The room was good, we got good bath, good sleep and good breakfast. The room smells humidity, as most of the Floridian locations, but it was not that bad. The front desk girl told me they renovated on 2014.

Great location to Bush Gardens and dining, staff outstanding went out of their way to assist, hotel could use minor updating and painting. Had a small pet and there was a nice grassy area in rear of hotel to walk the dog.

Very easy check in, room was huge so i was pleasantly surprised. It was pretty quiet. Pool was awesome and breakfast was basic waffles and bagels. There was a security guard so i felt safe. Right by Busch gardens. Taxi only $5!

I will definitely be back to stay at this hotel again! I've stayed here 3 times and each time is great. The closeness to everything is so convenient. Breakfast has alot to offer. Everyone is extremely nice and easy to deal with.

We stayed for 3 nights based on location, which is great and availability. It is right across the street from Busch Gardens. It looks as though they've attempted to update the interior decor recently, but these are the worst mattresses we have ever slept on. Parking can be hard to come by. The coffee is "tasteless" according to my husband,...

This location was excellent for trips to Busch Gardens or adventure Island. The rooms were clean and everything went well on the stay. no issues to report. The only thing I wish is for the breakfast to be updated otherwise it was a good location for a great price.

I guess you get what you pay for. Old,tired and run down. It was clean. It was very noisy. The location was great, very close to Busch Gardens. We had to walk outside to the breakfast area through a walkway. No signs indicating where it was located.
