We arrived late at night, after 11 pm, and the front desk was still friendly and welcoming. We booked through the Busch Gardens Vacation Site. Our son was given a giraffe souvenir from Busch Gardens and they gave us a lanyard with a discount pass on it and 3 bottled waters. Our room was clean and inviting. Bathroom was fully stocked and we loved the Keurig coffee maker. Breakfast was served until 10 am both days, giving us plenty of time to eat. There was plenty of protein and lots of baked goods, too. They offered soy milk boxes for us lactose intolerant guests. Only thing missing was a gluten free cereal option, like Cheerios. Everything they had, other than the meats and eggs had gluten. The coffee and juice was great, too. We enjoyed sitting at the high top counter in the middle of the room. Very comfortable. We loved everything about our stay. The only things we would have liked improved was mattress quality, sound proofing of the door/hallway and putting a safe in the room for valuables. Thank you for the memorable stay!
