We came in to a dirty, run down room. I was very uncomfortable with the look of this place. Very, very old and there was trash left all over the floor by the previous occupants. Very thin covers, very few cable channels. Hardly any hot water. We were very unhappy with our stay.

To start with upon check in we were given the key to an already occupied room. It opened the door and we were able to clearly see shopping bags, groceries, etc ( safety concern). Second, in two occasions we dealt with small roaches in the sink. Finally, the walls are made out of paper because we were able to clearly hear our next door neighbors ALL night. Very disappointed.

Charged an extra $11.00 per room as “resort fee” locally, after already paying Expedia $6.64 property fee!

I am sorry for any misunderstanding but this fee is mentioned on website as total cost of room and is not an extra charge.

The room smelled straight up like smoke. Ridiculously over priced for what we got

Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry you did't get a chance to enjoy the mini golf and workout room, we do have them.

Just don't.

Pros: Nothing.
Cons: Get a bulldozer.
Location: Location was fine.
The carpet was wet from humidity, and the smell was bad (mildew?). The beds: one full and one twin (not two queens). The ceiling has water stains. The bathroom has mold, and although the shower walls were new, the tub had a HUGE chip in its floor. Not even the door stopper on the bathroom wall was in working order. The cabinet housing the fridge was missing its door. There were no accessible elevators from the outside to carry large suitcases. The wallpaper "border" near the ceiling was coming off the wall. This is the kind of room you need if you're just looking for someplace to sleep off a night of drinking.

Terrible

Only stayed one night.The shower didn’t work. We told the front desk two times and twice they said someone will be right up. No one ever came! They didn’t allow us to switch rooms. They just kept saying the are sending someone to fix it. There were black curly hairs all over the bathroom. The water from the shower just kept running all night and didn’t stop but we couldn’t get it to turn on fully to be able to take a showe. The bathroom door got stuck and had to pull hard to get out. When we checked out we spoke to a manager about the problems and he gave us only a $10 credit for the trouble! Terrible overall! We will never stay there again.

Very clean and spacious. Hotel staff very nice.

I had a really nice stay at this hotel. The staff is really friendly. The rooms were very spacious with coffee makers in them. I love the game room and the shuttles to the theme parks. I love the omelet bar in the breakfast buffet.
