... the ***** rainy weather it was still an amazing two weeks and was really sad to see Rose go home as I headed down into Belize. Got stuck in some weird farmer town akin to The Hills Have Eyes, before reaching the tiny Caribbean town of Sarteneja which was proper in the middle of nowhere but I cycled round with my purple bike blasting out music and waking them from their slumber, before heading to the islands of Caye Caulker. Discovered fry jacks - possibly the most unhealthy ...
... or so minutes because we had to get to our reservation- I was happy to leave haha sitting still for a normal length movie is hard enough for me! We wandered back through city walk to NBA city for dinner. This was an NBA themed restaurant with courts out front, hoops inside, a team store, bball court flooring, TVs playing love games at each booth and heaps of memorabilia around the place. The food was incredible- I had a delicious chicken salad with a peanut vinegar dressing. We ...
My flight to Orlando left on time and I managed to sleep a little on the short one hour flight! When I arrived I had to wait on Megan for an hour and a half, she was flying in from spending Thanksgiving with her family. Was so good to see her when she arrived, another friendly face :) ! We were both hungry so we went for breakfast and I treated Megan as a thank you! After that I just felt like sleeping somewhere, anywhere but Megan was working at 4pm and ...
... letting in for Fantasmic, so we parked the stroller and found a spot just about in the center of the amphitheater. This is still my favorite night show! Caitlyn sat on my lap to watch the show and wasn't sure of a few parts, but still thought it was neat! It was still a great show with the live stage and the water shows.
We were hungry and walked around the Studios a little bit and got a family photo in front of the Sorcerer Hat before we left on our last night ...
... were amazing, showing the actual footage of astronauts working inside the shuttles and doing space walks to make repairs to the telescope, and all in 3D. Really cool ! After the movie I headed across to the 'Shuttle Launch Experience' which is a simulation of an actual shuttle launch complete with all the noises, movements, etc. You are tilted 90 degrees as if you were in a shuttle vertically as you would be in real life. It was okay but probably not worth the 30 minute ...

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.
