    Old fashion hotel it needs more renovation especially in a touristic place like orlando

    Stayed 3 nights in Nov 2019


    • Liked: Cleanliness
    • Disliked: Property conditions & facilities

    Location is good. Lots of restaurants n places to eat that are in walking distance. The room itself wasn’t that great. Outdated. Blow dryer and phone did not work. Shower did not drain properly. Shower water wouldn’t get that hot.

    • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

    Nothing this is a bad hotel all together. I cleaned my own room on the first night. I took cleaning supplies from the room was decent. I also got into an argument with the front desk guy call apparently works there part-time because this place is a family-owned business they're on able to even give you a discount a refund or any vouchers for everything that you went through overall worst experience I've ever had in a hotel I would never recommend this place to anybody ever in life. There's hair all over the place that's not even your own and the bathrooms the sheets the towels it's super nasty. Please do not stay at this hotel, do not waste your money, if you stay there please wear a full bodysuit and wear protective gloves just to walk around the facilities it is super nasty. If you have a hotel and it does not meet the standards of who staying there you should not look at that person sideways but you should help them to at least be comfortable while they're there. I even asked if I could check out give me my money back and they wouldn't do that the guy just looked at me and stared he wears a hat with his hair up in a ponytail and he works part-time he is completely awful came up to my room and try to clean my room getting here all over the place, me and my sister told him to get out he had an attitude and then argue me down saying that he even tried. I wanted to check out we had to call maintenance over we waited all night up until 2 a.m toilets and bath clogged

    When we arrived after 4 pm for check-in they didn't even have a room ready yet. After waiting for a bit, they gave us a room on the corner right next to an exit door. Everytime someone entered or exited the door, it slammed shut and was very loud. We could hear all sorts of loud noises from our room which was no bueno. Also, they did not provide wash clothes which I thought was strange. Housekeeping didn't bother to make our bed while we were out and the TV didn't work. Also the breakfast was a little sad and half of the keycard entrances we tried didn't even work. I don't think I'll stay here ever again... I was very disappointed with this place!
