Stayed after flying into Orlando-Sanford late at night and not wanting to drive 2 hours to get home. I believe the front desk persons name was John. He was very pleasant and attentive. He walked down to exchange my key when it did not work and changed the battery in smoke detector as it was beeping. The room was clean... More

We thought that some folks were a little harsh on here with this hotel. They have done a nice job of renovating the rooms, as ours was brand new. The only thing I had on the room, and gave them feedback on, was to replace the electrical outlets as they were worn and some wouldn't keep the plug in. The... More

We found this place online and since it was listed as a hotel and close to the airport we decided to try it out. We arrived late at night and the place had a lot of weird people but since we were already there we decided to stay. Checking in was really strange since it through a bullet proof window,... More

Room is very clean. The AC works fine. The bathroom is very clean too. We used this place because we have to wait for our flight at the airport. The only cons is that the TV doesn't have a HDMI port to connect external devices. In overall, it's very great.

My family stayed here for just one night, in order to be close to the airport. 2.5 stars would be more accurate, as I didn't expect much and this place has some definite issues but I didn't feel the need to pack up and go. We stayed here after being in FL for a week. The pros: Price and convenience.... More

I can't say that it was sketchy because from the outside it appeared fine. I thought it was a hotel but guess I didn't do my thorough research. Learned it was a motel and there is several apartment buildings across the way. Walked into the room and the smell of must was over powering. I tried to stay, I really... More

We have traveled ALL over Florida. (Almost every weekend t/o the year) This was my worst ever experience!!

Staff was pleasant. Maid did wonderful job. We didn't think we'd get maid service because we were just staying 2 nights, but was delighted to come back to cleaned room. She picked up items, she didn't have to. It was nice surprise.
