Better than ok...

Pros: Good location, quiet, nice staff, good rooms
Cons: The pool and the AC.
Location: Far enough away from central Orlando that things are more quiet, but close enough to all of the major theme parks that getting there isn't a hassle.
...whatever that may mean. Overall this was a nicer hotel. Breakfast was $13, which was too expensive considering you could get the same thing from the Denny's two blocks away for $6. The room was nice, and all staff was great. For my stay, however, the pool heater was broken and it was pretty cool outside so I didn't dare enter. Aside from the bed being hard, I found it hard to sleep because the AC fan was very rattly, and during my second night it sounded like a belt broke so it was squealing pretty loud. Those two things aside, which I'm sure will be fixed soon, I'd stay again.

Staff could care less your there

The staff seemed to be bothered by the guests. The details of the observed slights are irrelevant. Teach your staff to simpley look at thier customers and apprreacate that they have chosen to stay are thier esablishment. This hotel was clean however, so is the Hampton Inn, who treats you like they are happy you are there.....you might win some but you just lost yourself one.

The hotel is very good

Pros: Free Internet, Quiet
I think this hotel is very good. I order the king bedroom and I feel very comfortable living there. I strongly suggest this hotel although there are no restaurant around. Btw, the breakfast is expensive and the swimming pool is very awesome.

Comfortable, Affordable, Good Location

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
We were in Orlando for a conference and the HGI was a great place for a few nights rest and relaxation when we weren't in sessions. The affordability and comfort were a plus. We liked that we were only 2 miles from a major shopping/entertainment center. The only negative would have been the $6.00 continental breakfast, but the servers for it were very helpful.
