We stayed overnight here with our grand daughter prior to taking her to the Lowry Park zoo. The hotel is average. The front desk girl greeted us warmly but I found it odd she did not seem to know the general location of our room as I asked about its location trying to figure where I might want to park. There is a nice large breakfast area and you should be able to satisfy your morning hungry with either a hot or cold meal. There is an outdoor pool but we did not swim (the pool is supposed to be heated) but water temperature seem cold. This hotel is in a great location if you're on vacation as it is just down the street from Busch Gardens (the coasters are visible from the front of the hotel). It was just a few miles over to the zoo. And for dinner there is an Olive Garden right next door as well as many other restaurants nearby. The wireless internet worked well. We found the room to be clean. We had a hiccup with the microwave as it overheated when trying to cook a second bag of popcorn. The wife ended up running the popcorn to the desk to get it cooked. There is also a mini fridge for your needs. A small coffee pot also if you don't care to run down to the breakfast area. For the price point the hotel is average. I would stay here again but would not go out of my way to do so.
