          Very convenient for USF, Temple Terrace, and Busch gardens. Rooms were adequate but overall need carpet and furniture replacement in rooms looks like same as when I first visited in 2004, a little worn down. Grill had good fish sandwiches and friendly staff.

          Double beds do not fit adults. Sad to find out the beds were not queen sized making the adults very uncomfortable during resting time. The pull out couch isn't any better. The decor could receive some revamping. Feels like your stuck in the 1980s.

          I see that the hotel has a shuttle to Busch Gardens which is great. Does anyone know the times the shuttle goes and if you have to inform the day before that you will need the shuttle.

          The shuttle is daily and typically leaves on the hour. You need to notify the desk the day of.
