This place is disgusting. Looks nice on the outside. Smells like old people a day the lady at the front desk had some bowel disorder and was making me sick. I guess it used to be a holiday inn. It was probably really nice in the late 80s and 90s. Woke up in the morning with either a huge bed... More

Clean room - very spacious! Great staff. Centrally located near Busch Gardens and the interstate. They have a shuttle bus available for the amusement park. I'd definitely stay there again if in the area.

Floors were dirty. I had to move a nightstand to access outlets and it was filthy. Under the bed had not been vacuumed in ages. Overall ambiance is that of a welfare hotel. Included breakfast was a joke. Cold cereal and toast. For 100.00$ a night I expect better than that.
