3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I like the overall experience and wonderful service

This hotel is close to area attractions. It is clean and quiet.

Great location, right off highway and close to amusement parks, clean, good choice of furniture, clean room, friendly staff, swimming pool. Very good price. Recommend to anyone visiting Orlando for vacation.

For the price paid this hotel is excellent and I did not find any of the negative reviews that I read to be correct. Yes this is not a 5-star hotel, and the bathroom is a bit small. But that is because it has a huge, new shower and the toilet is a bit crammed. So what? Do you really need to dwell in the bathroom? There is large sinks outside the toilet room with nice granite counters, the beds were super comfy and the TV worked great. We only were there to sleep and it was very close to all the parks. I will definitely come here again - you can't beat the value for the price you pay. I have tried a lot of hotels in the area for $50-$70/night and they were bad. This one was Great!

We arrived after an all night flight from Seattle. The lady at the front desk was not pleasant. She wanted to charge me a $35 early check in fee. I said I didn't want to pay that much and she waived it. So be ware of that. the housekeeping staff was very nice and accommodating. We were there 3 nights and for the price I would stay there again. They would not let us out of the last night when our plans changed.

Great!!! Very Clean the room looks brand new like it just opened a few days ago.

We were trying to get a last minute room on Disney property, but nothing was available. We got a very good deal on a room here, and driving onto Disney property everyday was super easy! The room was clean and comfortable and the front desk staff was very helpful. Would stay again for sure!

Great customer services- the staff was so friendly and sweet. I'll definitely return and recommend this hotel to my friends.

I would never recommend this hotel to anyone. The bathroom door couldn't be close all the way because it hit the toilet. One night I attempted to call the front desk because one of the bedsheets had a really gross blood stain. They never answer my calls. I never found towels in my room so every night I had to go to the front desk to ask for towels. Also, one time I talk to girl at the front desk to complain about it and she was very rude. Didn't even bother to look at me while I was talking with her. If you think this is bad just wait, my room door was left open couple of days after the hausekeeper clean up the room. The only positive thing, the room was clean.

The buildings exterior is completely different than the interior of the rooms. Rooms were clean and appear to have recently been updated. Inexpensive and clean option, I would stay again for the < $70 rate.

Comfortable and clean room. close to Disney. We have a good stay, swimming pool looks good, but we didn't get chance to enjoy it.

Pros : Hotel near to disney world theme parks. Restaurants, I drive, shopping is close by. Comfortable stay for the pay. Cons: Water smells very bad like recycled waste water. No refrigerator in the room. Families with kids may face uncomfortable.

Ok place to stay at. Did not like how the bathroom space was so small.

Hotel staff was no so professional or knowledgeable about reservations. Rooms were clean and adequate for price and close to Disney parks.

Very noisy, just too much. People up stairs keep jumping around. The next room over kept slamming the door all night. The room was not clean. Everything in the room was old. Car alarms were going off all night. It was like living in the South Bronx, NYC. I asked the front desk if I could change my room. The answer was no way! If you have to stay here make sure you get a room facing the inside court yard, so you are not too close to the parking lot. Getting a room on the 2nd floor will help with the noise. Orbits has this hotel listed as having free breakfast. There is no food in this hotel. So you could forget about breakfast.

This is a 2 star hotel in my book. Needs updates. Staff is nice though. Beds not that comfortable.

Nice,clean easy check in and check out,hotel staffs are friendly and helpful

Great hotel and great location to Disney!! The hotel was clean and the staff was wonderful!! Close to all types of food and shopping! Rooms were large and spacious!!!

When you pull up, the hotel looks old. I was told that they had a restaurant in the hotel but it is "under construction" but I don't see any construction, i just see an area that used to be a restaurant that is closed down. I chose this hotel because it had a restaurant. Misleading! The room is actually very nice and newly remodeled. Bed is very soft and the pillows are great. I'm happy with the room. Old hotel in the process of a remodel. You get what you paid for, I understand that, but misleading about the restaurant.

barely making the "value for money" criterion. had higher expectations. looks and feels like a low budget hotel.

it should be one star hotel

I would never recommend this hotel to anyone. The bathroom door couldn't be close all the way because it hit the toilet.
