We stayed here over Memorial Weekend as the Disney resorts were booked solid. At that time the hotel was under renovation, mainly the lobby area. It is the old style "Holiday Inn" kind of room where you can roll your car right up the door if you are on the first floor, which we were. Our room was freshly renovated with everything appearing brand new. Clean, can comfortable, it was easily worth the very economical price. I've stayed at some Hilton Gardens that were not as clean. It's not far from the parks. Plenty of restaurants, gas, etc... all nearby in this area and most are pretty nice.
No real complaints save one, and it had nothing to do with the room. We ate in their little lobby restaurant for breakfast. Again, it appeared to be essentially new. The issue was they were way understaffed for the number of people in there. It took forever, and the food was mediocre as best for the price. The servers did their best, but their was no way for them to handle the breakfast rush. We should have hit a Denny's or Perkins nearby.
