“Most convenient, low-cost, hotel to the West OC Convention Center”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 December 2013

On a graduate student budget, this was the best hotel we could find with the most convenient location to the West Orange County Convention Center. The hotel room itself was not bad for 4 girls to share. Things went down hill when we noticed spiders coming from the light on the bed side stand. At midnight on one of our 6 nights there, we had to switch rooms. I was, however, surprised how easy it was for us to move rooms.

I do not recommend using the "cabs" that sit out from of the hotel. I have been in many cities for conventions, and these were the shadiest of people I have met. The "cab" did not have a meter, the driver had no idea where he was going, he even took my cell phone for a while, trying to figure out where to go. We had to give him directions to the destination which was 2 miles north of where we were at.

The pool was about the nicest part of the hotel. The breakfast was nice, but if you got there right when the breakfast time began, the food was cold.

I don't think I would ever stay there again, but all in all, it wasn't that bad

Room Tip: I would as for a room close to the front but on the second floor

The room and service was better then expected after reading the reviews. Every thing was good, room was clean and the staff was helpful and friendly. They had no problem with us checking in early, unlike some places I have stayed.

The management and front desk workers were extremely helpful and very friendly. We were there for a conference and they did an excellent job suggesting places to go eat and drink. Rooms were clean and they do offer a complimentary breakfast (will get cold if you get there late though). Had a great time at the happy hour that they had set up for the hotel guests. Bar tender made some great drinks and was fun to hang with. Overall it was a great stay and it took only about a 7 minute walk to get to the Orange County Convention Center.

We had an ok stay here. Not amazing but by no means bad. Just average. The motel was clean enough and the facilities where adequate. I have no really complaints. The staff where helpful and the bus service was good. Location is perfect for parks and I drive. The hotel needs a little bit TLC but by no means is the worst. I would stay their again without a worry or a hesitation.

Hotel was clean. Age of hotel shows in the somewhat tired appearance. Gentleman who checked us in was a bit curt and not so friendly... everyone else for the remainder of our stay was very friendly and professional. Pool was a bit grungy. Beds were comfortable. Pull out sofa bed was a joke. Breakfast was good enough and shuttle services offered to attractions were a plus. Location also a plus.

Hallways were filthy but it looks like they were starting to replace some of them. The room was acceptable except for those goofy small pillows they put in all the Choice hotels. Breakfast was adequate but do not expect any choice as juice is a $2 option at breakfast. Eggs were cool, sausage was cool--cereal was ok because the milk was cold. Biggest problem at breakfast--NO PLACE TO SIT!!! The breakfast area is very small unless you want to go outside (it was 35 degrees when we were there). Overall, I cannot recommend this hotel as there are too many hotels in Orlando that have a cleaner facility and charge the same prices.

Room Tip: Choose another hotel.

Pool was a little dirty, could hear the tv from the room next door, Breakfast was decent... location is pretty good as well.. very very close to the Orange Country Convention center.. Denny's, Red Lobster are near by if you are willing to walk a bit goto Tommy Bahama's Grill leave the lobby turn left it will be on your right side about 1 mile or 1.5 mile down the road.
