Dirty looking on the grounds. Staff is not friendly. It looked ghetto. Our neighbors also loved to listen to music at midnight.

Nunca me limpiaron la habitación en los 4 días que me quede, no habían toallas y tampoco recogieron la basura, leo peor lugar que me he quedado en mis viajes

Well all went well at my stay and everything that was advertised was fulfilling! What I didn’t like wasn’t advertised so I’m ok ! And I would stay again because we’re just coming off COVID so and I know it would have been better had it not been for COVID-19!

I want a refund property over booked we slept outside

Unfortunately I can not recommend this hotel . The room was disgusting with huge cockroaches in it. At first I thought we got unlucky, but when we decided we were not going to stay, everyone in the lobby was complaining about something in their rooms. The poor man at the desk was dealing with a huge line of angry guests all by himself . There is no reason this man should have been by himself on a Saturday night . He not only deserves a raise but management owes him a HUGE apology because he was setup to fail. He was respectful the whole time even when he had guests literally yelling in his face .

Dirty room, outdated room, only 1 working pool. It’s like a shelter being ran there.

Good customer service. Reasonable rate. Easy access to local attractions

Dirty outside but clean inside. No running shower.

This hotel was truly atrocious in every way imaginable. From the stained carpets, to the broken doors, dirty hallways and stairs, to the non-working phones and ice machines. This has been, without a doubt, the worst place I have ever stayed in. I am so glad I did not bring anyone with me on this trip because I would have been truly embarrassed by choosing to stay at this place.

Nothing to like. The pictures on their website were very deceiving. My wife and I felt very betrayed upon seeing the property and getting in the room. The room was very dirty and smelled like an ashtray(we specifically mentioned a non smoking room). I had my 10month old daughter in this Disney trip and was very concerned for her health. The carpet felt as if it hasn't been cleaned in years! I even tried to talk to the housekeeper and ask if she could replenish the toiletries and empty out the trash bins, she just said 'call the front desk to schedule a cleaning'. Like isn't that what she was going around the hotel for? Overall, for the price that we paid, it would have been a lot better and probably cheaper, to have just stayed inside Disney World and have made my stay stress free.

That places was so ghetto. The room smelled like cigarettes upon my arrival the blankets were stained the chairs were stained. The place needs a whole new makeover. And there a pile of human feces right in the parking lot. Neighbors were very loud. Horrible experience overall

Mold on the walls. Bugs. Dirty room. No maid service. Paint peeling off the walls. Dirty carpet. I will not ever stay there again.

I didn't appreciate that the hotel was in poor condition with bad residents there with bad intentions. I did not feel safe at all during my stay.

Horrible nasty roaches everywhere someone’s bag was thrown out right by the steps it’s basically An extended stay we just needed one night before our original reservation and my family has never packed their bags so fast to get out a hotel

I really liked the one pool, this property has 2 pools, but only one was in used.

We stay out side the room cause the elictronick keys don’t work....😭promises to give another room went did not fund availability ...at night Promised another free night and second day they dienied ...The Worst Experience

I found a syringe in my room. There were bugs caked on the curtains. There was bar soap stuck to the bathtub and we didn’t even have bar soap. The carpets were dirty, and the furniture was busted up and not clean. The manager refused to grant us a partial refund even after he promised he would.
