The hotel's location was praised by numerous lodgers, who found it to be close to restaurants, Disney World, Magic Kingdom, shopping, grocery stores and Universal Studios. One guest stated, "This is a great hotel for people looking for somewhere to stay that is clean and close to everything. Lots of restaurants in the area of all different price ranges".

Many guests were pleased with their accommodations at the hotel.

The Bad
While the majority of reviews consulted for this analysis were positive, there were a few complaints about the rooms, noise transfer and the value.

A few lodgers complained of noise disturbances during their stay. They reported noisy children running in the hallways, and noise from guests in adjacent rooms, as well as noisy in-room air-conditioning units and mini-fridges.

While several guests described the hotel's rates as great and reasonable, a few reviewers had complaints about the extra costs they incurred while staying at the hotel. They felt the mandatory resort fee and the fee for breakfast were too expensive and should have been included in the rates.

Guest Recommendations
"The room was good and the a/c worked very well. I,wish I could say the same for Royal Palm Ball Room. The a/c system didn't work and a couple of hundred people were a little hot and sticky."
