4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I did not think we would be staying here when I saw the poor shape the outside of the hotel is in, old beat up garbage cans near the parking lots, outside walls needing paint and repairs, but inside our room, it was different. New carpet, new looking furniture, nice TV, granite countertop and undermount sink has to be pretty... More

The hotel rooms were very clean and staff was very pleasant. The desk personnel were very personable and helpful when we asked for places to go when it was cold and rainy. The restaurant was nice but was cold and even the staff said they had complained to management for the customers. Food and drink prices were reasonable. I would... More

I usually rank hotels solely based on room cleanliness, amenities, and any irregularities. This hotel is clean, the pool deck is nice, the breakfast hearty, and the parking average. The customer service, however, was unlike any we have ever experienced before. Our daughter is a student nearby and we have tried all the hotels on this stretch of Fowler Avenue... More

The desk staff were very helpful. Someone walked me to my room since it is a fairly large hotel used for meetings and conferences. The location was good, especially if you wanted to go to Busch Gardens. A mall and unique movie complex was within walking distance. There were several chain restaurants nearby (a TGIF was right at the end... More

This hotel though dated has managed to keep the rooms looking clean and up to date It would take a fortune to truly update the entire complex. The on sight restaurant needs to be changed or get a better restaurant in and chef. I had a chicken dish and the breading which was flour was too heavy so it made... More

We stayed for one night under a park and cruise. There was a line when we arrived for check in and it moved a little slowly but the staff were friendly and attentive. The courtyard grounds and pool area looked very nice. We ate breakfast buffet in the restaurant and found it to be very nice. The rooms were nice... More

Had one night in this hotel as after driving 10 hours could not drive any further so it was not a first choice. Booked it on line & thought for $97 it would be ok... It was in an interesting neighborhood to say the least! The hotel was very dated & was in desperate need for a refurbishment, for nearly... More

The room was fine, basic. Pool looked nice. Front desk and airport shuttle people were great. The reviews here and armed guard concerned me, but our family enjoyed our stay and our car was just as we left it (full), 10 days later. Plenty of nearby restaurants and stores. Would stay here again.
