We stayed from 7th -14th March 2913 - This was my second trip to this hotel - don't go expecting the Ritz. In places the hotel is a bit tired, but it is very comfortable and a great base to visit Disney Parks and also the Premium Outlet Mall. It's within walking distance on Down Town Disney where you will find restaurants for most people's tastes. Also a short walk in the other direction is 'Crossroads' where there are more restaurants including TGi's, Taco Bell and a McDonalds. There is also a good size supermarket.
The hotel has ample parking, a small convenience shop, a small cafe, bar and the Traders Restaurant. Say hi to Anita, Cathy, Thomas and the staff in Traders who give excellent service and attend to your needs. I highly recommend the Chefs cooked to order omelette and Mickey Mouse waffles. It's a great breakfast made all the better with the happy helpful staff.
The rooms are very comfortable and quite spacious although the bathrooms are a bit tired - they are completely functional and a good size. You do get a bit of noise from the State Route i4 (as with all the hotels in this area) but that's the price you have to pay for its great location to get to all the parks and shops. I would recommend the rooms with the Epcot Firework display view as these are a bit quieter as at the rear of the hotel. The room we stayed in had a flat screen TV and a good sized safe for storing valuables.
Reception staff are very helpful and check in was quick and easy.
I'd certainly recommend this hotel if visiting the area - it makes an excellent base for all the Disney/Seaworld/Universal attractions and also the outlet mall.
