Couldn't even see out our windows. Moved rooms once due to no heat and 40 degrees at night. Juice box behind nightstand and clearly dirty floors. Holiday weekend and only one staff for late check in which we waited about an hour very late at night even though we called ahead. 2 out of 5 showers were cold. Had to get up at 7am if I wanted a hot shower. Parking was confusing and maps didn't help. We were rushed out of first room to second and left behind brand new pajamas and sunglasses. Called housekeeping and SURPRISE they weren't found. The main picture on Travelocity is not even close to what the hotel looks like.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for 5 nights for our 6-day visit to Disney. ROOM 1: MOLDY SMELL I immediately noticed that our room smelled really old, damp, and moldy. I thought we could get used to the stench, but after spending about an hour there, I started getting a horrible headache. We couldn't tolerate it anymore so I went to the front lobby to have our room changed. They said they would call me when our new room was ready. I waited for more than an hour but they never called. When I returned to the lobby, they explained that they tried but my room phone was broken. My room was a 10-second walk from the reception desk. ROOM 2: LEAKING TOILET Our second room didn't have any bad smell but I noticed the carpet was slightly damp. We left and returned to our room past midnight exhausted but happy that our room didn't stench. But after a few minutes, my wife came screaming out from the bathroom. I rushed inside to notice that there were brownish water leaking from between the floor and toilet fixture, gradually seeping towards the bedroom carpet. We used all the towels to dam the flow from reaching the carpet but it kept coming out. We really wanted to go to bed but I called the front lobby to get our room changed again. ROOM 3: GREAT We moved to our third and final room about 3 in the morning. This room had no problems and we stayed there for the remaining 4 nights. But well, if it doesn't smell like toxin and the toilet doesn't leak brownish water, any room is better.

Clean room, comfortable beds. Front desk staff friendly and helpful. Close proximity to WDW parks. Only drawback was when housekeeping/maintenance staff hung out in corridor before 9AM - loud talking/joking/socializing woke us up every morning.
