  • Liked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities

The staff was amazing, everyone was nice and welcoming. The shuttle bavk and forth to Busch Gardens was the best. We stayed in the second floor, we reserved the room for 4 people 2 adults 2 kids, we were only given 3 towels, there was no conditioner, no body wash, not even a third of a toilet paper roll, our towels were taken and never replaced , coffee condiments were not refilled and there was no other source off coffee and the hallway of the 2nd floor staued meesy from Friday night to sunday when we checked out. it looked like someone spilled trailmis, peanuts, raisin and chocolate candoes and that was there our entire stay.
