Needless to say the hotel was good value for money except the rooms definetely need a lick of paint.
The location of the hotel was great as you were central to everything really. We hired a car so it was good. The corridors I must say really smelt of smoke although all the rooms were non smoking. The pool was okay.
We only stayed in the hotel one day as the rest of the holiday you spend in the theme parks or visting places.
We didn't visit the restuartant as we thought it was well over priced for what it worth.
Chilli's the mexian resturant is well worth a visit as is the Golden Corral and they were the best. Across the road is th Ponderosa that place should be shut down as it was terrible!!! Very Poor food.
If you leave a tip for the maid she will ensure there are plenty of clean towels every day for your needs.
All in all a nice place to stay.

The Bathroom was a bit small, but more than adequate for two adults.
The Location really couldnt have been better, it was a 3 minute walk from Wet'n'Wild, a 5 minute drive from Universal , and a mile from the prime outlets mall. it was also close to I-4 for both west ( Disney ( 15 minutes) and Tampa) and east ( Kennedy space center, Florida mall)
There were numerous places to eat very close and some bars as well.
The Bar in the hotel was very relaxing with 2 pool tables and the barmen ( Alan and Bill ) could not have been more friendly.
We never ate in the hotel , using the ponderosa across the road for breakfast.
I was there with some friends for a 40th birthday outing , but i intend to return to this hotel with my children in the near future.

Location was fantastic central to everywhere across the road from the ponderosa and wet n wild with lots to do in the evenings.
Staff were friendly and helpful, would definitely recommend the hotel breakfast, free child with paying adult, also the all you can eat buffet at the ponderosa was good, and the shogun Japanese restaurant on site is not to be missed.
A great holiday would definitely go back, a car is not essential but we hired one and it made our holiday.

We spent 3 weeks at the rodeway inn and had a great time, the hotel is at the top end of international drive near wet n wild.
Hotel was very clean considering it is a budget hotel(we usually go 4*) clean towels every day, maid service every day, bedding changed every week, staff were very helpfull & friendly, the pool area was nice & clean and the pool is heated, however the pool is not very big which is fine for this time of year.
We would go back to this hotel again

The rooms were cleaned everyday and the maids were very polite. You would always be able to get hold of a member of staff if needed at reception.
Most of the staff were friendly at all times but beware of the reception desk where you can buy your attraction tickets from, I think they try to get you to go to a timeshare and then get a free ticket to a park, sounds good but why waste a day of your precious holiday there's just to much to do as it is!
Also be careful if the hotel orders you a taxi, they dont look like proper taxis and always check the price before leaving.
There is not any real entertainment in the hotel just a bar with two pool tables but there is so much else to do in the area you will not want to stay in.
All in all a good hotel and this is not the sort of holiday where you will be there much and the pool was quite nice aswell.

The shuttle stopped just outside the hotel. Breakfast was cheap and better than the ponderosa. Reception staff were helpful as were the waitresses. (good source of information about parks and shops).
I wouldn't hesitate in staying there again. The only complaint was the pool was very small but who cares as wet n wild just across the road.

The rooms are good sized and are cleaned everyday, with fresh towels and bedding.
The breakfast in the hotel is good, better and cheaper than the Ponderosa and Shogun Japanese restaurant is very good and great fun. It is always busy and you need to book.
There is a large car park - you need to make sure you get a parking disc from reception or you will be towed away.
A taxi to Universal cost $7 and
