more like motel 6...this is NO 4 star

This place is a joke. The staff was very friendly and its conveniently attached to the Florida mall but the rooms were aweful. The bed was hard..no comforter..cheap small pillows. The furniture was cheap and wore out. The bathtub was old and tile was old. The wall paper was peeling off the walls. The sink backed up and left a nasty film behind everytime u used it. The toilet was nasty and had melted wax all over the seat. Nothing close to what I would consider even a three star. I stayed at a Sheraton the night before for half the price in jville and it was amazing... I was upcharged at this hotel for no reason "hotel service charge" 11.00 ....on top of the expensive valet and rediculous room price. Needless to say I will never stay at the Florida hotel again. I will stick to brand name hotels that are held to a higher standard than independent hotels. Being a hotel broker for a living...I should have known better.

Good Choice

The hotel was great. However, for a first time visitor there were a few things that can be frustrating. The hotel was attached to the Florida Mall, so finding a parking spot during peak mall hours was a bit of a pain. After a bit of experience getting around mall traffic and parking, it was much better than dealing with the hotels located closer to the attractions. And being attached to a really great mall came in handy for last minute shopping.

Good but not great

This is a big hotel with busloads of young people often staying there. So it can be noisy - is attached to a big shopping mall, which has the obvious plusses and minuses. Rooms and beds are nice and comfortable. Good central/south Orlando location - easy to airport and theme parks. False fire alarm in middle of night was not a good thing. Be warned of an $11/day plus tax fee that is tacked on to your bill - presumably a "resort fee" but I never had time to use the pool. I'll bet you could get more for less $ somewhere else but the room was nice and location is good - have to give them that.
