Saw the reviews AFTER I had already made reservations. Thought we would just have to see for ourselves. My family and I spent 4 nights at Baymont. The first morning, we had to take cold showers as there was NO hot water. Also, when I tried to adjust the shower head, it fell off! Maintenance did take care of the... More

We booked our trip through Expedia and so could not remove ourselves from these premises, except at great cost. Until the managers make major changes, I would avoid this facility at all costs. Negatives include: Dirty, smelly carpet Noisy air conditioner/heating units Shoddy housekeeping Worn, thin bedding Inattentive, uncaring management Only four hangers; no luggage rack And worst of all:...

We were very dissappointed with our stay at this hotel in mid-March 2005. Our room was an Ovations King - was of a good size, had a nice bed and included a fridge and microwave. We had some issues with the hotel and room: - Exterior corridors were dark and dirty - Only one of two elevators was in operation... More

Place was very good, clean and loads for breakfast. Pool area ok. If you want the busch gardens entrance on foot, walk down the perimeter past Burger king and McDonalds on your right and there is a gate about 200 yards. We asked at reception and they gave us driving directions so we walked 3/4 away around the perimeter and... More

We stayed one night at this hotel in late February 2005. The person at the front desk was friendly and helpful. Check-in went very smoothly. When we went to our room, we found that we had no towels. We called the front desk, and though it was well after 5 p.m., we were told that the rooms were still being... More
