The Good
The majority of the reviews sourced for this analysis were positive, with much praise going to the hotel's location, staff and rooms.

The hotel's location was praised by many reviewers, who found it close to Magic Kingdom, Universal Studios, SeaWorld, restaurants, shopping, Walmart and highway access. One guest noted, "Ideal base for visiting theme parks and restaurant, and the outlet village is behind the hotel, which is handy for last minute shopping and bargains. Wal-Mart is a few minutes down the road, and great for stocking up on supplies".

Numerous guests enjoyed the level of customer service they received, characterizing the staff as friendly, helpful, efficient and professional. One patron remarked, "Being from Hawaii, we believe that the beauty of a place is determined by the people living there, or in this case, hosting you. Having a great staff with lots of " ALOHA ", from your reception desk, concierges, housekeeping staff and management makes it easy for us to recommend and return to stay at your resort".

Several lodgers enjoyed their accommodations at the hotel. They described their rooms as clean, spacious and well equipped, with comfortable beds, quiet air conditioning and great views of the Disney fireworks. A few travellers had complaints about their lodgings, however (see below).
