The bathroom in our room was filthy. A giant matt of hair was on the floor near the toilet. The baseboards were matted with dirt. I would NEVER stay at this hotel again. Also, all rooms are exterior rooms. Be certain to not stay in the back of the hotel. Easy access from the street which was not a comfortable... More

The hotel is across the street from Bush Gardens, Red Lobster, Olive Garden, Dunkin Donuts and many other places to eat. Great locations for visiting Bush Gardens. Close to the University mall which has a new movie theater where you can also have lunch or dinner. Nice breakfast served at the hotel. Good size pool with a waterfall.

This is an okay hotel if you just want to spend the night after visiting Busch Gardens as it is very close. It's also good if you have pets as they can stay for free. The rooms need updating/maintenance as the room looked worn and some things were in need of painting or repair

We choose this hotel online due to its location right outside of Busch Gardens. I requested a wheelchair accessible room that they assured me they had. After a 5 hour drive to this hotel we arrived to find and older hotel with a great location. They assigned us a room on the third floor (should have been a warning right... More

I can hear the excitement from the rides in my hotel room, that is how close the park it. It is a mile to the entrance. Hotel staff is friendly and there to please everyone. If you are looking for a place close that will not break your budget, this is for you.

I booked this because of price. Not too bad. Bed fairly comfortable. Room basically clean (couldn't find any of the usual yucks - vacuuming good, bed spread clean, grout clean....). The problem came in the form of next door neighbors. Baby!! Right next to the door that opened to the room next door. We weren't sharing, but their baby was... More
