“Ideal for Disney World”
Reviewed 25 January 2014

This downtown Disney hotel is ideal if you plan on taking the free shuttle to the parks everyday. It's clean, recently renovated and has free wifi everywhere. There is also a huge heated pool in the yard. We stayed for a week and chose to have breakfast included. There were enough breakfast choices for us to vary our meal everyday of the week. They had an omelette station, a mickey mouse waffle station, and a choice of cereals, pancakes, sausage or bacon, oatmeal and grits, fresh fruits and yogurt. There is also a very decent choice of pastries and breads. The supper at the same restaurant was hit or miss. The salmon was by far the tastiest and healthiest choice. The starfruit salad was drenched in balsamic vinaigrette and the pasta was just ok.

The rooms are big and the bathrooms were very clean. There is a microwave and a fridge in the room as well. If you are looking for a reasonably priced hotel and don't want the hassle of driving to Disney every morning to find a spot in their 12000-car parking lot, I strongly suggest this hotel. I would certainly book with this hotel again if I ever have to bring my family on a Disney trip.

We stayed for 4 nights.....Booked the room on line, and nothing said the hotel was so close to I-4. During check in I asked for a room not facing I-4, and was told that this would be an expensive upgrade.....The girl at the desk was rude and had every excuse why she could not accommodate us...She finally placed us in a room right in front of the elevators and next to the housekeeping door. Also, we were next to the service elevator which made a wooshing sound whenever it moved. We never got one good nights sleep for the entire stay....Also, they charge $10/day for parking, even though the lot was never more than half full. Also, the valet service takes all the good spots in front of the hotel. After this experience, we will never go back to this place, or stay at a HOLIDAY INN.

Room Tip: The hotel is no more than 500 feet from I-4, and unless you do not want to listen to big trucks goin...

We stayed here for four nights in November with our family and wow! We had a blast... You can't beat the location! It is right down the road from Downtown Disney! From the complimentary wi-fi in the rooms to the shuttle buses to the park you can't go wrong here.
With barley over 300 rooms - you get the nice hotel feel and the intimate feeling as well.
If your kids are anything like ours - then you will be spending a lot of time at their pool :)

Room Tip: When you check in ask for a room that faces the Disney parks so you can get a view of the fireworks...

Our family stayed for 6 nights in this nice, clean and just renovated hotel. We booked direct and got a good deal including breakfast. All the staff were nice and helpful. The breakfast has egg's corner, Mickey waffle and some other basic selections of bacon, fruits etc. It was delicious and our kids loved it. Most of the time, there was a manager (?) who walked around the tables and making sure everything was fine. The room was spacious with a balcony. Downtown Disney is only a 5-10 minutes walk away. The hotel also provides shuttle to all Disney parks. Taxi to Universal was only around Usd 30 and to Premium Outlet nearby around Usd 12. Lynx bus stop is also nearby. We will surely go back to this hotel if we come to Orlando again.

Room Tip: Avoid room facing highway

My boyfriend and I stayed here in January for 5 days when we came into town for the Disney Marathon. We wanted to stay off Disney property, but not so far away, we couldn't go to the parks. The hotel offered a shuttle every 30 mins to the Disney parks. It wasn't always "exactly" on time, but they came often enough that it was never a big deal. Our room was nice, no complaints. The staff was friendly and tried to be helpful. Sometimes, I feel like the answers to my questions were a little "wishy washy", but I appreciate the fact that they at least TRIED to help. There were a few stand out staff members, especially the guys in the front entrance helping with check in, parking Ect. Breakfast buffet was good, a bit pricey, but worth it. (especially if you like to eat a lot for breakfast)
Downtown disney was only a 5-10 minute walk, which was perfect for us since we spent a lot of time there
The pool area was nice. The water felt like bath water and was clean and well kept.
I would recommend this for friends, adults, or couples without kids (as it does not give the "Complete Disney Experience"), but it worked for us

Room Tip: Our room had a bad view, but it didn't matter

My criteria for this stay was to have something relatively good value and close to the parks with shuttle bus service as we're late risers and were visiting on Christmas eve and Christmas day and heard horror stories of the parks being so crowded they basically ran out of parking. While I don't think that happened, it was nice to take a bus right to the entrance although the cold temperatures on the one night made the wait a little chilly. Singing Christmas carols on Christmas eve during the bus ride back led by our cheery bus driver was memorable.

The room was nice and clean and functional and was a pretty great value considering the Christmas season is quite busy. My son was thrilled to get a little Christmas stocking with candy canes on Christmas - it's those small touches that really make a difference and show that the hotel cares about its guests!
