I went with my family to the Busch Gardens park and choose this hotel because is a block away from the park, very convenient if you want to walk to busch gardens or park your car and take the shuttle at no charge.
The breakfast was a typical Holiday Inn breakfast which works for me. Good job. Nice lobby. The room was fine. Not huge but perfectly fine with a flat screen TV. Bathroom was ok, there was no towels when I got inside the room. When I called down the front desk was very courteous and sent 3 towels. There was four of us, so I just went down and got an extra one.
The highlight of this trip was Jatnna at the front desk. Perhaps the most genuinely friendly welcome at a hotel in quite some time. Very nice girl. My kids didn’t know English that well and when they needed something they spoke to her in Italian and she could understand them.
I will return to the nicely located Holiday Inn Express by Busch Gardens.
