You get what you pay for,our trip to universal studios was enjoyable,however the motel was not exactly up to my standards of cleanliness and comfort.Personally i do not recommend this place.In my opinion its just an economical way to go.

low budget.. dont aim hi

we chose this hotel because they claimed to be within walking distance to Universal and City walk. That is however not the case. They advertised wifi (was only in the lobby), 25" tv (was 19") and the new renevation was basically just putting in tile. And it seems like they don't mop, only sweep so wet feet make mud. Cheap and acceptable if on a budget but don't expect greatness. Was close to universal though. I called before booking requesting adjoining rooms. They said it would be no problem but when we showed up they had no such thing. we were lucky to get out rooms close to each other. So plan ahead

orlando trip

The hotel was not bad other than it would have been nice to have a microwave and a coffee pot in the room. The shuttle service was all right, except they were vague on which hotel they were dropping off at on the way back. There are three or more locations for this hotel, and they dropped us off at the wrong one on the other side of town. We had to get a bus to take us back to the right one.

we feel very bad into this hotel as we stayed in for 3 days out of which 2 days there was no hot water in the room, nor they provide any drinking water facility into the room. I don;t know how much time they took to fix the promblem but they keep on saying that something going bad with their boiler which they called is responsible for not warming the water for the complete hotel.

Could of been better...you get what pay!

Great location for visiting Universal Studios & Sea World. Rooms are being remolded, but the room we stayed the carpet was so dirty, woul not dare walk barefoot! Disgusting rug. The rest of the room was clean. Made reservation 4 days prior to arrival and Rooms where not ready, so at the front desk they said the rooms will be with lake view! Need to clean Lake...disgusting!!

Dissapointed

Run down next to and abandoned complex. Very spooky. Thought I was in a scene of Cops. Thought they were going to bust through the door any second. Carried my luggage up and down because I was afraid to leave it in the. Parking lot or in the hotel when we weren't there. The room itself was clean and the housekeeper was really nice.

ok

Room was ok...ac didn't work very well and didn't like that a member of the staff would be walking around in the morning checking to see if people were staying or leaving. There's breakfast in the morning in the next building but isn't free was told it was 3.75 showed up and ended up paying more than that
