Very nice people, comfortable and quiet room. Comfortable bed, one of the lamps did not work and another was missing a light bulb. Food provided in the morning eggs, sausage and waffles. There are not many restaurants in the immediate are. If you drive North on Dale Maybry about 5 miles you will find plenty of good restaurants, including Bonefish... More

This hotel is nice but our first room was filled with the smell of cigarette smoke. It was so bad that even our toddler exclaimed stinky! I would think the maid would have recognized this and reported it. It made me question how clean the rooms really are. The staff immediately moved us and apologized even giving our children cookies... More

We arrived and the staff was on the ball working through adverse weather and a computer glitch but they checked us in and our granddaughter was able to get the required time at the pool to tire her out and peace and quiet was the order of the night. The breakfast was just right an all was well on the... More

My wife son and I stayed here for six nights and were very happy with our stay. The management and staff were very friendly. Room was very clean. Breakfast was more than needed. We would most definitely stay here again.

First off, this hotel is in the straight up ghetto! Yes, there are alot of restaurants, etc nearby, but it's definitely in a sketchy part of town. We were visiting Busch Gardens, and the drive to/from made me uneasy! The staff is excellent and very helpful. The breakfast was average (if you like rubber eggs and fake sausage), but its... More

Clean, comfortable hotel. Staff great, rooms large and well appointed. Breakfast great with homemade waffles, continental style but with eggs and sausage as well. Close to Hard Rock Casino(8 mi away). Large common area and our room had a microwave and little refrigerator. Restaurants close bye and easy access.

I don't know if it was the quiet room and location, the good, light-blocked drapes or the comfortable bed with nice pillows, but I had the best rest here that I can ever remember having a hotel room. Breakfast was typical for this class of hotel, but here's where this place stood out. It was crowded, so my wife and... More

Spent the night there after finding this gem on Price Line. We had a great time here and although everything wasn't perfect we slept like logs. Our room could have used a little more elbow grease as far as the cleaning, but it wasn't anything that would scare you. The hair dryer died after about 3 min of working, but... More
