Clean hotel, personable staff, free breakfast, and convenient to area restaurants, shopping, and attractions, including a free shuttle to within 3 miles of the hotel (encompassing MOSI and Busch Gardens).

Access was a bit hairy at times due to traffic, but that is not the hotel's fault. Look for a side street access on N Malcolm McKinley Dr, which is not as busy as E Fowler Dr.

Really enjoyed our room and our stay!

The staff was very pleasant and the shuttle service was most helpful going to and from Busch Gardens.

Some of the furnishings were a bit dingy.

The free breakfast was very good and had a nice variety that we all could enjoy.

Nothing - couldn't wait to leave

This is a pet-friendly hotel. The night we stayed, it was like living in a dog kennel. Carpets, pillows and mattresses all stained - afraid to touch anything. Quality of breakfast food sub-standard (cheap off-brands). Some LaQuintas are decent - this one is not. Have stayed at this one several times and it keeps getting worse. Probably will not stay again.

The hotel was very clean, smelled nice, and the staff was cordial. The free breakfast had great variety. There were waffles, yogurt, bagels with multiple topping options, a selection of cold and hot cereals, fresh fruit, coffee, juices, and hard boiled eggs. Housekeeping did a great job every day. I always came back to a turned down room. Having the mini fridge was helpful because it allowed me to save on restaurant expenses by bringing my own food. The air conditioning continuously worked well so I always came back to a cool room after being out in the Florida summer heat.

There was no shuttle service available, even to immediately close locations as USF across the street. There was a wet patch on the floor of my room between the far bed and the window that perpetuated all four nights but there was nothing on the ceiling so it must have been coming from under the floor.

OK hotel for the money. Was there the weekend before the GOP convention so there was a lot of activity. Staff seemed overwhelmed. Not particularly nice, but not particularly bad either - just OK.

I stayed at the Embassy for two reasons; it was close to Busch Gardens and the Happy Hour was Free! It was a little pricey but that's what you get on a Spring Break and Easter weekend. I would like to go back but during a cheaper time of the season. I reccommend this hotel :)

This hotel made me feel welcomed. The staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was great. It was close to major attractions and shopping area. My biggest concern was the hotel was dirty form the enterance, to the elevator, to the bedroom. There was some construction going on, but this did not have anything to do with the dirty conditions of the hotel. I feel for such a beautiful hotel the conditions do not measure.

If you like railroad tracks and trains blowing their horns between 11:30 and 1 in the morning then this is the place for you. The staff was nice and overall it was clean. You need to call ahead for someone to press the button for the elevator it is amazingly slow. Plan on eating breakfast somewhere else if you want it fresh.

The breakfast was the only thing liked.

There was mold in the room I stayed in and needed extra towels, I had two other people with me. I went to tell them about it and they said to come back in the morning to tell the manager. So I did. The manager on duty wrote it down and took my name and number. Then proceeded to ask if I wanted compensation for it, yeah...a bit. So I'm hoping their general manager will call. I highly doubt it. 2 out of 5 stars.

Location was great. We could watch the fireworks shows at Busch Gardens from our balcony or the pool. The breakfast was decent and the staff was friendly. The pool was nice and was open late....a nice cool off after walking around the park all day. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. Walking distance to several restaurants.

We wish that the hotel offered a shuttle to the park entrance. I would gladly pay the hotel something rather than pay the 17 bucks to park and still have to walk pretty far at Busch to the tram. We did try to just walk directly from the room to the park but with small kids it was kind of long.(about a mile). That's not any fault but our own ambition. We still had fun.

Price was okay and location. New flat screen T.V.

This hotel was average at best. Too much mold in the bathroom and it could use an upgrade. Had a slight mildew smell witch i had to get air fresheners for. I stayed in two different rooms. One room had a microwave and mini fridge. The second one did not.

This hotel is so so for a quick overnight stay. For a vacation, no. One women with housekeeping was nice and accomodating.

We found roaches in our room, the area in which it was located did not feel safe. I found a bee on my towel, the room had an odor. The front desk worker had an slight attitude, I was not happy. Wouldn't choose this again!

Prices are average price per night of stay and may not include taxes and fees. "Total" includes our estimate of the taxes and fees. Please verify the total cost on the provider's site before you complete your reservation. Prices and availability are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller
At KAYAK we don’t set prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We aggregate tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we don't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car hires can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find on occasion that certain prices are no longer available.
