Reasonably Priced Family Fun

We had no problems with check in or with any other aspect of our stay. The queen sized beds were quite comfortable. While we didn't visit the pool, we knew that it was available if we wanted. The lobby area was clean. Likewise, our room was also clean. We liked that there was a security officer stationed at the entrance. This location is close to Disney attractions - making it easy and quick to rack or Park and shopping destinations.

Good price and great location

Pretty good hotel conveniently located to Disney World. Big plus was that they don't charge a resort fee and they are right on the main drag. Plenty of eating options in short walking distance. We had a little issue with the continental breakfast, but after I showed my reservation staff was very nice and honor the breakfast.

not bad

It was a very inexpensive room but very comfortable. I was very satisfied. Not a place to take someone you want to impress and not a romatic place but if you just need an inexpensive room then it was great.

Wife's Birthday getaway

Huge, huge hotel! I was impressed that they had a security attendant at the front entrance who checked to see if you had a reservation at the hotel before he let you in. Our room was on the back side of the hotel so it was nice and quiet but had to walk quite a good distance to reach hotel restaurant .

For a family looking for value

Value:= price plus quality. This property delivers really good value. If you are on a tight budget or want two rooms for less than one room at DW this is a good choice. it is really CLOSE to the main entrance to DW and well run. We have stayed there three times and will be back again. (If money is not an issue and you plan to spend much of your time at DW, on DW premises is still the best bet.)
