"It was just OK for the money. The first night very noisy; OK the second and third. For the money I really have no complaints. This was a business stay for me not pleasure so if it were pleasure would have rated higher."

"I asked for a fridge, expecting it had a freezer, but it did not.I wanted 2 beds, one was in the wall, but when it was lowered the room was cut in half.The manager was exceptionally nice and saved our stay at this motel. And the landscape was excellent, as were the outside looks of the motel."
Howard from Lutz, FL US rated Knights Inn Maingate Kissimmee 7 out of 10 on March 22, 2005
"This motel is very old and not clean. We have flea bites after staying only 2 nights. The furniture is ratty,the beds sag, the blankets,pillows,towels were old. The towels were very small and felt like sandpaper. Most of the light bulbs were blown. The neighborhood was questionable and we couldn't wait to go home. I would take this motel off your list and not reccommend it to your worst enemy!"
