Christmas trip

The hotel is a nice facility with balconies in all rooms. Great access to the parks via Downtown Disney bus service. Upper floors offer good views of Downtown Disney shopping and some even have views of the parks fireworks.

Nice Place to Stay

My sister and I stayed here for a short weekend getaway. The front desk staff was super friendly and even gave us free room upgrade. The room they upgraded us to had a great view of the Disney Fireworks. I have stayed at this hotel a few times before and always been very happy. It is just a short walk from Downtown Disney which makes it fun and convenient.

MY FAVORITE HOTEL

I LIKED IT BETTER NOW THAN THE FIRST TIME I STAYED AT THIS HOTEL IN 2005, BECAUSE MY ROOM WAS LOCATED ON THE 15TH FLOOR AND IT WAS VERY QUIET AND PEACEFUL. ALSO I HAD A REFRIGERATOR AND A MICROWAVE IN MY ROOM,VERY CONVENIENT,I DIDN'T HAVE THAT BACK IN 2005. THE INTERNET IS FREE AT BEST WESTERN AND IN OTHER DISNEY RESORTS I HAD TO PAY A FEE FOR EACH NIGHT I WANTED TO USE THE INTERNET. SO,I WOULD RECOMEND IT BECAUSE I ENJOYED MY STAY.

the not so good, the bad & the ugly

Hotel was under constuction. Hallways were dirty and reeked of drywall joint compound. "clean, fresh" towels left in our bathroom had clumps of wirery black hair in between 2 towels (my family has either blonde or light brown hair)The only positive experience was dealing with Juan who took care of parking our car.

stop in hotel

It was perfect for a stop in, change, sleep, get up and leave type of hotel. Very dated and not real clean...needs some maintenance. Did not stay long enough to use any amenities.

Decent room, good location

The hotel was decent but nothing to get excited about. It was significantly cheaper to stay there than at a Disney-owned resort so it worked just to lay our heads down at the end of the night. The thermostat was broken (stuck at 65 degrees no matter where you set it) so we had to shut it off entirely to keep from freezing. The room was large and clean (enough), but the bathroom was small and shabby. The service at the hotel was quite friendly and we were very pleased with that. Bottom line - it works if you're just using it to shower and sleep, but was not luxurious by any means.

Nightlife tip: Short drive from hotel

It is a very short drive from the hotel to Downtown Disney, so I recommend the hotel if you're interested in spending a significant amount of time at this part of Disney World. Although the hotel is not nearly as nice as those owned by Disney, it is a cheaper alternative when you're looking for nothing more than a clean, safe bed and bath in a good location.
