We stayed here with the family after spending a week in the Disney resort. The place is a little bit tired and you may hear the occasional bump, but for $140/night we didn't care.
A lot of earlier reviews here related to the hard sell given at the "Welcome package" - don't let this put you off. We politely declined the welcome package and were called on our room phone twice (which we didn't answer) and were left alone after that.
The concierge staff were very helpful with luggage, tours bookings and transportation and there was lots on for the kids to do.
The wireless internet was a bit flaky/slow (which was annoying) - I don't mind paying for wi-fi but I expect it to work, aside from that it's hard to fault this place.
Value for money wise this place is hard to beat.
