This is my second stay at this facility, the last one was in July. First time it was a holiday inn express suites .The name has changed To Grand suites. My first time it was terrific room was very clean and comfortable . This go around it was a little different the room was still nice and comfortable . However they are in need of updating. The room was very spacious , king suite , only thing I did not like it was on the front of the building and parking lot which gets a little noisy, The bathroom was really small and my room was right across from the ice machine and soda machine which did not work. The walk ways need to be cleaned ,and the breakfast wasnt anything to talk about. Just bagels and cereal But there is a Village inn next door with good breakfast. Last bad thing was we came from Busch gardens Hallowscream and no parking was available but we were allowed to park at the restaurant next door.
Overall I would stay again as long as they keep the standards up with the new owners the park is close and there is a shuttle to b.g.but you have to make a reservation for it.
If you stay try to get a room in the back, away from the parking lot and you will enjoy this hotel. Also lots of tv channels and hbo and internet service . Overall very pleasent stay .
