Courtyards are generally a safe bet when we travel as a family, especially when not in a metropolitan area. We were visiting relatives outside of Orlando, near the University of Central Florida and needed 2 adjoining rooms for 1 night. The hotel did accommodate our request, after I pushed them to find adjoining rooms. The 1st 2 they assigned us were across the hall from each other. Rooms are good sized and have free Wi-Fi. However, both rooms smelled of mildew (lots of humidity in FL, I understand, but still - it was off-putting).
Friendly service during check-in. Provided directions to local steakhouse. Bathroom vanity area tiny. Hard to fit toiletries for 3-5 people, and the small coffee maker. No in room mini-fridge, which was disappointing to us as we had some perishable groceries.
Large common area and food service in lobby, but we did not use it, as we met family for breakfast at iHop across the street.
All in all, it was average. I would have given it a 4 - Good rating if the rooms had not smelled so bad.
