This hotel is located in the Hunter's Creek area of Kissimmee. It is close to area attractions, theme parks, the outlets, and other Kissimmee hotels. Amenities include a heated pool and shuttle to the attractions. But the highlight of this hotel is the koi pond, undoubtedly designed to go with the tropical theme. It provides a calming, tranquil oasis in what is otherwise a budget hotel in an industrial area. Inside there are more fish tanks with more tropical fish, including one Oscar. They are all behind the hotel counter, where the customer service associates are very friendly and helpful.Recommended for:

This hotel has lots of distinct pros and cons. On the plus side, it's positioned far from the busy road, away from traffic and noise, and the staff are friendly and helpful. It's also modest, cost-effective, and perfect for independent guests who just want to relax on the patio or take a quick dip in the pool. The rooms, however, are outdated and reminiscent of an old comedic road trip movie. This hotel is a suitable stop if you're looking for somewhere quiet and relaxing to crash for the night, but I wouldn't recommend it for an extended vacation.Recommended for:

With a pretty nice exterior surrounded by large, freshly trimmed bushes and palm trees, I had a good feeling about this hotel as I drove up. However, my expectations were squashed when I walked up to the front desk. There was no line, and the attendant just looked up at me and then looked back down without saying a word or smiling. The property seems a bit older, but the pool area is clean and has pretty landscaping with a grassy area, well-maintained bushes, and a large tree that provides much needed shade in the Florida sunshine. There was a room just off the lobby with a few arcade games, vending machines and a table that looked like a fun place for kids to hang out for a bit.Recommended for:

If I had family coming down and looking for a deal, this is one of the first places I would recommend. It is hard for a hotel to pull off the vintage look without looking outdated, but Howard Johnson has such a nice mom & pop feel to it. This is exactly what people have in mind when they want a cute little motel to flop in, but one you seldom find. The pool is tucked away in the center of the building, a rare layout that feels so much safer. The staff is very welcoming. In all the best ways, it feels kind of like staying at Grandma’s house.Recommended for:
