Pleasant surprise

I booked this hotel on a last minute basis and was very happy with what I got for the price. The property was very clean, the a/c in the room as very cold and in general everything looked very good. You can't beat the location, close to everything yet not in the middle of it all so traffic is not an issue. I enjoyed a great night's sleep and the hotel in general was nice and quiet. Excellent pool!! For my next trip, this will definitely be one of the hotels I'll consider for my stay.

Odd

You are off balance from the time you start looking for the hotel. A tiny sign along international Drive that you can't see. An entrance drive that takes you to a side door that leads to an empty section of the hotel. I guess it used to be a Crowne Plaza property 3 years ago and was sold and switched to this "Monumental" name. The sign in the parking lot (once you find it) still looks temporary. There is a vinyl banner hung on a wall on the side of the building that says Monumental. Hard to imagine this signage has been in place for 3 years. So, you park in the back and walk around the pool to reach the front?? desk. Agent says there are 95 rooms and they are full. Hmmm we only ever saw about 25 cars in the parking lot max. Including employees. The place was dark and deserted if you ask me. A bar and restaurant that I never saw open. Half full vending machines. One washcloth in our room. One morning, we did not leave the room till 9:30 and came back that evening to find the room had not been cleaned. They said we left the room too late that morning. The sofa sleeper still had sheets from the last guests with trash underneath. Ok, that being said, the room itself was actually pretty good. Spacious, bright and generally clean. Very quiet place in general (no one there?). i will say the location was GREAT. boom, you are at the convention center. Boom you are right next door to SeaWorld. Boom you are right down the street to Disney. All without having to deal with the International Drive traffic. So, they need some signage, refine the housekeeping schedule, redesign and create a real front desk entry, maybe a breakfast of some type and they have a solid contender in the Orlando Theme Park/Convention Center lodging arena. Until then, just be prepared to feel like you are on a bit of a mysterious journey.

Under Construction and no warning

Check in was a breeze once we figured out where to find it! The A/C in our room was inconsistent, the vending machine on our floor was out of order, we had to go to the 4th floor, which is completely under construction. There were nail guns going on a Saturday night. The outside of this building could use a major power washing. 2 pillows for a King Sized bed. Getting online was a complete hassle. The toilet paper holder was missing and a roll was left on the floor for us. Room service breakfast... $40 and most of it was thrown out. There are a lot of hotels competing in the area for business. This one falls short.

Totally A Mess

No signage, couldn't find the place. Was a large property with multiple buildings that got chopped into smaller parcels. Where you enter, you walk FOREVER to get to the Front Desk. I will say the small restruant in the hotel had great food and good service...but that's not what I stay in a hotel for. The beds were AWEFUL. The value would have been there at half the cost.

Convenient and ideal for stop-over whilst on business

Very good, convenient and with helpful staff. Basic essentials there and no frills, but no downside either, albeit slightly off the beaten track.

Nice, clean and comfortable

Very nice - you will need a car, though ! It's 2 -3 miles south of the main tourist area on Int'l Drive, but that gives you a beautifully quiet place, no confusion. Large room, clean, quiet area ! This is the second time I stayed there. I like it ! Considering the inexpensive room rate it is unbeatable. They have a great pool - large pool, large pool area - like a resort pool. I travel to Orlando 4 -5 times per year and I will stay at this hotel !

lacks hotel

Bed sheets were stained. Eco friendly air conditioning means that your room will be warm and uncomfortable when you walk into it. This is especially dsipleasing when you are hot and looking for relief. Room service not available. This hotel seems to be run by first time hotel owners. lacks all the comforts you find in most hotel chains.
