Recent guest reviews

Second time staying here. Kiddie pool perfect for my little ones.

Quick trip and got what I thought was a good deal for a Marriott. Turns out, I think the name was the only think related to the Marriott brand. Never stayed in a Motel 6 but that's what it felt like. Ok, but not like any Marriott I've ever stayed in. Clean, comfortable but would look for a different hotel next time.

Close off Disney campus location. Older but clean and tidy. Was surprised that our room was a suite. Close to restaurants. Pleased to see ample amounts of towels. At tv in the bedroom and common area. I would return!

Terrible, musty, dingy, dirty creepy hotel, worst place I stayed in 30 years

Staff was very helpful and informative. Location perfect easy to get to main tourist attractions but far from Orlando airport and no public transit available. Taxi costs $55.00 each way. Bedding was dirty and toiletries were used but staff immediately rectified the problem.

The hotel is really close to the parks, clean and the staff very friendly

Does not meet Marriott standards. room dirty with mold bed uncomfortable great location but nowhere near a Marriott property I've grown to be a custom too.

Check in was fast, the room was clean and comfy, had a minifridge and flat screen tv.

Phone did not work, called the front desk about the water left for us ~ was it free, yes. Shower head was loose, described the problem in detail on the card and again with the front desk staff, thought they should take care of it, or you may have a leak.....

Make sure you bring a credit card. If you use debit they will hold your funds until you leave the hotel.

Staff very friendly -room pretty clean but dust ruffle on bed very dirty. Looked like blood and dirt on both beds and shower curtain ripped and torn. Otherwise very nice and quiet comfortable beds.

I stayed only one night at this hotel. One staff was not very friendly but she had done what she need to do. The parking was a little bit awkward but OK. Room was clean but a little bit old.

Counter staff was very disappointing, started my stay in a very negative way, and had request towel to room and they never came,

Staff was great. Nice clean room, great location. Had issue with TV and it was resolved very quickly. Good parking.

the service is good and the room is clean and tidy.But the deposit was wrong when we checked in and it took 6 business days until the money pay back to my account.

Stayed 4 nights and very satisfied. They had a fire with an AC unit in a room down the hall, and the staff had things cleaned up and smelling normal very quickly.

We've stayed in this hotel before and always had good experiences. We have only one complaint about our latest stay. Apparently, the hotel had just purchased new pillows and they were very uncomfortable..., too thick and hard.

Overall everything was great!! My only complaint is that the air conditioner was kinda loud.

Old hotel but clean. Good service. Quiet...very good for family.
