"good bargin & close walking distance"
We liked the fact that this hotel was located withing a 3/4 mile walking distance from Universal. They also offer a shuttle service as well. Alot of food chains also within wlking distance. Only con was that the TV channels were limited & half of them offered no sound. So we were only able to view a small handful of channels at night.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Enjoy my stay there,thinking about coming back in October,Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The only good thing about this hotel is the area its in and the pool outside. We had no hot water. Disappointed in the quality of the hotel as well.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good hotel for couple days stay"

"Best Girlfriends Getaway Ever!!!!"
Great location and friendly staff. We had breakfast at the hotel. Lounge was available as well. We attended the Orlando FunkFest at the Fairgrounds. Awesome Trip. A must do again!!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Clean and good size rooms. No complimentary wifi though. Good location close to casinos at top end of strip. Parking available.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel; nice location"
The hotel is nicely located on International Drive, near several chain restaurants and attractions such as The Titanic Experience. Everything (wi-fi, location, facilities) was as advertised.Genuine Expedia guest review
Pro: Clean room, pool area and lobby. Located near many activities,places to eat, shops and walk. Safe area. Price Good breakfast buffet next door. Cons: Poor quality of bed linen and pillows. Difficult getting clean towels daily. Water was cold>medium at best. Hallways/elevators needs updating on carpet. Cleaning staff playing loud music in early […] AM. 700a ish.

Hotel is located close to many attractions like Wet & Wild, Universal Studios and ton of dining options. Hotel is dated & more resembles motel than hotel. Our room was dark, but fairly clean. We did ask room service to vacuum the rug as it has not been done during our stay. No bugs, hot water, good AC. Pool was pretty large and mostly deserted. Breakfast […] buffet at the hotel (costed extra) is ok, although fruit mostly from the cans. Do not be tempted to try breakfast buffet next door! Same price as the hotel, but food was awful - fried on the old grease. Overall it was ok value for the money considering we came back only to sleep in the hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel close to Universal, wet n wild."
The kids had fun at pool. The game room had fun games but smelled bad. The Buffett next store was ok! But it was very close to Universal so you can go back and forth easily. So I think it was a great stay!Genuine Expedia guest review
"5th time not a charm..."
This is the 5th time i've stayed at this hotel. I stayed this time for 9 days, and from day 1, I had no wifi service in my room, which was a major disappointment! I did bring it to the attention of the hotel staff immediately, and other than apologize, could not resolve this for me. Now I will have to think twice before I stay here again....Genuine Expedia guest review
Very Good Quality !!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"You get what you paid for."
What I liked: the location, the trolley stop right on front, the AC, even though pretty noisy, it worked. What I didn't like: The SMELL! OMG... as soon as you enter and everywhere you go. The staff is not even friendly, they act like they're doing you a favor. Not even a simple smile!. No water on the vending machines, a depressing area pool. The restaurant […] on location has breakfast, but you better stay away from that, at night the food is 'better', but mostly meat and I'm not a meat person. The worst the sheets on my bed. I dont even want to go there!. That was what angers me the most!. Why can't they simply get new sheets?. I'm sure those sheets are like from the '70's!. Anyways, stay if you don't mind any of that. I personally won't. It's not really BAD, you just get what you paid for. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"don't stay here!"
Trying to book this hotel on the phone with the language barrier should have been the first clue. The room was out dated, badly in need of an up date and new carpet. No security. House keeping was a joke. They were out of coffee, forgot towels, we had to ask every day for towels. The elderly lady at the front desk needs to retire. She has NO people […] skills, she didn't care about the lack of any towels, and really wasn't even apologetic or sorry that we had to keep coming up for towels daily.

"a good hotel close to a lot of the sights"
The room was roomy and clean, the service quality was great, the hotel amenities was adequate, the location was good, right across the street from wet n' wild, and next door to black angus steakhouse....our stay here was enjoyableGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel was not cleaned even had bug and we need to change the room , carpet was really dirty and molds in bathroom and I will not go this hotel anymore.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Rear parking lot was so dark that we could not park our car overnight.Avarage small hotel but clean and comfortableGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good hotel for spending your nights."
We stayed for 9 days. We'd leave during the day and come back at night, basically to crash and get up the next day. So if that's what you need the Monumental Movieland Hotel will meet your expectations. It's right in the middle of International Drive, across the street from Wet n' Wild. There's a Walgreens next door, a Ponderosa and some other restaurants […] close by, and also many of those discount 1.99 dollar stores. For everything else, we took cabs, and the fare would be around 15 dollars for the outlets and the Mall at Millennia, 5 for the Universal Resort, 30 to Downtown Disney and the Florida Mall. The hotel offers a bus to the parks that is actually a bus that goes around several hotels picking up people, and the schedule doesn't help who wants to stay at the parks till late or who wants to start early in the day (unless you're going to WDW). Room has air conditioning and air humidifier, microwave, refrigerator, blow dryer and iron. The TV is an LCD model, several channels, no PPV. There's a vending machine and an ice machine in the hallway. The game room is pretty poor. The restaurant adjacent to the hotel, Black Angus Steakhouse, is very good, both for lunch/dinner and pizza. Breakfast, only if you enjoy US style breakfast. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great Location for a Girls Getaway!"
The desk staff was very nice and friendly. The hotel has some really great posters and movie photos all along the hallways that we really enjoyed seeing. We even took different routes to our room daily to see them! We will be coming back again to see the progress on the pool area as it looks like its going to be really great. Our room even has a dehumidifier […] in it which was great for my friend with allergies and keep our room most comfortable. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Worth the savings!"
It's not a 5 star hotel, but definitely worth its affordability. I would definitely return if I want to take a short & affordable mini-vacation. The black angus restaurant and karaoke bar attached to the hotel are pretty decent too!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
not much. charge to much for what you getGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Bad Beds - OLD OLD OLD"
Beds were terrible - Noisy place but that's I Drive everywhere. This place was NOT comfortable - not even as comfortable as its price. ANY other I Drive hotel would be a better choice than here.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Charming hotel with nice amenities"
My boyfriend and I were visiting Universal Studios and wanted to be sure that we saved money where possible. So we wanted to bring some of our own food and have a hotel with a mini-fridge and microwave in the room. Movieland did not disappoint there; it had nice appliances and was overall a cute room. The only problem was the pillows...we wondered if […] they had unstuffed some teddy bears and used the remains to fill the "pillows." The towels were also extraordinarily thin, more so than most hotel towels. Location could not be beat, however...8-10 min to Universal, depending on traffic, and easy to find, even for folks used to a smaller city. And the movie posters and actor photographs on the wall were delightful, especially for movie fans like us. It's always fun to walk to your room and pass posters of Indiana Jones, Elvira, and the Alien. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Get what you pay for."
This hotel was cheap compared to the other hotels in the area. It was not dirty but it felt old. Room was tiny and one of the two full size beds had a mattress that was shaped like a "u". Wall were thin and people going past room were loud. The breakfast buffet at the restaurant was very inexpensive and had decent food. Staff seemed fine.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice but not perfect"
They clean the room everyday which is really nice. But they set us in a room far away from the entrance that we need to walk 5mins after we enter the hall. When you're tired after whole day going around, you really just want to get back to your room as soon as possible. I have to walk a looooot to get in and get out everyday.Genuine Expedia guest review
"not far from airport"
Stop over before cruise. Hotel a little dated, but had nice resteraunt and bar area. Area was nice, price was good. Would stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Disappointed and not a 3.5 hotel rating."
Hotel needs to be renovated. The carpeting in the hallways needs to be changed or thoroughly cleaned. The rooms need to be checked to make sure all wall sockets are functional and appliances/lighting connected. Hotel staff needs to be fully aware of information regarding theme parks and Visitors information for the immediate area.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Everything I needed for cheap"
This place is alright. The place looks old, the vegetation in front looks good but the rest not so much. The hotel is an old one but still works like a charm. The beds are spring loaded, and not so comfortable, and the sheets also looks old, but it didnt matter to me. the room was spotless clean, housekeeping even came in twice a day sometimes. the […] water was so hot I could cook ramen with it, and instant hot too. The price was perfect, close to everything, food of all sorts near by, breakfast buffet in the nextdoor Steak House for 5$. they also have nice steaks for lunch n dinner. The Bar is pretty good, the bartender gave me strong drinks and karaoke was hilarious. If you want nice looks and shiny things go to the Waldorf Astoria. If you want a nice place to stay, close to everything, cheap and nice, this is it. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

there was mold in the bathroom because of how humid it was in the room. The other into the room was a dehumidifier it made a loud noise in the middle of the night that I had to get up an empty.the room was not ready when we arrived and there was a problem in checking out with simply getting a receipt. I will not ever stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Front desk lacks customer service skills"
The staff at the front desk lacked any customer service skills. I was the third patron in line and had the opportunity to overhear what appeared to be the manager mis-handle an unhappy customer in An almost inept manner. Their overall attitude was that they were doing the patrons a favor by allowing them to stay at their hotel. On the positive side […] the hotel is in an excellent location. Next time I will pass on this location Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Price for a good stay."
Stay was okay for price, really close to everything.Genuine Expedia guest review
The air conditioner sounded like a jackhammer, the furniture was in rough shape - the lamp on our bedside table looked like someone scratched it up with a knife and parts of the mirror adjacent to our bed had come off. There's something disconcerting about looking into a mirror that looks like it has large bullet holes going through it. The towels the […] hotel had provided were also dirty. Do yourself a favor and pay the extra $20 to stay in another hotel, we were mad at ourselves for not having done it. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Deak clerk would not extend my stay for three more"
My nursing agency did not deposit pay in my debit account. I did not have debit payment for an additional three nights. Clerk would not await morning deposit. An associate covered one night expense which was charged more than prior Expedia nightly rate. I switched to Days Inn motel Monday.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Bed, Bath, Fridge, Microwave, TV, Restaurant, Bar"
This is an older hotel, it does needs some TLC, BUT it was quiet, everything worked, Black Angus steakhouse and bar are attached to the hotel. It is right off of I-4 on International drive, a couple blocks from Universal and three miles from SeaWorld. There is a pool but we were there for the parks. Stayed two nights, no problems, sheets were clean. […] didn't even know I-4 was across the parking lot. Walgreens and KFC are right next door. Will go back again, good price.

"not for families"
We traveled to Orlando from Ohio and stayed here to go to Disneyworld. We booked the hotel and payed online. We got to the hotel around 1130 am and were told we had reservations, but couldn't check in until 400 pm. We told them we had driven 16 hours and just wanted to shower and rest before going out, and asked if the rooms had been cleaned if we could […] check in early. Customer service was awful, They wouldn't even check to see if they were ready or not; they just said it's their policy that you can't check in until 400 pm. If we hadn't already paid we would have left and gone somewhere else. We had to a 2 children aged 8 and 9, a 2 year old, and a 6 month old, our elderly grandmother, and 3 adults and had to stay out around town and find stuff to do for hours! Once we were finally able to check into our rooms we found the beds were tiny. You can't fit 2 adults on one bed unless they are both small. We had to order a roll out bed for my husband to sleep on, which of course they charged extra for. The beds were also very uncomfortable. You could feel every spring poking through the mattress. There was yelling and banging doors half the night. The only good thing about staying here was the restaurant next door. Because of it's location this hotel might be ok for younger groups looking to go out at night around town, but if you actually want a comfortable hotel go elsewhere.

Close to Disney world, Universal, City walk and right across from Wet & Wild. Staff were friendly & helpful. room was big with a nice big flat screen TV, I would definitely stay here again if I come back to the Orlando areaGenuine Expedia guest review
"It was above average"
The rooms where clean. Location is the best an its connected to a really good steak house.. Staff was friendly . more friendly to the Spanish speaking patrons but that's not a big deal. They gave me many smiles an helped me in every way I asked them to. I will stay here again an again because of location .Genuine Expedia guest review
I have stayed here in the past, they have done a lot of work, painting etc. Although they took pictures of the stars down and didn't put them all back :( The bed was like sleeping on a box spring, if your feet hung over the edge of bed it felt like the box spring would, or should I say wood. The internet was terrible couldn't get online most of time, […] I complained but nothing improved. Changing rooms would not have helped as I tested in other parts of hotel. The pool area had all kinds of construction debris just sitting there in one corner. They are trying but need help Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
