The front desk was friendly and the room more or less clean (hair in the bathroom) but that's the only 2 things I liked in this hotel. The room I had was small, the AC is right in front of the bed. I had doubts about the cleanliness of the pool (the water wasn't clear at all) and the worse...

We really loved this hotel. It was so comfortable, and CLEAN! The décor was beautiful and it was beautifully updated. They have a courtyard that is very beautiful also.

From check in to check out, the staff here are amazing and why we will come back to this hotel. The courtyard is beautiful as is the lobby. We had a spacious room that could use a little updating. The beds weren't as comfortable as I would've liked but my children slept fine. The AC was loud in our room,...

The courtyard area inside is awesome! We booked this place with the BG package. Great food deals, tasty food, nice, clean rooms, and a value for all. The most important aspect of this place is the staff. It was apparent that most everyone here was happy to be there and it showed in the quality of service they provided. A...

I held a meeting last week and ran into some real difficulties. Tara, from the front desk; and Antoinette, from banquets, were absolutely amazing! They both went far beyond the "extra mile" to make my meeting work and my stay very pleasant. My only regret is that I wasn't able to spend more time at this beautiful facility. Well done,...

My family of 6 stayed here overnight. I was impressed with how clean and roomy the room was. Queen beds, not full, and very comfortable. The pull-out sofa had a thick mattress which made the pull-out a lot more comfortable.. The suite had a door to separate the room to the living room and the bathroom with sinks had a...

The Restaurant/ bar had a nice look but could’ve had better promotions to get more guests to come. I went to pick up my order around 6pm and wanted to stay and have a drink but I was the only one in the whole place. Nice place but felt deserted and made me uncomfortable.

We stayed here two nights while visiting Busch Gardens. We chose this hotel as part of a vacation package through BG. What an excellent choice. First of all, the hotel is just around the corner from BG, and they do offer complimentary shuttle. All the public areas were nicely kept and very clean, as was the very nice sized King...

Not much to review because we arrived in the evening and checked out early the next morning. Our room was clean and quiet and check in and check out was smooth. The pool looked inviting and would have used it if our stay was longer. I especially liked being able to buy discounted Busch Gardens tickets at the front desk....
