We reserved 2 rooms since July 13 for January 1st. When we were checking in, only one room appeared. At some point they told us that Orlando wass full because of the Holidays (like there was nothing they could do). But after almost one hour they found a room for us. Otherwise the service was good. Rooms refurbished, strong dampness...

This place is your pretty standard 2 star motel, but in a great location right in the heart pulse of international drive. If your standards aren't too high than I doubt you'll be disappointed. Beds are decent and rooms have slight mildew smell but that's honestly 60% of the hotels in orlando. My real only gripe with this place is...

After 5 months of having me billed twice, they recognized their accounting mistake and sent me a check to my home country. But because I don't have a US account, the conversion would have cost me US$60 and not US$10 more than the paid price "for taking care of the banking expenses". So I had to negotiate the check with...

The business center was lacking a computer and printer; the window curtains in the room were fastened together with a safety pin and the curtains did not completely cover the window; the shower curtain kept sliding down the shower rod causing water from the shower to spray the bathroom; the coffee maker was a one-cup maker; the hair dryer was...

Front desk receptionist was very friendly. Hotel location was very convenient. But room ventilation was not too good. I have allergy to mold. It acted up while I was staying there. Housekeeper was too early. They came around 10am where we were still in bed.

Waited in line to check in for over 45 minutes, there was only 3 people in front of me. Bed was rock hard and the constant noise from outside and upstairs kept us up all night. Hot water was hooked up backwards and would fluctuate through the whole shower. Very disappointing experience. I won't be staying in that hotel again.

Obviously the location is great but nothing else. Check in took 30 minutes. It made no sense. No one at the front desk seemed to know howto check in a guest. The rooms are very warn. We had 2 rooms.
