“Did I stay at a different hotel to the bad reviewers?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2010

Stayed here just for 1 night as passing through Kissimmee. Since returning home I read the bad reviews from other people and can't beleive it was the same hotel I stayed at. This is a budget hotel so I didn't expect the Ritz. I was however pleasantly surprised. As soon as I walked in to the hotel I could smell the polish. The reception area was spotless, fresh and clean.(so different from an Econolodge we had just left, where the smell of curry made your eyes water) I remarked on this to the manager who said that he had taken over recently and had put a lot of hard work into the place and it showed. Our room was clean, functional and comfortable. Our bedding and towels were clean and no, I didn't fall out of the bed as one of the previous contributers seemed to. Admittedly, the balconies are small but we both sat on the 2 chairs provided overlooking the pool. During the evening I did see a security guard patroling, did not see any undesirables hanging round the place, so felt perfectly safe. In the morning staff were out cleaning the pool and grounds. All in all, a very good stay. I would certainly go back.

Stayed here whilst travelling round america for two months. Got a cheap weekly rate and it was good for the money. We had a problem with the a/c and someone was round to look at it within 10 minutes and it was fixed. Staff on the front desk were very helpful when i was looking for a phone card. Its not the ritz's but for the money its ideal. It has a good location with shops and resturants in walking distance and a great English pub up the road. Also close to all the parks and Old Town.

the beds were uncomfortable (my mom went with us and she kept falling off hers), the quilts didn't stay on while we slept and they were obviously cheap. the lock box in our room did not have a key. the power button on the tv wasn't even there. the balcony couldn't fit more than one person, people went out on a belcony just below ours that was bigger (i don't think it was off a room but somewhere you could go) and kept being loud and obnoxious making hard to sleep at all. the showers were hard to figure out and the faucet themselves were loose and you can see where soap was left over from previous guests in the shower. I've been in cheap places, but they need to tear this one down and start over. don't waste your money

we enjoyed the staff. very friendly and helpful. the price was good for us. nothing with bells and whistles but they made us feel welcome and put a smile on my daughter's face everytime we walked in. the pool is nice and big. not too crowded. perfect place if you plan on spending most of your time at the parks.
