Very Good
Pros: The room was large and well laid out. It was comfortable and you have a choice of soft or firm pillows.
Cons: The parking in the garage was the worst. The parking spots are not made for trucks or full size cars. Large polls are between every three parking spots and we saw a car tear off its side mirrow because the space is just so tight.

Pros: It was located close to most of attractions we wanted to see. Good selection for breakfast, staff were friendly and helpful.
Cons: One day at breakfast I was getting my food a homeless person came running in thru front doors making noise. He shoved me out of way with his shoulder saying "I'm in a hurry, I'm breaking the law". He was getting food with his hands & ran out door.

Wonderful
Pros: Centrally located to all major tourist attractions. Everything was within a 10 mile radius. Seaworld is like 2 miles from this hotel. The breakfast was really good and had a wide variety of options to choose from. Very family friendly place.
Cons: The parking spots are a bit too compact. One would really need to squeeze their car in to these spots.
