5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

Optimum location right off Disney property with shuttle to/from. Three outgoing shuttles to Disney Parks, two incoming. Would like to see another incoming back to hotel around 7 p.m., but we made it work. Ample food choices within the block: Burger King, McDonalds, Wendy's, CiCi's Pizza, Denny's. Also souvenir shops and Walgreens a short walk away. Hot-tub was VERY hot, with a whiff of natural gas in the air (unpleasant). Shower-heads a bit low for tall folks. Cell phone service and WiFi a bit spotty. Would like to see the addition of yogurt for a breakfast menu item. Front desk staff capable and generally friendly.

This is a nice clean and quiet hotel with interior rooms. Free parking with bright
lights at night. Check-in was easy & very helpful. The lobby is large with many seating options and three elevators. A Disney desk is also available to purchase tickets, pick up a shuttle schedule, etc. Since we walked in and booked our room before 9 AM, we were
invited to have breakfast. There is a nice selection of breakfast foods with plenty
of tables and chairs. An employee was manning the (3) waffle makers, so you were always
assured of receiving a nice HOT waffle. Our room was large, clean and quiet with
very comfy pillows and beds. Also a flat screen tv, refrig, micro, coffee maker, safe,
hair dryer, iron and FREE wi/fi. Location to all the parks is great and very convenient.
Many restaurants nearby. Would definitely stay here again.

Stayed here with a 3 bus loads of High School Students. Location to all the parks is great. Parking is a little tight for buses but the Hotel was accomidating in blocking off a spot so we always had parking. That is a nice and important feature. Front desk personnel were courteous and helpful. Had our rooms ready upon arrival. Rooms were spacious, clean and everything worked. I was impressed with how many electrical plugs were available. AC was a little loud but did a great job of keeping the room cool. That is a nice touch. Breakfast was good with several hot items available. Look forward to my next visit there. Thank you.

Room Tip: Ask for a back side room. Traffic noise on front side of hotel is loud. Ask for upper floors. 1st...

We enjoyed our stay here it was quiet & close to the amenities that we needed. We had a wedding in town & our rental was a flop so we rented a car from the hotel through their rental agent & thankfully made it to the wedding & saved us some money too ! Breakfast was not bad & loved the fresh waffles & the staff was TOP NOTCH !! Did not care for the park transports as it made a very long day :/ otherwise it was great !! Thanks

We stayed here in January 2013 for the annual Corvette show. We had to book a year in advance to get a room during that time - it completely sells out. (a bit of advice - if you're coming for the show make sure you book for next year at check out). The complimentary breakfast was more than expected with several hot dishes to choose from (eggs, biscuits, gravy, sausage, etc). The room was clean and comfortable, check in was a breeze and everyone we encountered was friendly. The only thing to be aware of is that the elevators are extremely slow. We were in no rush so no big deal.

We booked this hotel through our travel agency and were not sure about what we would get after reviewing the comments. And frankly, we really liked it:
- very closed to all the parks
- nice large rooms with great beds
- friendly staff
- possibility to buy tickets to any parks there and to rent cars
- free breakfast with kind staff (be there before 8.00AM)
- fairly cheap
Now on the downside, yes the bathroom is old but hey, it works.
We didn't spend too much time in the hotel either. We did not want to spend to much money on hotels and keep our budget for activities but still get quality not far from the parks. This hotel is spot on! I do agree with many comments that this hotel is worth the money.
Do you expect more then you should try another place... and pay more.
We will definitely come back

Decent for the money. Rooms were surprisingly spacious for reasonably priced lodging. Rooms were also clean and fairly updated. Room door was a little loose and a bit banged up. Public areas were only average. Hallways were well worn. Parking was plentiful both front and back. Pool and hot tub, although not fancy, were adequately spacious, comfortable, and clean. Breakfast had plenty of variety and was kept stock, even when busy in the morning. One thing about breakfast....hotel has an attached "all you can eat" lobster restaurant. In the morning, the breakfast area smells like last night's lobster...a rather odd smell to my nose first thing in the morning...not horrible, just weird. Staff was very pleasant and polite. I frankly wasn't expecting much for the money, and I was pleasantly pleased. Oh, and yes, it is very close to Disney, lots of places to eat nearby. This is NOT some posh (but expensive) place to stay. It is clean, comfortable, fairly plain, but hits the sweet spot of being affordable and pleasant. I would definitely stay there again.
