Happy for the rate deal I got.. I would not pay anymore

I only slept there, so I have not much complaint. The continental breakfast was okay just wish they had some fruits. The lobby area looks good but the way to the rooms need some renovation help like new carpets. I would recommend this hotel if you are just looking for some where to lay your head after you finish enjoying your daily activities in the town. The best attractions are the pool love it and that there is a refrigerator and microwave in the room, so I had my little grocery that I didn't have spend a lot on food. Also, dominoes deliver until 3am. I will stay here again... orlando is basically my second home.

Good hotel for the price.

The Floridian was very affordable and right next to universal which was a plus. Everything was very neat and organized in the room. It did get a bit hot in the room at night as the AC unit was under a little bench. That would be the only thing I would change about the room. I did have several issues to where my room keys stop working and constantly had to replace them during my stay. The front desk staff were ok they did their job, but it did bother me that I was not even greeted while at the desk, and during when I was being helped the phone was answered with not even " Do you mind if I answered this call?" As a guest I felt ignored at that point. Overall the stay was pleasant and worth the money I would recommend and was a good value hotel.

BEWARE- ITEMS ARE NOT SAFE IN ROOM

Unfriendly staff at check in. Room was extremely hot and humid when we arrived. Carpet has been recently replaced in room but otherwise everything is extremely old and dirty. Very uncomfortable beds! We returned on the second day to find the housekeeper had removed all our items from the room and refrigerator even though we had paid in full for 3 nights. Managed to get my daughter's pillow back from housekeeping but without the pillowcase! No apologies or explanation as to why it was taken. The other items from the refrigerator and dresser were never recovered. We decided not to stay the 3rd night due to safety concerns and stolen items not being returned. We ask the hotel manager to call us several times and left messages and our personal cell numbers. It has been over a week with no response!!! So we are out our items and the money we paid for this hotel! HORRIBLE!!!!!! I WOULD NOT RECOMMED THIS HOTEL TO ANYONE! YOUR PERSONAL ITEMS ARE NOT SAFE! THERE ARE PLENTY OF BUDGET FRIENDLY HOTELS IN THE AREA - STAY SOMEWHERE ELSE!!!!!!

Great location, reasonable room

We stayed here two nights to visit Universal Studios. The hotel is located in a strip of other hotels and is right off the main road you take to get to Universal, Disney and other attractions. There are many food options in the area. The pool was clean and open until 10. Free HBO provided us with free entertainment. The woman at the front desk was polite. Room service made the bed and brought new towels while we were gone. We enjoyed our stay.

Good value for price

If your in the area and looking for just a place to rest your head, well this is it. Perfect for those who spend less time at a hotel and more time with all the attractions. The location is not too bad if you wanna walk I suggest taking the right when you get at the main exit, it's closer to reach food like tgif and also a grocery store, I drive is walking distance from here and lots of great restaurants to choose from all day. Lots of parking and free wifi with good coverage. The rooms could smell a bit nicer though! Overall like I said good value for resting after a long day out at all the attractions.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

From the main entrance turn right and go around the block, it's easier to get to all the dining you want and if you don't feel like walking afterwards just hop on one of the bicycle service that's available all day to take you back to the hotel! Dennys is my favorite for the convenience of opening 24/7. I Hop also has a great breakfast!

Economical - Great Location

I recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to stay near International Drive at an affordable price. The location is on a quieter road with quick access to the main traffic arteries. The only thing possibly "wrong" was that the breakfast only consisted of toast or waffles. We will stay here again on our next Orlando trip.

O.K. Falsely advertised “continental breakfast"

The continental breakfast they have that was advertised as having fresh fruit and French toast and a bunch of other stuff consisted of a choice between wheat bread and white bread with grape or mixed fruit jelly. Fruit loops cereal, some sort of watery fountain orange and apple juices one choice of tea and regular or decaf coffee and waffles you had to wait in line to make yourself. They also ran out of the jelly and their milk dispenser broke down while I was there.

If you're there for multiple days go to any visitor center/shop and get trolley passes they're very cheap ($7 for three days and so on) and they go to all the major locations/attractions and you won't have to worry about parking/parking fees.

Look for better place if possible.

The building was old and the rooms had foul smell. Our room did not have curtains but the staff switched us to different room without any questions asked. Breakfast is okay.
