I recently stayed at this hotel with my husband and family. The hotel is about 0.4 miles away from Busch Gardens and can be reached by a 20 minute walk or a 4 minute drive.

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!

We are annual pass holders for Busch Gardens and we love the concerts during Food & Wine. We decided to stay close so we could enjoy the wine and concert last weekend and booked this hotel based on how close it was to Busch Gardens. I was pleasantly surprised at how nice everything was.

Clean, friendly and free Breakfast! Stay there every time we go to Busch Gardens. Easy heck in and Check out. right across from the park. Not a lot of commercial business makes it perfect for families. Can't beat the price.

This was a well kept hotel. The property was built a couple of generations ago and we were somewhat surprised that the access doors were exterior. The place was kept orderly and there was a uniformed night watchman. We suspected that the neighborhood may have been a little sketchy but we did not feel unsafe. The outdoor pool appeared very...

Choose the La Quinta Inn mainly due to its proximity to the theme park which is literally across the road. As you'd expect this a budget hotel but it's more than comfortable with clean well serviced rooms, amble parking, surprisingly good free breakfast and friendly. Definitely one to consider if your planning staying over night before/after visiting Busch Gardens and...

The room was clean and the staff friendly. The hotel is outdated and rough looking and the breakfast is useless. Great location if you are going to spend the day at Bush Gardens. No other reason to stay here.
