We stayed at both of these Econolodges and found Maingate to be far superior to the one on International Drive. The rooms are much bigger. Dollar Tree, Nike outlet stores within walking distance. Pool and laundry but no soap to buy (bought from D. Tree). As stated in other reviews be aware of the $9 per night resort fee. Breakfast area is small and crowded but they have outdoor seating to accommodate. Cold cereal, toast, mini donuts, waffles,coffee, and delicious mango juice. They only provide 6oz cups. Save your table,get your coffee juice and then wait in line for making the waffle. These are older hotels and prices very reasonable.Hotel on Int drive provides mini muffins only. Maingate offers other amenities for purchase such as v8 juice $1 and other snacks. Staff is awesome.Had problem with volume on tv and they sent someone right up. Had difficulty getting onto the Internet and again sent someone right up. Planned to go back to Orlando but stayed here 5 days. Very pleasant experience. Will definitely return. Very reasonable rate through the week $25 plus $9 resort fee which all the hotels charge. So much is nearby. Even found a Salvation Army thrift store to peruse. Old Town is not far and very interesting shops and drive. Love Econolodge for making things more affordable as without them this vacation would not have been possible. If you are here on vacation Gatorland is a must see. Grand kids liked Gatorland better than Disney. Refreshing to see such a family oriented attraction who obviously tries to keep prices low. Impressed that they have keep the values of the original owner.
