Great price and location

Great hotel! The room was an actual suite, it had a living room with a door to seperate it from the bedroom. The room had 2 flat screen TVs, mini frige and microwave. The room was very clean and updated. The beds had numerous pillows and down comforters. The free breafast buffet was impressive. It had hot scrambled eggs, bacon, home fries and made-to-order eggs and toast to keep everything fresh. It also had a juice/milk/coffee/soda bar and everything was all you can eat. This hotel was only 2 miles from the Disney parks. The staff was very friendly, they let us check in at 11am and leave our cars there while we were at the parks even after we checked out today. We are definately staying there again.

The hotel has a shuttle to the disney parks, but the drive is very short and the hotel is on World center drive which takes you straight to Disney parks and downtown Disney--only 2 miles!

Excellent hotel

This hotel was the perfect choice for us! Our group included ages 17 to 79 sharing the room. We had a small delay at check-in, a little confusion about our reservation but it was quickly and happily resolved. The room was spotless and well laid out. The complimentary full breakfast buffet was really good. The pool and spa area was average, and like everything else, very clean. We didn't use the fitness room, but it looked very nice. Two of us ate in the restaurant the first night, and the food was EXCELLENT. Most dining choices were not within walking distance, but were only a few minutes by car. There was a drug store and a Chinese restaurant right across the street with some other stores. (We did not go there) Very close to Disney World & Nickelodeon Studios. Lake Buena Vista Outlet Mall was only a short drive, and this hotel had a complimentary shuttle (which we didn't use). It's also close to Orlando's Prime Outlets. This was a really nice hotel for a fair price. Comfortable, friendly and everything you could need. I would stay here again and would recommend it to others.

Good Value

Because this is near Disney property, there are lots of families, children, and tour buses. The hotel is clean and has a full breakfast buffet, including made-to-order eggs. The rooms are 2 room suites with the bedroom to the back which is a good thing. Parents let their little ones run and scream in the hallway so it was very noisy during the afternoons if you are sitting the the front part of the suite. No problem sleeping at night as the little ones were in bed and our bedroom was at the back of the suite. Every day there were bus loads of teenagers there for parades at Disney. This caused a hectic and noisy breakfast if you arrived at the same time as the youth.

Great Rooms

The location is superb, close to everything. Breakfast a nice touch. Fantastic rooms that WERE really clean. The pool area was not that nice and they could probably use a bigger pool. The only staff I encountered was the front desk and that was blah. I didn't really feel special even though this was our first vacation.

Unless you want to waste time, stay away from the "extra" desk where you can purchase park tickets and be hounded to view properties.

Fair deal

The hotel overall was ok. The breakfast buffet was also ok, except that they need to change their fruit selection more often. Most of the staff were friendly except for the Asst Manager Trainee who was always curt--while checking in people and for inquiries--don't think she deserves the position. Location was ok relative to the disney parks with shuttles. Nothing much else nearby you can walk to though so you need a car or depend on taxis. Regarding their pool, looks like it needs some cleaning, after swimming on our last day we all returned home with ringworms.

You gotta see it to believe it!

I would definitely stay there again. I have been to Disney World Orlando several times, and this by far has been the best accommodations ever. You walk out of the hotel, blink your eyes, and you are at the doorstep of all the Disney Theme parks.

Great Value

Staff was very friendly and responsive. Breakfast was very ample in selection. Initially we were apprehensive since the door lock was broken and we were in an area that seemed more vulnerable to quick break ins. When we called to report this, a friendly, focused maintenance guy came promptly and changed the lock. Great choice for families needing space and comfort, but too busy to enjoy the pool and grounds.(very basic at this property) The adjacent sister resort "The Caribe" had a nicer full resort/great pool and public spaces appeal, but did not include free breakfast which was a higher priority during our busy days visiting the theme parks. Would stay again. Close proximity to International Drive and World Drive was a good alternate to congested 535 and 1-4

Having a fridge allowed us to keep basic snacks/refreshments handy...to cut down on food expenses. Free breakfast helps too...as well as being a good time saver in the morning.
