“we enjoyed our stay”
Reviewed 13 April 2012

We stayed here in 2009. We really enjoyed our stay, but I decided this year to pick another hotel that had a fancy pirate ship pool for my kids who are 6 & 7 years old. I really regret going elsewhere. The Floridays had a lovely lobby, nice big clean rooms, heated pool and towel/trash service was included. This other hotel was very basic, no frills. Also, we were upgraded from the 2 bedroom we reserved to a 3 bedroom at check in for no extra charge. The customer service was fabulous and the concierge was helpful. I liked being right there on International Drive. We could just jump on the trolley to get to all theme parks. The hotel had a shuttle but it dropped your off early in am and picked up late in day. We wanted freedom to come and go when we wanted. Next time, we will come back to this hotel.

Room Tip: Better to be close the lobby and pool - complex is very spread out.

We stayed there with 6 kids in the age of 7 to 19 years. For big families it's a good place to stay. It's near the theme parks, shopping and restaurants.

selected this hotel mainly on assumption that number 1 rating on trip advisor must be good. On the plus side the rooms were very spacious and the wi fi good. However cleanliness was disappointing. several hairs greeted us in the bath. greasy lights above kitchen island. rubbish outside door remained for 6 days. apartment was dark. the pools were smaller than would be expected for a resort of this size. i normally stay in 4 star hotels. this seemed to me like a low three star. the drawer in the bedroom was so rough i had to place a towel in it to protect clothes. very good location and staff were pleasant. toiletries cheap and nasty. as they have a non cleaning policy (trash and tidy) policy be prepared to vacuum and clean yourself if there for more than a few days. its a mystery how this resort is ranked so highly.

Room Tip: look closely at competitors first

Good hotel to use as forward operating base for visiting the Disney and Universal parks and Cape Canaveral ( you have to go there) .
Effective location that's easy to get to from the airport. It has spacious rooms and lounge area, comfortable beds , jacquzi , adequately equipped kitchens and close proximity to a variety of restaurants and supermarket along International Drive.
The rooms are clean and the staff very obliging with nothing being to much trouble. The lady at the conceierge is a mine of information.

Pool size is adequate for the late afternoon swim. It does get crowded during US school holidays but that is only to be expected. I accept the rooms are getting a little tired and could do with a make over but that wouldnt put me off staying there , after all all you want is a bed and some where for breakfast and a swim. The rest of the time we were in the parks.

We compared it to other hotels on and off the Disney Resort parks and it won hands down on issues of cost, space and location. We will be staying there again soon.
Cheers

Room Tip: That would depend on your own preference. Ask the check in staff who gave us a choice of four rooms...

Rooms were clean on the surface, but I found a dead lizard between the TV in the master bedroom and the wndow, so I doubt they thoroughly clean the rooms. However, the rest of the two bedroom suite was in good condition, despite also needing a good thorough clean. This property is very conveniently located, however I highly recommened a rental car if staying at this location. Although the shuttle is reliable, it can take a very long time to get to your destination. The emenities in the suites are quite good. I liked the convenience of having a washer and dryer in the room. Additionally, the kitchen area is great for family gatherings, if you are traveling with a larger party I agree with other reviewers that the main pool area gets too crowded, and seems to close early. You will be hard pushed to find a place to rest by the pool on busier days. Note that as others have mentioned, the hotel does in fact charge a daily fee for amenities which I believe is based on the number of people in your party. $50 for its amenities (compulsory). If you do need extra supplies, other than what is in your room at check in, you will need to make a request to the front desk. Overall, I would stay at this hotel again simply because I like the convenience, and the suites are a great size for a family.
