Starting with positives.
1. Very good location. Very close to Sea World where we traveled from this hotel.
2. Bed was nice and comfortable. We had a good sleep.
3. Good, elaborate breakfast. Not only did they have the usual coffee-juice-bread-danish-cereals, but also a hot food counter serving sausages, eggs etc.
4. we booked the room through hotwire and got a deal much cheaper than the rack rate. This way, the value for money was good.
now the negatives:
1. Very small room. It practically did not have any space beyond the king size bed.
2. A chair had torn upholstery with the foam coming out.
3. The door of the room was weird. It was very very heavy and had no mechanism to be kept open. We had a difficult time taking all pur luggage (which was a lot) in and out of the room.
One comment about the hotwire reservation. This showed as a 2.5 star hotel when we reserved it. However, this cannot really be called a 2.5 star. In their examples, they mention Holiday Inn Express, Country Inn & Suites etc. as 2.5 star. However, this hotel should be in the sme category as the 2-start hotels mentioned. This was a let-down.
I would recommend this hotel to someone only if they get a good deal for it.
