Only paid $30 a night so I'm not going to give them a bad review because I feel as though I got what I paid for. We had some trouble with our first room (very dirty upon arrival) and the staff was very accommodating and put us in a bigger and nicer room for the rest of our 5 day... More

Upon arrival you can see the sign. It looks like a towel hanging over the old Ramada Inn sign. This should be your first hint this is going to be a great vacation! :D As you walk in you can almost instantly smell the chlorine from the indoor pool. Who doesn't love that smell? Surely they aren't using too much... More

The rooms may not be 5 star but the hotel is kept very clean and the owners are some of the nicest people that has been my pleasure to meet and do business with. They have a small fitness room, a nice pool and even a banquet hall. They are so friendly and it is close to everything.

We stayed 4 nights here last week as we wanted a base closer to Disney and Universal. The lobby is smart and yes you can smell the pool, but it's literally yards from the check in desk. I didn't find the smell overpowering in all honesty, and it wasn't steamy or anything. Check in was easy, though we did ask... More
