Unsafe / Not Neat

Pros: Nothing, except the room size and beds. Bathroom is poor, not neat, smoking smell came in all time, etc.
Cons: Safety and rebuild everything. Carpets look old and dirty. Awful!
Location: Location is great!
Left articles over the bed after checking out and when I went back to pick my luggage up, asked for the articles and they had disappeared.

Good for an I Drive visit

Travelocity sent me confirmation of the hotel stay, however the hotel did not have a room reserved for me. Fortunatly they had rooms available and arangrd it. We had 3 groups, and the hotel was able to put 2 of us in adjoining rooms. We were there for a concert, and spent minimal time at the hotel, so we didnt take advantage of their pool, breakfast or other aminities. It looked clean and recently painted/remodeled, however the rooms still had an older but repainted feel. The room next door had the lock/latch broken off (we found it in the bushes), there were dents in the doors, mine slammed realy hard, the bathroom door stuck. The rooms were clean enough, no bed bugs, but a few tiny dark....things/spots got my attention, however they werent bugs or eggs.

First time having to make comments about a hotel.

Pros: Absolutely nothing. It was a mess.
Cons: Everything, including the staff that was sitting outside on chairs with their feet up in such a way that I had to walk around them to go to the office
The hotel was under renovation. I get that things would be different. I went to the room and found that it was full of mold and the floors were so disgusting that I didn't want to take my shoes off. There was black smears on the walls and it was very dirty. It was bad enough that I took a video as I didn't think people would believe me. I even had stains on the pillows. I asked to be moved to another room and after a while they did so. Later on that night I walked the hotel looking for Ice and possibly a snack/soda machine. After searching all three floors I went to the office and was told "Oh no, we don't have those. We are under renovations." The desk clerk then looked back at his screen and went back to work without saying another word. Overall the hotel was a mess. Walls were painted over to hide rusting metal and the paint was so thick that it wasn't what I'd expect for International Drive. I've learned my lesson and will never stay at one of these properties again. I've never felt the need to make comments like this before but in this case I had to.

Was expecting more from a Ramada

Pros: The staff was friendly. They ran out of room card holders and were using post its to put room keys in :-)
Cons: Improve overall cleanliness and fix things that are in poor shape. My room's walls were somewhat caved in!
Location: Great location. Close to everything.
Was expecting better than this. I booked hotel to be close to Orlando Convention Centre and after two nights I booked a different hotel. I will say that the hotel was very helpful in allowing me to cancel the last four days of my trip with them. Had I been there by myself, I would have bit the bullet but I had family coming in and did not feel comfortable with them staying at this property.

Great deal for the money

The staff are wonderful. Breakfast is good, more than just coffee and some toast or muffins. Rooms are good size and clean. Love that the YMCA is included in your stay. Great perk and perfect location. Right in the middle of shopping and restaurants. 15 minutes from Universal and 20 from Disney Springs. Highly recommend for families.
