Guest Reviews

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 389 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Service - comfortable room Staff was friendly and helpful. Room was comfortable and clean. Nice driver on shuttle to Busch Gardens. Breakfast was limited compared to some other complimentary breakfasts we have had. The area surrounding the hotel was run down but good location for going to Busch Gardens August 2, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Great except small screwups Nothing wrong with the hotel itself. It is a great place. The shuttle service to bush gardens is a screw up. There is some confusion between bush gardens closing times (which can change depending on weather at any time of the day) and the hotel assumes a time that they heard in the morning of the day. When we started the day, the park was supposed to be open until 1am but later they changed to close at 9pm but for a final 9pm firework party that ends at 9.30pm. The shuttle guys told all that he will be coming untill 12am but he decided to go home at 9pm itself. We got stuck in the rain after the fireworks at 9.30pm and had to catch a taxi in a hurry. Not a big deal but with the family near by in the rain this task seemed to an adventure by itself. Except for this screw up, it is a great place to stay. just don't depend on the shuttle service.
