Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Iris I wrote a review Nov 2022
Room seemed clean when we got there everything was great loved the pool and the amenities. There wasn’t an issue until the night came and the roaches came out. A lot of them 1st one I killed figured wasn’t a big deal then I saw about 6 in the bathroom later that night more started coming out and bigger only reason we didn’t leave was because the kids were already sleeping and we only planned on staying there one night but it was absolutely disgusting seeing so many roaches everywhere !

Hotel's Favourite
Nice, newer, Clean hotel. Pet friendly. The staff was friendly. I love the Dove bath products that they have in the room. The breakfast was standard but good. We went down too late one morning and the staff still went and got my son a muffin. I thought that was super nice because they'd already shut everything down. And how do you tell a cute little 3 year old no.

Dear 648 karaw, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us and we're happy that all went well. We know that family vacations are super special and we love to show some extra care and loving with even the smallest of guests--it was our pleasure to help! While it is true that we are service animal friendly, we do not accept regular pets. I just wanted to take a moment to make that distinction to avoid any future confusion. Thank you for choosing our hotel!

The staff was amazing and very helpful. The rooms were ok, the amenities great, but the floor and beds were too old and used, would be great if they were refurbished or changed. It was possible to see also some dirt near the beadskirt.

Eh, we were looking for an affordable place to stay when visiting Disney and I can definitely say that this is an affordable hotel. Parking is included and there's free breakfast, so you definitely save money there, but in hindsight, I would have stayed somewhere else. It's in the middle of a renovation and one of the two elevators did not work, so that made moving around with bags tricky at busy hours. The rooms were clean and spacious, which was very nice, but the pillows were very uncomfortable and the water pressure in the bathroom was very poor. The aforementioned free breakfast was also pitiful and half of the items were inedible, requiring us to snack once we got to Disney, which was a shame. We wouldn't stay here again.

Overall nice hotel well positioned between disney and universal. Breakfast was good and well stocked. Room was nice. Some staining on wall above A/C and bathroom was small for 4 people and little bit of mildew/rust but nothing super gross.

Dear annafJ4639PH, We strive to make guests happy, safe and comfortable. Offering services such as the texting just gives us little more security in knowing our guests are satisfied, and it gives the guests one more option for contacting the hotel if the need arises. We aim to make check in a breeze so you can start the fun a little early, and breakfast...well, who can resist make your own waffles and a variety of hot items? Come see us soon--we are ready to have you back!

Our hotel room was very clean and the sheets were amazing! The comforters are super plush and so were the pillows. There was plenty of parking. The bar staff were great and so is the food. Book this hotel if you are in the area!

We made this booking spur of the moment just for one night, before we transferred to Hard Rock for our planned five night stay. It’s definitely not an up scale hotel, but there are lots of amenities that make it worthwhile. As a couple without kids, we only went to the pools, but there was mini putt and some other activities. We were able to get a late check out (so appreciated, as we arrived after midnight) and made use of the pools and hot tubs. There are a couple hotels and a timeshare that seem to share the pools, but it wasn’t at all crowded, and there were a few bars and restaurants to choose from. The room was nice and clean, nothing fancy, but again you aren’t coming to this area of Florida to spend a lot of time in the room. The “free” breakfast was terrible… soggy everything, and it was almost all cold. The waffles were the highlight, but go early as they only have one station. But the poolside bar more than made up for it ($55 for lunch and drinks). Overall I wouldn’t do this hotel if it was my first time in Disney/universal, but as far as the surrounding hotels go it’s pretty good. Definitely would come back.
