No wifi

It said they had free wifi in the rooms. They did not. Only in the lounge that was 90 degrees plus! Not happy at all! Even when I went to the lounge to upload my pics to fb it was so slow because there was at least 30 people all piled in there doing the same thing. Not happy at all!

bad choice

wifi in rooms did not work. ice machines did not work. had to go to cola machine to get ice. rooms are old and worn. Too many other choices in this area to stay here. Avoid this hotel, even for the price.

You get what you pay for

It was a pretty standard hotel. Clean room, clean pool, free shuttle to parks. It could use a remodeling change though.

Good place to rest for the night

Finding this place was a little difficult because it's sort of hidden behind a bunch of colossal gift shops and the set up of the buildings was confusing. Check in was easy and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Once I was settled in, it was a very typical stay at a motel. My room was clean and relatively comfortable. I was annoyed to find they had no wifi (though apparently they are working to update the whole property), but other than that the room was well equipped. If you are just staying a night or two or plan on spending all your time at the parks, this place is for you. It's a place to sleep after a long day out and it's a pretty good value given the price.

booked for 6 nights and did not make it through 1

Worst Hotel i have ever been to!!! The place is a complete dump. Trash everywhere on the grounds. The rooms were filthy. the carpets smelled like mold and urine, there were dead roaches and spiders everywhere, the furniture was falling about. Really really gross. The staff were also extremely rude. My family was there for two hours, just enough time to find another hotel that was not booked, and we were charged for the a whole night. I would never go back.
