The lady that checked us in at the desk was really nice and fun, she brought us to the room, showed us around etc. Morning breakfast was nice, but not enough seating. The lady that checked us out wasn't the nicest in the world.. Room was nice. But smelled a bit musty and humid as the day progressed.

First off, let me just say that this is the first negative review I've ever given a hotel. I'm not picky and I typically think that most people who post negative reviews are either germaphobes or the type that complain about EVERYTHING no matter where they are. That being said, just... wow. This place is in seriously bad shape. Because... More

Upon arrival staff was extremely helpful and oh so pleasant. Beds and bedding was great. Unfortunately the pool closed (locked) 1hour early :-( Breakfast area too congested for wheelchair access. No waffles either.

Hotel was clean and presentable, nothing fancy. Good location for walking to Busch Gardens and they were happy for us to leave the car and hold our luggage until we returned from the park. No sign of the breakfast being available but wasn't hoping for much given what we paid.

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
