As you chose to post this review anonymously we are not able to verify if your review was intended for our hotel or another hotel you may have stayed at during your travels. It is always unfortunate when a spider decides to enter anyone's home whether residential or commercial.

The people who work here are very polite, but they seemed terrified to do anything. Every request was met with no. I had two more nights in Orlando and chose to switch hotels. Will absolutely never stay here or recommend to anyone. Restaurant was dirty - food quality poor. My room was run down and not cleaned well. Very bad smell from my heater. Shower curtain all torn up. The lady who sells coffee was nice though.
