1. Night clerk (black man) is a creeper. Stands around outside the main entrance smoking with his 'friends' instead of being at the front desk.
2. 5th floor smells. Don't know if it's the pets or something the people were cooking. Smell was there the whole time I was there (month).
3. Forget about their 'high speed' internet. Dial-up is faster.
4. Kitchen is decent but missing many utensils.
5. Breakfast is limited. Better plan to hit Mickey Ds.
6. Pool is a postage stamp.

6. Biggest complaint: Their irrigation system sprays the parking lot. There is no place to escape the water. Plan for water spots on your car. This is a big deal if you are drving your personal vehicle.

This was a good hotel at a decent price. The front desk staff was very good. My only complaint was that the maid didn't leave enough towels and didn't replenish the coffee or the soap or shampoo.

This is a good distance from many of Orlando's sights, but we enjoyed it here. It was quiet and comfortable.

Great place! The staff was nice! Fast check in and check out! We had an event at UCF and got late to check out. My two year old was exhausted and needed a nap, so I asked for a late check out and they were so nice about it. Housekeeping came by once and when I told them what was happening they said fine and didn't come back! We didn't leave until after 3:00 and the staff was really nice about it. I can't tell you how important a nap is to the mother of a two year old! Thanks to the staff for being so friendly!!

The Hotel was great especially if you are visiting UCF as it is right near the entrance to campus. The room was clean, and the bed was comfortable. The lobby area is currently under renovation which will be finished in a few weeks and once that is finished the Hotel will be a great value, especially for a family visiting the Campus/area.

My family was at the UCF orientation, and we booked at this property. It was clean, convenient, well-priced, just perfect for what we needed. There were 2 bedrooms, kitchen, living room with a fold-out couch, 3 TV's, continental breakfast. Perfect for what we needed.

For anyone looking for more than the standard box of a hotel room, this is a great find - our 2 bedroom suite was like a small apartment. Clean, close to campus, friendly... a great choice. We only stayed one night, but could easily have been comfortable for longer. I was traveling with 3 teenagers to do the UCF campus tour, so having separate rooms - with DOORS - ensured I got much needed sleep!

There was also a small fold-out in the living room with a 3rd TV, and a kitchen complete with fridge, stove, dishes, glasses, etc..

It would be better if toilet and shower were separated by a door, as it is only one person can use bathroom (except sink is separate). Also, a mirror in one of the bedrooms would be nice when you have 4 females getting ready at the same time!

We were looking for a pet friendly hotel and found very few options in the area that were reasonable in rates and met my expectations. But then we found TownePlace which accepts pets. TownePlace rooms were very clean and comfortable. Just the right size - with small kitchen, sitting area and queen size bed, for me, my husband and a medium sized dog. The staff was very welcoming and friendly. They were especially nice to our dog. The location is great - walking distance to restaurants and shopping centers.
