Overall, after having booked this on Hotwire, we thought we had a very good value. The hotel, itself, is quite lovely and we had no complaint for the rooms, which were nicely decorated and very clean. The front desk staff was fine and very helpful.
However, I think that Hotwire should mention the parking fees, which, after reading some of the reviews, are all over the place. The self-park lists at $15.00/day. Some reviewers here on Tripadvisor said they weren't charged at all. We were charged $7.00/day as we were told was an "online booking rate." So, who knows what they decide to charge you...
The room service experience was a little infuriating. The food was OK, but the room service attendant tried to shake me down for extra money on his tip. He also was making change for the cash payment from his own wallet. I would say, either don't order room service or put it on your account. Best yet, if you don't want to pay room service prices, there is a McDonalds and a convenience store practically in the same parking lot out front.
The hotel is extremely convenient to Seaworld. It's barely a 5 minute drive.
In short, it's a beautiful place and we'd stay again, but with some caveats.
