... pass while waiting on Tim to arrive. The room is really first rate. First, the building itself is only a year old. Second, she has HER OWN ROOM. It's a suite of 4 rooms and 2 bathrooms. Two girls share bathrooms that are on either end of the long hall connecting all 4 rooms. The sink and shower area are nicely appointed with new cabinets and framed mirrors. It is freshly painted with no holes or other blemishes on the walls. ...
Next round of Disney Parks has commenced. Disney World in Orlando is actually made up of 4 theme parks and 2 water parks. Today we did Magic Kingdom, basically a replica of Disneyland. Space Mountain was a favourite again. Skipped a few rides that were too long of queues that we had done over in Anaheim. Another magical day. Weather fantastic. Home early for a change. Kids having an early night for a change. More Disney tomorrow ...
... Americans would say) giant pain in the ass. Moving swiftly on..... I had prebooked our fast passes on Monday and we had Star Tours, Rockin Rollercoaster and Tower of Terror. Fairly short lines meant we were able to ride each of them twice, still not enough..... I had never ridden the rollercoaster before, it was awesome, on our second ride John decided we should ride together, he had ridden with Matt the first time and his ears were still ringing from ...
... pretty good fun.
We grabbed some coffee on the street and a travelling show stopped nearby. Gary was chosen to participate in a matchmaking game with three women, all playing different characters. He ended up picking the Marilyn Monroe lookalike – go figure. For his efforts, he won a dream fast pass and gave it to the kids and I for another ride on the Tower of Terror.
We continued to wander around the park ...
... carriage rides in the park than I had originally assumed. A truly outstanding ride that had a bit of everything - the Dark Arts classroom, talking paintings, a holographic, although unfortunately for Kenzie (niece, avid reader and Ron Weasley admirer), fully clothed Rupert Grint - not to mention a few surprises, such as seeing a Hustler discreetly hidden in Dumbledore’s book of spells, and how virtual quidditch made me scream so easily.
Then it was an early ...

Historical Traveler Reviews La Quinta Inn Orlando International Drive North
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.
