Just returned from a 4 day stay for business. Hotel is exceptionally clean and well maintained. All staff were very friendly and helpful. Room had plenty of space, flat screen TV, microwave, small fridge. Bed was very comfortable. I typically do not eat the complimentary breakfasts at most hotels as I prefer a "real" breakfast to start the day. Not the case here - ate at the hotel every morning with eggs, bacon, toast and yogurt - good coffee too. Also, liked the (cash) option for beer/wine in the lobby at the end of the day.
Location is right around the corner from Busch Gardens with plenty of eating options nearby. Liked Tia's Tex Mex Grill a couple of blocks away. And if you want authentic Jamaican food in a casual atmosphere, try the Island Grill at the corner of 30th and Busch Blvd. Would not recommend Cafe Don Jose, lunch prices were high, $10 - $15, food was ok but too salty.
