Fun family trip

Well the first room we were assigned to the air was broken and it was really hot, so they gave us a new room on the same floor and that worked for us! The pool was Great we really enjoyed it and the free breakfast was good they had waffles, toast, and juice and cereal! But overall was pretty good! Also, the best part of this hotel is the price and location it's right on international drive where all the great shops are located at also near a lot of theme parks and the outlet!!!

Universal walking distance

This place is great if you want to walk to Universal. However I've stayed twice and the bathrooms are awful-rust in the tubs, no ventilation for showers, moldy shower head yuck!. The frige is big and cold, however the microwave might give you cancer- if you can get it to work. Also the "free wifi" is in the LOBY ONLY. 5$ if you want to access it in the room.

Great location to Universal and I-Drive fun.

Everything was ok. I do think security is compromised as some perimeter doors and gates security pads do not work at all yet they have room key access pads for entry

noises and clean

Noises in every morning early. The customers using the emergency door to exit. The stairs are not clean and a lot of noises from ice machines, vendors, child playing in the hall..... And they couldn't fix my shower either.

Doble Charge!!!

When i arrived to Cancún i received an alert from my credit card bank for a charge of $217.00 USD from The Metropolitan Express the hotel where we stayed in our past week trip to Orlando, but according to my reservation the hotel was already paid, can you helpe me to avoid that charge? Because in the moment that i received the alert call to my bank and they said that i have to fix it with you and in that way youre gonna talk to the hotel to tell them that the hotel was already pre-paid and they can´t charge me again that cost. I hope you can fix it soon please. We stayed there in room 2107 from monday 11 to sunday 17 of August, we didn´t any consume there in the hotel or anything to be charged.
