“Needs Improvement”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2012

I stayed during a family vacation to disney from the 25th-1st I am familiar with staybridge and there were some things that i didnt quite get use to.. it was my understanding that all staybridge suites accept pets this is a standard yes? and isnt laundry complimentary? and the fact that i was placed on the 3rd floor with 3 small children and no elevator was a little annoying at times even though i got quite the leg workout.

Room Tip: ask for 1st floor there is no Elevator and unlike the other Staybridge suites they do not allow pets

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2012

Family of five, stayed Feb 2012 for two weeks.

I booked this hotel after reading a few hundred reviews on trip adviser as well as other review sites. although the reviews were helfull there were certain things i wanted to know in more detail which none of the reviews highlighted, so i will cover them here. But first, here is our general overview;

Loved our stay. We found the room, a trio suite to be clean and spacious. The hotel location cannot be faulted, (Outside of the main Disney hotels) and we recieved great service.

We requested a ground floor room which we had, and upon arrival we requested an in room kettle which was delivered within five minutes, fab ! After the first week we experianced some minor issues with the
room, (A blocked WC and a loose towel rail) and again, these were fixed by the time we returned to our room later the same day.

The breakfast; Whilst i can understand some of the negative reviews, at the end of the day this was no five star banquet, (but neither did we expect one !) there was enough choice to keep us happy; toast, waffles, cakes, cereals, eggs, fruit, sausage, yoghurt, ham, porridge, juices, pop, hot drinks. If you want to laze around all morning relishing your surroundings and eating the finest food then book a five star hotel elswhere, otherwise if you are like us and want to have something to eat that will keep you going half the day b4 hitting the disney parks then this will do nicely. the free snacks and drinks three nights a week are OK, perhaps not worth rushing back for, but if you are coming back early to the hotel anyway then its nice. Typically you get hot dogs, wine or beer, plus soft drinks.

The pool and jacuzzi are clean and quite warm. They are open until about 23:00 hours every night.

There are three free computers with internet and one free in the kids room. Indeed, as some others have suggested, they can be slow but still usable.

LOCATION/TRANSPORT;
IT TOOK ME MUCH DELIBERATION CHOOSING WHETHER OR NOT TO HIRE A CAR OR TO TRUST THE BUSSES. I TOOK A CHANCE WITH THE BUSSES AND IT WORKED OUT JUST FINE. THE PACKAGE DEAL I GOT FROM ENGLAND INCLUDED A FREE CAR FOR TWO WEEKS BUT THE INSURANCE WAS ANOTHER £300, PLUS ON TOP OF THAT YOU HAVE $15 PER DAY DISNEY PARKING !!! THEN YOU HAVE PETROL, AND TIREDNESS ETC TO FACTOR IN SO FOR ME IT WAS A NO BRAINER. I GOT THE IMPRESSION FROM OTHER REVIEWS THAT THERE WERE REGULAR BUS TRANFERS TO THE DISNEY PARKS BUT NONE OF THEM GAVE A TIMETABLE SO HERE GOES;

MAGIC KINGDOM; PICK UP AT 07:50, 10:20, 11:40, 13;40. RETURN AT 7PM, 9.45, AND 11.35/12.50 WHEN THE PARK OPENS TIL LATE.

ANIMAL KINGDOM; 07:50 ONLY, RETURN 5.30PM ONLY.

EPCOT; 09:20 AND 11:40. RETURN 16;10 AND 22:00 HOURS.

HOLLYWOOD STUDIOS: 09:20 AND 13:40, RETURN AT 15:55 AND 19:20. (23:20 WHEN THE PARK IS OPEN TIL LATE).

ALL THE DISNEY BUSSES BETWEEN THE PARKS AND RESORTS ARE FREE AND REGULAR. FOR EXAMPLE, IF YOU ARE AT EPCOT AND MISS THE 16:10 BUS, YOU COULD HOP ONTO A SHUTTLE TO MAGIC KINGDOM AND GET THE 17:45 BACK TO THE HOTEL.

THERE ARE NO DIRECT BUSSES TO DOWNTOWN DISNEY, HOWEVER HOP ONTO A FREE DISNEY SHUTTLE FROM ANY OF THE PARKS TO SARATOKA SPRINGS RESORT AND ITS A FIVE MINUTE WALK FROM THERE.

THERE ARE NO DIRECT BUS FROM THE HOTEL TO THE WATER PARKS BUT AGAIN FREE DISNEY SHUTTLES GO FROM ALL THE PARKS, ALL BE IT VIA A RESORT.

TAXIS;
ABOUT $6 EACH WAY TO DOWNTOWN DISNEY. ABOUT $20 EACH WAY TO MAGIC KINGDOM. $15 EACH WAY TO EPCOT, $30 EACH WAY TO EITHER THE FLORIDA MALL OR THE MALL AT MILLENIA.

COSTS:
A TYPICAL BURGER AND FRIES IN A DISNEY PARK SERVICE COUNTER IS BETWEEN 8-10 $. DRINKS ARE $3 INCLUDING TAX, SAME FOR AN ICE CREAM OR POPCORN. FOR A SIT DOWN MEAL YOU ARE LOOKING AT 25-35 $ PER ADULT FOR THREE COURSES OR BUFFET, MINUS DRINKS TAX AND SERVICE. THERE ARE ALSO MORE EXPENSIVE PLACES TO EAT TOO.

THERE ARE LOTS OF GOOD VALUE PLACES TO EAT NEAR THE HOTEL:cici pizza buffet, sizzler, shoneys, subway, steak n shake, papa johns pizza, chillys, to name but a few. Furthermore, a 15-20 minute walk away will bring you to Mcdonalds, golden corrall buffet and the highly recommended bahama breeze. There are also two chinese buffets withing walking distance, and two supermarkets.

We stayed 2/20/12 thru 2/24/12, 2 adults and one tween. We had a 2 bedroom suite, plenty of room for the three of us. Location was convenient to the Disney parks, good supermarket within walking distance. Nice pool, friendly staff. We would recommend this hotel to friends and family and would return ourselves.

This is our second stay over there. It is always a very pleasant stay. The rooms are big and clean. We are a family of 5 so we all had room to sleep and starch. Two nice size bedrooms and two bath. The beds are comfortable as well. The kitchen was perfect for a family on vacation even though we only used the fridge and the microwave. Disney and Universal Studios allow you to bring food and drinks; so our fridge had water and soda ready for us. The breakfast was adequate. They had make your own waffles, eggs, some kind of breakfast meat (bacon/sausage/ham) rotated daily, yogurt, cereal, some kind of pastry and drinks (milk/coffee/team/soda/juices). They also have a manager reception at night 3 days a week from 5 PM to 7PM. That one is somewhat ok. One time they had BBQ food, it was good and free. Regardless of the food, they had free wine and soda as well which is not bad if you are going to order something in. The location is also wonderful. There is a big plaza across the Street from it where you can find casual dining. On the other side there is a Walgreen which is very convent if someone got sick (it has one of these quick clinks) or you forgot your sun block. It is very close to Disney. Again, on your way to and from Disney there are sooooooo many dining choices. The way the hotel was designed, no matter what room you are in, you are close enough to the lobby (which has the breakfast era) and the pool. Also, the parking is a all around the hotel, so you can always find a parking spot close to your room. I have nothing to bad to say about this hotel. All good. Not very fancy but clean and comfortable which what we care about. The only thing they can improve is the check in time. 4PM is abit late

Room Tip: sign up for their Premier member before you reserve. They tend to give rooms closer to the lobby. As...
