The stay here was very nice. It's 5min away from Bush Gardens. Erica,Paola. and Audrey were excellent in getting me settled in, especially after having a bad experience at the Days Inn; not more than 10 min away.. :)

We come to Busch Gardens every month and I have to say I love this hotel. The staff is amazing and the burger theory restaurant is always fast, friendly, affordable and delicious. Erica in the front office was beyond helpful and friendly. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. We will make this hotel a part of our habit.

Great location with lots of dining and shopping within walking distance. We went to Busch Gardens and even went on a free tour of the Yuengling factory across the street. The hotel offered a free shuttle to Busch Gardens but there was no point in using it since the park is not even a mile away, we just drove since... More

The room looked dirty. First night someone started running a leaf blower at 8:30PM in the parking lot and woke our kids up. Second night there was a wedding that was extremely loud (I would never have even thought this tiny hotel would have a ballroom). Called for towels and they never arrived. Will never stay here again.
