Florida visit

Overall it was a good value for the price we paid. Situated in a prime location, being right off International Drive (very close to shops, restaurants, attractions) The staff were friendly and efficient. Only problem was there was no cell phone signal (at least our carrier) in the room and the room phone was not working. If you needed to talk to someone in the room, you had to call the front desk and ask a staffer to physical go knock on the door to get a message through.

not what we expected

We booked a last minute mini vacay around 9:30pm for the same night & check out Monday. I called the hotel around 11 ish to ket them know I was on my way. Wevare only 1hr away. We arrive shortly after 12 am only to find out that we had gotten our reservations cancelled because it was after 10:30 pm. So we did not have a room and payment was already taken from my acct. Luckily the staff finally got us a room 3 hrs later. I was too tired to argue!! Never again! Rooms were ok!!d

One Night Stay

It was not a great experience at all. Slow service, room wasn't ready, broken sinks and showers. I checked in and checked back out. I don't recommend this place at all.

Somewhere to rest your head

Lets start by stating I have stayed in WAY worse hotels than this. Pluses for this place are the fact that they are RIGHT on International Drive and I love being close to everything while in Orlando. Second, I think the price for time of year, location etc was totally perfect. Minuses to me were the fact that the place needs some TLC, beds are a bit lumpy, bathroom leaves bit to be desired as certain things should be updated, some of the other hotel guests were "less than desirable", and clearly housekeeping was a bit lax. My room was a double bed and even though I only needed one bed the other one had soiled pillows and there was a band-aid in the trash that shows it clearly wasn't changed just emptied. Definitely not the worst place Ive stayed but nowhere near the best.

Nice for the price

This hotel was very reasonable in price and for an older hotel it was very clean. It was in walking distance to a lot of great places to eat.
