The beds are very firm and I was unable to get comfortable after a day of continuous walking. The fitness room should be non existent as none of the machines worked.

WORST HOTEL EXPERIENCE!! MISLEADING PICTURES ONLINE! This is a cheap motel disguised as an inn. I would not recommend this hotel to anybody. My boyfriend and I checked in and as soon as we opened the room it smelled musty and gross. IT was extremely hot in the room and the musty smell was almost unbearable. We then noticed the bathtub had 2 dead bugs on it obviously showing that the room had not been cleaned. To make matters worse the bedsheets were gross and dirty. The white comforter had dirt stains showing that it had not been washed after the previous guests had been there. Less than an hour later my boyfriend and I went to the front desk to complain and ask for a refund since we would definitely not be staying there. They refused to give us a refund claiming that they sent a maid to our room and she said we had slept on the bed. We hadn't even been checked in for 30 minutes much less enough time to sleep on those grimy beds. We left and had to pay for yet another room at a nicer hotel. VERY UPSET. DO NOT GO HERE!!

Close to the parks, with shuttle service to universal. A little outdated, but affordable and overall a great value, especially if you have pets. Would dry here again.

First off the bed was rock hard. No blanket on bed, just a sheet and a very heavy comforter. No Kleenex in the room. Third day there, housekeepers came in. They gathered trash and towels, but that was it. I had packed up our stuff before we left for the day so housekeeping could clean. We got back and had 2 towels left by housekeeping. No wash clothes, hand towels, still no Kleenex. Bed was not made, coffee was not restocked. Basically housekeeping picked up trash and towels and left our room. The man at gift shop was very nice. Front desk help was hit or miss. To a couple of them it felt like I was burdening them by being there. We did not eat at restaurant connected to us because prices were high and not really our kind of food. It rained everyday we were there, day and night. It really would be helpful if they had covered smoking section, based on how many of us were unable to sit in courtyard and enjoy being there, simply because we got soaked from the rain. Overall our experience was just ok here.
