Recent guest reviews

The smoke detector in our room had fallen from the ceiling and eventually started chirping about 4:30 am. I tried the two ice machines in our area and neither worked.

It was all around awesome! The woman in the front office was very nice. Nice location! Will definitely be going back.

Water wouldnt stop in bath tub and room phone didnt work. Told front desk and was fixed by time i got back later thar day. Nice pool and bar and putt putt golf on site. Kids play jungle too

The pool was nice. I like that it had a bar by the pool

This property is huge, convenient to everything. It’s a good basic place to stay. It shows wear & tear from repeated use. Staff was very friendly but for the amount of people checking in they seemed under staffed & overworked. They were very nice to me. I was very satisfied with everything. I wasn’t expecting a four star resort, just a clean, comfortable room & that’s what I got.

Rooms weren't clean shower water was lukewarm. I Called at 11pm to get it fixed no one showed up until almost 12am maintenance said he had to check the heater & never came back. I called the office again around 1 a.m. they said they would check on it by 1:40 no one came I called again to the office and they told me maintenance told them there was nothing they can do and they'll fix it in the morning. My morning no one came and I canceled my second night there and got another hotel

Pool and ididnt like the rooms no microwave and not clean enuff ihad to switch rooms iwanted to go to a different hotel

Was ok, as we didnt spend mych time there except to sleep. Phone was filthy, door to room filthy, couldve used a vacuuming. Quiet sleeping. Staff was great, customer service great. But microwave oven should be in room, not only for convenience, but safety reasons. Had to accompany family members after dark to lobby to use the only microwave oven on property. Had to wait to use it. Also restaurant was unaboe to see muffins or any breakfast to go. Had to buy whole buffet or nothing. Also not convenient when going on road trip to attractions every day.

Pool was nice but closed to early( Sunset). Restaurant and bar inside never opened the whole week we were there. Pizza Hut express and general store didn’t open till 4:00pm. Tiki bar by pool only bar open on resort. 3 to 9. For the price you get a place to sleep. In desperate need of general remodeling.

Nonsmoking room was filled with cigarette smell. Had to change rooms. facility is old, marginally clean, and basically outdated and run down.

I had no hot water to take a shower or in the sink. You could hear the people next to you when you were in the bathroom, like hear their conversations The tv channels sucked, have the channels you couldn’t see. I would stay again because of the price, that’s it.

The distance and convenience to disney properties is great. However , condition of hotel is very run down. Different from pictures on internet.

The pics of this so call Resort was very deceiving. The whole place needs cleanning, and the wall that hold up the roof needs to be repair. We were worried that our car wouldn't be there in the morning. You can hear every words yor neighbor's conversations, which lasted until midnight. Then there was a party in the pool at 7:30am, with alot of splashing, yelling, screaming, running up & down the hall. I would never in good consienciuo

property was quiet, clean, parking space was good, excellent staff, very friendly

Pleasant stay with frendly staff. Comfotable beds, clean room. Quiet over all and a nice pool.

Access to the pool was very nice. Lots of pool towels available if you went down early in the morning to get them. The room was cleaned as often as you requested and clean towels were placed in the room everyday. The rooms are worn but clean. Easy access to all attractions. Would definitely stay again.
