My husband and I stayed at this place for 7 nights when we were there to go to Disneyworld and Universal Studios. There is absolutely nothing fancy about this place and we only got one complimentary room cleaning. But this place is clean, spacious, conveniently located, and excellent value. We got it at a discounted rate through Hotwire, so we considered this a 'steal of a deal'.
We rented a car and it was easy to get around. We were never more than a 5-10 min drive to and from the various Disney Parks, and about 15 min on the highway to and from Universal Studios, 20 min from airport. We were also about a 5 min drive from the Vineland Premium Outlet. We were close to lots of restaurants and some grocery stores and convenience stores, so we were able to save quite a bit of money by eating breakfast and some meals in our unit. There is a full kitchen, including a blender, a microwave, a stove, cutlery...
My only complaint was the spotty and slow wifi connection.
