Recent guest reviews

I have stayed at this hotel many times since I travel to Orlando 4 to 6 times a year, and always gave great reviews but it's going downhill. Room was clean but old. Bed was comfortable and sheets were clean but worn and towels were not thick enough to dry me after shower, I had to use 2. I booked non smoking room with fridge and microwave and told I had booked smoke by room and micro and fridge were $11 a night more. I went to dollar store and bought a big bucket and used ice. I was put in back building farthest from lobby and the area was dark and scary. People in other rooms were outside room all night yelling and smoking. Not happy at all and will find another plac to stay next time.

I was in bed about to turn of the lights after a long day at Universal Studios when all of a sudden A HUGE COCKROACH LANDED ON MY FACE!! After freaking out and killing it, I called the front desk and they could care less about what had happened. All I got was Well it's Florida, did you kill it?'' I live in Florida and I know cockroaches are everywhere but for the love of God please hire a pest control company to come at least once a week because this is NOT ok. Next day when I went to checkout I asked the front desk guy to get me a manager but he insisted he could help me out, so I told him what had happened and he just said Well it's Florida, they live in the trees and get in the rooms. There's nothing we can do. We can give you back the $8.30 resort fee we charged you. Oh YES this cheap disgusting motel has a resort fee so beware of that! Overall, I will NOT be returning to this motel ever again.

Location was great but rooms were very old and there was no hot iron for your garments and the state of Florida has a motel hotel tax that was not stated anywhere over all its OK if you don't want to spend much on a room

We stayed at this hotel on a weekend get away. It was a decent place especially for the price. We didn't use the pool or eat breakfast. My kids love McDonald's which is rather close to it.

FOR THE PRICE. WE GOT GREAT ROOM. IN THE STRIP. EVERYTHING CLOSE. HAS A CHARTER FOR THE PARKS. I RECOMMEND IT.

Great Hotel for the price, also great location, you can walk to most places for food,entertainment, retail items etc. The 1st night it seemed like more than 8 to 10 kids played outside our door till about 12pm riding skateboards up & down the walkway in front of the rooms hollering & stomping back & forth but the rest of stay was quiet. The Parking lot really needs repaving.. very Rough. Make sure you bring Sandals, flip flops because the carpets are kinda sticky and leaves a black tint on the bottom of your feet. other than this we enjoyed our stay and plan to come back on our next trip!!

the general experience was much better than I could expect. The shuttle to Disney works fine, the breakfast was simple but is basically what you can find at any other class of hotel, and the Internet was fine. The only con. was the absence of microwave and fridge at the room. Based at the Internet photos I believed the room was equipped with this stuff, but was my fault to not give them a call to check. Overall was a great experience and the hotel is highly recommendable. If you are doing a trip in a budget this is a very god choice.

It was ok. However, there wasn't a microwave or refrigerator in the room (this was important since my husband is a diabetic & needs a fridge to keep his insulin cold) I guess these were considered extras. The continental breakfast only included bagels, juice, and an orange. We were there for 3 days & room service never gave us more coffee, tea, toilet paper, etc....other than what was there when we checked in..I guess if your looking for a basic room it would be considered a good deal.

““Good location, nice pool the lady at front desk, super nice! note that you will be charge extra , resort fee,for 1 week I paid $30 during check in -so that's OK . . Standard Rooms with Coffee maker and nice large heated pool. Breakfast ok. Wifi weak.It would have been nice if the room had a refrigerator This was a good value for the money. Close to Orlando. .Good enough for families wanting somewhere to sleep then spend all day at the theme parks.

This is a decent hotel considering the price. They also offered breakfast even though I had an early flight and couldn't enjoy it. Room was clean. Nothing to complain about. I will definitely stay again.

I booked this hotel because it had complementary breakfast and it was all a lie, so be careful. Also please note that you will be charge extra once you get there supposedly that its an additional charge you have to pay, I ended up paying close to 20.00 more for my stay.

The room was very uncomfortable the the room front door barely close, both beds in the room broken ,you sink down in the middle when you lay down, I personally will never go back there

I work in Orlando a lot and have stayed in several hotels. Usual costing me 80 dollars or more a night. Most still only have console tv's and don't have a fridge or microwave.and the rooms are not that clean. For 40 dollars a night I stayed at the rodeway inn and my room had a flat screen tv a fridge that kept my drinks and food ice cold and a microwave. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. In fact the only complaint I could possibly make was that the 'continental breakfast' was more like we serve bagels. But hey I'm not complaining lol. Probably be the only hotel I ever stay at again in the area

It would have been nice if the throne room had a refrigerator. Otherwise it was peachy

The hotel room was a bit small. The shower and sink were super tiny. The window was fairly big and it made me feel a bit unsafe. It had one of those small wide tvs from back in the day. However, given the cost it was not bad. I just felt cramped.

Hotel met the needs and was very inexpensive and that should have been a clue. The buildings looked old and not kept up. The Parking holes looked like someone had been digging for treasure all over. Dirty walls, carpet and doors that need to be replacing. Looks like they upgraded the key system but left holes all over the doors and patchy painted areas. I had to use a damp towel to wipe crud from the shower head so i can have a clean shower. Now the AC worked very well and quiet room.

This was a good value for the money. Close to Orlando.

This inn is great considering its price. I am very happy about everything.

Standard Rooms with Coffee maker and safe (fridge would have been nice) nice large heated pool. Breakfast ok. 10 minutes to Disney by car

the lady at front desk, super nice! The location is ok- if you are familiar w Orlando- Kissimmee area. I am so it was fine- easy to get to by car- surrounded by food and shopping - JUST USE your GPS I mean, I got a cheap rate for hotel so ONE can not expect THE PLAZA HOTEL! The kids went swimming in pool, they said it was heated ( for me it could be hotter) The breakfast is FREE. For one night they hold $4.00 or 5.00 during check in -so that's OK If you like SEAFOOD , Boston Lobster all you can eat- is almost next door . The hotel has coupons too. I have been eating there for over 10yrs- so it's good. I had a blow dryer. The floor was old, the beds were ok, only few towels, but I'm sure the front desk would give more ( I didn't ask though) They were nice over all! It's looks odd from front, but the hotel rooms all in back! I have no major complaints. Everyone at pool was nice - and mingled w each other I was just there New Year's Day But the blonde lady in from super nice and she's upfront w U -- about everything Oh they had wifi , but it's not always working -
