I didn’t think my never-ending quest for cheap, comfortable hotels near theme parks would require a late-night run for band-aids and Neosporin. The La Quinta Inn International Drive North changed that.

Costing a mere $67 per night for a May 2023 stay through a Priceline Express, I should have guessed this hotel was too good to be true. 

Dingier and more outdated than hotels at a similar star level in the same area near Universal Orlando, scraping my leg on an oddly-exposed part of a bed frame was really just the last straw with this bad experience.
