They didn’t refund deposit and provide a terrible service. It is the worst hotel I have ever ordered. They charged deposit $153 and never refund to account. Their service is also toooo bad. I called them for half year. They never care about my complain. Please never try this hotel any more.

Very Bad experience! First of all, I got bites by bedbugs all over my body. Secondly, the room smelled really bad and caused me a bad headache. In addition, the breakfast is horrible, and you had to ask for a piece of bread.

Well, the hotel is at International Drive, but that´s pretty much its only asset: all the rest is just awful! Forget the pool and the breakfast. Be careful at the staircase, really filthy, leave in the earlymorning and come back only to go straight to bed! And don´t make any prior reservations: it´s more expensive that booking at the counter!

There is a $9 resort fee per day, the lobby was dirty, the free continental breakfast was 2 pieces of toast per person (no joke), the toilet was broken in the room and not fixed, the $100 deposit in cash is rediculous, and the employees were terrible.

STOLEN LUGGAGE. SHADY STAFF!! Do NOT stay here!!! The minute we walked in on our first night of vacation we felt an extremely weird vibe. Both receptionists there made no eye contact, no smiling, NOTHING. He kept adding charges and not explaining to me what they were for. As we went to our room on the second floor, the eerie...

You blamed us for your stolen bag? We were not there when you walked into your room. Our responsibility is not to make sure you close your door. That's at your will. We are very sorry for what happened to you but you guys left the door open with the luggages there, not us. There are no hidden fees. All...

We left in the morning to go to the parks and when came back to the hotel room, we noticed our wallet was missing. We only had purr international documents in it and no money. The wallet itself was worthy about $100. We complained to the front desk, but nothing could be done as no management was available. We waited...

Good evening, We are sad to hear about the guests experience. As I expressed to the translator; since the persons that checked in do not speak any English. WE ARE A SAFE HOTEL; the staff here DOES NOT STEAL. The wallet was found in the mini fridge in the room (NOTHING WAS MISSING / NOTHING TAKING). We've had many of...
