First time staying here and I honestly did not expect such a good experience. When we walked in a group of highschoolers was just checking in, but instead of letting us wait with the luggage the manager assisted us immediately, first gold star. Though the fixtures might show aged, but overall the room is very clean and spacious with ample TV channels to select, second gold star. The location is perfect, driving to most parks is only 20 min max, and many restaurants (and even a movie theatre and a 24 hours Walgreen) are within walking distance, third gold star. The facilities are adequate - They have ample parking spaces, many lifts to minimise wait time, free internet with more than reasonable transfer rate, a computer with a workable laser printer and, very important, with papers in it, and most importantly a clean and tidy laundry room. I know they have a pool and I passed by a gym, but I never been there so no comment. Fourth gold star. The fifth gold star goes to the breakfast. I frankly do not ever fancy breakfast at the hotels, thinking that they are lame with only a few cold muffins and stale coffee. But at the 4th day when we are out of choices for breakfast and was in hurry we went to try the breakfast there and I must say it was beyond my expectation. They had hot waffles and lots of bakery, and even though I must say they could not compare to breakfast at IHOP it is free, and the staff always wear a smile and greet us. What moved me most is the manager would come to the breakfast area every day, go round robin at every table to ask whether the breakfast or the stay is good. We really appreciate that! So actually the first and the fifth gold stars goes to the staffs here. All staffs that we met are very helpful. Besides the manager, we had a couple of interactions with another younger gentleman at the front desk and he was also very helpful and pleasant. When we check out the manager kindly ask us to rate the hotel here, and I make it a "must do" when I am back. The only minor point that stopped me ranking this hotel to 5 stars is the loo. It emit a stench starting from the midst of the night. Once the room was cleaned the stench would go away. Guess it must have been from the sewage. Fix that, would give 5 stars. In any case, would definitely stay here again and would definitely recommend this to all of my friends if they go to Orlando. Thank you for giving us such a joyful experience staying here!
