Accommodations Review:

Very nice for med/low end hotel. This is a "new" hotel in the sense that they completely gutted two or three older motels and completely refurbished. It looks like there are 3-4 room layouts. We loved ours! The living quarters was in an L shape which gave each bed area some privacy. We had a king and double bed. First floor rooms have a private patio area with landscaping. Each room has a mini fridge, TV with limited cable, and iron/ironing board (other things check marked below). My husband loved the workout room. It includes a stationary bike, treadmill, free weights, and two weight machines. The staff was very accommodating. This vacation was a surprise 6th birthday present for our daughter We started off the vacation by leaving our camera bag on the airport shuttle. The bell staff immediately started contact with the shuttle service and got our bag returned within an hour. Then, our daughter became ill the first night. Again, bell service helped out tremendously with getting us transportation to a doctor. They even checked on us the next few days to make sure we were doing OK. The housekeeping service was wonderful. Quick and quiet. Everyone there was very friendly, from the front desk to the gardeners. We will probably return here for our next trip. The only negative thing: hard to find an ice machine!

Rate/Night (for your stay):

?? We purchased a package, but I'm sure it was less than $100 a night.

1

Restaurant/Lounge Review:

Only ate there for our complimentary continental breakfast. It was OK. Definitely a continental: bagels, Danish, fruit, coffee and juice.

Amenities / Facilities / Activities Available:

Sundries Shop, Pool, Hot Tub, Health Club/Spa, Hair Dryer, Laundry, In-room Safe, Concierge, Room Service, Handicapped Accessible Rooms Available, Non-Smoking Rooms Available, Smoke Detectors, Fire Sprinklers.

Pool Description/Comments:

Two pools. Main pool and spa in center of facility on back side of restaurant. Smaller "quiet" pool was on Katella side near workout room. Plenty of towels and lounge chairs.

Other Comments:

We walked to the park instead of taking the shuttle. It is a fairly long walk (up Disney Drive through Downtown Disney), but very pretty. We never tried either shuttle option because we enjoyed the walk so much.
