We stayed here a couple of weeks ago. I can honestly say its the worst hotel i have ever stayed in. When we arrived we were given are room keys only to walk into the dirtiest room i have ever seen. The walls were smashed and scratched the bathroom was disgusting the toilet seat was hanging off. the table was damaged and so was the the bed side lamp. We asked to be moved and to be fair the guy moved us straight away to a room that was only a little bit better. We got in touch with Virgin straight away asking to be moved to a better hotel. Unfortunately this took 3 days to do , so we had to stay. The breakfast was a bowl of corn flakes or a bowl of fruit loops some tinned fruit on a sausage patty with some fried egg and potatoes every day . The pool was really nice enjoyed that. If you have booked this hotel i would really think twice about changing it ASAP.

I really had fun everything me and my boyfriend wanted to do was right around the corner nothing was to far from us and I really enjoyed that. However the rooms where okay the bath tub wasn’t as clean as I wanted it has a used soap bar in it and just needed to be more clean . The sink didn’t drain fast enough when I was using it it took a while . The tvs whereby up to date and I couldn’t watch as many movies because it was all in Spanish I think you guys should try to get up to date movies . The phone in the room was also broken and I couldn’t call anyone. And the beds weren’t as comfortable they where kind of hard but it was okay . The front desk was nice they helped us with knowing our rooms and any other questions we needed.

At check-in, there was a line of 6 people and there were 2 people working behind the counter. However, only one of them was helping customers at a time. The man (Alex) stood by doing nothing as the woman struggled to help a Spanish speaker, which slowed down the line significantly. Then, he proceeded to speak in fluent Spanish to the next person in line, while still not helping anyone. Then, they started switching off who was checking in customers. If you went to at "wrong" person (who had just checked someone in), they very rudely refused to help and told you that they weren't doing check-ins. I ended up having to wait over 30 minutes to check-in. The room itself was fairly clean, with a few random hairs around, but at least there weren't any roaches

This is more of a motel type than a hotel, is dingy, dirty and filthy. So do your family and yourself a favor stay elsewhere There’s other hotels in the vicinity that are cleaner and much better. So even if it’s a bargain it’s not worth it

I’ve given this place 3 stars because that’s really what it (the hotel) is aiming for. It’s a cheap place to stay for what will eventually be an expensive holiday (food / drink is not cheap!) so over all so it was perfect for our budget. I found our room to be comfortable, quiet and clean. You can hear some noise outside the room but I learned a long time ago to just take ear plugs everywhere I go now which always helps me. The air con unit is also pretty loud but it almost acted as white noise and didn’t bother us as we slept. You definitely need it on in the Florida heat! There were 2 queen sized beds in our room, they were firm which I fine for me. With plenty of pillows which were comfortable. For what you pay for it, and how long you are in the room it’s perfectly fine for 2 weeks. There is so much excitement to be had with all of the parks which are super conveniently located you hardly expect to be in the room much anyway! My only criticism regarding the room and word of advice for future travellers is that there are no coffee making facilities in the room. I didn’t ask reception but from reading other reviews I didn’t think it was worth the hassle to ask. If you like to have a coffee outside of breakfast hours, I would suggest taking a mini kettle / travel cup and buying the coffee supplies from the store. There is a good sized fridge in the room to store milk. My second issue with the hotel was that for the breakfast (which was very basic as described in other reviews) you had to use polystyrene plates, bowls, cups and plastics cutlery. I’m sure this is to cut costs but it bothered me to see so much single use waste. This wasn’t limited to the hotel though I found that excessive single use plastic was used in a lot of places. Having said that I’m not expecting the hotel to change this, but if this is something that does bother you and you’re trying to be more sustainable I would suggest taking some travel plates / cups / cutlery etc with you. I only took metal straws with me (which were also super useful in the parks) We had an incident with a blocked toilet on one occasion, my partner went to reception to ask for assistance and within 5 minutes someone had come to sort it out. They even fixed something else that they noticed whilst they were there. Great service. Didn’t have much other interaction with the staff but the little we did was friendly and polite. The pool looked nice although we didn’t use it, it seemed to be quite popular later in the day but not so busy, you could always see seats available. Rooms were cleaned sporadically throughout the 2 weeks. Sometimes every day sometimes it was left a couple days. Didn’t bother us, we had what we needed. I would recommend to someone staying on a budget but I would also probably try somewhere else next time and spend a little more. Note: there is a deposit ($100) which is charged on arrival. Not sure if it’s been refunded yet as we only just checked out a couple days ago.

Room Tip: Breakfast seemed to be busiest from 8-9. If you prefer a quieter atmosphere, go around 7:15/7:30.

Orlando on a VERY VERY tight budget! On arrival to the hotel, we weren’t greeted by the friendliest staff members, which was not the best start. Our room was extremely basic (which was fine), however, our telly did not work, the room had a musty smell and the sink was grubby. It was explained that the room would only been cleaned every three days, which we did not mind as the room only costed $50 per night. The breakfast was not the best, very dry turkey bits with fried eggs and plain potato wedges. Also with cereal, toast and muffin options with a selection of drinks. The dinning room tables were not cleaned after each customer left, even though there were members of staff just standing in the dining areas - not doing an awful lot, so had time to wipe some tables down. The whole feel about the hotel was unhygienic. I didn’t expect much with the amount of money we paid, but id expect a level of cleanliness, especially in the times we live in! Only tolerated this hotel as we only there to sleep, only had the breakfast for 2 out of 8 days we were there!

The breakfest is ok. I mean, muffins, turkey mini burgers, eggs, bread, coffee, juice, milk, potatoes all days same breakfest. It actually tastes good, I don't mind about repeat same breakfest all days. The locations is fantastic, there is literally everything you want to eat around, and just 5-10 minutes driving to Universal theme parks! The room we stood was a double room. Two Queen Size beds I guess, very comfortable. The housekeeping service is not every day, though. Excelent cost/benefit Very important: The employees understand english, but they answer in spanish lol

We stayed here as part of Virgin Holidays package for 2 nights. Very dated rooms, looks like Orlando standards have not changed in 20 years, Vegas has got its game together hotel wise, but this place was like going back in time. Yes the room and bed was clean but very basic no coffee machine. The whole place needs modernising. Virgin Holidays need to check these hotels out they are massively overpricing, I checked the nightly rate on Booking.com $35 a night virgin charged us £200 for 2 nights so that is just profiteering ripping people off, TUI is no better. Either get these rooms up to modern 2 star standard or stop using them. Taxi woes We asked the guy on the desk to order us a taxi to Universal city, I had checked earlier in the day on a local taxi website they charge $6.25, the guy on reception called from his own phone spoke in Spanish and said the taxi would be $19. I decline this taxi. When I returned back to the hotel there was an unlicensed taxi picking up 2 women. I know this as one asked if this was the taxi, Si was the answer from the driver, no decals, no taxi plate. I wonder if the guy on reception has a taxi scam running. In another other hotel across the USA reception always has a taxi number in the reception phone and local taxi, decals and plates arrives.

My first look upon arrival, it looked ok! It was like walking through the doors of doom. Reception were rude and unhelpful. Dining room was awful, food was the same everyday and not nice, eating of polystyrene plates and bowls, plastic cutlery. The corridors were filthy, lift was disgusting and quite scary. The room didn't seem to bad to start with, 2 double beds, units were decent. However, the wardrobe was disgusting and filthy. Bathroom was another story. Mould, shower head was rusty, tap was hanging off, dirt and grime all around the toilet. Shower curtain and rail had seen better days. The whole 2 weeks I was there, no room clean. I requested on this throughout and nothing. The only thing they did was empty rubbish and give clean towels. I complained to Virgin, who emailed them and rang them. It made no difference. I wanted to change hotels. I was embarrassed to stay here. I've been to states a few times now and never had this. Unfortunately, the hotel I had originally booked was unavailable. Never again.

I checked the reviews before I checked in (coming from GA) and the value seemed to fit the reviews. It isn't bad, though. Bed is a little firm so if you have back problems, it isn't recommended but definitely a sizeable bed otherwise. Bathroom didn't have a fan to filter out the air and they didn't have a plunger in the bathroom (the toilets clog easily sometimes) but the cleaning ladies had no problem getting me one (some of them didnt speak english). The food was plentiful but not very tasty, theres a crackerbarrel not too far from there so if you want a quality breakfast, go there. For its location, price, and quality of room its pretty fair. Didn't have a problem with any bugs, ac worked well, only downfall about the room was the wifi was garbage (busy area with a lot of people, what do you expect?). My phone service didn't work half the time and I have tmobile. It's location in relevance to the local area is convenient.
