Great location but they don't seem to make any effort to keep the place up. The breakfast was a joke and the girl behind the desk made no effort to make it even slightly better. The place was a mess and there wasn't enough milk for the kids cereal. The parking lot was a mess with trash on the ground... More

This hotel is centrally located with easy access to everything. Very friendly and responsive staff. WiFi has apparently been updated since the last time I was here, as the connection was good. Could use a few updates to the rooms, but very clean. Breakfast is small but adequate.

Great friendly and respectful staff, free breakfast, and our neighbors were from Seattle too- visiting Disney with their kids, grandparents, and other family members. It was quiet- a home away from home. They made several special accommodations for us when... More
