Fairly basic but good location
We have just returned for our holidays - August 2004. We stayed at the Red Horse Inn for two weeks. During that time we found the hotel very basic and laking in atmosphere.
The choice for breakfast was very small including the breakfast area. There wasn't many tables and chairs to eat breakfast so quite often we ate by the swimming pool. For the majority of the holiday we ate breakfast elsewhere due to the fact that it wasn't a 'hearty cowboy breakfast' at all!
On a positice side, the hotel was very clean including the rooms. The swimming pool was of a good standard and the hotel location was within walking distance of good amenities.
I would return to the Red Horse Inn if I was on a budget and not planning to spend much time within the hotel.
Loved the Red Horse Inn
We stayed in the Red Horse Inn on International Drive for two weeks in August 2004, we found it to be very clean and the rooms were quite large. There was a self service laundry which was very handy when returning from the beach/pool/parks with wet towels and clothes. We would highly recommend it to anybody. The only down point was that there was no in-house restaurant but we soon got over that with the variety of different restaurants on our doorstep but they did provide a very substantial continential breakfast (free).
It was the worst place i ever stayed in. The staff were rude and not very pleasant. The rooms were disgusting and the windows were nailed together. The only good thing i can say about this hotel is that it is in a great location right across the road from Wet nd Wild and 5 min from Universal Studios.
Oh my god where do I start? Yes it looks good from the outside but the rooms are awful. On one of the beds there was a large stain of what looked like blood we noticed this because there was no fitted sheets on the beds just a flat sheet over the mattress. There was mold on the walls next to the beds. the bathroom stunk of mold and at 65.00 a night through expedia then when you get there they charge you a $5.oo night "resort fee". I was very disappointed. And angry!! Lesson learned STAY ON DISNEY PROPERTY AT THE ALL STAR RESORTS WELL WORTH PAYING THE DIFFRENCE. WHICH BY THE TIME THEY ADD ON THERE "RESORT FEES" IT EVENS OUT TO WHAT DISNEY RATES ARE.
Great place to stay
Hotel and service were great. The shower head was a little dirty and the setting arae for breackfest was small, but otherwise stay was great. The cowyboy breackfest was very nice, and the staff always made sure the food was being restocked.
Nice Lobby TRULY bad rooms.
The hotel lobby is truly inspiring. However, the rooms are the worse I have ever stayed (any where in the world). My girlfriend and I would not even take a shower. The bathroom tub was very stained and the everything looked abused. I don't recommend this place to any living creature. The rooms are just terrible. Oh! I tried a second room trying to give them a chance. Again, the final product was the same.
I would not stay here again
The only good thing about this place is the funky design in the entrance/reception area. The first room we were given smelled like paint and there were paint chips on the carpet. When we complained they switched us to a room with a filthy bathroom (previous guest's hair in the sink). It seemed they took the time (and money) to decorate the entrance/reception but neglected to upgrade the rooms. Also the 'complimentary' bus to the parks and the gym facilities is actually across the street at the Sheraton. We paid $75/night which included the $5 additional fee and taxes and it was not worth it.
i went on a school trip which i was really looking forward to and its not what i expected. it was better! youve got my compliments
The public areas are charming and themed, but the room we were given was early motel 6. not very clean no theme, the key didn't work. we waited in the hall for a long period until a maintenance man came to fix the door. there was a resort fee charge also takced on the room charges($5.00 per night). we checked out after the first night and stayed with relatives. the motel is however convenient to universal studios.
Staff was very helpful and careful to listen to and understand my questions. I would very much like to see a coffee machine in the building or perhaps a courtesy coffee pot in the breakfast area.

... is Mickey's Imagination which starts off very benignly and then goes very wrong when he has a nightmare and the Wicked Queen from Snow White materialises and calls all the Villains to wreak havoc. There is a massive dragon and a snake. Quite frightening in parts. Of course all ends well with ......more fireworks. It was a great show and a fitting end to such a lovely day. We were fortunate to get very good seats. The second show is always much ...
Late nights kills me! Today was a pretty cruisey day. We lazed around the pool while we waited for our laundry to be done. That's pretty much all we did all day. It was great! For dinner we caught the bus down to Disney Downtown. It's kind of a Hillarys Boat Harbour - but pure Disney. Heaps of shops, restaraunt and people playing music - ...
... Keith said there aren’t enough meals in a day to eat all the choices they give you in these countries. We stopped and looked at the miniature railroad and then proceeded on to Italy. Italy has a representation of the Doge’s Palace, the Campanielle and they even have a gondola! I had planned to stop at America, but the time for the Hall of President’s cut our Fast Pass to Test Trax a little close, so we decided to do it Wednesday. If we ...
... so we did the carousel and then headed back for a rest while Melinda and Nicaela stayed on . Melinda started lining up from 4pm for the Candlelight Light Processional at 6:45pm and we met up with her at 6:30- just in the nick of time! It was just beautiful. It was a concert with an orchestra, a huge choir and singers. The Christmas story was narrated by Christopher Groff (the voice of Christoff in Frozen) and in between there would be music and ...
... rope teams from the east, specifically Ohio, North Carolina, and Colorado. Very fun to see how many jumpers there are worldwide. One of the goals of World Jump Rope is to make jump rope into a community. The camp will be taught by many of the older jumpers from teams all over the world. Bryn is very excited about that as well. The awards ceremony was over early, relatively speaking, so we headed back after dinner. We are both exhausted!
