Orlando Continental Plaza Hotel
- What's Included
I had to stay here due to hurricane Irma and flights being delayed and cancelled. It was all I could get for 1 night. Arrived and checked in, paid $46, you get what you pay for I suppose. No fridge which you have to pay $5 a night for and no working safe. Bathroom very very tatty. Went to bed, reading on my iPad after we turned the lights out and I saw something run across the sheet by my chest, shot up and turned the light on only to find cockroaches on both beds! Horrified! Could also see stuff scuttling across the desk. If you added on the cost of fridge and safe you would be paying $10 a night less than staying at a Much better hotel!
The good is every staff member was extremely nice which I really like. The second is the location, you can walk to Universal in twenty to thirty minutes, depending on pace. You are also walking distance to many restaurants, shops and both of the Fun Spot locations. And the pool is nice and large with lots of chairs and recliners. The bad is I think the owner used to work for an airline as everything is an add-on. You have to pay for ice (a quarter per bucket), pay for a fridge and safe and the food plan is not worth it. Coffee is anywhere from $1.50 to $3.00 and the hot items are all microwaved and cost $2.50 in the coffee shop. The canned drinks are $2.00. So if you want the food credit, I would pass. Again, the lady working in the cafeteria is a very nice lady who doesn't hesitate to say "good morning". The wi-fi is also only in the lobby so every night there are many people trying to find a spot in the lobby to use the wi-fi. I just went and sat by the pool. One more bad thing is the price is low so the clientele is also low. Lots of smokers who leave their butts on the pool deck and even a lady standing on the second floor dropping her ashed into the pool area. Also people who have very loud conversations on Skype by the pool. One girl was yelling at her ex about closure and she was yelling at him, while sitting in a public area.
We chose this hotel because of location. You can walk for 15 minutes and be in Universal. For backpackers and if you want to save 20 dollars parking fee in Universal daily, then this is for you. This was our original plan but we didn't do it. We took the car daily. We were in Universal /Island /Volcano Bay Parks for 4 long days arriving late nights, so the hotel served our purpose. It has a KFC (Kentucky Fried Chicken) fastfood just outside and a Walgreens pharmacy around the corner. This is not a hotel you can relax in. It has no wifi in the rooms so everybody is in the lobby. It has no microfridge.You can rent a fridge for 5 per day and use the micro in the laundry room.(Yes, they have a self-laundry room, 1 washer, 1 drier,2 USD per load). Ice costs money. It has no breakfast and the rooms are run-down, Our carpet was permanently wet near the sink so we had to have our beach slippers inside the room. We had to ask for towels everyday since everytime they clean they take away the dirty towels without replacing. We also had to ask for toiletries at the same time. The reception was very friendly and helpful everytime and always responded to our needs.
Stayed here couple of nights, ok hotel just off i drive, has pool, ice machine, walkable to many restaurants and bars on i drive, directly behind KFC , hotel was clean and comfortable and was worth the money
Minimal needs gets you a low price. It's close to all the parks and restaurants. The trolley stops very near to connect with the parks, or you can use their shuttle. We are season pass holders so we use our car and get free parking.
