“Okay for the price, but with some issues”
Reviewed February 29, 2012

We stayed at this hotel because we were going to the 2012 Daytona 500. It was only 45-60min from the track and the price was right, plus for a few days, an extended stay hotel was perfect. So we thought.

The bad things:

*The carpet was not clean and probably did not have a good steam clean in ages. I was constantly washing my feet.
*The kitchen cabinet listed a lengthy list of dishes, kitchenware, etc, but we only had 2 large plates, 2 small plates, 2 each of forks, spoons, regular knives and steak knives, 1 cutting board, 1 frying pan. There weren't even any bowls or a roll of paper towels. I had to use one of the complimentary bottles of shampoo to wash the dishes and use our bathroom towels to dry them.
*The refrigerator kept things cold, but the freezer section never really froze anything.
*The room had a funky odor that went away after we were in it for a while. It kinda of smelled like wet dog (ick!).
*There were cigarette burns in the comforters.
*Pretty sure I saw a flea or two (possibly from the "wet dog"?).

The good things:

*The price was right. We couldn't beat it, especially on a last minute, restricted budget.
*The ladies at the front desk were very helpful. After the Daytona 500 was rained out on Sunday, they helped up extend our stay by an extra night without any hassles (same rate, too).
*The hotel itself is in the heart of everything in the Casselberry/Winter Garden/Altamonte area. Plenty of restaurants, stores and things to do.

I probably wouldn't stay here again for anything more than an overnight. If you're planning on more than two or three days, find another extended stay hotel. The few extra dollars will probably be worth it.

Room smells like smoke, even though it's a non-smoking room. You can hear people on all sides, even downstairs every time they talk or clear their throats, which makes it really hard to sleep when they are fighting like they were next door. Sheets were full of cigarette burn holes. On the positive side, the internet works well, the staff in the office is very friendly. The problems seem to stem from the fact that this is a very cheap hotel, and it seems to attract a lot of homeless families, many of them with issues. The police arrived about 9 pm to "referee" a family fight with screaming and throwing things off the balcony. Not a place I will ever go back.

Room Tip: Find another hotel, even if it means paying more.

The only reason I didn't give this a terrible rating is because the front desk people were so nice. I stayed here a year ago and was very happy. What a difference a year makes. They have several families with children LIVING at the hotel. They never left. The kids played in the parking lot all day and night -- screaming, running around until 10 p.m. and then started up again in the morning. They also enjoyed running the walkways past my room shooting off toy guns. The adults weren't much better. There were several shouting matches with extremely foul language thrown around.

I work on my computer from my hotel room, but I couldn't get much work done, and I couldn't get much sleep. I will NEVER stay at this hotel again.

There were no accessible rooms available but lucky the room we got had a large enough bathroom that a wheelchair did fit in. Although you couldn't shut the door for privacy. There were three of us in a two double bed room. The beds were not very comfortable. There were only towels for two people and they wouldn't give us any more. Also the kitchenette only had utensils and plates etc for two people. But the worst was the floor> YucK!!! You walk across it once and your socks or feet were black. They only clean these rooms once a week. I'd say the floors haven't been cleaned in years. The staff was very plesant but unable to provide the amenities . Don't know if management made those rules or corporate office made those rules.

Room Tip: Was a very busy property. So all the rooms had noise.

No roaches, mostly clean, well lit parking right outside your room. For the price this place cannot be beat. Good wireless. Just right.

Pros: $, amenities when working, & Eva at front desk..
Cons: small rooms, cleanliness, some wear and tear, bugs, & intermittent wi-fi.

Time for a more current update. Rated 1 of 2 hotels if you must stay in Casselberry. Must be short cleaning help. Found sheets and towels to be clean but overall, room cleanliness wasn't adequate. It's a pet friendly motel so that must explain whatever was biting us during our fortunately short stay. Since wi-fi isn't consistent, found it frustrating. There are some things we found in need of repair or upgrade. Suppose the $ is the compensation. Recommend to pay more elsewhere nearby for the comfort.
