My stay was equivalent to price paid. I got a good deal from Expedia. I think we got a renovated room b/c the furniture was modern and the beds seemed new. There is a lot of construction going on the premises right now so that is probably why the rate was cheaper. This didn't bother us the first few nights but the last day we were leaving, loud drilling could be heard outside. I needed to stay a 4th night and the woman at front desk was really accomodating and agreed to match my rate paid from expedia.
Small issues: the window lacks a good lock. It was locked with a cheap metal clip, that's all. And since we had a 1st floor room, anyone could have broken in to our room esp. with all the construction and workers walking around. The hallways had an awful smell of cleaning liquids but you couldn't smell it once you got to your room. I assume this might be gone after they finish renovation. The bathroom was not newly remodeled but it was clean and functional. I always give housekeeping good tips so my supplies were replenished and they did a good job with the beds and cleaning.
Parking is free but hard to find a spot if you get back to hotel really late at night like we did. Free wi-fi in room and also 2 computers w/ free internet in lobby and a printer. Free breakfast is beverage and a small banana nut bread which I didn't eat. If you want the full breakfast with eggs, potatoes, etc., you have to pay a little over $5 which isn't bad.
Location is good. Across from the Convention Center, next to IHop and Denny's. There is also a grocery that closes at 11pm across from hotel (walking distance) that carries anything you could need including wine. We went to Universal Studios and it was about 5 min away by car. It is also very close to International Drive by car.
I have a feeling that after the renovations it will be much better to stay at. I would consider staying again because of the price.
