Far from quality

Posted Jul 7, 2014
Arrived to be told they did not have my reservation from Expedia. Waited 30 minutes while the guest in front of me dealt with the same problem! Went to room which smelled funny(old, smoke, mildew). We were told to spray Fabuloso & given bottle to do so!! A/C barely worked. Room had holes in the wall, bathroom had holes, peeling paint and just a look of complete disregard for upkeep & maintenance of even some semblance of quality living up to their name. Front desk staff were friendly & nice but that does not help the disaster. Thankfully it was only one night so we went out to eat, came back late, slept& left early in the morning. The positive things are its proximity to Busch Gardens, the decent free breakfast which was kept well stocked throughout time frame. They REALLY need to upgrade the hotel because it is a true disgrace to the name.

Cons: Time for new paint, carpet, etc
Location: Close to Busch Gardens and dining
Just OK, comfortable and fairly clean but in need of an upgrade - looks like better choices in price range nearby

Nice stay

Posted Jun 15, 2014
We had a nice experience at this hotel. The front desk lady Catherine was beyond lovely!!! She was very nice, funny and friendly! The room was clean and comfortable. Right across the street from Busch Gardens which was the reason for our trip. We'll definitely stay here again!

One night stop

Posted May 27, 2014
Pros: In front of bush gardens.
Cons: Anything.
We where on a road trip through Florida with friends on a tight budget. The hotel could be better if they would do some cleaning, the staff at front desk were very kind.

I got no sleep. The walls are too thin.

I got no sleep. The walls are too thin and I heard everything going on in the hallway and in the next room. The workers were really noisy. They were yelling in the hallways and carrying on. The room was pretty clean so I will give them that.

Cheap motel, all we needed was clean sheets

Posted Apr 6, 2014
Pros: Location
Cons: Update the rooms, hall carpet was very dirty, very noisy, could hear toilet flush in adjoining room.
Location: Busch Gardens, Hard Rock Casino nearby
Clean sheets and a clean bathroom were our to priorities. It was an old motel, clean enough, two double beds, the one had been slept in, so we used the other bed which was not soiled. You get what you pay for.

Not a Quality Inn by Choice Hotels

Posted Apr 1, 2014
First time in years and years I've been totally disappointed in a Choice Hotel. They should pull the sign off this motel. Rugs thread barren, heavy cover-up spray to hide the mildew and decay smell in the rooms. Towels were thin with holes in one of them. No bath soap. I could go on and on but you get the idea. Booked it through Expedia and had to fight to get refund on 3 day prepaid room.
