Recent guest reviews

Staff was excellent, every person that helped me directly went above and beyond to help. However the facility overall is lacking in almost every way. It’s well out of disrepair and date. Room smelled like mildew, sink didn’t work properly, shower temp was hard to control, fridge didn’t work, no ice machine in building (closest one building over didn’t work either). This place was probably decent 25-30 years ago but it’s well past it’s prime. It is close to most restaurants and you can walk to Walgreens for most needs but that’s the only plus. For crashing a night or two it’s not bad, but don’t plan to be comfortable spending a lot of time in the room. I definitely wouldn’t recommend this place for families.

We switched hotels. This is a motel that was very disappointing. Very noisy. Bed was very uncomfortable. Bathroom was small and dingy. The whole room was very outdated and smelled awful. The gentleman at check in made me very uncomfortable. We only stayed one night out of 3. I guess I didn't read enough reviews.

very bad wifi , location great near to all required facilities

Rug needs cleaning and pillows are terrible the maid did not clean the bathroom.

First time In Florida I loved it & the hotel was decent

Close to WDW and a variety of places to eat. Room had roaches and tiny ants. Could not close bathroom door. Room had a musty odor. Overall not a happy experience.

Affordable hotel close to the parks. They have shuttles that run to the parks. People at checkout seemed to have an attitude but there was one girl who worked at the desk with all the Disney info who was an absolute sweetheart. I wish I remembered her name. Breakfast was okay. Personally think you’re better off going to Denny’s or iHop down the road instead though. This was my first trip to Florida. I’d probably stay here again for the convenience of it being close to Disney, but to anyone looking to stay here, make sure you have a car because getting anywhere by other means is difficult. A LOT of gift shops nearby including one just across the street.

Good hotel close to alot of restaurants stores free shuttle to Disney

Overall everything was great, but the room had a persistent mildew-y smell that was a little off-putting

Dirty carpet and there was no remote in the room for the TV. Only stayed here to sleep.

Close to disney and close to restaurants and other stuff.👍

Convenient, reasonable price. Older hotel with renovations taking place. Much of the Lobby amenities were closed during the day. Shuttle service was POOR. Do not depend on the theme park shuttle. Only three departure times. Last one was before 11am. Return shuttles were useless. Extremely limited

Check in was quick and simple. Room was exactly what I needed it for, shower and sleep. Beds were a tad bit small for my fiancé and I but we managed well. Would stay again.

Close to the parks and attractions breakfast buffet helps save money for families
