In May of 2011 my wife and I were attending a conference in Orlando and needed a hotel room for a couple of nights. I was a bit nervous about staying here from some of the reviews but we were shopping location to the Orlando Hilton, where the meetings were, and price. So I booked us in for one night, thinking that if it was really bad, we'd go somewhere else the next two.
This is an old property that has been renovated. The renovation was done okay but the property is not being kept up well so everything is quickly wearing again. Our bottom floor room was okay but was starting to wear out already. We did not see any bugs like others have and we got good rest, except for noisy guests directly above us. Folks, if you are going to stay in a hotel, be mindful that you are not at home and don't let your kids jump off the beds onto the floor at 1 in the morning!
The next day at checkout we decided we would stay there and asked for an upstairs room. The room we got was much nicer, almost brand new and hardly used after the renovation. Apparently they don't rotate the use of the rooms and book the bottom floor first so if you are going to stay here, ask for an upstairs room. Our second night was much better as the room was like being in a new hotel.
The breakfast experience is something else. Because this is a popular family motel, it's a whole lot of people jammed into a tiny space. Talk about elbows in ribs and it's LOUD! The food is okay...when you can get any. Don't go here for the food and try to eat as soon as the breakfast area opens.
The motel is a typical motel. The rooms have been renovated but are wearing out again and depending on which one you get, you may find mold, dirt, other problems and unwanted guests (roaches) sharing your pad. As far as our stay, it was okay. But you can find much better, cleaner properties just down the road for the same price!
