Nice helpful staff, clean rooms, and restaurants near by. They do offer shuttles to the parks which was a plus. This hotel was more than expected. We had a awesome time and would visit again for sure.

I’d like to leave a better review. The staff were lovely and helpful, and it’s not their fault that children screech from 9am til 11pm. I knew what we were getting into going to Disney in July. However, there are design and quality flaws all over. I got a refund for my pre-purchase of breakfast (which is at the attached Applebee’s) because the… Read more
I’d like to leave a better review. The staff were lovely and helpful, and it’s not their fault that children screech from 9am til 11pm. I knew what we were getting into going to Disney in July. However, there are design and quality flaws all over. I got a refund for my pre-purchase of breakfast (which is at the attached Applebee’s) because the “hot” food in the breakfast buffet was cold to lukewarm - poor/dangerous food handling. There were no working ice machines anywhere near our room or the tower we were staying in. The balcony was an upgrade, I thought it would be lovely, they are boxes built into the building so reduce the space in the room and they get no air circulation - and the A/C from the room vents directly onto the balcony bathing you in extremely hot air. Truly unpleasant. Why is the bed so high, I literally had to get a chair to use as a step stool to get on it. Again, besides being accosted by the time-share guy in the lobby the staff were lovely and tried to be helpful. This is a perfectly ordinary place near Disney. We will try other options. Read less

We liked the proximity to Disney (we are annual pass holders) so will use this facility again. Read less
