    The location was excellent, right next to the Universal complex.

    The cost of the room was low, but I had still expected more of it. The complimentary breakfast was a bit of a disappointment as well.

    Good location. Not too far from anything, more in the center. I wanted to go to Universal but wound up going to Disney Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios (ticket price was better). Went to Prime Outlets (Inter. Blvd). All in all better than staying in Kissimee for the price. Good place for families with kid. She enjoyed it (hotel). Near places to eat too and breakfast in the AM was good. Booked.net rate was a little less than AAA rate. So fair $$.

    Well the fridge/microwave setup was not "the" best and no kitchen area (sink) but it (for me having been on the road for work) was ok and fine with family. Not really have anything negative to say about the place except security was well non-existent for car/truck in the parking lot. I did not notice the signs until the day we were going to leave (will see in the pictures if I get to post any).

    Unfortunately, the only thing I liked about the hotel was the pool.

    They advertised free airport shuttle. When we called from the airport, they said they didn't have it at this location. It cost us $100 Round- trip for a cab. They advertised free shuttle to Universal Studios. They had only 2 leaving the hotel (7 & 7:30am) & 2 reurning at nite. (9:45 & 10:45pm) They advertised hot breakfast. Shuttle left as breakfast began. Food was subpar. Never more than one counter staff member on duty at any time, resulting in long waits & long time to answer phones. We ended up walking most of the time. At one point, we asked staff to call cab to go to restaurant for special BDay dinner. She called a driver she knew, who charged twice ($15) what a driver we found charged for the ride back. The room stunk so bad the first nite, I slept in the lobby. Turns out trash left in room next to us turned rancid & got into air ducts. They gave us a different room w/o ever comping a thing. Exercise room had 4 pieces of equipment. Hot tub was inside; pool was outside. Had never stayed at a Wyndham property before & would not do so again. (Hospitality people in area told us they never knew there were hotels in Orlando that didn't offer all basic services!) Sadly for us, we'd flown out there to celebrate Mom/Dtr BDays & wished we'd stayed home instead. We got stranded overnite by inclement weather at airport & immediately booked at the nearest Marriott. Learned our lesson! And plan to share our experience w/any one willing to listen, to keep others from being so hugely disappointed & feeling so "ripped off!"

    I liked the cleanliness of the room, continental breakfast, pool, whirlpool, fitness center, and shuttle to/from Universal Studios.

    I didn't like the bathtub because it was clogged and took a long time to drain; I am sure it was a quick fix. I reported it to the desk clerk when I checked out. Really, this was very minor. I thought the hotel was outstanding!!

    Room was clean, furnishings good.

    breakfast was okay. clock did not work. TV controller did not work but maintenance got new batteries.

    The hotel turned into a zoo at night. Loud music blaring, doors slamming, definitely a few parties were going. It my stay unenjoyable.

    Cleaning room, include a little refrigerator and a microwave. Excellent location very near to Uniervsal Studio. Highly recommended

    Great location and pleasant rooms.

    Hot waffles are great but breakfasts need more and healthi er options. Some Staff a little unsmiling. Breakfast area cramped.

  • Family with children

    The hotel exceeded my expectations! The room was nice, clean and comfortable. We had an issue with the AC the first night, but it was immediately taken care of. The breakfast was very good, with many choices. It was a relief to go back to a nice hotel room after spending the day at the parks.

    We couldn't have chosen a better location for our visit to universal. The breakfast in the morning was excellent for a quick getaway to the parks. On our return to our room in the evening the house keeping staff had left our room in Perfect order.
