Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Needs some work. Not good bus parking."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
Hotel is a little run down. Needs an update. Not good for motor-coaches.

06-Jun-2016 Verified Review, stayed from Fri Jun 03 to Sat Jun 04 2016 at a $84.00 group rate (29% discount).
Overall Score1.0/ 5
Someone had puked in our room and it hadn't been cleaned well. It smells so bad, it could make me puke. One of the rooms in our group had a shower that had not been cleaned had a used bar of soap in it. The other chaperones in our group were put on the other side of the hotel. When they opened their room, they found it was already occupied. There second room was not clean at all. The doors do not latch well, so the young girls in our group were a little nervous. Our rooms were right down from the lobby and it was so loud in the lobby that it sounded like a party. WILL NOT EVER BE STAYING HERE WITH OUR GROUP! This was the worst hotel we have stayed at in the 16 years that I have been bringing groups here!

"It is in Desperate Need of a Remodel"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Although the breakfast selection was great and they had three waffle makers, they need to enlarge the seating area. The only problem we had was a refrigerator that was not working and a couple of slow drains. The refrigerator was replaced within 10 minutes of notifying the front desk. Everything was clean and all of the staff was friendly and went out of their way to help. Overall, a good experience.

"Good rate nice hotel"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Had a group of eleven rooms going to Busch Gardens. The staff was helpful every step of the way. The bathrooms could use some upkeep but they were clean. Breakfast was nice and the pool area was very enjoyable. When I first arrived my toilet didn't flush. I called down and the lady at the desk was very polite and someone came to fix it almost immediately. All eleven rooms were nice and the group was very pleased over all. It is also in a great location and I would stay here again.

Response from Management on 14-Aug-2014:
Good Morning Danielle B.,Thank you for your kind review. I will pass on the kudos to the staff on your behalf! We would cherish the opportunity to work with you and your group again in the future!
