The hotel was clean and fairly affordable...
The breakfast is horrid! Served on styrofoam plates and with plastic knives and forks. This fact gives the whole place a "cheap and nasty" feel. On both mornings we were at breakfast (between 0730 and 0830) they ran out of several items. One staff-member told us it was because they were "busy". Please! What a poor excuse.
The shining light at this hotel is clearly a check-in staff member by the name of David ... he served us a drink one evening after the "bar had closed". We returned to the hotel after closing ... around 10PM or so .. he did not have to do it, but he did. He also suggested several good restaurants nearby. His whole demeanor is a huge plus for the hotel.
Fix the breakfast and we'll stay at this hotel again.

We try to learn from each guest experience. Thank you so much for your wonderful comments about our employee. He really does go above and beyond to accomidate all guests. We are sorry the breakfast was not exactly what you expected. With a complimentary breakfast and so many guests it is difficult to provide glassware. Limited kitchen space and brand standard regulations also limit our possibilities for breakfast. Although, we do have Styrofoam plates and plastic-wear we do try to offer an wide selection of breakfast items to choose from including eggs, sausage, waffles, biscuits, yogurt, fresh fruit, cereal, and much more. We hope you will give our facility another chance and thank you for sharing your comments with us.

This hotel bills itself for 'Busch Gardens convenience' and it really delivers on this promise by providing a complimentary minibus service to the attraction, with a drive there of just a few minutes. A phone call from the park means the bus will be waiting again right next the exit at the end of a fun filled day.
The hotel scores highly in every other way as well. The staff are friendly and welcoming and the rooms are spacious, with every comfort and free wi fi thrown in as well. The beds are more than averagely comfortable and bathrooms and toiletries are great too. For a moderately priced hotel the provision was first rate. The complimentary breakfast was really good, and much better than we've had in lots of other places. It made a nice change to see lots of healthy alternatives on offer.
