Booked a family room 2 days before we were going to Busch Gardens and Adventure Island water park for a couple of days. Having driven up from Bradenton arrived at 09.15 and went in to see if could leave car there, go to Busch Gardens and check in later. Not a problem was the answer and we could check in as well as rooms were ready, then you can use the hotel courtesy shuttle to the park. We were in the park by 10 am. Last shuttle was about 9.30 but stayed for the 9pm show and fireworks, what a treat that was. Ended up walking back to hotel but only 15 minutes and half of that walking to the park entrance.
Hotel breakfast was included in $99 family room for 4. Can't complain at that and used shuttle following day. Saved $24 on parking charges at the 2 parks.
Hotel relatively new by looks of it and was very clean and tidy, rooms clean, great location for the parks.
