We always travel around in Florida, staying at various different hotels on the way, and this Rosen Inn is better than most of them (and cheaper too). There is security at the entrance, which is an impressive start, the reception area is large, and the staff are friendly and efficient.
The rooms are a decent size, and clean. You pay extra for the breakfast buffet, which is far more comprehensive than the complementary breakfasts that you get in more expensive hotels, and special mention must go to Joan, Luiz and Margret in the Palms Restaurant , along with Douglas, the Lite Bites Manager.
The Fitness Suite is roomier than some, well equipped and we’ll maintained.
One evening, whilst in the bar, I decided to try some food. I had a vegetable roll, which I enjoyed, but as the beers I was drinking gave me the nibbles, I ordered chicken tenders and fries, which were also good.
The hotel also has an impressive and well maintained pool area.
You will struggle to find a hotel that has as much to offer as the Rosen at anywhere near the price.
We requested a room on one of the top floors and they were more than willing to accommodate us. Clean. Quiet. Food was delicious every morning. Easy access to popular attractions along International Dr. We loved being able to walk across the street to the cute little ice cream shop. We never remembered to book the shuttle. Nice clean pool. The arcade area was so much fun.
