Stayed for 2 nights. Visiting Walt Disney with small kids. Checked in early without any charges, that was bonus cause we were coming from far and needed to get a room to sleep right away. Clean friendly place to stay. Beds and pillows comfortable. Staffs knowledgeable. Will stay again. Restaurants, outlets, and Walmart near hotel. Very nice pool and gym.

Best Hotel because they have a hot tub waterfall, like standing the shower for hours. The food is excellent, both the breakfast and the late night pizza. The place is recently renovated and looks new. The rooms are neat, clean, and lots of supplies. The hotel is centrally located between the Disney parks, Seaworld, and Universal parks--all within 15 minutes.... More

This was our first stay at this hotel and we couldn't have been more pleased. The rooms were always clean, the staff was always smiling and went out of their way to talk to us. They always called our 3 year old princess which I thought was very sweet! We ate at the breakfast buffet every morning which was a... More

We stayed 4 nights at this hotel, mainly to visit the attraction parks. Basically, this is where the hotel is good for. It is close to Disney and centrally located to visit Seaworld, Universal, etc. For the rest nothing special. Nice pool. The rooms are out dated, worn out but clean. The hallways are definitely not clean. Staff is very... More

Back to Orlando for business and stayed here. This hotel is very nice and the employees are great as well. The hotel is very comfortable from the time you walk in. You feel safe and the rooms are clean. Nice place.

This is my second stay in this hotel (the first one was in October of 2013). Having been a Marriott Rewards member since 1996, I have stayed almost exclusively at Marriott properties (and affiliated chains) all over. So, naturally, I like the company and I really want to like this hotel. It's very close to the Disney parks and five... More

We use this hotel when we are driving through Orlando and want to spend time at Downtown Disney. The proximity is great. The rates are usually very reasonably. We received a courtesy upgrade to a suite on the first floor right off the pool last time which was wonderful. This is a great hotel. Breakfast buffet is good. We have... More

We've been to Orlando about 14 times in the last 10 years, staying sometimes in a Disney hotel, but usually in an off property location. You should stay here.
