We booked this hotel earlier in the year unaware it was going to be renovated and that the name would change (from ES Deluxe) - it would of been nice to be informed of this.
Having said that, my husband and I were placed in a newly renovated room which we were pleased with.
The room was larger than other hotel rooms we have stayed in and included 2 queen sized beds. The kitchenette was a great bonus, although our room did not have a full size fridge freezer with ice maker (as advertised). Amenities included: fridge with freezer shelf, microwave, 2 hobs, dish washer, toaster and coffee maker. All cutlery, crockery and cooking utensils were provided along with tea towels and dish cloths, washing up liquid and dish washer powder.
The bathroom included bath and shower and regular toiletries were provided. The only limitation here is the lack of storage/shelving available in the bathroom. We had to keep our toiletries in our kitchen cupboard.
The main part of the room included 2 cupboards with hangers, table and chairs, new sofa, flat screen tv, DVD player and alarm clock.
When we first got the room one of the cupboard doors were broken. After phoning reception, the door was promptly fixed sometime during the next day. We were really pleased with this service.
Other amenities available in the hotel: free parking for guests, swimming pool, shuttle to parks and free breakfast (cereals, porridge, eggs, yoghurt, fruit, muffins, cinnamon rolls, waffles, toast, eggy bread, bagels, butter, cream cheese, jam, milk, juice and coffee)
I would definitely recommend this hotel, especially once the renovation is complete. The location is unbeatable - easy to get to from the I4; there is a Walmart 3 mins drive away (Palm Parkway becomes Turkey Lake Road on which a Walmart Super centre is located); there is a Walgreens 2 mins drive away and there are loads of bars/restaurants at the Vista Centre/Cross Roads centre which is a 10 minute walk away - and yes, you can easily cut through between the two centres by the mini golf. Restaurants include: Kobe, CiCis, Sweet Tomatoes, TGIF Fridays, Buffalo Wild Wings, Flippers Pizza, Perkins, Uno, Olive Garden, Black Angus Steakhouse, Mc Donald's, Taco Bell, Hooters, Kitty O'Sheas and Denny's
Other restaurants within a 15 minute walk from the hotel include: IHOP, Chilis, Giordanos, Sizzler, Joes Crab Shack and Shoneys
Downtown Disney is a 10 minute drive from the hotel (that includes all the stops at traffic lights)
Overall an excellent location.
