“Very nice Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2012

The hotel was nice. However, upon checking in there was a band concert in town and the hotel was packed full of high school kids. I asked when checking in if we would be on the same floor with them. We were told that they were on a seperate floor than we were.....wrong. They actually took up two floors of this hotel and one of them was ours. However, they were really not that loud and the stay was rather pleasant. We will be staying there again if we come to town. This hotel is right across from SeaWorld and easy access to other fun places.

There is also a resturant attached to the hotel which was ok, not the best but it was free (they gave us coupons). I suggest getting there ealy on the weekends since they have buffet style food. Over all it was really good food.

It was my husband's 26th Birthday and I wanted everything to be a huge surprise! I was taking him to Seaworld on Saturday the 28th and I really wanted cupcakes in the room when we got back. I called the Hotel to see if anyone could do that for me. You know, all the running around that you can't do when your husband is around? Well, I left a message for the manager, Julio (I am NOT sure if thats spelled correct and I am sorry to the manager reading this!) BUT I left his a message and he called me back on Sunday, a week before our trip and said he had NO problem at all doing this for me, took notes on what kind of cupcakes I wanted and balloons! He was AWESOME! My husband is VERY picky and loves red velet cupcakes with chocolate icing! WELL...we arrived on Fri the 27th with a very warm greeting! Everyone was VERY nice, telling my husband Happy Birthday and enjoy our stay! Not only that but on Saturday morning when I called the front desk to check on the surpirse, they told me to call Julio on his cell phone! How COOL!! He left his cell # for me and I could text and check up with him all day if I wanted!

We went to Seaworld, which the hotel provides a FREE shuttle survice, GREAT driver and very nice! I left my phone in the locker in my bag ALL day and got back in the shuttle and Julio and texted several times saying they no longer made red velet cupcakes at HEB, walmart and other bakeries...BUT the last text said: "Don't worry about anything, I have everything covered and in the room." I almost paniced until I read that!

When we got to the hotel I got to meet him FINALLY! and shake his hand! He is such a sweet man, and went above and beyond for me and my husband! My husband had an amazing birthday and I FIANLLY got to surpirse him, Thanks to Julio!! :)

Thanks again all the staff of this hotel!

Room Tip: VERY close to Seaworld! Free shuttle to it!

The hotel met basic needs of the trip. The discount offered in connection with a local business made it a great deal. The hotel has basic weight, aerobic, and pool facilities. The on site restaurant, Sporting News Grill, usually opened later than advertised. I made it once, but bailed a couple of other times after waiting 15 minutes since I had to get to a local business by 8 in rush hour traffic. The eco friendly aspect wasn't too much of a hassle other than having to leave the room key card in a reader for the entry light to stay on.

The best thing about this hotel was the shuttle to Sea World. The lobby was nice, but the front desk was not very helpful. We didn't know that you had to sign up for the shuttle to Sea World and only found out after waiting for it. The room we were in was ok but the bathroom was dirty and didn't look clean at all. We got a good deal on Priceline for our rooms, but next time I would definitly stay somewhere else.

The check-in was with ease. The elevators take 1-5 mins to respond, and there's always a line. The room looked nice, until we found pantyhose and used condoms in the trash. It might have been a mistake. Upon calling the front desk, Julio, offered someone up right away to get the trash and offered coupons for dine at sporting news grill. Some angry unidentified man handed me a trash bag and coupons, really? The next morning we wake to find the coupons are expired and cannot be transferred, the front desk offered nothing else but a "sorry". So, if you like overpriced rooms with slow dirty service - welcome home.

This apparently is a more Eco-friendly hotel, trying to attain LEED certification. Not that that matters too much when you are just looking for a nice place to lay your head, but it's nice. We didn't run into the problems other guests reported. The room was clean, modern and quiet. I know I saw lots of kids in the hotel due to the proximity to Sae World, but I didn't hear them. We had the buffet breakfast and the servers were very attententive. Food we fine, nothing to blow your socks off.

We enjoyed the stay, my wife, however, did not like the bed. She said it started hurting her hip after a few hours. Not sure what mattress they use, but we usually like Holiday Inn mattresses.

Oh, they have preferred parking for fuel efficient vehicles but any and everything was parked there. We have a Honda hybrid and couldn't get a spot. Cool idea but it's not enforced. They should give a permit or something so the Mustangs and SUVs can't park there.
