I like apartments better than I expected. They are soundproof and spacious. The design is not my "cup of Thea", but that's not that importnat. The rooms have hard flooring, which always feel more clean to me. Beds are very comfortable. Bathrooms are simple, but efficient. Bathrooms have bath/shower curtains, which I hate. In general rooms are not really luxury, both comfy enough (3 star quality) Swimmingpool is basic as the hotel facilities are. We didn't try breakfast, as we made our own breakfast every day. Cleaning is during COVID times only one a week. Fresh towels you can get at any time. The receptionist informed us that normally they offer a once in a 5 day room cleaning, which you can upgrade to a once in 3 days,

Hotel's Favorite
Couldn't quite believe our suite here, it was a sumptuous size, full of comfort and was more akin to a small apartment, than a hotel room, and with a kitchenette to boot! Such luxury ensured our stay, that started with a friendly and efficient check-in process, indeed the staff whilst low-key were both at all times, and enlivened by great swimming facilities, was very comfortable from start to finish. Our only minor quibble is, that whilst the breakfast was good, tasty and came in bountiful amounts, there wasn't a lot of variety in the foodstuffs offered, which meant after 7 breakfasts they all became a little samey and so-so. Being on International Drive it goes without saying it is centrally positioned, and there is a frequent bus service to the main features at Disney and Universal (and back again) morning, noon and n ight. All in all a fabulous place to stay!

Please keep looking and stay elsewhere. I thought I booked a nice 3.5star room per Priceline but found this to be very opposite. They checked us into a room with black mold on the ceiling of the bedroom with the masterbed. The walls were dirty, the floor was dirty, the bathtub was scratched up and rusty. As soon as we entered the room it was warm and very musty smelling. I have bad Asthma and started to have trouble breathing. I looked around and was disgusted by what I found. I called the front desk and were were moved to a much cleaner room. The customer service was great, she was so kind. The new room ended up have a broken handle on one of the toilets, one of the bathroom sinks would not drain and all though the thermostat adjusted to 79 the room was still very cold and stayed at 66. I also was not able to connect to the hotels Wifi and had very bad cell service while inside the room. This is not a 3.5 star not even close. Keep looking. There are similar priced much better options in the area.

Convenient location and good accommodation. A tv in each bedroom and in the living room was nice. Could have been cleaner. The kitchen is functional but note that there is no oven just a two burner cooktop and a microwave and a toaster.
