This was different from many of the other Residence Inn's we have been to in the past, it was much more spread out, nice property. They have a shuttle bus over to Disney, which is literally like 5 minutes down the road. The surrounding area had lots to do places to eat etc. Dining room was huge, great breakfast every... More

Hotel is being renovated. After three weeks of breakfasts served in plastic to-go boxes in the lobby, the breakfast room is open tomorrow. The lobby will be closed for a month with registration tables set up outside. The marvelous pool area is open and the renovations are not noticeable to folks in the occupied rooms. Be aware that the usual... More

Having stayed here before, we were looking forward to a wonderful 2 night stay. At check-in things began to go wrong, as desk clerk tried to give us a handicap-accessible room on the 3rd floor.

We stayed here on a trip to Disney. The room was clean and the be comfortable, but those were the highlights. The hotel is showing its age and is in need for new paint, wallpaper, caulking, etc. The suite was not well set up for cooking. The staff was nice, and the breakfast was nice as well.

Checked in on November 4th, took the elevator to our room, that was the last time we were able to do so for the duration of our stay as the elevator was then out of order, so we used the stairs every time (we stayed on the 3rd floor and check out tomorrow on the 10th). I will say, a... More
