Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer Great stay, close to Busch Gardens
Almost everything about this hotel is great. As other reviews have stated it isn't in the best part of town but I didn't find it to be as bad as others said. It is directly next door to Olive Garden, Popeyes and Red Lobster. The staff we dealt with were GREAT! It's literally like 3 minutes from Busch Gardens and Adventure Island. The rooms and grounds were clean and nice.
The one thing we did notice, which is more about Holiday Inn Express itself, more than this location, but there was no Gideon Bible to be found in the room. We were disappointed that this new hotel has not continued the tradition and need for such a service.

We have a very good stay at this hotel, because it is very clean, and the staff was excellent.

I do not usually leave reviews but.... Hotel stated it was "New" yet had a dirty bed, stained towels, dirty desk chair, shower water poured out tub spout more than showed head, a/c sounded as though an airplane was taking off, and I hung my towels to "help the hotel conserve" and my towels were taken and not replaced. I have cancelled any future reservations I had. I will NEVER stay there again. I have a bad taste in my mouth for Holiday Inns now.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Edrass Great place to stay when visiting Busch Gardens!
We, as a family of five spent one night in this hotel while visiting Busch Gardens. It exceeded our expectations!
The room was clean, spacious and well appointed. The bathroom was fully stocked with toiletries and had great towels. We particularly enjoyed the full breakfast! Hanging out around the pool with a four year old was a great way to cool off, burn energy and catch some rays.
The free shuttle service to Busch Gardens (just two blocks from the hotel) save us the parking fees in the theme park lot. Our shuttle driver, Maureen, was a hoot and kept us singing and laughing on the ride over. When we left the park (closes at 6 pm on weekdays) there was Maureen waiting for us just outside the gate.
All in all a five start place to stay on a budget!
