College Visit

Pros: Free WiFi. Quiet. Close to the location of my visit. Clean.
Cons: I did not need the refrigerator but it did not work. It was set to max but did not cool hardly at all. The individual AC was noisy and drafty.
Location: UCF...what's to say?
The hotel room and facilities were not a hindrance to my visit.

Decent place close to UCF

We were only staying one night, visiting with my daughter and her fiance' who live in the area. Basically we just needed a place to sleep and shower, and my husband and I are not super picky. As long as it is clean and comfortable, we are good to go. Thought we might take advantage of the breakfast, but ended up sleeping too late. The room and bathroom was spacious and clean, as were the linens and towels. Bed (king) was comfy too. I have no complaints and would definitely stay there again, as well as recommend it to anyone who needs accommodations when visiting UCF or the surrounding area.

Completely average middle of the road hotel

Pros: The location was convenient.
Cons: The hotel could definitely use some updating.
Location: On a positive note, the hotel was very close to the UCF Arena.
The La Quinta at UCF has seen better days. Carpets were stained and bleached in some places and hallways were abnormally warm and smelled funny. The hotel itself smelled of dogs and I saw at least three during my overnight visit, I have nothing against pets but had I known in advance, I would have chosen a different hotel. I don't mind pets but I don't want the hotel I chose to smell like them. You can definitely tell by the appearance that the hotel has seen it's fair share of parties and college students. The room had two double beds and was clean enough but we had to ask for more towels as we were only given three even though we had indicated that 4 people would be staying in the room. I have stayed at various La Quinta's in the Orlando area and most are nicer. The room and hotel served the purpose although I probably would have switched hotels if I were staying more than one night.

Can't beat the convenience and value

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
The price and close proximity to UCF make this a great choice. Add in free wireless and breakfast and it becomes a no-brainer.

Older hotel in need of renovation

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet, Quiet
Cons: Nothing close, needs renovation, needs stronger wifi signal
I stayed on the first floor. The carpet was dated, the doors to the bathroom didn't shut, and the WiFi signal was weak and intermittent. There were other minor issues consistent with a hotel in need of renovation. However, the beds were comfortable, the front desk was friendly, and the continental breakfast wasn't bad. The exterior sitting areas and pool area was nice, but parking lot lighting was too dim.

Good place for visiting eastern Orlando

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet, Quiet
This hotel seemed the most economical in the eastern part of Orlando near the University of Central Florida and the industrial park of Research Parkway. It was a good value. The room was clean and pleasant, the bed was comfortable, the bathroom typical of a good hotel. It is far enough away from Disney and Universal that probably you wouldn't want to stay here if that was your destination, probably a good 40 minute drive to Disney I think, a little less to Universal. The breakfast is OK; nothing too wonderful, sort of a typical hard boiled egg, cereal, toast and waffle thing. Staff was very nice. HELPFUL TIP: I had forgotten the power cord for my computer and they had a box of abandoned computer and phone charger cords at the front desk. They let me have a couple that i was able to cannibalize to make a workable substitute for my original system. This may be a helpful thing to know if you are stuck at 2 AM with no power supply.
