okayish if you are really cash strappedPosted 29-Aug-2014
Pros: Staff was not rude
Cons: Hot water efficiency, consistent room service (supplies etc) and thorough cleaning of rooms esp if guest have smoked in them
Location: Perfect location- taxi to Universal was less than $10
We were looking for a place to sleep-very basic nothing fancy but this hotel really did not meet my simple expectations. The room we were in smelled of smoke-which was terrible especially at first entry each time. Since our nostrils were adjusting pretty well we decided to overlook this fact since we checked in pretty late plus we wanted to have access to the other room where our friends where staying (there was a connecting door in between our rooms). However, thru the 5 days we were there we had various issues- our rooms were not always replenished with enough supplies- towels, cups and once when we asked for our towels it took hotel staff over 45 minutes (and a second call) to deliver the towels to us (we were quite sleepy and wanted to shower before bed). The second things that really got to me was HOT water. On day 3 we had issues with not having water- until we left the tap running for a good 20 minutes. Our friends did not have hot water in their bathroom sink -they had to bathe their baby in our sink :(. The hallways arent the best as well. Not hotel related but the black angus $4.99 breakfast advertised is not really $4.99, be prepared to pay about $10 instead.

Very convenient location to Universal Studios.Posted 29-Aug-2014
Pros: Room had microwave, refridgerator, and dehumidifier. Parking was free. Landscape and pool area was nice. Hallways had interesting movie posters.
Cons: Re-fit plumbing fixtures in rooms. Shower head and faucet valves stuck so shower only worked partway to limit water pressure.
Location: Excellent location for Universal Studios. Wet n' Wild across the street. Many restaurants and bars as well as fun night life with a mile.
Room was good for value through Expedia.com. Room was clean every day. Room had a dehumidifier which I have yet to see at other hotels. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Location is perfect to visit Universal Studios. Located in the middle of all the best restaraunts.

Good locationPosted 26-Aug-2014
Pros: Location good and restaurant great
Cons: Internet service that was advertised that was not working. New beds
Location: Location in the centre of International drive with plenty of shops, bars, restaurants and attractions nearby.
Hotel was okay, staff friendly till there was a problem then there answer was contact Expedia. No internet in the rooms due to long standing problem so had to change hotels. Beds VERY uncomfortable, one squeaked each time you moved and the other had no springs one side so easy to roll off! I might just have been unlucky but then again.... Restaurant attached was great, staff friendly and food good.

Free shuttle to Disney and close to Universal.Posted 24-Aug-2014
The staff was friendly, did the job. The hotel is simple, a little old, but clean. The room smells old, but not much. Hotel is about 15 minutes walk to Universal, and offers free shuttle service to Disney and other attractions. They have free shuttle service to Disney at 07:30 am and 12:30 pm and back to the hotel at 10:00pm. it is very well located on International Drive.

Perfect locationPosted 12-Aug-2014
We needed a place to stay while we played at Universal Studios. I was looking for comfortable beds, hot showers, and cold air conditioning all in a central location at a really good price. This is exactly what we found. We're a family of four. Only complaint: the pillows! Very flat and lumpy. Thank goodness, I always bring my own, so my husband just doubled up and was fine.

Disappointing cleanliness,reception staff friendlyPosted 10-Aug-2014
Got good reviews so that's why I picked it but when I got there the carpets were filthy and needed replaced. Had to ask for towels on many occasions because cleaners never left any. Beds were clean and staff were friendly

You get what you pay forPosted 9-Aug-2014
As soon as we got there we were warned about taking towels out of the building, ie to theme parks etc. This is understandable to reduce costs of lost towels, but this would also explain why for 3 people they only have us 2 towels. We had to complain to get any more. Anything we asked for was either a hassle or never showed. The entire building was humid, which explains why there was a loud dehumidifier in every room. The tub wouldn't drain. It's called movieland because of the random, repeating posters around the building. There is a desk in the lobby promising cheap tickets to all local attractions that states there is no catch...until you almost seal the deal and they try to swindle you into a vacation club plan while keeping your tickets hostage. The staff is not knowledgeable, unhelpful, and unfriendly. Every vending machine in the building is broken and the only ice machine is on the top floor and it was in pieces, not to mention half the lights on that floor were out. Literally half. Do not go there unless you simply want a hard bed to lay on for the night. I had low expectations going in and this hotel didn't even come close to meeting them.
