Myself and two teenage sons stayed for two nights to visit Busch Gardens. Our stay was perfect. The room was spacious and clean and there was a fridge and microwave, perfect for us as one of my sons has a gluten intolerance (there is a Publix just up the road with a Dominoes round the corner who do gluten free bases).
A complimentary shuttle takes you right to the BG entrance and collects you at any time during the day - a great bonus. The breakfast buffet was a real treat with so many choices and the ladies there kept the area spotlessly clean. The staff were always friendly and helpful. We bought our Busch Gardens tickets there and got a good saving on the gate prices.
There is a small swimming pool, but we didn't try it. The science centre (MOSI) is just up the road, which makes a good visit for families with kids - the ropes trail and zipline were the highlight of our visit there.
My only concern about the hotel, from a security point of view, was the door to the pool didn't seem to close that well, but everything else was great.
