Bad smell in the hall ways. The lady at the front desk was not nice. She was talking to me like if I were a 5 year old... "Did you hear me...". I made the mistake to book the hotel without reading reviews. The price was lower than other hotels. The final bill was higher than the quote ($3). $3... More

Walking down the hall, I immediately noticed I was in a low budget place. Decided to continue on since the rate was a little lower than others. Walked into the room and was taken aback by the odor. The comforters had burn holes. The door between rooms was held shut with a zip-tie. The sliding glass door that you use... More

That's right. If you want luxury, pay $200 per night. If you want quality, this hotel will work for you. On the negative side (if it really matter to you, read the first sentence again): 1. The clock was unplugged, so I had to plug it in and reset it, but it worked. 2.The bedside lamp had a broken bulb... More

The beds were great here and the service wonderful. The front desk lady was very helpful. Our family lives nearby. Pool wasn't heated, but room was large. The lady that worked the front desk from the islands was super nice and helpful. Thanks again for a great stay!

Had booked 2 rooms slight mix up checking in and getting the keys as rooms not next to each other. Finally went up to the rooms which were not joining but around the corner from each other, our door looked... More

Stayed there 1/16-17. Conveniently disconnected to Choice Hotels customer service 5 times when I tried to contact them in regards to how filthy this property is. See photos I uploaded. There is no excuse for how poorly this property is maintained. My children were not allowed to remove their socks and showered with sandals one. The service from Choice Hotels... More

We booked here using points based on location alone. We only wanted a place to spend the night since we were spending the entire day at Busch Gardens, and you couldn't find a closer place than this! It was literally across the street from the parking lot, and by parking at the QI and walking we saved the $15 parking... More
