The Lord Inn Hotel
Travel Blogs from Orlando
Today we got up early and headed to Discovery Cove. At this water park, we were able to get in the water with dolphins. We swam with the dolphins and they let us hang on for a ride. We also got to kiss a dolphin on its cute little snout.
We bought a photo package that includes a disk, but we don't have a disk drive with us. So, the photo of us with the dolphin is a photo of a photo, with a ...
... and I did the horse drawn carriage tour while Jan & Garry walked around the market, having done the horse tour on a previous visit.An interesting point I noticed is that the horses have rubber horseshoes, quiet, and soft for the horses I guess! See photo...The guide girl was a fount of knowledge, and kept us enthralled with the stories of Charleston's history.
The site was chosen because it is a good harbour, and importantly, gets a nice sea breeze ...
... bonus" fastpass for Philharmagic, then in to Winnie the Pooh, then Peter Pan. We had a quick go on the Carousel in the little carriage while we waited for the others to come through and pick the photopass+ off us and then we went on Voyage of Little Mermaid. The others were finished on Space Mountain by then so we met up for a last Buzz Lightyear ride. Gareth hadn't really tried before on Buzz ...
... eating we went to a ride called Jurassic Park, which was another ride where were were going to get possibly definitely soaked as the attendant pointed out, there was no chance of staying dry, Lilia didn't want to go but we convinced her it would be OK, she didn't want to get wet, even though she can spend 3 weeks in a pool in the middle of winter - go figure?
We went to try and go on more rides we had earmarked but there were limitations such as height ...
... ok?" and she's like "yeah, of course". I don't think it matters how much weight you lose, you still worry about things like that. The line is virtually non-existent which is almost a shame as the ride begins in the line as you walk through Hogwarts - the talking paintings and other magical things bewitch you with their presence and mention things that pave the way for the theme of the ride. We reach the front of the line in no time, passing the 'sorting hat' that warns us ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Lord Inn Hotel Orlando
Not too bad
we were staying at the hotel for a week and found the hotel not too bad the room we were in was ok apart from it was damp but we weren"t in it for that long during the day the other down side was that a couple of the rooms by ours got broken in to but luckily ours didnt but its what you have to expect as it goes on all over the world it was in a handy location and the staff were reasonably friendly i dont think it would be my first choice to stop in again but would if i had to
This Travelodge is the best place to stay in Orlando. It has staff that can't do enough for you. Good sized clean rooms. Pool was always clean and with plenty of pool towels and a nice poolside bar. Relly nice reception staff and security gaurd.
we arrived late at night to a room that wasnt fit to keep an animal in,the bath had a dark brown stain around the entire unit,in the tiolet was someones stools floating around and the beds were filthy the pillows were tiny square hard crusty lumps the linen was wet and stunk of mildew the taps didnt run they hit the roof when trying to use them i went to reception to complain only to find so many other pepole doing the same thing i refused to lay on the beds so me and my sons sat up all night we did manage to move out but beware this will cost you to tranfer.also we were approached by a gang near the hotel and told they would shoot us if they saw us again i urge anyone staying here to be very carefull of night activity in the imetiate area,and to make things worse JETLIFE whom i might add did nothing about our frighting experience told us that they have removed this hotel from the brochure but guess what NO THEY HAVENT.and one last word DO NOT STAY IN THIS FILTHEY PIT HOLE THEY CALL A NICE FAMILY HOTEL!!!!!
We wanted a no-frills hotel that would just be a base as we were out every day. This fulfilled that criteria but went so far as to make us really reluctant to come back at night. It was utterly devoid of any charm, the decor was very drab and the beds were the most uncomfortable I have ever slept on. The air con was old and noisy, as was the fridge, the bathroom wasn't very clean and our neighbours kept us awake at night. The only good thing about it was its location. We stayed at the Ramada across the road from this hotel the year before which was the same price but much better value for money. This felt like a cheap motel. I wouldn't go back.
I have just got back from staying at this hotel after i had booked and read the reviews on here i was a little aprehensive to say the least!!we checked in and were allocated a room (106) we walked in and it stunk of smoke when we had requested a no smoking room we ummed and ahhed for a couple of minutes then i went to the front desk let them know we requested non smoking.. they were super helpfull and the second room we had was great, none smelly and a better air con system.i would stay at this hotel again if the price was right the staff were very friendly, the pool was a decent size (bigger tham other hotel pools in the area) and the breakfast even though it was only coffe juice donuts and tast was super!
Not good value
We stayed at this hotel in december 03' and having been to florida before and stayed in ecomomy accomodation, which was excellent value for money we never thought this was going to be any different..how wrong we were.. the room we had was damp and infested with ants you could leave nothing on the floor as within miniutes it would be crawling with them..food in the room was definatley not an option..the decor was shabby and the staff not very helpful. there are much nicer hotels in orlando for the same price..so give this one a miss
Visited in 2002 and from what I understand it hasn't improved. At the time I was so excited about my holiday that I took no notice of the problems at the hotel.
Orlando on a budget
One of the best Hotels, i found was the Travelodge, Internationel drive. A basic hotel, friendly staff, clean environment, the only comment, i would give would be it needs a touch of paint, and revamping, but you only stay there for sleeping. The breakfast advertised, is only donuts and coffee and juice, so you may need to have breakfast at a local restrurant. Near to public transport, near Wet and Wild theme park and large shopping complex.
Me and my boyfriend went to Orlando during the early part of August for a week. We went through a travel agency. We were given hotel arrangements for the Traveloge on International Drive, and oh what a mistake that was. When we first arrived, we walked into the lobby and there was a mildewy smell in the lobby. So we continued to check-in, upon entering our room it was a mess. It smelled of pure cigarette smoke, and there was a mildewy smell in the room. Underneath the airconditioner there was a puddle of water just sitting there. we walked on the balcony to view the pool, and there were several dirty towels sitting on the balcony. All around the door was mildew. It was just a mess. I immediately went downstairs and demanded another room.
A big let down!
Rooms were filthy, and were ALL smoking rooms despite the fact that we booked NON smoking rooms a YEAR in advance, and had this confirmed on paper!!. We found yellow mould growing on the carpets in both our rooms (which the cleaning ladies hoovered around everyday!!!) and both rooms also had problems with ants coming up through the sinks. We also had to run the risk of breaking our necks on the nearest staicase because the edges of the steps were loose. We booked our holiday through Virgin, and as regular virgin users i can honestly say that this hotel was not up to virgin standards, and we wouldnt go there again if it were the last hotel in Orlando. For a fairly new hotel, it was of an amazingly bad standard and very shabby.
