This hotel is the only place I’ve stayed in the Orlando area where I have no criticisms to make! Their heated pool is actually heated! Plus there are two hot tubs and they are all open until 11 PM that is after you get home from the parks and perfect for me. it is very conveniently located Just off exit 68 of I 4 And a 10 minute drive from Epcot even closer to Disney Springs there are many non-Disney Restaurants close by Including an on-site Applebees there is no breakfast included but you do have a refrigerator and microwave Wi-FiCable TV in -room safe some rooms are interior but mine had the door on an outside balcony it is a little older Construction But Well-maintained Quietand clean Friendly staff I got a very reasonable rateI had no problems with my stay and would happily return again
The hotel staff and facility was awesome. Doris was very helpful in sending an engineer to help navigate the Xbox. The engineer was very sweet and patient with the grandkids. The waitresses in the Apple bees were phenomenal. I can’t say enough about the service.
