“A pleasant surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

We needed a convenient, reasonable place to stay while visiting Epcot for a couple of days and chose this after sorting through many reviews, both negative and positive. We were pleased when we arrived at 10:30 am and were assigned a quiet room which was clean and even had a small fridge and microwave. The shuttle was great, as well as the warm breakfast the next morning with a nice outdoor seating area. The staff was very accommodating and even gave a Florida resident discount which we were not expecting. The location was excellent with a Carrabbas a few footsteps away, along with other fast food restaurants and shops. We would definitely return.

Room Tip: Third floor on the back side away from the pool was very quiet.

We checked in before going to Disney world and I got the keys and did not enter the room. We came back about midnight after 13 hours at Disney and were very tired. The room had an AWFUL musty mildew smell. We started out in room 204 then moved to 115 finally room 305 did not have the musy smell. It was tough to do all of the rooms moves with my sleepy 2 year old and family. I will say that Keith at the front desk was very helpful. I will not return. The best part about this hotel is that it is 2 miles from Disney. Also...the beds are hard as a rock!

For the price we paid, this hotel was all we had hoped for and more. The room was super clean, the pool area was very nice and the free breakfast was awesome. Our room was right across from the pool entrance which was great for us and the kids. I will definitely recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to the area and would definitely stay there again. Also, there was every restaurant imaginable within a couple miles either way of the hotel. We were very impressed with everything about this hotel. My only complaint would be that the bed wasn't the most comfortable.

I didn't realize this was a motel versus a hotel, which almost turned us off, but we will be back. The room was extremely clean! Nice TV, microwave, refridge and a clean big bathroom. The pool area was very big and nice, great family place even though this time it was only my husband and I. The breakfast is more that anyone needs, (eggs, sausage, pancakes, rice, beans, hash browns, cereal, breads, and more)... The front desk staff was top notch and friendly. The bar tender would come out to see us as we sat at night just to say hi and see if we needed anything, great service. Lots of places to eat close by and the express way is down the road.

we stayed at this hotel for 6 nights the week before easter. We travelled as a family of nine , and where placed in adjoining rooms. We enjoyed the pools kids had a blast , was not crowded which was a blessing after disney all day. we were walking distance to windixie which had everything we needed , the fridge was nice in room . there are safes in rooms and the air conditioner tho a little loud works good. we used laundry facilities once and they worked fine. The shuttle service runs at certain times and we made it work most days. tgif fridays is a great place to eat and is just across parking lot. Also cracker barrel was good the food was great. we enjoyed this hotel the only draw back is if you stay at a disney hotel you have better transportation . But for the price we paid and the memories we took home this place was perfect. And on a side note we hired tony Hinds the best cab driver we have ever had took us wherever we needed and truly added to our trip.he picked us up at airport.

Room Tip: we where on main floor which was ok. it was quiet and faced a empty lot.

We booked a non-smoking, 2 queen room on the third floor and found the small sitting area, the bedroom area, AND the bathroom to be spotless. The air conditioner brought some "stale air" smells into the room, though, and it seemed like the filter needed to be cleaned. This had been part of the Comfort Suites chain last summer. The breakfast they serve is outstanding! We found the location of this hotel to be perfect for us: within walking distance of Carrabbas, TGI Fridays, Cracker Barrel, and it was a short drive to the Disney Parks. The staff was very helpful in assisting us with the guest laundry, giving directions, and helping us obtain tickets. I would not hesitate to visit again.

Room Tip: Rooms not facing the pool are quieter.

We stayed here because we got a great deal on flight and hotel. The staff was friendly and helpful and it is located very close to the parks. The room was clean except the sink didn't drain (that was fixed the next day when the room was cleaned) and the shower wasn't the best. The beds were vey comfortable but you could hear babies cry in the night. The shuttle service to the parks was not convienient but the taxi service associated with the hotel was excellent. They charge a flat rate instead of by the minute or per mile which worked many times in the customer's favor. The hotel is located next to some great restaurants and a grocery store within a minute walk. The complementary breakfast was good and we ate from the hotel restaurant once and it was good (pizza). We would stay again.
