Can't beat the price!

The only problem I had with the hotel was the first night when the people next door were loud and I could hear them clearly. The walls are not soundproof so just be aware. Aside from that, the whole experience was great. The price was very good. The location was fantastic (shuttles to all Disney parks and a five minute walk from Downtown Disney) and the restaurants were plentiful in the area. The one in-house (Avu-Avu) may not appeal to the kids but was very good. Service from the hotel staff was great but beware the Hilton time-share employee across from the hotel food shop on the lower level. They'll offer free tickets to non-Disney events but require you to go through a 90-minute presentation before you get them...you know the drill...

Couldn't be a better place!

We can't imagine how a place so close to the theme park that was so nice was so affordable. The staff was nice, the rooms were clean and very large. Corky and Sue B

It was ok

The shower leaked, if you were handicapped I would not recommend staying. I called twice to make sure we recieverd a King size bed to find out when we arrived they didnt have one for us. Of course they could up grade for more money to have a king size bed. IT cost an additonal 50.00 per night and they realy didnt care. I understand that its close to Disney and they realy dont care about good customer service because you dont have a lot of choice when you arrive to find another motel. I think all motels are the same around Disney. It is close to alot of places to eat.

hotel Palace

I reserved a room with a king bed and they did not have one available. They tell you ahead of time they cannot guarantee your bed but what is point on reserving a room that will not fit you and your spouse in the same bed. I had to pay to get an upgrade and a king bed. Everything else was ok.

Pretty good stay!

Every staff member we interacted with during our two night stay was outstanding. Very respectful and enjoyable. The room did have a musky smell but we just opened the slider to let some fresh air in and the smell was gone after a few minutes. The room was clean and updated. I was a little confused when we checked in because this website listed the room as two queen or one king and the check in attendant told us a room with a king size bed was an extra $100 a night. Not a big deal to have two queen beds but a little misleading? I did notice that the chair and ottoman in the room had some blemishes and rips (but that was not a big concern for us). The main flaw we found was self parking. no sidewalks and walkways to the self parking lot and it was a good 5 minute walk. You would like a big hotel would have at least a walkway! Overall the location, price, and friendly staff made our stay enjoyable. We would stay again.

very good for Disney

Reasonably priced for the great location (very close to Disney World) and room was comfortable (great bed). Although, our room's drawers clearly had some water damage that left a smell. Otherwise, we were very happy with this hotel.

Very nice hotel, room very neatly kept and clean. Staff very helpful and friendly. Went to Koots, staff was professional, friendly, chicken wings were very tasty. With all the Disney Resorts/activities I'm surprised you don't have free bus transportaion to the theme parks
