Close to international drive

Posted 27-Jan-2015
Pros: It's nearby of some attractions, it's close to take buses and the i ride trolley service.
Cons: Improve the breakfast and renovate walls and ceilings.
The staff were really nice, they gave great service. Somehow the breakfast was dissapointing, I expected more variation. Too simple and came over a little bit cheap. There's no microwave in our room or refrigarator. The ceiling in the bathroom looks like it needs some renovatiom. The toilet flushes slow.

A basic Budget Hotel in Orlando.

Posted 12-Jan-2015
Pros: It was close to everything on International Drive. I payed a lot less than the other nearby hotels.
Cons: Management can do a better job in keeping a better cleaned hotel. Maybe shampoo'g the carpeting and painting.
I stayed on the Howard Johnson for a business weekend in January. I was not interested in spending a lot of money for just some basic lodging. In reviewing the other nearby hotel rates, which they were all quite pricey, HJ provided what I was looking for. A basic place to get a quick sleep and freshen up in the morning. Overall, it met those goals. There was some obvious repairs and better cleaning methods which should be noted however I guess you need to compromise. Don't look for anything spectacular. Expect just a reasonable priced place to stay overnight.

You get what you pay for

Posted 11-Jan-2015
This hotel is priced just right for what you get. Check in and check out are quick, room is clean, and has a free breakfast. Now there are some downsides but honestly nothing that would write off this hotel. There is no microwave in the room, which is a slight inconvenience. The free breakfast basically consists of cereal, instant oatmeal, mini muffins, pinwheels, bread, coffee and juices. It's free food so can't complain as to what is on it; however I will back up what someone said on a review before: get there when it opens! (6:00) They do not replenish the few items when they run out which is odd since there are employees there 'watching it' (but what they were mostly doing was eating off of the buffet that they should probably be replenishing). Basically this hotel is bare bones. If you want a hotel that is clean and nothing fancy this hotel is priced right.

The musty smelling room

Posted 8-Jan-2015
There was a musty mildew smell when the AC was not running. We asked if we could get a fridge (which half the size of a college dorm frig.) that did not have an inch gap in the seal. The shower was Ancient and the shower head provided no pressure...the last day no hot water.
