First off, if you want a 5 star resort, go to the Peabody or Gaylord Palms. If you want clean, affordable, convenient accomodations this is it!! Definite three star plus hotel.This place is located at mile marker 12 on RT 192, just about 5 miles from the Disney entrance. Also, right around the corner from RT 535 which gives you a direct route (about 5 miles) to downtown Disney also.
Word of advice, if you book this thru ANOTHER website, be sure to call the hotel directly to confirm. Our reservations were listed under a wholesaler, so I had to call the website customer service. They called the hotel directly then called me back within one hour to re-confirm my reservation. I then re-called the hotel and "Mary" told me all was confirmed.
We rented the executive suite with king bed. Bed was fine. Pillows were thin but I used three so no big deal. Had a full kitchen. Took advantage of the continental breakfast pastries and drove to the nearest Dunkin Donuts for our morning coffee. This is not a knock on the breakfast offered, I'm just partial to DD coffee. Cont breakfast was standard juice, bagels, pastry, make your own waffles, cereal, and egg breakfast sandwiches made to order for an extra $2.25.
We had a room at the back of building #8 with a view of the lake. Definitely ask for rooms in the back......they are much quieter.
Also, if you dont like to walk to the pool or breakfast, ask for a room in buildings #1 thru 4. These are closest to the pool etc.
Your cc will be charged IN FULL at checkin, so make sure you review the quoted rate. Be advised that they add on a $6.50 a day resort fee........and its non-negotiable. Basically covers the breakfast cost and in-room safe rental. I really didnt care since I still got a good deal even with this added in.
Daily maid service was fine. She even washed our dishes!!
I would definitely stay here again.
