This was my first trip to Disney World without staying on Disney property and I don't think I could have asked for a more comfortable and pleasant stay for a family of four. We stayed here for seven nights and the location to all the Disney parks is perfect - just a mile up the road from Downtown Disney and the same road will take you to all the parks in minutes. You can take the complimentary shuttle bus from the hotel, which we did one day and it was fine, I prefer not to have to worry about the bus schedule. There are a variety of restaurants and stores right accross the street. This is an excellent location!
We reserved a two bedroom king suite, which was more than comfortable for two adults and two kids (11 & 14) for the same price we would have paid for a moderate room on Disney property. The boys had their own room with their own beds, bathroom and TV and we had our own room, bathroom and TV. The living room was comfortable with a sofa bed (if you need it), lounge chair, TV with DVD and VCR player. The fully equiped kitchen and dining area were perfect for our needs and there is free internet service in each room. The room was very clean and housekeeping came in every day to make beds and replace towels and soaps. They come in every third day for a full cleaning. The one thing I would recommend is trying to get a first floor room if you have a lot of luggage because there are 3 levels and no elevators so you have to carry your luggage up yourself. We requested a first level pool view room, which was a great location for the kids, but if you prefer peace and quiet, stay away from the pool side of the hotel - it can get a bit busy at times. The hotel has an arcade, with computer, a laundry room, business center with computers, gym and a library. The pool was very nice with a toddler pool, full size pool and a jacuzzi with fresh towels always available. The staff was very friendly and accomodating to any of our needs.
The complimentary breakfast each morning was great, with a wide variety of breakfast foods and drinks for just about anyones taste. There is an evening reception with free food and drinks three nights a week. This benefit alone saved us a lot of money each day in meals and you are welcome to eat there or bring the food back to your room. I found the grounds to be very nice and relaxing with plenty of plants and places to sit an talk.
I was a bit nervous about what I was walking into after reading some of the reviews here, but for the money, I could not have asked for a nicer place to stay for this trip and would definitely stay here again and again.
