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.

The staff and courtyard were nicer than I expected

For the price and closeness to Bush Gardens I doubt you will find anything better, my only wish was that there were better restaurants in the area. As far as the hotel and staff they were A++++

The 2 rooms, evening reception, omelets were good. Front staff was very friendly and always tried to help. Pool was nice when it was clean, not always taken care of though.

Don't like the double beds, not offering free internet, the house keeping was spotty, didn't show up some days or came very late. They should also offer variety from day to day on the breakfast buffet, was not great after 5 days of the same thing.

There was a fire alarm and we had to walk down 5 flights of steps, once we got down, the emergency exit was LOCKED and we couldn't get out! Went back into the hotel and the alarm was cleared but still what good is an emergency exit if you can't get out?

Breakfast was amazing. Omelettes cooked to order, plus many other food choices.

They charge for parking even though your add listed 'free parking'.

All amenities were great.

The rooms were very nice. We enjoyed the separate sleeping areas. The staff was also very professional.

The bathroom and shower areas were very small.

The breakfast was very nice a little more upscale that your normal free breakfast and shuttle service is always nice.

The complementary breakfast was amazing.

It's across the street from a supermarket and there are places you can eat at as well...there's a laundry room, and gym room and most of all a pool for the adults and the kids along with like an indoor water park for children..the kids loved it.

Great location! Right around corner from Busch Gardens and Adventure Island water park (about 3 minutes!). Tons of restaurants around. TGIFridays walking distance, Five Guys across street, and several fast food. Winn dixie across street. Convenient!

Free breakfast was nasty. My husband ate it but didnt care for it, and my kids and I wouldn't touch it. Could use some minor repairs in hotel room such as new bathroom doors, etc. Minor repairs needed on exterior. But pool area was best. Needs hot tub!

Overall good experience. Staff was friendly, the pool area was by far the best but a jacuzzi would have been nice to rest my tired feet after theme parks. The pirate ship area was awesome. Kids had a good time. Great location. Just needs some minor repairs here and there. Otherwise, great. We will stay there again for sure.

The staff was very friendly. It was a breeze to check in and out of the hotel. There was a lot of food items to pick from and the pool area was nice. Very close to everything! Lots of open space and was able to change rooms if we wanted to. I'll go back.

Ice makers weren't working on all the floors. Lots of people walking around. The hotel needed lots of painting and plastering and lots of repairs. The elevator isn't working too well and you have to ush the button to get out of the elevator.

For the cost of the room and all the places you can go to it is a reasonable place to stay. It looks just like what the pics have.

The room was clean but the furniture needed a little upgrade. You have a good breakfast choice unlike other hotels that only gives you a muffin and coffee.

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.

The free breakfast, however basic, was good. There could have been a better selection. The room, and bathroom were very clean. We were happy with the location to Busch Gardens. We will definitely stay again, when in the area.

The staff wasn't very helpful or friendly. You should be prepared for them to be very rushed, impersonal, and short with you.

All in all, we feel you will be happy with your experience. The hotel is quite kid friendly, and they will be kept busy with the game room and pool. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The breakfast is FREE, but early times!

It was close to where we were going for our attractions and restaurants were just outside our door.

The smoking room was so bad we had to buy air freshener just to be able to walk in our room and the blankets smell like it was never washed because even the blankets got fumes of smoke.

I liked how it was close to everything, more maintenance needed in rooms. Our a/c unit was not that well. the shower was handle was broken. No coffee pot in our room. Television control didnt work.

Prices are either the average per night price per room or first night of stay. You can select to display the prices with or without our estimate of taxes & fees (which may not appear on provider's booking page but will be charged at hotel checkout). Before you complete your reservation, verify the total cost on the provider's site. 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 tons 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 rentals 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.

More questions or if you have a bad price to report to us
Please send us an email and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
