The place is old and crappy. We checked in after a long flight and found the tub unable to drain water. We had to argue for a room change wasting valuable time. Also, they charge a resort fee which was not mentioned anywhere. The continental breakfast coupon they gave us was for food that not only tasted old, not fresh,... More

This property is conveniently located off I-4 and near Disney. It is also close to Downtown Disney as well as convenient to plenty of other non-Disney stores and restaurants.

We were looking for a hotel with continuous free transportation to Disney. This fit the bill at hundreds of dollars less than they Disney resorts. Breakfast left a little to be desired, but it was free so I won't complain. I would stay here again the next time I go to Disney.

The best aspect of this hotel is the value for what you pay. It is very convenient because it is close to all disney attractions, in fact it is within the resort, which makes it really easy to move around without a car. It also has a relaxing pool to chill out after an exhausting day walking around the parks.... More
