Reviewed 10 May 2014

We were only here one night pre-cruise. We are Choice Rewards members with Quality Inns. This location is clean , landscaped nicely, colored lights in the pool, and amazingly quiet considering the location is just off I-4. The hotel runs a shuttle to the cruise port. Neema and Harry were working the desk - didn'tt see Bobby . Reading the other reviews, we were prepared for a pleasant stay and did not disappoint. When I travel, I wear my Trip Advisor baseball cap. I showed it to Neema and said I'd be adding more positive comments. Big Smile from her again !

Being a Choice Hotel member, I researched the area extensively for a super nice hotel near the "hub" of activities. This one came up with a 97% review rating. It seems to fall short here for some reason and I'm not sure why. The check-in was easy and the staff was helpful in every way. Breakfast was very good and the check out went with no problem

Our favorite place to stay on our way to Fl. We are always treated well and the rooms are always clean. At check in they gave us a gift bag containing crackers, cookies, candy bar and water because we are gold members. That always makes us feel special. We always stay at choice hotels when we travel but this is the only one with gift bags.
If you like to visit the casino it isn't far, just the second exit off 4, a very short drive.
The only thing and it is a minor thing is the hostess at the breakfast. She loudly says good morning, how are you?across the room. She is very attentive keeping things neat, asking if you need anything and clearing the tables. We felt she was working for a tip which sounds cheap of us but we would rather just quietly eat ( not morning people until after coffee) and go. I think if she had continued doing what she was doing quietly it may have been different and maybe we were the only ones that were a little annoyed. Anyway the food was good, the scrambled eggs tasted like the real kind! They had all the usual stuff including fruit. And of course our next trip we will stop in.

Room Tip: They have two buildings, I am uncomfortable in the one behind the main building. I always ask to be...

Stayed here for a night pre-cruise. We were traveling with family and had 3 rooms. Staff was very friendly. Facility and rooms were comfy and clean. Breakfast was wonderful. Just a few minutes to the port. I highly recommend this hotel!

We have stayed in many Quality Inns over the years and they are usually just 'okay'. Not this one, this one was sparkly clean, comfortable, good value and a great variety at breakfast. Staff were really friendly. The breakfast area got really busy so would advise you to go down early. Coffee was available in the lobby all day and night. Great location if staying over for a hockey game. Will definitely have this in my list of places to stay when next at a games.

Pros:
