This hotel was the best family hotel I have stayed in. Staff member Jacqueline was extremely accommodating and allowed our family a late check out. Minor issues were addressed promptly ( lamp not working) and our room was large,well equipped with a fridge, microwave, safe, coffee maker and hairdryer. The hotel had a lovely pool, spray area and hot tub with Tiki Bar. There was a corner store inside open until midnight, an arcade, video area, business area, and an Applebee’s attached. If you book your Disney Vacation through Costco you get a 25$ coupon for each day you can use towards Applebee’s or the Tiki bar plus kids under 12 eat free. The hotel will also allow grocery delivery from Walmart saving you more money on food and snacks. The hotel has a complementary shuttle to Walt Disney World, Universal Studios and Seaworld. Everything is clean and modern in the hotel and there is even coin operated laundry onsite. It is close to Disney World and Disney Springs. Absolute most friendly and accommodating staff. Would recommend this hotel 100%. Read less

This hotel is by far the best hotel stay we’ve ever had. We had the wonderful opportunity to work with Jacqueline at the front desk when we checked in. She was beyond helpful and made check in so easy. All of the staff was wonderful and we had such a wonderful time.

Due to stay for 16 nights but checking out early due to lack of cleaning room, we didn’t come on holiday to clean the room and bathroom ourselves, Would not recommend. Read less

Stayed 1 night- ending up extending 3 more because it’s a good place. Plenty of parking- had a trailer for work- and after a week in Miami it was good to know there was somewhere to park when I got back. They have a restaurant in the building- Applebees.

Stayed 1 night- ending up extending 3 more because it’s a good place. Plenty of parking- had a trailer for work- and after a week in Miami it was good to know there was somewhere to park when I got back. They have a restaurant in the building- Applebees. Didn’t really do anything but sleep and get ready for the next day- but it seems like it’s a great family place. Good for business travel though. Highly recommended. Jackie at the front counter was the best! Thanks Jackie! Read less

The location is excellent, the hotel has good rooms with good facilities for the budget level but the stand out here has been the service. From initial setting up of three complicated back to back bookings (Doris), to sorting out the best available room (Bryan) and making working from the room in between trips very efficient to handle breakfast (Allison) the staff really have gone the extra mile to make this work stay as enjoyable as possible.
