We've stayed here several times, and it's always a great experience. The step back to the past is a delight. The staff is helpful and recommends places to have a meal. Once they were booked up, and recommended another place for us.

This was a fun place to stay. A very distinct Disney Cars theme painted murals all throughout. Old cars and cool Route 66 gifts and souvenirs. Parking is designed for smaller vehicles, Don't miss the neon at night!

Can't remember, but I know the price range was $69-129. I think we paid less than $100. Well worth it-too cute.
