Pool area large and always plenty of beds.My teen boys loved the gym and especially loved the gym showers. The cleaning throughout you couldnt fault.

The room extremely far from parking garage and elevator. Good thing we brought a wagon with us. The room decor had a nice theme but that’s about it. The beds were very uncomfortable and the walls were super thin. I didn’t get any sleep because of the bed and I could hear the family word to word next door even at midnight of the night… this hotel… Read more

My only gripe is the inconsiderate guests who were overly loud in the passage and in their rooms. The walls are paper thin and each morning the person in the next room’s alarm would go off at 5.30am. I still managed to sleep enough. Read less

The hotel was nice. But it was not anything special. Personally I will never take my family again because we were virtually profiled by the clerk in the souvenir shop. I had gone into that shop every day buying items for the kids and spend upwards of seven maybe $800 on souvenirs for those kids this particular day I went in there this white lady followed me all over the store as I was picking up items she was just right there breathing on my neck and then when I finally got tired of it I turned around and asked her why was she following me and she said no I’m not following you I’m just getting my steps in. A white couple came in then another group of white kids came in and she continued to just follow me through the store. A lady asked for help but she kept standing behind me so I turned around and gave her the items and told her she could have them. I then brought back all the items I purchased and started buying the kids items from the stores at the them parks. I spoke with the manager about this and she said, I’m sorry let me give you a food voucher for tonight . As if you can buy my dignity with a food voucher. It was at that moment that I understood why they were only for black families in the entire hotel. How do I know because we made a point to just meet up at the pool or meet up and have food together. So that hotel is a no for me I’ll continue to go to Disney. They may be racist but it never shows not like the experience I had at Universal surf side. I would’ve left but why give them the satisfaction. When we ordered food through room service, our food always got lost, so we would have to go to the restaurant to get food. The 3 stars are for the African American staff that worked in the restaurant. The white people that were obviously in charge of the in hotel restaurant we’re rude and kept turning their nose up at black people. Read less
