This is the cleanest and friendliest place you can stay
Yes there is no breakfast as others had mentioned, but there is a food for less a mile down the street. There is a refrigerator in every room so buy cereal and some oatmeal and you are set. If you sit at a hotel to eat breakfast and get to the park past 9 am you will not get a fast pass for the popular Cars racer ride.
The beds are comfy and the room we had was called a kids room. This room has 2 queen beds and a bunk bed (top and bottom for the kids so you have your space after a long day)
The hotel is too far to walk with little ones, BUT the ART bus picks you up and drops you off and this hotel is the first stop so that makes it easy. For 3 people it cost around 10 dollars and believe me you don't want to fight Disney parking.
A big thing for us, was this is a motel like setting which is great. You don't have big long hallways for crazy kids to run around all over the place and it's like you go into your own private apartment. (And just because it's a motel setting does not mean ugly, the place is nicer than all the other hotels around)
My only slight issue was the construction noise and there is no sound barrier on the floor above you. The owner is hands on so make a quick call and he will fix it. We were awaken pretty early both days due to noise, but you are so tired you don't really care.
The taxes for the Disney area is pretty high and this place will charge a resort fee of 4 dollars per day. If you stay for 5 days and take the shuttle make sure you at least add 70 dollars plus another 100 in taxes. The good thing is you can buy your Disney tickets in the office and save 5 dollars off gate prices so you can just walk right in when the bus drops you off.
The shuttle stop running at 12 30 so you don't need to hurry. When you buy the pass at the office, you get an all day pass so you can come and go if you need a break.
If you have a chance and need some relaxation, go to Big Ranch BBQ. It sits in the most quiet remote part of the park and it was the best meal we had. You HAVE to make reservations and the price is 11 for kids and 26 for adults, but it's all you can eat and worth it.
