I stayed at this motel last night, as my Airbnb reservation fell through, it was late, and I needed a place to sleep. I know that Orlando has hundreds of motels, and some are pretty inexpensive, but there was nothing available within my budget, so I booked this. First of all, when I get there, I find out that the...

During check in, they asked for a $100 cash deposite even though it was not mentioned clearly when booking online. The room has a very a door with a big gap connected to the next room, so you can totally hear everything people say in the next room and hear their alarm clocks. For the free breakfast, they gave out...

Booked and paid for the room in advance but Hotels.com did not collect the required taxes so I was fine shelling that out when I checked in. What I was not ready for was the $100 CASH deposit this hotel required from me at check in that was listed NOWHERE on my confirmation email. The desk clerk said it was...

Make sure you read reviews before booking. I have stayed at a lot of motels and this one by far was the worst. Cold floors and our room stunk my clothes even stunk like the room. My family couldn't wait to leave in the morning and return as late as we could. Continental breakfast was a joke.

This was the worst experience we have ever had at any hotel. We did not get into rooms until 2 hours after checking in. We were given a dirty, under construction room, then an occupied room, naked man occupied, then the original dirty, under construction room which now I suppose is what they call clean now smelling like caulking, plaster,...

They didn’t refund deposit and provide a terrible service. It is the worst hotel I have ever ordered. They charged deposit $153 and never refund to account. Their service is also toooo bad. I called them for half year. They never care about my complain. Please never try this hotel any more.
