The hotel is nice at first, you have a few thugs hanging outside, which is expected at most any big hotel. You walk in through the lobby and it's nice, you go to the elevator and step in. It smells like body odor and like the elevator cables are burning. You get out and there are odd people in the... More

Where do I begin? The people smoking pot in the room next to us or the fact that NONE of the electrical outlets worked? Bugs, VERY rude staff, broken fridge, dirty pool. Dont trust the photos this place is trash.

Cheap, but still, stay away. It's so bad, it seems that ownership and management are deliberately killing this hotel, which may have been quite grand in its day. The place is filthy and broken, the bar is open until 9 and has nothing to serve, the restaurant is basically closed, except for the lamest of breakfast buffets and a pathetic... More

I made our reservation over the phone with a credit card prior to arriving. The lady who helped me over the phone was great.

I will have to say most of the staff was nice and friendly. My problem was the last day of my stay. I was reading poolside, and someone came out to me and was very rude, asking if some children in the pool were mine. He did not ask any other adult, and the lady that was with him rolled... More

First of all when you enter the hotel it smells like cat urine. Then the elevator smelled like burnt cables, and when u think it cabt get worse the room was as stinky as the entrance. There were even many prostitutes in the hotel and plenty of people in the parking lot. Skip this hotel not good at all.

At one time this most likely was a "Grand" Hotel. Sadly it has been run down over the years. As of 2014 the newest owners are making headway into returning it to its former state. It has very a very nice lobby and common area and a nice "baby grand" Piano Bar. (It would be nice if they changed up... More

I went with my family to visit Orlando. It looks good from outside but from inside its all mess. I don't have problem with front desk clerk. Rooms are not that much good.
