Great Vacation Stay

Overall a great place to stay! The room, hotel, even the grounds were exeptionally clean. Everyone on the staff was very friendly and helpfull. The buffet breakfast was very good (except for the fake eggs). The water pressure for the shower was the best of any hotel I have stayed at, even better than home. The only minimal complaint would be the A/C unit didn't function 100%, the "fan only" did not work. For those that like white noise at night it was a bit irritating. Overall I would definately reccomend and stay again.

Fun Getaway

I've stayed at this hotel a couple of times over the years. They have made great upgrades to the hotel and the room. The staff is very helpful and friendly. Will definitely be coming back to stay if I'm in Orlando again.

Deferred maintenance dump

Poorly patched walls left unpainted. Toilet leaking onto floor. Mildew (or worse) on tattered showercurtain. Key card said I had been "upgraded" so God help you if you don't get a "special" room like mine! Front desk clerk very concerned and apologetic when I reported toilet & mildew next morning. I will never stay here again

good location for ucf parents

hotel is a little run down as far as looks. The pool area has styrofoam walls crumbling apart and my pillow had stains on it. The staff was helpful and friendly, but I don't think for $100 we would stay there again. It would have to be cheaper for us to want to stay there again. We were close to our child, but there are so many hotels right there, there is a lot to choose from. I would definitely bid lower for this hotel. Also very noisy corner in Orlando!

Below average

I stayed here 4 months ago and was pleased with the value I was getting for what I was paying. The last time I stayed, I cannot say the same. Staff was great and very accomodating. The room itself was very dirty. When I first walked in there was dirt all over the floor and was never vacuumed the entire time I was there. There was hair on the hair dryer. Comfort bed is not comfortable. I don't think I will stay here again.

Nice place

Nice hotel. Nothing extra-special. The beds were the sleep number air mattresses that you can control the firmness. I would stay there again. The pillows were dreadfully small and flat. My sister's room had 4 extra pillows (shams) in addition to 4 bed pillows. We had no shams. The towels were lacking, 1 wash cloth and 2 hand towels for 3 people! Not a show-stopper just ask at the desk. No refrigerator or microwave. The one tiny vending machine was a joke, the tiniest thing I've ever seen. Overall the hotel was very clean and the lobby area was quite nice.
