“roach motel without the roaches!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2012

The staff is unconcearned about any issues you may have. The hotel is NOWHERE NEAR the quality you would expect from Extended stay and affiliate hotels. The hotel room was fairly clean, but didn't smell clean. There was black lint or dirt in the sheets (not bedbugs don't worry) The toilet was broken, and the kitchenette sink was clogged. the room was very, very small and dated. there was mooshed old bubblegum and stains all over the carpet. I would expect to pay about 35-45.00 for a hotel room like this in a metro area.... not $80.00!! They are piggybacking on the hotel chain, and using it to get customers and charge higher prices. The only good thing about this hotel is cheap prices for extended stay college students.

Room Tip: Don't bother, there's nicer hotels anywhere else.

I just got to this place with my family and the first thing I did was turn the top comforter down. its what I always do at every hotel. the comforter here had blood stains on it. BLOOD STAINS! there was hair on the bed. there was a semen stain too. outside was gross. the grass wasn't cut. the door was disgusting. the garbage can smelled like something was dead in there. it was just utterly repulsive. we left not even 5minutes into being there. NEVER EVER EVER GO HERE! EVER!

We stayed there for a school club trip and needed a reasonably priced hotel near the UCF campus that was clean and safe.The "block" of rooms put us all over the hotel. When you have young teens and only a few chaperones, you don't want your kids to be on an outside-accessed corner room far away from the rest of the group. But that was nothing compared to the state of the property and the rooms. The bedspreads had holes and burns, the non-smoking room smelled like smoke, the mattresses were uncomfortable, furnishings had paint splatters, were old and rickety and looked awful. No shampoo or any other toiletries besides cheap soap and threadbare towels. Several of the rooms had roaches, and the tiny lobby was typically unstaffed. No amenities. The location was seedy and not near enough to UCF, .. had lots of shady looking people hanging around and rooms were not interior. Stairwells were dirty. I have plenty of travel experience; I've stayed in 5-star resorts and "iffy" places in foreign countries and others in between - and I would definitely expect more from a hotel in Orlando at the rate of about $80/night!

Room Tip: Don't stay here.

This hotel is what you would see in a horror movies. It's unclean, smells likes urine and and gym lockers. Not to mention the stairway was horrible. There was garbage spilling over and it smelled like vomit. We went instantly to Walmart and bought towels and wash rags. Along with a good smelling candel and clorox disinfecting wipes to make the room smell decent and half way cleaned. We never took off our shoes the whole time there. It was the worst nights night sleep that we have ever had. Rock hard beds and nothing for pillows. Worst hotel we have ever stayed in. And the internet is a 5 dollar charge for password not to mention the 3 dollar charge when you attempt to connect.I don't like you and you ain't right!

I stayed here via Priceline so didn't choose the hotel. I thought the "UCF" part of it would mean it's close to campus and some nightlife. Nope! You're not going to be able to run around outside. Lots of shady characters hang about at night, so be sure the stuff is out of your car or out of sight. The rooms were fine and comfortable and quiet. I got a good night's sleep. They (over)charged $5.00 for WiFi given pretty much everywhere else offers free WiFi, so consider that into your cost. Lower your expectations and you'll be fine, but it may be worth the extra few dollars to stay at any of the dozens of hotels in the area closer to the action. There is a pretty good Greek restaurant across the street, though.

Problem every day we stayed. Started with a messed up reservation, broken shower--not fixed, had to switch rooms if we wanted to take a shower. Got in late on the 4th night and both room keys were deactivated. Had to go to the lobby from the 3rd floor to get new keys. We were willing to overlook the bad experiences, but the last night was the las straw. We should have paid the extra money to stay at a nicer hotel.
