So many issues, nice lobby but down hill from there. Value for the money is the worst. Bad area as well.

The room and staff are very nice and everything was kept clean. I liked the added security of needing a key card to use the elevator. Only reason it's not five stars is the parking lot. There's not nearly enough spaces for everyone at the hotel and the second floor of the "garage" is exceptionally hard to maneuver through and only has one way in/out.

No refunds

Worst place I've ever been. Booked through Travelocity's website. Resort is made up of two buildings. The nice building (pictures that are on website) and a crappy building (where we were put). Dirty room. Filthy windows. Disgusting microwave. Light bulbs out. Malfunctioning elevator. No parking. Tried to upgrade immediately to other building but was told no room available (sorry). Can't change and no refunds. We left and didn't stay. Booked a room at Double tree on Disney property and were very satisfied. This hotel is deceiving and a trap. You think you getting to stay at a resort and suite and you get sent to the dungeon. Don't stay here!!!

A good experience

The hotel is in a great location where you can walk to stores, restaurants and also to Universal if you want to walk 30 minutes. The shuttle was packed in the morning but we decided to just use an Uber and it was great since it was 8 minutes only from the hotel. The hotel was a good experience for what we paid and they did change our towels and cleaned our room daily. We just slept there only so it was positive.

Awesome view!!

Pros: The clean room, soft towels, the view out the window.
Cons: Elevators needed to be fixed. Only one was working.
Location: The hotel is within walking distance to the shops on I-Drive.
This hotel was one of the best hotels I have stayed at in Orlando. rooms were clean, bed was comfortable, the view out our window was spectacular!! I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone. We were within walking distance to all the shops on I-Drive.

Disappointing considering it was a Ramada

Pros: Large breakfast area
Cons: Room updating and cleaniness
Experienced businesses traveler, so I've stayed in a lot of hotels. Room was dirty and worn. First room had no heat. Service man inspected it and never returned. Changed rooms at 9pm....new room was slightly cleaner and less worn.

Skip the Ramada

Pros: The lobby and pool are very nice.
Cons: More of a $59 room than a $109 room.
Location: Near all of Orlando's attractions.
The internet showed really nice rooms, however it seems the pictures were taken 10 years ago. The rooms in the South tower (the non-suites) are in need of remodel. It felt dirty and dingy.

Disappointing weekend

Pros: nothing
Cons: lots
Our toilet stopped working while we were there and they didn't try to fix it because we were leaving anyway and then the elevators were not working - only 1 working for whole south tower so everyone had to carry their bags down the steps. We couldn't get to breakfast because of the toilet and elevator nightmare and we didn't get so much as a sorry.

The room was very disappointing

Cons: Remodel the entire hotel.
The hotel staff and check-in went very smoothly. After I got in the room, it all went downhill from there. The in-wall AC unit was very loud. I had to almost max out the volume of my TV to be able to hear it. The carpet and the air in the room was uncomfortably humid. Late at night, just as I was about to go to sleep. I went into the bathroom and a cockroach ran across the sink!!! The shower head was also loose from the wall. I would not stay here again nor would I recommend it to anyone.
