My boyfriend and I drove up to the Baymont Inn and Suites Celebration from the first part of our Florida vacation in Fort Lauderdale. We were assured that there would be free shuttle service from the hotel daily to all of the Disney Parks so we drove 45 minutes out of the way to return our rental car. We took a shuttle to the hotel ($40/person-round trip-which we purchased b/c we would need to take the shuttle back to the airport a few days later) Upon arrival, there was a long line to check in with only one person working. It was at this point that I noticed the "shuttle schedule" There was one shuttle very early in the morning to the parks and one returning mid-evening before the parks even closed. After waiting 25 minutes to check in, I explained that we were told there would be continuing shuttles all day, they apologized but there was nothing they could do. We were upset but did not want to let it ruin our trip so we asked them to call us a cab. BIG MISTAKE. An unmarked car with no meter picked us up and informed us it would be $22 to take us 2 miles up the road and $27 to the parks slightly further. DO NOT let the hotel call you a cab, call City cab on your own. They are marked vehicles with meters which we took back to the hotel and it came to $7!!!! We were told by others that the hotel works with these other "cab companies" and gets a cut of the outrageous price.
The breakfast was a joke. It was all cold food-cereal, etc. No fresh fruit. There were bagels and waffles out that you walked over to another table with a pile of mismatched toasters that you waited in line to toast your breakfast. Not impressed.
The only reason I am giving this hotel a 3 is because of how clean it was and how pretty the lobby and bathrooms in the rooms were. I would not recommend this property though.
