Clean, comfortable and well worth the money. We arrived a little late but still cruised right thru the check in. Would have liked to have a TV that had an HDMI port. And the pool was a little dirty but it was a nice stay.

I have been in customer service for a lot of years and from check in to check out. I was very much impressed with your staff. I had a problem with the iron being damaged and it ruining a new shirt and the Front Desk Clerk apologized and took care of the issue. I would definitely stay at this hotel... More

I really enjoyed staying here. My boyfriend and I were on our way to the Florida Keys and planned on staying here on the way down. I was very impressed even though it was a quick overnight stay. The room was large and had a great view of Orlando. We had coffee the next morning and hit the road so... More

The hotel was basic but was good value for money, in the main due to the quality of the service from the staff. The room was functional and very clean, if a little tired with regard to the decor. The reception team were very friendly and helpful, providing a very prompt service when checking us in and out, they were... More

If you're planning to visit Universal Studios (and w/o a car) this is a great choice - have free shuttle to and from the Park, great for family / long travel w/ laundry facilities, game area and pool.. Ticket office in the hotel can be helpful if you haven't purchase ticket prior to arrival, yet would recommend to stay away... More

We have stayed at this hotel three times in the past year. We live about 2 hours from Orlando and this location seemed perfect for our needs. This time was not a good experience. We came back from a long day at Disney, tired and just wanting to go to bed. Well, the smell in the room was so bad... More

Great location, down the street from Universal Studios, International Drive and also across from Wet & Wild. The staff was from friendly and accommodating. My husband wasn't happy with the first room given and we were quickly provided a suite, no questions asked.

The rooms were a great size, very comfortable as well. It's very handy having a ticket office for the theme parks in the foyer and even better that the shuttle bus picks up and drops off from here. That made our lives very easy. Definitely a great hotel for those on a budget and with families

We had booked this hotel through a discount website. When we arrived the desk Clerk was unable to locate the reservation. The manager became involved and was so patient and really went out of her way to help. Long story short the booking company had booked the room under my husband first name and my first name- Who knew?!?! The... More

Overall it was a nice, comfortable place. It just needs to be updated, the shower handle was loose, one light in bathroom burnt out and was never replaced, drain was slow. No free breakfast. Great location to be near most Orlando attractions. Though it was best to travel with a rental car. They do have a shuttle service to parks... More

Dear Allie, Thank you for your review. I am glad that you enjoyed your stay and will certainly pass on the housekeeping issues you mentioned. We should certainly notice when a shower valve is loose and a light is out but do not hesitate to let a member of the hotel staff know if it goes unfixed so that it... More
