“Great stay......recomended”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2014

Clean,comfortable,excellent quiet location,great staff. Ive stayed at a few Holiday Inns around the world and this is "the best".
All the staff were helpful and efficient and to be greeted by the General Manager ( George) was a very nice and welcome surprise. Everything gets a ten from me.
I really didn't want to recommend this oasis as it may become too popular and I may not get a room next time. LOL

this was the last hotel on our little tour of florida. we stayed 2 nights before our flight back. A little away from the coast but we chose this based on trip advisor reviews. I was a great hotel. staff were very helpful and the breakfast was good to start off your day. Nice pool but we didnt use it for so long as we were off out exploring. i would recommend this hotel no problem. really comfy beds.

My fiancée and I stayed here for just one night to recover from a long drive on our way back home. We were exhausted and thought this would just be a quick stop. The night check in agent was the friendliest night agent we have ever encountered! I only wish I knew his name to recognize him properly. It was very impressive to encounter such a friendly and caring individual so late at night. We received bottled water during check in and after a night of much needed rest we enjoyed the delicious, awesome breakfast available and were pleased to encounter more friendly employees that were talkative, cheerful and truly exceptional. Service like this makes all the difference in the world and turned an ordinary quick stay into something very memorable!

This hotel is top-notch. We were there on business/vacation and we had impeccable service. The pool is a garden oasis and so relaxing. The manager, George, was so friendly and went out of his way to make us comfortable. It's great to stay at a place where the caring is obvious!

Room Tip: There is no bad room!

We travelled up from Orlando to stay the night before going to Busch Gardens. George and Judy really went out of their way to make sure they are doing everything within their power to make your stay as perfect as possible. Their warmth and friendliness are unrivalled and set the the standard in how a hotel should be run. Great rooms great service and a fantasticly run hotel

Thank you

As before we stayed here following the good reviews on trip adviser and again very pleased with the outcome. This hotel is Independently owned and as a result the staff are brilliant, throughout our four day stay they had plenty of advice on shopping, restaurants and Busch Gardens (not far away) A short walking distance is a cinema, restaurants and shops. The rooms are large with two large double beds, very comfy, big bathroom, good shower, all you need for a good nights sleep. The breakfast was excellent for an "express" and changed each day, coffee was 24.hours the local police took advantage of this and interestingly their presence gave the feeling of added security, also ice cream was free each evening at 8.00 for one hour, kids loved it. Plenty of free parking and a very good swimming pool with sun beds in a nice setting to the rear of the hotel, towels provided. We have used HIE all over the world and found them great value, this one is exceptional and highly recommended.

Room Tip: Buy your Busch Garden ticket from reception they have cheap deals, and the manager (George) gave us...

The hotel is small and quiet but the team is super friendly and assertive. The rooms are decent size and clean which is what I want when I travel. All in all in great little hotel. Friendly staff and quick to ask if you need anything at all times. I will be back.
