First time staying off the disney resorts. Brand new hotel, 10 floors, rooms were nice, and spacious. We had the double with pull out couch. Even the pull out couch was comfortable to sleep on.
Breakfast in the morning cant be beat, food was good for the most part and was a good way to start the day. Didnt try the hotel restaurant, as there were numerous restaurant options nearby (99, applebees, smokey bones,olive garden)
A walmart is nearby, which allowed us to grab food/snacks/ milk etc etc to stock up in the room for the kids as there are a mini fridge and microwave in the room.
All of the disney attractions are nearby about 10-15 min drive. however, you will need to park at disney for 14 bucks and there are long lines in the morning. The hotel does have a shuttle (3rd party), in which for 4 bucks per person,rountrip, will pick u up and drop u off at the hotel. The only downside, are the times. For us, the earliest time for holllywood studios was at 840. ( got there by 9). We'd prefer to get there earlier. The other downside, if your using a park hopper, they will only pick you up at the same spot they dropped you off at arranged times, again earlier the i hoped (640 and 840 was available).
If going to disney, and the prices were reasonable, i would prefer to stay at disney, as it was easier to get around, via monorail and get a quick start in the morning, or take a quick break in the day with kids.
however, i definitley would not hestate to stay at this hotel again.
