We got the room so that it would be easy access to Busch Gardens, and that it was. However, the rooms were disgusting. The walls and doors were filthy and the doors hardly closed properly. I saw a baby cockroach crawl under my microwave!! The fridge had mildew in it, and so did the tub. I had my 2 kids... More

This Hotel is NOT WORTH the price that I paid for it. TO WHOM MAY BE GOING TO Busch Gardens or Adventure Island PLEASE READ. My ROOM NUMBER was 138. This Hotel is located in a bad neighborhood. The Hotel is outdated and dirty. The ceiling had MOLD on it (I’m seriously thinking about calling the HEALTH INSPECTOR). The TUB... More

In my opinion the best thing that could happen to this place is a bulldozer. Entire hotel is in a state of disrepair, the room stunk, the bathroom door had been smashed, room was filthy and my wife would not take her shoes off, someone's old food left in the refrigerator and 2 bags of old trash by the sliding...

We arrived after a full day at Busch Gardens with our 3 year old grandchild. The actual motel outside and in looks worn out and shabby not at all like the photos posted on Quality Inn and Choice Hotels website. Given room # 147=mold smell, the phone did not work, blood on bottom of inside bathroom door and walls, thick... More

Sketchy neughborhood. The carpets are dirty. The lamp shades are falling apart. Only 2 plugs. Tv remote won't work. The microwave unit disgusting. Everything about... More

When we checked in the personnel were apathetic at best and borderline rude. The front desk staff would not recommend where to eat. When we asked them to print out from google maps the directions to the port from the hotel she just said no and continued to read and not even look up. There was no computer to do... More

If you want to stay close to Busch Gardens and need a cheap hotel this could be it. But do not expect quality as the name says. The hotel is in quite bad shape. Not very fresh. Our room had a bad smell. However the beds were good and the bathroom was fresh and tidy. The breakfast was very simple... More

The pictures on the Choice web site were nothing like the "REAL" Hotel. I do a lot of traveling for business and need to be able to trust a good hotel chain and the advertisement that they provide. I am currently a Elite Diamond member with Choice but, I am not satisfied with the false advertisement.

This hotel would be considered an average USA road side type of hotel but does offer good breakfast. We had three rooms and two of them had problems (Broken Door lock, and Smoke and mold odors with no air conditioning remotes). The front desk person was very stressed most of the time (not sure why) and kept a bible open... More

This is hands down the most disgusting place I have ever stayed. Not only was is gross but the area was a little scary too. Even though it was so close to busch gardens, my friends and I paid for a cab rather than walk. There were ladies in and out of rooms morning and all night (and they weren't... More
