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...

My boyfriend and I decided to go to Orlando for his birthday. Typically we're not picky people and we do cheap hotels all the time, but this hotel was just not a pleasant place to stay. I stayed at motels WAY better looking and cleaner than this. The building that we had to go in was runned down from inside...

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...

Carpet is disgusting, tiles coming out in bathroom, and no threshold exposing Moldy concrete floor and rusty metal jamb. Blow dryer came out of drywall and hit me in the head. GROSS..... The towels, sheets and shower enclosure were at least clean. No elevator to 2nd floor.

This place is a very good price for a budget. Our room was equipped with 2 double beds which are comfortable, plenty of nice clean towels, a fridge, a microwave, and a safe. The continental breakfast includes Belgian waffles which is a nice plus! There are laundry facilities on site which are very convenient. The pool is very nice, and...

I would spend a little more for a cleaner hotel. No shower curtain. Dirty microwave. No elevator. No safe. Very dirty carpet and bathroom had mold, but no bugs. Breakfast was very basic but sufficient. Staff was NOT very pleasant or helpful (EXCEPT for the day shift, Angela and her co-worker). Also, security guard was friendly and pleasant.

Pros:quick checking (hotels.com prebook): nice, soft, clean beds; great shower pressure, hot water to leisure; clean towels well replenished; great and spacious parking lot with security patrol; best price for December 2016; friendly but non-intrusive staff; basic but well-stocked breakfast area; safe; absolutely conveniently located, e.g. One left turn on Universal Blvd and you're quickly on the (toll free) I-4,...
