“Great Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2012

Spent a week at this hotel on a recent golf trip. From check in to check out the service was outstanding. The room was immaculate and comfortable. Free water or beer are offered at check in. A message waiting for me sent by our golf packager about last minute changes

The breakfast was good although we got tired of by the 7th day. We were out the door by 7 am every day and returned back to the room by 9:00 pm and were greeted most nights by a cheery front desk person and free ice cream.

The hotel was quiet, clean and relatively new. The service was outstanding. It was a great stay.

The hotel is great only 7.5 miles from Busch Gardens. Clean! Good selection of surrounding resturants. They had ice cream every night between 8pm-10pm. The pool was clean. Very quiet location.
They served breakfast every morning. It was something different everyday. The hotel staff was friendly, helpful & knowledgable about surrounding attractions!
We have surly enjoyed our stay here at the hotel. I look forward to returning again sometime.

The room was immaculate and comfortable.The pool was quiet and unused during the day, but in the evening it was filled with kids. The breakfast was good & consisted of muffins, bagels, bread, pancakes,cereals and fresh fruit with juices, coffee and tea. Each day a different entree included sausage or bacon, potatoes and eggs. There were always plenty of tables. All employees were friendly and welcoming. The manager was in the breakfast room every morning checking on everyone's satisfaction. Free Ice Cream is served in the lobby at 8pm. Free water or beer are offered at check in.

Room Tip: I booked the room through Cheapostay at $85/night.

Stayed here with family (husband, daughter 12 and son 11) on first leg of a Disney cruise and DisneyWorld vacation to see Busch Gardens and a Yankee spring training game.

Hotel was centrally located, spotless, and they were extremely accommodating. Upon check-in they give you either a beer or a bottle of water and a cookie which is a nice touch. Room was spotless and pool and grounds were similarly extremely clean. Front desk staff very friendly and helpful.

They even had significant discounts at local restaurants (20-25% off entire tab) from chain restaurants like Friday's to local hot spots. Pool was heated, and very nice and kept at a perfect temperature (not too hot or too cold).

Definitely would recommend for good value and both family and romantic stays.

Nothing but attention to details at this hotel. The staff was very friendly and always willing to help you with your needs. Rooms and property always very clean. Breakfast selections had something to please everyone's tastes. Conveniently located to highway and restaurants and shopping. Will be even better once road construction is finished. Bed linens were exceptionally nice. Would stay again.

Room Tip: Have a suite room for longer stay.

We just completed a two night stay with the Busch Gardens package deal. Wow, was it a deal! The staff were very friendly and helpful. Every question and request was met with a smile and they were very accommodating as far as meal suggestions and directions. Very close to Busch Gardens, restaurants and other attractions. The pool was very warm and provided a nice, relaxing swim. Public areas were nice and the ice cream at night was great! The rooms were nice, clean, and the beds comfortable. Even though our room was just down the hall from the lobby, it was quiet. It is tucked back off the major thoroughfares, so traffic noise is not an issue. Breakfast was typical Holiday Inn but pleasant. Coffee was good in room. We would definitely stay here again, and I would certainly recommend it especially with the package deals of Busch Gardens or golf.
