I looked at many reviews before going here and many scared me and made me skeptical of the price but it was actually very and no issues arose, so it is well worth the money. We stayed for 2 nights for our trip to universal and it served its purpose perfectly.

This used to be a Baymont Inn. It did shut down for a while I’m guessing due to Covid and switching management. But it has really gone downhill and I cannot say it’s because of the price you pay. It’s inexpensive but when I’ve stayed before it was satisfactory but this time it was not good. They renovated the room with new furniture headboards… Read more
This used to be a Baymont Inn. It did shut down for a while I’m guessing due to Covid and switching management. But it has really gone downhill and I cannot say it’s because of the price you pay. It’s inexpensive but when I’ve stayed before it was satisfactory but this time it was not good. They renovated the room with new furniture headboards etc. Literally the room is supposed to come with a mini fridge and when I opened the cabinet the mini fridge had mold and look like it was there since the hotel shut down last year! The receptionist I’m guessing was new and didn’t know how check ins worked so the guy who clearly wanted to leave for the day which I get Changing shifts, left her to handle everything and she took forever. It was OK for one night but the bed was very uncomfortable. The chair at the desk was dirty . One of the lamps on the side of the bed must’ve been there only for decoration because there was no outlet and it wasn’t plugged in . As with a few other cheap As with a few other cheap places in Orlando there is not breakfast or shuttle service. Read less

Came to this hotel from California to stay in this hotel for business and our first night we see a big roach and tried getting a hold of someone over and over through the number for after hours and nothing! Tried texting and calling different numbers for the hotel and still nothing!! At first it was ringing and then after it goes straight through to voicemail. Cant even leave a voicemail or anything!! This is ridiculous!! We didn’t come to this place to get screwed over and nobody is doing anything about it!! Down right the crappiest place I’ve ever stayed in!! I didn’t even want to give this a hotel a star cause it’s not worth it!! Read less

We arrived on late Friday afternoon around 4:30 or so on March 12. I had a meeting to attend so my husband stayed at the hotel. He tried every vending machine in the hotel to get a bottle of water. The money kept being returned. So he went to the front desk to get some water. No water. He was told to go across the street to the 7/11 to buy water.… Read more
We arrived on late Friday afternoon around 4:30 or so on March 12. I had a meeting to attend so my husband stayed at the hotel. He tried every vending machine in the hotel to get a bottle of water. The money kept being returned. So he went to the front desk to get some water. No water. He was told to go across the street to the 7/11 to buy water. As a person who had 2 cerebral hemorrhages, he just looked at the traffic on this main intersection and realized he'd probably get killed walking across the street. So he went back into the lobby and started yelling about how he could get some water. A woman offered him a small bottle of water and then then someone who worked in the spa in the lobby gave him a bottle of water. Breakfast? Forget it. Coffee was good. Blueberry muffins were ok. I guess that's what some people call breakfast. Overpriced. The beds were comfortable, hence the 2 rating. Read less
