A very noisy place to stay. I would not recommend it. The cleaning lady is in and out of the room in 10 mins and the floor doesnt get cleaned. When waiting to pick up the shuttle bus from Universal it is chaos as the drivers calling out some hotels saying no to your hotel then changing their mind. I...

Put us in the wrong room for the first night, supposed to be a king but gave us a queen. Beds were ok for price. Shower didn't really get hot ever. Towels were so thin and tiny it was like drying yourself with a tea towel. List of replacement items way overpriced. Staff called us a taxi who was their...

Overall, my stay didn't have any problems per se, but I did observe a lot of issues. The room isn't as bad as it is made out to be by other reviewers, but you have to expect of level of uncleanliness and shabbiness in the rooms. Overall, I took most issue with the fact that there were so many strangely...

You get what you pay for in Heart of I drive. No luxury here but clean sheets and towels daily, free parking and WiFi. Onsite laundry facility was very convenient. The location was super for all of the theme parks and plenty of shops and restaurants right beside it. The breakfast was nothing to write home about though!

This, as cheap as it sounds, is not a good option for your Orlando vacation. Rooms are quite creepy, dirty and overall old. Bathtub is small, towels are like using sandpaper and there is zero customer care. The guy at the reception was so unfriendly and they charged us $79 extra dollars foR "taxes not included in the online reservation"...

We booked this hotel for its location. Close to Universal Studios and with shuttles to all Disney Worlds and Universal, free wifi and breakfast. The front of house staff could not answer a single tourist question and were very rude. The wifi was hit and miss and was very slow. The shuttle service only ran once in the morning and...

Rude staff, filthy conditions including blood and urine stains on bed, mold, rust, bathroom curtain rod literally falling out of wall. Manager impossible to get a hold off, staff hung up on me when I called, manger not answering emails and will not offer refund, We should have slept just slept in the car instead.

I stayed at this motel last night, as my Airbnb reservation fell through, it was late, and I needed a place to sleep. I know that Orlando has hundreds of motels, and some are pretty inexpensive, but there was nothing available within my budget, so I booked this. First of all, when I get there, I find out that the...
