We stayed here for a few days until we could find a place to live. We needed a few extra days. Paul was very nice and really took care of us.The room was clean and quiet. We had a pleasant stay. I would stay here again.

The electronic key did not open the door. The second pair of keys form the front desk could not do this either. There was at least one other guest of the hotel with the same problem. Waited outside the room in the heat & high humidity for maintenance to come and open the door. Nobody showed up in 10 minutes,... More

Clean rooms, decent breakfast, just stayed overnight last minute. It was a little pricy but considering it was only 1.5 miles from Busch Gardens it was ok. The staff was very accommodating and helpful after not being able to stay at the hotel we booked.

Litter outside and was never cleaned up by the time we checked out on our 2nd day. We went down for breakfast the first morning and they ran a couple of minutes late and some of the people were complaining. The woman that was working instantly got an attitude and started running her mouth complaining out loud. The food was... More

The room had a musty odor. The carpeting needed replacing. Breakfast was so-so and not too appetizing looking. My teenage son was afraid to sleep in the bed for fear of bugs. Low and behold an ant with wings was sitting onto of the sheets (termite???) I wouldn't recommend to anyone.

The furniture was dated but the room was clean and everything worked fine (except the phone). The breakfast and the internet were OK too. The pool was nice. For the price I paid ($60) I think it was fair enough.
