This is an okay hotel depending on what your using it for, being in Orlando we was out everday so it was just a place to wash and sleep.

This is an okay hotel depending on what your using it for, being in Orlando we was out everday so it was just a place to wash and sleep. It was a good location for universal which could either walk in 30 minutes or 6/7$ for a Uber which was about 5 minute drive. The hotel rooms and indoor pool are run down but the rest of the hotel is fine. The restaurant is nice serving burgers, chips, nachos, quesadilla, chicken tenders. They also have a Pizza Hut inside which is very good for the price we could get 7inch pizza, 3 breadsticks and a large soft drink for around $7 there open until late so we would always go in after the park closed. Can request fresh towels by putting a sign on your door and can request a room clean this is a free service. They charge $50 for damages to room which they refund and the end of the holiday. You can also rent the safe on the room for $1 dollar per day. They also offered souvenir cups 1 for $15 or 2 for $25 which are refillable for your whole stay including water, soft drinks, apple and orange juice, tea and coffee. The hotel offered a free shuttle to Universal city walk which picked up at either 7:30am or 10:30am and dropped back at 6:45pm and 9:00pm. They also offered a seaworld shuttle but I never used it as I had an iride ticket. I still had a very nice holiday just think the hotel needs a little TLC. Read less

Faulty Towers without the charm of Manuel ! We arrived to a worn out room with the Kitchen cabinet doors hanging off, a patio door that was at least 4 inches short of closing, a badly stained carpet, dirty bathroom & kitchen floor.

Faulty Towers without the charm of Manuel ! We arrived to a worn out room with the Kitchen cabinet doors hanging off, a patio door that was at least 4 inches short of closing, a badly stained carpet, dirty bathroom & kitchen floor. A minute patio with 3 dirty platic chairs. Dust on the bathroom door & a knackered shower. We mentioned this to Reception, who did nothing, so the next day I spoke to the TUI Rep. No one turned up, so I went to see the Rep the following day, to discover she'd done nothing. Finally she spoke to Reception & they sent up a nice chap who did manage to get the door to close but there was still a gap. He tried to repair the Kitchen doors but had to admit defeat. The lifts were hit & miss with one frequently out of order. The bedding was not changed in the two weeks we were there despite hanging out the 'please clean notice'. The complimentary breakfast comprised of cake, buns, tin fruit cocktail & lumpy porridge, so after a day or two, we swerved it. I wouldn't recommend this place to my worst enemy. Read less

The 2 bed suite was dated. The kitchen cupboard doors were falling off. The cutlery draw fell out so couldn't be used. We were told they would be repaired. They never were. The bathroom was dirty. The main door handle broke and had to be repaired when we were locked out of the room. We were never told and only found out later that there was… Read more

The main door handle broke and had to be repaired when we were locked out of the room. We were never told and only found out later that there was an ice machine on one level and laundry on another level. The pool was nice and I understand the other blocks may be nice. The indoor pool area and toilets and changing area was very dirty and had works going on. The gym was very old and dirty. It had 5 machines with 1 not working. The hotel is a good position however with a 25 minute walk to Universal. Right off of International Drive with easy access to the busses and restaurants. On arrival we were asked to attend a meeting about holiday ownership scheme, which we didn't attend. Read less

Is a nice hotel, I little old but overall in good condition! The hallways on the building smelled like toilet water and the rooms are so so. What makes your stay good in there is the staff, very friendly, special thanks to Thay and Miguel at the Food Court!!

One thing I wish I had done was my research before booking. Had a 2 bedroom suite with kitchen and living area. The kitchen was dated, old fashioned microwave and a kettle boiled on the cooker. This took forever to boil. Did ask about electric one but nothing. The coffee machine was okay only issue no supplies for first night so had to run down to… Read more
One thing I wish I had done was my research before booking. Had a 2 bedroom suite with kitchen and living area. The kitchen was dated, old fashioned microwave and a kettle boiled on the cooker. This took forever to boil. Did ask about electric one but nothing. The coffee machine was okay only issue no supplies for first night so had to run down to shop by bar. Heavily over priced in shop. The bathroom linked with queen room was a nightmare. Toilet kept blocking and flooded the room at 5am. Luckily none of my own things on the floor. Told numerous times, each time they’d come to fix and it went again on last morning. Cleaning wise we had to chase to get it cleaned even though sign had been out all day. We found the bar and staff best bit. Bar was good friendly and gave a social vibe. The staff were friendly, otherwise would have scored a 1. Watch the shuttles, restricted times and found Disney $12 each return for a family this would be a lot. We used Uber and Lyfts whole time there. Not budgeted unfortunately for as thought shuttles would be okay. We found most other guests we spoke to did the same. Watch taxi drivers offering to take you instead and charging double. We had heard of incidents taxi charging $40 dollars to Disney. I wouldn’t stay again I’d look more towards Disney Read less
