... truly enjoyed ourselves there last year and felt totally at home! We can't wait to go to the "Crab Bag" and have a "crabby experience"!!! All I can say is, crabs, shrimp and oysters you better hide because we are coming...
For now, we are slowly driving up...with of course, a stop in Richmond, Virginia to see Alexandra!
This should be a very happy week!
... of the Tampa Bay. I drive five minutes and I am on Bayshore Boulevard, the Country's longest (4 mile) walkable sidewalk that lines the Tampa Bay. This has truly been an eyeopening and amazing experience so far, and can't wait to see what the future holds for me here in Florida.
If you have never travelled here, it definitely is a place you want to see. I don't think people know how beautiful our country is. You can truly be "on vacation" here without leaving the country.
Back home today. Didnt have wifi access while in England on the boat so couldnt post. Too busy and tired last 3 days in Scotland Wrote up experiences each day though and will post a few at a time shortly It was a great and different adventure Now on to planning for ...
Before heading to Busch Gardens, we enjoyed some of the amenities of our campground here outside Tampa. We are staying at a vast campground next to an even larger RV dealer. These guys sell all types of units, from tent trailers to luxury coaches. They have a restaurant at the dealership (free to campers) and seemingly hundreds of employees, all of whom ...
It is bright and sunny as the plane lands. Delores is waiting in the airport and thank God that I only have a roll aboard. Delores meets me at the airport, and we soon meet Suzi. It us amazing how little time affects these two lively and lovely ladies. We drive to St. Pete Beach and check into our amazingly cute condo! Delores did a great job finding a place right on the beach! We spend the day settling in and buying supplies, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hyatt Place Busch Gardens Tampa
My sons and I stayed in the hotel in April 2004 and chose this one due to proximity to Busch Gardens.
The Good - free, hot and cold breakfast buffet
The Bad - very wet smell in the room. even after requesting a room change, the 2nd room had a damp smell. Bathroom toletries looked as though they had been re-used. Very noisy in the hotel. The pool was also dirty.
My sons had now nicknamed Amerisuites " Ameri-SWEATS". the family we were traveling with changed hotels after the first night. We were stuck!!
Would never stay at this location again--
WESTIN Hotels have my business since that time.
M.R.S. - Oak Park, Illinois
I recently stayed at the Amerisuites for 2 nights for a business trip. After reading the reviews I was a little leary but I was pleasantly surprised.
Yuck! Poor value, filthy rooms
We stayed during Feb vacation with two children. The suite was not as advertised, there is no divider between master bedroom and kitchen/living area. We also had overflowing toilet issues and maintenance cleaned up with our bath towels without mopping with disinfectant. The rooms and carpets were dirty and smelly before that.
Breakfast was just ok, not up to their competitors. For over $125 a night I expected more - I wouldn't stay there again.
Good 3-star budget hotel
I stayed at this hotel for one night. We booked on Hotwire.com and when we arrived (@ 11:00pm) we were given a suite. The desk clerk was very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and quite large. We ate the breakfast and it was good..they had eggs and sausage along with the usuals (cereal, pastries, bagels). We went @ 8:00am and it wasn't busy but when we checked out @ 9:30 it was very busy! I am usually picky about the hotels I stay in, but this one met my expectations.
We stayed there for two nights in mid December. The hotel looked great from the outside and the lobby was nice. They gave us a smoking room and we DON'T SMOKE (they never asked what we wanted). The wireless internet connection was very weak. The rooms, however, were quite spacious and liveable. Be aware of takeout menus in the room. We ordered from a place called BONELLAS...worse food I have had in years. They took about an hour to deliver. The meatballs were small and overcooked, ham was boiled and pasta smelled old. They used BACON BITS for bacon. Anyway, Amersuites is only worth it if you get a room for half price on PRICELINE!!!!
Good 'park' hotel
The hotel looks immaculate from the outside and the lobby is spectacular.
However, the room we stayed at had the "wet" smell. Found out it was the AC. Not a place for rest...very noisy...doors slamming kids/people talking loud etc...at 7am....not a true Vacation place.
Breakfast was OK...staff were not overtly helpful like in the Caymans or Bahamas...they were more mediocre here. Price of phone calls...outrageous.
Besides the above negatives...great hotel especially for hitting the parks. Pool was clean and nice...room service above average.
I would stay there again if we were visiting Busch Gardens, then find a more high end hotel to sleep in late!
The good the bad and the ugly
I recently stayed at the busch gardens amerisuites for two nights on business.
The good: free hot and cold breakfast, free internet, close to theme park(not very relevant to my trip but might be to others).
The bad: small fitness center, unusually low bed, limited channels, hot and cold water sometimes backwards, suites not really true suites (not separating the bedroom and living area).
The ugly: toilet trouble for both myself and my colleagues who styed in other rooms (they did respond quickly), stained carpets, room was damp (carpet, bed) even my clothes were damp the next day after I hung them up.
My husband and 9 year old daughter stayed here for 3 nights in March 2004. The first night we checked in after 10:00 p.m. and our requested room type was not available. They adjusted the rate (lowered it) and put us in another room and assured us the next day while we were playing at Busch Gardens that they would move us into the correct room (suite with a king bed and sofa sleeper).
Back in 2003 we stayed at this hotel for Howl-O-Scream. The experience was so miserable that they gave us a free night to make up for it. The second time, July 25, 2004 was even worse. Where to begin? Rude/Incompetent front desk staff...bathroom door handle broke off...rust/mold all over the bathroom...remote that did not work with the TV...pillows I wouldn't let my dog sleep on...smelly room...I could go on, but I don't want to waste any more time than I already have with this hotel. To top it off, the manager was "out filling her tires" when we asked to speak with management during checkout. Whatever you do, don't go to this hotel!
Stayed here last summer. Had a confirmed reservation with guaranteed late arrival, but room was given away. "Rollaway" bed stood on end, had no sheets on it. Sheets tattered and torn. Mattresses mushy. Room in poor condition. Vellux blankets were washed so many times all that remained was rubber. Tub leaked. Loose door handle in bathroom. Did receive the second night free--that's the only good thing I can say about it. I'm sure there are better places to stay elsewhere.
