Our stay here was due to our preferred hotel being booked on our vacation date (Hilton Grand Vacation Suites at Sea World, which I like to stay at because I like to cook on vacation). It should be noted that this is less expensive than HGVSSW, and is smaller overall. This hotel has a kitchenette, but not a full kitchen (only two burners, no oven, a dishwasher, a full sized fridge and a microwave and place settings for four people as well as only a five quart pot, 1 quart pot, and fry pan). So, overall, the kitchenette is not as fully equipped as the Hilton Grand Vacation Suites, which has everything I could need, including washer and dryer in the room and broom and mop, etc. But the people who work here are great. I needed a colander and they lent me one from the kitchen, for example. But I prefer a bigger kitchen.
Also, the room was clean but is looking threadbare. The curtain has stains. The loveseat has stains. The cabinets have worn and chipped laminate. The extra blankets for the pullout sofa bead are frayed. The DVD did not work until the maintenance guy came and played with it...he said the cords were old. So if you like everything brand new, this is not the place for you. This stuff did not bother me, because despite being old, the place was clean. There is a notice under the door that says that the water will be shut off tomorrow midday (when I will be at Disney-world so that will not affect me) Again, I chalk it up to being old and needing more maintenance than a new place.
The other thing worth mentioning is there are a lot of free extra things similar style hotels do not have. Free breakfast, free dinner Mon-Thur., free parking, free limited shuttle to Epcot. It is about a mile from a lot of restaurants and a grocery story and about two miles to the entrance to the Disney parks. It is a very convenient location. There is a decent heated but small outdoor pool and $2 laundry with $2 dry.
I would prefer to stay at Hilton Grand Vacation Suites at Sea World, which costs more but has a bigger room overall and a bigger kitchen, as well as newer furnishings. But if I wanted to save money in the future, or if I could not get a room at HGVSSW I would stay here again.
