“Excellent, clean,comfortable and friendly hotel in a great location”
Reviewed 17 April 2012

The recepion staff are very friendly and informative - the best out of the 4 or so hotels we've stayed at in Orlando. Our room provided a very large kig siz bed with big TV and ample wardrobe and draw space. Also had adjoining room for our 14 year old son with double sofa bed, big TV, lazyboy recling chair, table+chairs. He was made up with having his own "bedsit" as his rom aslo contained a kitchenette with large fridge, dishwasher, hotplate, toaster, cupbaords, pots and pans etc. Bathroom had a good shower and bath. Everything was very clean and in good order.

We only used the pool once, but it was fine. The one time we mamanged to make it out of the parks for a reasonable time we made it for "Happy hour" in the dining area where each guest can get a coupld of drinks free (2 x draft bud lites - very nice !!).

The location of this hotel is in Palm parkway which is 10 minutes drive to downtime disney. Also by driving north on Parm parkway/Turkey lake road you can be in Seaworld in about 15 ms, universal about 20 mins. There are lots of eateries nearby - would recommend the Golden Coral which is on Vineland - about 5/10 mins away. Also a large Walmart on Turkey lake road is convienient (10 minutes drive).

Would highly recommend this hotel and want to book it again for next year.

Myself my friend and our 4 teenage children stayed here for 10 days during the Easter holidays.
We stayed on the 4th floor. The bedroom was light and airy and there was a separate living area with kitchenette and a large sofa bed and a large bathroom which had 2 doors this became a little annoying as you had to remember to lock both doors, in the end we kept the bedroom one locked and blocked it with a suitcase. The 2 double beds were the comfiest we had ever slept in, in a hotel. The rooms were cleaned every day and the beds changed every couple of days.

The breakfast was served everyday until 9.30 and was a hit with the kids something different every day.
Monday though Thursday at 5.30pm - 7.30pm you were able to have 2 complementary drinks (wine/beer adults soft drinks for kids) and some sort of snack, this was very enjoyable to have round the pool.
Now the pool, its not the biggest or the smallest you might see, but it is adequate. There are plenty of sun loungers around to soak up the Florida sun then a quick dunk in the pool to cool you off as well as a jacuzzi . The kids played endlessly in the pool with different balls and floats that people leave behind after their holiday.

We didn't hire a car on this occasion due to the location of the hotel, it is smack right in the middle between Disney and Universal.
The hotel provide a shuttle to Disney around 3 times a day which is free. But, they charge $10pp to go to Universal, the water parks and Sea world and only run once a day, there were 6 of us which would have made it very expensive, the local taxi cost around $20 return from Sea world and $30-35 for Universal which was great value and we were not restricted by time,top-tip, get the number of your taxi driver and use them for the duration of your holiday we did and he was always available when we text him a time to pick up or collect well done JOSEPH.
As I said the hotel was in a great location very safe to walk around in the evening there are plenty of restaurants inc TGI'S, Angus steakhouse, Pizza hut, Denny's etc a Pharmacist, supermarkets and gift shops in about 10min and in around 20 mins you can walk to Down Town Disney.

The hotel is perfect for families the staff are some of the friendliest I have ever met, nothing is too much trouble and will assist you at all times with regards to anything!

Also there is free wifi with the grounds so no hefty phone bills to come home too.

The only thing that niggled me was that there was no bar in the hotel or on site restaurant. Saying that I would certainly use this hotel again.

Well done guys this hotel certainly made our holiday :)














The location is superb right in-between the Disney Parks and Universal studios.

Room Tip: Try not to get a room next to the lifts as they are used frequently with people checking in and out...

This is a really great little hotel to use as a base for visting the surrounding attractions especially Disney as it offers a complimentary bus shuttle to Epcot where you can get transport to all the other parks.

Our room was really more of an apartment with a separate bedroom containing two huge beds and a TV. There is also a separate bathroom with WC and a large washroom. On entering the apartment there is a kitchen with a big fridge/freezer, microwave, hob, dishwasher, table and 4 chairs.. This leads onto a lounge area with sofa's and another big TV.

My one grievance is that there is no safe in the room to keep valubales. Instead there are some small safe boxes in reception but not enough for one per room and as the hotel was busy we consequently were unable to get one and had to carry my valuables around with us for the duration which was just as well as on one day we found our door had not been closed properly after it had been cleaned and anyone could have just walked in - luckily no one did.

This may have been speciific to our room only but the air conditoning was incredibly nosiy when it kicked in and although we could have turned it off the room would have been uncomfortably hot at night.

Breakfasts are good and change on a daily basis with 3 cooked items each morning supplemented by toast, bagels, doughnuts, cereals, fruit and yoghurt.

Another little perk was the early evening Monday hotdog and alcoholic drink ( beer or wine) which were compliments of the manager to all guests. Really nice to come back to after a day at the theme parks.

As has already been mentioned the pool is small and it's not really the sort of hotel I would stay in purely to sit by the pool all day.

Loads of nearby diners & restaurants that are only a 5-10 minute walk away - all with good menus.

The decor was a little dated but most importantly it was clean hotel.

I would definately stay at this hotel again to use as a base for

I'm currently staying at the hotel and so far everything from staff services to room and general hotel cleanliness has lived up to expectation. The only downside to this hotel is the breakfast. It needs more variety rather than omlettes and scrambled eggs every other day. For $3.99 we had a buffet breakfast just around the corner which had a huge variety and every mouthful was a joy to the palate. Other than this,a good hotel for families and couples alike.

we have jusy returned from an 11 night stay at this hotel and had a very pleasent stay here.

Firstly, the location is great for all the parks, local amenities and shops. You can walk to the shops by cutting though a few buildings across the road which is really handy. We didn't go to all the parks but for the ones we did visit we hired a car or got a cab and it was literally 5/10 minutes to each park and about ten dollars in a cab.
The hotel itself was clean and tidy and the rooms were great. our room had two double beds, a living room with a second tv (which was great when i kept waking up in the middle of the night because of jet lag) And a really ample kitchen with everything you need to do a bit of self catering should you wish to.....we didn't because there's probably a different resturant in the area to have breakfast, lunch and dinner a different place every day of the year!

the pool area was ok. The pool was quite small and often over crowded which meant we never seemed to get a chance for a proper swim, but that's ok, we did appreciate that it was very much a child friendly hotel but it was a shame that there was no pool side bar for drinks and snacks as we enjoy that kind of thing on a holiday and it's nice to sit by the pool with a drink in the early evenings when it's still warm. Having said this, the pool was a lovely temperature and always spotlessly clean.
The breakfasts were good, and for a complimentry meal at the start of the day you can't really complain. It'd have been pefect if they'd had more options of 'cold' choices like more cereals or fruits but what they did offer in the way of omelettes and bacon etc was ample.

The staff in the hotel were great and a particular mention goes to Milton on reception and Joey who does the bar in the evenings. both of these guys were so helpful and friendly, advising us on the local area and where to eat. it's nice that they remember names/faces in such a busy hotel and place.

Someone on here has said there is only one lift. nope, there is two. the first one is near reception and the other is at the end of the corridor - the later lift always arrives much quicker than the former!

one quick tip for the evenings if you fancy a night out - go to Pointe Orlando (between 10 and 20 dollars in a taxi or about a half hour walk) It's a bit more lively and 'happening' with some bars and what not. we went there twice and enjoyed drinks and dinner in a few places and had a great time.
another few tips for dinner - Chillis, Don Pablos, Perkins, Charlie's steak house (get your name on the wall if you can manage the 50 ounce steak but the prices might make you squirm!).

we also swam with dolphins during our stay and i recommend this to everyone - absolutely incredible, but i'll leave that for another review.

This was my first time in the USA and thanks to all the friendly staff not only in the hotel but the local area I now have the bug to visit more of the USA and can't wait to get cracking on our next trip to the states. Absolutely fantastic country and i now see why everyone raves about you guys!

Thanks again...
