We arrived at 3:15 and were told that check in is at 4:00 PM. The room was big but the AC was very noisy. Room was clean but the Hotel lobby and halls need serious renovations. I would stay there again but would consider it more like a camping trip as the hotel price is very reasonable. The breakfast at the Black Angus restaurant is not great at all. They charge extra for coffee and juice, the buffet does not taste good and the restaurant is dirty.

I just had a (4) day stay and the place is a run down dump. Everything is dirty..from the hairs on the towels and in the shower. You totally get what you pay for and if being clean is not a necessity than this place is for you. Carpets were dirty, the grounds that the hotel sat on, trash in the parking lot..this was the worst hotel experience ever. Don't be fooled you get what you pay for.

Room Tip: Choose elsewhere...this place is a DUMP

we had three different rooms during our stay number one was dirty, smelt damp and had mould spores on the bed covers so we demanded a change. second room was slightly better and cleaner but the dehumidifier broke, room still smelt damp, third room was still basic but décor a little better, however all corridors were unkempt, washing machines in the laundry were broken as were the ice machines nearest to our rooms , pool area looked derelict. This hotel looked like it needed a complete overhaul, not in my opinion a place i would ever stay again even if it was free.

Room Tip: higher the floor better the room , we had rooms on three different floors

For the budget traveler, you get what you pay for. No frills, minimal amenities, although the swimming pool was huge, nice, and clean. Bed was comfortable. Room was sparse. Except for the one offputting cockroach in the bathroom, the place was serviceable. Quite near to Universal theme parks.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the pool are better.

There are good and bad points about this hotel.

The location is good on International drive opposite Wet and Wild and not far from Universal. A good pool that I only ever saw getting used once in my week long stay. Friendly staff who seem to be the hotels best asset. The room was cleaned well every day and only one day did we not get coffee.

Bad points, well our first room was on the 1st floor it was quite dingy and definately in need of a coat of paint/makeover. We were given another room on the third floor. It looked brighter but was still in desperate need of a makeover. The bathroom seemed to be infested with ants, silverfish and some tiny black dot like insects, remember this is a third floor room. Although the rest of the room seemed to be cleaned perfectly well. The carpet was stained and the hall ways had an old 80s? patterned carpet long past it's sell by date and it had so much fluff and rubbish all over it. Generaly I think the third floor wasn't used very much and so tended to be quiet apart from the last night (friday night) which was quite busy and noisey. .

Would I stay again probably not, purely because for the price I have stayed in nicer hotels close by. However, generaly the hotel is ok and the staff very friendly plus the pool is always empty.

Room Tip: Get a room away from the lift and for light and sunshine facing the pool, higher floors tend to be q...

I stayed her with my husband and teenage son.
Rooms smelt a bit funny and decor shabby. Rust stains in bath, broken tiles in bathroom and safe was broken. The pool was quite nice but freezing. The worst was the bed. They were so uncomfortable we did not sleep for the entire week - I was nearly in tears by the end - a comfy bed is a priority for us.
The location is great being directly opposite wet and wild. So you are in walking distance from most bars and diners on International drive.
We have visited USA every year for 23 years and we have come to expect better standards than this. Only a 2 star really.
