Thanksgiving Stay

We stayed at this hotel over the Thanksgiving holiday. The location was great - easy access from I-4, easy to get to Universal Studios, but without all the noise and congestion of International Drive. Room was clean and comfy. The free continental breakfast was fair.

Room needed a good cleaning

First room we were given had defective a.c. unit were given another room which was much better. Room was extremely dusty and smelled musty without th a.c. on high. The bureaus and night table were covered with dust even after having staff clean the room. WiFi was terrible, could not stay connected. Breakfast was okay, need additional toasters and waffle makers, rude guests were more of an issue. Shuttle to Universal was okay, but there should be a return to the hotel at lunch time. There is a return shuttle too late in the afternoon. Sorry, would not stay there in the future A lounge would be a welcome addition for the adults.

Easy Location

We used the hotel as a base for a 2 day trip to Universal. The Staff was helpful. The room was clean. The beds were comfortable. Most importantly, it was about a mile from Universal.

Outstanding value! An extremely pleasant surprise!!

This hotel is an amazing value. Very nice inside, appears recently updated with granite countertops, etc. Very helpful and friendly staff, responded promptly when we arrived back from a hot day at a local amusement park to find our A/C had been out all day. It was quickly fixed. Other than that, our stay was perfect. This place even gives you a pretty good, hot breakfast as part of the already low rate we paid. We didn't use the pool, so I can't comment on that. Room was very clean, with comfy pillows and beds. Beautiful lobby-even the hallways and elevators were climate controlled, unlike some places we've stayed before. This is a must-stay place for families looking for affordable accomodations in Orlando!!! A++

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

If you are going to Universal Studios, be sure to get the express passes, which you can purchase from a kiosk in the hotel lobby! They are expensive but will save you a TON of time, as you won't have to wait in the long lines at the rides and attractions! Take extra clothes and waterproof shoes along to the park if you plan to go on any of the great water rides.
