Room was very dirty, especially the bathroom. Clock radio was broken, vent cover in bathroom fell down while taking a shower, holes in the wall stuffed with toilet paper (yes... toilet paper) and stained towels. The only thing this hotel had going for it was the location. It is right next to Busch Gardens but I would not recommend staying... More

I travel often and know that you get what you pay for, that being said, this place isn't worth 3 bucks! As soon as I walked into the check in area, I was blasted in the nose with a horrible sewage smell. I mean horrible! How the rude front desk guy, Larry, could sniff that all day is beyond me....

I had gone for a training and stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. First I thought it's Days inn and it would be just an ordinary hotel since the rates were excellent. But once I reached the place the hotel had nice and clean rooms and service was really good. The front desk guy was very helpful in giving... More

The rooms we stayed in could definitely use some attention to them especially in the bathroom - areas - the volume on the tv was not adjustable - when the boys went to the front office there was some chaos between the staff and manager and not some nice words spoken - also seemed somewhat unorganized for check in -...

All you smelled from the parking lot was marijuana. I went... More
