This hotel/motel is probably more like a, 3.5 in my book. Without the shuttle, this place is a three.
Pros: Really clean room, Comfortable plush beds, close to the Disney Parks and has an EXCELLENT shuttle service. In addition, the hotel service overall is pretty decent. We had a non-functioning refrigerator and a light bulb out. The maintenance person was there to fix the issues within mere minutes of my call.
Cons: Really small rooms. We booked a deluxe room, but I'd be really afraid of the standard. The deluxe room is small by average room sizes. I have no idea how they believe that five people could fit comfortably in that room. There was just two of us, and we had a hard time figuring out where to put our luggage (where it could be accessible) without tripping over it. The bathroom is one of the tiniest I've seen. You can't close the bathroom door without hitting your knees. Both my mom and I had this problem and my mom is only 5' tall! And speaking of that bathroom, the bathroom fan sure was loud. Thank goodness that the bathroom door (which is a knee swiper) shuts out most of the noise. (Talk about a really uncomfortable bathroom visit, if one needs to close the door.)
Although there were a lot of people, who complained of the shutters letting in light, the room seemed plenty dark for us. Also, when the weather isn't too hot, the walk was nice as well. But be forewarned, it's about 1/2 mile (15min walk) from the park. In most cases, it's best to save the feet for all the walking you'll be doing inside the park by taking the handy reliable shuttle.
All in all, this place is either an average hotel or a really nice motel. But I've seen better. If you're looking for a convenient, clean hotel and don't care about the size of the room or bathroom in it, chose this place. If there's more than two of you, stay at a roomier place.
