“Best budget hotel BY FAR!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

I can't believe how cheap this was! The rooms were new and spotlessly clean, as was the lobby and the bathroom was lovely. We had stayed in the Hilton only a week earlier and the standard of the room was the same. This may not be luxurious, but it certainly does the job. You would need a car to get around, but it is only about 20mins from the parks. Best of all, it is only a 10-15 minute drive from Manny's Chophouse (see reviews of this!). Definitely recommended!!

Very pleasantly surprised!! We had 2 rooms for one night right across from the breakfast room. We had concerns about noise and we were late sleepers. No noise at all. Great breakfast spread and plentiful, clean and busy!!

Rooms were spacious and clean. Bedding was fresh and room amenities were appropriate.

Great location and I will be back. Great group facility.

This is likely the best value I have found for clean, budget friendly hotels in the area. For the price I paid as a Choice Rewards member (free to join) as well as for booking in advance for the days we stayed (3/24-26), I have to say this hotel is an outstanding value. Thank you TripAdvisor and contributors, because it was the high ratings that made me comfortable with booking here. The room was clean and up to date with flat screen t.v., microwave, fridge, internet. Breakfast, which is included in the price of the hotel and offers hot and cold items was nice although the dining area is very small. Every staff person I came in contact with from the front desk to housekeeping delivered service with a smile. Another plus is that there are no resort or other hidden fees. We will definitely be back when visiting the Disney Parks again in the coming months.

Room Tip: We were on the 3rd floor facing the highway and could hear big trucks as they passed at times. Ask...

THE BAD:
- Carpet in 2nd floor hall was loose and wrinkled; almost tripped over it numerous times.
- Carpet in room was stained and had iron burns.
- Internet was the slowest I have EVER found at a hotel. I speed tested it: 0.19 mbps. That's slower than many dial-up connections and literally 100 times slower than my internet connection at home. I was unusably slow.
- Hotel had no system for trouble shooting internet. I called front desk on a Sunday to let them know about the internet, and she said there was nothing she could do; that she would have to ask the GM and he wasn't there that day.

THE GOOD:
- Other than the carpet, the room was clean.
- Bed was comfortable.
- Updated room w/ flat screen TV.
- In-room fridge/microwave (at least in the room I stayed in).
- Breakfast was good for what it was.
- Staff was friendly.
- Price was modest compared to similar options.

We've stayed at this hotel for a week at a time for the past 3 years and it has stayed constant in it's cleanliness and maintaining the rooms. Due to last minute health issues we asked for a ground floor room and were given an upgraded room on the ground floor at no extra cost. The hotel check clerks were consistently pleasant and helpful. The room was very nice, clean, clean smelling, sheets, towels were good quality, pillows and bed were incredibly comfortable - especially for a hotel. Also, this hotel is just 15 minute drive West of Disney World. An easy drive to Disney World but it is nice to be away from the heavy traffic of Disney area for other restaurants and stores. Will plan to stay there again next year!

First off I will say this the staff is friendly , the manager very nice , and the hotel was just built a few years ago. So what's the problem? Lack of up keep. The hall ways are getting very dirty. Common areas ( tables by the elevator ) you can write your name in the dust. The out side parking area littered with trash. Rooms becoming beat up & no one cleaning stains etc. The bottom line is no one is cleaning this hotel. It's a shame that someone paid good money to build this and is letting it go down the toilet so fast. We left something in a room and realized it after we were down the highway. We called right away to check if they could collect the item & return it to us via mail. They did find our item , but it took 3 days of us calling back to get a " yes we have it & we will mail it to you" then from that point 3 weeks to receive it in the mail. We live 60 miles from the hotel. Although the manager was very nice , it seems there is lack of management in this hotel. If I owned this hotel I would fire head of housekeeping , whoever takes care of the grounds , and unfortunately the nice manager as everything should stop at his desk. I can't say we will stay again & and that's sad. A new hotel with very good rates & a nice staff should not be getting bad reviews. It's just pure laziness when it comes to maintaining this property. Sorry guys but its the truth. The only other thing is its very hard to get to off the highway . Really wanted to give a good review as the staff is very nice but it is what it is : (

I posted a very positive review right after this propoerty opened in 2010, and continued to stay here on business for the next year or so. It truly was the nicest Comfort Inn I had ever experienced. I was back in the area last week, and stayed for one night. I was very surprised at how worn the facility looks after just two years. The carpets are dirty and stained, and overall the place just doesn't appear as clean as it should. There were lots of little things, most of them housekeeping related, that needed attention in my room. I noticed they have the same general manager, who was always quite friendly and professional, so I am not sure what the problem is, but I cannot reccommend this hotel as highly as I did in 2010. Still a good value though, if you just need cheap Disney-area lodging.
