I actually liked this hotel, I wont say its the best I stayed in but it was worthy. I loved their pool and kiddie area pool. Their rooms were clean and of not there is a dollar tree and restaurants next door, across the street and all over close to this place. Not to mention real close to busch garden.... More

The hotel is ok not great but not a dive either.Just round the corner from bush gardens is perfect for the night if you are spending all day there.Rooms are dated but clean breakfast is ok good selection.For all you in the UK think travel lodge but set in the 80s

Clean, comfortable and convenient place to stay. We stayed in June 2012, and after tax payed $65. Huge pool, awesome pirate themed kids' pool, full breakfast and a fitness center. Close to many stores and attractions. Plan to stay again soon!

We got a deal on our room through Hotwire. $54 a night. After a long day at the water park, all we wanted was a place to relax and our room was wonderful. Very clean, fridge, microwave, comfy beds. Looks recently updated. We were very pleased.
