Not impressed,

What hotel? Our room was double booked and taken so we were sent to a disgusting and filthy hotel for the first night. We refused the first room sent to and the other at least didn't smell as bad as the first room. Instead of 2 queens,we had to share a double bed. The Floridian on our 2nd night was just a typical room and we were glad to leave. Not impressed at all, what an awful way to start a vacation.

Never got my room

Arrived and the receptionist told us they had a problem with our room (aka: overbooked) and that they could send us to a TravelLodge 15 mins away. ----Unbelievable!!!

WAS STOLEN IN THE ROOM!

Would not recommend this hotel to anyone, I was staying now at the end of August and was robbed inside the hotel was on the third floor, in the morning im go with my family to the Universal park and when I returned my MacBook Air with charger and bag that it was next to the bed was gone, not only the notebook, a Garmin GPS and all phone chargers were also stolen, i to acknowledge that leaves them as the view but as had been indicated by other trusted friends, I miss so returned the night and called the police who registered the case, the hotel said is not responsible and so far I have not been refunded my injury, I learned from other Brazilians in the hotel were also stolen, everything indicates that it was the hotel staff they stole or facilitated because only they had the key (card) port according to the manager. Do not host at this hotel!

friends vacation

It s a good place to stay for your money, no gym, no laundry facilities, staff friendly but doesn't seem to go the extra mile it's like walking in and out and they don't seem to care you're there... carpet dirty, just average place to stay, good housekeeping tho they give you new towels and sheets everyday.

Good Place

The hotel was what I expected for the price that I payed. It was clean and the location is great. Nothing fancy, but for under $100 a night I was satisfied. Free hotel parking and shuttle to Universal was a big plus!
