My wife, 2 kids and I were booked, as part of a package, to stay at the hotel from christmas day to the 1st of Jan 2015. When we got to the room it just wasn't what we expected. The bath looked liked it hadn't been clean, the carpet was an eyesore, the mattress was horrible - I would have... More

***This motel is now called The Floridian Express*** We stayed there overnight the weekend of January 17th and 18th and although I knew this was going to be a budget motel I was anything but impressed. Things started with the check in which this hotel does at 4pm, instead of the standard 3pm. So you would think that would give... More

We booked two rooms for three nights at this hotel because of location and affordability. I have stayed in cheap hotels and hostels around the world and never had such a horrible experience. The first morning our friends staying in the second room woke up to bed bugs feasting on them. They caught over 8 of them in a cup... More

Our room did smell musty, although the cleaner kindly left us some spray which rectified the issue. The AC was noisy so I turned it off. The pool was very cold, so couldn't swim which was a shame, as I thought it would be heated. Great value for money. To be honest we spent so much time out and about... More

Do not stay her worst hotel ever staff and management are very rude, rooms are dirty as is the whole hotel. Had to move rooms twice as there was a problem. Best bit was the lovely staff at the tiki bar very kind and helpful and full of information on where to go.

I have stayed in this hotel multiple times on holidays to florida, and although some things are still great about it others left me thinking I will never stay here again!  Pros.. you get what you pay for here. The rooms are what you would expect for a budget hotel.  They are clean and comfortable. Mrs. B is still there... More

I have used this hotel many times for over 10 years both in its previous incarnation as the holiday inn express and as the Metropolitan and it has been refurbished several times. The old breakfast area has been halved in size which is a shame but for a central hotel with free shuttle rides to Disney parks and with a... More

We stayed for the Wrestlemania week in 2008 and the hotel was ok, bit dated but ok with decent facilities like the gym, pool and internet. Second trip in 2009 was a let down from the year before, breakfast was ok, room was poor facilities where still decent. Third trip in 2013 the queue of people in reception when we... More
