Great friends trip

The hotel has an amazing location which is close to everything we planned to go to like see world, universal, and aqutica. I would really like this hotel and the location. I hate that the room is not very clean specially the bathroom. The price is really really cheap

Weekend getaway

Even though the elevator was broken on the 2nd day and we we're staying on the third floor, the price was right for what was expected.

money worth

This hotel is a standard hotel. Next door there is a radisson and double tree. The hotel rooms are big with sufficient space. The rooms were clean and the sheets had no bed bugs! AC was super cold. i would go again

"Not too hot"

This place was old. It was okay for a night I guess. Of the zillions of hotels in the area, this one was not the best.

Got what I paid for

We've been coming to this area for almost a dozen years for swim meets at the YMCA pool behind the hotel. I needed a cheap room without the frills, since this was a very brief, one night stay. At this price, I would have been content for a couple nights stay. I believe this facility was once part of the Radisson next door, and this was my first time booking here since the split. Now that the two hotels have been divided into two distinct properties, I get the feeling that this one would probably be considered the red-headed stepchild of the two. The confusion starts with the parking lot and strange lobby location. Depending on which of the many entrances you use to enter the lot, the makeshift lobby is hard to find since it was around the corner from the (reasonably located) main entrance of the Radisson. Although both hotels try to distinguish their facility by placing several respective banners in front of their own property, the lobby to the Metropolitan Resort, sorely lacks appropriate signage. Although covered by an awning, the check in area is undistinguished, and needs more dedicated parking and SIGNAGE. But now that you're reading this review, problem solved. The front desk agent seemed to have by default, an unpleasant edge. Only after I responded cordially and professionally did she warm up and reciprocate with a better attitude. Housekeeping staff was very pleasant, without fail initiating the appropriate greeting in passing. The facility grounds are a work in progress, with uprooted shrubs lining the paths during our stay. The outdoor stairwells could probably use a pressure washing, since they have the distinct aroma of odor neutralizer, which probably smells better than what they're covering up? The room was clean with plenty of space for two or three; a/c was cold and just loud enough to drown out any outside noise from I Drive; plenty of seating; beds were comfy and pillows and sheets were clean with no allergic reactions to the detergent; tub drained well; two sinks were a bonus; bathroom fan squealed loudly and without fail when turned on, but quieted down after a few seconds. All in all, this hotel is perfectly situated for events at the YMCA aquatic center, and its priced fairly given its basic amenities.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

By car, avoid the I Drive/Sand Lake intersection! Familiarize yourself with alternate (car) routes and avoid I Drive traffic jams, which waste your time and are a real joy kill. Exiting this hotel by crossing I Drive to Universal Blvd gets you to Sand Lk/Kirkman/I4 east real fast, and Sand Lk @ OBT has great eats.

Unbeatable location for the price

Was not a bad hotel for the price. Was not nasty but could have been a little cleaner in the tub area. The beds were a memory foam and slept so well. They had us by the Tennis courts and people kept hitting the window and door with the balls which was annoying. I would recommend it for people that want a desent place on a budget.

Do not order from Pizza Express. They left a flyer in the door and deliver until 4 am but the food was nasty.
