“Good Value in Comparison 2 Econolodge on International Blvd,”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2013

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.

Excellent value for a place to stay on a budget with the family.
All you need with breakfast, fridge in room and a swimming pool for the kids. Close to all attractions and the staff are very helpful with directions and places to visit

Room Tip: Rooms are all the same but a ground floor room for people with difficulties. They always try to acc...

If you go into this looking for a full service hotel, you will be disappointed, but if you are looking for a place to sleep and keep your stuff during the day, its not bad. Not the most comfortable beds in the world, but it has a pool and WiFi. For $25-$50 a day, not bad at all. Location is a straight road to Disney in about 10 minutes.

Be aware of the resort fee of $9 a day that is usually not included in the quoted prices.

Lodging is fine for traveling through but the $29.95 is a gimmick - they add a resort fee which is extravagant ($8++) plus taxes (to be expected)....ends up being fairly pricy for a 2 star in the area.

Breakfast is nothing special but good start for the day. Very small area for breakfast crammed into the lobby - and only the front desk staff to handle everything.

Average 2.5 star facility - might, but probably won't stay there again.

The room it self is okay for one night. Its about a two star.You do have a micorwave and small fridge but no coffee maker. Heres the ketch the room is advertise for 29.95 then there is $10 because its Sat then theres 13% tax ( which heips the enconomy) but the real scam is added extras close to $9.00 this covers internet,breakfast,phone calls,coffee @ office also fridge and microwave in room. There is a name for this "ITS CALLED HIGHWAY ROBBERY" The way around places where you may be robbed is avoid them. Total cost came to around $50 dollars.

Ive stayed here several times and its your average budget motel. If your looking for shower caps, deluxe breakfast and a business center, keep looking. If you just need a place to lay your head, you found the place. It is in a good location, close to shopping, disney, I4 and the outlet mall. The pool is small but I didnt use it. Its outdated but everytime my room has been clean, a/c worked as did the microwave, wifi and minifridge. The outside could use some cleaning and paint but it served its purpose and I will continue to use this hotel when I visit orlando.
