We have stayed here several times and really enjoy it. The price is good and the rooms are clean. The biggest factor in our staying here is the staff, they are AMAZING. If you are looking for nice fmaily style hotel close to food and shops while at Disney I highly suggest this hotel. They are outside entry rooms and the hallways could use a little TLC but do not let that keep you from visiting. There are many hotels along this strip and we have tried most but we found a favorite in the maingate Lakeside resort.

PS. There is a back entrance to Disney most people do not know about :)

Have a magical time!

Good hotel in good location for the price (less than $40/night), although the $10 resort fee is just a cash grab in return for nothing. If you don't plan on staying in your room much and want to be close to Disney then this is an OK option. I was traveling alone on business so it was fine but not sure I would I would bring my family here!

We've stayed here twice now and think it is the perfect value hotel. Rooms are clean and spacious, pool area is attractive, and the breakfast buffet is fabulous for the price. Disney is just a couple of miles away, and there are plenty of dining options nearby. While the area lacks the hustle and bustle of International Drive, it is the perfect place for a weekend getaway to the theme parks and for those who are looking for an inexpensive quality hotel option.

We came here for a weekend get away. We had an amazing time here. The barman David was incredible. He is friendly and very helpful. Went above and beyond for us. We would come back again just to hang with him.

I must admit that this, my third review visit, found the room much cleaner and the motel (it's not a resort) quieter. However, customer service here is still terrible!

First, upon check-in, you are charged $10 now, per night, for the comically-named "Resort Fee". They raised the price from $7.50, yet took away in-room Internet access! Yes...that's right...you pay $10 per night for access to the Internet ONLY in the lobby! There is a Wendy's adjacent that has much faster, free access! Also, your $10 includes numerous voicemails reminding you that you have not visited the Wyndham "Timeshare" coupon desk. However, you do get that "Disney Transportation" that nobody really uses, unless they are from abroad.

I wish I could give it a 1 1/2 rating this time (just to be fair), but it's still a place that preys on first-timers or hotel discounters. Nobody would choose the motel twice at their "rack-rate", but the value as a Travelocity "Top-Secret" or a Priceline "Name-Your Price" is worth it for a night or two. I think Travelocity is being very generous by giving it a three-star rating...and Priceline probably considers it 5-Star LOL. It certainly doesn't match up to the quality that was there when it was a Best Western, but it has improve over the last year. Oh, and the mini golf is gone, too. But you still get timeshare invitations...over, and over, and over...

Room Tip: It's hit and miss. I've stayed here many times over 20 years, and I've had nice room an...

Dear Jake E: We would like to apologize for any inconveniences encountered. The hotel does charge a nightly resort fee, as listed on the internet sites, that covers the hotel amenities, such as: mini-golf, basketball, 3 pools & 2 kiddie pools, kids eat free program, theme park shuttles, hotel parking, local phone calls, in-room safe, etc... We are currently in the process of installing wifi for all of our guestrooms... we currently have wifi in the lobby area as you mentioned. The Wyndham desk in the lobby does offer promotional discounted tickets as well as standard price tickets without promotion for the guests to choose from. Thank you and we do hope you may give us another chance in the future.

We are Disney season pass holders so have been looking for a go-to hotel for our trips up there. The location and price are perfect, but the buck stops there. The first time we stayed, we had problems with the A/C as others have mentioned in these reviews. Every 10 minutes it would go off in silence for 10 minutes and then come on and run very loudly for 10 minutes. The constant change from loud to quiet every 10 minutes made it impossible to sleep. We were told there was an engineering issue and they couldn't fix it until morning.

We decided to give the hotel one more shot a month later in hopes that the A/C issue was an isolated one. The second stay ended up worse! The A/C was fine...but there were crumbs all over the floor and squirts of lotion in the tub, so we knew it hadn't been cleaned well. When we pulled back the covers to the bed and found the sheets SOAKED WITH URINE, that's when we had enough!

Also, they have little pillows. Their bed pillows are the size of couch throw pillows and they only give you two per bed.

Don't waste your money! Not even the cheap rate they offer can overcome the horrible night's sleep you will get...if you sleep at all!

Room Tip: Don't stay here!
