Good value

- It is close to the downtown Disney area. - Bus #50 stops right in front of the hotel - You can take this bus to go to Magic Kingdom and transfer to other parks using the free park shuttle. - Free parking and free shuttles to the parks. - There is no need for a rental car if you decide to stay. - Hotel itself was very comfortable.

Family friend, clean, basic amenities

I was on business travel and stayed at this hotel out of convenience and because I was trying to save on budget. I'd consider it much more of a family/vacation hotel than a business hotel, but it was comfortable nonetheless. Overall a good value for the price.

It is a nice hotel, with excellent location. Has a shuttle service to Disney. The buffet option is good for the price. I would go back again. The pool was excellent.

Weekenders

We went to Orlando for the weekend to visit the disney parks. The hotel is conveniently located near downtown disney. The hotel was clean and the furnishings had been updated. The bathroom could use some work but it was also clean. We spent some time by the pool. The pool area was well kept and the tranquil. They have a breakfast buffet in the lobby. It wasn't great but it was easy and cheaper than eating at the theme park. I would stay there again for that type of stay.

Good location

The location was convenient to Disney parks. The room was a nice size, but the awkward configuration of the bathroom and one of the beds blocked the view of the TV in the bedroom when the door was open. The room was extremely humid, so the furniture was moist. The beds were comfortable. There were ants on the kitchen counter and the nightstand. We just had to be careful not to keep food there. The hotel offers transportation to the theme parks, but we did not use this, because of the limited pick up times. The breakfast was very good - a buffet with a lot of selections and omelets cooked to order. The hotel staff were very courteous and friendly.
