“Excellence Across The Board”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

We wanted somewhere near good food choices, central between Disney and Orlando's malls and a nice room. Tick, tick and tick. We were here for 2 weeks so we were here long enough to pick up on the negatives and there really weren't any worth noting.

Our rooms were clean, tidy and roomy, with a desk and sofa area at the end, we had plenty of room for our shopping.

Housekeeping did a great job and our rooms were immaculate on a daily basis.

The Crossroads next door provided some good food options with Fuddruckers, Uno Chicago Pizza and Chevy's Fresh Mex. There's even a recently renovated Goodings supermarket which has everything you may need.

It was a nice casual walk away from Downtown Disney and walking distance from the myriad of Apokpa Drive restaurants like Chili's, Sizzler, Dennys, Ihop, Joes, and many more.

Everything you could want and more, we will definitely stay here again next year, because we tried other more expensive places, but with this location, convenience, free internet, baggage weighing station and a good sized pool, we got excellence across the board here and will return.

Room Tip: Like most places, rooms away from elevators are quieter, but if you're a deep sleeper then you m...

Service was great and location is great except you can only enter from the east. If you are traveling from the west, you have to make a u-turn way down the road. A little inconvenient, but no big deal. Lighting in the rooms could be a little better. Lamps are very dim. I also found that the shuttle times to Disney were few and far between. We used a cab service most of the time. Three coin-op washers and dryers on the 2nd floor and there is a Budget Rent a Car office on site.

Dear ‘Mrsjonesak’: Thank you for taking the time to write and of course a special thank you for choosing to stay with us on your visit to Orlando, FL! Thank you for sharing specific details regarding lighting and the laundry services we offer. Our hotel lighting features environmentally safe bulbs, with the goal to save energy and protect the environment. Perhaps there is an even brighter bulb we can look into for guests who share in your preference…We appreciate that feedback! As for our shuttle service- we actually just revised the offerings to provide an additional option for this complimentary service- so we hope that helps! Once again, thank you so much for your visit- please do return again in the future! In the meantime, please consider ‘Like’ing our Facebook page to stay connected! We appreciate you much indeed!

Arrived one day too early to check into our timeshare and decided to stay here. The price was reasonable and the brand name was good. When we first arrived I did not expect much due to the location of the property, next to a cheezy gift shop. Once inside I was happy. The hotel lobby as very clean. The staff was really nice. Ther issue I encountered was when the clerk said " we have an available room but it will cost you $25 to check in an hour early. Well I did not accept the offer.We went to the lobby bar had a cocktail. Once we were finally checked onto our room, we found the room to be one of the CLEANEST ROOMS I HAVE EVER ENCOUNTERED. Not even a smudge on the very shiny black marble bathroom floors. The rooms were larger then standard hotel rooms and the flat screen TV was great. The hotel has sleep number beds and they were pretty cool.

Dear ‘Anne K’: We are so appreciative of your visit and your review of your experience with us-thank you! Thank you for complimenting our property and cleanliness! Regarding the $25 you mentioned for attempting to check in just an hour early- we agree, you are right, as we should not (and do not) charge for an arrival of just 1 hour prior to our 3p check in time- we will address this with the Staff Member who tended to you and correct them on this miscommunication. We are glad that you were able to visit the Lounge area and relax with a beverage while your room was being prepared. Finally, we are happy to hear you enjoyed the Sleep Number Beds as well! We wish to invite you to return the next time you plan to visit Orlando, FL, as it will be a pleasure to have you with us again! Until then, best wishes and many thanks!

There was some noise from the main road, but it didn’t bother us. We like the hotel a lot, especially taking into consideration the price we paid – a fraction of the other hotels we booked around Florida, and still some of the best.
Room was large, clean and very comfy. Check in was fast and effective, so was checking out. Free parking right in front of the hotel.
Didn’t have breakfast at the hotel. You can walk 5 minutes from the hotel and find a lot of restaurants.

The room was great, the staff was helpful but the constant noise from the elevator and a party going on somewhere kept me awake the first night. The next night, my husband put the a/c fan on as white noise so I could sleep the subsequent nights and that helped. Also, using a lure of a welcome package, we were subjected to a pitch to attend a "time share" free breakfast which required a $20.00 deposit that was refunded in the form of script at Univeral Studios.

Room Tip: Rooms near, and not necessarily next to, the elevator can cause you loss of sleep.

Great hotel my wife and I stayed there to celebrate aniversary. Service was great really clean hotel very large over sized room it was just my wife and I but the room could easily sleep 8 people. Sleep number bed was nice you just have to find your number but once you do the beds are awsome. ...... The only change I would make is that they need a heated pool other than that I would most defiently recommend this hotel a must try.

Stayed here for 5 nights, the staff are very friendly the rooms were clean, spaceous. The only down side was it was outside disney zone which restricted your movements when coming and going to the Disney parks.
