Couryard by Marriot bugs

Thought hotel was ok until the bugs came out. The cleaning of hotel room was not good at all. No help from reception I had to fix printer issue when it came up. The internet worked good in lobby and the pool/hot tub was awesome. Other than that I was very upset about how the rooms were cleaned and that the bugs possibly they were ants were all over the bathroom and table by the beds. Will not go back.

Wonderful stay

I spent two nights here for a conference. The front desk staff was wonderfully accommodating. The location is great, the plaza across the street is almost as convenient as having a restaurant in th hotel, which was the one thing that i was missing! Overall, a great trip, and I would definitely stay there again!

There is a wonderful Irish pub across the street in the plaza, which for a NY girl like me, was great. Good chicken wings, great beef on weck, and they had Labatts Blue Light, which is like gold anywhere outside Canada and New York!

Close to the theme parks & great staff.

The staff were all amazing. The location was perfect. The hotel and room seemed a little dated or older than expected. It did have a number of resort amenities that may be great for other families or for longer stays. They were necessary for me this vacation, but nice to have available on site. There was an issue with the usual FL sweet ants, I did bring it up to desk and they said they would spray, but I declined due to not wanting bug spray around. We lived with them (used to them living in the state). Not a huge issue. The room was clean. It was missing a microwave, which I needed. One was instantly brought to room. Great service. The appliance was a bit worn out/very used looking, but it worked for the week. Small gift shop on site was nice to have. Hotel located across street from numerous restaurants and only 6-10 minutes from parks depending on traffic or time of day. My only negative criticism is of the hotel chain's rewards program as I booked this hotel through travel site only to find out after the fact that I would not receive credit for my stay as a long time hotel rewards member. I was told it had to be booked through them. So, I will most likely continue to use third party site and not choose same chain locations to stay on next disney trip. I know I could have found a newer, cleaner hotel same distance away for probably less if not getting member rewards. Overall the hotel stay was just average (except for staff and location). I would not stay again only because I can find less expensive and more updated hotel without unneeded resort amenities.

excellent value and comfort

This hotel was perfect. Not only was the cost less than others nearby, however the service was excellent. Extras such as a microwave and bed were free, plus they have nice paul mitchelle toiletries. One day, we missed the Disney bus as we mistook which van to take so they comped us a cab. Very nice staffI
