Accommodations Review:

This is an old hotel, and it looks (and smells) like it. The room is basic, the mattress was lumpy, and the music from the high school prom was loud (it stopped at midnight). Fortunately, we only needed the room to sleep. And since we stayed in the parks until closing, the loud music wasn't too much of an issue for us. Overall, though, I would highly recommend spending an additional amount each night to stay in one of the newer hotels in the area (Park Inn, Days Inn, even Candy Cane Inn). Several things count against this hotel in our opinion: no convenient airport shuttle service (you have to walk to one of the city bus stops to catch the Airport Bus), the smell of the cleaner when first walking into the room (kind of like bleach and something else mixed together), the age of the place, and no park shuttle running. Sure they are close, but it's still quite a walk especially when you've spent the entire day in the parks and don't really want to walk any further than you have to. If our daughter had been with us, we would have moved to another hotel.

Pool Description/Comments:

Very clean and well maintained. Found it interesting to see cleaning staff vacuuming the green turf "grass" around the pool.

Other Comments:

This hotel was kind of close to the entrance of the theme parks (only two traffic lights away), but there are closer hotels (Park Inn, Days Inn). If it's a basic room and you don't need anything else (shuttles, close to parks, pool), then this hotel could work for you. If you are used to the 'extras' you get, then find another place like Days Inn, Park Inn, or Candy Cane Inn.
