I cannot believe the people who make a concerted effort to complain on here when they have paid so little and expect a 5* Sandals resort. This budget hotel costs next to nothing but you certainly feel safe, clean and comfortable! Ok, I agree it isn't luxury but it is clean, spacious and has great facilities (air conditioning, comfy beds, shower) - all you need when you come back from a day out in the theme parks. The international staff (one guy was from Spain and one guy from New York) made our stay in this hotel most memorable as they always greeted you with a smile - even my family members who phoned us had to mention how polite the staff sounded on reception when forwarding their calls. When we arrived our television had some connection problems and imediately we were seen to and changed to a new room. The hotel is in a great location - although we didn't really use the facilities within the hotel (food, bar, pool etc) as there is so much choice in Orlando we would definately stay at this hotel again as it was perfect for our needs.
If there were any negative comments - which is really difficult as there isn't much to say - would be the fake pizza leaflets delivered under our room door every night, surely security could sort this out? Maybe this has been rectified since!
One food tip for all future travellers - go to Bahama Breeze for amazing battered king prawns and stop at Dairy Queen for some gorgeous ice cream!!
