4 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

Just stayed there this past weekend 04/05/2014 to 04/07/2014 and the hotel has been refurbished and our room was very clean, the staff was very friendly, and the rates were great!! We went to stay because we were going to Busch Gardens for the weekend and for a place that you are, just sleeping in technically, it was perfect. People on here are just too picky about things, or have really bad luck, we had a great time and plan on going back since we are annual pass holders to the park and it's just 2 miles from there. Oh also forgot to mention that they had a great continental breakfast as well. All in all, not too shabby, if you're expecting a four or five star hotel, then STAY at a four or five star hotel and quit whining on here. Thanks.

Perhaps the location dictates the clientele. Not suited for families. Loud disturbances throughout the night. Big holes in the wall hidden behind furniture. I found them because I was looking for an electrical outlet in order to charge my cell phone. Linen questionable as to cleanliness but room really not cleaned, Found miscellaneous debris throughout the room.

After reserving a non-smoking room, the clerk tried putting us in a smoking room. Although designated a non-smoking room, previous occupants had smoked in it. The carpet had not been cleaned for a while, The toilet paper holder was falling off the wall. There was dirty hand prints on the door. The air conditioner unit cover was held on by a small towel. Don't stay in Rm 323.
