wow...wow...wow!

what a surprised! I don't even know where to begin. Sigh... Upon arrival, the front desk was polite & helpful. However, getting to the room was a mission. The hallways & walk way are dirty, bird poops all around the pool area even though the pool was out of service. The elevator smells & scary like it wasn't going to get stuck with us. Once I made it to the room, it was surprises after surprises. Broken dresser, dirty door, walls & carpet stains. STAINS everywhere! Very old TV & microwave. Dusty! Dusty! The phone WASN'T even connected just in case if I needed to call the front desk or 911. The bathroom. the light fixture didn't have a cover. the bathroom fan wasn't working. Mildew in the ceiling like there was a water leak somewhere. The shower curtain had some giant yellow stains. Sigh... After seeing the shower curtains, I wanted to go to a different Hotel period. Didn't care about money at this point but my partner convinced me. Needed some ice now, had to walk from one end to the other end of the building to the ice maker. Smh... Nevertheless, at least the bed had clean sheets & the tub was clean too. I'll give them that. No one ever bothered to ask how was your stay when I checked out. Just horrible! I've stayed in CLEANER & BETTER motels than this. Like they said...you get what you paid for.

personal getaway

Its now called the WOW Resorts . Be careful with this hotel. Hotel will place additional fees to your account. They will give you the run around about getting a refund.

Cheap and looking a bit tired

Most annoying thing was the lack of a printer. Couldn't print my flight check-in info. Telling customers to go over the road to the next hotel doesn't cut it (and didn't work). Same thing for all the other suggestions they made (none of them worked). Kudos to the nice guy who was working on the desk during the night. He printed off some stuff for me. I would have been happy to pay for this service... so not sure why the hotel didn't offer it? Pool was not usable due to repairs. The bath had a hole in it. The bath-tub tap leaked (reporting it didn't result in any action) The internet is only in the lobby. Liked the free breakfast... although they seemed to run out of most things if you came late e.g. bread, juice and pastries. Not quite sure how you can run out of bread? ...and why not some fruit instead of pastries and fruit loops? Butter instead of margarine? Tea as well as coffee? It's a fairly minimal choice overall... but choices with a little less sugar would have been nice? A couple of noisy billing arguments in the lobby spoiled the ambience. The lady on the information desk seemed disinclined to point out where things like bus stops were. As a result it took me about 15 minutes to find the stop (it's only a short distance from the hotel but hard to spot as there is only a number with no seat or protection from rain). My room had a window that looked out onto a corridor (a bit pointless?)... but given the price probably expected? It's a well located hotel on the corner of Sandlake and Universal... if you don't mind catching the green line I-Ride buses ($2 or buy an unlimited pass for 7 days for $12) or walking a block and using the red line bus (International)? There are plenty of shops near the hotel... so if you want to eat you probably won't have to go too far. The airport shuttle stops there... as do all the normal buses going to Disneyworld and elsewhere. It's now called WOW... and for some reason the online name still hasn't caught up. NB. Much easier to remember WOW! Overall it was an OK experience and I'd be happy to go back... especially as the pricing was about half that of the hotels further down Universal Drive... and 1/4 or less of those even closer to the convention center. :-)

Cockroaches in room!!

Absolutely the most disgusting hotel ever. We checked in on a Friday night and when we walked into the room it smelled sour and was dirty feeling. I sucked it up because you get what you pay for. On Saturday we went to the theme parks for the day, got back to the hotel room around 1230am and there were cockroaches everywhere and even in my bag!! I freaked out the woman at the front desk didn't seem like she cared and we left the hotel immediately. Most disgusting hotel ever!

Perfect place to lay your head at a great price

This hotel was very good value for money and included a breakfast with the price which was good! The pool area was good. Unfortunately my room was not made up when I returned for my second nights stay but that was fine as there were ample fresh towels. The building and fixtures are a little old and could do with an upgrade

AVOID THIS HOTEL

First off, the lady at the front desk took 30 minutes to help me check in and get my room key. Then I get to my room and there are BUGS crawling under my pillow. I move my sheets to the side and there are HAIRBALLS. This hotel was the nastiest and scariest place I have ever been to. The drunk and inappropriate people standing outside the rooms and in the parking lot were also a con. The breakfast was very bad, the service sucked. I don't recommend this hotel to anyone.

If you want leisure NO!!

Very moldy smell when you walked into the room. The carpet was damp by the sink. The AC was loud and started and stopped like a small engine plane ..
