Meh!

I reserved a no smoking two bed room. The day before i called to verified my reservation and they told me eveything was in order. When we got there they give me a one bed smoking room, the smell was to intense and my alargies when wild. They change us to a worst room. It stinked, the rug was all durty and the bathroom, OMG!. The only good thing of this hotel is the location close to parks and the I-Drive.

Old hotel, internet doesn't work

People say "you don't get what you don't pay for", right? That's exactly what this hotel is about. Rooms are old, carpet is a little sticky, and the "free internet" didn't work in the room. I had to go to the lobby to use it. Staff was just ok - some of them speak Portuguese in case you are visiting from Brazil, which is good - but nothing special. Well, this is not the Rtiz Carlton, so.... Location is great, walking distance from restaurants and shopping areas. But I probably won't stay there again.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

If you have kids, and time, try to go to T-Rex @ downtown Disney. Kids love it! And parents can choose one of their great drinks to relax and enjoy the evening. They have some healthy options such as the salmon with pasta and vegetables or the grilled chicken with vegetables.

Family getaway

The free breakfast is a plus, staff is nice but the carpet on the room was very dirty, sticky, stinky. The room in general was clean except for the carpet.

Horrible experience

The room was over crowded with furniture. The refrigerator was so loud and ran all night,we had to unplug it. Also the ac ran all night never cycled off until we turned it off. There was more water coming out of the bottom of the shower instead of the showerhead. I had booked the hotel for two nights but cancelled my second night and all the hotel offered was to not charge the resort fee. I booked the room through a third party site and the hotel told them that they could only give back a discounted rate return for the second night. Not even close to half of what I paid.

not a 3 star hotel

The rooms were dirty, the rug fill with stains, not what you expect from a 3 start hotel. This will be more in the range of a 1 - 2 star hotel.

Great location for "park" visitors and good value for families

The staff was very friendly and helpful answering questions. This hotel is located in a very congested area, filled with other hotels and eating establishments. However, distance to the Disney experience is great and the hotel provides free shuttle to and from the parks, once in the morning and pick up in the evening. The rooms are tight and bathrooms small, but clean and well taken care of. This is not a luxury establishment, but very adequate for our simple needs.

Terrible experience!

There was a big Wasp in the bathroom my first night. The carpet in the room stinks like mold. The cleanliness in the room was not good at all. They had a poor attitude towards customers (very poor customer service). Lastly, I stayed there for three nights and I was never able to access their WiFi (I complained the first night and they never got it fixed). They are always right about everything and the customer is wrong.
