Hotel is in a great location right in the middle of all kinds of things to do and restaurants. Hotel is in deep state of disrepair needs major work everywhere on the site. It is cheap and if you are not going to spend much time there it might be adequate.

The Hotel had a free shuttle bus to Universal, Seaworld and Disney. We used this service a couple of times however... More

Smell inside the room was so bad that I couldn't sleep cause I was coughing the whole night and then to top it off the bed and pillows were... More

Arrived in June 2015 on a thunderstorm night. With the hotel, you get what you pay for. Basic rooms, basic food, however the staff and pool are very pleasant and for what our family wanted the location was very very good across from Wet n Wild and Dairy Queen (the nicest ice cream) next door! The first room we were... More

If your family is used to a clean home don't bring them here! As soon as you enter the hallway you will see that it is so dirty. Crumbs everywhere. I don't think they ever vacuum. Stains everywhere and it stinks. The room was a little better but still needs a lot of updating. I can't comment on the breakfast... More
