Tight Quarters, Bad Service in Cafe

We arrived and found that the room had two small rooms. The bathroom was very tight -- the sink was outside. Their was very little room around the beds. When we went for breakfast we told them that we needed to be out in 30 min. They said no problem but in 30 min. our breakfast had still not arrived. We left, without having eaten.

Great Place

This hotel is very near Busch Gardens, malls, restauants, etc. Very clean , nice courtyard and pool area. The staff is very friendly. There is a Village Inn on one side and a great Deli on the other (short walk). I have stayed here before and will stay again when in the area. They have a cafe at the hotel which is open all day. Rooms are large with separate bedroom and living area.

Another satisfying stay

My wife and I have now stayed at the Holiday Inn & Suites twice. What we love most about this hotel is the friendly staff, From the front desk, where Linda and Audrey always greeted us with a smile and friendly words. To the Cabana bar where Alice and Willie were a pleasure to converse with and much of the time share laughs. The Housekeeping staff were timely and highly efficient. The over all feeling we enjoy there is obviously the friendly staff, but the atmosphere within the walls of this establishment greets you once you pass through the front desk area to the outside terrace walk ways that take customers to the three levels where they might be staying. The many tropical plants that abound within and that surrond the pool are pleasing and bring a sense of peace. My wife and I plan on returning and feel like the staff are part of our family.

Considering they are in the process of renovating, we both admitted the hotel was nice. I am sure when they are done it will be better.

Great front desk staff

But don't eat at the Courtyard Cafe - poor quality and the service stinks. The room was great. The ambiance was also nice. There are lots of good restaurants nearby as well as attractions. The staff is very knowledgeable and did a great job of answering questions, handling minor problems and recommending good places to eat and shop.

There is a good deli and a good family restaurant - that gives a discount for hotel guests within VERY short walking distance of the hotel.
