Average room at best

Bad points: Had to change rooms upon arrival as initial room had an unpleasant odour. Towels and bed sheets weren't changed daily, but when asked to do so at reception they did do it. Wifi never worked. Some of the amenities were not present in the room as advertised. Good points: Great location. Cheap hotel for just somewhere to sleep. Secure.

Worst hotel ever

This hotel is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in . We waited over an hour for 5 sets of people to check in , when it was our turn we then had to wait again as 2 sets of people came back for a refund as they walked in the rooms and saw the condition . The lift took 10 mins and the safety certificate was out of date , hence we walk the 5th floor every time . There were no towels or blankets available at all for two days . No internet . Toilet seat fell off every time you sat on it .there were ants in the rooms and room stank of foist.this truly was terrible . Do not spoil your holiday by staying in this filth even if it is cheap . We didn't try the cleaning staff as we were too scared to trust them as the safe had the locks drilled out .

Group getaway

Brilliant location on I-Drive - right outside a trolley stop. We got a great deal on this hotel and I could not fault it. The rooms were spacious and very clean with a big comfy bed. There was also tea/coffee facilities available in the room with a large refrigerator and a microwave which was very helpful. Did not have much interaction with the staff but when we were looking for directions, they were very helpful. I will be staying there again

Absolutely Awful

would never recommend this hotel, we checked in and within the hour we checked out. The room was dirty and there were stains on the floor and bedding. The area it was located felt unsafe, the lift and staircase to the room were in a dark corridor which smelt of urine and there was a door joinin the room up to next door which was also not safe as anyone could have broken into our room. Would never recommend this hotel in a million years.

Huonoin hotellikokemus

Hotellissa, jonka olin etukäteen maksanut ei ollutkaan huonetta seurueellemme. Tilapäishuone oli siivoamaton, eikä sisältänyt luvattua varustelua, kuten minibaaria, pyyhkeitä sekä langatonta internettiä. Onneksi saimme hoidettua itsellemme toisen hotellin ja rahat palautettiin pikaisesti.

ça pourrait être un super hôtel, dommage...

Les chambres sont nettoyées que superficiellement. On devait avoir des chambres de qualité supérieur, avec mini frigo et micro-onde... dommage elles étaient déjà occupées. On a eu des chambres standard sans frigo ni micro-ondes, pourtant c'était un des critères qui nous avait amené à choisir cet hôtel. De plus on a demandé plusieurs fois un lit bébé, la personne de la réception doit être encore entrain de se renseigner.

L hotel est tres bien situe entre sea world et universal studios et à proximite de l 'aeroport. de nombreux restaurant à proximite avec un plus pour la chaine pondoresa ou les buffets a volonte sont tres interressants et le personnel adorable. Par contre la chambre etait spacieuse mais sale avec de la moquette pas aspiree depuis longtemps et la literie douteuse. Pendant les vacances de fevrier c'etait tres calme et silencieux.

Abgewohntes Hotel

Es gibt bessere Hotel am Int.Dr. zu diesem Preis! In unserem Zimmer funktionierte nur im Bad das Licht! Das Zimmer wurde nur jeden 2. Tag aufgeräumt, was wir schon fast besser fanden, da nach der Reinigung immer die Handtücher gefehlt haben! Die Reklamation an der Rezeption war den Mitarbeitern herzlich egal. Am WoE gab es kaum freie Parkplätze!
