Nothing special, but good for the money

Check in was on the opposite side of the hotel from where you park, which was confusing. There was no one even there when I walked in, and I had to ask where the front desk was. They do have a small cafe and bar onsite, which is good for a nightcap or breakfast, and the prices are reasonable (if they are open). Parking is not great. They have one parking lot, on the side, and really not near anything. The hotel is not large, and there were probably less than a dozen people staying there when we were there, so parking wasn't bad during our stay, at least, but we were on the opposite side of the hotel from the parking lot. We were also on the opposite side from the pool. It would seem that with as few people checked in as they had, they could have given us a pool-view room instead of a view of the street, but that was just a peeve. There was an excellent buffet restaurant named "Wood Grill Buffet" just down the street. It is a large step up from Golden Corral and the others. The service and food are both much better. You are within 5 miles of Seaworld, Discovery Cove and Aquatica, and, if traffic is not bad, you can get there quickly because the hotel is on a little used area of I-Drive. Once you get into traffic, it can take much longer, but this only happened to us once.

Not 4 but 3 stars

Beautiful pool, but room was less than desired

When we first went in our room, it smelled bad. We went back to the front desk and said we required a new room or would leave. They were very kind and provided us a suite which was in nice shape, but would be compared to a general room to other hotels. Even the carpet in the suite was stained, and the shower had little to no hot water. The one positive I had for this hotel was that the pool was beautiful except that the hot tub was out of order. There was also no free breakfast which would would expect at a hotel like this.

Beautiful and Quiet Gem

The place was beautiful and well maintained. The staff was friendly and very responsive. They worked diligently on grounds-keeping and maintenance each day. Our pool was very nice and quiet. We had family at two other resorts, and they all liked this pool the best. We highly recommend this beautiful and quiet gem to anyone.

Great hotel

We have been going to Florida for many years now and this is the best hotel we have stayed at by far. The room was clean and comfortable and attended to everyday of our stay. The pool area was well looked after and there are many other facilities to take advantage of. All staff were extremely helpful and all lifts to floors and rooms were very accessible. This is where wil be staying in future. This hotel is situated on a quieter part of international drive but very near sea world, perfect.
