Recent guest reviews

Well first of all, I was there for less than 30 minutes. If you like yelling, drugs outside your door, filthy tubs and floor then this place is for you. Otherwise, stay away! They wouldn’t refund my money even though I was terrified to be there.

Large palmetto bug. Enough said Under construction felt seedy

From the moment we arrived we were not happy with what we saw. We called to have room cleaned as there was dust and debris on the floor, plastic wrapping on the floor next to one of the beds. The room itself needs major updating. Condition of the doors and some of the walls are poor, blemished, paint looks tarnished, in need of fresh coat of paint, door chain is gross looking and dirty, had to handle with a tissue, door hook in bathroom in same condition, actually came off with small amount of pressure. The worse was the bathtub, narrow, very outdated, even though clean, looked tarnished, stained, looked gross. Since we rented 2 rooms we used shower in other room as it was more acceptable. Floor outside of room in hallway needs pressure cleaning and fresh coat of paint. Was not impressed with continental breakfast. Would rather spend a little more for a better experience.

The hotel is near funspot & Congo river. It has nice rooms inside but outside was under construction. The pool is nice just older people at pool trying to sun tan & read books & get mad if a 6yr old girl laughs or splashes. The hot water will burn your skin room 216 cold water did not work couldn't take showers after pool or next morning. Hotel staff friendly & hot breakfast better than most hotels. The rooms are worth $40.00/night & we paid 144.00 for 1 night & there was no special event or occasion going on other rooms already started dropping prices from bike week but we were already booked. Hotel details said no need to pay now pay at hotel, hotel was booked for Saturday @4pm but funds was takin friday morning. This hotel is more for truckers not family outings.

We selected this hotel for our recent florida visit , we once stayed in their niagra falls ny hotel and it was good and cheap to spend a night but the one in Kissimmee is worst , we hardly spent the night and we changed the hotel, room was dirty and smelly, bedsheets were not clean, I would never ever recommend this hotel unless and until you don’t care about cleanliness and u just want to spend a night or nights at cheapest rate, the hotel staff is average, a guy was very rude when we checked in but a lady in the morning was nice.

dirty, bugs,shower didn't work(no presure)floors were dirty,had cockroaches in bathroom and ref. area showerhad no presure would only trickle down. Beds were not changed all 8 days we were there

Average Hotel Staff with a few uncomfortable features that I wondered about.

Breakfast area way too small. No guest restroom. Convenient to Disney World.

The bed was very hard, the floors were sticky and dirty. The breakfast was disappointing as well, there was no fruit and the juice was not real juice. There are waffles but no eggs, no breakfast meats and there is only powder creamer for coffee.

Overall experience is very good. Even though the outside appearance of the room and the corridor is not that great, but inside of the room is clean and the room clean service is also good.

This hotel is ghetto. The only good thing about the hotel was the lady working the front desk. She was good at her job. I heard her dealing with an irate customer who had been charged for a towel. I was cautious using ours. My son spilled some tea so I put a towel over it. They charged me $11 for this towel. At this point we could have stayed at a much nicer place. Also the towel was worth less than a .25 cents and not sure why they couldn't wash out tea. Whatever. Lessen learned. If you spill something just leave it to soak into the carpet.

Very clean and quiet. Friendly staff and management. Convenient to shops and Disney. It's not the Ritz but were you expecting that for the rate? Everything we needed for our vacation. Came back to a clean room for a good night sleep each day. Bathroom could use updating but very useable. Coffee and juice with pastry or cereal in mornings. Pool clean. Laundry facilities available.

Most Horrible Experience staying at this Hotel. - Firstly, the Hotel Staff were so Racist and Cannot speak to me Properly (Basic Professional Level). - Secondly, went to hotel from airport to check-in and Said Hello to Receptionist (Front Desk Lady) found no response and said I had been here to check in for my stay. she took my docsand paid for Room Security Deposit and asked to go to room on the top side (2nd Floor). I don't know the Way and asked her the way found no response and asked again and she said to me go around. She was like Taking to slave at me. I had feeling of cancelling my stay but kept maintain my Professional Attitude. - Thirdly, The Room has a nice look initially and was clean. But, the Water is so Foul Smelling from all the Taps. Went to Dollar Tree next to the Hotel and Bought the Water Bottles for my Uses. - Asked them to change the Room Bed sheets as they were many Stains and black marks on them but it was not changed. - This hotel has no Hygiene Regulations Standards Maintained. I Have Seen many unhygienic places in this Hotel. For Instance, one can notice this Thing at Wash area and Drinking water place. oh god I don't want to see them any more. - This hotel is not at all friendliness to people other than White. I am Sorry to say this but I had Noticed here about Racism. Have many Corns to write but only Positive thing I had was Easy and Quick access to Shops like Dollar Tree, Nike Clearance Store.

Saw that this was a 3 star rated property so made a reservation. Checked in about 10pm on a Sunday night. There were 5 people in the lobby when I was checking in with only one clerk. Yolanda was very pleasant but seriously understaffed. Once checked in, I went to my room and got ready for bed. Noticed that the computer int he room didn't work as the mouse was broken. Went to the office and was told there were no replacements but the maintenance people would handle "in the morning", not good as I was only there for 1 night. Pulled the sheets and blankets out of the drawer to make the sofa bed for my son and there were over 20 cigarette burns in the blanket(IN A NON SMOKING HOTEL...........or so they said on the wall sign). Tried to call the office to ask a question and the phone didn't work so had to call with my cell phone. After we left, my son kept scratching at something on his leg and after a quick look, found he had picked up what looked like a bed bug of some type. In the morning, took a shower and the water pressure and heat was the ONLY thing good about this property. Also found 3 hairs(2 on floor and one on toilet) that didn't belong to my son or I so................... Will NEVER stay in this property again. Very disappointed that Econo Lodge lets their name be associated with this property.

The hotel had a good location, close to plenty of eating locations and not too far from the main parks in central Florida. Like any place in Florida, there was the occasional cockroach but what residence in Florida doesn't? Over all, it was a decent stay but I highly doubt, if I visit again, I'll stay here.

The only upside is it is close to everything and cheap. Other than that, the staff of rude and very unwelcoming. One staff guy is always outside goofing off and messing around, clearly not doing his job. The two times we took a shower, water leaked out of the tub all over the bathroom and into the room. The light in the bathroom hardly worked and the beds weren't very comfortable.

Bathroom wasnt so cleaned.Chips on the floor.Everything else fine .

The beds are comfortable n the pillows are amazing. The staff is very helpful and it rt next to great stores.

It was a very convenient location to Disney attractions, restaurants, gas stations and highways.
