I stayed here with my family for 3 weeks between July and August. The previous reviews describe the rooms and the tired looking but functional kitchen units. I can confirm the carpets have been changed and the decor is generally okay but not execeptional. The rooms do now contain safes. Staff were very friendly and the rooms were cleaned daily... More

I stayed at this hotel for a couple of nights because of its proximity to downtown disney and universal studios as well as the good reviews here on tripadvisor. Maybe just bad luck or timing, but when I first arrived at the hotel, I literally waited over 10 minutes before someone appeared at the front desk. When someone finally did... More

We've just returned after 2 weeks from our second stay at this hotel and were equally impressed as we were on our first visit 2 years ago. This hotel is perfect for families and very accommodating, nothing is ever a problem. All staff: front desk, cleaners, kitchen.......etc, that are associated with the hotel are very friendly, professional and pleasant. The... More

Recently stayed at the Hotel for 3 weeks and honestly do not have a bad word to say about it. The location of the Hotel is perfect being really close to Disney and the interstate but also just off the main road so that you can easily walk to local diners/restaurants in the immediate locality which are good value for...

This hotel was very nice and a great place to stay. Our room was at the back of the hotel which was very quiet. The location of the hotel was very good also. The only negatives were the remote controls for the TV's didn't work. There were 2 remotes but only one worked for both TV's. Also Tim at the... More

On arrival we were very impressed with the facilities and the room. When we tried to use several of the items in the room, such as phone, alarm clock, ice maker, or shower, we found that they either didn't work or had problems. When this was reported to the front desk and manager they went out of their way to... More

One of the best hotels my family and I have stayed in. They really take pride in the cleanliness of their suites. We stay in a two bedroom suite and could not find fault at all. Staff was very welcoming and nice. They played with our children and offered a great hotel reception. Just wished the pool stayed open longer!!!

My family was there for a week. Suite had a fully stocked kitchen. Nice staff. Clean suites and cleaned well each morning. Suites have a safe, dish washer, good view, clean and great bed. It was about 1/2 way between Universal Studios and Epcot, say 6 miles each way. Free parking. Walmart just 3 miles up the road. Malls close... More
