Well today was loooooong and it's not even over. I left Baton Rouge around 3:30 AM CDT and got to the Super 8/Kissimmee/Maingate around 1:30 PM EDT. I feel like it should be around midnight!
We booked this hotel at the beginning of August as a part of Super 8's $8.88 promotion. With taxes and all we're paying $11.10/night. We'll be here two nights and then in a two bedroom at Celebration World resort for a week.
It's really not bad at all. I mean it's no Polynesian but, come on, $11.10 vs $300+/night is nothing to sneeze at. This Super 8 is clean and fairly newly renovated. It even has a flat screen!
The area (Kissimmee, east of Disney)is just okay. The hotel is actually in a huge parking lot that services a Bennigan's and Dennys. I went to WalMart here (UGH! I hate WalMart but Scott had $20 left on a gift card we needed to use.) to pick up perishables and once you pass the Old Town area heading east on 192 the ugly picks up fast. Lots of run down motels that rent by the week and many closed down business although the head shop seemed to be doing well!
Well, back to the August trip report. If y'all even remember it!
