This mid-level hotel is nothing fancy ... but it is quite close to DisneyWorld attractions. Come for the locations and the fun you'll have off-property - no need to waste a minute hanging around here!

Cheap hotel very well located, but have some issues that makes it not a 3 star level hotel. My linens were dirty and have holes. Also water pressure in the shower is insufficient making impossible to take a quick shower. As soon as I got this hotel through NYOP i read the reviews and they were bad. Not as other 3 star hoteles i stayed before. I taked to customer relations in priceline for a hotel change with no charge and they refused arguing the hotel met the characteristics of a 3 star. Well after spending there a week I can tell for sure the hotel isnt a 3 star. Priceline was not good on this one! ...

Needless to say, we would not stay here again. We booked 2 nights at a nonrefundable price and after the first night we booked a room for a different hotel and stayed there.

Not bad at all. I had a bad experience with this chain in Anaheim, CA so I was apprehensive to stay here but everything really went well. I was impressed

Overall this was a good choice, we got there from the airport by taking the local bus, it was a bit of a trek but only $2 so a lot cheaper than a taxi! The rooms were good, it's a big hotel. They had everything you need. The park information desk were helpful, we got a 2 day entrance for universal for the price of 1 day (if a little bit pushy, they must work on commission). Beware in the holidays of big tour groups of children, they aren't terribly well supervised by their program leaders and they pushed in line and were generally showed no respect or regard for other hotel guests. Hardly the hotels fault though. ...

The reviews scared me, but we decided to give this hotel a chance anyhow. I'm glad we did, because the things we didn't like were very minor compared to the attributes we did appreciate. We were further away from WDW than we would have liked, but it was still very manageable. While I would say that there is no way this place should be listed as a 3-star hotel, it is a strong 2 1/2 star hotel. Most importantly, IT IS CLEAN, and there is an elevator. Some folks reported that the highway noise was a problem, but our room faced the highway, and we did not hear it when our room's door was closed. ...

I would stay here again. The only con is the water pressure in the sink is too weak. Also... I called three times prior to my arrival to confirm that the two rooms I booked would be next to one another or at least on the same floor. I was told it was noted in my reservation and they will do their best to book the room next to one another. When I arrived to the hotel it was impossible to book the rooms on the same floor because they reserved the wrong rooms for me. I reserved 2 rooms with 2 double beds but on their record they showed 1 room with 2 double beds and 1 room with a king size bed. They quickly made sure I would have 2 rooms with 2 double beds but unfortunately could not place us on the same floor. It wasn't a big deal for our group...however... if it was a family with children this would be an issue. On the up side...the hotel was very clean. ...

We were close enough to visit other friends who also came down and was in other hotels in walking distances. Also we were very close to the Disney Resort,and resturants too.
