Done the job!

Posted 22-Aug-2014
Pros: The staff were friendly, it had a swimming pool for the kids. It was cheap enough and had everything we need for the trip.
Cons: Double glazed units to cut down the noise of people walking passed. Better breakfast.
Location: We were on International Drive, so ideally based for places to go out and eat and plenty of shops and smaller supermarkets and gift shops.
I've put yes to recommending this hotel, but only if you want a cheap hotel for Disney area and it was fine for our requirements of 2 rooms with 1 adult and 1 child in each room, if it was a bigger family or group I would go for a villa with a pool as it's more like home from home and a bit more relaxing and chilled out and you have all the facillities in a villa. It was ok for what we needed, it was clean, the bed was comfy, it had a fridge in the room, but no microwave that it reported to have on the details of the hotel. It had tea/coffee making facilities, with coffee etc supplied. Could have done with double glazed units to cut down on some of the noise from people walking passed. Breakfast was not up to much, I think we went down to breakfast 3 times, we got some supplies from the supermaket instead or there are loads of places close by that you could get a much better breakfast! Staff were friendly and helpful. Would I stay there again, probably not as last time I went we stayed in a villa and it was much more relaxing, although the hotel done the job for what we needed, it was cheap and comfortable enough and we were hardly ever there!

Poor quality but good location

Posted 5-Aug-2014
Very out dated and poor quality rooms. Very noisey as we had room by the pool which was used until very late despite signs saying it closed at 10pm. Air conditioning was very poor. Good location though near wet n wild and universal and I trolley but would think carefully before booking and consider paying a bit more for higher quality even if you are just using it as a base.

Regrets

Posted 29-Jul-2014
Awful, fees never discussed were charged at check-in, almost no water pressure in shower-impossible to wash hair, pool smelled funny, room smelled of mold, towels were stained, shuttle was only once per day and hours after park opening and hours before park closing. AC worked but was loud. Rowdy crowds outside all hours of night listening to music. I could go on and on. Pay the extra $10 per night and stay elsewhere.

Leaves you dreaming of a two star hotel

Posted 29-Jul-2014
The hotel staff were very friendly and accommodating. The rooms were old, dilapidated and smelled of mold and Lysol. There were no bugs thankfully. Rooms were cleaned nice daily. Again, staff was great. Continental breakfast was not worth it. Coffee was terrible and selection, ridiculous. Also, they promoted a shuttle service that "goes to all parks". It went to Universal and Epcot only. It left at 10:15 am and picked up at 7:15 pm daily. Not early enough or late enough to really work. The price was right which is why we stayed, but a few dollars more per night is worth it. I was dreaming of a 2 Star hotel.

Ok for the price

Posted 19-Jun-2014
Pros: Close to Universal Studios.
Cons: Room needs to be cleaned throuroughly.
Room was not clean. Box springs are very old and dirty. Didn't want to look at the mattress. Bathroom creapy. Sheets looked like someone had slep there before.
