My family of 4- 2 adults, 2 kids- stayed 2 nights before we checked into our Disney resort hotel. It was clean and had everything we needed. Room had 2 queen beds and was large with a frig and freezer area. The hotel had 4 floors so it wasn't too big. The free hot buffet breakfast offered: muffins, bagels, eggs, bacon or sausage, biscuits and gravy, hard boiled eggs, yogurt, toast, pancakes. Coffee, OJ, milk. We were very happy with the options and it saved our family $28 and 30 minutes every morning. I was initially concerned about the location to Disney, but then I found Osceola Parkway(toll road for $0.75) . I purchased a SunPass at AAA before the trip- or you can buy one at a Service Center along the toll road. It was one block north of the hotel and saved us lots of time and avoided the traffic. Also, the hotel is across the street from the closest Walmart. Score! I bought snacks and fruit to take into the park. Get your Disney merchandise/tshirts here for $12! The front desk of the hotel sells tickets to Disney and has bus, but we didn't use the service. My husband wishes we had stayed at this hotel during our weeklong stay since we weren't in our room much and the breakfast was included. It would have saved us a bunch of money. The hotel is rated a 3 star. If you want Hilton, Marriott, etc. then go pay more. This is perfect if you are on a budget. We wanted queen beds, not doubles like some of the Downtown Disney high-rise hotels. We also wanted a smaller property with easy parking and loading/unloading after a long day.
