Not a good stay. First two nights drunks are running up and down the hallway in the middle of the night, moved to another room and this one had 10% of the shower in black mold. Talked with management about someone just cleaning it up and not done in 3 days. Not going back

I don't know why others may review this property poorly.... I had a great stay....Again!! My recent visit was with my in-laws and my kids. My mother-in-law is particular about hotels and is not very mobile, so a quality property and easy access are essential to us when we travel. We checked into our rooms but due to a little issue w my in-laws, we had to change to other rooms. We were so surprised that the manager herself, would be glad to personally assist us in the move. We had to move to a lower floor because of limited mobility and Betty the manager not only took us personally to see the new rooms, she ensured the bellman would be along to help us all out!! The new rooms were just fine and the rest of our stay was fantastic. We will return and recommend this property to anyone. Great staff throughout the property but Betty should be commended for going above and beyond to help us out. See you again in June!! Read less

This will be maybe my 3rd review ever, but I need to write this one!! My wife and I had business/ pleasure in Fl. Due to circumstances, we needed to stay near Disney. We flew all night and were extremely tired. We were greeted by Betty Hintemeyer, who couldn't have been more accommodating and friendly!! She even walked with us to show us where the 6000 building and our room was. To us, that was incredible customer service to start off our stay! She was super busy but couldn't have been more willing to help us find our room! We encountered her several times during our stay and feel like we made a life long friend!! We loved the two pools, the gorgeous property and the DJ, who played fun music while we soaked up the sun. The property seemed to be undergoing some renovations, but that was not an issue for us and easily overlooked based on the customer service we received from all the staff!! Thanks for an incredible time!! Read less

My bathroom doesn’t have a glass enclosure or a tub it’s just a space with a curtain and the shower head is in the center or a rectangular shape space that’s just open so the water gets everywhere. I’ve had to use my towels after showering to catch the water that flooded the bathroom.

I was at this property during New Years, and I have to say that I was far from disappointed. Upon check-in Betty Hintemeyer was very friendly and made me feel very welcome, I look forward to coming back around the summer time and seeing the beautiful upgrades to the property. Thank you Betty!
