The staff was friendly. My bathroom was dirty which I did not report until check out (my fault) as we were barely there and too busy. I like the simple breakfast and coffee for a quick bite before we left for the day. The a/c is REALLY loud but constant which is better than shutting on and off all night....

we were erroneously given a reservation by booking.com-however the hotel was nice and the staff were great-a bonus is we watched fireworks every night as the hotel is on the backside of busch gardens-which was not our destination-terry was a great check in at the hotel and we do plan to go there again

Rooms smelled like smoke, tub was dirty and mold around toliet. When I went to front desk they were rude and wanted to charge me for room change and extra if...

I was a bit worried by some of the reviews, and the cheap price, but it was great! Really handy location, in fact we spotted it from our ride at the top of Sheikra while we were still in the park! Room was a good size, with really good aircon (altho a bit noisy). Beds were a bit old, and...

Close to Busch Gardens, Clean, friendly, good time for our family. Breakfast was adequate, more choices would be better. Close to everything we needed. It would be nice to have a refridgerator and an in room safe. Could see the fireworks every night from the pool.

Room was acceptable for a couple nights stay and location was next to Busch Gardens as across the street, but 1 mile from park entrance which is a 20 minute walk give or take. Overall good experience no complaints. Breakfast was fine everything tasted good.

This is an older hotel but is clean and the staff was great! I liked the location and proximity to Busch Gardens. At night we were able to view the fireworks from the parking lot. The only downside to the hotel was the small breakfast. They have a large breakfast area but the selection was lacking in comparison to other...

This is by far the worst hotel I have stayed in in many years. This property is in need of a complete remodel or a tear down! The location was excellent for visitors to Busch Gardens, but it is bad! The sinks and tubs looked worse than what you would find in a junk yard - ships and stains all...
