A local wedding guest--in need of R&R--I had a serene, restful stay. Enjoyed this wonderfully-located, efficient hotel, with a big pool (I enjoy this chain). On the water, with generous daily breakfasts and day-long coffee and teas. The Bahama Breeze bar & restaurant is steps away. Room was clean & quiet (4th floor). Front desk staff very helpful (although when I asked if I could cash a small check, the reply was "We don't DO that."). Housekeepers were nice, and young Marisa (Front Desk) was a doll--even before I arrived. There are 2 big malls nearby and the airport a hop away. Just across Highway 60 is the Rusty Pelican Restaurant--do NOT miss this place. Busch Gardens--on the other hand--was a FORTUNE ($17 to park, $95 admission!!!).. I simply screamed and did a U-Turn and went up the road a bit instead--and LOVED the Lowry Zoo (free parking, low prices, and a natural-habitat wonderland of animals--plus a Merry-go-round and café). Bring your umbrella EVERYWHERE---my shoes were drenched 2X by early-evening FL cloudbursts. Rented a Car from Enterprise--ask Jason for the $19.99/day Hol-Inn special. Tell him Linda sent you...
