"This is a nice hotel with many amenities located close enough to disney to make it an easy commute. The pool and hot tub plus a continental breakfast which includes waffles in addition to the usual fruit, rolls, coffee, juice, etc. make this hotel a great deal. We also stayed at this hotel the last time we vacationed in the Orlando area which is why I specifically requested it again."
