Be sure to check out this property if you are planning a visit to Busch Gardens. It's very close to the park, and they offer a shuttle service that will take you there. The only catch with the shuttle is it is a small bus. Therefore if you have a family, you really need to make a shuttle time reservation to go into and leave the park. Because we realized this late in the day, we ended up driving into the park and paying the 17 dollars, yuck! When comparing rates be sure to take into account the no cost breakfast and the savings from the shuttle. Also, booking directly from the hotel is the best bet if you are needing multiple rooms. The price is the same as the travel discount sites and offers greater flexibility with your dates. The shuttle looked nice and very comfortable. So, now that you know about making reservations you won't be stuck having to drive into the park yourself!
The actual accommodations are wonderful for this price range. The beds are great. The pillows fluffy and there is a pull-out full size sofa in the living area to allow for a family with 5-6 members. One word of caution, the wonderful beds are just full size. So, my husband and myself, being used to a king size bed, took a bed a piece and put the boys on the sofa. While we were staying one of the elevators was out and for a brief period both went out, but the staff had someone on it quickly. The facility has hydraulic elevators so be prepared to wait a little for a lift. It is an older property, but the recent face-lift makes it delightful. Everything was up to Hyatt standards.
