service was great but questionable area. I was concerned about the area but hotel service was good. They had good breakfast and clean rooms but the area was a little bit scary for my family. I have little ones and I felt unsafe.

This is a hotel that can only be utilized by a group of young single friends that want a nightly bargain rate to simply sleep at night while visiting the nearby attractions of Busch Gardens and Adventure Island. Other guests that stay there are NOT on vacation. They are on drugs, got evicted, etc. It's simply not a pleasant environment.... More
