But the room was nice enough, the staff was pleasant and effective, and I had a great time. I used GetaRoom to book it. This time, I went to see Billy Idol. He...

Great Hotel! Rooms were spacious and clean, nice pool, helpful employees- restaurant and bar on the premises. The only drawback to this hotel was that it was a walk to International Drive- not a problem if you had a car- But this trip I didn't rent a car. Other than that it was a nice stay- will go back there...

Please be advised that when I arrived in my room the a/c unit was not cooling enough and that issue in Florida is very uncomfortable. There was a lot of water in the rug due to the a/c leaking. The strong smell of wet rug was not pleasant. Finally, I find it ridiculous and unprofessional for your front desk staff...

Overall, our stay was great. We had a couple of issues, but they were quickly addressed by staff. Luciano who's the bartender at Sharky & Jack's was fantastic, as well as desk attendant Enrique! My family overall enjoyed our stay and will be back.
