Wynfield Inn Orlando Convention Center
Travel Blogs from Orlando
We arrived at the Wyndham Orlando Resort on Saturday. The resort was very nice and the food at the restaurant was great. We were not able to update our blog on Saturday because Kiesha was being cheap and didn't want to pay the $10.00 to use the internet at the hotel. Therefore, we are running behind. Our next stop is the Contemporary at Disney!!!
... Turtle Talk With Crush which is a brilliant interactive animation show which you should definitely catch if you're ever out here. Whilst waiting to go in, a woman, who was standing next to me said "excuse me, may I ask where you are from?" And I said "can't you guess from my accent?" "Well," she said "I know it's somewhere in Europe, but I'm not sure where."
"What? You think I'm French? Or German? Or bleeding Spanish you daft tart?" I didn't say. What I ...
... 3pm by the time I grabbed them at about 9.30am, this is one popular attraction. A breakfast of giant cinnamon buns at Starring Rolls Bakery was followed by Sarah popping off with her sisters to the Great Movie Ride, while I took the kids to Disney Junior Live on Stage. We all enjoyed clapping, jumping and singing along with Mickey, Jake and Doc McStuffins and I have. I doubt there will be several repeat visits before these three weeks ...
... Next stop was the 'Astronaut Encounter' which was a presentation provided by Charlie Walker, an astronaut who had flown 3 shuttle missions on 2 different shuttles, the Discovery and the Atlantis. He gave an interesting account of his experiences. Got a photo with him - he was a little guy. Either that or I am just a fat lummix. Actually, probably both :)
Checked out the 'Rocket Garden' next which is an outdoor display of a number of different rockets launched here over the years. ...
... boy-crazy girl would be drooling! I say goodbye as I’m next in queue (single riders rarely get to ride together) and he introduces himself as Kyle. The next minute the ride attendant is sending us both to the same ride car. I’m not complaining ;) we go through, and I try to take notice of the smaller things I wouldn’t have noticed the first two times. When we exit, he decides to go on again and I join him. After the second time (my 4th time on the ride all ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Wynfield Inn Orlando Convention Center
I stayed at this hotel last week and hated it. Checked out early because my girlfriend and I could not stand it. This hotel had roaches, I requested a room change because of this and when we woke up the next morning in the new room, what did we see, roaches on the head board by our head. The location is good but thats the only good thing about the hotel. Room had wierd smell, carpet stained, only 8 television channels on a little tv, shower temperature kept changing and water pressure was little to none and no room service as they advertised. If your looking for somewhere to lay your head and don't mind any of the above, go right on ahead. Next time I go, i'm going to pay a little more and stay at the Marriot across the street. Did I mention that things were missing out of my girlfriends belongings after we checked out. Watch out for the room cleaners, have locks on everything. Never again.
I always like to give a place the benefit of the doubt, even if the reviews are shady. A lot of times people only write about a place when they are unhappy, so I booked a night here anyways. We checked in well after check in time, but the room was nowhere near ready to be occupied. There were no towels (and we had to ask the desk staff to have them delivered), stains on the furniture, the grate on the ac unit was broken (not good for little hands) and the toilet ran constantly! My husband was so disgusted, he packed us up to leave to stay somewhere else for a substantially higher price. They offered us another room which was acceptable at best, and we did end up staying the night. The landscaping was nice, but the walkways were dingy and littered (I was ready to take out a broom and sweep them myself). And there was a shady character wandering the grounds all afternoon. Even though the establishment was in a nice area, the TV channel that constantly ran tips about how "not to get ripped off" while staying there made me very uneasy.
OK for a base
We stayed here sept 03 Ok for a base that you only sleep in, the staff were great that we dealt with, i wouldn't say the location is that convienient, ok for sea world but all the other restaurants and attractions on I drive are quite a way from here. it was clean but a bit tired, the safe didn't work, and lots of frogs around the pool!
Having travelled from Cocoa Beach to Orlando and gone straight to SeaWorld to spend maximum time there that day, we arrived at the Travelodge tired but happy - But not for long! I was 'greeted' by a receptionist who didn't have a clue what he was doing and his colleage stepped in to help him out. She persisted in ignoring me and referring to me as 'her' and 'she' right in front of me whilst talking to her colleage. I felt like I didn't exist and that I was beneath her. Customer service was obviously not something that was of much importance to her. I was then given a 'Welcome Letter' which was a photocopy from the bin which proceeded to tell me that our rooms would be cleaned every FOUR days or there would be an additional charge if we wanted it more regularly! It wasn't even a good photocopy - it had been through the machine so many times on a bad toner setting and at the wrong angle, I was lucky I could read it!! We found our room and I have to say, I thought I had stumbled into a crack house or something. The stairs had blood on them, the bins in the stair well were overflowing the whole time we were there, the handle was missing off the door of the room next to us as if it had been busted by the cops and that certainly didn't make us feel safe and secure in our hotel. The room was nasty even for a budget hotel. The bed smelled damp, the toilet holder was falling off the wall in the bathroom.... ugh need I go on. And as for the 'Complimentary Breakfast'.... don't even bother to turn up - it's not worth a look. PLEASE, TAKE EVERYONE'S ADVISE - AVOID THIS PLACE LIKE THE PLAGUE!!! - or else you might catch it!
We booked this place on-line two weeks prior to arrival. We were looking for something that was centrally located, had shuttle service, a pool and continental breakfast.....basically best bang for our buck. No surprises at all, except for a few bonuses 1. that we could walk to Seaworld (through the Sheraton parking lot) which was nice, 2. the I-trolley stops right in front of the hotel 3. plenty of restaurants (Bennigans, subway, pizza, and chinese to name a few) and 4. small grocery/beer/liquor store right next door. For the amount we paid $42US per night, it was above average for value. Ignore the bad reviews, if you do your research ahead of time and have realistic expectations of "ya pay for what ya get" then you should have no problem with this place. If you are used to staying in the Sheraton....stop yer whining and stay there....it's across the street.
In all my years of traveling, I have not had a worse experience than I did in this hotel. Where do I start with the long list of horrors... If you are tempted to stay at this hotel because of a cheap rate, think again, sometimes you get a deal at a hotel, and it ends up being a good buy, but this is not one of those hotels. When I got to the hotel, it took over an hour to check in because they could not find my reservation. I got to my room, which was muggy and old. When I went to take a shower, the towels had hairs and stains on them, I ended up drying myself with my shirt. I was paranoid to even lay on the bed after that incident, and with reason, I then discover the bed sheets had holes and white stains on them ( I don't even want to imagine from what) So, I slept cold, refusing to cover myself with something so revolting. On my last day I had requested a late check-out (which was a nightmare to get) a male head housekeeper banged on my door and asked, when we were planning to leave, Then yells at me the check-out time of the hotel. I then decided this was enough, I called the front desk and asked for the manager, the young girl that answered told me there's no manager there and hung up on me ( At first, I thought she put me on hold because I couldn't believe that she had hung up on me) I have written 5 letters to Travelodge about this matter and I still have gotten no reponse. This was my stay at this hotel, I just thought people should be warned, I wish I had been.
Never Again! You get what you pay for
Where do I begin? I was charged a $20 cash deposit to use the safe key and phone for local calling. Room was horrible, with a dirty yellow comforter and the bathroom had so many spackled holes in the walls it's amazing they didnt cave in. Beds were very uncomfortable, pillows like Wheat Thins. This hotel showed a photo with a nice fountain in the front of it, too bad it belongs to the hotel next door and they got a nice camera shot of it to look like it was a Travelodge feature. Lobby of 'breakfast time' full of locals eating free food with their kids.
Great Location, Great Value
Rooms were clean and comfortable with TV and hairdryer and the housekeeping service was excellent, clean towels everyday. All staff were friendly and the Swimming Pool had a regular fresh supply of pool towels.
Restaurants and shops within walking distance and International Drive was a 2 min drive.
Very close to Sea World and a short distance from the other parks.
Village Inn restaurant next door did a fantastic breakfast - again the staff there were friendly.
If you are looking for a comfortable, clean room to crash into after a long day at the parks then this is for you.
Would defo stay here again.
The whole hotel smelled of must/mold. Dirty, old. Blanket on the bed had a hole 12" in diameter. Cot for youngster smelled of vomit. Shower head fell off and part of pipe landed in bathtub. We and other couples changed few days after arrival to Fairfield Inn on Canada Ave. What a nice hotel. Very little cost to upgrade.
i have been to florida 5 times in the last six years and every year i go back to the same hotel because it is everything i need in a hotel.When i first stayed it was called wynfield but it changed it name to villger premier but i am glad that was all it changed.The rooms are clean and the maid service is good all the staff are so friendly the location of the hotel is excellent you can walk to seaworld it is only 10 min.The hotel breakfast buffet is good the only little tiny compliant is the toasters their is not enough and the are slow dont always brown the bread.The pool side bar is always a buzz the music at night sometimes is loud but after a exhausting day we sllep thught anything.I am hoping to go back this year .On all my visit to florida i go round lots of other hotels and as yet have never found one which i would rather stay inthan the villager premier. The rates are very good to.*RATING BY ME AND MY FAMILY
