Reviewed September 22, 2013

There are three Rosen hotels in the general area. This one is the closest to the Universal theme parks entrance. Be careful when taking taxis to the hotel as they often assume you are staying at the Rosen International which is several blocks away. On the subject of taxis, also note that taxis will not drop you at the main entrance to Universal. They will instead only take you the main entry point for all public transport where hundreds, even thousands of people converge early in the morning for bag checking and the 10 minute walk through Universal City walk to the Park entrances. Even though it’s almost next door to the Park entrances it takes 40 minutes in the shuttle bus as the bus also picks up at the other Rosen’s on the way.
The Rosen is a well-run, clean tidy hotel with onsite shop, gift shop, bar, restaurant, and ticket purchase desk. The staff are friendly and helpful although not that knowledgeable about any of the Parks or the logistics attached to getting there or entry. Don’t expect anything other than the ability to purchase tickets. The rooms are spacious and clean. We stayed for a week in August 2013 and visited Disney (20 minute cab ride) and Universal Parks each day during the stay. Breakfast was a help-yourself all-inclusive buffet (except for fruit juices which were extra) and the food was fresh, hot and good value (eggs, sausage, bacon, hash browns, cereals, croissants, etc.) The bar has TVs and multiple pool tables for evening time entertainment and the pool area was safe and clean. There is also a video games room and a workout facility.
We four adults had a great time during our stay and highly recommend the Rosen as a very convenient location for visits to the Orlando Parks. Suggestion – ask for a room away from the elevators and laundry rooms as people come and go throughout the night and it can get noisy. There are multiple restaurants and minor attractions in the general vicinity within easy walking distance and the area seems safe.

Room Tip: Steer clear of rooms next to elevators and laundry rooms

Reviewed September 22, 2013

We stayed for 2 weeks at the start of September,

When we arrived we were greeted and swiftly taken through the booking in process, and very quickly we were on our way to the room.

We were on the 5th floor over looking the pool. The corridor we walked down to get to the room originally made me and my partner think of The Shining, but this was the only similarity.

The rooms were large, clean and tidy. The safe was easy to use and extremely handy (it made a change not to have to pay for the use of the in room safe!!).

The bar was well stocked and always a friendly bar person on hand.

The only let down is the breakfasts, we had 2 free breakfasts included with our booking, we only used the one as the food was not very nice and the coffee even worse.

There is one pool, which was busy but nice to spend a little time around when the days were so hot.

We chose this hotel due to it's location and it did not let us down. It was perfect to go to and from the parks. There is an I Trolley stop outside the hotel.

All staff on site were very friendly and always said hello.

We would use this hotel again.

Let me start by saying that although this is a budget hotel compared to others in the area it is NO WAY budget in its cleanliness and service. I have only stayed in hotels a handful of times and to be fair if i was in Orlando again I would definitely stay here again. The second we arrived we were greeted by Chuck one of the hardest working and nicest people in Orlando, he made us feel so welcome in only a few moments putting us at ease as he took our bags and showed us to our room making sure we were well equipped with vouchers and all the know how to get a good meal at reasonable prices almost anywhere on International Drive (ps a good tip for chuck and nothing is too much trouble for him and to be fair he deserves it). The location of this hotel is excellent with wet and wild literally across the road and Universals parks easily in walking distance, although a cab there or back is only $10 with a tip. It's location also provides easy access to all of Idrive with the cheap and well managed I-trolley bus ($1.50 a ride) making getting to places like Seaworld very cheap and easy. The pool was crowded during all the hours it was open (9am-10pm) but being that it is 94f most of the time this is to be expected. My only regret is that we had to leave a day early because my wife was coming down with a bug but in NO WAY do we believe it had anything to do with the hotel as this was a very clean environment. We look forward to staying again if we ever visit Orlando in the future. Plus if anyone from the hotel is reading this we will be contacting you soon as we genuinely forgot to leave a tip in the housekeeping envelope and bitterly regret it as our particular housekeeper was superb at her job and would very much like to make this right. Thank you to chuck and every member of staff at the Rosen Inn who made our stay so enjoyable, see you in the future.

Good value for money, ideal location on International Drive just across from Wet 'n' Wild. Although the fixtures are a little old-fashioned, there has been a recent lick of paint to try and smarten things up.

There was a coffee maker and a microwave in the room, although no kettle. The was a decent sized TV and just about enough plug sockets in the room. There was an air conditioing unit in the room which was definitely necessary, it was a bit archaic but it worked just fine! There was internet in the room, but as might be expected in a hotel this size, it was a bit variable depending on what time of day you were trying to use it.

The biggest issue was the size of the bed, there were two in the room, but they were quite small.

We just returned from a lovely week in Orlando and this hotel was great. Excellent value for money, extremely comfortable beds, clean and cosy rooms, friendly staff, well situated within walking distance of so many restaurants and places of interest. We honestly had no complaints whatsoever and would definitely return as well as recommend to everyone.

We stayed at the Rosen Inn for 2 weeks in August, the receptionists were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were cleaned everyday and clean towels were also provided. There was also Free parking and Free Wifi available in your room which was a bonus. If we ever had any issues they were sorted within 5 minutes. A fridge and microwave is included in the room and is very handy if you have children. At our arrival Chuck at reception was very helpful as he gave us information on eating places and coupons for the premium outlets which was very useful. There are also free shuttles to Universal, Aquatica and Seaworld. This was great because usually these parks charge 15 dollars for parking. This is by far the best 3 star hotel I have stayed in.

You are treated like a friend.
The managers, Tracy and Miguel, go out of their way to make you feel at home.
Miguel, the night manager, provided his Mercedes-Benz to jump up my car battery. Down to earth.
Rooms are clean and comfortable. The buffet is pricey.
Above all, I am grateful for their caring touch towards my children.

Room Tip: The pool side is attractive, and a step away for swimming.
