This hotel is close to the main gate, rooms are decent, TV are date but ours worked well.Price was cheap during the week but doubled for the weekend. Occupancy was high yet it was still quiet. I would stay again given the value and location.

Great location close to Disney

This is my second time staying at this hotel. I was upgraded to the tower and I have to say the room was adequate. . The location was however very close to the main gates of all the Disney properties. All in all it was a good value. Room was clean but my wife wanted to use the tub for a bubble bath but the porcelain was chipping and she didn't feel comfortable using it for a bubble bath.

Best location for the price

This hotel has a motel and a hotel part and originally we were assigned a room in the motel part through our reservation even though that wasn't announced on the website. Once we got there we decided we wanted something a bit better and were presented with two options. Either an extra $5 to rent a microwave (which was the oldest microwave I have seen in my entire life) and stay in the motel part still, or $15 more a night and go to the hotel. We chose the hotel which was fine. The rooms were cleaned daily and we had no complains with the house keeping at all. The main negative thing we observed was that in the end when we had to pay the difference between the original price and the upgrade, they tried to charge us an extra $50 for no reason whatsoever and when we asked why they just removed the charge with no explanation. So, it kinda felt like they tried their luck there and were hoping to make a bit extra. Overall, for its price it had the best location, so we are happy with our choice.

Just okay

Check in took a Lon time. Our shower was tepid and the water up to our ankles the first morning. They must have seen it and cleaned the drain, b/c it was fine the next day. No one answers when you call the desk. Housekeeping was very nice and even brought us more coffee in the evening for our pot. The room was clean. The shuttle only goes to Magic Kingdom and Epcot once in the morning and returns once at night at preset times.

bugs, smokers and mildew smell, oh my!

Checked in and signed the agreement that if our room had to be cleaned for smoke issues after we checked out there would be a $150 charge. No problem, we are not smokers and we appreciate having a room that doesn't stink. Luggedsuitcases up a flight of stairs- no elevator as far as I could tell. Walked in the room and saw a bug run across the dresser...smacked him dead. Checked the bed for bugs and it was all clear so we figured it's Florida, what's the big surprise about aa bug so we stayed. The room smelled like mildew or sour milk, but I had some fabreeze fabric spray with me so I sprayed that around the bathroom vents especially and that seemed to help! We were only staying there one night (decided to escape weather at home a day early and there were no rooms at our true destination at Disney World) so we figured just suck it up and get some sleep. Loud kids at the pool at first and then loud adults around midnight made getting to sleep/staying asleep a little more difficult than what we had hoped.

Just ok!!!

Room was just ok, not many facilities. The only reason to stay is that it is near Disney and on reasonable price.
