This is my second visit to this hotel. The first being a couple of years ago.
We were greeted by a very helpful guy on the desk. We were early but e found us a room. Which meant that we could unload our luggage and go Busch Gardens.
The room had two queen beds, fridge, coffee machine and microwave, iron and ironing board.
For some reason there is no safe.
Our room looked over the swimming pool and towards Busch Gardens.
The room was clean and very well appointed.
We used the laundry room both the washing machine and dryer take quarters and costs a dollar.
We used the shuttle bus to take us to Busch Gardens and the driver was very helpful. He gave us a number to ring when we needed picking up. I explained we were from the UK and didnt have a phone. We were advised to use the courtesy phone which is positioned on the back of the building where you get dropped off. He was there within mins of my call. For some reason there was no shuttle between 1 -4pm whilst we were there.
Breakfast was good and we loved making fresh pancakes with their automatic machine.
I found the staff to be extremely helpful and friendly.
I would stay here again without hesitation.
