Really just a 2 star

The hotel looks like in it's hey day may have been a very nice place to stay but it seems to have undergone major budget cuts. Although the beds were very comfortable, the pool and rooms are old and not very clean. The plug on the lamp had electrical type tape on it and did not seem very safe. The bathroom was quite small. The pool seemed kind of murky, and not very clean. The exercise room had limited equipment, and not very sanitary.

Sheraton Safari

The hotel is on a very busy street so noise a factor. Housekeeping didn't get to the room until after 4 PM and only when we called about it. Hotel is "low rent" and in need of a major makeover.

A deal with a catch

We got a great rate, in a convenient location, but it came with inconvenience. We did not have a "Do Not Disturb" doortag in our room, which was cause for the housekeeping staff knocking on doors at 8:30 each morning. The noise level in the hallway could easily be heard from within the room, making it difficult to sleep. Saturday night parking was horrible with security staff directing us to parallel park next to a curb in the middle of the traffic lane. Lastly, we had constant problems with the TV reception, which was aggravating.

January 2010 Hotel Stay

Very close to disney parks which was perfect for us. Shuttle service was offered for free however trips to parks were every 2 hours so planning is required. Free shuttle service is not offered to magic kingdom. Great Service. Clean rooms. Pet friendly but pets are not allowed to be in room with no supervision. Room service is offered. No free breakfast but there is a buffet. No free wireless internet in room but can get free access down in the hotel restaurant while it is open. Hotel was noisy in the early morning with kids but that is to be expected at a family hotel. We did visit the hotel during non season so quality could decrease when more people need service. Hotel seems like it was a great hotel back in 1990 but needs to be updated to the 21st century. Overall, average hotel and a good deal considering the price.

Vacation without kids or grandkids

This hotel was perfect for our getaway vacation to Disney World.We were happy to find that our dog was welcome for free. Not wanting to leave our pet alone in the room we were only 5 minutes from Fort Wilderness Kennel where we left her daily. The room was very good size and staff was plesant and always accomodating. We would stay here again.

Decent hotel for the price

The hotel was clean and the staff was friendly. My only complaint is that the "complimentary shuttle service" to the Disney parks wasn't always convenient. In some cases, you had one bus leaving in the morning for the park. As a result, we ended up spending more $ in cab fares. We liked being able to walk to nearby restaurants.

IN TERRIBLE NEED OF RENOVATION

The location to all the sights was excellent. We played golf and visited Epcot Center. The hotel itself was in dire need of renovation, we wouldn't recommend a stay there. Restaraunt and bar area had a very musty smell and was not a place we would have dined at. We found dirty towels stuffed in the chair under the desk when we arrived which was pretty disgusting and we didn't receive a room cleaning one day.
