I stayed with my family for 2 nights and really enjoyed the stay. We got there on a very wet day and checked in early. Rooms are spacious and very well equipped. There is a great clean little swimming pool on the side!. We expected a very basic continental breakfast but it was pretty comprehensive and included a a number of hot items such as sausage patties, bacon and biscuits. There was never a shortage of food and no problem getting a seat - along with complimentary morning newspaper.
We used shuttle to get to Busch Gardens and it worked very well. We were given a card with number to call for journey back and shuttle arrived within 5 minutes. (Although you can see from hotel, Busch is about a 15 minute walk - if you are feeling fit!)
You can walk to about 10 restaurants - we did not fine area unsafe and never had any problems. Overall, for the money paid - and excellent hotel.
