This hotel was a great location for those who are visiting Disney and don't want to spend all the money staying on the Disney property. Besides the location, there really wasn't much to be proud of. For the size of the hotel with two towers, the swimming pool was quite small. They have a cafeteria which was never open when the published hours of operation were posted. They did not have a free continental breakfast which would have been helpful for the number of kids that were staying at the hotel that were playing at the ESPN Wide World of Sports.
The rooms were not that clean. Our friends experienced dirty, hairy sheets when they checked in. We asked for towels one day when the cleaning people left us no towels and we called the front desk who said they would be happy to send towels and the next morning we still had no towels and had to call again. We also tried to use the boarding pass kiosk in the hotel lobby and it would not connect or work. Asked the front desk if they could help us out and they allowed us to use their computer but it could not connect to the printer so we had to do that in the airport which was very inconvenient. We asked to use the business office in lieu of the broken kiosk and they said they would have to charge us.
The parking lot could not hold all the guests cars and most had to park along the sides of the parking lot and in some of the spots for the on-site rental car company.
Location was near a lot of fun stuff for kids and shopping but that was the only real positive.
Average deal for the price
