“Basic, close to Knotts and Disney”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013 via mobile

Basic hotel, nothing fancy, stayed here for 4 days with family and kids

2 miles from Knotts and 10 min from Disney

It was clean, no stains, odor comming from the cleaning liquids was not nice since they put too much, no complains overall, if you are planning to just stay for the night and be at the parks all day then is ok.

Breakfast is free, really basic too, bread, juice, coffee and cereal.

We had a great time at this hotel on our trip. True - the rooms and furnishings were older but we got a great deal to stay here. The room was clean and the edges of the room vacuumed, which compared to the other HOJO we stayed at on this trip, a distinct improvement. Our room was huge, with a fridge, microwave, King and double bed. Great for a family trip with the kids. And the front desk staff was great. Very knowledgable about everything in the area and willing to look up information to make sure you had a great trip. The manager was present the whole time we were there and working with his staff to clean carpets, repair things in the hotel and handle problems. There is even a bbq you can use - they turn it on for you and have grill pans, utensils etc. The kids loved the waffle makers in the breakfast area and I appreciated that they had staff constantly checking throughout breakfast to make sure things were cleaned up and stocked. We would stay here again.

The staff was very nice but they are limited on what they can do based on the condition of the hotel. This hotel was clean but is very old. It was once a Travelodge but has since changed to a Howard Johnson. Our keys only worked for a day at a time. We had to go get them reset every day. Pillow were awful we went to the Target down the street and bought new ones. The sheet were thread bare and didn't fit the beds. I woke up sleeping on the mattress pad. There were large bumps in the floor under the carpet. Had to run the water for over 3 minutes before it became hot. The hot tub is not heated. The continental breakfast consists of bread, waffles, cereal, cut up fruit, coffee, milk and punch (not juice). If you get continental breakfast they ask you eat in the breakfast area which was always very crowded and the tables only accommodate 2 people. We found our own breakfasts and ate in the peace of our room. The smoking areas are by the stairs so to get to the second floor you have to walk by the smoking area, where people were usually smoking. If you need a place to lay your head and don't care about any amenities then stay here, otherwise find somewhere else.

It was a nice stay but they need to do something about the annoying insects that come into the bathroom via the vent and increase the water pressure and temperature just a little.
