queen beds which were comfortable. It was somewhat noisy, but that was probably due to the amount o...

This is our second trip to this hotel. We are from the east coast of FL and were forced to flee our homes due to Hurricane Matthew.

Check in was easy. Front desk staff was fantastic and efficient. Rooms were clean and modern and breakfast was typical for this class of hotel. Food was hot and fresh and dining area was clean. This hotel is actually 5 star for the area. Many hotels in the immediate area are a bit rundown. Oh, free shuttle to Busch Gardens park was a value add. They drop off and pick up right at the gate. You don't have to pay to park and monkey around with parking shuttles.

This Hotel was a very convenient to Busch Gardens, and was a pleasant surprise! I felt safe, you had to have your Hotel Key to access any side doors. It was a reasonable price with a Great Free Breakfast that included bacon and eggs. We were able to walk to an Olive Garden to eat supper. And BEST of all, I left my favorite blanket there, and discovered this three days later, and emailed them and they returned it to me Fed Ex!!

The shower completely wouldn't work. The hotel staff suggested that I run between another room to use the shower. And even mentioned that skipping a shower for the day wouldn't be that bad. Strange hairs were found in the bathroom. Limited parking in the front, and tough to get in and out of the parking lot.
