Mini Vacation

Hotel was in a great location. Just be aware you get what you pay for. We had an exterior room with a view of the parking lot. The room furniture was updated but the room was worn. Maintenance needs to pay attention to details. Furniture was chipped, grout needs to be cleaned, AC sounded like it was going to fall out of the ceiling at any moment. The staff could have cared less how my stay was. And the taxes for your stay your stay are crazy. I have stayed at numerous resorts and this was not my version of a resort this was just a plain hotel/motel. Would not stay at this particular hotel again.

Meh...

The best thing about this hotel is the location. That is IF you are interested in spending time at Downtown Disney. The hotel provides a shuttle to and from Disney's theme parks. However, the shuttle was never on time and was always over crowded....dangerously over crowded. It is supposed to be on a schedule, but you could never tell when it was going to come. We have stayed at other hotels where the shuttle ran like clock work...even in the busiest of holiday seasons. We were a bit concerned that this hotel was an old property. The room was clean and recently renovated, a bit small, low ceilings, but reasonable. The beds and linens were acceptable. The maid service was spotty. They never properly cleaned our bathroom and never vacuumed the floors. The do not disturb sign was small, and there was no way to secure it to the outside of the door. We did our best to put it out at night, only to find that it blew away and were awaken by the hotel staff nearly every morning. Breakfast: One morning my daughter wanted to go to the character breakfast buffet. We had coupons for her to eat free. (It still was 30 for the two of us to eat.) They automatically include a tip. Not really a great deal for one child and one adult. The food was horrible. The have an omelet station. After waiting 15 minutes, I received a burnt omelet. Normally, I would have asked for them to redo it, but after watching this women prepare all of the people in front of me, it was clear that should couldn't make a decent omelet if her life depended on it. The food on the buffet was equally disappointing. There was french toast stuffed with apples. Sounded good....but after I got back to my table I realized that it was simply a piece of french toast, cut in half, spread with cream cheese and blueberry jelly. One bit was all I could stomach. They also had "quiche"...other wise known as over cooked baked scrambled eggs, no crust, no cheese, spinach, ham or any other added ingredients. I could go on and on. The only edible thing I found was the fresh fruit. (Thankfully that is really hard to screw up.) The Mickey waffles were also pretty good...maybe I was just really hungry by that point. Do yourself a favor, if you want a decent breakfast, don't eat here. And then there was the invitation to the time share. We were told that if we went to a 2 hour presentation, we would be given a wonderful breakfast and promised a 6 night/7 day vacation to the property. Needless to say, the breakfast was cold scrambled eggs, undercooked bacon and sausage, and yogurt. Not really wonderful...barely edible. We had a 20 month old child with us. At one point of the presentation they started to talk about the various properties and showed pictures of the accommodations. Having stayed previously at one of these locations, I mumbled to my husband that not all of the locations look like that. They promptly removed us from the room. Which was fine. But then they tried to say it was because my daughter was being loud. The entire rest of our visit to the sales pitch was filled with vague statements. My husband and I were seriously considering buying a timeshare. So we asked several specific questions. Not only did they not give us direct answers, but they took offense to our questions, didn't take them seriously, and treated us disrespectfully. The entire experience was extremely off putting. If we do buy a timeshare, it won't be through them. Bottom line, don't go to the presentation. The promise of 7 day vacation can only be booked 30 days in advance and really isn't worth much. Because of all of the strings attached to this "voucher" I'm not even sure that we will get an opportunity to use it. Oh and the promised 2 hour presentation took more like 4 hours, and we didn't attend the entire formal presentation. Just wished that they were honest about the time commitment and the voucher don't waste my time.

2015 1/2 marathon Disney trip

We stayed for the Disney run 1/2/marathon. The hotel was nice and convenient. It would have been top notch had they offered a free breakfast race morning. But it is a very nice hotel and we plan on staying there next year. Thank you.
