Great for an extended stay
Posted Nov 2, 2014
I booked this hotel quickly without doing much research ahead of time. After I had my 4-night reservation, I went back and read everyone else's reviews. I was a bit worried based on what everyone was writing, but I'm pleased to say that with my lowered expectations, everything worked out.
The hotel IS in a rough part of the city. It is literally on the edge between the nicer shopping areas on the apparently infamous OBT and the very seedy areas. If you're expecting the Florida retreat experience, keep away. If you're just in town for business or anything not related to Disney and other parks, you shouldn't have too many concerns. While riding to the hotel can make you nervous, once you're there, you probably won't have any problems. Just don't leave anything of value in your car.
Clean! Big! Jacuzzi tub!! I didn't realize that I had reserved a room with a living room, kitchen, and two bathrooms, but for the price I paid, I definitely got my money's worth (maybe because it was off-season). My only complaints were that the Jacuzzi water wasn't hot enough, the toilet kept running at times throughout the night, and some of the HD TV channels wouldn't work. Other than that, all was good. Free wifi was installed just the week before I got there, and every room comes with a safe.
Overall, not bad, but don't let your guard down, either.
