The first thing I'm going to say is don't let your first impression be your last. Upon arriving in our room we were quite disappointed as the rooms are rather tired and shabby looking, however, after coming back into our room later on, we realised that maybe we'd been a little too quick to judge and our room wasn't that bad at all.
We were in the tower block and our room was a very nice size and nicely clean, our maid was clearly very thourough. We also had a nice view over International Drive, great for watching the thunderstorms!
The staff were all very friendly and helpful and the hotel had a nice atmosphere, I'd say for families wanting a value-for-money hotel with plenty for everyone this hotel is ideal.
The lifts were a little slow, although it's easy to see work is being done in this area as while we were there the security of the lifts/stairs were updated which was comforting to know.
One complaint my mam and I did have though was the shuttle service, we thought the times were limited and the taxis were a little unreliable. That being said, I'm not entirely sure how much the hotel actually has to do with the running of this service...
Overall we did enjoy our stay and for what we were wanting (which was somewhere clean to sleep and a good location on a budget) this hotel certainly delivered. The only reason I would perhaps not recommend this hotel is if you're looking for a more luxury hotel.
