  • Nice area to explore. Most of the time nice in quiet deeper in but then gets ruined with the noise of the ATVs and dirt bikes. Don't get me wrong I'd love to be out there doing that too. I usually air down some on the dirt roads just to make it smoother but it's not needed at all
  • Thank you to staff for a very nice and helpful costumer service. The hotel is amazing our room 2 is wonderful with a courtyard view. The rooms are quiet and very clean. We are very happy we found the Orlando South Orange Blossom Trail hotel for our mini vacation. .
