Worst hotel, ever.

Rooms were filthy and cheap. The beds were falling apart. The linens were dirty, we didn't even get a bottom sheet. They put 1 sheet on top of the bed (unfitted) and expected it to stay on without tucking it in. The AC on the second floor was broken and the tiles on the ceiling in the hallway were falling down. There is no elevator and it was a maze to get to my room. If there was a fire we would have had to navigate several hundred feet of corridors to the only exit. The staff was horrible. The "free wifi" is only in the lobby (Where some questionable characters are hanging out.) At one point 4 police cars came and arrested someone. Stay anywhere but here.

Great price!

Stayed 6 days, friendly staff, close to black angus, btw best breakfast buffet! Grocery next door. Free shuttles to the parks. Tiki bar has awesome staff as well, great prices for a cold drink after playing all day. Rooms are cozy, old tv but you're not there to watch tv right?

Exactly what we wanted. ..

We go to the Orlando area to do the parks, we need a place to sleep, shower, and have a few drinks while the kids are in the pool. It was cheap and had a little breakfast, for the price it was perfect, I will look it up again next year. So close to all the parks.

Good for the price. The walls are paper thin and you can hear the doors slam shut all night long.

So close to Universal, some people walked to it. We would come back to relax in the middle of the day and then go back to the park.

Stop!! don't stay at this place...

When we got there it seemed ok but my husband wanted to watch the tv and it was a small old tv with no remote!! then TV didn't work so we called front desk and they put us into a different room then we moved and we thought we where going to be ok but threw out the night we found out that things where not as well as they appeared. This room had a tv that was newer but no channels . But we handled that but the worse was when I had a bad headache and my husband couldn't hardly breath we smelt something like mold so by morning we where feeling vary ill. I went to the front desk and reported the problem to them they sent a man down to look at room with us and he pulled the window covers back and there it was mold all over on the celling so we took pitchers of it and the man that found it and they quickly moved us to a different room the next-room had old tv with 12 Chanel's and we were sick from the mold problem the shower was pouring out water none stop what a mess!! So then after them knowing that the room made us sick we had pics..and they would not help us with a full money return even though they know that that put us in a room that made us sick. I would stay away from this place is not safe for you and please don't take any kids here it could harm them badly.. I have no reason to say these things other then to help and warn others...

Good for a few nights

Spent the night here, good base if you just need a place to sleep and shower whilst in Orlando. The free wifi and breakfast is a great addition too.
