“OMG!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2011

My partner and I have stayed here on many occassions, hoping that it got better. They are now out of receivorship and still do not appear to be putting money into the hotel.
Rooms -
If you are looking for a fancy room - not here. They do an ok job of trying to keep them clean, yet they are old and falling to pieces. The carpets are a mess, the tubs are nasty,
etc. Everytime I stay here I have marks - like little bites on my body .
Bartenders -
like any bar - they are nice to you when you are buying drinks and tipping them, stop
buying drinks and most ( not all ) don't give you the time of the day.
Food -
The resturaunt is actually pretty good and resonably priced to . Great service everytime
I go.
Grounds :
Horrible - kind of the " lipstick on a pig " . They spruce up an area or two and then let the
rest go. It may be me, but I do not think anyone staying at any hotel should be able to look out your window and see a porta potty, large trash dumpster, storage of signs etc.
and there are many rooms that those are all that you can see. I have seen nicer hotels
hide them with large schrubs, fences, etc. and clean or paint the side walks, please.
overall :
One could say the rooms were cheap at $65.00 a night , yet no other hotel on Orange
Blossom trail charges that much in this neighborhood - so they are not cheap.
It seems the dirtier this place gets the more dirty people it attracts. There used to be
cruising of nice people. now it is dirty hookers and homelss people from the trail.
I really need to find a nicer place to hang out - even my friends don't want to hang
out with me because I go to this dump.

You have to know what to expect here in order to make this place work.

1. This is a Gay Resort..(motel) it has 5 bars attached to it.. A pool bar..a bear bar, a disco, a video bar and a Theatre. As a gay man.. I had planned on visiting this place for drinks on my trip to florida.. I dont drink and drive so I decided to stay here. For that alone its perfect.

2. No frills room.. I paid 65 dollars a night for a room facing Rock Lake. The lake is actually nice. The room should just be a place to change, shower and sleep.. They are out of date and need a good rehaul.. There are no shower gels or creams. not even a hair dryer. (Housekeeping might have one). I brought my own and I was fine.

3. The resort is a great place to cruise guys.. (some young, some old.. some you have to pay) if that isnt for you and you want a special suite where you are pampered and close to the parks . go somewhere else. There are plenty of cheap nice places closer to parks.. they also have screaming kids.

4. Location is not great either, but again it has the bars and a cute pool . It has shows and entertainment. (Raja from drag race was just here) - drinks are 2.50!. and the food in the restaurant was also fine. Vinny the bartender is Hot and a sweetheart and at night usually just tends bar wearing a jock strap.

5. At night on weekends the entire resort becomes like a night club.. you are allowed to go from bar to bar and pool with drink in hand both inside and out.. was a lot of fun

If you are on a budget and want to have a little fun. stay here. I was able to taxi to downtown to other bars. very close to Universal. Just know what to expect

At around $60.00 per night the rooms don't completely suck. Room #213 was clean, smelled nice, everything worked in the room, had decent linens and pillows.
However room decor is disgusting! No alarm clock, hair dryer, toiletries or adjustable air conditioning. I'd gladly pay more for modern accommodations.

Front desk person was not friendly or forth comming with answers to basic questions. More (professional) security is needed around court yard espscially at night and dawn. Adults like to play with other adults. Anyone under the age of 21 should not be allowed on property or allocated special nights only...

Bar tenders I encountered were super nice and pored a strong drink.

Basic elements of a gay themed resort are missing (strippers, porn, hot tub, clothing optional sun bathing, massages/spa, fun locals, etc). The drag queens/shows is past it's prime and over done...

From the local media I know the property is in financial disaster. For god sakes; get a buyer from Palm Springs or Lauderdale in there and turn the place around....

I live in Orlando and stay at the " P house " so I do not have to drink and drive. The costs of the rooms are fair ( consdiering what you get ). The drink prices are very high.
The building is old and there is not a lot they can do because of that. They do keep the rooms clean considering. They could spend a few more dollars on landscaping -trim the bushes, weed, and put some mulch down - a cheap and nice improvement. They couls also use some fresh paint on the building. side walks, parking spaces. The owners feel they are offering a bargain, so we should be accept the way it looks. There is no bargain here - many Orlando area gay bars are cheaper. The only bargain here is getting a room and avoiding a dui. I would rec the Flamingo in St. Pete if you are looking for a nice gay hotel - prices similar

Have been going there for about 10 yrs....I know times are hard but they need to put some money in the place...This last 2 times we went the walkways were collapsing and instead of fixing it they just blocked it off...The rooms went from dirty to nasty...I hope they decide to give it some TLC...It use to be such a great place...We have alot of good memories there...This is the first negative review we have put on trip advisor and dissapointed to do so....Only doing it in hopes that the owners read them and make corrections...We miss the old P-House and hope it makes a comeback...But until it dose we will stay elsewhere when visiting Fla.

Would I recommend the P-House? Well, I guess it really depends on what you are looking for. The Hotel has been around for years, so it is old and dated. On the upside, the rooms are pretty clean and quiet. However, If you should want a private "intimate" moment, CLOSE THE BLINDS or the guys cruising the balcony might break down the door or smash the window (no joke). If you are a sophisticated character, who isn't into the nightclub/cruise bar/bathhouse scene - do not stay a P-House. You will NOT like it.

Since you have your hotel, restaurant, nightclub, and bathhouse all in one, it is a very convenient place. However, it is not close enough to any other alternative nightclub to be considered convenient. Additionally, it is located in a very dangerous part of town. So BE AWARE!!! Do not leave the resort unless you are in a car or cab! Furthermore, Orlando PD watches for intoxicated drivers like a buzzer would for roadkill....be careful!

Although have been to downtown Orlando many times, we have never sayed at the Parliment House. The room was suprisingly clean and not noisy. The cleaning staff was pleaset. Front desk full of attitude. Weekday rates for Florida residents make this place a bargin, weekend rates are on the high side. The bars are overpriced and drinks are served like Uncle Charlies parties, in plastic. Beer in cans only. Evenings are busy but this is a clickish place with old seeking young. I think we will stay someplace else next time. Riff raft in and out 24 hours a day. Like a bathhouse.
