It was nothing like I had expected and no I wouldn't recommend this hotel at all the only thing that was good was the location it wasn't far from a lot of festivities

I didn't like it. The smell, the area. The road for the entrance. It looks to old. It was my first time at the area but now i Know I can't stay at the hotel.

First room A/c blowing, no heat T V would not work Had to change room at 10 pm

Hotel is older and you will see it's age in places such as worn fixtures in the bathroom. The hotel is a bit further from theme parks than many other hotels but it's no more than 10 minutes farther. I did NOT experience any meaningful traffic issues either to or from the parks. Overall the value for the room cost was very good.

Habian cucarachas por todos lados, los pasillos estaban azquerozos,

cheaper, everything such as location, condition are average.

Bed was good. Clean room. Would stay there again. Low price

I had a bad experience because I reserved that place like 2 weeks ago and everything is perfect but when the day comes and I send an email to the people that works over there and I let it know that I’m gonna pay with another card , so they cancelled me my reservation and nobody call to let it me know , the check in starts at 4 until 12 and it was 6 they cancelled me because someone it try to pass my card and it didn’t through of course because I want to pay with another card they try to use my card without my authorization is the four time that happens to me and when I call and explain the whole situación the lady that answe me the phone she was very rude and it said you have to be there at 9 pm or I will cancel the reservation , people they don’t like threat good to the customers , I will never come back to the place for real !! Very bad experiences !!

We chose this hotel as a quick rest stop with small children on the was to Florida from Texas. There were strang characters hanging around the parking lot and even worse when we pulled around back to the parking for our room there were even more people hanging out on the walkways in front of the rooms. If i hadn’t have already paid through Orbits we would have left to venture else where. Very scary experience

Water leaked from fridge all over floor, dirty washcloth left in shower, large open gap to outside under window above air con unit

The road leading to Hotel was in poor condition with pot holes over one foot deep. Had the impression I was driving on a road in a third world country. Overall is was well worth the cost.

When I arrived the elevator had trash in it. The room smelled, the parking lot and facility was outdated and poorly kept with potholes. The bathtub was stained and dirty looking but it was actually just badly worn. The TV looked like a 21 or so inch placed on the wall. The refrigerator, microwave and everything was worn and outdated. For the 3 day stay you saw people in the lot which didn't make you feel safe or that you would want your wife and children around. The police were constantly searching with helicopters and had patrol cars pulling people over in the neighborhood. Often the police were in the lot. It felt like a war zone. I was there for 3 days of training for lawyers at another hotel which was sold out and traveled to the other hotel and back. Often you couldn't even sleep for the loud behavior going on other rooms and outside. This was the cheapest selection I had at the last minute with Orbitz. The car and flight was fine but this hotel was the worst place I had stayed in for 30 years. I had no problems with the staff which tried to be helpful but this place is not even safe or sanitary and is dilapidated. .

Close to shops, and attractions. Spacious and Comfortable.

Place is not clean housekeeping doesn't get there too late and they attract the worst kind of people

Very noisy house keepers didn't clean emptied trash cans and didn't leave any soap or coffee

room was very disappointing. The sheets, bathroom, and water didn't look very clean. no fridge and air conditioning was giving off a musty smell. The TV was an antique. The mattress was uncomfortable. The ice machine near us was totally broken so we had to walk over to the lobby (other building) to get ice. The road to get to the hotel is bumpy and rough on the car and hard to find. The also gave me an unexpected "service" fee for some reason even though I didn't feel serviced at all.

it was ok but will not stay again. dirty rooms, small towels, not clean at all, tried to charge for breakfast after the site said it was included, also made us pay a resort fee for some reason

I had a reservation to a Non Smoking room and they gave me a Smoking one because they didn't have an available room. The room was clean but outside the room, the surroundings were totally dirty and with garbage. It was unpleasant. The hotel was dated. The bed was good at least.

the floor was dirty, the odor was terrible cigarette all the time.

First room had a plugged sink. Asked for a different room. I'll give them that, the staff was great in assisting that and made it happen. Next room the bathroom door literally was hanging on with one hinge, and was held in with drywall screws. The rooms have never ever been updated over however many years since it was new. I'm guessing the 70's. I would choose not to stay there again.
