This turned out to be a great location all around. Staff was friendly and provided great service. The restaurant staff was on point keeping the items stocked and looking fresh even though they were busy. Check in was painless informative while the express check out made our exit seamless.

Great time in Orlando, Florida. The hotel was great, good customer service. I truly enjoyed myself the weather was nice it was 93 degrees daily. Plenty of sun and fun near everything, walking distance to the water park. Food and shopping 5 minutes away, Universal around the corner and highway right there.

This is the 4th time we stay at this hotel and they have consistently delivered to our expectations.
