All is what you would expect from Holiday Inn Express + free shuttle to/from The park. Ample Bfast. No one in the "heated" pool - maybe replace the heating element ? Overall a good value and a nice stay. Plenty of restaurants close by and some within a quick walk. I would stay again and recommend for value / location... More

Special thanks to front desk personnel, housekeeping and to Cathy, Mary and Raquel who went out of their way to assist us and made this stay a memorable one. The hotel's location was close to our relatives and shopping, making it very convenient for us. Amenities were excellent, abundance of breakfast items, decent pool to relax in, and comfy beds.

There was a bit of a hiccup with our booking. Although we had booked six months ago, the hotel was over booked and they wanted to move us elsewhere. However, after some friendly conversation we managed to stay. We selected this hotel for its proximity to Busch Gardens. Although a free shuttle bus service is available to the park which... More

This was a great place to stay while visiting Busch Gardens. All Staff were helpful and welcoming. Sam the shuttle driver was great, and the ladies keeping breakfast stocked were awesome. Very clean rooms and decent breakfast. Bedding nice- only reason that I gave it 4 instead of 5 is that the beds were too soft. Nice stay for a... More

This hotel was extremely close to Busch Gardens and many restaurants...but was a good distance from other shopping and sights. The breakfast was great bacon, sausage, fruit, cereal, and more!

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.
