A holiday of a lifetime I would stay there again especially when universal studio was only 10 minutes walk which was also a great place to go if you want a great time. The other great thing about Orlando was the restaurants mmmmmmmm.

We planned a last-minute mini-vacation to Florida during Thanksgiving break. We just needed to get away from the cold Cleveland weather and planned a budget-cutting trip. The Floridian Express seemed like the perfect place to stay, it was located on International drive, and only 10 minutes away by foot from Orlando Studios, where I wanted to go to see Harry... More

We stayed here in September, and had a pleasant stay, but today had £315.64 taken out of our bank account by Floridan Express. Do not give them your card details. Our holiday was paid in full before we went and we checked out with no money due. We gave them our card details as you do when you check in,... More

At a $25 per night deal with breakfast, shuttle service, and wifi, how could I say no? Well, we quickly learned that it comes with a price. Once we walked in the door, we received a greeting from the "concierge" who was really just a person wanting to sell us on coupons and tickets for the parks - little did... More

I travelled to Florida with a friend and we wanted somewhere on idrive that was cheap. We were on a budget but didn't really need a luxurious hotel. Wouldn't choose to stay here with my husband or family as too scare very basic but for us to crash after a busy day round the parks thus did the trick. Rooms... More

We were on our way to visit family near Tampa, and had been driving with two young girls from North Carolina all day. We decided to stop overnight in Orlando and spend the day at SeaWorld before finishing our drive. We found an unbeatable price for a room (less than $30) and decided to take a chance and book online.... More

We needed a place that was close to Universal Studios and affordable. The Floridian met our expectations on both these accounts. The staff was helpful and friendly and the location was great! It took us 20 minutes to walk to the entry of Universal and it was central to all of our favourite shopping stops: Orlando Premium Outlets - both... More

This is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. The rooms are filthy and the bed sheets are even worse. The first room we had was infested with cock roaches and even though the staff told us they've get the room exterminated if they did it didn't kill any of them. We had to move rooms when the bathroom... More
