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!

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from foot traffic. The doors are super thin and you can hear everything in the...

We got in after a long day in Orlando, ready to shower and get some sleep for another day at another park. We had a minor issue with our shower. I called to the front desk to inform staff, Janet instantly called back saying we could move to another room which was upgraded. Not only was Janet quick and responsive, she brought us up our new room cards which gave us time to pack things up to move into our new room.
Excellent customer service!! We will definitely be using this hotel when in the area again.

This hotel is setting the bar high for their price point. Our experience was nothing less than fantastic. We booked through a Busch Gardens package, and although I was skeptical of the 20 minute drive with two tired kids, the front desk staff and ease of check-in made it worth it. They had a special gift for my kids and my husband and I loved the ice cream! The room was clean and spacious with plenty of room for both kids travel beds and we appreciated the nonslip mat in the bathtub. Breakfast was perfect for us in the morning, pastries, eggs, sausage, cereal, oatmeal, yogurt, milk and of course plenty of coffee! There was not a ice maker available, but the staff had no problem providing us with ice from their kitchen.

If we return to Busch Gardens from Orlando we will stay here again!

The staff at this hotel go over and beyond. From our first encounter with the staff until we left, you could tell that customer service is expected from all of the staff. The hotel lobby area was clean as well as our room. Our room was spacious, well stocked and had a mini fridge, k-cup machine and microwave. There is a nice variety of restaurants nearby and the location is really easy to find. We would definitely stay there again.

Stayed here for 3 nights for my son's hockey tournament. Pet friendly, clean, and very conveniently located to the highway, restaurants, etc. Free ice cream every night. Next to a movie theater. Staff was friendly. Would stay there again 100 percent.

Room Tip: stayed in the presidential suite which was a huge family room connecting 2 bedrooms. I also had a c...
