We booked this property because of it's closeness to Busch Gardens. We arrived late, tired, hungry, with 2 small children. Had booked 2 rooms slight mix up checking in and getting the keys as rooms not next to each other. Finally went up to the rooms which were not joining but around the corner from each other, our door looked like it had been kicked in on several times, the carpet had large stains on it. We should have left right then but needed to rest and eat. I went to clean my hands and found that the hot tap was the cold water and the cold water was the hot the same in the other room. We still just wanted to get food and sleep. After finding an IHOP had food, back to the rooms and sleep. This lasted until approx. 1:00pm when the noise in the hall became very loud. This lasted on and off until around 3:00pm I was awake when I heard someone trying to open our room doom. I yelled very loud the person stopped and yelled back that the desk had told them they could have this room. I called the desk and was told that when we checked in the desk clerk had not made the change in rooms in the computor. After this I did not sleep at all.
The next morning I spoke to the Hotel manager who was not very help full and appeared not to care. I would never recommend this property to anyone even if across the street from Busch Gardens, find some other property to stay at.
