Boost your energy levels with a bite at the poolside cafe, where burgers, pizza, salads and wraps are served, then join a game of beach volleyball in the hotel's sandy beach zone.

Great hotel!

Great location near restaurants on I drive. Rooms have non-carpet floor so it seems extra-clean. Nice staff and pool.

Good location

Family hotel, good location. close to theme parks and restaurants on international drive. no kettle in room, wifi in rooms for free. lots of parking for what we paid this was great. Was a bit unsure reading about previous experiences in this hotel by others, but don't let the haters change your mind. the hotel ain't that bad! generally I am very fussy!

many restaurants near by - also many supermarkets (smaller ones) I recommend buying from supermarkets and brining water and snacks etc to the theme parks.

First time in Orlando

It was a good hotel experience. The facilities to go to differents Disney parks in bus was perfect. Free shuttle to those parks. Good staff. Unfortunately they forgot to clean our room for one day

3 Day Stay

Nice hotel and location, but a bit on the downside. Clean room, clean lobby, but will not be mistaken for the Hilton. Would stay there again as price was right and suited my needs.

fantastic swimming

The pool area and hot tub are spectacular. The place could use a little touch ups-microwave in room would be great. Food in restaurant good but service is so very very slow. Beds are super comfy. Overall we enjoyed our stay! Pam & Dan, Massachusetts

Great Treasure to Stay

What a treasure to find this beautiful hotel and all it's amenities. Restaurant/Pool/Gym- everything you could want and everything within walking distance. Amazing little gem, so rarely does one find such a great place! I could walk to more restaurants/stores/clubs/Universal/fast food places. We had so much fun and all within the convenience of this hotel and location. This is definitely a true gem! Will be going back again - real soon!

Great Stay Good Value

The hotel looks like it was once something else but overall it was worth the money. The rooms were clean. I particularly liked the carpetless room floors that were mopped daily. I always felt that the hotel carpets were filthy.
