HORRIBLE! Zero maintenance and upkeep. Sheer shock w/the number of rooms and proximity to popular shops/attractions this place offers, the grounds and rooms are poorly cared for A couple was complaining at the front desk, when I arrived at 11PM for check-in. I cringed when I overheard their complaints, I was so tired from the drive. They had been moved to four different rooms over the course of their 4 night accommodation. Complaints I overheard: pest (roaches), outlets not working, keycard not woking, no electricity and mold. My personal findings: mold/dust, rust crusted show head, older heavily used furniture (peeling varnish), long webbing ceiling cracks, 1 roach spotted crawling on the floor in the morning.

They need new rugs they were filthy and very poorly maintained the moldings were dirty and grimy and the bathroom was horrible the toilet was loose

Hasn't been updated since the 80s but you get what you pay for. It's only a few miles from Disney so you can't beat the location. Staff is very helpful and friendly

Mini fridge not working AC unit damaged Dingy atmosphere

Nothing. I was bothered by lack of effort to ensure I was accommodated. I rented a king single and got a double and was not reimbursed for the night. I had to harass the front deck before they moved me to the room I actually paid for. That alone took 24hrs of my trip.

The rooms need microwaves. They advertise Pizza Hut and the store to be open, however I tried to get lunch twice and they were “gone till 4”.

At 8 am cleaning staff had a meeting in front of my window, followed by the housekeeper knocking on the door at 8:30 to ask when I was leaving, then leaving the cart in front of door making noises till I left at 10:30. The front door was kicked in before as the frame was damaged and door would not shut properly- door itself was bent. All-in-all a Motel 6 generally has a standard travelers understand nationally- though this place has a good location, and was quite beautiful in the 70’s or 80’s is is well run down now. Room and halls were at the standard of a very cheap establishment with little pride. Sorry did not utilize pool, breakfast or other services—but as a basic stay it was in acceptable at best.

It was a good priced hotel that did what we wanted it to. Had a heated pool, free breakfast, and air conditioning with a place to rest our heads and shower. It’s not a Disney resort but I didn’t expect it to be!

Very convenient to Disney, and very reasonable rates. Good selection of restaurants close by.

Heated outdoor pool, tiki bar and Pizza Hut on premises,

Location. Price. People friendly. Clean rooms. Quiet

Housekeeping keeps opened the door even wen the sing of not disturbing was on the door
