That's right. If you want luxury, pay $200 per night. If you want quality, this hotel will work for you.
On the negative side (if it really matter to you, read the first sentence again): 1. The clock was unplugged, so I had to plug it in and reset it, but it worked. 2.The bedside lamp had a broken bulb socket, so the bulb kept falling against the lampshade and had scorched both sides. 3. The shower curtain was not clean along the bottom. 4. The furniture is very dated.
On the positive side: 1. The beds and pillows WERE, as advertized, very comfortable. 2. The hot water was available and plentiful. 3. In-room coffee. 4. Decent complimentary breakfast. 4. Friendly staff, both at check-in and check-out. 5.. The check-in and check-out process was very efficient and quick. 6. Access to Busch Gardens is in walking distance, and very close to a range of restaurant choices.
Remember to ask for an A/C controller at the front desk!
