“managment nice, rooms dirty”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2010

we came to stay here because it was a good value but when we took our shoes off within 5 mins our feet were black from the dirt off of the floor. There are cockroaches that we have found climbing up the wall and worse of all my 4 year old son found one in his toys!!! the managment and the maids were nice and lovely... the rooms need a little work. wouldnt recommed for children. even though we saved a few bucks... i would have rather spent the extra little bit of money to get a different place. the location HORRIBLE!!! i have seen alot of "women of the night" just walking around the front of the hotel and even people sitting out side with loud radios drinking alcohol....

It was very dirty, and not a very good side of town for out-of towners -a lot of scary pple hanging out in the corridors, and looked like a lot of drugs action, loud outside, and staff was very inconsiderate, and not helpful, they should charge a heck of a lot less for what you get for staying there..i even walked outside, and someone asked me if i needed anything....or if i was a hooker...they offered me money and everything....not a great hotel to stay at...will never go back again...and recommend people dont go there either.

I have to say that when i stay here back in 2004 it was not a place i would want to stay. But i just needed a place to spend the nite. A friend of mine stayed recently and told me that they remodeled the rooms and it was alot better. So i came over and stay a weekend in April 2009 and i have to say i was impressed most of the rooms of the buildings facing Orange Blossom trail are remodeled and look nice and clean ,the ones toward the back are ok but a remodelation wouldnt be bad. the pool its a lot cleaner and the internet its free.(that wasnt available before). the overall experience was good and manager very friendly and cooperative. Also the security in the hotel has improved with security cameras all over the property.

The stay and price were fine. The furniture desperately needs updating and wireless needs to be added throughout the property. Manager was very co-operative.

ive been here before back in 2004 when it used to be a howard johnson. its now been chanegd to a Sara Inn with a new manger and i have to say it is the one of teh best nights ive had in orlando. its a good price and the water runs well,. all the rooms have been redone from teh new manager and i think everyone should stay here.

its close to the mall, and its near theme parks. the locataion has alot of restaurants in them and you get free breakfast here !

Had reservations for 2 nights, but after 1 night we checked out. Walls had mildew growing behind the bed that I was alergic to, and was up all night sneezing and coughing. Rug was dirty & sticky. Light was not working over sink. Room only had 1 washcloth and 2 bath towels for 2 people for the night. Not even a bar of soap in the room. Checked out early just to get out of there. Staff was very rude, and never offered any kind of apology. I didn't expect the Ritz at this Howard Johnson, but I did expect to at least have a clean room, and soap available.

I also stayed at this hotel in 1994 through Airtours, Dirty pool, not safe to go out in evenings, few odd dodgy people hanging round the outside corridors, even the reception was locked in the evening. No where near to eat, room ok. To far away from theme parks if no car. Airtours would not more us unless we paid $600. yet still sending guests there.
