“Basic accomodation”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2014

Very basic but clean. Staff friendly. Cheap cut price accomodation so dont expect three stars- or even two! Good lication for wet n wild, basic restaurants and Universal. If youre driving to these attractions though there are much nicer hotels in the vicinity.

The only things that work are the price and location (just opposite to Wet n Wild). I called twice to find out if we can check in earlier as I was reaching a little early and was told both times that I cannot check in before 4 PM. The room was ordinary but my initial reaction, bed sheets could have been better and few more towels. Staying there for 2 nights, I expected the bed's to be made, trash taken out and towels changed but none were done on the 2nd day. The sink was clogged and I asked them to fix it, which wasn't fixed either. I wasn't very happy about it and when I complained at the front desk, they said they were sorry. There is $2.50 resort fee/day (whatever that means!!). Hotel is near to bunch of restaurant and and $4.99 buffet next door(which wasn't that bad). Hotel provides free wi-fi but it doesn't work unless you want to check something after ~1 AM (then it works.how weird). Hotel is also next to Walgreens if you need to pick up water or sunscreen. Final verdict: if you want to stay for cheap, come after all your activities and just sleep.

This is the worst hotel I've ever stayed at. I came back to my room 4:00 PM after being out all morning and room service still hadn't been by. After complaining 4 times throughout the rest of the day and hearing excuse after excuse as to why they hadn't come yet, I decided to check out in the middle of the night and drive home. I couldn't even get them to give me clean towels to take a shower. The customer service was dreadful and the girl at the front simply didn't care that I was unhappy with the service. The only thing this hotel has going for it is the location. The room was absolutely filthy and the bottoms of my socks were black from walking on the carpet. There are so many better options in the area. Use them and skip this hotel.

Room Tip: They are all terrible. Filthy and bug ridden.

first of all i have to say this place is a fab location for the parks,and housekeeping staff are lovely but thats about it im afraid,we first stayed here 6years ago and it was so much cleaner,fresher looking and all round better quality,so we thought we would use this hotel again,god i wish we hadnt,the three of us had to share two towels as the hotel doesnt have enough for everyone-its a 3star-or supposed to be ! ive stayed in travel lodges where theres plenty for everyone !,no towels round the pool,so you have to use your room ones which means using wet towels to dry yourself when you get out of the shower in your room for godsake.no parasols for shade on the tables round the pool,black scum on the blue pool tiles at water level,clumps of hair floating in water,and visable dirt on bottom of pool suggests filter is definitely not up to stratch and possibly a health hazard? supposed to have coffee in your room-you have paid for it after all,but only two sachets for three people to last 24hours !take your own.laundry room is disgraceful,out of 12 washer\dryers only 3 were ever working and they needed a good service,pool bar is never open-but then it wasnt 6years ago,no where to buy a drink or snacks for around the pool in hotel,unless you get dressed and go next door to the restaurant,but your not allowed to take drinks off their premises,and the machines in hotel are always broken,stock up in local supermarket.pillows are truly awful,i could go on but would be here for hours,such a shame it wasnt like it was years ago,you pay alot of money to go to AMERICA its your one big hols,and never in a million years should customers ever have to put up with such a shabby and rundown hotel,never would i return here

Room Tip: floor 3 seems to be quieter.

Location is the only positive thing I can say about this hotel. We checked in, viewed 3 rooms and checked out again! Would not spend one night in this hotel, rooms dirty, safe hanging off wall, and staff had a can,t care less attitude. With so much competition on I Drive, customers have options and we choose not to stay!

Stayed here at beginning of June for 5 nights. Hotel in a great location, 20 min walk away from Universal, across the road from Wet N Wild, Trolley bus stop outside the hotel to take you anywhere on International Drive. The local bus stops outside too, 1 hour drive from Orlando airport is $2,

Room was cleaned everyday although house keeping did have a strange schedule, some days did the bed and some days did the bins. Towels were changed everyday but instead of replacing them they were collected, washed and returned on same day.

No problems with moths or weird smells in our room. Did have ants but this isn't a hygiene thing, it just happens in summer, it happens at home. Beds were really comfy and the shower did just the job. Air con was great, as was having the dehumidifier. Don't understand why people want instructions, they're pretty self explanatory. Also had a massive tv in the room.

Some reception staff were miserable, but the ones that made the effort were great. Can't comment on the shuttle buses as we didn't use them, we thought 7.30am was too early to go to Disney and got a taxi for around $45. We did get the shuttle bus home from Disney which was free and was only 5 mins late. Steak house next door is also very good.

Only problem we had was the wifi didn't really work in our room although the router was outside our door. And we had some noisy neighbours one night, but this wasn't the hotels fault, just the rude people who moved in. Couldn't comment on pool either as we didn't use it but from our room it looked okay.

At the end of the day you're not paying a lot so you're not expecting 5 star luxury. You're in a great location and you've not come on holiday to sit in your room all day. Would definitely stay here again.

The place is big, old but clean. We stayed a night there and it was OK as didn't spend much time in the hotel. The location is very good and you can walk to the sight seeing areas around. The internet was also very good and the staff were ok.
