North to Osceola Parkway, West into parks.  Complimentary shuttle to the parks, but didn't use it, given the fact that the bus went to all 4 parks. The car was very convenient.

Accommodations Review:

Standard 2 story Motel arrangement, the "suite" was a combination of a normal room with two double beds and a Living Room/Kitchen combination with a Murphy bed. This made for nice sleeping with the two young girls in the living room and us in the bedroom. The rooms were clean and seemed well maintained. Nothing spectacular, just good.

Rate/Night (for your stay):

Part of a package deal (Southwest Airlines)

# of Restaurants/Lounges:

2

Restaurant/Lounge Review:

Kids eat free, made for VERY reasonable meals. The suite came with free breakfast for two adults, this was nice. The breakfast was fine: fresh fruit, grits, eggs, bacon, biscuits, pancakes. The girls really like it. There is also an informal store and grill area where pizza, hamburgers and again free kids meals were available. The dinners were not as well done as the breakfast.

Amenities / Facilities / Activities Available:

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

Pool Description/Comments:

Two pools, two hot tubs, and a kiddie pool. Standard, no themeing, fairly uncrowded for us.

Other Comments:

This was very convenient to WDW, since you don't have to travel 192 at all to get to and from the parks. That made things pretty easy, since 192 is under construction and was pretty slow. It took us a while to figure out that "Turnpike" equaled "Oceola Parkway", , but once we figured that out we were able to get to the parks very easily. The breakfast was great, but other meals we'd probably skip if we went again.  My wife's comments: "I'd stay somewhere with a little better food for lunch and dinner." Other than that, very cheap, serviceable, clean comfortable place to stay.
