Well, let me start with the best part of our stay was the restaurant in the hotel! We booked a family trip through Southwest. Something that I will never do again. I work at a hotel and customer service is the most important thing to our management, apparently not so at this hotel. We booked a family vacation over the... More

I believe that I should always start a review with the positive. The hotel rooms were clean, and above average by far. Each room was equipped with a kettle and tea making facilities and very comfy beds (although after the day I'd had, I probably could have slept on bricks to be honest). Now that the niceties are out of... More

This was a family vacation. Spent 1 night only. Hotel is close to Disney and many Florida attractions. Food choices are many in this area. Hotel is large and parking near rooms becomes very hard later at night. Room was OK but not very updated. Upon going to our room - had no remote for TV. Called front desk and... More
