        Located directly on international drive, free parking. Rooms although basic were clean and included a fridge/hairdryer ect. Pool area was generally very quiet but this coudl be because our trip was slightly off peak season. For the price of the stay I feel the hotel offers value for money.

        Furnishings/ decor is in need of a update, pool water clean but bottom and sides of the pool need a good clean. Breakfast which was included was poor quality, served in a area which was to small for the size of the hotel. However the poor quality of breakfast seems to wide-spread around the florida area, as also stayed at a 4* hotel during this trip and breakfast was consistently poor there also.

        The location was great everything was at a walling distance !

        The ac unit in our room didn't work properly. I payed for a king bed and they transferred me and my wife to a double queen room and didn't refund us the difference ! Not pleased at all with the hotel as far as accommodation.

        The hotel is in a great location if you are going to Wet and Wild. There are plenty of choices for food within walking distance.

        It was cheap enough, and we appreciated the that the walk to Universal Studios wasn't longer than 20 minutes by foot.

        The shuttle service comes once a day, and is horribly unreliable. Sometimes its on time, most of the time its late. Also the towels and blankets were skimpy and scratchy. The carpet felt dirty.

        it should be motel its so filthy i would never return spoiled the hols it was that bad

        the dirt of the place some of the staff were so rude

      • Family with children

        I liked the pool, the most, and the fact that you could buy your tickets to Disney, Universal, or Seaworld in advance instead of waiting in line. Also the fact that the theme of the hotel was nice and the lobby was very pretty, animal statues by the pool and good breakfast that which you have tables to eat for. We arrived a day earlier than we reserved and it was all fine.

        The cleaning could be better, we expected a clean floor but it wasn't. The hallways could be vacuumed as well as the rooms. There's no microwave in our room when we wanted to heat something up.

      • Family with children
        3.2

        Only two towels for a room with two double beds. Bathroom is akin to third world with mold on caulking and paint peeling from ceiling. Housekeeping made the beds, and replaced towels ... thats it ... garbage wasn't removed. Hotel room smells musty.

        Near Universal Studios Orlando

        I wasn't very happy with this hotel. I reserved a King room a week before and when I got there, they gave my room away to someone else and told me everything was booked. The lady at the front desk said all she had was a standard double available, so we had to settle with that. Being with my fiance, it was not pleasant sleeping in two seperate beds. Whats the point of making a reservation, if they will not hold the room for you?! Also, the rooms could use a bit of cleaning & remodeling.

        cost-effective, the room is clean and the brekfast is ok. the front desk guy is really helpful in some sense. location is convinient. bus stop in front of the hotel.

        1. They didn't help me to take the shuttle, so i missed the shuttle and then have to take a taxi to Disney. i had a quarrel with them. 2. The room is near the street, so it's really noisy at night.

        good place to stay..near universal, seaworld and easy access to I4

        terrible breakfest. Thet don't replenish.....there's only toast and butter....No ham or cheese. The spoons were out they removed the milk and cereals....terrible bathroom. The bedroom stinks. The towels are terrible. WiFI in the lobby is not enough for 3 or more persons.The curtain doesn't close everything.

        The location.

        My room was deteriorated. The sink was broken. Wi Fi signal was poor so wouldn't connect even in the lobby area. The cleaning people did not clean the room. They remade the bed and put new towels. Very dirty room with roaches, broken shower, broken down TV.

        Location

        Leakage in the bathroom and from bathroom to the room; toals are very small and do not absorb it properly; in two days I did not have one of my rooms cleaned, so I had to complaint; ice machines were not working
