definitely not what I expected from a 3 star hotel

Did not appear to be what I was told through my booking! First of all, it did not appear very well kept. I was told there would be a shuttle to pick up from airport - this was not true! Second of all, I was told there would be shuttle running to Universal. Well there was but only twice a day to park and ONE time only return and that was at 6:00 p.m. Next, we proceed to elevator - I see spider crawling across rug and elevator was so small (and only one for entire 6 floors) that we had to wait to be on by ourselves just to get on with one luggage a piece. Then, we approach our room with there being couches and chairs in the hallway making it difficult to get by. I guess they were updating but however our room still had a couch that my daughter who was supposed to sleep on (petrified of spiders). I was afraid for her to sit on let alone sleep on. My husband went to bathroom and toilet would not flush. Tried to put chain on but almost impossible and that was it!!!! I was booking another room and cutting my losses! I was not going to let this ruin our graduation gift to our daughter. I would not recommend this hotel unless there are many improvements! Very disappointed in KY!

Fantistic family oriented Hotel.

Our experience at this Hotel was a very positive one!! Everything from check in to check out was such a postive experience. The rooms were very clean, (all the way down to the dishes and silverware), roomy and comfortable. The staff were very helpful, making our visit easy and simple. The television channels in the room were very appropriate for my little ones and very accomodating for them. The hotel has an excellent pool and Jacuzzi, excellent for swiiming and relaxing. I trully give this hotel a "two thumbs up" and a rating of ten.

Better than expected

I was here for my 5 days stay for spring break with my friend and it was positive experience. The room was clean and neat, had small kitchen where we can cook. The location was very near to Universal Studios, I think it took only about 5 minutes or so. Disney was quite far, took 20 minutes on taxi and about an hour on the shuttle. There are a lot of restaurants in walking distance, pool was nice. I think the hotel was more than I expected at this price.
