The hotel

A sparkling new addition to the Kissimmee holiday scene, with everything you need for a theme park holiday (plus some rather fun perks thrown in on top). Located just three miles from the gates of Walt Disney World®, this brand new hotel features beautifully appointed rooms. Enjoy complimentary coffee from the café before you set off for the theme parks. When you return, you can soothe those ride-ravaged muscles with a soak in the heated outdoor pool and a float in its ultra-relaxing lazy river, or a stretch in the fitness room’s yoga zone, before tucking into homemade tortillas and fiery guacamole at its Mexican restaurant.

We stayed 3 nights there, for the money we paid we can’t complain. Everything in the room was clean except for some mold in the bathroom shower. The Mexican restaurant/ bar was ok. The bartender was very slow the waitress ended up going behind the bar to make their own drinks. But we’ll go back

We were sleeping and heard a wet dry vac around 11:00pm. There as a man using a wet/dry vac outside our room. They also used a floor polisher which was loud too! I called the front desk twice with no results. I went to the lobby and spoke with them. They called security and still nothing. I asked for the manager to call me three times and that did… Read more
We were sleeping and heard a wet dry vac around 11:00pm. There as a man using a wet/dry vac outside our room. They also used a floor polisher which was loud too! I called the front desk twice with no results. I went to the lobby and spoke with them. They called security and still nothing. I asked for the manager to call me three times and that did not happen the next day. I was told there was no manager on duty. Over an hour later, the man finished the floor. Isn’t a hotel for sleeping at night? Why would they do this? Why wouldn’t they treat a paying customer with respect? This is not ok… just pay less or more and try to find something better or at least a company that appreciates your business. Really sad… See attached pictures displaying the grime in the bathroom. Absolutely disgusting. Read less

We had a minor hiccup at check-in as they didn’t have the room available that we paid for. The girl checking me in found a reasonable alternative, though. She did a great job and was a customer service pro. The room itself was nice and comfortable with a good view of the pool area. The pool area was also nice.

We had a minor hiccup at check-in as they didn’t have the room available that we paid for. The girl checking me in found a reasonable alternative, though. She did a great job and was a customer service pro. The room itself was nice and comfortable with a good view of the pool area. The pool area was also nice. The lazy river felt good on a hot day and was relaxing. The bartender at the bar next to the pool was fantastic and definitely knew how to make a great margarita. The only real negative was the breakfast. I’m not sure whether this is the fault of the hotel or the restaurant attached to it, but the breakfast was a disgrace. There’s no other way to describe it. We entered a few minutes after they opened and the place was super disorganized. It took them several minutes just to find silverware for us. $12 for a breakfast “buffet” that’s free at every other hotel. It was literally the same stuff you get at free hotel breakfasts, except worse. Rubbery eggs, dried-up potatoes, pancakes that tasted & felt several days old, tasteless fruit (how do you screw up fruit in Florida?!). Also, not a grain of salt or pepper to be found. We should have gotten a clue when we were the only people there. We had to hunt someone down just to pay. Other than the breakfast leaving a bad taste in our mouths (literally), everything was great. Just don’t waste your money on the breakfast. -The PowerTrippers Read less
