Don‘t go to a connecting room

Quite new hotel. But the so called connecting rooms are terrible.

Nice hotel, rooms could do with an update

The hotel was great as it was within walking distance to restaurants and takeaways as well as a free shuttle to Universal studios and free parking on site. The room we stayed in could have done with an update ie the bathroom door could have been replaced as it was broken along the bottom, a fresh coat of paint etc. Overall tho would stay again

Pros: Clean and comfortable, and good value
Cons: Not really
Location: Accessible
Facilities: Good, Modern; Value: Affordable; Service: Professional, Friendly, Courteous; Cleanliness: Spick and span, Pleasant; Yours questions re location were largely irrelevant, because for Orlando you really need a car to get anywhere
