Nothing was good in this hotel. Absolutely everything in this hotel is disgusting. Roaches in the rooms (mine and the neighboring room), chewing gums stuck in the floor, cigarettes on the ground, filthy elevator, breakfast is not included. Bread included should be mentioned not breakfast. Coffee is socks' juice, yellow powder with water (probably supposed to be orange juice), the rest... More

My wife and I stayed at the Heart of I-Drive for one night for easy access to Orlando Airport. Check-in was anything but easy however as the hotel requires a $100 CASH ONLY Security Deposit which is collected while giving the guest a lengthy 'Dos and Don'ts' regulation tutorial. Luckily we were spared the mandatory room inspection the next morning... More

We stayed here just for 2 nights. And found out they charge a 100 deposit weather you pay cash or card. And if i used my card for deposit it would take 2-3 weeks to get it back thats really uncalled for. So i reluctantly paid cash and was told i would get it back when i check out. Then... More

Dear guest, We do apologize for any inconvenience, The 100$ cash deposit is listed in every web page also in the front desk when you walk in, is a security deposit and is refundable when you do the check out. Check in is 3:00pm, and is listed everywhere as well. That's policies that we need to follow. Our managers can... More

Rooms are like a 2 star. All around the grounds there are cigarette butts everywhere. Not sure, but maybe there are GUEST that may live there...Checking in you... More

The three rooms we tried all had problems. No lights in the bathroom, no hot water. And the carpet was so dirty stepping for it to the tile you could see gray powder rubbing off. Mind you I had to wear sandals the whole time in the room. Even for a cheap motel this is not worth the money. Sleeping... More

Well, what can I say other than it was awful! It is NOT a Travelodge, it was and they're still using the photos from when it was. The reception smelt old and damp, tacky red hearts hanging off of the ceiling. The room was damp and dirty, my son's feet were constantly filthy after walking barefoot around the room. The... More

Rooms: Moldy. We had mold all over the bathroom, on the curtains, walls, and on the font door. When we shut the outside door the gap was so big around the door we could look outside. It reeked of smoke and mold, despite having a non-smoking room. We also faced the main road and could hear the street/amusement park ride... More

For a cheap hotel, this is not worth the money. Cleaning staff would never leave towels or toilet paper, not to mention poor quality of the actual room. Rooms were not clean and were not up kept. Again, cleaning staff would not empty trash and did a poor job. This is located right across from attractions that don't stop until... More
