“Is Not A Good Place To Stay”
Reviewed 7 June 2012

The Hotel name is Goldstar Inn. Is near everything but the MOTEL is dirty. The rooms have fridge and microwave but the rooms are old and dirty. The towels was dirty and have long hairs in it. The bath tub have mold and stains. Doors were damaged and the security lock of the door was screwed a lot of times. The lobby is in nice condition and in the mornings they have coffe. But this motel is too dirty to stay. In the weekends the motel get a little busy of people and you heard people talking and walking til 4 am. I will not stay here any more.

Room Tip: Rooms on the right side have more movement than the left side. Makes you feel more secure.

This hotel was a NIGHTMARE!!! DO NOT STAY HERE!!!.. The room was disgusting dirty, The staff had an attitude when I arrived the room I had booked was not available. They said they were putting in the a better room. The cabinet was broken, carpet and bed appear as if they have not been cleaned..the towels where dirty along with the sheets, There were no safes in the room..no wifi connection that I could fine.. The room smelled and when I called expedia I was told we can try and get your money back. Expedia call the hotel and the person from the front desk call my room at 7:30 am in the morning with an attitude. This is the worse hotel I have ever stay at. no irons in the room. The clean the bathroom and made it look worse with stain.. I could not believe. DO NOT STAY AT THIS HOTEL SAVE YOURSELF

The only thing that lacks is closet. Excellent customer service. Great air conditioner. Very clean. If you are in a budget, this is the place to stay.

I understand this is only like 25 bucks a night, but I at least expected it to be decent. We reserved 3 nights and checked out by the 2nd night. I rated it a 1 but it is definately a ZERO star. Why?

1. Bad smell in room
2. TV didn't work
3. Towels were dirty
4. Bed was dirty (We had to go to walmart and buy a blanket because it was too gross to sleep on)
5. Floors were filty (I had to wear shoes because it was so sticky)
6. Pool was green
7. Walls were dirty
8. The smell of the room made my clothes smell bad
9. Hardly any water came out of the faucets
10. Did not feel safe
11. Worst hotel I have ever heard about or stayed in
12. No hairdryer, phone, alarm clock, iron
13. The description says it has a fridge and a microwave....IT DOES NOT.
14. All of the furniture was ruined and/or chipped

Unless you don't mind all of this, stay here. We transferred to Springhill by Marriott and it was $30 more a night...WELL worth the extra money. The Marriott made us feel like royalty compared to Gold Star. Do NOT stay at Gold Star...it's beyond nasty.

I guess I've just been lucky when it comes to hotel rooms most of the time because everything about this hotel is good. Compared to Hyatt or Marriott it might be decent but it's a good place to stay at night nonetheless.

I got a double bed room, the room was very clean, beds were made, bathroom was clean. I love how spacious the room is compared to a lot of other better names hotel. The towels are clean, the bathroom counter is long, great for women since we have so much stuffs. There's a table and a chair in the room which is perfect if you have business to do. The A/C unit is fine, no loud noises.

There's a microwave and fridge included which is one of the reasons I chose this hotel. Other hotels would have charge a $10 fee a day to have just either the fridge or microwave and $20 for both.
It's a bargain. I got the room for $25 a night, couldn't ask for more. Everything is clean and I will definitely come back to stay.

We'd never tried this motel before, but we decided to give it a try and booked a room online. Of course, we didn't expect a five-star place for $20 per night, but what we had to deal with was ridiculous. #1: Check-in was a long process (about 15-20 min.)--it was about 10:30 PM, and there wasn't a line in front of us. #2: When we got to our room, the lock and/or key cards were malfunctioning. It was cold outside, and it took several minutes to get in. #3: When we finally got the door unlocked, we noticed a bad smell in the room. Guess what? THE TOILET WAS UNFLUSHED AND LOADED WITH BLOODY TOILET TISSUE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! #4:The inside upper lock was half-ripped off the door frame . Hadn't anybody seen that?? We called down to the office, complained, and were given another room. When we got there, we encountered #s 5 through 11: the room had a strong, unpleasant chemical smell, the carpet needed vacuuming, the upholstery was stained and dirty, there was debris in the bathtub, the AC unit was VERY loud (difficult to sleep with that thing on), there were little splashes on the bathroom door that looked like urine, and there wasn't a SINGLE battery in the TV remote. Unbelievable. If our room had simply been CLEAN, it would have been an OK place to stay...the price was great, the location was good, and the exterior was well-kept. But that was our first and LAST time staying there. We don't recommend this motel to anyone until the housekeeping improves. There are many better budget motels in Kissimmee with comparable rates---you don't have to settle for this. Big disappointment.
