Clean, good location, great amenities, super staff

Location: About a mile away from Universal Studios. They have a desk in the lobby staffed with someone to help you plan activities. They also have shuttles.
Our room was nice and clean. NO BED BUGS, too! Beds were comfortable and nicely made - extra pillows! Plenty of towels. Staff was great and quick at check in. Rooms were pretty quiet - did not hear next door neighbors - but could hear room doors opening and closing from our room door (wish the room doors were better sound insulated - but acceptable). Room had very clean fridge, microwave, coffee maker, and hair drier. Tub and bathroom spic and span. Updated shower easy to get to perfect temp and had wonderful pressure. Tub was bubble bath ready - nice soaking depth. Pool was not heated, but was still wonderful and clean and big. Pool towels provided, too. Pool is supposed to close at 10pm, but we swam until almost 11pm, and no one chased us out. There is a great bar (bartender made our kids shirley temples to go:). There are wonderful restaurants in the lobby. Also, check your Orlando coupon books if you stay here - there are coupons for $1 off the $7.95 all you can eat breakfast buffet (can be used for everyone in your party - better deals if your kids are 9 or under). There is laundry, a great exercise room, an expansive arcade with toy cranes++, a great mini mart with nice selection of food, tourist items like shirts and cups, and drinks - no need to drive to a quickie mart. The staff was so interactive and friendly. You didn't have to look for help, they were always right there coming to you. Parking was good, too. So pleased with this hotel. Glad I trusted the reviews.

After a day at Universal

Pros: Staff, location, price, breakfast
Cons: Water pressure in the shower, include juice with breakfast buffet
Location: Close to Universal, Wet & Wild, all attractions and restaurants on International Drive.
The Rosen Inn is very convenient to Universal Studios Orlando, a 7 min ride. The hotel staff was extremely pleasant and very helpful. There was an information desk in the lobby and the person working there was friendly and knowledgeable. The room was clean and quiet. The only drawback was the low water pressure in the shower. The Breakfast buffet in the morning was great and under $10. Lots of choices and good service. There is also an outdoor pool and patio. I would definitely recommend the Rosen for families visiting Orlando; convenient, low price and good location on International Dr. We spent a long day at Universal and were pleased with the accommodations.

Would stay here again!

Decently priced and renovated rooms were clean. Stayed for 2 nights, and was perfect for the short trip. Location was great and only about a mile from universal. Rollaway bed cost $16. Staff were very friendly and helpful. I read some bad reviews, but I didn't have any issues at all with this hotel and would stay here again. I highly recommend Cafe Mineiro across the street!

Exactly what I was looking for!

Pros: I found my room to be clean and neat each night.
Cons: Nothing, if you want something that isn't pricey, but cleaner and a little more upscale than please feel free to check this hotel out.
The staff is friendly and the hotel is very close to Universal. There is a bus that picks you up from the hotel and takes you to Universal and that same bus will take you back to the hotel. If you stay later you can easily get a taxi back to the hotel for less than $10 which isn't bad.
