The hotel is in bad shape, they have NO elevator soooo leave your bags in your car, otherwise carry ALL of them to your room. The location is perfect in the center or Intl Dr.. lots of options .. but our room was never housekeep and when we asked for towels, we had to pick them up, "he was alone"....

Dirty, worn down, expensive for what it was. Poor choice of breakfast, literally toast or cereal. Has gone down hill since I first went here 7 years ago. Shuttles are okay but not great. There is a lot better nearby.

Great location, every type of store and entertainment within walking distance, nice staff, nice swimming pool, however the hallways can be a bit dirty. But overall, would go there again, especially for the pool ^^

I must admit when we booked the Floridian, I was a bit sceptical. Some of the reviews I read were bad. I was very much surprised with what I met. The morning before my flight left for Orlando, the hotel manager called to verify what time I was getting in to Orlando and gave me the number for a taxi....

As they say in the real estate industry, location, location, location. This hotel definitely has that being walking distance to Walgreens, KFC, gift shops etc, etc, etc. The hotel itself has decent continental breakfast (with pan cakes). Wifi speed is so so. Rooms and the hotel itself are livable for short term and at a reasonable rate. It is also...

It has everything near. At a walk. It has shuttle to the best amusement parks. Guides and concierge willing to help. Se habla español. Good pool for a swim. Clean rooms; I am satisfied. Also breakfast and efficient housekeeping.

This motel needs a little make over to bring it back to par. But however, it's fine for a quick over night The location is spot on. The pool was clean. The breakfast buffet was sad but perhaps we went too late at 9am. There was nothing left but cold cereal and stale bread No fruit, bagels or anything else....
