We stayed for just one night and that was enough! Our room smelled awful like mold, there were stains on the carpet, the bathroom was covered in mildew, the AC was loud. We should have asked the manager to change our room but we were so tired and it was just to crash for the night. When checking in, a... More

This hotel is dreadfully awful. Do not stay here. In addition to being awful, the hotel managers are grossly incompetent and they do not care about you or any of the problems in the hotel. If you are smart you will stay away unless you want to go up in smoke. PS they charge you $100 if the maid says... More

We are all for staying at lower-end hotels to simply have a place to crash for the night in Orlando and do the parks during the day. The room itself was fine. My issues were the wifi (could not even load a webpage, definitely no streaming), the tv (all the channels had bad snow and static) and the breakfast. Breakfast... More

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.
