... drop we thought it time to buy some warm clothes!! We then had an interesting taxi ride back to the hotel, where our taxi got pinged by police not long after we had hopped in. Apparently a lot of people pose as taxi drivers but are not actually registered- so they get fined by police. This was a very confusing experience- and with 5 police working undercover was slightly intimidating for the 5 of us in the taxi! The next day we were off to universal studios theme park. ...
... Resort for my bro/sis-in-law that are currently planning a Lear Family expedition in the summer of 2014, then we are going to have a leisurely day at Magic Kingdom. Dinner reservations @ 6:00 P.M. at the Grand Floridian then a quick monorail ride to Magic Kingdom to catch the fireworks spectacular from the train station platform...heard it's the prime location to see it other than where we were last time (in front of Cinderella's Castle).
Good night and sweet dreams ...
... Jackson and the Sea of Monsters in 3D. The best bit about the cinema is that you have a button to call a waitress who serves you food and drink during the film, I felt like I was a celebrity. It took us ages to get home because of traffic so I went straight to bed after picking up some cough medicine on the way ...
... the inhabitants cooler than further inland. The highest point above sea level in the old town is 118 inches! Hurricanes and high tides are not much fun for the shops and houses in these parts.There was a bad fire in 1881 which devastated a large part of the town, then with rebuilding fairly complete, and funds in general severely depleted due to the rebuild plus the civil war costs which were heavy, there was a 7.2 earthquake in 1886!
This caused a lot ...
... Peter had Tomato Caprese and then another dish which I don't recall the name of but again it was mega. We arrive back at the villa around 8pm and as Peter is now driving we have some wine here rather than with dinner. We find a channel on TV that is showing repeats of The Golden Girls but both soon find we are dropping off (We both feel like we should be residents of the complex where the Golden Girls live) and retire to bed ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Masters Inn Orlando Kissimmee
Couldn't Wait To Get Out!
This hotel was horrible. We stayed in Aug of 2005,a day after a hurricane hit. So, we couldn't change hotels due to no vacancies. It looked like it was in an unsafe area. Not much to do around there. Couldn't leave a drink out for too long or bugs would be all over it. Actually, you couldn't leave anything out or you would be taking home bugs with you. The room smelt bad. My family hated it. Even though a hurricane had just hit them the day before, you could tell the place always looked that bad. International drive hotels looked wonderful and they were hit by the same storm. Pool was tiny and hardly any sun bathing seats. And that is after the pool not working for four days. Never again will I stay there again. Spend the extra money and stay on International Drive!
Good for the price
My Fiance and I stayed at the Master's Inn in March 21-24 2005. We thought the hotel was good for the price. We did not have any bugs that other people had. I didn't notice any broken furniture. It wasn't spectacular, but it was clean and we spent almost all our time at the park anyways, so the fact that the hotel was very basic didn't bother us. Given that we spent about $30 bucks a night I think it was a good value.
Everyone in our family hated the hotel. The rooms were really dirty!! There were insects (tiny, black, irritating ones) everywhere in the room. Even after the rooms were cleaned, I did not see much of a difference. The breakfast offered was really pathetic. All in all, it was a bad experience.
We stayed at the Master's Inn Kissimee from Nov 2nd - 5th. The hotel was booked as an airfare/ hotel package through Travelocity. We paid just $25 per night and feel that we got a great deal. The room was not lavish but was clean enough. The toilet handle was broken but my husband was able to fix it. :) Other reviewers said that the hotel stunk. I did not notice any smell. I asked at check in if we could have a room that animals are not allowed in but this was not possible as dogs are allowed in all rooms. The front desk personel said the carpets had been cleaned one month prior. Besides checking in and checking out, we had no need to contact the front desk. During these times, the staff was friendly. There was a continental breakfast which included coffee, juice and pre wrapped pastry, muffin or bagel (no cream cheese or butter provided). There are plenty of restaurants nearby. We had our own car and it took us about 10 -15 minutes to get to the parks. If I wasn't on a budget, I would stay in a fancy hotel, but for my pocketbook, this hotel works!
Stayed here May '04. The nightly rate was around $40 so I wasn't expecting anything fancy. We were staying with my brother and mom. The room wasn't as clean as the Days Inn or other hotels we stayed in during our vacation. I made the reservation online and didn't print out my receipt. I wish I did. Because since I made the reservation the day before than our arrival, somehow, our reservation was still not in their system. Than the desk clerk told us that the Sales Department (Who knows where, not located at the hotel) fax all the online reservations daily and they enter it the time you check-in. Of course with our luck, their fax machine was down and since we didn't have the confirmation with us, we were trapped in the lobby for about 30 minutes and the clerk refused to check us in until the fax came through. Anyway, at the end I got ------ and I just told the clerk to check us in with my credit card and once they receive the fax she can just release any authorizations she took. She said fine and we checked-in. The room was simple and everything seemed to be working but the Cable TV wasn't working and we had to wait for the next day in order to have it fixed since there was no maintenance personnel working on that evening shift. On the second night when I saw a huge cockroach crawling around the headboards next to my bed and that was "it" for this place. We managed to sleep and left the next morning. This was the worst place I stayed in around the Kissimee area. Its not worth it, even though it was free. The location is good but try other places instead and don't waste your time and money.
I'm not staying here again...
The rooms are small, carpet was dirty, and the bathroom stank. I would not recommend this place to anyone. Please save the extra money and book another hotel.
Do yourself a favor and stay far, far away from here. Stayed overnight with my husband and 2 year old daughter on Sep. 9th, 2004. The room smelled like death, the 'sleeper' sofa looked like it had been under a bridge for 10 years, and the place was damp and muggy. We only needed a place to stay for the night and my daughter was exhausted from the travel, so we stayed against our better judgement. Woke up the next morning and didn't even shower because we wanted to get out of there asap. Well, as we're getting into the car, I start itching all over my arms. Sure enough, I got over 50 bug bites overnight and had to go to the Emergency Room because I had been stung so many times. Think it was mosquitoes, as I'm allergic to them, and was sleeping with no covers (the covers were too small for two people on a double bed).
The worst hotel ever...
On first site the hotel is very scruffy, but wait until you see the rooms
awful smell (coming from the carpet)
damp chest drawers
hadn't been decorated since 1970
we didn't even stay the night
Do yourself a favour and book a villa
Checked in Christmas 2003. One of the worst hotels we have stayed in.
Poor room,pool dirty,dangerous steps up to higher level room,no plug on sink,bed too small, broken wood sticking out from bed caught leg, had to beg for extra pillows, threatened to buy our own and charge hotel, very unfriendly housekeeping staff. housekeeping staff member spitting on floor, had to buy air freshener for room,holes in towels. Pleased when we checked out. Will not go back.
