Central Florida, Florida
Reviewed 31 July 2015

I choose to stay here for one big reason and that was price. I was in town for the bar exam and didn't want to pay the $200+ price to stay downtown next to the bar exam.

Palm City, Florida
Reviewed 22 July 2015

Upon arrival the room had a slight smell of mildew. The reason appears to be that the roll-in shower is too small to accommodate a shower-chair and the water spreads out over the entire bathroom floor and up and over the threshold causing the carpet to get wet. The floor should have been pitched toward the drain in the shower....

Great place to stay if visiting USF! If I have to be picky, bed pillows were too big. The staff gave me smaller ones when I asked. Safe location, great pool and excellent staff! If you stay at the back of the hotel,not facing USF, you can see fireworks from Busch Gardens.

Seven exhausted but happy family members arrived after a day at Busch Gardens. We were welcomed with smiles and quickly checked in. Our rooms were clean and comfortable. Breakfast was plentiful and the service personnel kept items available and the eating area clean. This ended our week in Florida with grandchildren on a positive note. We strongly recommend this location.
