This hotel called itself a "resort" and imposes a small "resort fee". As you can see this hotel is on international drive which is known as a safe tourist area but this hotel is on the far end of international drive and is not in safe location. The hotel was gross, unsafe, dark, and unclean. When I say dark and... More

This hotel is not that bad. The rooms are very clean at least 1121 is. RIGHT on the strip with EVERYTHING there. Good service if you ask for it. Only problem is you have to ask for basic necessities. As far as shampoo and things of that nature. Not too shabby for a cheap kind of get away for you... More

I hadn’t written a review of a hotel before but the experience I had in this hotel changed my mind. I hadn’t big expectations about it; I just waited for a clean place where to sleep after an exhausting day in Disney. Well, I hadn’t even a place where to sleep, because although we had a reservation and we called... More

I have no words to describe our experience in this hotel (now called Floridian Express). Sadly, if I had those words they wouldn't be any good. We were a group of seven people spending a night in Orlando and we booked three room a couple of days in advance. Because we were checking in late, during the day of our... More

I have stayed here twice now: the first time in 2013, the second in 2014. The first time - the hotel appeared to be undergoing a renovation, so I disgarded my thoughts on its aesthetics. As for service, we were checked in by the most rude and non-chalant woman ever - she acted as if it were an inconvenience that... More
