Comfortable and good central location

Posted 21-Mar-2014
Room was comfortable but in need of minor repairs. Only provided with 3 towels even though there were 4 people in our room and we were required to ask at the front desk daily for a fourth towel. Great central location with shuttles to the theme parks. Continental breakfast needed improvement as not much selection. Overall it was satisfactory for the price but could be better with a few improvements.

It's in a great location but needs work.

Posted 11-Mar-2014
Pros: nothing
Cons: everything
Location: The location is great. It's near shopping, restaurants and entertainment.
This hotel was not good. The non-smoking room smelled like a cigarette ashtray. The water pressure in the tub and shower was very poor making it difficult to wash hair. This hotel needs serious updating.

Hotel condition, cleanliness and comfort

Posted 7-Mar-2014
Pros: Unfortunately none. The staff is friendly.
Cons: Demolisg and rebuild the hotel
Location: Close by restaurants and shopping outlets.
This rating should be zero instead of a one. The room was not clean when we we arrived and did not get clean durring our stay. We wasted our money on the hotel. This is not acceptable for Expedia to keep booking for this hotel. And for the Hotel to run the business like this. They need to be inspect regularly on this facility, if they want to be in teh business.

Good for the price

Posted 17-Feb-2014
Pros: Conveniently located and price
Location: A lot of dining options in the area, close to Universal Studios
Considering the time spent at the hotel, I believe it fulfills the requirements of an average family visiting Orlando and that spends most of the time at the parks or shopping, Room comfortable enough for a good night's rest, in room safe a plus. Hotel does need some remodelling, specially bathrooms, staricases and elevators.
