I always review trip advisor for hotel information and was not disappointed with previous good reports. Stayed here for 10 nights in June 2011.
This hotel is situated in a quiet end of "I" Drive, however the "I" Trolley bus stops right outside the door (Stop No. 39 I think?), so guests without their own car can get around very easily.
The hotel is quiet and peaceful but ideally situated to get ANYWHERE! "I"4 is close to the hotel, so you can get to either Daytona or Tampa in about an hour. Similarly it is very close to Seaworld and Aquatica.
We timed ourselves from doorstep to Magic Kingdom and it took just 12 minutes!
We didnt eat in the hotel, preferring Sizzlers breakfasts to anything else in the world!
Our room (222) was clean, comfortable with a huge super kingsize bed. The air con was very efficient; temp during day was 99F+ and only dropped to 78F at night so it was very much needed.
Other travellers have mentioned the remoteness of the carpark - dont worry! Yes it's at the back of the hotel but it's well lit and if you dont take care of your own personal welfare who will; Like anywhere (not just USA but the rest of the world) just be sensible and look around you!
Staff were keen and attentive - although the (chubby) gardener/janitor with the small goatee beard did 'feign deafness' by gesturing to his ears, when I asked if a car could be moved forward slightly, to allow me to leave the hotel during an horiffic thrunder storm - what a W"?!*+er!
How did I know he was feigning deafness? I shouted over to him later in the week, that he'd dropped a $20 note, he turned round to look for it but it wasnt there! I'd given it to the room maid who did a brilliant job.
Sadly he let the side down - everyone else were delightful and very eager to please..
The pool area is clean, well maintained and has plenty of beds and chairs. Fresh towels are regularly restocked. There are 4 cabanas with beds for when the sun gets too hot. The spa is wonderful.
We stayed here for 10 nights and cannot compliment the hotel enough, we didnt eat or drink in the hotel, we simply used it as an upmarket bed factory. This place knocks spots off anything else in its price bracket. Quality and comfort all the way.
You wont be disappointed!¬
