Stayed 2 nights so we could go to Busch Gardens. On arrival we were able to check in early, Park at Hotel (even tho it was Noon & not check in time yet) and shuttle right over to Busch Gardens. We appreciated that convenience the 1st day. We had 2 different Shuttle Drivers, 1 each day we were there & enjoyed them both. The Shuttle is a nice service & so nice not having to hassle with parking at Busch Gardens. They drop you off right at the front gate. We arrived on a Tuesday & didn't have to get back in our car until check-out on Thursday. Nice! Many restaurants within walking distance also makes it very convenient.
The hotel is new & clean. Rooms nice, beds comfy, 4 pillows on each bed to choose from. Small Fridge/Microwave in the rooms. We could see a few of the rollercoasters at Busch Gardens from our window. Breakfast was good. The boys used the pool in the evenings & thought it was fine. Had to go in to get pool towels tho, never was any at the pool. Not so convenient when your kids are in the pool already before you realize there is no towels down by the pool. Overall a very nice hotel & great location. Would stay again & recommend.
