Reviewed September 26, 2010

Just returned from 2 weeks here. Everything is fine. Rooms , ok need a lick of paint etc but everything clean and as expected. This is not a 5 star hotel but is 3.5. You get what you pay for and its in a great location for everything.Staff very helpful and polite. Dont go to Lobster feast across the raod... its a rip off $35 for all you can eat each..its a joke. Ponderosa close by ..good for breakfast. On the same side of the road as the hotel (turn right and walk 200m) is a sports bar sells buffalo wings etc good value, nice staff, nice food . $30 to $ 40 dollars for two
people with a couple of beers each..including what you tip ..its good.
We had a room near the pool area (dont know about the tower), ours was fine. Good base for parks near to universal/wet and wild. Disney a bit further but easy to find - opposite end of international drive. Discovery cove is exceptional!! Great holiday, great weather, great people, hotel did not let Florida down.

We have just returned from our third trip to orlando. Second time at this hotel. Yes rooms could do with an update and some smell a little damp, we had 2 rooms as there were six of us. The air conditioning unit kept dripping in one room which I think was cause of damp smell but the other was fine. Cleaning staff worked hard and bathroom was always spotless and bed clean and regular fresh sheets. Since we only used the rooms to sleep in that was all that mattered. We asked for adjoining rooms which we had had previously but were originally given rooms on different floors. We then asked for rooms in the tower which were close to each other. Rooms in the tower very big and little noise from roads. The only gripe about hotel really was hot tub not cleaned. I like to relax in it at night after day in parks. First time I did this when I stepped out my white swimsuit was black and green on the back, and later I could see the dirty marks on the tiles. Although our paperwork said we would have to pay $2 per person each way for buses to the parks, reception informed us that as we had booked through Thomas Cook it would be free. Big saving for us!! We dont bother hiring car as everything we visit can be accessed by bus and find it less stressful. Visit Ponderosa/Sizzler for Breakfast or dinner, $3.99 plus tax for breakfast buffett and $9.99 for dinner. So much choice, soups, salads, tacos, different potatoes, rice, pastas etc then deserts, fresh fruits and ice cream. But lots of empty restaurants and motels on I drive, signs of the recession I suppose. We also spent a week at a disney hotel which of course was more expensive, but this hotel had much bigger rooms, bigger fridge and a microwave. I think this hotel good value for money.

We took the kids here one weekend just to have a short family trip away from home. We loved it! The pools, slides, entertainment (i.e. shows w/ kids being slimed) couldn't have been better. The rooms were dressed up with Nick characters but we did We expected a little more. The service was good but the hotel could use a little updating. Overall, we had a blast and that was our main reason for the trip....so we will be back! Hope to get the same great rate through Fly.com.

I have stayed at this hotel numerous times over the years and based on my recent stay (first time under new ownership) I won't go back.
