Stayed for 3 weeks with my wife and 1 year old.

Pros
Breakfast inc. very friendly staff
Room cleaned everyday without fail
Location: 1 min to I trolley
2 mins to Wet and Wild
20 min walk to Universal/Islands of Adventure

Cons
Honestly, I thought this place was great value.
Overall

We emailed ahead of time and asked for a refurbished room. This may have helped remove issues others had.
You are not paying for a top of the range hotel but it is clean, the breakfast is good and the staff are friendly and helpful.
We would definitely stay here again.
Thanks

Stayed here for 2 weeks in July.
Reluctant to book because of some of the negative reviews but have to say that this is generally a good hotel.
Check inn was quick with friendly helpful staff and was given a room on ground floor by the pool.
Everything in the room worked including Microwave, Fridge, Safe etc. Most importantly the room was clean although dated and the bed was comfortable.

There is Wi-Fi but as like most hotels I stayed in in Orlando/Kissimmee, it is rubbish. You can only get on in the lobby where there always seems to be masses of people already surfing. It’s almost impossible to log on until reception reset the system and even then it is very slow. Can’t understand why hotels in developing countries provide excellent Wi-Fi but Florida cant?

The breakfast served every morning was of a continental style, meaning cereal’s/toast/bagels and hot drinks. This was adequate and the 2 ladies who work there appear to be very angry but are actually friendly when you get to know them and give them a bit of respect (unfortunately many of the guests I witnessed were rude and impatient with them).

The hotel location is excellent being almost opposite Wet n Wild on International drive. You save yourself a fortune by walking to Universal instead of paying the hefty car park fees. It’s only about a 20 – 25 min walk. Also using the cheap reliable I Drive trolley for Sea world and Aquatica.

I would give this a four rating but for the $5 a night resort fee?, poor internet and the fact that during the day the hotel grounds are clean and tidy but when you get back late in the day or night you find rubbish everywhere.

However i would stay again for the same price.

Room Tip: Leave the car and walk to Universal or use Trolley for other parks south on I Drive. You will save a fortune in car park fees.

For what we paid (which wasn't much!) I thought the hotel was great value, staff were friendly, our room was clean, the continental breakfast set us up for our busy day and the location was perfect also there was a microwave, fridge and safe in the room which was handy. The WIFI signal wasn't the best but apart from that I would recommend :)

When I walked in to the hotel the magic of Florida vanished. The women on reception had a bad attitude and we had to pay an extra $5 in tax.
The room was dark, the rain gave a better shower than the actual shower. The maid didn't change the bedding once so we had the same sheets for 2 weeks. The cleaner doesn't care if you have the do not disturb sign on, she will knock and knock. The breakfast was awful, if you like mouldy bread and cereal that's it. Keys sometimes work when they want. Wouldn't risk getting in the pool. PLEASE don't stay, there are plenty of good budget hotels! !

We stayed for two weeks in July 2013, this is by far the worst hotel we have ever stayed in. I was not expecting a champagne reception but I was expecting it to be clean. The breakfast was terrible the staff was rude, if you asked for anything they just rolled their eyes at you. If I could of afforded it I would have paid for another hotel. All I can say is people who recommend it must have really low standards. Florida is a lovely place with plenty of budget hotels but this was by far the worst we seen while we were there.

Room Tip: If you have booked this hotel ask for a pool view some of the rooms view is a brick wall about five foot away from the window.
