Location:

On SR 192, 2 1/2 miles West of I-4.

Ease of WDW Park Access:

Very good w/ rental car - travel time from WDW to hotel was less than 15 minutes (after getting to car!)   I do not know if they provided a shuttle, sorry :(

Address:

7300 Irlo Bronson Memorial Highway

Phone Number:

(407) 396-7300

Facility Type:

Motel

Accommodation Used:

Standard Room

Accommodations Review:

Standard Holiday Inn type room in regards to size and decor. Couple of really nice features: 1. the sink area had doors to close it off from the beds - I love this feature, it means the kids can sleep while I'm getting ready. 2. Small fridge and microwave in room. The maid service wasn't the best - beds made and fresh towels - that was pretty much it (the trash wasn't emptied daily). We did request extra pillows and they were delivered promptly.

Rate/Night (for your stay):

$50 per night w/3 night minimum (plus tax)

# of Restaurants/Lounges:

2 plus a Coffee Shop

Restaurant/Lounge Review:

We didn't spend much time in the main lobby - for one major reason. They have a seafood buffet nightly and well... the whole place smelled.

Activities/Facilities Available:

Pool, Hot-Tub

Pool Description/Comments:

Very good pool - actually there were 3 pools. The pool closes to our building (5) was excellent. The pool was Mickey shaped and one of the ears was the deep end - with a depth of 7 or 8 ft. The other ear was the shallow end - approximately 2 - 3 ft. My kids really loved this pool. The hot tub was in the same area and it was your nice, basic hot tub.

Amenities Provided:

Hairdryer, Towels/Supplies (and at pool), Laundry ($1.75 for washer $1.50 for dryer), In-Room Safe, Fridge and Microwave in room, Cable TV, Non-Smoking Rooms, Handicapped Accessible Rooms, Non-Smoking Rooms Available, Airport Shuttle Available (for fee)..

Other Comments:

We split our time between on-site and off-site this trip to maximize our vacation dollars. I felt this was a bargain. My kids (14 and 8) loved the pool and I loved the hot tub - I could see the kids in the pool and the laundry room from it - perfect :) I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. In all the only down side was the fishy smell in the lobby.
