This place was a perfect spot for us to sleep for the two nights we were in Orlando to visit Disney and Universal. Be warned, it isn’t the Ritz and the place is a bit run down on the exterior but the rooms are clean and the pools are in good shape. We felt safe and the location and price can’t be beat.

Recommend. They clean everyday and it’s nice coming back to your room having your bed done for you. Staff was very nice and attentive. I overall had a good experience. Also very close to Disney World so that’s a plus.

The room upon arrival was large and nicely decorated. The beds and pillows were comfortable. Decent shower. But we had a cookie left from Disney and within hours it was completely covered with tiny bugs. My husband left with bug bites all over! The store across the street was a scary experience and made us question the safety of the area.

Roomy and comfortable. Plenty of hot water in shower. Wish there was a microwave, though. Wifi works fine. Nice property for strolling around with large courtyard and pools. Shopping and other services nearby. Great central location!
