Met Expectations

We chose this hotel because of its Lake Buena Vista location near Epcot and the Magic Kingdom. The location was perfect, we drove to and from the parks in a matter of minutes. The Downtown Disney area was also nearby. The lobby was run-down in appearance. Do not use the valet, the self parking lot is huge, just park under a lighted area for security. We had room service one night for dinner, the reuben and other hot sandwiches were very good, but the pizza was not good. The small "snack bar" area in the lobby had excellent coffee and breakfast beverages for the kids (not complimentary, but a good selection). The best part of the hotel is that the room was super-quiet (10th floor, pool-side of hotel) and super-clean. The beds were good sized queen beds with excellent mattresses.

If you want a quick commute to the Disney Parks without staying in a Disney hotel, this is a great location for your vacation base.

Getaway with granddaughter

Pleasantly surprised with this older property. Large rooms with the most comfortable beds I've experienced at a hotel. Surroundings were quiet not a lot of noise from surrounding rooms. Parking was excellent, free and right next to the hotel no long walk. On top of this the resort fee is only $10 a night. For this you get wi-fi and discount coupons to use at Downtown Disney. The hotel location is part of the Downtown Disney area. Could not be more convenient to everything.

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.

MORE THAN JUST A GOOD DEAL

OVERALL A VERY GOOD DEAL. CLOSE TO MANY RESTAURANTS AND CLOSE TO ALL THE PARKS. IN THE LOBBY A SMALL MARKET WITH ALMOST ANYTHING YOU MAY NEED, A DISNEY STORE, A QUICK EATS AND A DECENT DINNER STYLE RESTAURANT- ALL OF WHICH CAME IN HANDY. STAFF WAS FRIENDLY AND INFORMATIVE. HOUSEKEEPING STAFF DID A VERY GOOD JOB OF KEEPING MY ROOM CLEAN AND WELL SUPPLIED. MY ONLY COMPLAINT-I THINK THAT ANY FAMILY ORIENTED HOTEL SHOULD MAKE AN IN ROOM FRIDGE A STANDARD NOT AN OPTION.

Family getaway

I traveled with a 4 & 13 year old for a family trip to disney and we wanted to enjoy the pool a couple of days considering we were staying for 13 days. The heater on the pool was broken the entire stay. We had bugs in our bathroom for the first week. The staff was rude to me at the beginning of the stay but then began to get alot nicer towards the end of the stay. It is a short walk to downtown disney which is nice.

Downtown Disney is about a 10-15 minute walk which has plenty of shopping and dining. The hotel also has a shuttle that starts a 6pm till 3am every 30 minutes that goes there.

It works for the one night I was there.

The room was average and it had a nice location for going to the House of Blues for a show. Don't recommend eating at the in house Pizza Hut they have. Everything else was just average.
