“Could be better, could be worse”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 November 2012

Excellent location, beautiful pool, however it is getting some new decking and the pool bar is shut down at the moment. AC worked very well. The was a dehumidifier in the room, that was a first for me at a hotel, but without some type of central air I guess its necessary for the humidity. Friendly front desk staff, room staff were by at least twice a day to bring fresh towels or empty garbage cans. Wireless internet worked perfectly in our room, we were on the second floor overlooking the pool area. Rooms ok, did have a 40 inch lcd tv, fridge, microwave. The attached restaurant Black Angus seemed to be always busy in the evening, we ate there once and it was good, the bar area too was nice. Our bartender Emily was very friendly. Beds are very hard. The hotel definitely needs a refurbishment as far as beds, and in general some finishes, trims that sort of thing. As others have stated there is a odor at certain points in the hallways, although the first floor was perfect, the second floor hallway had a maybe a musky or chemical type smell, but was not noticeable in the rooms with the dehumidifier or AC going.There is about a 1 inch gap under each door, I assume its there because there are tiles in the entrance where there used to be carpet, but the gap should be made much smaller. Our room at least had an exposed wire running from the air conditioner unit, I don't know if all the rooms are left the same way, and it you walk the hallways you can see a wire here and there that is exposed and should be covered. I would stay here again if the price was right and I was looking for a clean hotel in a great location. As far as fees, we paid $2.50 a day for a resort fee, which includes the fridge and microwave, internet. There was no $100 cash only safety deposit as listed on some websites.

It's a normal hotel with convinient location to reach main Orlando destinations like Universal Studios, Disney World or Premium Outlets. The room was spacious but without a fridge. The hotel has a swimming pool but we didn't have a chance to use it. It also has big parking lot and the first hotel in our Florida trip with elevator.

We stayed at the hotel after arriving at about 3:00 am after visiting Universal's Halloween Horror Nights. The hotel is incredibly convenient to the park and the front desk was fully staffed at that hour to check us in. The hotel was pretty clean and decently comfortable. You can't beat it for the price.

Stayed at this hotel in may this year as part of a road trip we had planned to florida keys - were really glad to have booked another place to stay as we would not have wanted to stay here a minute longer than necessary! Although it was clean enough, it was old and run down, and didn't feel very secure! Overall it didn't have a good feel to it, though the location of the hotel was very good!

Stayed here for two weeks with 3 other girls. Upon arrival we were told that we had only booked one room, you can imagine my horror after a long flight all I wanted to do was go to bed so to be told all 4 girls had to share one room was like a nightmare. After explaining we had definatly paid for two rooms the receptionist looked into it further. She was really helpful and gave us a room to chill out in until she had sorted it. A hour later she called to say the other room was ready and managed to get one on the same floor. She was really helpful as we're all the staff we met here. The free shuttle to the parks is great! The best bit about the hotel has to be the location you are so close to all the restaurants and bars and shops even if you don't feel like walking you can jump on the iride which there is a stop literally outside the hotel. I would definatly reccomend staying here!! Overall a brilliant time!!!!

this is a average hotel needs updating very dated we had a fortnight here it done its job ok for sleeping in pool small but ok sunbeds uncomfortable no padding the property is close to universal parks a 15 to20 minute walk the walk is safe wet and wild opposite if you are only going to sea world and aquatica then you can get a i trolley ticket and thatb will take you there if you need disney parks you are better off buying a links bus ticket that will take you where you want. food the black angus which is attached to the hotel is a bit pricey i found breakfast ok but preferred the pondorassa as for evening meals it was expensive compared to other eateries.i was charged different prices for beer every time i went to bar ranging from 4dollars to 8dollars when i question this i was given various reasons from you have to be at the bar to pay less not with your meal or it was not the right time for cheaper prices so i went to other places which had a standard price.one word of warning do not eat in wild jacks it is really expensive we had two beers two orange juice and two rack of ribs the bill came to 80 dollars a real rip off. the theme parks are great the live up to all the claims if you have kids over 10 you will not need disney land and busch gardens is much better than animal kingdom the only good part of animal kingdom is everest and the saffari its ok if you can get a cheap enough ticket. buy your tickets at home get flex tickets or multi tickets as they are much cheaper than on international drive example we were quoted from 95dollars to 65dollars for tickets to animal kingdom i ended up paying 50dollars in the end but as you can see a huge price range.
