When I stayed here I chatted with an employee and got some inside info....The vending machines were all removed so you have to go to the gift shop and pay $2.50 for a soda or even more for room service. The restaurant (awful) does not use their a/c and always pretend that it "just went out". They do not let you into your rooms even a minute before 4:00 because it is financially better for them (no electricity used ahead of time, you spend $ at the gift shop or restaurant- where they tell you to go while you wait for your room). I would not stay in the bungalows even if they were free of charge. Absolutely motel 6 and everything that implies. The non-tower rooms seem to belong to a different hotel. When my a/c would not work after 2 hours of trying the maintenance guy said he would just bring us a fan because the a/c s were old and didn't work all that well. Oh no he DIDN'T think I'd be paying big $$$ to use a house fan. We got a quick and free upgrade to a tower room and many apologies from a very helpful, friendly front desk person (Amanda).
The ugly :The fridges in both rooms barely worked, the carpets were stained, room service was totally inept both meals. You need to put personal items on a lounge chair by the pool at 6 or 7 or you will be sitting on the cement next to someone's chair. The cushions on the chairs are disgusting- sweaty, oily, bird poopy. $23 for parking is unreal in this area. Smokers paradise- people smoking all around pool and landscaped sitting areas.
The good: Best front desk service I have ever had, good valets, view of Sea World fireworks every night, kid's slide in pool (although many oiled up sun tanning adults liked to use it, I wish it was for kids only), view of marina from tower room, awesome landscaping outdoors. Great discounts when booking through the zoo or Sea World websites.
