We choose this hotel because of the close vicinity to Wet and Wild, dining amenities and Universal Studio Florida. If you are a fan of the famous seafood restaurant Red Lobster, it is only 2 stops away from the hotel. It is at I-ride trolley stop 7.
Universal Studio Florida is just 15 minutes walk, and cost less than USD$7 to get to Universal Studio. The shuttle bus is provided but the late departure from hotel and early departure from Universal Studio is a minus point. I would recommend a walk or a cab instead of the Shuttle Bus. Prepare USD$50 if you are to travel to the Airport from this hotel.
With wet and wild just across the road, swimmers can wear just swimming costumes and cross the road straight from the room itself. Wet and wild is a huge water theme park that has lots of water amenities like black hole, h2O disco and brainwash water slides. The price of USD$55 per head is a worth.
For people who are interested in Premier outlet, This hotel is also strategically located right outside the special bus service called I-ride trolley. It is a green bus which cost USD$1.50 per head per trip irregardless of the distance. Ensure you have the exact amount to pay in cash because the drivers do not carry change and credit card service. Children below certain height travel free. Movieland hotel is stationed at number 9 and the Orlando premier outlet is at station 1 up north, The bus operates from 8AM to 10PM at 20 minutes interval.Loaded with cash for dining, travel down south and that stretch of road will not disappoint you for there is TGIF, Applebees, and even chinese buffet. Fancy a good seafood, Red Lobster is a must try up north.
Back to hotel, the room service is good and clean. bathroom amenities may be old, but it brought out the antique quality of the hotel with pictures of old movies even to the days of elvis and Audrey Hepburn along the corridor. There is a microwave and coffee maker and a fridge in the hotel room for complimentary use. Want to eat some local food on budget, Walgreen offers frozen food that can be microwave in the rood for consumption.
Staffs are helpful and knowledgeable. The closest dining Black Angus Steakhouse is just direct next door for easy dining and drinking. For those who hopes for free breakfast, forget it, for the price you paid for, there is none. There is however, buffet breakfast less than USD$10 around the area such as black angus, ponderosa and even KFC. Have I mentioned that Walgreen is just 2 buildings away? If you ran into food problem, medication and food is just available in Walgreen 24/7. The swimming pool at the center court of the hotel is small but with the low turnup (b'cos everyone goes to either theme park or wet and wild) for swimmers, the pool is still neatly maintained and cleaned by the hotel staff.
The hotel room also feature a free Wifi service and it serves us greatly in accessing our messenger and line feature so we can call back home or update pictures to cloud servers back home after an exciting day.
For the economical value for a 3 star hotel this is good for someone who enjoys the theme park and need a place to shower and sleep for next day.
