1st & foremost, owners should be ashamed for charging a resort fee. The least they could do is use it for repair or replace or the so called "breakfast", which is nothing. Wifi is hit or miss, bathroom doors falling off, & the noise-my goodness the noise!! A dump truck comes every day at approximately 4:30am. No kidding. There are...

I found a low cost through an app for a dirt cheap price and stayed a few nights. However, paying anything over $27 is not worth it. The place is not very nice, the service is terrible, and the checkin' is like a pawn shop. They have a sign that has a list of penalties as if you are already...

This hotel definitely needs an upgrade but for the price we paid its expected. They also charge you a refundable $100 that was hidden towards the bottom of the booking page. It should really be up where it shows you the price of the hotel. As for the appearance of the room the sheets had stains, some of the bed...

This is my family's umpteen visit to Orlando and our third stay at Heart of I-Drive. This trip was a little different - Angie and Johanna went above and beyond the call to give me a pleasant and comfortable stay. The room and beds were comfortable as per usual. The building could use some upgrades, but I'm sure it will...

My family and I stayed one night after a difficult check-in, due to a language barrier. With a surprise $100 security deposit, that was not mentioned when AARP Expedia booked the hotel. There was a need for an elevator to the room on the 2nd floor, having had a 79 year old relative with us. No one was available to...

The only good thing is the location,price and clean pool. But this hotel needs a urgent update!! Limited continental breakfast, poor housekeeping service, small and uncomfortable lobby, little soap (I buy a bigger soap in the pharmacy) thin,hard and old towels, the cable signal lost a several times, the phone and the iron of my room never work. This is...

We are from Florida and stay in Orlando several times a year. This hotel was close proximity to Universal Studios and was inexpensive which is a reason we picked it. I'm not too picky about nice amenities when I stay here as I'm only interested in a clean, quiet place to sleep after a fun day in the parks. This...
