Located about a mile from convention center, in the middle of all the restaurants. Everything was within walking distance. Room was great, breakfast was very good, and staff was very friendly. Will stay there again when I attend the next convention in Orlando.

Pros: Pretty much all.
Cons: Twice I mentioned at the frontdesk that they should please fill up our bodywash and schampoo but it did not happen. Service makes the difference.
Location: The eye! Ripleys museum, Pirate minigolf in front and the pizzeria next door we ate a family of 5 for 32 dolars on the buffet including refill drinks.
Good location, perfect breakfast buffet, small gym good enough for my needs. Family friendly and good distribution of the rooms.

Pros: Spacious rooms, free breakfast, great location
Cons: No phone reception and wifi did not work
Location: Universal, Ripley's Believe it Or Not
This hotel is perfect for a long weekend stay. The rooms are spacious and affordable. The hot breakfast buffet has enough variety. The food was not great but okay for 2 or 3 days. The location was great. Within 2 miles of Universal and 3 blocks from Ripley's Believe it Or Not. Lots of other things to do in the area as well. The only negatives were that we had zero phone reception in the hotel and the wifi didn't work but that wasn't that big of a deal for us. Also, there were only 2 times available for the shuttle bus to Universal in the morning and 2 at night so we ended up going in our car and paying $30 for preferred parking ($20 for regular). Overall we had a very good stay and would recommend.

Thanks so much for staying with us and thanks for writing a review! I'm glad you enjoyed the hotel and found our location convenient. Sorry to hear you had a problem with cell phone reception during your stay, we don't hear that very often on International Drive. Perhaps there was a problem during the dates you were here. We hope you decide to stay with us again on your next trip to Orlando!
