We chose this hotel due to the reviews & that they had a shuttle. At check in time I asked about the shuttle but was informed it was not available for 2 days, had to give the driver days off. Really? Only 1 driver? After checking in we went out for a while & came back to rest & watch... More

I really enjoyed my stay at this Quality Inn! My friend and I stayed here for the Blink-182 concert. The Midflorida Credit Union is only about 8 minutes away when taking I-4. Most important to me is a clean facility and the Quality Inn was just that. The rooms and bathroom were incredibly well-kept. It has a nice lobby, with... More

The Good The premises were neat and clean. The linens were satisfactory. Hot breakfast options were good as per the franchise policy. and the Bad We found the room space to be cramped and the double bed size too narrow for an average size adult and even a kid to share.

There is a long walk from the parking area to the room due to the layout of the property. If you have several items to carry you will need a rolling cart. The room was clean... More

Decided to stay here after much research about hotels in the area and cruise ship parking. Rate for the night was $80 plus parking for 5 nights. $119 total plus tax! Armed security 24 hours a day! FREE shuttle ride to and from port! Excellent experience!
