Our family of four-2 adults, a 7 year old and a almost 2 year old, stayed in a 2 Queen bed suite on the 4th floor. The suite was great; the beds were very comfortable, the kitchen was a good size and it had nice flat panel tv's in both rooms. The room was very clean and was roomy enough for to the four of us to be comfortable, even with a pack and play in the bedroom! The complimentary breakfast had a very wide selection. While I could get nit-picky about the eggs (a little bland), you couldn't beat the selection of food. We especially loved the waffle station, where you could make a Texas shaped waffle! Lots of healthy choices and not so healthy choices (which is good because on vacation, I kind of like to live a little!). Breakfast went until 9:30, which was helpful since it takes a long time to get my brood up and dressed in order to be presentable. One of the selling points for us on this place was the Free Shuttle to SeaWorld. Here is what we found out. It's a bit crazy in the morning to ride the free shuttle-you have to get in line and get your name on the list. There were a lot of people going and apparently quite a bit of confusion and irritation by the guests and driver alike. When my husband told me this, I said, forget it, we'll drive. It was just easier than dealing with the headache. So, I cannot comment on the timeliness of the shuttle to and from or any of that. Just know in advance that there may be a bit of a wait and/or extra steps to take the shuttle and you'll be fine I'm sure. Now for the two negatives we had (and trust me, neither are deal breakers so don't cross this place off your list, it's just a heads up). I read another review on here that pointed out that the bathtubs are super slippery and that they should put in bath mats. That reviewer wasn't kidding! Luckily, I remembered this and when I went to bathe the kids, I had a good hold on them. Went I used the shower myself, I had to plant my feet and not move! I warned my husband and sure enough, he came out of the shower with some choice words! You wouldn't think something would make that much of an impression but if you are elderly or a kid, or are not fully prepared for it, you could seriously hurt yourself! Again, I would stay here again, without a doubt, but be warned about the tub! The other thing we didn't care for was that there are no ice machines on the floor. We bought a bottle of wine when we got into town and had no ice in the room. The freezer makes ice, but of course, they empty it after each guest and we would have had to wait all night to get enough ice to chill it. My husband asked the front desk about the ice machines and they said they didn't have any except in the kitchen. So they provided us with ice and by the next morning the ice tray was full. Again, not a deal breaker, just a heads up.
All in all, this place was great, they were very helpful and we would definitely stay here again. I highly recommend it!
