if you plan on visiting Disney Parks this hotel is perfect. My room was clean. My wife complained about the shower not having enough pressure. It was a little weak perhaps because we were in the higher floors at least we had hot water to shower. beds were comfortable. Nothing too special about the rooms. FD Staff was friendly.

When I travel I always try to find the positives of my experiences. This hotel was very difficult to do so. We were late arriving and needless to say very tired. The staff at the front desk were very pleasant. I requested the top floor and they were very kind to assist. We tried to find luggage carts but they... More

My husband and I took a last minute trip to Epcot. He found this hotel on a travel website at a great price, which made us a little skeptical, but we booked anyway. We weren't expecting much. It was very busy when we arrived late in the evening. The gentleman who helped us was extremely friendly and helpful. The room... More

It was fine for the 1 night I was there, The décor is dated ,but the room was comfortable. The breakfast was just adequate. It was in a central location for all the parks and restaurants. I wasn't in the room very long to check it out in great detail,but for the money it was a good deal.
