Good family time

I thought the hotel was really nice. The beds really needed to be Queen instead of two full size... See full review

Great and Convenient

We thought it was a great location, everything you could ever want was right there and it was only a few minutes away from the parks. They did have a problem with wireless internet access and that did cause us some trouble, but the removed the resort charges of $60.00 and credited us 2 nights for the inconvenience. It was an overall great stay.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Florida has a law that requires restaurants and snack places to give people water if they ask. This can save you a ton of money in the parks. We always asked for ice water in a cup we already had and it always worked. Wish we found out about it 4 parks earlier.

Ok for the price

No complimentary anything including breakfast. Rooms got clean in the mid afternoon instead of the morning. No elevator or helper for heavy bags when your on the second floor. Its 20 minutes away from DisneyWorld. A lot of food places within walking distance. Walgreens literally a 2min walk from the hotel.

Never again

I stayed at this hotel for 5 days and I will never go back. The hotel is poorly kept. It was dirty and smelly. Definitely not worth 3 stars. No elevator which was a problem since my 65 year old mother and myself had to pull 2 large suitcases up a lot of stairs. They also charge an additional 7.50 per night for a 'resort fee'. What resort???? The location was quite good. It had that going for it. Nothing else.

Surprised and will return

We chose the hotel because our family of 5 with three young children wanted a cheap and convenient place to sleep and shower while spending a week at the nearby parks. It was perfect for that! After reading negative reviews about room cleanliness and appearance, I was nervous enough to bring our own sheets from home. I was relieved to walk into a clean and comfortable - but ordinary - room. We went to the pool in the evening, and they even showed a movie outside for the kids to enjoy. Overall, we got more than we paid for.

you get what you pay for

Room was a decent size. Got 2 double beds instead of a queen or even full. Not good for my husband and I to share! No spare pillows. Not very comfortable at all. The a/c was not working well. Vanity area was clean. Bathroom was small. Mildew in shower. A few bugs in the tub. Stranger's hair on the floor. However, location was great for Disney. Right next to a 24hr Walgreens was a big plus.

Our first time in Orlando

We spent 4 nights in this hotel, great value for the money, ideal for families with kids. First hotel which offered open-air cinema for the kids at the pool-side :-) Close to the main theme parks and even Kennedy Space Center is in a reachable distance.

Do not miss the BBQ place couple of blocks on the way to Disney on the left hand side. Just follow the smokey smell and be prepared for a great BBQ!
