The 1st room they gave us had an awful smell. The 2nd room was ok. The beds were not very comfortable as they sagged, but were ok. The restaurant served free breakfast for guests and was barely edible. The property itself was clean and the staff was excellent. We used a coupon from a travel book which saved us money... More

The hotel has a great location, easy to get to parks, shopping and dinng. The rooms were nice, nothing fancy. We had a super late check-in and that has been a big problem for us in the past at other hotels, but Paul made arrangements for us and it went very smooth. The staff was super friendly and helpful.

Checked in and stayed for one night. Front desk was busy but 2 person staff was moving the line fast. Hotel was packed with a lot of young military kids in uniform, maybe an ROTC graduation. The place is really big we and we didn't know it, so, we had to walk pretty far to our room. When you check... More

This hotel seems to have lost the will to live. Ideally located for Bush Gardens the rooms are a good size but vey dated. The passages to the room are filthy with garbage left by the residents not being cleaned. In order to get to out room we had to walk through crowds of smokers congregating outside of the rooms....

I reluctantly booked a three night stay at this hotel for a trip with friends to Busch Gardens. Upon walking into the lobby which is nicely decorated I had high hopes and for what the room would look like. However, the lady at the front desk made sure not to make eye contact with me until she was ready. With... More

Checked in late at night. After 3 calls to the front desk earlier they still didn't have it correct. But, we got it fixed. We had 14 rooms. 4 of them had bugs. Cockroaches. They sprayed one room and the bugs were back within 24 hours. But. It is Florida. Breakfast was OK. Rooms need updating badly. Lobby and pool... More

We stayed at this hotel for a week. Nothing huge went wrong during our stay but I do have some comments and concerns regarding the hotel. The rooms were decent. We had a double queen sized room for 4 people and we managed quite nicely. It is nice the room has a fridge and microwave. Half the staff were awesome... More
