3-day visit

Because there are 3 of these same hotels within a couple of blocks, it took an extra half-hour to find the right one. Then, how to get in the place from accross the medium was a bit tricky. Other than that, the stay was fantastic. Parking was easy and the elevator was quick to the 6 floor. The huge room size was the best thing, along with really nice beds. The pool is the best hotel pool I have ever seen. Overall it was a fantasic visit.

Exellent Disney Trip!!!!

This hotel is the perfect place for a family looking to visit Disney but not stay at one of their resorts. Excellent proximity to parks, awesome pool and sprinkler area for the kids, and great Applebees attached where the kids ate free. Would suggest the room with the bunks if travelling with more than one kid. Room was extremely clean and staff was more than accomodating. Overall, great stay and would definitely stay again.
