“Cheap and yucky”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2014

Well, its like I always say with hotels - you get what you pay for. That being said, when you pay $30 for a hotel you cant really expect much. The check in was easy and the parking was easy so I guess that is something. The room was kinda yucky but, again, for what I paid it was as clean as I could expect. It seems to me that Kissimmee as a whole is pretty crappy. Most of the hotel in the area look cheap and run down and same goes for the type of stores in the area. It looked like the only nice areas are right next to the theme parks so stay there if you want somewhere nicer.

My fiancé and I were just looking for a cheap place to stay near Orlando for a night. We found this Econo Lodge and it was in a great location: plenty of restaurants, gas stations, a Wal-mart, putt putt places, and other entertainment nearby. We had pretty low expectations....as long as there were no bugs it was tolerable. The good: comfortable king bed, couch, computer in your room, great location, free wifi, free breakfast

The bad: weird smell, stains on sheets, in dire need of updating

Probably not ideal for the family but if it's just you or you and another person it's not too bad.

Stayed for one night. Old hotel and it looks it. Non-smoking room that you could tell had been a smoking room with a poor attempt to cover odors with perfumey room fresheners. Breakfast was bare mimimum. No real juice. If you ask for hot water for tea, the desk clerk had to take your Styrofoam cup of water to the back room to nuke it. Thank God it was one night

This hotel was very, very comfortable and clean. All appliances worked properly and there were plenty of clean towels and washcloths in the room. It smelled pleasant and the staff was courteous. The continental breakfast leaves a bit to be desired but there it a plethera of options available in close proximity for a good meal anytime of day.

We stayed here on Friday night....ugh. The bathroom floor was filthy, couldn't get the shower to turn on normally until we were told by reception to pull the handle really hard. Tile floor inside the room by the front door looked like it hadn't been mopped in months, similar to the bathroom. Doors were filthy and hadn't been wiped in forever. Chalking smeared all over the tub and tub walls. Small broom and a dust rag left on the floor inside the room, so I guess they do SOME cleaning! Woke up several times during the night from noise in the surrounding rooms. Not on our list of future places to stay. On the other hand, the staff was pleasant

It was a nice stay but if you have time and money to stay elsewhere do so. The place was clean. It had been recently painted and the painters were definitely not professionals. There was paint on the tops of drapes, on the handrails in the bathroom and there were some spots that were missed completely. Unfortunately, the maid service was not the best. We left something on the floor on purpose to see if the room was being swept or vacuumed daily, but it was not! The staff was nice and helpful. The free breakfast was exactly "what you pay for is what you get!"

Room Tip: no restaurant or fitness center

First, in my opinion, this hotel is dishonest. They advertise one price, but then when you show up they try to charge you a "resort fee." First, that is unethical, and second, how can you charge a resort fee if you are not a resort? Anyway, the front desk staff was pleasant enough, friendly. The facilities are VERY dated. Everything looks 1970's era. For the first time in my life, I have seen a hotel in the USA that does not have a bathtub, just a shower stall. There was a hole in the wall. It was creepy, because it was opposite the beds. The walls were dirty. The TV had a hole in it, like it was used as a weapon in a fight.
Still, they call themselves a resort.
They offered a breakfast, but it is a waffle iron, some little powdered dougnuts and some other breads. The tiny lobby was very crowded with people trying to eat. I decided to skip the hassle and go down the street. If they try to say this is what the "resort fee" is for, then that would be a bad joke.

Room Tip: Try the place next door.
