Accommodations Review:

With the great price we were getting, I didn't know what to expect. When we arrived (9 PM) the staff was quite efficient and more than willing to give us directions to the Walmart (for groceries) and other requests. They also upgraded us to a king size bed without an extra charge. There are two floors at the hotel, all with outside entrances. We had a non-smoking room on the second floor in the first building closest to the lobby. The room was spacious for two people. There was also a pull-out couch that we left folded up and served as a place to put our luggage. The frig and microwave were in good working order. The little freezer was able to freeze two water bottles overnight. The safe was easy to figure out and we used it. My only complaint on the room, and it was a minor one, was that the floor to the tub was squishy. Almost like the fiberglass was wearing thin. But, after the initial shock of it, I was fine. The showers stayed hot, and that is usually my biggest complaint.

Rate/Night (for your stay):

$55 (using Orlando Magicard)

# of Restaurants/Lounges:

3

Restaurant/Lounge Review:

As far as we could tell, there was a food court, a lounge, and a breakfast restaurant. We liked the food court, and got pizza there on our first night. Prices, we felt, were reasonable for the food. Room service and pool-side service was available, but we never used it

Amenities / Facilities / Activities Available:

Sundries Shop, Pool, Hot Tub, Playground, Tennis, Laundry, In-Room Safe, Babysitting/Kid Programs, Cooking Facilities, Pets Permitted, Room Service, Complimentary Airport Shuttle, Non-Smoking Rooms, Smoke Detectors, Fire Sprinklers.

Pool Description/Comments:

We liked the pool; we used it one night after Disney. It had very strong bromine or chlorine, so bring goggles. The temperature was refreshing after a long hot day.

Other Comments:

I would definitely stay here again. For the price and quality of facilities, you can't go wrong.
