Couple's retreat

We loved staying at this hotel. It was nice, clean, and the staff were overly friendly and helpful. About 30 minutes from Clearwater Beaches and a lititle less to Busch Gardens.

Skip Hogan's Beach. Our server was great, but everything else about the place was terrible. Hostess was rude, place was rowdy and unorganized, food wasn't anything fantastic, and there is 5$ mandatory valet parking to get in.

Great Experience

We booked this hotel for 4th of July and we had a great experienced. The location was perfect ( close to a lot great restaurant) and has its own full size coffee shop to hang out , view was amazing ( we stayed in 9th floor has already great view ), service in valet and check in , bar ( margarita was awesome compare to a lot of bar i went to , restaurant ( c/o Kevin ) was excellent, food was excellent, room was perfect size and very clean ( no distinct odor, smells fresh) bathroom was modern and clean and the whole property was awesome. They give you $5 gift card that you can use towards any purchase within the property if you don't want them to clean your room.The only downside was no complimentary internet access , no complimentary breakfast and cant access the refrigerator bec if you touch the content you will be charged but they can provide one if you need one just call the front desk. Valet parking or self parking charged you $5 , a lot better than other hotel , they charge more than that although some hotel are free if you are a guest. Over all, we had excellent experience and we definitely recommend this hotel

terrible experience

I must admit that I am extremely disappointed. The hot water in the shower kept going out and although the staff seemed friendly, I encountered poor management due to the fact that the management staff seems to lack customer service skills. I even overheard one of the staff mention that they were told by the manager that day would not honor any discounts because they we're not making money that night do to low occupation. on top of that my credit card was overcharged and the manager seemed unwilling to fix the situation as well as he gave me attitude. Horrible!

ISOLATED

There is nothing within walking distance.If you park your car you must take the hotel shuttle to very limited locations.Restaurant only had very expensive buffets during our stay.We had to take the shuttle to have meals. Some wait times to be picked up was excessive.
