Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

There's a pizza place right across the way called CiCi's that offers a great buffet for 6.99 for adults and I think 3.99 for kids. Pizza, pasta and salad.

Great locaton, close Universal

Room was comfortable and clean. Only thing is the rooms facing the expressway get noise from the road, but it's drowned out by the AC unit.

Almost perfect but concierge almost ruined it

Hotel is older but the room was totally renovated and very clean. Outdoor walkways are dated, narrow, but overall clean. Pool area and main office building are nice -- Concierge was awful and refused to call any other taxi company for us after "their" taxi service couldn't give a pick up time. She said it was their policy. Location is perfect for I drive and it was very reasonable -- just concierge really gave us a bad experience. S

great location and helpull staff

We only stayed one night, but everything was super clean, and everyone was very nice. Laminate floors that appeared to be hard wood in rooms so that they didn't accumulate bacteria like carpet. Shuttles to parks.

Overall a good stay.

We were in town for family events. Got a good deal on the hotel. Staff was friendly. The room was a little bit on the humid side. Everything was updated nicely. Had no issues with anything. For the price, you can't beat it.

Shattered my expectations

Couples getaway, we were seeking just one night's stay with a decent pool/bar area. This resort gave us everything and more for the price. They were the most cost effective out of all of our considerations yet cleanliness, staff, and atmosphere was beyond great. Room was spacious, bed was very comfy and we overlooked the pool without paying extra. We asked for late check out right away and got it with no hesitation. Location is VERY central, it only took us about 15 minutes to drive from Disney. Lots of restaurants and shops are within walking distance. I will gladly stay there again and/or recommend it to friends. Great job guys!
