I was impressed on how comfortable the suite was. We were a total of 6 adults and 1 child. The king beds were very comfortable. The sofa bed is what it is...a sofa bed. The hotel room was large and comfy, with a small kitchenette area, with refrigerator, coffee maker and microwave. There were a total of 3 LCD TV's... More

Stayed at this hotel based on reviews. The reviews are right. Terrific service. Helpful and cheerful staff. Free ice cream every night. We were offered bottled water when we checked in. The rooms are what you'd expect from a Holiday Inn. So don't go in expecting a 4 star hotel. Having said that, the property and rooms are maintained extremely... More

Based on the more than raving reviews here, I chose this hotel for an overnight stay on our road trip. And the expectations were even surpassed. From the complimentary beer (and another one!) at the checkin, free ice cream for the kids, a perfectly temperated and clean pool to the very friendly and competent front desk, the hotel can match...

For the price, which was $100/night, the place was absolutely incredible. The service was impeccable - a welcoming drink when you come in, ice cream in the evening and a full breakfast in the morning. The room was huge and our king-size bed was the most comfortable both of us had ever slept in. Even the pillows were super comfy,... More

Our family has stayed in a lot of hotels and this was the best family value by far. Extremely clean. Staff was exceptionally nice. Very nice free breakfast, free ice cream at night, free drink at check-in. Kid friendly. Really a tremendous value.

My family and I stayed here from 7/13 to 7/17. It was wonderful! It is about 15 mins. from Busch Gardens. While it is located in a quiet area, it is close to many places to eat. The rooms and pool were very clean. The landscaping at the pool was lush and had a tropical feel to it. Each night... More
