When we arrived we promptly checked-in and escorted to our room. First impressions were not great, the room had a musty smell, the bathtub had been used with hair still in it, the walls dirty and stained. I went to the front desk to let them know and they responded very well, concerned and helpful. After a look by one... More

Usually going into this sort of establishment you would expect to "get what you pay for", but the crew was so accommodating that we felt we stayed in a 4 star hotel! Everything from the check-in to the day we checked out was flawless the reception staff were very... More

Breakfast was disgusting, cereal, bad coffee. Hallways and infastructure was crumbling, rusting and even the lightest rain shower created drips all over the floor, and drips from the rusted overhead beams.... More

I didn't like the hotel facilities much less attention received by the office staff. The cafeteria staff was very friendly.

You get what you pay for, you don't go all the way to Orlando to stay in your room. These are just a base, cleaned everyday, clean towels daily also. Ok, in need of a makeover. If you want luxury you will have to pay for it and this at only $40 is adequate as a base price.
