DO NOT STAY HERE

This hotel, which is still a Days Inn, not a Clarion, is honestly disgusting. They are doing a ton of construction, so maybe they are converting into a Clarion, but I didn't stick around long enough to find out. There were stains in the tub and on the floor (no rug). The beds were saggy and old. I was in town for a teachers' conference and tried to save some money by staying here, but even I couldn't tolerate it--my standards for a bed to sleep in are pretty low. Even though it was advertised as having Wifi, it was only available in the lobby, which made working that night impossible for me.

Would never stay

Went to Orlando for Universal Studios Halloween Horror nights. on the website they offered transportation to and from Universal Studios when we got there only to find out that there was only one shuttle in the morning and one shuttle in the evening no transportation for Universal Studios Halloween Horror Nights. The room was musty dirty there was rust on the toilet bowl the beds are hard and squeaky we ended up leaving and not returning we ended up going to another hotel.

Room Improvement

David at the front desk was great but the room itself needs improvement. The paint in the bathroom was peeling so while showering paint was falling. Rust also in areas. Beds needed to be changed out. Over all it was a decent hotel except for that room.

Dirty. AC didn't work

Location was good close to universal. AC didn't cool the room. Called down and they sent someone to check it out. They told me it was better but still nothing changed. I asked for a different room but they wouldn't let me change rooms.

Old old...everything old

Stay here if you really absolutely don't care about quality, but want a cheap place super close to parks, just to lay your head for a night. The TV is super old with basic channels, the paint is chipping off in large amounts on the door walls and the tub even was super slippery because it was very cheap quality. I almost slipped twice so I had to be extra careful! The room was non smoking but it smelled like an old truck stop. Also when I got there, on the initial registration, the daily check in rate was cheaper than what I paid on here....what the???

Awfull

This hotel was disgusting. They close the doors at night and you can only talk to front desk by a whole on the outside My room was so far and they had no snack machine. You had to go to the building next door for a dirty eating area, in which I never purchased any food...just had to pay for my coffee. The pool looked like dirty water. When I first got their at 12 noon I wanted to purchase park tickets, but I was told the person was closing and couldn't.
