“Always stay here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2012

They have great staff and great location. We were placed in lower rooms and kind of smelled mold so we asked to be moved and they moved us right away. They apologized because they had a flood a couple weeks later and thought the rooms were find. Turns out they decided to completely redue those rooms that smelled a couple months later. They really care and listen is you have issues.

Great location on the boardwalk, an easy walk to Epcot. Standard room was sufficient for our family of four including two teen-age boys. The resort is huge and it took some time to find our way around. The "quiet pool" was exactly that, very very tranquil and relaxed, as opposed to the activity pool with everything going on. Lots to do on the boardwalk outside the resort, from bars & clubs to restaurants; no need to go offsite. Most everything on property is very very expensive. Only one bad service experience - the bartender at the Belle Vue lounge was downright rude - we only went there once and certainly would not return to that bar for a drink. Otherwise an excellent resort.

This was our ninth visit to Disney World. We have stayed at a different resort almost every time. We chose Boardwalk because of its location close to Epcot and Hollywood Studios, as well as the many dining and entertainment choices available on the boardwalk itself, which is designed on the water like an old turn-of-the-century seaside boardwalk. All in all, I would give the hotel a very high rating. The rooms are very comfortable. Ours must have been an upgrade, as we paid the standard rate and ended up with a small porch/patio on the first floor looking out into a beautiful courtyard, just steps away from the very relaxing and lovely quiet pool. It was also extremely quiet, I rarely heard another soul though there were guests in our hall.
I would have given the resort a 5 except for the fact that the housekeeping services here were not on a par that I have experienced at other Disney resorts. There was a significant layer of dust under the bathroom vanity when we arrived. One of the two sink faucets didn't work, and the bathtub faucet was very difficult to turn off. Also, the grout and caulking could have used a bit more detail work. Also, we have been accustomed at Disney for the housekeepers to do "special" things like cutely rearranging the stuffed animals, or leaving towel animals every day. Here, the beds were barely neat, and no extras. So, not terrible, just not as nice as we are used to at Disney.

Otherwise, the staff at the hotel are incredibly friendly and helpful, and the hotel is beautiful. We found the main pool to be a bit too hectic. It felt very crowded. The Disney pools are typically heavily used, but something about the design of this pool area made it feel particularly packed. We retreated to the quiet pool, which we loved, but it was closed for maintenance for a few days in the middle of our stay. I think the main pool would have been more attractive for us if our kids were a good bit younger (mine our 15 and 12).

We really enjoyed the Boardwalk location. The kids loved going out to the boardwalk area in the evenings. There are a small group of solo performers that come out every evening (a magician, plate spinner, and others) that are great fun. Also, there are carnival games, surrey bicycle carts to rent, funnel cake and hot dog stands, as well as a sweets/ice cream shop and various other restaurants (high end and inexpensive, for Disney) and two bars. Also, it took us about 5 minutes walking to be in the gates of Epcot (you come in right by the Great Britain fish and chips stand, and a short walk from France and the pastries....bonus!!) We also walked to Fantasia miniature golf in about 10 minutes. There is a boat that takes you to Hollywood studios, though you could probably get there faster walking as it stops at Yacht/Beach Club and Swan/Dolphin before going to HS.

This was our second trip to the Boardwalk area. We previously stayed at Yacht Club. The Yacht Club pool is far superior (always crowded, but you can find areas that don't feel so crowded) and I liked the design of Yacht Club better, but it is a good walk around to all the boardwalk attractions, and the cheaper dining options at Yacht and Beach are more limited in my view.

I would definitely stay here again. My kids love the area, and as long as I was near the quiet pool, I would be happy!

Room Tip: Ask to be on the courtyard near the quiet pool, preferably on the first floor.

This place was a great Disney resort to stay at. We stayed in a standard room and it had sufficient room for our family of five, with two queen beds and a single-sized pull-out bed. The room was clean, the staff members were friendly and helpful and the ferry service to Epcot, Hollywood Studios and surrounding resorts was wonderful. The pool was great fun. We also took advantage of the tennis court, which is a short walk behind the parking lot. You can get tennis racquets, etc. from the Community Hall, which is a nice-sized game room with a big tv, dvds, free video games, air hockey, etc.

Room Tip: Ask for a room close to the elevator . Our room was a bit far. And after a day in the Parks, who wan...

Originally my 11 y.o. son and I had booked a room at the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel for the Memorial Day weekend. However, upon checking in and observing the condition of The Dolphin Hotel, I immediately called Disney's Boardwalk Inn (which is just a 5 minute walk from the Dolphin) to see if they had availability, and thank goodness they did.

The Boardwalk Inn is now our favorite Disney hotel. This was our first visit to this beautiful resort. We have stayed numerous times at each of the moderate resorts, as well as the Grand Floridian, Polynesian, Yacht Club, and Beach Club deluxe resorts and have enjoyed them all; however the Boardwalk's location, quaintness, theming, cleanliness, recreational offerings, attention to detail, and superior customer service gets our vote as #1 Disney resort.
