This was actually a Days Inn hotel, and it was an EXCELLENT value. Yes, the bathroom ceiling had peeling paint and there were chips in the bathtub and some "ghost ants" in the room (they were so small, I don't think any hotel room would be able to keep them out), but the important things were there -- mattresses were nice and firm and large (queen size). There was ample hot water and excellent service (from check-in to daily maid service). And it was a 15 minute walk from Universal Studios.

I think the hostel is good with a good location, good breakfast and a very good shuttle service. This service pick you up and goes to the main amusement parks in Orlando. For me the only problem in this service it is the time; the shuttle goes out to the parks 40 min after the park opened.

Times for the Shuttle to Disneyworld are not good. To early in the morning and in the evening. Also just two pick up times. Hotelroom smelled bad, like molt

Broken shower curtain. Rusty locker which was never used was charged $2.25 per day and was told as mandatory. The money paid to AAE was a commission and was not deducted in the total cost. Breakfast was horrible and pathetic. Is it United Sates or Somalia ?

Special thanks to Philipe (I don't remember the right spelling), a very cool brazilian guy who works at the breakfast room.

Even for a cheap place this is overrated. Beds felt and looked dirty, room was always damp to the point where all of our clothes felt damp. The pool looked ok but never bothered trying. The guy at the ticket desk organised a hire car for us but lied about the type of car and the additional charges. Other staff were nice but cannot make up for this cheap motel. Probably the worst Days Inn going around.

I liked the facilities, the free shuttel to Disney and the breakfast was alright too - overall fair value for the money. Just the cleanliness in our room was very poor - had hair and stuff on our sheets, little bugs (like ants and stuff) on pillows and sink. Stuff was nice. Don't know if I would return because of the cleanliness...

Literally a 15 min walk from Universal Studios, but not very much else. The complimentary breakfast is fine, but nothing special. Can also be a bit of a hassle if you need to access the internet, as the wifi is only available in the lobby. For the price paid though, this place does the job!

It wasn't really a hostel. It was a nice motel.

It's a Days Inn, you get the picture. Everything was A-OK apart from the facilities. You can't run a hotel/hostel/motel without full WIFI access anymore. It just isn't on. In this case there is quite good free WIFI but you can only get on it in the lobby, which isn't good enough. But aside from that it's a decent place, cheap and a quick walk to Universal Studios which is really what we all go to Orlando for right? The attached Indian restaurant is to die for.

If you are going to Universal - stay here! It is an easy walk away. The staff are amazing and very hard working. The wifi DOES NOT work in the rooms which is very annoying and results in awkward foyer interneting. Good value for money but don't expect a hotel.

우선 구글맵지도가 틀려요. 그리고 컵라면 먹으려고 핫워터 달라고했더니 수도꼭지 뜨거운물을 받아줘서 바삭바삭한 컵라면을 먹었어요. 마지막으로 디즈니랜드에서 돌아올때 셔틀버스 6시꺼 타려고왔는데 가버려서 4시간 기다렸다가 10시 차 타고 돌아왔어요 추워죽을뻔했어요 6시껀 일찍가고 10시껀 늦게옴. 다른방법으로 돌아오려고했으나 2시간 가량 고생만하고 공공버스는 다 끊기고 아무튼 힘들었어요

Close to Universal studios, fairly clean rooms. Great pool and close to a couple of restaurants. Good value for money.

This is just a regular days inn hotel, but here at least you can book it for a better price.

Great place if you are going to universal Studios close walk and free shuttle bus to Disney world which is amazing for I only had to catch 1 taxi back which will cost around $50 plus tip for I wanted to stay for the fireworks on Halloween :) the only thing I didn't like I had no wifi in my room but other that it was a great place to stay
