Fun

This was a fun stop. It felt like a great old Florida hotel that had aged a bit but still had some oomph. Location and price were the best features, perfect for the budget traveler. There was a car rental right on site and plenty of public transportation options just outside the gate.

Fantastic Holiday in Orlando

Stayed here on the 7th February for 10 nights and we had a fantastic stay. We didn't use much of the hotel facilities as we were always out visiting the theme parks and Florida's attractions. The room was good, two nice beds with clean bedding and lots of room. The staff were very friendly and helped with any queries. The woman on the travel desk was very helpful and knowledgeable of the area and got us some good priced tickets to Kennedy Space Centre. If you fancy walking instead of driving on the chaotic roads your only a 20 minute walk from Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure. Plenty of shops in the area and we visited Ihop for breakfast nearly everyday it's that good. Book this hotel if your just going to the parks, its ideal and worth the money.

Not worth the money

Upon arrival we were told at check in that we didn't have a room, which we booked 8 days in advance and had conformation information in hand. For a 14 story hotel they only had one working elevator for the whole hotel, which we had to take the stairs more then once...with our luggage while staying on the 10th floor.The room smelled musty, the refrigerator didn't work. Was a very disappointing stay for the money that was spent for the room, the pictures were very misleading.

Very disappointed

I was very disappointed with this hotel. I made reservations more than a month before my trip. I made reservations for 7 people in 3 rooms. We were located in floor 12, and there was only one elevator working. The hotel has 3 elevators and only one of them was working!!! People started to use the stairs. My family and I had to use the stairs more than once!! My family and I were very upset with this. Of course, we had problems carrying our luggages all the way down through the stairs. There were many people in the hotel and of course many people waiting for the only elevator that was working. When I left the hotel, I told them about this, and they told me that I could have called them to help us with the luggage, but even if they had helped us with the luggage we still had to go down from the 12th floor, ourselves!!!! On the other hand, my sister used the bathroom in the first floor (when we were leaving) and it was dirty. If my reservation was made in advance, I think they could let us know about the elevator problem by email, or let us know about this when we checked in!!!

Gret Family trip

Between Disney and Universal With plenty of things to do just across the street. The only problem was the elevators. Just 1 of 3 worked and you had to wait for it all the time. The staff also used the elevator. Not that i am above them but they tied it up.
