Not for me
There is a nice coat of paint on the outside but the rooms are not clean. My door didn't shut correctly, there was a gap. The guy next door smoked outside his room, and it all came in my room. Old key locks, the card locks were on the door just not used. There was black (maybe mold) on the strings of the blinds. Big nicks on the furniture. Bathroom floor tile, in-front of the sink, was not flat. the grout was indented making it so uncomfortable to stand on. I also found a couple of small ants in the bathroom. There are two restaurants next door, one had a band playing (little too late, too loud, I had a 6 am flight) the other one had a guy playing keyboard. Views of the lake/river were nice. Pool looked nice, I didn't use it. Check out: it was early 4 am, and I had to track down the front desk guy, there wan't a bell to ring, he was in the banquet room. I asked if I could check out and he told me I to just leave the key on the counter. Didn't ask me about my stay or anything. WiFi was very spotty, and slow.

Great stay, bad wifi
The room and grounds are very clean and only 15 mins from Sanford-Orlando Airport. Staff is friendly. Location is convenient and beautiful. Plenty of parking. We stayed in a room facing the lake, and it was in good condition, but I was a bit confused about the random cords everywhere (the power strip balanced precariously on the edge of the desk, the extension cord behind the nightstand that I thought would be convenient for my phone, until it sparked and blew my charger brick, the plug dangling off the wall that the a/c was plugged into). The hot water was consistent and housekeeping visited each day and refilled our towels, made the beds nicely, and restocked us on personal items and water bottles (nice touch). Fridge, microwave, coffee maker, and iron in the room. Free continental breakfast each morning from 6-9 was a nice surprise. My ONLY real complaint was the wifi. It was HORRIBLE. None of our devices would stay connected for more than a minute or 2. I brought my Fire Stick, as I do for all hotels I visit, but since my phone and tablet could not maintain any sort of a connection, it was a lost cause. Overall it was a very nice stay. I like that there are security cameras outside, especially on the sides of the hotel facing the lake that are out of the direct view of the hotel office. I would stay again, but definitely hope they get the wifi upgraded or extended.

Basic rooms, but nicely furnished. WIFI very slow. Rooms need updated. Bathrooms very small. But overall, very nice place and location for the price. Don't count on the "continental breakfast", basically cereal and bananas.
