Reviewer's Name:

Austin Rice

Reviewer's Email Address:

wildnet22@aol.com

Date(s) of Stay:

October 16-18, 1998

Location:

2 blocks east of I-4 at the intersection of Sand Lake Road and Universal Blvd. About two blocks to International Drive, Sea World, lots of restaurants, 1 mile to Universal Studios and 10 miles to WDW.

Ease of WDW Park Access:

Shuttle service to MK 3 times per day, pick up 3 times at MK (Better check with hotel though because I didn't use the shuttle service, just drove). About a 20 to 25 minute drive to WDW via car.

Address:

6101 Sand Lake Road

Phone Number:

(407) 363-7886

Facility Type:

Motel, 318 rooms, 4 stories, exterior corridors

Accommodation Used:

Standard Room, King Bed

Accommodations Review:

Our room was very nice with nice clean furniture, clean bathroom, cable tv with in-room movie channel, desk with modem connection, microwave and refrigerator, and a sofa which turned into a bed. The only complaint I had was that the room and bathroom was very small and congested, can't fit more than 4 people and then it would really be congested. If you stay here with more than 4, get connecting rooms.

Rate/Night (for your stay):

$59.40/night for 1 ADULT, more for 2 and was during off-season.

# of Restaurants/Lounges:

none, just a free continental breakfast in the morning.

Restaurant/Lounge Review:

n/a

Activities/Facilities Available:

Multi-Purpose Room, Gift Shop, Tourists Information and Discounts desk, Pool and Kiddie Pool, Playground, Game Room (If you can call it that), Exercise Room, and Laundry Services.

Pool Description/Comments:

Just a normal pool, doesn't have a slide or is themed or anything like that. The pool was a rectangle formation with lots of lawn chair and tables around it and is VERY BIG (needs to be for all the rooms). Kiddie pool was VERY SMALL with a little water fountain and a circle formation and next to main pool. Towels were also provided in the room or by calling maintenance and asking for some.

Amenities Provided:

Hairdryer, Microwave (extra charge) Refrigerator (extra charge), Towels/Supplies, Coin Laundry, In-Room Safe (extra charge), NO Pets, Concierge, Theme Shuttle Service (complimentary), Cable TV, Handicapped Accessible Room, Non-Smoking Rooms Available, Smoke Detectors, Fire Sprinklers.

Other Comments:

This was a very nice hotel for the rate that we got and that we only need it for 2 nights until we could get into Port Orleans. We were expecting a run down hotel but got a only 2 year old hotel with a great staff, very clean rooms, and nice but limited amenities. The only bad thing about it was that it was far away from WDW, didn't like the drive and congestion in the area, shuttle service was not as frequent, and that I would not stay here again only because of that. But if you need just a couple of nights with just a place to come back to and need to stay in the I-Drive area, I would certainly suggest it.
