We stayed at this family-run property for a weekend wedding/Busch Gardens getaway. It is an old ‘motor court’ motel, spotlessly clean with all the basics needed in a hotel room, including complimentary soap and shampoo and hair dryer.
Our generously sized non-smoking king room also had a full-sized closet (yes, a closet! With doors!), iron and full ironing board, a table with two chairs, small loveseat, mini-fridge and microwave, and a heating/cooling unit that kept the room toasty on a cold-ish October night. Furniture and décor was somewhat dated or just plain utilitarian, but all well working – and the bathroom appeared to be newly tiled and painted. (When we visited, the pool was closed for the season, so we cannot speak to that. ) Staff is pleasant and very accommodating with information when needed.
Free wireless internet access is not the speediest but does the job – note that if you are not accustomed to seeking and accessing wireless networks independently, you may need to contact the front desk.
Caveats: those who need firmer pillows may wish to bring their own; those needing very firm beds will be disappointed; and light sleepers may be disturbed by the occaisional train noise over the heating unit – tho the tracks are across a five-lane road and behind property on the other side. Anyone wanting more high-end furniture, decor, or other amenities of 'higher-end' accommodations should look elsewhere.
However, if simple overnight rooms are needed, this hotel is an excellent value with a good location near Busch Gardens – we recommend it most highly and will stay here again in the future.
