Hotel stay was great. Was always clean when I returned to the room from the parks, bar is open until 12 AM daily which is a big plus, and the location is convenient and great. The staff was always nice, and the front desk was very, very helpful! Thanks!

The staff were wonderfully friendly and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable. I stayed here while I was attending the Zumba Instructor convention and coming in at the end of each full day of dancing and walking to this room was awesome!
