Cheap and clean - good value
We stayed at this hotel a couple of years ago, before the renovations. The pool was noticeably cleaner than last time. It is a basic hotel with basic facilities, but you don't go to Orlando to stay in the hotel room. The air con is really noisy, so we tended to turn it off when we were in the room. Universal is a genuine 10 minute walk from the hotel, so you save quite a bit on parking - it's not much further than the far reaches of the parking lots! Breakfast is basic but you take as much as you want. There are several restaurants nearby with full breakfast buffets for $3.99 if you want more.

Orlando Metropolitan Express
At the Skoosh rate, we would recommend it for those seeking a cheap stay on International Drive in Orlando. We would NOT recommend it at the published room rate. Good points: Breakfast room is OK though very crowded at peak times; breakfast fare is OK, if simple and uninspired. Our room (2 double beds) was large enough for the two of us and had good, basic amenities (ironing board, hair dryer). Bad points: The A/C, although quiet enough, constantly cycled off/on even though it never got the room as cool as we wanted; housekeeping left a lot to be desired - we ran out of TP twice and we believe the floor wasn't swept all week; athough the carpets, paint and upholstery were fresh, the bathroom showed obvious signs that it was dressing over top of old infrastructure; we shared the room with 2 millipedes, an earwig and a worm.

We liked the convenient location
It certainly was better than I expected for the money I paid. The front desk (specially Lina) was very friendly and helpfull. Hosekeeping need to improve. I personally think that I coudlnot have found any better familiar enviroment in Orlando.

This hotel is very good value for money and centrally located. The continental breakfast saves time and money in the morning. I have stayed at this hotel 3 times now!

Best hotel ever!!
I loved this hotel. We were in orlando last week during the tropical storm and had a great time. The room was just perfect and just what we needed! I don't know if the rooms always have a fridge and microwave or we just got upgraded to that room because it was the slow season (late august/sept). The king bed was so comfortable, we hated getting home and using our old one. We were also right beside the pool and the breakfast was just what we were looking for because neither of us are big eaters. They had bagels, muffins, toast, cereals, juices etc. The staff was also really friendly and they had an area at the reception which helped with tickets to the parks and other questions about the orlando area. They adviced for people to buy the tickets when there because they could offer them at discounted prices

Centrally placed, yet quiet
Excellent hotel as a base for visit to one of Orlando's theme parks. We stayed there with two boys (6 and 14) and enjoyed the pool area in the afternoons. The breakfast included is not overwhelming, but fine if one can live with toast/bagels, cereals and fruit.

We booked for 2 days but stayed 7 days. Good rooms, clean and everything you need is present. Breakfast is good and sufficient. Bread, sandwich filling, coffee/tea, juices, milk, fruit and cornflakes and a sweet bread roll. Clean swimming pool and towels are ready for you. In short, for the price you pay, it is a very good motel. The area is also nice because you can go to various restaurants on foot.
