Indulge in the Sunshine State's playful side at the swimming pool - adults can swim laps in one section of the oversized pool, while the kids splash around in waterfalls and fountains near the beach-entry area. 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.

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 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.

You go there for the wings ... at least that what I tell people. You have a lot of other great choices as well.

I'll stay there again

The only complaints I had was that there was no microwave in the room, and only one molded fiberglass chair (at the desk). A more comfortable additional chair to watch TV in would have been nice. Great location and staff!

Loved the pool, wasn't impressed with the beds or house keeping. You get what you pay for with the price though. Overall, had a good experience.

Good Deal

This hotel does exactly what it is supposed to do, provide a clean place to rest and relax between the local attractions. The only think I would dock the hotel for was that in my room, the tub drain was slow.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

There are many shops in the area. The best tip I can provide is that you should try to do any gift shopping as early as possible, so that you don't just settle for something less than desired and with less thought.

Good value stay

I was at this hotel for a short time for a three day stay. The staff was friendly, pool was large and very nice. The pool bar was a good time and the food was above average. The bar staff was friendly and accommodating. The street it was located was extremely busy, but had every choice of restaurant imaginable within walking distance to the resort. The negatives were the walls were paper thin, gentleman staying next to me actually kept me awake from his snoring. The air conditioners in the room were so loud as well and unfortunately when they stopped in the middle of the night i heard the gentleman next door snoring ! The hotel, however, was good value for the money and in a good location to Disney. Lots of families who appeared to be having fun and enjoying themselves. Overall glad i booked.
