Two parents & two teens stayed 6 nights in late March. Just needed a place to sleep, and I was drawn to the pools and hot tub in addition to the CHEAP price ($35/nite).
I was grossed out by the reviews about dirty carpet, so I asked for a room with no carpet, knowing that these are the remodeled rooms. Bingo! Our room was very clean, with tile floors. VERY roomy for the four of us. Microwave and refrig included. Bed was fine, linens were clean, towels were plentiful. We had a ground floor room and dd not have any bad problems with bugs or reptiles. Some tiny ants across the floor once in awhile. As mentioned in other posts, outlets were "loose" and often had to be "jiggled" to work. Bathroom door would not close, front desk said they'd fix it, but we dealt with it.
Nice to have three pools to choose from - whole place was mostly empty while we were there. Hot tub was HOT! Laundry worked well. Covered pool was gross. So dirty/cloudy you couldn't see the bottom of it. Other two were fine. Hot tub DID NOT smell like chlorine, but was clear water.
It seems that this hotel is trying to cuts some corners to keep costs down. Seems they aren't using chemiclas in their pools. The cups in the room were not packaged - they were just from a pack of styrofoam cups. The grounds were not well kept aside from those near the lobby. The grass around the pool/hot tub area was more than knee high, and the hot tub area was full of weeds. Little things that tell me the hotel pays attention to detail were overlooked.
On the plus - it's an adequate cheap place to stay that is VERY convenient to Disney. Clean and comfortable, just not fancy.
BTW - check out the "nature area" - it's gorgeous!!! They have fire pits and a sandy beach with chairs to use!
