We arrived early (noon) and the only room option was facing the Interstate at the rear of the property, so since we wanted to get to the park quickly (& weren't planning on spending much time in our room, except to sleep) we took it. I did read the earlier reviews, and brought earplugs! So the traffic noise was not an issue for me (the rest of the family never noticed the noise at all, we were on the 6th floor). I thought the $11 valet was great! No issues trying to park the car, just drive up, give them the keys and check-in. We were on our way to the Park within 30 minutes of arriving.
There are 3 restaurants nearby: Mimi's to the right (I thought was nicer than Millies), Millies, and McDonalds. There is also an iHOP at the traffic lights where you need to cross to get into the park. I'm thinking its a 5-10 minute walk to the front gate.
We hit the pool a couple of times (be warned, the pool gets shaded around 4pm at this time of the year). It was a basic pool, with a tiny hot tub. Based on the size of the hotel, I thought it should be bigger, but we didn't have a problem getting loungers. Pool towels were well stocked.
The rooms were recently updated with all the basics. We requested extra towels, which came quickly. Overall no complaints, and based on what we paid, we would certainly stay here again.
