My wife tells me I make friends everywhere I go. I found this little one in my bed last night. Needless to say, I checked out and won't be back. I have spent all day Sunday hot water washing everything I had in the room with me. Hopefully, none of my clothes, shoes or bags are ruined.

Very nice, clean room with a balcony. Check in was a breeze, front desk staff was very nice and professional. The hotel is about 10-15 minutes from Busch Gardens and that was a definite plus for us. I'd stay here again.
