Wish we had stayed here first

This was a family trip to Disney and we stayed in another hotel prior to this one. This hotel was far superior to the one we stayed in all week and I wish we had booked this one for the entire trip. Very clean, very comfortable and friendly staff. I chose this hotel for the free hot breakfast and I was not disappointed. Eggs, bacon, sausage, gravy biscuits, pancakes, fresh fruit, cereal, milk and juice. I probably forgot a few items. Free shuttle to the parks - Disney and others. What more could you ask for?

last minute trip

The hotel was clean and in a great location. We chose this hotel because of the shuttle to and from Epcot. However, the shuttle schedule was unclear. The shuttle only departs to Epcot twice a day. Having the schedule more readily available would have been helpful. Overall, the hotel was very nice.

We would stay there again.

My wife and I would stay there again. The front desk and staff was always very polite and friendly. We enjoyed our breakfast every morning. It was really helpful to be able to purchase our Disney tickets there the first morning after we ate breakfast. The lady who sold the Disney tickets was always helpful to us. We liked the location and our room was very quite at night. Good parking it was easy to come and go from there. We would stay there again.

Lots of good eating places on Highway 192 not that far from the hotel - maybe within a mile or two.

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.

Comfortable stay

The room was clean and comfortable, breakfast was average for a hotel buffet breakfast. The location is not ideal but 20 minutes from the main attractions.

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!!
