Not what I expected for the money

We had to have our sheets changed as there was black marks all over them. The shuttle to and from Downtown Disney is a pain, always late and the driver was rude. The hotel was not as clean as we would have hoped for. When we called to reserve the room, we were assured we would be able to see Disney's fireworks..which we couldn't. Overall, the hotel was ok but definitely not worth $344 plus $26 in parking for two days.

Holiday Vacation

We stayed for 3 nights... It was okay. Not great. Room was clean & comfortable, but the staff left something to be desired. They ignored us upon arrival & were not very welcoming. Room service was horrible. Location was good... close to everything Disney, but for the price I'm sure you could get better.

Overall a good stay

Near the park with free shuttle service. Enterprise/Avis car rentals nearby which came in handy. Staff were friendly and responsive to our needs. Good, hearty, American-style breakfast buffets which got us fueled and ready for the long days of walking in the parks. The facility/hardware did not resemble what I expected from a 4-star hotel but nonetheless clean and well-maintained. A good value play for families who want to stay near the park but not pay the high prices of a disney resort.

Disney World Vacation

I requested a Hotel with complimentary breakfast but when we got there they charged us for the breakfast. I was not pleased about that. I had a coffee and a bowl of cereal and my son had an orange juice and bacon with toast and a banana; his girlfriend had an orange juice with toast and we were charged 12.99 each. I was very upset about that. I could have gone to a less expensive hotel with breakfast and I probably would have been happier.

Perfect for our Vacation Plan

The hotel location was just perfect for our trip, although we didn't stay that much in our hotel but when we needed to crash from our long day it was perfect! Staff was very friendly, except for housekeeping, didn't do a good job in cleaning our room and taking care of the trash. If you are looking for a hotel that is close to Magic Kingdom, Downtown Disney,Typhoon Lagoon and all other Disney parks, then this is the hotel for you!

Better than a bargain

The few hotels on Hotel Plaza Blvd are not well known, but are genius for anyone not wanting to spend thousands to stay at one of the WDW Monorail resorts. It is MORE convenient than the other WDW resorts that aren't on the monorail- they have Disney buses that run every half hour (and they are legit buses that run on schedule from before the parks open until well after they close). It's an 8 minute walk to Downtown Disney, so it is as good as it gets for any adult couples who like to go out at night. You get all the convenience of the Disney resorts without the Disney prices. Staff was so friendly- we got in early and they found a room for us- and every time we walked by a staff member we got a smile and a greeting whether it was 8am or 2am. Basic amenities, but comfortable with plenty of space. You know the difference between a nice hotel and a cut-rate one; the tiling in the bathroom, the comforter on the bed, the a/c unit. This place had all of the high end hotel stuff- it wasn't one of those cheaper hotels with the multi-colored polyester blankets and random cracks in the walls- it was all well-maintained high end stuff. Just 2 years ago I stayed at a cut-rate hotel (since I spend most of the trip at the parks, never cared about the hotel)- they offered 'free shuttles'. The shuttle from the cheap hotels is terrifying. There are 2 buses that run to every park each day- so it's never convenient- the bus has rust, feels like it is going to fall over, and the bus-driver is all over the road. The hotels around on Hotel Plaza Blvd get the nice air conditioned buses with legit drivers that run on time. The difference in price between these 2 experiences was $100 Total for a week. Laughable. This is why I did the extra research this time and stumbled upon the only hotels that are actually close to anything Disney.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

- Skip the breakfast at the hotel (from $12-$17)- wake up 10 minutes earlier, walk to Downtown Disney and get a $4 breakfast sandwich at the sandwich place there and a nice iced coffee. Walk back to the room real quick or just catch a bus from Downtown to a park. - Check out Disney's schedule for the week so you can plan which park to go to when. Worst feeling is when you spend a lot of $ for a half day.

Excellent option for Disney trip

We had a great trip to Disney thanks in part to this hotel. We stayed in the Pool Annex building - it was quieter and more secluded. Zero noise as well. The hotel amenities are first rate. It's a tremendous value overall.

In the center of it all

Hotel staff was competent, the room quite comfortable and good sized for the resort area. As I stayed for business, I was unable to partake in the amenities on site but it is directly across the street from Downtown Disney.
