This is a typical Holiday Inn Express, nothing glamorous or fancy. Staff was pleasant & breakfast was tasty enough (for hotel buffet food!) It's convenient to Busch Gardens & the shuttle was great to use for Howl-o-Scream. I booked this room using credit card reward points, so was expecting a bare-bones room. Much to my surprise we got a very... More

I have stayed at better Holiday Inn's before. The location is very close to Busch Gardens and they offer a van that runs about every 20-30 minutes. They have times listed but they do not stick to the schedule exactly. Parking is $12-15 dollars at the theme park I believe... and by the time you pay, park, and take the... More

For the price and closeness to Busch Gardens. We would stay again bathroom was really clean, carpets were a bit stained. Bed was very comfortable and clean. Breakfast was "ok" could have had a better selection. Over all friendly staff everyone said hello every time they saw you.

Traveling with another couple we decided to spend the day at Busch gardens. We chose the Holiday Inn because of its location and my past experiences with the chain. The hotel was very nice, rooms clean and spacious and the free hot breakfast was excellent. The bonus is that the hotel offers free shuttle to the park which is very... More

I stayed last week on Sunday and checked out Monday morning to go to Busch Gardens. I was a bone head and left my galaxy s5 behind on the bed. The minute we were entering the park I realized I left it and called. They said it wasn't there but I went back and demanded to search the room. The... More

Stayed one night to visit Busch Gardens, which is across the street. Room lovely, spotlessly clean and well equipped. Staff very welcoming, complementary breakfast not bad. Loved the free transport to the park also! Would recommend and would stay again!
