My boyfriend and I stayed here from 11-25 November 2013. Checking in was simple and quick. Our room was 135 right next to the pool on the ground floor. As soon as we walked in we walked in we were greeted with some nice cool air so the aircon was turned on as it was a very warm that particular day. 2 big spacious double beds, very comfy too. Bathroom was perfect size, not too big or small and clean! In the room there is also a tv, an old tv but worked perfectly. And there was a fridge & as i mentioned before the room has an aircon. Again worked nicely.
There's FREE shuttle bus that takes you and from Disney and also Universal. The bus picks you up from outside the lobby. You get given a piece of paper to tell you the times and where to catch the bus so i don't know why some people complained about not knowing where to catch it! The drivers expect a tip but only a dollar per person. The other parks, Seaworld and Aquatica you can catch the I-Ride to, which only costs $2! They're pretty regular and stops right outside the park.
The location of the hotel was perfect, close to EVERYTHING! There was always something to do. Almost too many! Yes there is a motorway behind the hotel but i couldn't hear a thing. And i'm a very light sleeper!
Breakfast was coffee, orange juice and mini muffins. Ok, its not much but there is plenty of cafes and restaurants nearby. And cheap too! If not, there's also shops to buy bits from.
The staff i had no trouble with..but i have to admit we were never really there to see them. Room was cleaned everyday if we wanted, if not we just left the 'do not disturb' sign outside. Again, tip is $1 per person.
So in all...this hotel was perfect for us. It might not be a glamorous hotel but why would you want that when you're out all day everyday! Hope who ever reads this enjoys their stay as much as we did! :)
