We are very pleased that Busch Gardens included this hotel in their vacation package for a comfortable stay, delicious breakfast and quick shuttle to Busch Gardens. The staff could not be more attentive, especially Erica, with this busy crowd for New Years Eve weekend. We are very happy travelers!

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.
