“Good location, small rooms, some irritants”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2010

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.

It was an affordable hotel with decent rooms, but they have a serious bug problem going on. I left a bag of Halls on our table and when I woke up the next morning it was infested with tiny bugs- really disgusting. I don't even want to know if they were crawling in our bed! The continental breakfast in the morning is good, but make sure keep your room a food-free zone!

We stayed for 4 nights in September 09 and used the hotel only for shower and sleep after long funny hours in the parks.
It is one block from Intnl Drive and all the main attractions. A few minutes driving from great outlets and Universal.
The breakfast is good and you can get as much as you want, staff were helpful.
The only point is about cleanliness of rooms, for sure it is not Ramada´s strenght, but for the price and for the short stay it was ok.
Definitely would stay again.
If you have a locker, lock your valuables into your luggage, I would do it even at Hilton.

The location was fantastic. It had gifts shops all around the area, cheap fast food places, and a Wal-Mart less than 5 minutes away. The hotel was close to many attractions and was 15 minutes away from Disney World. I wouldn't mind staying at this hotel again, just because of the location. The breakfast staff was pretty horrible, but I don't like complaining about the free food given to us.

This facility is run down badly.
1. Room / bed is tiny, even for 4 person. You can ask for a roll-away bed ($10/night extra, but you can't find a place to squeeze it in the room!!
2. Heater, hair dryer, and microwave oven, none of them works!!
3. Staff is lazy! Room service came to my room during the time we went for breakfast and didn't make my beds, and she never came back again.

We got there during Thanksgiving 2009, and it was at 45F at night, the room heater doesn't work because once you turned it on, it gave off strong burning smell right away! The staff at front desk said this is normal since it has not been used FOR YEARS, which means you'll just have to suffer from coldness!!! There is also a big gap between the A/C unit and the wall, so cold air flowed in just like 20mile/hr wind! We have to ask for a blanket to cover the gap.

The hair dryer has the same problem, once it is turned on, you just can't stand the burning smell

The control panel of the microwave is almost detached from the oven and so, it is not in working condition!

With all that being said, don't waste your money in this hotel!!

After reading reviews we were a tad scared. Someone stated there laptop was stolen so we did'nt have housekeeping in our room for our whole stay. we just got our own towels on the 3rd day of our visit housekeeping called to check on us to see if we needed anything, I thought that was very thoughtful. We had a great time at this hotel because it was so close to I-drive!! The room was a tad small but hey we just wanted to sleep and chill out there, and that is just what we did. They have free wifi which was great and free breakfast if you wake up early. If we visit again on a budget, this will definately be our choice again! thanks again!
