Orlando Continental Plaza Hotel
- What's Included
Checked into this hotel, got to our room and instantly saw bugs crawling on the wall and on the door. The odor of the room was overbearing. The bed had stains all over it. The bathroom was something out a horror movie. You literally get what you pay for. I've never seen so many bugs in a hotel, unfortunately I also got multiple bug bites from the few minutes we lasted in the room. We instantly checked out and went to another hotel. Don't waste your money.
Book this hotel if you don't care about the quality and are just looking for a place to sleep. I had a feeling it wouldn't be the best place seeing as the rate was in the $30 range per night. The one saving grace is that the beds were extremely comfortable. Things to keep in mind:1. There is not a restaurant- it is a snack bar. Cheap breakfast options like Jimmy Dean sausage sandwiches, bagels, etc.2. They ADVERTISE high speed wifi in the rooms. There is NO wifi in the rooms, you have to go to the lobby to get a connection.3.They charge for refrigerators, which is fine, but they also charge you to get ice to keep things moderately refrigerated and cold. 4. No water pressure in showers5. The toilet in our room wasn't fully attached to the floor, and it smelled like open sewage.6. They advertise a shuttle service to the theme parks: HOWEVER the one for Universal Studios leaves the hotel at 11:30am when the park opens at 8am. You lose 3.5 hours of park time. Walking there is easy enough though, 10-15 min away. Disney World shuttle leaves at a decent time 7am.
If modern, clean rooms that smell fresh and have working appliances aren't your thing, stay at this hotel. I cannot remember finding anything in the room that wasn't in someway broken, faulty or dirty. You can't get wifi in your room, yet a hotel that's 300 yards away across the street provides steady wifi connection. The hotel staff were pretty friendly at least, although they didn't ask how my stay was - presumably because they knew the answer was gonna be "it sucked."
We had a 14 night stay here, and couldn't really fault it. I'm it's a bit dated but our room was cleaned daily. Great location, walking distance to Universal, and shuttle provided to Disney. Plenty of shops, restaurants on your doorstep. I've stayed in several hotels on International Drive and this certainly isn't the worst. They are cheap, basic accommodation. If you're looking for luxury then this is not for you. Positive points- location, friendly helpful staff, clean pool area, warm pool water, clean towels everyday, room cleaned daily (not perfect but done)Negatives - no fridge or coffee making facilities in the room, this is usually free, WiFi only in lobby, so it was a bit like an internet café at times. Our room was a bit noisy at times, 112 our fault , at check in we were asked if we wanted to be ground floor near the pool. With a young child we said yes, didn't realise that the pool opened 8am-11pm, and had a gate that slammed shut. We were too tired the first night to complain and move. We got used to it and the air conditioning blocked it out. But if you're looking for quiet, don't stay near the pool.Would I stay again? Yes I would.
Manager and staffs miscommunication ruined my out of town experience. Manager was very rude. Yelled at me. Said mean things about me. Wouldn't accommodate. 0 out of 5 starts. Wouldn't recommend to my worst enemy.
