We stayed at this hotel from march 5 2013 to march 7 2013.
Front desk: very polite, fast check in and out. We arrived late at night, and departed at 11am. At both times, quick procedures.
Room: overall clean, we had a balcony, so it was possible to have an open window instead of using the AC. Also the AC was new, worked perfectly when needed. The rooms are old, and have a vintage tube TV. But they still work. ;) Free WiFi worked fine, nice speed. But be carefull if you are carrying lots of luggage: There's no elevator there!!!
Noise: we were on the 2nd floor, and if there's something that bothers me is noise! But for my surprise, no noise at all! So try to get a room on the 2nd floor.
Breakfast: we found it nice. Coffee, juices, donuts, bagels, butter, jelly. Remember that you are not paying for a Hilton breakfast, so keep that on your mind.
Location: very close to Busch Gardens. Don't need to use your car. Just cross the street. Important Note: the pedestrian entrance is located on the corner of N Mackinley drive/40th street with E Busch Blvd.
Overall, if you are not spending more that 3/4 days there, is the place to stay considering the price. If you need a longer stay, maybe you could stay at a better place.
