We needed a place close to Adventureland. The rates are reasonable and food was good. The hotel is very nice! My daughter had a lot of fun watching the horses too. A good way to relax after a long day at the park.

They did not have my reservationWhen I arrived they did not have my reservation. They had a room, so I took it. I was charged the normal room rate, and after checkout, I was charged again, for not showing up for mr reservation. Still waiting for refund.

Great location and cleanThis is a very nice hotel with a superb location close to shopping and restaurants. Free drinks each night are an added bonus. The free food is a nice feature but if you eat healthy I wouldn't suggest counting on it.

Clean rooms, great staffStaff was great. We had two rooms and they did their best to get them as close together as possible. Rooms were comfortable and clean. I would have preferred the rooms to have a refrigerator, however.

Would stay againBed was super comfy. Wi-fi was terrible and not free. Frustrating to try to do business with weak to no signal in hotel. Only option to try to remedy it was pay for their service at $3-4/ day.
