Clean, friendly, exactly what you need
This hotel is great value for your money. When in Orlando all you need is a clean room with a decent shower and this is exactly what you get for your money. The hotel has all the necessities you would need and if you could think of anything that the room doesn’t have, there is a shop downstairs for anything you may need. The hotel offers buffet breakfast at a cost which was amazing. The hotel is in a great location with plenty of places to eat close by. Point Orlando has a variety of shops in for you to enjoy. Perfect hotel for our stay.
We stayed here for 2 weeks with our 17 yr old granddaughter,we had a fantastic stay. We last stayed here 7 yrs ago when her mum and dad got married in Orlando and liked it so much we knew we had to stay here again. The beds and pillows are so comfortable, great for after days on end at all the parks. The rooms are very well equipped with fridge, microwave and coffee machine, take tea bags as we used it for hot water. Shower was good and air con great. All staff were so nice and the maids were all so cheery, made you feel very welcome. The hotel is in a fantastic location, right across from all eating places for drinks/eats. You get pool towels which are available in a wee hut at pool side. Laundry facilities are good, located on certain floors on each block of rooms. Ice machines also on certain floors. We had breakfast twice in hotel, which were good, but didn’t have food at night so can’t comment, but restaurant was always busy for dinner. We are planning on returning again to Orlando and definitely planning staying again at the Rosen Inn at Pointe Orlando.
