Accommodations Review:

The staff at this hotel was excellent. We stayed on our honeymoon and they went out of their way to accommodate us. The rooms were always clean. It has three pools, one which is heated and even an outdoor hot-tub (which we used every night after a long day at Disney).

Restaurant/Lounge Review:

This had a lounge that served subs and wings at night and also had drink specials every evening from 6-8. The restaurant had buffets for breakfast and for supper in the evening. Good food for the hotel.  Priced at $6.99 for breakfast and I believe $8.99 for the evening buffet.

Amenities / Facilities / Activities Available:

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

Pool Description/Comments:

Three Pools. One heated and two not heated. Very clean and nice sized. Had few lounge chairs but enough for our visit. (who lounges around the pool when Disney is down the street?)

Other Comments:

If you need to stay off Disney property this place was great. They do have a guest services place in the lobby that can assist with tickets and transportation to anything. They were always smiling and very helpful.
