The MOTEL is in an ok location. Not worth $100. The staff was ok. If it's last minute and you know you want spend a large amount of time in the room, then it'll do. But, if you have several options, this shouldn't be one of them.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Don't stay here"
The room was gross, the walls were peeling, the TV didn't work properly, the shower was more like a sprinkler, this property needs a serious makeover! Do not stay here!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to all the attractions"
It was a okay stay, I wouldn't stay there again, we had to jump through hoops to get towels and wash rags and toilet paper.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Average hotel with no frills"
Ok if you are needing a place to sleep but not much more than that. Beds are kind of hard in my opinion as well as lumpy and sag towards the middle. Internet is not great and if there is a problem you have to call an 800 number to fix it yourself. Location is somewhat with in walking distance but with all the walking you do in the park you may want […] to forgo walking to universal. Other hotels are nicer looking than this one and most likely closer to universal. Lots of close by souvineer shops and other fun little shopping places. Again ok if u don't plan on doing much at the hotel other than sleep. Breakfast is pretty much pointless because their isn't much in the line of food except those pinwheels. Other than that not much to chose from Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Room was clean and in perfect location for activites housekeeping was always on schedule and professionalGenuine Expedia guest review
TV didn't work. Telephone didn't have dial tone. Dirty Room. Yuck. Although I paid the full price (quoted on Expedia) through Expedia when I made the reservation, they still made me pay a $4.96 resort fee at check-in. What a joke. I am amazed expedia (or any other) interent booking service would put this motel on their website, since it also reflects […] them. The front desk personel were friendly. FYI, I usually never rate rooms or give feedback, but felt like this motel was so aweful that I should forewarn you. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The front desk staff was OK. The cleanign staff was OK...even the Continental breakfast was OK.... But the only thing that stood out was that I had to shower one body part at a time, and then rince it before the soap could dry. That sounds odd doesn't it? Well the water pressure was below that of any other time in my life where I tried to take a shower.... […] the bath tub pressure was OK, but when I flipped it over to the showerhead barely any pressure was transfered. And it wasn't because it was a Shower-miser water-saving head. When I mentioned it to the staff they were non-pulsed, so I surmise it is more than just the one room. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Good choice for the price"
Bed very comfort and room is clean.Good choice for the price.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not a hotel I will visit again."
The price was great, but when we arrived from the parks tired, and wanting a nice shower, we had no hot water, no one tried to accommodate us, I traveled with two eldery, and a child.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel/motel charges "resort fees" for amenities that are not available. They explain the "resort fees" are due to their location on International Drive. If the room is booked through a third party, it appears they put you in Building C which is closest to the freeway. Don't expect a quiet night. They also charge $15.00 an hour to use the internet. […] At least when the reception on your TV doesn't work they come to fix it. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Hotel for Fun"
just for fun near everywhere cheap hotel better for short stayGenuine Expedia guest review
This place has some definite age to it with few amenities. If you are looking for a cheap place to stay, then this is the hotel for you. If you need or expect to find a lot of extras, stay some place else.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"very budget, not so nice i wouldnt go back"
room was small, and not so nice...................... needs upgrades, but right by the beach. if i was manager i would do renovations.............. great location, not so nice area also break fast was not so nice.Genuine Expedia guest review
This was the second time here and will come back if I need to. The continental breakfast could be better.Genuine Expedia guest review
I stayed there befor and I like the location. Close to the attractions, and downtown.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
HJ is not highly recommend for looks but the location is great. They need a serious upgrade. I asked for a late check-out, I was told 11am was the latest. Most hotels allow you to check out at 12pm.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"was close to Universal."
The employees were nice and helpfull. The room was nice, just needed a little maintenace in the bathroom. The breackfast was disappointing.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"you get what you pay for"
They charge a resort fee that was not covered when I made the reservation $4.96 a night. What a joke resort not even close. It is good for sleeping there and that is it. Free contanental breakfast they should pay you to eat it. The food was terrible and no selection. Bread, cereal, and oranges and roll if you can get it This is an example you get what […] you pay for and that wasn't very good Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Dreadful Experience, Will never recommend it"
We booked Howard Johnson International Drive ( Orlando ) thinking we would experience the same level of customer service we have received in other hotels of this same chain. But this was not nearly true, we had the worst experience ever. Since we checked in we realized that there was a deck where we could smoke and chat, we asked the frontdesk about […] the rules for the use of the deck and they said that as far we were not being loud,we could stay there all night, however the night auditor "Paul" didn't like this idea,one night he came up to the deck, kicking chairs and screaming at two of the guys in the group in English(these two didn't speak english to well),when I went down to ask what was going on in a calm and respectful way, he started to scream at me and to give me attitude, when I asked him why he was acting like that he said that no foreign was going to tell him how to act and if we were not going to follow rules we could get the .... out of his hotel, at this moment he called the police on us saying that all of us were at the front desk making trouble, when the only one at the front desk was me, a girl.I think he needs medical treatment,that's no way to treat customers,specially because the guys were just smoking and all the rooms near the deck were being booked by us,therefore the only ones listening to the guys outside were us and we can assure that they were not making any noise.He should not be in the hotel business or in the customer service business at all.

GOOD PRICES AND GOOD LOCATION AT I-DRIVE HOTEL WAS VERY GOOD BU THE ELEVATOR NEED TO BE FIXED IT WAS NO SENSOR LIGHT FOR THAT AND DANGEROUS FOR OLD PEOPLE IF USING THE ELEVATORGenuine Expedia guest review

"This hotel was nasty!"
Worse than the last time. Will not stay there again. They were having plumbing issues throughout the property and our rooms were without water so we couldn't bath before we left for Halloween Horror Nights. Toilets not working but was promised everything would be fixed before we returned. Got back at 2:30 in the morning and the water was brown and the […] toilets still would not work so all bathroom issues built up in the toilet. When we called the front desk, they told us that it would be fixed in the morning but we were leaving so it didn't matter by then. All the manager would refund us was the resort fee and roll away bed fee for one room. This place is disgusting and the BBB will be contacted as will the health department.

"wouldn't stay unless it's the last available hotel"
There was mild on the roof of the shower. Tub seemed like there was either a hole or waterunder the mat.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close and Cheap"
The hotel is very close to Universal and Wet & Wild, but not close enough that I wanted to walk there or more importantly walk back after a long day of walking around the park. There is a shuttle to Universal, but that shuttle only picks up at the hotel once at 9:45am and then doesn't pickup from Universal until 9:15pm, which makes it pretty useless. […] They do have a breakfast bar, but it only had coffee, juice, bagels, cereal, and oranges. Luckily Ponderosa has a cheap breakfast buffet is 2 blocks down the street. The pool was closed. The rooms were dated and in need of some TLC, but mostly clean. The beds were comfortable. For the price it is not bad, but it is clearly not a classy hotel and I wouldn't recommend it for a multi-day vacation. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A place for a bed and nothing else"
I chose the Howard Johnson because even though it was a cheap hotel, I though a chain would have nice accommodations. However, I was wrong. The hotel was very old looking, really straight out of a horror movie where they stay in a motel and get killed. The room was some what clean but the carpet was very very dirty. Bed was not comfortable and the decoration […] was completely outdated. I recommend this place if you absolutely need a one night stay for cheap. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"excellent location and service"
excellent. greatGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was well used, and could use an external face lift. The hotel location to interstate and attractions was very convenient. The price was affordable, but you get what you pay for. Clerk was nice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
When you get to the hotel the staff is very unfriendly and you get charged a $4 fee for the hotel which was not included in your price. When you get to the room it has very old beds that are low to the ground and you can feel the springs. The safe in the room didnt work and overall very disappointing...would never go back again.Genuine Expedia guest review

Cheap place to stay if you just need a place to crash. BASIC accommodations.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Orlando at your hands"
Unfortunately, I was pick-pocketed at the 7 eleven, but that´s a minor event compared to what you can expect from Orlando. The i-trolley is really great, you can even go to the outlet premiums and spend some - more - money.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel was close to both of the parks I was going to, Wet N Wild was literally one minute up the road and Universal was no more than ten. So location was great. However the room was not well maintained, the shower head didn't work properly, the carpet turned the bottom of my feet black and you could practically pull the whole faucet out of the sink. […] There was no microwave available and the refrigerator was super small. The employees at the front desk were nice but if you needed something from the maids you could just forget about it, some of them ignored you and the ones that didn't couldn't understand you because they only spoke Spanish. The WiFi worked really well and pool was nice. Free breakfast sucked, they only served some really gross bagles, oatmeal, and fruit loops or frosted flakes. Overall I would say that the best thing about the hotel was the low price and the location. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The rooms are dirty, The staff are nasty. And the beds need to be changed they are flat and very dirty. And the supposed continental breakfast is bagel and cereal. If you want to go to Orlando don't stay in this hotel, There are many hotels there that are better. This hotel gives a bad name to Orlando.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not Worth It."
This hotel has issues, the A/C was so loud it kept me up all night, the front desk did not change my room and offered no apology. The maid tried to enter the room in the morning without any warning. the room had a damp oder. The lobby had a leaky roof. There was no lighting in the stairwells on every floor. I would recommend staying away from this […] place. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Worth the price!"
I needed a place that was extremely affordable for a quick stay in orlando and i got a great price with a very basic needs room. I didn't need anything fancy just a clean place to sleep with basic comforts and they delivered. I will definitely stay here again if I needed to stay a night or two and didn't want to spend alot of money. Extremely convenient […] location as well. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Dirty and smells"
Room smelled really bad! Not clean and they even charged me an extra $10 for "hotel fees"Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Horrible all the way around!"
I have been traveling for business and staying in hotels for years, and this has to be the worst one to date. Pretty much everything about the place screams "Old and grungy". The plaster on the walls is falling off and has been re-patched a dozen times, the towel racks have been torn off the wall several times and been badly replaced. The beds were […] old and no firmness, paint everywhere was chipping off. I could go on and on, I'd definately find a different hotel in the future if back in this area.

It was horrible. The room smelled very bad and the smell was on our clothes when we left. Would not recommend this hotel to anyone!Genuine Expedia guest review
"The center of everything."
Family stay can classify good, regular daily the service we had that request towels since or they wouldn't let them or they wouldn't let the corresponding amount, rooms need maintenance of preventive fumigation since they have insects if they improve these points pass hotel to is class AGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"You get what you pay for"
My husband and I were on a cheap weekend gettaway before we started college back and decided to stay as cheaply as we could and stayed at the Howard Johnson. Our room was not exceeding by any means. The wallpaper was peeling, our mini friddge door would not shut. Not that we used it but it kept bugging me popping open while I was standing at the vanity […] and getting ready. The bathroom was very old and you could see spackle all on the walls and cracked floor tiles. It was not a classy establishment by any means but it served it purpose, the bed was surprisingly comfortable and the sheets were clean. Our bed did sink in the the middle a little but we like to sleep close anyway. We really enjoyed the location which was our primary reason for choosing the hotel. We walked to Wet n Wild and Senor Frogs. We only drove to City Walk and La Nouba. So all in all I say you get what you paid for. It was convenient for us to stay cheaply so we could $$$ everywhere else. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"great location and thats it."
They booked us in a room with a leaking sink and soaked floor.Then tried to charge us $50 because I smoked a cigar in a smoking room that maintenance thought smelled a little like weed. Plus the resort fee that they add at check in.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
They charge a resort fee when is a hotel. I dont understand that but help me to find a better place next time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"service not great"
the room was clean. Building looked like it need to be spruced up some ( metal rusting on some parts. Ice machine not working on my floor (third) checked the second floor and that one not working either. Call service to let them know, they said they knew about that but the one on the FIRST floor worked and to use that one. no applogy, no offer to bring […] some to room, nothing.
