The place is new but will not stay nice if they don't do a better job servicing the rooms. Good breakfast, nice pool, and great service from desk and Maint. crew. The hotel isn't in the best neighborhood, close enough to walk to Busch Gardens but not a good idea.

This hotel is new. Opened in October 2008. The hotel is Close to Busch Gardens and the Yuengling Brewery. There are many restaurants in close proximity that are in walking distance. Denny's next door gives hotel guest 20% with the key card. Beware of the neighborhood, it is not the best. The hotel provides a shuttle to Busch Gardens but... More

My wife and I and our 8-year old daughter ended our vacation in Florida by going to Busch Gardens after a week at Disney.
