1) The worst WiFi I have ever dealt with. Signal would go out about every thirty seconds forcing me to quit app and restart WiFi, then restart app. Needless to say I gave up on Netflix/youtube. By moving the chair in front of the door and using WiFi signal there at least I could hold the signal. SLOW, but at...

Thank you for your feedback and we are deeply sorry you were disappointed in your visit. While we do look into all situations where it is believed someone is smoking in the hotel or making excessive noise, it can be very difficult to identify where it is coming from. Our desk team, as well as our hotel security did look...

This place is the best! I can't say enough about how great this hotel is. The place is clean and peaceful. Starting with the staff, Tara at the front desk is the nicest person that I have ever dealt with. Our entire family was grumpy after riding in the car for so long and she changed all of that. After...

Hotel front desk was very nice as well as the housekeeping staff. The lobby was in the midst of updating but even with that being said, it was clean, open and bright. It appeared that they were giving rooms a face lift as well. Beds in both rooms were very comfortable and the sizes of the room were very good....

Fantastic location for `Busch `Gardens. Large rooms. Whole family liked the breakfast and very easy parking. The pool was an added bonus. Small but perfectly fine. The room was slightly tired but had no issues at all.

I'm staying in this hotel as we speak. Upon returning from Busch Garden today my son and I were planning on swimming in the pool to freshen up! I noticed something on the bottom and proceeded to use their net to retrieve it. Yes it was human feces, YUK, I promptly told the front desk about it and since I...

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience, however, I believe you may have the wrong hotel. We have had no reports from guests or anyone else with any issues with our swimming pool, nor has our Certified Pool Technician discovered anything of this nature during his daily cleaning and treatments. We take situations like this very seriously....

Stood for one night. Has more of a motel feel but the staff and location were very good. The shuttle to Busch gardens wasn't available the time we wanted since it was a holiday but gave us food discount.

Thank you for your review, I do think you may have the wrong hotel, as our shuttle runs daily regardless of weather its a holiday or not, and we do not have a restaurant to give you a discount on food. It is possible you meant to leave a review for the full service Holiday Inn on 30th St? Sarah...

Stayed here only one night after Busch Gardens before heading to Orlando. It was nice to see the hotel so close to Busch Gardens after a long day at the park. The room was clean and very quiet. The beds were very comfortable. Used the small exercise room and everything worked. No complaints at all. It was nice to sleep...

The best Holiday Inn ever! After a long day at an amusement park, all anyone wants to do is relax. Thanks to the front desk staff for making that happen. A special thanks to Tori for going out of her way to make my family and I feel like we are home away from home...you are awesome!

The room was clean and comfortable. The free breakfast was fine, but once they ran out of fruit, they didn't replenish. The free shuttle service to Busch Gardens was nice, and the driver was fun. However, I was a little surprised when she ended our drive by leading the passengers in "Jesus loves me."

Thank you for your feedback, we are very glad you enjoyed your stay. Our shuttle driver does like to do sing-along's with our youngest guests and often allows a younger guest to pick the song, most likely this was a song a younger guest wanted to sing.
