Location close to the park Here are some room and housekeeping issues we encountered: 1. Bathroom faucet has a very low water pressure. Unable to wash face or brush teeth. 2. Toilet paper wasn't replaced. We have the old roll from previous guests and no extra, no new roll of toilet paper in our bathroom. 3. Not enough towels. 4. Shower water leaked outside the tub and we only have 1 bath rug. 5. Room mini refrigerator not cool enough. 6. Breakfast mediocre. Very few selections and coffee was AWFUL! 7. Parking very tight. I don't why so many parking spots for compact.

Great for attending Busch Gardens, not for quiet or comfort”

If you want to be close to Busch Gardens this will be a satisfactory location. It's across the street from the amusement park and you can watch the rides from most of the windows. If you are just looking for a good hotel, get further away from the hustle and bustle of Busch Gardens. There is a fire station just across the street and fire trucks were responding to emergencies all night, every night. The AC units in the rooms appear to use motion sensors, so when we were out and left the dog in the room the temperature would revert back to uncomfortable. The focus of this hotel is not guest convenience or accommodation, it is on flipping the rooms. I notified them 4 days in advance that I would need a late checkout to attend a family funeral, but they were unconcerned with my schedule and ability to attend the funeral. They told me they could possibly wait until noon, but for me to "clear out of the room as quickly as you can" so they could get their staff out early.
