Our stay was pretty good We stayed for a 6 days and they came and cleaned half way through our stay which was perfect timing The rooms are good sized and the location is perfect

I only have a few complaints there isn’t any vending, the furniture is a little dirty and the restaurant isn’t open all the time and they don’t offer everything listed on the Starbucks menu There also should be more towels in the family 2 bedrooms Other then that our stay was good

Had an Amazing stay at the point over the July 8th Weekend I spent my Days at Universal and it was nice to come back to rest and relax at The Point Had a nice 9 story view from my balcony

Also Enjoyed the layout of my room, Small but quaint and all I needed to enjoy my stay I highly recommend staying here PS Bathrooms are spacious and Very Relaxing to unwind in after a Long day in the Florida heat

Disappointing best describes The Point Hotel We arrived after the check-in time, but our room still wasn’t ready We were told we would receive a text when the room was ready, but we never did

When we finally made it to the room hours after the check-in time, we were impressed with the size of the suite, but otherwise disappointed It had not been cleaned well There was soup scum in the shower and tub and dirty floors Our kids immediately noticed how dirty their feet got just from walking on the carpetThe appliances are dated, seemingly 20 years old, as were the TV’s The picture quality and channel selection was a throwback to the 90’s The refrigerator barely worked The furniture was worn The cook ware and dish ware was minimal, making it very difficult to prepare meals There was a pull out bed, but no sheets or blanket The bedding we did have was very low quality, reminiscent of a Motel 6The staff was not at all welcoming and uniformly seemed annoyed by their job Literally every staff member we interacted with seemed like they hated being there They weren’t necessarily rude, just dismissive and seemingly annoyedOverall, the stay was very disappointing and not at all what we expected based on the online photos and other reviews If you are looking for a place to stay in Orlando, our suggestion is to keep looking There are so many other options that will not disappoint

Pleasant STAFF made this hotel extra special! Nice pillow assortment, bed comfortable but squeaks on movement from bed frame rubbing Room darkening shades Nice layout, comfortable size room, had king size bed

Pool is out door with lounge chairs and a cabana corner Shuttle took me to shop in the town Large open outsourced restaurant and bar across from lobby also has outdoor seating Some nights live entertainment Food tasty Watch you bar bill They need to train bartenders as to standard prices of drinks Order the same drink on different days and it was priced $7, $8 and $9 for the same size, same drink I brought to their attention and they credited back difference Enjoyed seeing the wildlife outside the hotel Definitely would stay again if in area

What a beautiful hotel to stay in I spent just one night there for a friend’s wedding that was being held right on the premises and it is an absolutely beautiful place The staff was friendly, the rooms were huge, and the wedding was amazing

The breakfast was delicious before heading back home The customer service of the kitchen staff was fantastic I will definitely be back the next time I’m in the area

Bobbie Parris

Never again! Took shower first night smelled sulphur coming from shower water We could smell the same thing brushing teeth My hair looked dirty all day and had heaviness to it

Came back to room second day and room was not cleaned We were told have to request it So we requested for it to be cleaned for the next day The sink underneath was filthy when we checked in and after the room was cleaned, it still was! Raised toilet lid it was filthy when we got here filthy after cleaning! This is a Hilton and it should never have bad water or nasty bathrooms!Need to stay in area 2 more nights and will do so else where

We booked the hotel for our last 3 vacation days, and we really enjoyed it The rooms (double queen one) have enough space for up to 4 people Everything looked well decorated and was in a good condition

The staff is super friendly and they are helpful The pool is clean and you’ll also find a hot tub, which is pretty cool by the wayOne more thing: They offer you a GREAT breakfast buffet with a good variety of food

Jen Esparza

I recently stayed at this hotel and everything was as expected, clean sheets and room, comfy beds, good breakfast Excellent location, 2 miles away Universal! I would like to address I forgot in the safe some valuables and noticed about it a day after my checkout I was already in Miami when I called and the staff was very attentive and cordial

They confirmed they kept the items with them and I manage to send someone to pick them up Thank you Holiday Inn! Thank you to Roland and Maria for the great customer service!!!

WHAT happened to this hotel We were here a year ago From then to now it is ran down, terrible rooms, cracked ceilings, tubs clearly getting water behind the panels, wall patches everywhere, paint very poor job, no light in the suit areas, looks dirty, not taken care of

Then wasn’t told the elevators were to be worked on while we stayed here prior to paying I found a note by my room door on the floor explaining about elevators They took payment without giving the opportunity to make a choice if I wanted to stay after I was told elevators getting worked on one will be working while being worked on or you can use the stairs Not certain I want to ride an elevator while repairs are being made 😳Stairs are not an option for me due to medical reasonAlso didn’t notice until this morning there are grease spots on the headboard maybe from lotion or baby oil Not from us It’s so dark in this room you can’t see The sun is shining bright this morning Stuns on furniture Very unacceptableSome lights not working

Extremely disappointing We stayed there for 2 nights one of them being our wedding night This was 2 years in planning due to Covid

We had many family members and friends from out of town book the hotel as well Brought in more than 16 room nights for the property We worked this out with the property’s event coordinator The day before our wedding we checked in and the front desk agent was rude when we tried to check in early We had bumped into the GM, Kamal, later that day and expressed out excitement of our wedding day The next day, our wedding day, I talked to the lady at the front desk and mentioned that we’d be out of the room later that evening and if she would be so kind to set something nice up in our room while we were gone since it would be our wedding night She said she’ll see what she can do I also told her I would be more than happy to pay for whatever they added into the room I’ve worked into hotel for over 10 years both front desk and housekeeping leadership positions so I know this should be something they had planned since we had this plan for over 2 years We returned to the room later that night to nothing Our bed was made up and items ended up missing on our room including a wedding card that contained $200 as an early gift We didn’t notice it was gone until we got back home since a wedding consumes a lot of other thoughts in our minds When we wrote our review directly to the property the best response we got from the property was “ We do really apologize we could not make your stay nice and convenient Best Regards, Hotel Team” which is by far the biggest slap in the faceSadly, they also manage the Hampton next door so this area is not worth it and I would highly recommend a different property considering the lack of service and empathy this property has

Pats Soxfan44

The room was great!!! Arrived 23 minutes before check and got told by Virginia we had to wait till 3pm to check in No problem! She then checks two people in that had 3pm reservations No problem!!! Then they charge us a no show fee

When we arrived and left on time The desk guy couldn’t explain to us their mistake and gave us a hard time about giving us our money back Will avoid this place forever Would like to add we come to apopka once a month for a softball tournament

BED BUGS! WARNING!!! BED BUGS!!!We stayed the night with my daughter, she went to bed and woke up the next morning complaining of bug bites on her stomachWe were in a hurry and had to leave, I can not express how many bed bug bites were covering her body when we got to our location 15 minutes away, not 1 or 2, PLENTY of mothers were confirming that they were bed bugsI called the hotel and they said to send the pictures and they would check the room

They returned an email and said that the room was fine and that they would have the pest control company take care of itIf there is no issue with bed bugs why then do you need pest control??I sent pictures of the massive amounts of bed bug bites and still zero concern for my childDO NOT take your money and spend it at this hotel!I have sent them the pictures, they should be ashamed, especially after reading the reviews and seeing this is NOT the 1st case of bed bugs happening at this hotelYou do not take ownership of your business’s issues!CLEAR OUT THE BED BUGS

We had an overall great experience here Each staff member we interacted with was incredibly kind, welcoming, and helpfulWe did receive a room upgrade because of status/points and had a fun view of Islands of Adventure from the 21st floor in room 2115

Our door lock gave us a little trouble at first, but staff wasted no time in sending an engineer to help The service here was sincerely wonderful Thank you all!I think my favorite part of the room was the comfy bed After returning from a very full day of walking 20,000 steps in the parks I woke up rested and refreshedMy only complaints are minor and didn’t affect our experience that much overall 1: the halls and rooms are a little dated and would benefit from a little sprucing up For instance our loose/broken door jam, uneven flooring under carpet, fresh paint, etc This is all minor to me, and I believe was reflected in the price 2: We weren’t told about the shuttle to the parks when we checked in, or that we needed to register ahead of time to ride it I happened to see the sign at the desk, noted the time and showed up in the morning Thankfully the kind woman running that station at the desk noticed me in the morning and helped us get on the shuttle quicklyWe’d stay again and recommend it to others for the value and location!

Don’t forget to use ʜoᴛᴇʟʙᴏʟʟʏᴄᴏm when booking a hotel This web site will compare countless booking websites and normally will have rooms a lot cheaper compared to others! Thank me later on! This hotel is one of my favorites in the area

I have been coming here for years If you stay for a few days you won’t be let downI stayed for 2 nights with my boyfriend and had an amazing time The room was comfy, clean, and spacious We had a minor inconvenience but it was fixed very fast by Dante He was extremely helpful, informative, and very kind We had a great stay and plan on coming back soon!

Jessica Brown

The location was fantastic Staff went above and beyond to accommodate us They were great

The rooms are what you would expect for the price point It was fine for the night My only complaint – The beds were very bouncy and not super supportive Some paint peeling in the bathroom But overall the room was clean and the place was quiet (we had a room on the 18th floor) so we did not hear a lot of noise

This hotel was not originally our first Hilton choice but I am glad we stayed here The staff genuinely want to serve you They are very friendly and caring

The room was spacious The couch and chair could use a good upholstery cleaning The entrance to hotel is very easy to miss The left turn off a busy street isn’t always the easiest But as soon as you enter the doors, the staff greeted you with a smile and causal conversation I’d stay here again

Kenan Sulayman

Absolutely great place I checked in on the drive there and selected a room via the app, and checked out via the app when we left We received two bottles of water as gold members

The room was extremely spacious and the beds really comfortable The traffic outside wasn’t completely blocked out The view from the room was great The room supported digital key so I didn’t even need a room key card and I was able to share the digital key with my partner by sharing a linkI‘d definitely stay at this place again It’s a great example of how a hotel should be

Emilie R. Beecher

We were very happy with this hotel The staff were friendly and helpful Complimentary breakfast was great

The location near Disney worked out really well – there were plenty of restaurants and entertainment within walking / driving distance right on the same road too This is a great choice for families and those looking to do Disney Would recommend!

A bit dated, but a good hotel The rooms were clean, the staff was nice, and the breakfast was tasty When our toilet clogged, a staff member came up right away to fix it

Unlike many of the other hotels in the area, which have a minimum check-in age of 21, this one has a minimum age of 18 This, coupled with its proximity to universal and decent prices, makes it a good choice for any younger travellers looking to visit

Ali A

If the hotel was a 2 stars hotel ( hotels categories) I would give them probably 5 or 4 starsBut, you pay a premium price for a cheap hotelIndeed, It has all things and many amenities required for a 3stars hotel class, however all in the lowest quality/quantity

A gym, but very old and with outdated equipments, half not working at all!Breakfast, yes, very simple and limitedThe worst among all is their rooms, especially restroom and showers A cracked sink with very slow drain , the tub was damaged, and toilet flush was horrible The tiles were dirty tooInside the room, Pillows were not good at all, and carpet was dirtyPositive points?A bus service to the resortThe room air conditioner was good

Faisal Ghadially

The Best Western lives up to its reputation for a low cost hotel We did not expect much However, the elevators were not working and you expect that to work at a minimum

We had to lug our bags down the stairs No assistance was offered

I will definitely stay at this hotel again! To begin with, it is absolutely beautiful, very clean, and modern! Every staff member I interacted with was just as nice as can be! They provide a very generous hot breakfast, and there was even a staff member there helping everyone make their waffles 🙂 Most places these days have hardly anyone around to help with anything, so this was such a pleasant surprise! The price for the room was very reasonable as well I hope to stay here again very soon!

I’ve been coming here for a long time If you choose this place you definitely will love it I’m sure!My family and I have been staying at this location numerous of times since grand opening! The hotel and staff never disappoint! The cleanliness and amenities are superb! This recent stay our sink was clogged upon arrival and Shawn addressed and fixed the issue swiftly! Breakfast is always good and the grounds are well kept All staff that we came in contact with were nice and helpful! This is home away from home for us!!!

Christa O.

I was in charge of planning a trip for my coworkers and let me say from the staff to amenities we had a GREAT stay at this hotel! The room kept getting warm a little but you just have to figure out the ac system in the room The two guest representatives made me feel like a person and not a “guest” and I just loved their energy! They have such cute lobby and outside area to chill and enjoy your stay I loved how the room felt more like a suite with a couch,Closet (With a FULLL BODY MIRROR) and a microwave and a fridge

Let’s not forget the breakfast and presentation!!(need a little more season on the eggs but I won’t complain) Listen I’ve visited many hotels and this one has been definitely added to my listThank you so much for the comfortable stay 😊

The staff is very friendly, everyone we met, from the front desk to the housekeeping to the security guards and store cashiers The room was clean and the beds were comfortable We were on the seventh floor and weren’t bothered at all by any noise

Great little spot for a quick getaway Modest rooms but have a microwave and fridge Cleaning services were performed daily

Great price and close to everythingExtra 1/2 star given because I left some shirts behind and noticed a week later I called security and they indeed were found and held secure until my local friends could pickup

This was by far the best stay that I’ve experienced I’ve stayed in multiple hotels and they have never been this accommodating Friendly front desk

The breakfast was my favorite part The buffet style had a little bit of everything It was all fresh Nothing cold or stale From now on I will be taking my business to you guys I wish there was a later check out option but overall this was an amazing experience!

Brien Fincham

Hotel looked brand new, Lobby was very nice and front desk was super friendly, check in was easy Great Price, room was great and very clean Bed was very comfortable

Only complaint would be the in room coffee machine didn’t work but the free continental breakfast made up for it Omelets, Fresh make yourself waffles, sausage, breakfast potatoes and all the regular continental Breakfast stuff Overall stay was amazing and would definitely stay again, great location

Katy Snyder

Let me start by saying I have always been a loyal Hilton property guest My family and I love the Hampton inns however after this experience, I will never stay at any Hilton property again My 3 kids and I stayed at this hotel for 6 nights

On the fourth day of our stay we were at Magic Kingdom We came back to take a break before heading back out to go to the fireworks and catch a couple more rides While we were out I had a large amount of cash stolen The cash was not out in the open It was in a box buried in my bag Someone had to have rummaged through my things to get to it and took it all except the change and gift and credit cards This was our food money, play money and souvenir money Not only did we not get to go back to the park because I had to file a police report and wait for her to get fingerprints off our items I’m out all of our food/fun money Kelly who works at the front desk I have to say was extremely nice and empathetic which I appreciated but the manager Issac didn’t want to accept any wrong doing in the Properties part He told me the only person in the room had been there two months and was fully cooperative and denied any wrong doing He also told me the cameras they have in the hallways do not work He insinuated that I was lying Then got angry when I started to cry and accused me of being hostile and attacking him Issac could definitely benefit on some costumer service skills and how to treat others when they are being victimized and are nervous and scared He was extremely unprofessional and very condescending He also said I should have had travelers insurance Also to add to this the rooms upon arrival were not up to Hampton standards for being clean Dissatisfied, disappointed and angered to say the least!

Maya My

My overall stay was good The first day there, I experienced an issue at check-in which was quickly corrected by management I appreciate Management’s promptness to correct the issues

Breakfast is a free buffet with an array of good, hot, tasty options The room is small but the water is hot and the bed and pillows were very comfortable The AC is very loud and made the stay less desirable The refrigerator was also loud and the rooms heat would not exceed 78 on the thermostat I’m anemic and Orlando experienced some cold weather when I visited but I could only heat the room up to 78, which felt more like heat of 68 Some of the staff were pleasant but others seemed like they didn’t want to be there A lot of the staff did not speak English; especially housekeeping, which made it a bit more difficult to explain what was needed for the room All in all, we had a nice stay

James Long

The location is great and only a 30 minute walk to Universal Studios The staff is very friendly and they go out of their way to help you The rooms are perfect for 2 people and I noticed nothing in the room that was out of place

The AC is cold and I promise you in this heat it great! Huge breakfast in the morning and just great people I’m sure if you wanted to nip pick you could, but the price is spot on and worth it They treat you like family I can’t wait to go back!

Absolute nightmare My mother came down to visit recently and paid over $700 for a room for 3 days Their system was down, so we had to be escorted to the room in order to get in each time we had to leave the room, even just to get ice down the hall

EVERY SINGLE TIME Not only that, but apparently the pool closes at 10pm, but advertises 11pm I guess it’s perfectly fine according to them to let kids run around the lobby and pool, screaming, while their parents get drunk in the lobby at 10pm, though I used to come here over 5 years ago and it was great, but now it’s awful Rude staff; terrible service Would NOT recommend staying here unless you wanna pay an absurd amount for a mess

I was very impressed with the front desk clerks They were friendly and also willing to help They all had smiles on their faces, making you feel welcome

The room I stayed in was clean My bed was always made before I returned The hotel was not noisy; elevators and hallways were clean—no nasty odors I will stay there on my next visit

Nice clean hotel with excellent service This is my first stay at this hotel When we got to the room and turned on the heater, it wasn’t working

This happens to be the coldest weekend of the season here Called the front desk to alert them of the problem They sent a maintenance person right away The heater could not be fixed so we were immediately moved to another room The hot breakfast was good and so was the coffee

Lynn Puckett

The manager of this location is AWESOME! I had an issue with my upon check in and out with a possible pet fee for my registered and certified service guide dog I understood being asked upon check in as many people try to avoid paying fees for their pets I presented all my documents at check in

When I went to check out it was not a pretty scene when I was questioned againI reached out when I arrived home and the manager reached out personally to assure me this would never happen again at his location He assured me that all staff is trained in the handling of ADA service animals and apologized profusely for the incidentThe rooms are GREAT and very Comfortable I will try it again when the need arises The location offers safety and comfort in the Apopka area

I’m uncertain how this hotel has a four star review

I suppose my experience could be out of the ordinary, but it’s hard to believe we’re the only ones to have an unpleasant stay I booked this hotel because of its score, price and location The one and only thing it has going for it is it’s location It is very close to Universal Studios Unfortunately, for us, that is the only thing we liked about the hotel We found our room to be pretty run down The toilet ran and the shower leaked all day and night The sink was crack, as was the threshold passing into the bathroom The water temperature fluctuated pretty dramatically while showering The walls are paper thin and we could easily hear the neighbors next to us as well as the kids running around above us We heard doors slamming all day and night This made it difficult to get a decent nights rest, which is all we really wanted from the hotel Room service didn’t actually refresh the room each day They only grabbed the old towels and left a new stack on the counter

I have been staying at this Best Western for the last several years when I have the opportunity It may be an older property, but it is very well taken care of The rooms are very clean, and up to date

They even take the time to make characters out of your towels That shows that they care Disney properties used to do this but know they want to offer you a discount not to clean your room At this hotel from the time you check in until the time you leave they care about your stay Great job to the entire staff

Cara hollingsworth

I had reservations at a motel around the corner and the accommodations were terrible Decided not to stay there, drove around the corner to the Best Western and Emmanuel gave me the same price for a room that I found online He even upgraded us to a VIP room with an amazing view

The room was beautiful, clean, fully stocked with everything we needed The staff was amazing and helpful Will definitely be going back and staying here when we are in the are again!

We’ve stayed at Oakland Manor House numerous times Its proximity to Orlando is nice and has the ability to feel like you’re at home The home is a historic mansion and has an awesome history that the owner purposely kept intact so that those who visit and stay understand the history of this mansion

There are 2 separate kitchens and housekeeping kept me & my family stocked on the essentials We walked to the dock every night It’s a little piece of FL that has remained the same For those that want frills and commercial-style lodging with an ice machine, stay in town but if you want a genuine, history laden location with true charm–stay here!

The place is infested with ants It is run down There is no working ice mash one

The chairs in the coffee nook are falling apart and the stemwear leaks it is ikea old stuffAnts in the pantry, kitchen bedrooms porch upstairs – they are living I The wallsYou can easily hear the person staying In the innkeepers suite These glowing reviews below are so so old!The tree in front of the property is dead this is a massive oak Neighbor next door biker club shooting off air rifles Backyard which was supposed to be good for pets is a dump site, the garden off the grace room is the same way There is no grass just gravel and weeds Stay interrupted by “emergency “ workers who were called days before we checked in yet the work didn’t happen until five days later some emergency!! Loud and disturbing we left to work at the library!No tv connection and we had to carry the tv from the sun room into the house Old linens which had ants so we stripped the beds and put our own on and then we were accused of damaging this moth eaten bedspreadAnnoying security lights (yellow) which for some reaso were on a couple nights Could not shut them out as the blinds didn’t close I That room Shower heads clogged A c unit I Grace suite very noisy as was the ceiling fan Water pouring from the ceiling and puddling on the floor damaged our property Water sealing from the walls!! Owner a bit demented as well I never spoke to her but she claimed Some pretty defaming throngs about me after I asked air bnb for a refund Look at the limited nimrod reviews before you agree to rent at this s holeAudrey minion appeared on property several times without telling us first She upset my service dog which is weird he is trained to smell drugs and he went off on her Owners acknowledged ants coming out of the electrical sockets in the kitchenIt’s a mess no attention has been paid to this smelly property in years

Audrey Ukena

Response to the fake name that described The Oakland Manor as an ant invested, walls seeping, damage to property lady you are violating the true rights of people to leave a legitimate review about a place

You are not who you say you are and you are only trying to degrade an honest business only to gain some sort of notoriety or compensation for your own personal losses in your own lifePlease do not bring fake comments into an honest review area, you are insulting ALL of us who need a truth worthy commentary Please consider this “whatever her name is” untrustworthy and very dishonestThankU

We had a great experience as usual We stayed at a Universal – View room in a high floor and it’s a great view, specially at night You can even see the fireworks from your room! It’s so worth it to book a room like this

Their beds and pillow are super comfy The room was very clean, and the staff is super nice and attentive, they are on top of your needs and help you right away Housekeeping service is available but you have to reserve a day prior to get your room cleaned, so keep that in mind when you stay to plan accordinglyThe Lobby area is very nice and very convenient with all the stores they have where you can basically find anything you wantThe closeness to Universal is incredibly convenient and amazing! You should also be aware that parking for your car costs around 26$ per night and it’s a little more expensive if you use valet parkingI really really enjoyed my stay and I have nothing negative to say from my experience this opportunity I stayed there


I was impressed for it being only a 3 star, the service and my experience was definitely more than 3 stars The sunshine Cafe for breakfast has delicious food at the buffet No its not complimentary and that’s because the quality is much better and worth the cost, Vinh and Jim were very considerate and friendly waiters, they even let us take fruit and coffee to go

The check for the Cafe and American Grill & bar can be charged to your room which is super convenient The bar even let me take the wine glass upstairs to my room They have a shuttle to Universal parks, we also walked to the park too since it wasn’t too far (15min), walking avoided the large crowds with the round security section too The pool is open later than other hotels I’ve been too and really big along with their jacuzzi with a tiny water park for the kids We opted to have room service daily, it was nice to be given that option We also got a cookie from the front desk when checking in The food at the American Grill is great quality, I had the steak and veggies They have an ice cream shop inside as well Great experience, great service, I highly recommend and can’t wait til my next stay

Aqua Hold

Friendly staff Cool temp and clean room

Great amenities Beautiful, relaxing scenery and grounds For tasty dining I’d strongly suggest their on-site restaurant “American Grill”I did not partake in using the pool during the day Where as, from the view of the area from my roomthere was not much shaded area or umbrellas for my useHowever for the most part, my stay with Double Tree was very comfortable and pleasant

I had a wonderful experience at this hotel It was very clean, the rooms smelled fresh, and the A/C worked so good! I keep my house on 70, and with the room A/C set on 70 it was perfect! The showers had good water pressure and got nice and hot The pool area was awesome, loved that the hot tub was off to the side and not super close to the pool, it made it more relaxing

The bartender, Colin was great He made amazing drinks and was a funny guy I didn’t get the chance to eat the breakfast, but I did eat dinner there one night and the burger and fries were so good! I would definitely come back to this hotel You also can’t beat the location, only 6 minutes to all the universal parks

Earl Mary

Me and my daughter and grandson love our room and the hotel The people there are very friendly and very helpful to your needs Breakfast buffet is awesome

They have a swim pool where my grandson’s friend and family came and they had a ball playing swimming in the pool Wonderful people and the staff there is awesome too We had to leave on a Sunday and clerk at the desk asked about our stay there and we yold her we did not want to leave But she said, you be back here with us You better believe it we be back there at that hotel

Seth Melisano

Room was roomy and clean, if a little dated, and the beds were comfortable Hotel lobby was nicely decorated and the staff was nice and very helpful with our questions Registering for a bus to Universal was simple and the buses were always on time

The best part was no parking fee A very affordable and welcoming stay, especially for those visiting Universal Studios
