We stayed there last year for the Doctor Who convention and I made reservations for this year too, then our mom offered to pay for the room so I called and they refunded back the money without question. This hotel really does put its guests first!

This hotel had the amenities we were looking for - clean, comfortable room, outdoor pool and a spa. The property also had a playground as well as an arcade/game room area. The staff were generally friendly, from the front desk to the staff, and took care of everything needed. The breakfast that is included can't be beat. No problems with accessing internet in the room, and the room also had a small refrigerator and microwave. Centrally located - it was close to everything.

Room and bathroom were very clean at our arrival. Excellent and nice employees. Carpet and curtain were stained but that didn't affect our stay. We stayed in a Kid's Suite with 1 king bed and 2 twins in a small room inside the room. 2 TV's. Small closet. Furniture is outdated. CRT TV's and picture was not good, desk with ergonomic chair, 2 living room chairs, 1 stool in kid's room. I have to agree with other reviewers, paper thin walls. We stayed on the 3rd floor, and people walking (steps) on the 4th floor were annoying. Beds were OK. We found no bugs. Towels were old, not soft. Complimentary toiletries were provided. Micro/fridge/coffee maker. Cups, coffee, tea were included, but no disposable plates. A/C worked perfectly. Pool is very small, and is open until very late. Our room was facing the pool and it was noisy late at night. Wifi was OK, speed was average. Plenty of lights/lamps in room. Free hot breakfast was good and included scrambled eggs, make your own pancakes, sliced breads, muffins, bagels, sausages, assorted yogurts, milks, assorted juices, cinnamon rolls, hot cereal, assorted cold cereals, hot beverages, bananas. Walmart and Outlets across the street. As another reviewer wrote "creepy" area and very dark at night. Publix Supermarket and Target within a few minutes drive. Location is good. Downtown Disney area and I-4 within a short drive too.

This hotel is amazing! I have stayed here with my family and we were given a suite! The room was amazing and so was the breakfast! Johanna and Manny were completely friendly and so were the rest of the staff! Only 15 minutes away from Disney/Universal/Sea World. The pool is nice and warm and comforting.

Room Tip: Get the top floor so you won't hear children running.

I utilized tripadvisor to help plan our stay in Orlando (Mother & 2 teen daughters traveling on a budget). The good: ROOM:We requested the 4th floor, end of hallway fearing the noise of adjacent rooms (great suggestion from one of the reviews). We only had guest neighbors the first night, and we could clearly hear them, they soon quieted down and left the next morning. Noise was not a problem for us, perhaps because we traveled at the end of the season. In fact, we slept very well. FOOD: I should start with the 2 nice ladies greeting us each morning, so nice, polite, the eating area was spotless, the food was simple but good and satisfying. POOL: Nice, clean, towels available, jacuzzi. OTHER AMENITIES: Park tickets on sale at the hotel, very nice and helpful lady. One morning we...forgot the tickets at the hotel... We called her and she diligently helped us. WIFI good and AC worked well.
There is a Walmart within walking distance (10 mins walking by empty lots at times) and a good, family owned place, to eat Gyros and the best Baba Ganoush nearby. The surrounding area of the hotel is a little creepy, really...
Now, the not-so-good: Bathroom tub drain was very slow. There didn't seem to be a fan, so the bathroom got very steamy with each shower. We reported the drain problem upon our return.
Shuttle service, particularly the one to DisneyWorld was bad. Departure time was ok: the parks open at 9am, and the shuttle picks up at 8:45. Getting to Disneyworld though, took 45 minutes since our hotel was the first stop and the shuttle stopped at other hotels as well. We did not find too much of a problem with the timing in the morning. BUT, the return from DisneyWorld was bad, and took a very long every time to get back. Once, we waited for nearly 1 hr in the lane where it was supposed to pick us up. Another bus was parked on the lane we were supposed to wait at, and no one was in it. Luckily, we spotted other guests of our hotel waiting too, they called, and finally about 30 mins later the bus arrived at the pick up place. The driver was in a bad mood, and talking on her cell while driving! An additional 45 mins elapsed while she dropped people off in other places before getting to our hotel. The return time on some of the evenings was too early for us, so we opted for a taxi instead in order to stay at the park longer. Shuttle to Universal Studios and Seaworld was much better, on time going and coming, no complains on that one (I must clarify, since they seem to be two different companies).

Room Tip: Top floor, end of hallway for quietest rooms.

We stayed at this hotel for 6 nights in July and really enjoyed it. The staff were helpful and friendly. Breakfast was a treat. WiFi worked well. Laundry on some floors are very nice and not expensive at all. The rooms were spacious and very clean. The microwave and minibar was very much appreciated. Walmart closeby with a lot of Disney merchandise at a fraction of the cost. Shuttle to parks worked well. The pool at the end of a long, hot day was wonderful.

Even though the walls are very thin, as mentioned in other reviews, it did not bother us at all.

I would recommend that you rent a car if you are not driving to Orlando, as everything is quite far apart and the taxi's are expensive.

We would stay at this hotel again when visiting Orlando.
