The location for International Drive is 2nd to none, I trolley and Lynx stop directly outside the main gate. Lot's of places to eat well within 5 minutes walk, room's were kept very clean and staff were super helpful. Really nice pools and facility's, we'll being staying here next time for sure. The only down side was that the bar was closed Monday and Tuesday nights, we like to sit down and have a drink after a hard day at the parks. Highly recommended, thank you to all the staff for all their hard work.

Very affordable hotel where you went with low expectations.
The matter went a little into the notebook when the gatekeeper initially did not intend to let us in. However, the room was obtained effortlessly and a little scared that what is known when there was quite a lot of people and a big complex.
The large room, large private beds, good pillows and efficient fridge surprised. The room also had efficient air conditioning and was clean in every way. The only disgusting thing was the bathtub shower mat and that too could be moved aside. There was a paper front door in the room, but the surprise was that the room was quiet.
There are plenty of parking spaces, car can be reached nearby.
The pool area was large and so surprisingly comfortable. Sheltered area and pretty good sun loungers.
The hotel shop serves basic necessities and a cold drink.
The location of the hotel is good. Theme parks, restaurants and shopping are close by.
Breakfast at the hotel was tested once. Versatile, functional and good value for money.
I would definitely recommend this hotel. Really good value for money.
Just what we needed

For the price, this hotel is amazing. The location, right on International Drive was definitely our favourite thing about it! It is literally the middle of everything, you are spoilt for choice with places to eat (next door to the biggest McDonald's in the world which my son loved!) or things to do (Madame Tussaud's and Ripley's Believe it or not are within walking distance). When in Orlando, all you really want from your hotel is cleanliness, comfort and friendly staff, and that's exactly what this place is. It's not luxury, but it doesn't need to be, it ticks all the boxes. Also has a lovely pool area, which is clean and never short of sun loungers and a nice little convenience store on site which sells everything you could possibly need. We didn't eat on site so I can't comment about that, I honestly don't have anything negative to say, this hotel made our first time in Orlando a very memorable one. I would highly recommend this hotel.
Great hotel if you’re a smoker

We’ve stayed at this hotel 5 times over the years, but sadly, this visit will be our last.
I want to start by saying that the hotel staff are all brilliant. Particular shoutouts to Meena on Reception (very caring and eager to help), and Miss Sandy in the breakfast room (a real sweetie).
Every visit we’ve had, we’ve messaged the hotel ahead of time, and requested a quiet top floor room in the 2000 or 3000 building - and it’s always been honoured upon check in.
The pools are great, the breakfast is delicious (loved the baked beans), the communal areas are kept clean, and there’s plenty of free parking available. Whilst the rooms are of an older style, they’re well appointed (a safe, iron, ironing board etc), offer free WiFi and all with no resort fees. Security officers man the two entrances 24/7, so it feels very safe too.
The room we were allocated absolutely stank of cigarette smoke upon our arrival, and we assumed that this was because the previous occupants had been smoking inside. Either way, it’s not comfortable for me, as I’m a severe Asthmatic.
Next morning, the 6th floor Supervisor was doing her rounds, and as the room still smelt of cigarette smoke, we called her in. She said that so many people smoke on the property (including in the rooms) - but she can only report them when she actually sees evidence of it.
We went to breakfast, and then out for a walk. When we got back, there was an ant infestation, and the room still stank of cigarettes.
The lady on reception re-allocated our room for us, and we had to pack up and move all of our belongings.
Unfortunately, the second room also stank of cigarettes / cannabis upon our return late that evening, and we noticed that it was worse when we had our bathroom light (fan) on. One of the beds (nearest the window) had a lumpy mattress, but it wasn’t too far gone.
We spoke to reception again two more times, but the only option that Meena could give, was to re-allocate our room again. There would obviously be no guarantee that another room would be free of smoke smells - and as I’m a very light sleeper, the location (6th floor of the 3000 building) is equally as important.
I appreciate that this is not entirely the hotel’s fault, but the selfishness of smokers has totally impacted our week away.
One of the adjoining rooms was not inspected during their stay (because the ‘Room Occupied’ sign was on their door 24/7) - but both sides seemed to smoke, and be in their rooms most of the day.
Maybe the Rosen could offer segregated smoking rooms, as standing on the balcony seems too much trouble for some?

First timers. Check in was pain free - was missing a pull up bed was sorting with 15 mins! Staff were friendly the hotel is clean and tidy - we’ve booked to return next year!
Only issue is would be nice to have somewhere to dry swim clothes - an aired or something we put them over hanging balcony and was asked remove, other ppl continued but we left them in the bathroom.
