We had booked this place for 4 nights - they day before the travel - we decided we wanted to extend it for 1 more day - Angie at the front desk was gracious enough to give us the same rate. The check in process was quick and efficient. They even had some toys for my 2 year old. We checked into our room and found that a couple of lights didnt work and the sheets were torn. She quickly moved us into another room and arranged for a crib which i had requested and removed some furniture to create some room for our toddler. Overall - superb job by Angie.
The location is awesome - 5 minute drive to any park in Disney - back roads to Animal Kingdom - the hotel itself is a little difficult to locate - but once you get a hang of it - its perfect - everything close by....restaurants, gas stations, gift shops, grocery, etc....
The room itself was a little old and tired - some light fixtures didn't work - the housekeeping was great on some days and bad on others - hair left in the tub, etc. But since we were on a purely Disney trip - we were out of the room by about 9 AM and came back only at around 8 PM - so the luxury factor (or lack thereof) was no issue for us.
The breakfast was decent - they had scrambled eggs every day - and alternated between biscuits and gravy and sausages. Then they also had the usual suspects - muffins, bread, bagel, waffles, cereal etc - very adequate especially when you are trying to fill up and head to the parks.
Overall, a nice safe location for Disney visit. They also have a complimentary shuttle to the parks but we didn't use it since we did not want to be bogged down by their timings. If you don't plan to spend a lot of time in the room and want a nice, clean, decent place to sleep close to Disney - this hotel is perfect.
