The room was very large and spacious. We were impressed with the size for a two double bed room. There was a refrig, microwave, and Keurig with four coffees and two teas. The shower had bottles of JR Watkins shampoo, conditioner, and body wash in them. The bathroom had nice storage options with the sink and the shower had two shelves which… Read more
The room was very large and spacious. We were impressed with the size for a two double bed room. There was a refrig, microwave, and Keurig with four coffees and two teas. The shower had bottles of JR Watkins shampoo, conditioner, and body wash in them. The bathroom had nice storage options with the sink and the shower had two shelves which were convenient to hold your products. Make sure you turn the water on before you pull up the shower lever or the walls will vibrate. The shower pressure was horrible and shower head too low. The beds were comfy. I would have given a slightly higher rating if hte internet had worked. It never would let us connect to it. All in all, it was a nice stay with some nice conveniences. Read less

Great stay for the the price paid! The staff were excellent, Tyler, Fabian and Francesca were a pleasure to deal with. Very close to everywhere Disney that you want to be, and just a hop over the highway to Disney Springs. The pool and Tiki bar were a big hit with the family, something for everyone.

I haven’t been able to travel here since feb 2020, best hotel for location, value, space, onsite amenities etc. I cannot fault them. DONT PAY STUPID MONEY FOR A DISNEY HOTEL ROOM THAT IS HALF THE SPACE OF THIS ROOM AND DOUBLE THE PRICE FOR DRINKS AND SNACKS! Can’t wait stay again soon 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿🤞😘

I really wanted to love this hotel, there was a lot of potential for sure! Staff was super pleasant, very friendly and accomodating. Having the little shop open and the familiar Applebees nearby was great. I checked in late and was able to go right in and grab something to eat. Everything was clean and the room was spaceous. Issues -- there was some sort of panel on my wall that fell off so there was essentially a hole in the room of my hotel. The phones were old and crackly on the line. One of the outlets was super loose, and I couldn't even plug anything into it. The outlets are not conviently located for cell phone charging and there are no USB ports on any of the outlets. So plan to bring plugs and very long charging cords if you're staying here and need to charge up your phone and other devices at the end of the day. I didn't use the pool, but it looked very nice and everyone there seemed to be having a great time. The elevator broke on my last day there, and was still broken at check-out. Having to climb to the 5th floor at the end of my vacation and carry my luggage down was exhausting. But considering I got such a good deal on a discount hotel site, not too bad. Read less
