Perfect hotel for an inexpensive stay....great pool and breakfast. Very clean and safe. Manager is very nice and accommodating. Nice location surrounded by restaurants and other shops. This should be the model for all holiday inn expresses!

Had to request a room change due to poor room condition. Unkempt bed, and smelly. They responded right away for a better room. Much better when relocated. The rest of the stay was fine. Nice room, nice stay, good and attentive staff.

The hotel is located 15 mins away from Busch gardens and is more towards the mid range of the hotel market. That's not to say that the hotel is not well kept. The room was good (if a little dated) the common areas were nest and tidy and the whole place was pretty clean . The room was a standard...

George sandona and his staff went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable and inviting. The entire staff was incredibly professional and very knowledgeable about area attractions, and directions. The stay at this establishment was one of the high points of our vacation, I highly recommend this hotel.

For 150.00 a night I would have expected a cleaner room. The toilet seat was dirty, the tub was disgusting. The room was dated. The good things were customer service, complementary water bottles and ice cream, and the continental breakfast was good.I will not be staying in this hotel again.

We stopped here for one night and was pleasantly surprised. The hotel is newer and has a nice decor. The rooms are extremely clean and the beds are very comfy. They provide a nice little breakfast as well as a little 'store pantry" next to front desk. Very close to highway and services.

We stayed at this amazing facility for two nights. The beds and pillows were super comfortable. The view was great. It's tucked away and seems secluded although it's right off the interstate. Best breakfast ever!!! Great staff! Free cookies, coffee all day and free ice cream at night.
