  • Group of friends

    Cheap, free shuttle to the parks, good pool and pool area, good beds

    Safe in the room did not work, strange bathroom with sinks outside the bathroom, varying staff quality, some were really nice while others not so much.

  • Family with children

    The hotel has an excellent location on International Drive

    The rooms are very, very basic and everything was broken. The coffee maker was broken, the hair dryer and there was no fridge as advertised. They advertise that their rooms are modernised, but our room certaintly was not. However, the maintenace man made every effort to ensure the room facilities were fixed.

  • Couple

    It's cheap and its location is great. There are many many things to do near by. If you're going to Orlando for its attractions and you don't care about fancy hotels, than it's the place for you. É barato e muito bem localizado, tem muitas coisas pra se fazer nas proximidades. Se você está indo pra Orlando pelas suas atrações e não se importa muito com hotéis chiques, esse hotel é indicado pra você.

    Well, you get what you paid for...The hotel is very very simple. The internet didn't work in my room and the front desk couldn't do anything about it. The water was dripping from the faucets in the bathroom and the hotel did nothing about it. Bem, você recebe o que pagou...O hotel é muito muito simples. A internet não funcionava no meu quarto e a recepção não fez nada pra arrumar. Tinha água pingando das torneiras do banheiro e o hotel não resolveu o problema.

  • Couple

    When we checked out.

    the wifi wasnt working and wasted an afternoon with the manager switching rooms to see if we could get a better wireless signal but we had no joy. we were woken up at 4am by people outside our door chatting. we checked out after the first night, we were supposed to stay there another 8 nights. we thought there was going to be a microwave in the room but there wasnt. overall we were very disapointed with this hotel. there was no Manager to speak to after 4 or 5pm so if we had any complaints we had to wait until 9am the next day when the Manager was on duty.

  • Couple

    The only thing I did not like the hotel was the wireless internet service. It was offered that the wireless internet was included in the room, but in none of the days I could connect to it.

  • Group of friends

    Motel room was already heated, which was very comfortable given the fact there was around 5 degrees celcius.

    Internet was not working - I was told max 50 people can be logged in to wifi. But motel has around 200 rooms! Staff was unhelpfull and rude, adviced me to go to business center, catch signal on the streets or wait (another 3 hours). They charge additional 5 usd resort tax. Heater/airconditioner full of dust, bath dirty.

  • Couple


    The hotel rooms werent clean and they were stinky. THe staff was really rude.

  • Family with children

    I did not like anything. It was the worst experience in my whole life

    The rooms were dirty (very dirty). I was informed that they just make the rooms every other day. They lost a package that was sent to me to the Hotel and did not want to be responsible for that. The employees were very rude an unpolite and were not prepared to help. No manager in charge. A complete mess. Never come to this hotel.......

  • Family with children

    Nothing I found cockroaches inside the room.

  • Older travelers

    Hotel room spacious - clean and plenty storage. Complimentary breakfast - great early on but if you waited to 9am very busy

    Noisy traffic on I4 - plastic bowls plates with breakfast

  • Older travelers

    the room was very small and uncomfortable. Upon arrival, I felt hoodwinked after asking to cancel two of the three nights I reserved. My last experience with Howard Johnson.

    Not a good experience, I was leaving early in the morning and left my wife asleep, but was going to take her a piece of fruit/muffin and to my suprise, I was confronted at the door and told I could not leave with it and rather than allow me to leave with the couple of items I had for my wife, the option was to throw it in the trash, but not leave with it since I had pick it up, knowing no one else would want something I had touched.

  • Couple

    I didn't like anything about the place, it was the most disgusting, vile place I have ever encountered. The health inspector should be called to close the place down. Stains on the carpet, chairs, table, walls. I killed a cockroach. They have 2 specific notices on all bedroom doors to keep your belongings locked away and out of sight and on the guest directory and on the back of the keycard holder - we felt safe!!. The walls have never been painted since it opened as far as I could see. I am a hotel manager and I would never pay anyone to stay there let alone charge someone. Thank God got involved and got them to refund 2 nights accomodation for us (we paid for 3) and checked out the next day). I feel sorry for the manager working there and the receptionist, they must hear complaints all day every day and they were very proffessional and courteous when we checked in. But seriously if the owners read this, close the place down or demolish it because thats all its worth.

    I think I got my point across!

  • Single

    Very good location, good price and clean.

    poor breakfast but the price is good, so no problem, if I want I can eat in another place easy.

  • Family with children

    Location was great!

    Run down hotel, most appliances didn't work (hairdryer, lights, sockets) and breakfast wasn't great.

  • Family with children

    The front desk staff was friendly.

    The rooms and building were old and not maintained well. The breakfast was not good. The shuttle service to and from Universal ran only one time over and one time back, 12 hours apart. I will never stay in the hotel or recommend this hotel. The 3 star rating was extremely generous as I would rate it a 1 at best.
