2nd visit, 3rd planned!!!
Well, where do I start…. I can not fault this hotel in the slightest…. perfect location, great rooms, staff so friendly and helpful. The little shop with the seating area is great and zebra bar is fun and welcoming. The pizza from zebras is so nice so be sure to try one. There is a free shuttle that takes you to Universal at different time slots, just need to book it at reception. The I-trolley is right outside and can take you to both shopping outlets and up and down international drive. Also the normal buses can take you to SeaWorld and Discovery Cove and it is so cheap.
We have stayed twice at this hotel and I would never stay anywhere else. You feel so safe and welcomed.
Roll on September for when we visit again.
Thank you Rosen Inn@ Pointe Orlando for always making our holiday unforgettable.
I just keep coming back to Rosen!
My last review of the Rosen was posted in February 2018 and I have not long returned from another stay at this hotel with a need to post a further review. Once again I have had a very comfortable and extended stay at Pointe Orlando this time being resident for over 3 weeks. I had requested the same room as last time I stayed and was granted it so enjoyed a view of the pool and was away from any passing traffic on the I-4. You simply cannot get better value for money if you stay here. Not only is it in an excellent location on International Drive but it has all that you need with free shuttle service to Universal and a 24-hour delicatessen. As a senior I was able to enjoy a reduced rate in the dining room and a friend and I felt the food of such good quality and so well prepared that we ate there on several occasions. If you do not want the buffet breakfast then a short walk up the street gets you to Denny’s which seems to work better for some families. The rooms are still completed with microwave fridge and coffee maker and of course have air conditioning. You could do a lot worse than stay at Rosen and I am definitely a strong advocate for this particular hotel. My thanks to the staff who helped to make my stay exceptional.
