1st room we were given was horrible. Door did not close without slamming, toilet didn't work, and sink would not drain, and all furniture was old and beaten up. The next room we were given was not much better.

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
We hated every single thing about this hotel, except for the fact that the "premium suite w/ king bed" was spacious, and we liked the microwave and fridge. That's about all the positive we can say. Here's the rest: 1) We tried to call the property on three different days, at several different times, and never once did anyone pick up the phone. 2) The lady who checked us in (Stacey) could not have been less pleasant. Not sure she smiled once, nor made eye contact the whole time. 3) We'd paid for the Premium suite, but were given a single room...right by the elevator, extremely loud vending area and overflowing garbage bin. (We had to haul our bags back down to get reassigned.) 4) Our "premium" suite had a missing toilet paper holder, long black hairs in the tub, black mold on the shower walls, and a few pubic hairs on the shower curtain and bedding. There was no bedding provided for the pull out couch bed, but they did bring it to us fairly quickly when requested (in person, because neither of the room phones worked; though since no one ever answers anyway, probably moot). 5) Shuttle to Universal is frustrating at best, needing reservations made by 2pm the day before you want to use it, but if check in is at 3pm, you need to be in person in the lobby at 7am the next morning to make a reservation. The shuttle also ends at 8pm (the park closes at 7, so if you have dinner plans you'll need to walk back -- ZERO fun in the rain). 6) There is no shuttle service to Orlando Airport.
