Location is great. It is near Orlando's attractions. I would say this is an average hotel with the basic requirements for people on the go. It has a pool and is very near a lake. I noticed however a lot of roaches on the deck area close to the lake. Management should do something because this destroys the ambience making One want to simply stay indoors.

Dear vpmadrigal1: We would like to thank you for taking time to review our hotel. Your comments are important to us. We would like to assure that we have routine pest control service by a well-known pest control company. As you mentioned, the hotel is situated next to a lake, we are in an excellent/convenient location and we actually have 3 pools throughout our property. Thank you and we certainly hope you return and stay with us again!

Nice and quiet for sleep. Main reason for be there was the parks; so for some sleep, breakfast and relax after all the walking was good. Pool was clean and quiet<----so important! the room is average and I can say clean; needs i little more care in the bathroom; but for the rate is a decent place to stay. We love the breakfast and the service was excelent. Happy and kind staff!!!

It was a nice place to stay for a short period of time and the prices were reasonable. This is the best place to stay if you do not want to spent the amount of money on hotels, but the amusement parks. This hotel provides reasonable prices for the tickets and I wish that they had shuttles to the parks instead of driving. The hotel is less than a mile to Sea World and Disney World. The room was clean except for the hair that we found in the bath tub, but it was resolved with the manager. The service was good and I loved their breakfast buffet. I had no problem checking out to catch my plane at seven in the morning and I did not have to go to front desk to check out. This hotel included a pool bar, pool, and kiddie pool. There was a mini-golf course behind the hotel with a spectacular view!!!

2012 holiday (three weeks) at hotel just like 2009 review, nothing changed but the name. Great hotel not going to repeat 2009 review, but an added note had 2 seperate minor problems with door and toilet and guess what, virtually 10mins from reporting them maintenance guy was there and fixed them its how a buisness responds to problems is how you should judge them, i say this because most brits we met had reservations about this hotel due to bad reviews but 100% of them said they could not believe how good the hotel was. Once again our room was cleaned daily (remember to leave 2 dollar tip) and had no complaints about the room or the hotel.
Big thank you from me and the wife to all staff especially cleaning maid at the hotel for making our holiday stay with them once again an holiday we will always remember.

Staff was friendly about last minute changes to change to dog friendly rooms, so was happy with that.... But When we got to our rooms there was a few long hairs on a couple pillows which we threw to the side but then later getting out of the shower we discovered long hairs on our towels! Maybe from the maid but idk it freaked me out and felt unclean. I was also upset because website said shuttle service but they only had like 4 shuttle times to the park and then charged us $10 a piece for the convience but we never even used the service! Also said free coffee... They had 3 packets of decaf and a disgusting looking coffee maker in room. No continental breakfast or coffee in the lobby. Def not a resort! Golf course was promised was non existent. Very ghetto, would def not recommend!!!!

Dear Sweetmelissa14: Thank you for your review. We take your comments seriously and would like to address some points in your review. We would first like to apologize for any troubles you encountered, such as in your guest room with cleanliness and the coffee/coffee maker. We do offer complimentary scheduled shuttle service that is included in the nightly resort fee (it is not charged per use). We do have a full breakfast buffet in which 1 child eats free per paying adult. Our mini-golf course is near the main pool and the lake at the front of the resort. Thank you for your review and we certainly hope you stay with us again in the future.
