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.

The run up to leaving London went as smoothly as it could have, leaving work last Wednesday, various runs to Norwich and mid-Beds with all our stuff, dropping the flat keys back to the landlord on Sunday and leaving for the drive to Manchester on Monday was ambitious but achieved with no major hitches. Damn tiring though... Saying goodbye to our …
... br> There was so much going on there to keep people entertained and busy. The food there was great and wasn't too over priced. The rides were really cool and you could link them to some of the movies you watched when you were younger.
By the end of the day I was exhausted from all the walking but it was worth it. I would definitely visit there again if I got ...
... me with housing. Jamie's husband, Gary, is currently deployed in Afghanistan and is soon to return to the States in late fall. Jamie has a beautiful cat, Ella and a beautiful home in Southeast Colorado Springs. Jamie and Gary were basically like a host family and provided me with such a great living environment and friendship. I still miss coming home and seeing Ella waiting for me at the door so I could give her dry food instead of the wet cat food Jamie had to give ...
... br> Sapna & Divya treated us to dinner at Cedars Mediterranean restaurant. Yum!
Naughty Sapna & Divya made "us puff the magic dragon." - smoke the hookah!
Had some lemonchello shots.
Went with Sapna & Divya to Universal. Lots of simulated rides, "Transformers, Terminator 2, Horror makeup show, Disasters, Shrek etc." Fun, fun, fun......
I loved ...
We woke early, nicely refreshed this morning (except that my arm is mega sore from my tattoo!) and eager to get into Universal Islands of Adventure! We stopped around the corner to get some gas and then raced to the theme park to try and beat the crowds. We were lucky in this respect, and found ourselves at the head of the queue. We waited for nearly an hour for the gates to open, but once they had, we followed Laura’s usual plan of action and raced to the ...
