excellent stay

Pros: Cleanliness. Extremely clean and fresh smelling.
Cons: Housekeeping staff.
Location: Excellent
The only problem we encountered was with housekeeping. They came and clean the room and made the beds everyday but they did not replenish the toilet tissue or the bath towels. We had to constantly beg for towels and on several occasions I simply found a cart and took them. They also need to hire staff that speak English. Every time we ask for towels or tissue they would pretend they didn't understand English. Very frustrating.

Just what I was looking for!

Pros: Convenient location . We were also able to purchase our park tickets at the hotel to avoid the long lines at the parks.
Location: The location was within 15 minutes to either WDW or Universal theme park.
Very good! Got a great room with a king sized bed. The bed was firm and comfortable, bathroom was clean and I liked the shower stall too. Convenient restaurant!

Hello Bob, I just want to say first thank you for choosing to stay with us. I do apologize for our adjustable beds not being as comfortable as expected our hotel is working on getting new mattress so our guest can have a good nights rest. We hope that you will come back and stay with us again.

Lake Buena Vista area, great pool, good room

Pros: The pool and hot tub were great, room was clean and comfortable, and reasonably priced, yummy breakfast.
Cons: Leave ample bath towels, each day there were only 3 and we were a family of 4
Location: Lake Buena Vista area; tons of shopping and restaurants, near Wonderworks - a fantastic place to go! Also near Sea World and Downtown Disney.
We stayed for two nights after driving to Orlando from NC. We needed a hotel before we started our Disney parks trip on the third day, and this hotel was clean and comfortable, good location in the Lake Buena Vista area. We loved the pool and hot tub. Reasonably priced breakfast was delicious.

Quiet location.

Pros: Quiet area.
Cons: Beds and pillows, leave the pool open until 11 pm.
Location: Outlet mall, restaurants mad other shops all very convenient.
Pillows were ridiculous and offered no support at all. We had to use 3 pillows to get the affect of one. Not comfortable. The bed had a dial for soft and firm, and my wife's side of the bed wouldn't soften at all. Not comfortable beds and we were glad we only stayed two nights.

Excellent Service offered...

This hotel offers an excellent service. The employees at the front desk offer a good service but the house keeping is a different  story.  I stayed here with my wife and my kids for 8 days but unfortunately every night we were required to ask for a towel at the front desk because their housekeeping employee only left three towels every day.  I speak with a housekeeping employee and she told me that it's their policy to only left three towels per room.  I left several messages requesting to have 4 towels on my room but they only left three. Also we were required to request for toiletries at the front desk because their housekeeping employee forgot to leave required amount of toiletries on my room.  The rooms were clean, spacious and the beds were comfortable. A Microwave and fridge were included. The staff was very helpful and polite. The price is very reasonable.  We would definitely stay again. Their parking is free and they offer complementary wifi. Overall price, location and service are good. I will stay here again...

Enjoyed stay

This hotel was clean and I did get my HHonor points. Had adjustable beds which we liked. Usually the Garden Inns have a free breakfast, this one charges $9.95. Other restaurants are not close.

Upon arrival I wasn't greeted very cheerfully, and was told that my stay couldn't be applied to my Hilton honors

Pros: Free Internet, Quiet
Cons: no free breakfast, not walking distance to disney boardwalk
The hallways were not very clean, with stains on walls, carpeting ..air condition not working in hallway as well. Room was nice, except desk chair was not clean. but bed not very comfortable even though I adjusted it to firm, it was softer than I like. This hotel is in a weird location, but was quiet Thankfully. I would have liked a friendlier more accommodating front desk.
