I can't believe how nice this hotel is! I was in town for a long weekend trip to busch gardens and mainly booked here because of how close it is to the park (we literally left in the middle of the day, came home and showered and then went back it was so close). However, I was so pleasantly surprised when I got there. The staff was so professional and friendly throughout my whole trip. They gave me a ton of local recs for food and activities and just made the checking in/out process a breeze. The actual hotel itself is also so upgraded - it's got a nice huge pool, fireplace in the lobby, and great coffee! Plus the rooms are so nice, it really feels like a 5 star hotel for a fraction of the price. They're spacious, clean, and the housekeeping is so great about keeping everything spotless. There are also laundry machines which came in handy towards the end of our little trip! I will definitely be back and cant recommend this hotel enough! 10/10

So first, the highlights: This hotel is located a very short drive from major attractions such as Water Country and Busch Gardens, so if you are looking for a wallet-friendly place to park with the kids for a couple of nights, this is the one. The free continental breakfast that comes with your stay is a hard-to-find luxury in today's budget hotels, and they really go all out with it: eggs, sausage, potatoes, bread, bagels, muffins, pastries, coffee, juice, breakfast cereal, and even waffles are made available from 6:30-9:30, and constantly replenished by the excellent breakfast staff. They didn't have to go that hard, but they did, and it's a major benefit to the hotel. Additionally, we really liked that there was an easily accessible sheltered parking area on those hot days we were there. I do need to note, however, that our room was not excellent. We got a suite for its full-size fridge and its space for a 4-person family, and I would say it could really use some TLC. First of all, there is the mildewy smell. There must have been some flooding or other water damage at some point, because the room definitely smelled like it. A guest doesn't really feel like going barefoot on that carpet. There were also some little issues that seemed like they resulted from neglect. I had to kill an especially loud cricket near one bed the first night, and I also stepped on a discarded nail by the other bed on the next night. The sink in the half bathroom did not drain until we fixed it ourselves, and the drain in our bathtub was noticeably dirty when I went to take a shower. So overall, I'd say this is a convenient, better-than-you'd-expect, affordable hotel that just needs to up the game a little bit in its care of the rooms in order to make the place truly awesome.
