Stayed one night while visiting theme parks in Orlando. Great value. Comfortable and clean rooms. Staff was very friendly. Hot tub hit the spot after a long day. The location was centrally located and easy short distance to attractions.

I have stayed in hundred of hotels in the last 15 years. For the cost, $10.00, this hotel offers the worst breakfast ever. Clean rooms, beautiful and great chilean bartender, excellent front desk personnel, awful pre-cooked lousy food for a $10.00 breakfast. I need to stay here fot a whole week and after today's experience we plan to eat out... More

We had a really nice stay, comfortable rooms and good service. The location is awesome, close to Universal Studios and Wet'n'Wild and good restaurants. The breakfast is great, but it's not included, we had to pay for it. Good value hotel.

This hotel was comfy, good for the price and not a long drive to universal which is great. The floor was a bit dirty though. Other than that staff were lovely and very helpful. Generally i would consider staying again as the location is great.

Got a good deal on this place so I can't really complain compared to other similarly priced hotels. The rooms were spacious and no complaints about the beds. It is definitely an older building and a tad rough around the edges. Only complaints were that you can't check in til 4, and the in room coffee maker was broken. Overall... More

The hotel was recently remodeled. Our room was beautiful. The staff could not be nicer, extremely accommodating. The location is great: close to Universal Studios & SeaWorld. Wifi was good. Not 1 but 2 hot tubs! Pool area was inviting, clean.

As always I stayed for a few nights and had a satisfying stay. Great staff and professionalism and the room was very good. For staying there prior to that day, I was given an upgrade. The suite was facing the water. Beautiful!
