This Hotel was labeled as a 4 star and I suspect this is because of its proximity to the resort amenities. However, on the property itself, I would only rate this as a 2.5 star based on the lack of hotel services and the front desk open with limited hours. As others have stated you have to check in at another property across the resort and then drive to your building/hotel.
There is a new shuttle service to ferry folks around the resort, but when one has to wait 30-45 minutes for the shuttle to arrive...its a waist of time. You can get in you car and drive to another part of the resort in minutes. For me, 15 minutes wait max...oh, we never did see the shuttle at the stop we needed, just saw them driving around.
The hotel is very clean and well decorated despite the age of the building and the location is stunning.
