The hotel

The Rosen Inn is just a mile from Universal Orlando Resort™, perfectly located for fans of thrill rides like the Incredible Hulk Coaster® and Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey™. If you are a non-driver, the hotel operates an excellent complimentary scheduled shuttle service to select theme parks. The Palms Dining Room provides a great value breakfast buffet for families, Shogun Japanese steakhouse serves delicious cuisine and Sakura Sushi Bar featuring freshly-prepared sushi rolls, nigari and sashimi served in an intimate setting. For an early evening reviver, The International Pub is on hand with a suitably global array of cocktails and American cuisine. Nearby attractions include the I Drive 360, Madame Tussauds wax museum, and Pirates Adventure Dinner Show — an experience well worth checking out.

I have been returning to this hotel for the past 7 years and we have never had a problem . It’s an old hotel but spotless clean . The staff are very friendly and do their best to accommodate any requests . It’s also the best value for International drive . And also it was the bests beer on International drive as well .

We stayed for two weeks in Feb 2022 on a BA package. We wanted somewhere easy for Universal and also not too far from Daytona International and this fitted the bill.

We stayed for two weeks in Feb 2022 on a BA package. We wanted somewhere easy for Universal and also not too far from Daytona International and this fitted the bill. Let's do the negatives first - room was dark even with curtains open and lights on. The alarm clock seemed to automatically reset for 6am each day - so be warned! (To be fair, I just reset it each day and did not ask at reception how to stop it, instructions on Google didn't help). We did find that people shouted along the corridor to friends in different rooms and allowed their kids to run up and down the corridor - parents, please be mindful of other people! The positives - which far, far outweigh the two negatives! Large room, two very comfortable beds. Working fridge and microwave. Air con was very effective. Lovely clean towels every day. Swimming pool - warm and good quality towels provided. No resort or parking fee and security on the gate at all times. Walking distance for some restaurants and not far to others. We chose to walk to Universal - around 30 minutes, wide pavements, plenty of crossings etc so felt perfectly safe. No interaction needed with reception apart from checking in and out and staff we did encounter, were always friendly and polite and greeted us with a cheery hello. I didn't need to use the laundry facilities but they looked good. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Read less

This is a great hotel and in a greAt location on international drive Applebee’s is cross the road and Great ice cream place too wow my li 4 year loved it. Walgreen down the road which not far and you can take the bus to wallmart. The hotel room was great I gave it a three cause the bathroom was very small but the space where you sleep huge it had it all the internet kept going on and off but it was ok I guess and another reason why I have it 3 was the deli food in the shop the pizza as horrible not cooked and the chips horrible and when you go down to complain no one in the shops never anyone there and that was really annoying. The people around the hotel are nice and helpful Great place the pool is nice too same they could have had a kids pool Read less

I checked out on the 25 January, no damage to the room and was advised that the $60 dollars for incidentals I was charged would be refunded shortly after we left but has not been done. Tried emailing the hotel but it keeps timing out with the I am not a Robot for verification. I live in Scotland so I am not calling them
