This hotel is generally good. Exceptionally comfortable beds and pillows. Clean and well maintained although some of the furniture is a little tired. Fridge, microwave and WiFi in the rooms for free. Ice machines are situated in the lift area on each floor. Excellent proximity to Disney World, Sea World and the Premium Outlet Mall. BUT ... ask for a room overlooking the car park unless you want to be awake all night listening to traffic thunder past your bedroom window. It is relentless, 24/7, and VERY LOUD. Although, if you use the in-room air conditioning unit (which luckily, being April, we didn't require) you won't hear anything over the noise that that makes.

The pools also suffer from the road noise but this can be drowned out by listening to an ipod. Why the pools were constructed on Interstate side of the hotel is anyone's guess. The side which fronts Palm Parkway is much quieter and would have been a far better location for them, instead of which, the parking area is situated here.

Buffet breakfast was fairly standard fare, nothing great but not bad, although at $9.99 plus tax and tip, you are far better off jumping in your car and heading round the corner to the Sizzler which is half the price.

Room Tip: Only book if you can guarantee a room overlooking the front entrance (car park) or if you are completely deaf.

I spent 7 nights in March. The room was completely refurbished with all new furniture,mini kitchen with a mini fridge, microwave and coffee maker.The room and bathroom were clean and comfortable.The Maid service was very good. This has to be the best deal in the Disney area.

Room Tip: I had a pool level room which is perfect for a family with kids.

The hotel has clean spacious rooms, nice updated bathrooms and comfortable beds. They had a fridge and microwave in the room which was a nice surprise. The location is great due to its proximity to Disney World. It is right across from Premium Outlet Malls so is a shopper's dream. They also had on site laundry which made it very easy to travel with a small kid. Pool is outdoor and not heated. The only complaint was absence of gym or fitness center and also the breakfast was not included. Breakfast was available for a price though and it was good breakfast.

Room Tip: Rooms on the back of the hotel facing the highway enjoy a very nice view facing the pool and/or the lake. However, they are noisier because of facing the highway so if you are a light sleeper, request a room in the front which does not face the highway.

We stayed here for 2 weeks, myself, wife, mum and dad and 2 children. The hotel is in a fantastic location for all the parks and attractions. The hotel was very clean and comfortable and the staff friendly. This was part of a package arranged by thomas cook who were fantastic throughout. We would highly recommend this hotel.

I stayed at the hotel for 2 weeks, we arrived on Thanksgiving and the girl on check-in was happy to advise us about black friday sales. Slight downpoint the guy on check-in told us that we would have to eat in the hotel that night as it was a holiday and we wouldn't get food anywhere else. We decided to chance it and took a 5 minute walk to hooters and got some food a lot cheaper than the hotel. The rooms were cleaned on a daily basis and we had no prolems with anything going missing we regularly forgot to put our laptop & Ipad in the safe and they were fine in the room. Guestservices could help themselves by finding out about the local 'Lynx' bus service as their is a stop directly opposite the hotel but they just wanted you to book taxis or car hire with them. The courtesy bus service to the parks is good but we would get there about 15mins before they were due to leave as they weren't very frequent and got really busy. The lynx bus from outside goes straight to Magic Kingdom & Downtown disney.
You can walk to Downtown disney in bout 20-30mins from the hotel and its all flat so a nice walk. Theres a few eating and drinking areas close to the hotel The Kobe japanese is really good aswell as Black Angus steak house.
We would stay at this hotel again in the future.

Room Tip: avoid the I4 side ask for a room overlooking the carpark as they are away from the Highway and are quieter.
