This is more of a motel type than a hotel, is dingy, dirty and filthy. So do your family and yourself a favor stay elsewhere There’s other hotels in the vicinity that are cleaner and much better. So even if it’s a bargain it’s not worth it

Perfectly fine for a Disney on a budget

May 2022 | acw07

I’ve given this place 3 stars because that’s really what it (the hotel) is aiming for. It’s a cheap place to stay for what will eventually be an expensive holiday (food / drink is not cheap!) so over all so it was perfect for our budget. I found our room to be comfortable, quiet and clean. You can hear some noise outside the room but I learned a long time ago to just take ear plugs everywhere I go now which always helps me. The air con unit is also pretty loud but it almost acted as white noise and didn’t bother us as we slept. You definitely need it on in the Florida heat! There were 2 queen sized beds in our room, they were firm which I fine for me. With plenty of pillows which were comfortable. For what you pay for it, and how long you are in the room it’s perfectly fine for 2 weeks. There is so much excitement to be had with all of the parks which are super conveniently located you hardly expect to be in the room much anyway! My only criticism regarding the room and word of advice for future travellers is that there are no coffee making facilities in the room. I didn’t ask reception but from reading other reviews I didn’t think it was worth the hassle to ask. If you like to have a coffee outside of breakfast hours, I would suggest taking a mini kettle / travel cup and buying the coffee supplies from the store. There is a good sized fridge in the room to store milk. My second issue with the hotel was that for the breakfast (which was very basic as described in other reviews) you had to use polystyrene plates, bowls, cups and plastics cutlery. I’m sure this is to cut costs but it bothered me to see so much single use waste. This wasn’t limited to the hotel though I found that excessive single use plastic was used in a lot of places. Having said that I’m not expecting the hotel to change this, but if this is something that does bother you and you’re trying to be more sustainable I would suggest taking some travel plates / cups / cutlery etc with you. I only took metal straws with me (which were also super useful in the parks) We had an incident with a blocked toilet on one occasion, my partner went to reception to ask for assistance and within 5 minutes someone had come to sort it out. They even fixed something else that they noticed whilst they were there. Great service. Didn’t have much other interaction with the staff but the little we did was friendly and polite. The pool looked nice although we didn’t use it, it seemed to be quite popular later in the day but not so busy, you could always see seats available. Rooms were cleaned sporadically throughout the 2 weeks. Sometimes every day sometimes it was left a couple days. Didn’t bother us, we had what we needed. I would recommend to someone staying on a budget but I would also probably try somewhere else next time and spend a little more. Note: there is a deposit ($100) which is charged on arrival. Not sure if it’s been refunded yet as we only just checked out a couple days ago.

Orlando on an EXTREMELY tight budget

May 2022 | 123georginat

Orlando on a VERY VERY tight budget! On arrival to the hotel, we weren’t greeted by the friendliest staff members, which was not the best start. Our room was extremely basic (which was fine), however, our telly did not work, the room had a musty smell and the sink was grubby. It was explained that the room would only been cleaned every three days, which we did not mind as the room only costed $50 per night. The breakfast was not the best, very dry turkey bits with fried eggs and plain potato wedges. Also with cereal, toast and muffin options with a selection of drinks. The dinning room tables were not cleaned after each customer left, even though there were members of staff just standing in the dining areas - not doing an awful lot, so had time to wipe some tables down. The whole feel about the hotel was unhygienic. I didn’t expect much with the amount of money we paid, but id expect a level of cleanliness, especially in the times we live in! Only tolerated this hotel as we only there to sleep, only had the breakfast for 2 out of 8 days we were there!
