We selected this hotel because of the generally positive TA reviews, and stayed for 2 nights. Everything that has been written about the staff's enthusiastic and positive attitude is true, except for the two housekeepers who made us wait for our breakfast while they queued up to the pancake machine. On the positive side, the breakfast is at the upper end of what I have come to expect from this chain of hotels.
The location is excellent and a quick 20 minute drive to the zoo, Sea World, and the harbor. A good Chili's restaurant is just across the parking lot, and numerous other dining options are within a 5 to 10 minute drive.
On the negative side, the room (314) had an odd odor probably due to some industrial cleaner that is used. The pool is not much to brag about. Our second bed was a fold out sofa that was really uncomfortable, and we ended up putting the mattress on the floor. The carpeting is definitely not new, but clean.
Would I stay there again? Not sure.
