Now having stayed at the Rodeway Inn just up the road we were unahappy to find that they were redecoration it and that we were moved to this Hotel. As usual you read the reviews both the good and the bad and resolve to wait and see what we get. Well we got there and they were so helpful as we arrived at midnight to check in.
The room was as usual basic with two good sized beds and was complete with fridge and TV with the usual cable TV channels. The beds were clean and tidy and the linen if I am honest was better than we had in the Rodeway. The Bathroom was small but then again we didn't spend much time in the room to require a gold fitted bathroom HA HA HA. The cleaners came everyday and if you leave them a couple of dollars a day they did a great job and even cleaned up our mess. They were so helpful and always had a smile on their face. There is a security guard on both entrance gates and a quick flash of the display card was all they needed to wave you in. There was never any problem with parking your vehicle and I have never felt safer in a hotel.
The Hotel has two great pools complete with free towels and drinks machines within green areas within the centre of the hotel but please visit the Walgreens store for water playthings as they are two waterpistols for $2 in Walgreens and the same in the Hotel shop was $6 so worth a visit. All snacks are available but just pop across Sandlake road and get all you want at Walgreens as it is great prices for almost anything.
The restaurant in the hotels (2 of them) I heard were great and maybe more expensive than you would get off site but the restaurants were clean and fresh and the staff were great so I was told but to be honest we wanted to go out every wvening to try different things so we never ate there,
The location is very useful as you have two exit/entrances. One off Sand Lake road next to the GIANT McDonals and as soon as you leave the car park you are on Sand Lake Road and 10 seconds ti Interstate 4. The other exit takes you onto International Drive and allows you to go up and down with ease as there is a stop sign which helps you to stop the traffic. Across the road and down the road is a variety of restaurants all within walking distance so you never need to take the car if you want a drink.
If you have kids PLEASE and I mean PLEASE do try and get to visit Chuck-E-Cheeses just up the road as I was most surprised as to what the kids could do for a little money. We arrived at the restaurant at 6pm and left at chucking out time 10pm and having only spent $50 and that includes the food and drinks for 4 and all the games the kids could wish to play in the whole place. A kiddie sit on ride that would cost £ 1 in the uk for a go cost only 10p in the place. Every thing is 1 token a go and a token costs approx 10p.
Other places to visit is the Giant McDonalds next door, Untold amounts of restaurants (we loved the Black Angus Steakhouse just up the road and for Breakfast please try the usual favourite Ponderousa or the SIZZLER'S just up the road necxt to the Conga River Rapids Golf and the George and Dragon Pub.
I hope you have a great stay and a great holiday as I am sure to be going back very soon and will be likely booking here from now on.......
