I booked 2 nights in this hotel through reserve Orlando, I paid it in advance and when I showed up they told me I needed to pay for the 2 rooms I booked. After double checking they said it was a mistake, that they've found my payment and that I just needed to pay $20 for the taxes so I...

Good. Nice. Good location. Cleaning the bathroom is not good specially the shower hub. Also the linen are not clean as they don't change them. Price is good. Has breakfast. You can say you get what you paid for. Staff are helpful. Many restaurants nearby.

I'm giving this hotel an average rating for pretty much one reason only- it's proximity to Universal Studios. If not for that, I would rate it poor. The hotel is a little less than a mile from Universal Studios. We walked to the park every day (we took a cab back - $6.60). The walk was easy and actually quite...

4 night stay-Walked into lobby immediately met by funky smell. Furniture in lobby is well worn and needs to be replaced. Front desk clerk was capable and provided map to this labyrinth of rooms. WOW, this place is a maze of dilapidated carpeting and interior decorating. They need to add color directional stripes airlines or prisons use for directions on...

Terrible hotel, had to change rooms 3 times the night we arrived. First room floor was wet and smelled, second room was filthy, sheets were dirty on the bed also the window wouldn't close or lock and we were on the ground floor. The third room was ok apart from the disgusting smell. Staff were not very friendly apart from...

I wish I could leave the rating section empty because this Hotel deserves a big fat 0. Absolutely horrific stay. Checking in the staff were decent but unimpressive. But that wad the least of my worries as I didn't feel safe at all. The doors to go to into the building never seemed to work. We finally found one that...

I wish I could rate this hotel a 0 star. Every single thing about this hotel/the service was terrible. For starters, we called and called for over an hour to get some information on the free "shuttle" service they advertise only to be put on hold for 19 minutes. Hung up called back and they answered saying "we're busy" and...
