Stayed here for two weeks in June 2015 and it was everything we needed. Great location within walking distance of International Drive and many restaurants. Getting to the parks was easy enough using the Uber app (really cheap as well, well worth considering) and was much easier/cheaper than hiring a car. Room was basic but very clean and comfortable. Would...

Our first three nights stay was very challenging. A lot of things was wrong in the room. The hot water didn't work, the bathroom tub leaked and caused the carpet to be wet and smelly. We complained and asked for the manger. The manager JHERUSA was extremely helpful and she assisted us and made our stay so comfortable and enjoyable....

This hotel was the first stop for my husband and I. Our general expectations for a hotel is a clean room, wifi and free parking availability and I usually pick a hotel that has breakfast in the AM so we can get going faster to the main event. When we checked in, we were told that breakfast was available, but...

The staff did not pay close attention to request. Not good for handicap persons who need a suite or need high toilet. Had to make two trips to the desk and still could not get room location desired. Staff also not very accommodating when we had a large group and needed a room or tables for meet and greet.

Staff were friendly and helpful. Anpavia printed our boarding passes for us when we were unable to do so at the provided computers and kiosk. They provided us with extra towels when we got caught in several rain showers.

This was a great, clean hotel that offered several ammenities. We only stayed one night, but got to enjoy the pool. The room was clean, the beds were comfy, and we had many towels! The pool was in great shape. I would definitely stay here again, especially for the price we paid (Much better than other hotels) and within walking...

I know I am not suppose to do this but I am personally going to give a shout out to "DIANA - Forte Myers" . We stayed at this hotel for about 8 - 10 days, but the very first day we got there it was far from what we saw when we booked online and I was almost about...

The hotel seemed well managed and clean. It is located close to Wet n Wild and Universal Studios and about a 25 minute drive to Disney. Don't take the cabs outside the hotel. They did not have a meter and overcharged a lot. There is a nice pool with a very nice lounge area outside. The room was clean and...
