Second Great Visit
Just returned from our second visit to the Rosen Inn International. Very clean, well-maintained with friendly, helpful staff, Buffet plentiful, well laid out and good variety. 2 swimming pools, plenty of parking. Great situation just off I4. Would recommend to anyone – particularly families.
Another great experience
Back to the Rosen Inn International for another great holiday. This hotel is perfectly situated for us, we don’t hire a car and has plenty of eating options within walking distance and right near to an I ride bus stop.
I cannot fault the hotel. Very comfy with two double beds in the room and we had a very large bathroom this time. Also in the room are an iron and ironing board, fridge, coffee maker and TV. We did switch the TV on on a couple of occasions when we needed a bit of chill time and there are plenty of channels. Coffee bags, sugar and creamer topped up daily by housekeeping who do a great job all round.
The Lite Bite is perfect for snacks and treats and for anything you may have forgotten in your suitcase.
The hotel restaurant does a nice breakfast buffet – the usual you would expect, bacon, sausage, hash browns, beans, scrambled egg, omelette, grits, oatmeal, fruit, yoghurt, pancakes, French toast, waffles etc and also includes hot drink and juice. Evening meal is handy and tasty if you don’t want to venture too far, and again, plenty of choice for everyone. Examples include roast beef au jus, baked fish, baked chicken, chicken tenders, mashed potatoes, veggies, salad bar, rolls and a selection of cold desserts, gateau and cake and then usually a hot cobbler.
Staff across the board are friendly and welcoming. I can’t imagine staying anywhere else when in Orlando as this ticks all boxes for me
