You get what you pay for.

You get what you pay for here. The location was great considering the nearby parks and very central location relative to attractions like Kennedy Space Center, the beach, and various other theme parks. While the price was right, the security level was not. There were multiple car break-ins throughout a four night stay, making us feel very unprotected. The bathrooms were tiny, which is bearable, but when the shower curtain hanger is broken and cannot even keep water off the floor...it is ridiculous. The remote control lacked batteries, and the alarm clock had no nearby outlet available. The front office was nearly impossible to get a hold of via phone, and the frequently advertised free WiFi had serious issues. It was a sub-par hotel that carried with it a sub-par experience. We would stay there again though, as the price was worth the short comings.

good for the price

We stayed four day. We had two double room a total of six people. Rooms next to each other by the pool. We came to do the Universal Parks. The rooms were clean. The second day, I started seeing bugs in my room. I ask, my sister did she see bugs in her room? She said,No! The staff was real friendly. The rooms was clean every day. The pool was clean. But,I don't do bugs!!! Might try to go home with me!!!

BE AWARE OF "RESORT FEES"

Well I arrived @ 1AM the room was powerfully scented with bleach as well as the sink was missing the cold water knob my room was 3015 Days Inn Main-gate. There were little insects about in the sink area, the TV had a remote that did not function properly, and the floor was slippery after housekeeping tidy up. Now to the hidden "RESORT FEE" this is attached at the end of your stay at the cost of 2.25 per day. This is not included in the Cheap Tickets offer the hotel is solely responsible for this fee when you check-out. So to those whom maybe on a budget and traveling please "BE WARNED".

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.

You get what you pay for.

The toilet seat was from a larger comode and did not properly fit. We returned late (midnight) Monday and had to park in the only available space, very close to the dumpster in a No Parking Zone. When I woke at 5 a.m. I looked out and noticed 2 spaces. Conclusion would be that at least 2 "visitors" had left.

Check out as many options, as possible for sights, dining, etc.. on the web site before going so you have a good sense of exactly where and in logical order for your itinery. This will save you travel time and allow you to see all that you want to do.

Not completely Horrible

For the bucks I spent (Super low price) I have stayed at extremely better hotels. The floor carpet felt filthy, everything was broken in the room (shower fosset, air conditioning knobs, ect). The personnel were great cant complain about them although, I did not complain to them. I really do not recommend this hotel to anyone until they renovate it.
