“NOISY AC, rude housekeeper. Very close to Disney”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

Stayed here three nights in June 2013. VERY loud AC, even on low - couldn't sleep with it on.

Rooms have microwaves and fridges. New flat screens and new furniture. Front desk employee seemed very nice.

We were running late and needed a few extra minutes to checkout - after 2 phone calls within ten minutes, a housekeeper very rudely knocked on the door and didn't want to wait to clean the room - she was looking inside to see how close we were to leaving, shaking her head.

Owner/employee threatened a $10 late checkout fee, even though I told her we slept in because of a leaf blower at 1 AM - she denied anyone owning a leaf blower and that it was the business next door. She basically didn't care. And still threatened the $10 late checkout.

I WAS going to add two more nights and I was going to give them 4 stars, but when you get nasty like that, forget it.

I would recommend because of proximity to Disney. But the whole area around this hotel is a ghetto tourist dump.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

This Super 8 is conveniently located at Old Town, Kissimmee. There is a bus stop outside the hotel and for $2 you can catch a bus directly to the Transportation hub of Walt Disney World. These buses run every 20 minutes but do make sure you know when the last bus is leaving the hub in the evening or the only alternative is a taxi to get back to the hotel,
The hotel is clean and comfortable. The guest laundry is conveniently located and the washers and dryers work well.
Breakfast was the usual donuts, pastries and cereals etc.

The hotel is set back off the main road with an information kiosk directly in front which is opened until 10;30 at night. There are several cheap souvenir shops either side of the hotel, which sells Disney souvenirs a lot cheaper than in the Parks, (Wal-Mart also carries official Disney merchandise, at reasonable prices). There are several restaurants, including a Dennys and an Irish Pub with in walking distance.
Old Town amusement park is across the road, which is where the nearest bus stop is on the return from the Disney Parks. There is also a Publix Supermarket 2 blocks away.

The rooms were clean and comfortable, although the décor is a little drab. Rooms have small fridges and microwaves. The rooms are quiet and the beds are comfortable so you can get a good nights sleep so you can wake up ready to take on Disney Parks, Universal Studios, Sea World or any other attractions, The pool area was clean and tidy but unfortunately it was too cold to swim when we were there,

The staff were helpful and very friendly with lots of local knowledge.

Our stay was for 13 days and we had a very pleasant stay at this hotel.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

The hotel is located at a convenient location close to Disney and Old Town but not easy to see from Irlo Bronson Blvd behind Dennys. The rooms are updated and the parking lot was just paved. When we came to the hotel we arrived on a Wednesday afternoon and there were not that many cars in the parking lot which was a concern to me and my family but the hotel did have additional guests eventually. If you do not mind the pool is located in the parking lot and behind Dennys. The breakfast was very limited. I would stay again at this location but request a room facing the pool vs. the courtyard as it was not convenient.

The hotel was cheap, clean, and only 10 minutes away from the Disney parks. There is also a Denny's just a 2 minute walk away and a publix right across the street. There is also a fun little fairground type attraction across the street with plenty of rides. The only negative I have to say about the place is that the person who works at the front desk always seems like he has an attitude, but other than that this hotel was money well spent.

The room was comfortable. However, there was a musky odour in the room. I had to purchase a deodorising spray for the room.
