Location and low price is what this hotel is good for. If you're planning on visiting CityWalk/Universal Orlando (about 1 mile away) the hotel is within walking distance and the cab fare is quite cheap if you choose to do so. The hotel rates are also very affordable, their best being from about $44 to $54 wherein many of the other close hotels are around $70-80 and up. The room itself was quite clean and had a fresh scent (I've experienced a few bad smelling rooms of smoke and whatever else).
Being that this is an extended stay hotel, it lacks many amenities and good customer service other hotels have. For example, being that the rooms are equipped with a kitchen, there is no breakfast of any sort. They also don't provide a shuttle to the park, which would be nice even though the park is so close for families and adults who may plan on drinking, an amenity most of the hotels that are within the same distance have. In addition, WiFi for laptops is not free, which is also pretty uncommon, even for cheaper hotels. Although I felt the room was clean, it had a significant amount of noticeable wear on the furniture including the television, lamps, and chairs as well as the kitchen counters. Some renovations or updating should be considered.
Overall, though it has a few downsides, if you're looking for an affordable room to sleep in after a busy day at the park, I recommend this hotel.
