While not the most glamorous hotel I've ever stayed in, it's been clean and quiet. I've even heard the crickets. Plenty of space in the room, nice shower pressure and staff have been friendly and accommodating to me, especially Kunar and Maria.

A friend came from west coast and stayed at this hotel. Photos on website are accurate. Hotel is old. Stairway smelled like pee. No hot water all weekend. Hotel windows had no screens. Don't waste your money. Find a better hotel!

There was not hot water, I was not able to connect to the wifi, and the carpet was wet. We contacted the management office requesting to put us in another room but they were not able to do it until the next day.

4 nights spent here. Dated hotel but clean rooms. Great location close to Wet & Wild, Universal Studios. Some of the clientele we're undesirable, but all in all decent place for a decent price. Later in the fortnight we stayed in another low cost hotel in Orlando and the Floridian Express was much better located and a far better hotel.

Smashing hotel! We stayed here for 14 nights and had literally no complaints. Fresh towels every day, beds made every day and changed every other day, except sunday. Perfectly set on international drive across the road from Wet n Wild, Ponderosa, Applebee's and a 10 min walk from Red Lobster, Buffalo Wild Wings, IHOP and Dennys. For the hotel, we...
