"Excellent Location close to Universal Orlando"
TripAdvisor user rating 2 out of 5
Reviewed December 11, 2018 NEW
This hotel is good value for it's location, however, you get what you pay for. The housekeeping service is terrible and I had to contact the front desk more than once to complain. The bus service in the afternoon/evening is excellent but to book for the morning you need to endure a hard sell on time shares, if you refuse the pitch the bus is apparently full.

We stayed here for our honeymoon! The staff was amazing and caring. The rooms have a spectacular view at night and the hotel is locating near everything. The shuttle is free and runs all day up to midnight. We loved every part of our stay!

"Water Supply Stopped in the Midst of Shower"
TripAdvisor user rating 2 out of 5
Reviewed December 09, 2018 NEW
This hotel provided good service at check in but the water supply stopped at approximately 9pm when I was in the midst of a shower. Called the hotel reception and they said that they were fixing the tap because of a leak. I understand that the leak might have been crucial but it was also pretty irresponsible of them to switch off the water supply in the evening like this, and that they don’t have a spare water tank or alternative supply.

Everything about this hotel was average. It looked nice on the internet. My child got food poisoning after eating from their restaurant. Construction noise every morning was interesting. This was an undesirable experience, however I am now educated on what do to in the future.
