“Old, but fine reception and great location”
Reviewed December 4, 2013

Got humidity and corrosion problems? Yes, but it is not dirty. Old and room slightly carpet stinky? Yes, but got everything one needs just to sleep well and take a decent bath: cozy beds, enough space, air-conditioning, fridge, iron table, toilleteries, hot water and bathtub.
Visitor Circle, where Continental is located, is like an oasis of calmness amidst the boiling International Dr.
Good parking. Surprises with a nice pool, a tiny game arcade, decent wi-fi and laundry machines in a guest common-use room together with a microwave (have to say, nevertheless, that I found a small cockroach running bellow it when heating food. They should watch this place out not only by cameras, as warned, but cleaning it more than once a day).
The elder latin lady at the reception is very sympathetic and comprehensive, and reception is above level in the U.S. (sometimes the lack of luxury can be replaced by human courtesy). Would stay there again for a short period - perfect for leaving all the day off and for shopping.

Room Tip: Though elevator is somehow slow, I think it is worth to request 2nd, 3rd or 4th floor, not to be on...

This is the 3 rd time I have stayed at this hotel and I still love it for its location and staff - wud definitely stay here again as it is cheap and cheerful - don't listen to the reviews - yes it is basic but what more do u want for the money u pay! Rooms are clean and pool is good and the cafe in the morning does a good coffee! Location is very central if u don't hire a car!

Stayed here for 3 nights 24/10/13 what a dump, and when we booked in we got hit for a resort fee no idea what that was for, 3 dollars per night. This hotel is ok if your gonna stay for no more then two nights. The noise from Highway 4 will get on your nerves, constant noise. The rooms are not very clean, with the money this business has made over the year they should employ professionals to re-decorate. Don't book a taxi through the hotel it cost us $10 to go around the corner to Universal a trip that cost half that in a normal taxi. So should you choose this hotel don't stay for more than a couple of nights. But not the worse hotel we stayed in.

Room Tip: Don't book taxi from hotel look out for resort fees

I decided to try this place despite all the terrible reviews. I wanted to save some money and i regretted it.
The moment you walk in a smell of mold and bleach hits you. The staff is "OK" but only seem to be out to make a quick buck. I asked the receptionist to call me a cab ..instead he called his friend with a car to pick my family up and take us to Disney for $40!
It was VERY DIRTY! The washroom had blood splatters on the wall and urine stains on the floor. The shower was caked in mold and the previous guests hair. It was clear that they didn't clean the rooms thoroughly.
My daughter who was 5 at the time asked me what was wrong with the hotel because it was so "smelly and dirty". I was embarrassed when she went back to Toronto with horror stories of our trip to this place.
The "continental breakfast" consists of toast, milk, dry cereal and orange juice. So don't expect eggs or bacon!

MOST IMPORTANT: The shuttle bus to Disneyworld only leaves 2 times in the morning. So if you feel like sleeping in and going in the afternoon you will have to take a $40 cab. They only offer 2 rides back to the hotel at night. The last bus leaves before 10pm...so you will end up missing the fireworks and some of the parades as you have to chase this bus down.

PLEASE DO NOT GO TO THIS "HOTEL" !

I am not sure how anyone is rating this hotel good. Worst room ever. Would not let my dog sleep in it. Could not even stay one night. Chairs were stained so bad that one would not even sit on them. Found a 4 to 5 foot stain of URINE and BLOOD on the box spring. Safe did not work. Tub was coated in white powder. Lamps had 1/2 inch of dust on them. Wi-Fi only in lobby.
Complained about our room but were told too bad you have the key and you are stuck with it. Ended up calling expedia and they arranged another hotel for us. The continental made us pay for one night. We asked the manager to come and look at the room but he refused. Ended up standing out on the street late at night waiting for a taxi. We did not feel safe.......
Not happy at all. Save yourself the stress this place will cause you...... Really wrecked our holiday.

Room Tip: Look at ALL the trip advisors. Seems like some of these bad hotels are posting good reviews on thems...

This hotel is well located, its very confortable. But they dont pay attention in the service, i was trapped in the elevator pushing the emergency buton and nobody came for help after minutes later the door opened was really scary, the problem its the old building, seems like they dont care about. Also i ordered 3 packages and they only gave me 2, until the last day they said that they told me that they didnt have anything for me. Days later, Amazon gave me the proof of the 3 delivers. I wont came back at all.
