“I will not stay here again!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013 via mobile

I stayed here for 8 nights, sincerely I really want the time goes fast, and the less time I spent in the hotel were better.

First of all, a room for 4 and we have to go to the lobby to ask for another towel because they were just 3, They dont have towels in lobby so they give us 2 hand towels. The water in the tub gets stucks and if you take mote than 4 minutes in your bath your feets get covered by water, its nasty. My pillow had blood marks, the mattres were so messed up and meld up.

The staff is good, the location is the only thing I could say its perfect. 5 minutes from Universal, 6 minutes to Premium Outlets.
You had a lot of choices to eat in Walking Distance, in front of the hotel is a game room, frozen yogurt etc.

I dont reccomend this hotel, It doesnt worth the price cause low price doesnt mean you have to sleep in a very very low conditions of cleaning and comfort

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

We booked this hotel because it was on International Drive and the price was reasonable. Like another review I saw today.... You get what you pay for. This is a great location, there is a lot to do within walking distance.
The room was decently clean. The beds had clean linens on them (always a good thing). Our a/c had issues and we had to get them to come fix it. The listing says the room comes with a refrigerator and coffee maker of which we had neither. We had to call for the refrigerator to be brought up to the room and did not get a coffee maker until the next day because they had to wait on some new ones to come in. This was not a good thing since I am a big coffee drinker. The breakfast was a joke. You basically had cereal and toast oh and if you were one of the lucky few a cup of coffee since the containers were always empty.
The front desk was really nice. The phone system got knocked out during that massive storm that went through on 3/24. We had a wake up call in for 7 am and they actually come and knocked on our door to wake us up which was really nice of them.
The room was not perfect, it needs to be upgraded bad, but it was not super bad either. If you are going to be there for a Disney vacation then it will be perfect, you just need a place to sleep.
(We were there 3/21/13-3/25/13)

Room Tip: 3rd floor was quiet.

The room smelled and was out dated and old. Not at all what the pictures show. Breakfast is a joke, what little they had was not replenished once the ran out. The hotel looks and feels more like a motel than anything. The door wouldn't close, only one lock on the door, do not disturb sign was missing, a room for 4 with 3 towels, toilet paper was not replenished. I will not be staying in this hotel again.

The hotel is in an awesome location, however the rooms need major upgrading and remodeling...The beds were pretty comfortable.
