After searching many hotels very close to Disney I chose this one. The front desk was very helpful and pleasant. The housekeeping staff cleaned the rooms daily allowing us to come back after a long day at Disney, to beds made, clean towels, and everything in order.
Since we had young children our room overlooked the kiddie pool area and we could see Disney across the way. Our room had a balcony, which gave us a sense of not being 'boxed-in'.
Our room had two sinks, a mini fridge, microwave and coffee maker along with iron + ironing board + hair dryer. We were 3 adults and 2 children and were quite comfortable.
On the first floor of our building is a mini gift shop + grocery store. There is also a video game room across from it.
We were on the 6th floor and never had a problem waiting for the elevator.
The kiddie 'Pirates Cove' was excellent for the young kids. Two water slides, a couple of 'spray' areas and a little pool that went from one inch to one foot deep.
I felt that the total room price for 4 nights was very reasonable. However we did stay mid-week the begining of May. I'm not sure of the room rates in the summer season.
I highly recommend this hotel as it was about a 10 minute walk to Disney Entrance. There is a MiMi's Cafe across the street, a few other restaurants, including a McDonalds on your stroll to Disney.
