We stayed a few days in May we left something behind in our room and have contacted the hotel at least 4 times via phone and e mail and they never can even find the correct room number nor do they return the call even after taking your information and saying they will.

My son and I stayed here for five nights for a last minute Disney World trip. I booked through a third party site and had no issues upon checking in. They offer a free shuttle to the area parks and return shuttles to pick you up. We used the shuttle everyday and only one day we used an uber to come back from WDW as we stayed until 1:30am. Very close to Disney! There were two pools, a coffee shop serving Starbucks and an outdoor bar on the property. I felt that the hotel was nice, especially for the price, and I would happily stay here again. The only complaint I have is one day we took a later shuttle to the parks and it showed up about 30 minutes late and only after someone complained and the hotel called the service. We almost missed our dining reservations, I had to move them to 45 minutes later than planned. Read less

Should have taken the reviews seriously. Pictures were deceiving. Once we exit the elevator, we noticed bags of dirty linen and trash scattered through out the hallways. As we walked down the hallway to our room, numerous doors were open displaying trashed room one by one by one. Hallway smelled of trashed, body order etc... Not one staff was on the floor. Upon arrival to our room, we opened the door to a dozen "To Go" menus on the floor, obviously Housekeeping had not visited the room for who knows when. Water leak on the wall, used hair band on the floor, trash on the floor, hair on the bathroom floor, not sure if the bed was made-it was sloppy with hair, crumbs on the table and so on... I then told Front Desk that I wanted to cancel my reservation for I was moving. They honored the cancellation without question for they knew their rooms were dirty; unfortunately, the entire stay deposit was held for five days! Which left me looking for a clean place the last minute... Worst experience. I'd give them 0 rating if possible. On a final note, I asked for Management to call me; They never did!!! Read less

The hotel is under renovation and was not told anything until check in. so there were elevators out of service. The rugs in the hallways and the rooms are dirty and it smell muggy. Also, my room AC was set at 66. If I were to set it at 67, it was like the heater was on so I couldn’t change the temperature and the AC wouldn’t turn off. Also, there… Read more

Also, my room AC was set at 66. If I were to set it at 67, it was like the heater was on so I couldn’t change the temperature and the AC wouldn’t turn off. Also, there is only an ice machine and vending machine on even floors not odd floors. My bathroom didn’t look nice either. There were cracks here and there that had crappy fixing and another thing I didn’t like was I would always see a group of 3-5 housekeeping people by the elevators just chatting and on their phone while we pass by. I understand if you want to chat but I have worked in a hotel before and that is not professional. That is done where guest do not see. Overall the hotel needs a lot of work and it was a bit pricey for what I got. Read less
