I didn't expect much, but did expect furniture Feb 10, 2016
I would give this less that 1 bullet if I knew how to make it less. The "reduced" rate I had was over $60 a night, not the $25 rate I've seen attached to this place, plus the photo's of room and public areas attached (not mine - probably hotel photo's) are all from several years ago, not current photo's. My photo's are CURRENT. March 2015. I checked in during 2nd shift for the front desk staff. 1st room was on backside of hotel, had non-working phone, refrigerator, microwave, box tv, table, chairs & beds. (What I expected to find) Not in room 30 seconds when back road car rolls by the hotel with big boom box blasting, the back of hotel only had MY car parked there, immediately I did not feel SAFE so I asked for a room on the front of hotel. Got one with 2 beds, box tv and a bureau with 3 half drawers and other side had one shelf. No refrigerator, no microwave, no chair(s) no table - just beds and bureau of and nightstand. I asked for these items - no table, no chair available. Front desk stated no room has microwave and refrigerator. I stated there was in the first room - I did not imagine them. Still nothing to be done. Walking about I glanced into other rooms that were empty but blinds pulled back - was not really surprised to see most of the rooms I could view had table, chairs, microwave and refrigerator. A downstairs room had stack after stack of chairs and at least one refrigerator and microwave (no beds) this was storage (see photo) - certainly should have offered one to me - at least a chair!. The outlet that touches the mattress/wall at head of bed didn't have a faceplate. See photo. I'd hate to think of a young child's hand/fingers dangling between mattress and wall and the innocent sleeper getting electrocuted. The tub was rust stained and plug just sealed it, broken so couldn't cover drain and let tub drain during showers. Towels are thread bare and stained. Carpet is filthy. I bought slipper socks, hand sanitizer and sanitizing wipes to wipe down room entry handle, remote, etc, it was pure nasty. Check in guy was friendly, but following scripts he had no doubt been taught. "Rooms are being 'renovated'" Travelers tip: Real renovation is the dumpsters, workers, parking spots taped off, debris, new stuff being visible here and there. Nope, no workers, no new mirrors, carpet, beds, linens, furniture, wall hangings, NOTHING. Beware - renovation is CODE for we aren't keeping up with the rooms, we are pillaging from rooms and putting the pillaged (old) stuff in other rooms to keep those rooms still renting. By the way, no breakfast, I'm sure they can't afford to give away food. You can use the tiny microwave in the lobby, but no paper towels, napkins, plastic utensils will be provided - bring your own, Also can use wifi ONLY in lobby.

Coffee? Sure ---- the sign says $1.00 or $1.50 coffee. I ask for $1 size - sorry NO LIDS for that size. (bet if I said OK no lid - I'd be told don't have CUPS that size.) Basically ALL coffee is $1.50 . He started pouring something from a container into the cup and when done asked me if i wanted FOUR sugars (wow that's alot of sugar) I asked what he just put in my cup. CREAMER - I told him NO creamer he dumped it out and put in 2 sugars in same cup (good thing I'm not allergic), he poured the coffee and put the lid on and added a straw. without the plastic sleeve. All the time I'm wondering how long since he washed his hands. He wouldn't let me make or pour my own coffee.

Since I don't have refrigerator and I had expected it - I'd brought my oatmeal and blueberries so I could stay on my diet. Now I have to keep it on ice. 2 out of 3 ice machines are broken, I need quarters for vending machines and soda. I ask daytime guy for $3 quarters - him "you don't need that much" me - thinking he didn't understand $3 reworded my request - 12 quarters. him - you leaving? Me - no, I'm a guest do you need to seem my pass key? Him, "no no, 12 quarters too much, enough for a week, you get more ice for less money at store" me - I'm not going out. him - I'll check drawer. Guess they LOVE to argue with the customers over requests for QUARTERs to use in their broken down machines. I finally got my 12 quarters to keep my blueberries and bottled water on ice in the sink - about 4 quarters a day for 3 days. No didn't use them on vending machines, tried to get 1 soda out of 3 different machines, using crisp dollars and quarters. NOPE, none worked an EPIC FAIL. My opinion - this place should be condemned as unfit. Best advice ----- DO NOT BOOK the Continental Plaza Hotel, Kissimmee, FL. 34747. By the time you get there they might have locked their doors an you will be out of your money, If they are still there when you arrive you should expect it to be worse than the condition I found it. Oh and the LOBBY - OMG looked like someone had sat in the seats and urinated, huge stains on most "seating" spaces. NAAAASSSSSTTTY. inside heat/ac unit so loud, could not run at night, every time it boomed on I woke up. watching TV had to adjust TV volume up when running and volume down when it cycled off.
