Great place to stay close to Disney

Great hotel close to Disney World. 10-15 min drive from the parks. Nice pool in back yard. Clean rooms and attentive staff. Good breakfast before going out for the day.

Good Orlando alternative

This hotel is off the "main drag" of Orlando hotels at a very reasonable price. It is clean and comfortable and not hard to find. We enjoyed our stay and re-booked for another night on our way back to Orlando at the end of our trip.

Lots of great eating options down on RT 192, about 2-3 miles away. Worth the drive to go there for dining.

weekend getaway

The hotel was great for a weekend getaway. The staff was very friendly and attentive. The room was very clean. The only complaint I had was how thin the walls were.. but I guess that's everywhere. Great weekend!!

Fair lodging

I booked the hotel since it was rated 3 out of 5z. It should be rated as a 2 star hotel. The breakfast was free and had a good variety. Shuttle bus to amusement parks is available but limited to 2 pick-up times. We had to get a taxi back to hotel as the bus pick-up time was too early for us. The decor and beddings look old and needs a makeover. The carpet in our room felt sticky. The staff's eagerness to be of service fluctuated. The wireless Internet is free but I was hardly able to access it in our room. When we checked out in the morning, I asked the staff if we can leave our luggages since our flight is not till that evening. He handed as the key to the storage room and we had to place our luggage ourselves. He did not even give us a tag to make sure that other guest that not take our bags.

Okay stay

If you're looking for a hotel with shuttle service to Disney, Sea World, or Universal this hotel offers it. The only catch is that the shuttle only leaves twice to each of the above (the last shuttle to Epcot is around noon# so if you check in later than noon, you'll have to rent a cab to get to the park #about $30-$35). The Disney shuttle only goes to Epcot! Please make note of this!!! Staff was average, clean rooms, shuttles drivers spoke poor English and were sometimes rude. If you book here, the hotel will not honor your hotel membership card. Hot breakfast was decent with hours from 6:30 - 9:30. Rooms were decent. We stayed in a suite which was good size. We could hear people upstairs and beside us so the walls and ceiling are not good for noise. Overall, you get what you pay for. Shuttle could have been better. Last shuttle leaves Disney's Epcot at 10:05 p.m. so you have to rush back to Epcot before some parks close which was kind of a hassle. I will stay on Disney property next time.

Great Value

Value for the money. Good breakfast. Helpful friendly staff. Shuttle ran ontime but wished it ran later to see the final show at the Magic kingdom. Had to leave at 9 when the show started to not miss out shuttle. But all in all a great value.
