I travel a good deal for business and a comfortable clean room is important to me. Because of the amount of travel, I am always looking for a good value. The location has both for me! The room was nice and clean they even take time for the extra touches in the room. I find the price very affordable and... More

The hotel is very clean and the decor is inviting. The staff was very friendly at every interaction. From the cookies at night to the full breakfast in the morning to the shuttle service to our cruise port - this was an overall great experience and a great value for what I paid. I highly recommend staying here!

Overall great for the price, carpet had a smell, but not unbearable... Heard few noises from loud cars passing on the highway but no problems with trucks as it's across from a truck stop... Staff was friendly and helpful with concerns and questions.. Cut myself and they even had bandages.

My husband and I were excited to stay at this hotel because of the reviews we read on the internet. We called in advance to check on the earliest time we could check-in and the fee if we arrived early from our travels and checked in early. We were advised to check with the person at the front desk in... More

My niece and her 4 kids and dog were staying there overnight while passing through Florida. We went to see them and spend the day. I was very impressed with the cleanliness of the place especially because it was a pet friendly resort. The front desk was very helpful and polite. The only amenity they had was a pool but... More

Easy access from interstate. Friendly staff. Very little road noise. Great breakfast. Clean and comfortable rooms and facility. Not a highly populated area with restaurants, but not far to drive to get to lots of selections and Busch Gardens.

The staff was great and was available for anything I needed. The room was very comfortable and quite. The eggs were a little crunchy, but everything else was wonderful. I would definitely stay there again.

Upon entering, I thought, "Oh! This place is sooo charming!" The lobby really is gorgeous and the location is relatively convenient to the Fairgrounds. However the staff was so incredibly rude, right on up to the manager. I booked a pet-friendly room only to discover -after checkin and settling in and finding the "rules" posted - that they have horrendous... More

First, thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. Yes, we do have pet rules here, however they are not as strict as you are portraying. Guests are told that as long as their DO NOT DISTURB sign is on the door, pets do not have to be crated. This is so housekeeping or anyone else does not... More
