I stayed at Holiday Inn which is located less than 2 miles from Busch Gardens this past weekend. I was very impressed by what I saw. We had a very large, clean, modern room with all the needed necessities. As a single mom, security and cleanliness of the hotel as well as the room are on top of my agenda...

We came to stay for a night before going to Busch Gardens. The upgrades they have done to the facility make it feel almost resort like. The staff at the restaurant couldn't be more attentive and the front desk couldn't be more accommodating. They allowed us to store our luggage, kept our babies breastmilk cold, and shuttled us to a...

After going to Christmas Town in the evening on 12/16/16 we checked in to this hotel, but found our reservations for two adults and two children were at another Holiday Inn. Luckily, there were vacancies and the most accommodating desk clerk helped cancel our other reservations and got us to our suite. Now, I have to say I was a...

We are very pleased that Busch Gardens included this hotel in their vacation package for a comfortable stay, delicious breakfast and quick shuttle to Busch Gardens. The staff could not be more attentive, especially Erica, with this busy crowd for New Years Eve weekend. We are very happy travelers!

We stayed here for 2 nights and it was OK, but I don't think I would have stayed the second night if I hadn't paid for it. Here was our experience: Checking in was easily and the lady that checked us in was fun and informative. We took our bags up to the Room and even though they are small...
