That is the Baymont Inn and Suites. I just stayed there and it is the only place I will stay in Orlando now. All rooms have mahogany furniture and a 42 inch plasma television. The best part is, you can get to Disney in less than 2 minutes "the back way." Just take Sherberth Rd and you are at Animal Kingdom in 60 seconds.

Also, be prepared for a $5 "resort fee." Parking is free, though. You will love it for $40 total!

Also, after you reserve it, call them and ask for a room "Pool side, 1st floor." The courtyard is quite peaceful.

Awesome! It was, in fact, the Baymont Inn and Suites, right? Don't forget to call them and ask for a room "Pool side, 1st floor." Also, don't be surprised about their $5.18 resort fee when you get there.

Yes it was!!! You must have a magic ball or something!!
The pics of the hotel are great, everything looks new/remodeled and most importantly clean! Bonus is being so close to Disney for early check-in on the 25th!


The address of the hotel was listed as: I am assuming that is the Baymount Inn you were talking about.

Baymont Inn and Suites Celebration
7601 Black Lake Road
Celebration, FL 34747 US

Thank you,
Joi

Great instructions. Sounds like this is a nice place to stay, especially for those of us that arrive late and need a safe, close accommodation.

That's the one! It's not a $150 hotel room, but it far exceeded our expectations for a clean, safe place to stay for the night. The plasma tv and furniture is a huge plus. Make sure to call them and get that "1st floor, pool side" room.

If #2 or 3 above is important, I suggest you use Hotwire instead. You will pay a bit more but still get a great deal. Plus you can book rooms for up to 4 people and you know what amenities the hotel has before you book.

HotelDealsRevealed.com is another good Priceline and Hotwire 'helper' website.
Thanks for the warning about Priceline's occupancy limit of only 2 people per room. Not something I want to risk. HotelDealsRevealed seems like an excellent resource as well.

Just a point of clarification...

Priceline does not have an occupancy LIMIT of only 2 people per room.

Rather, Priceline GUARANTEES occupancy for 2 people per room. That generally means that some hotels have a single king or queen bed rather than two doubles or queens.

In my dozen or so years of using Priceline (at least 30 hotel stays), I've gotten a hotel that would accommodate only 2 people just once.

While it's a risk, I'd suggest that it's a rather small risk. I always recommend that Priceline users check hotel bedroom configuration online after they've won a Priceline bid and call the hotel to make a request if there are rooms with a single bed and rooms with two beds available. I've never been disappointed when I've done that.

I have a slight preference for Priceline over Hotwire, but I am not hesitant to use Priceline with 2 adult and 2 smaller children. I have been given a room with one king and either a pull out sofa bed or just a sofa with no bed on a few occassions. We have managed and I think it's worth the cost savings even if you may not get your most preferred bedding. If I had full size children or more than 2 adults, I may not take the chance on Priceline. I think not receiving two beds is more likely to happen if you check in late or have an extended stay in which the bedding you want may not be available for one of the nights of your stay. Priceline is also more of risk with more than 2 adults for places like NYC in which many hotels have rooms with only 1 bed.

I looked this place up on tripadvisor and it looks like its less than 35.00 worth with cockroaches everywhere. I looked up Baymont Inn and suites and looks to not have many good if any good reviews for Black Lake RD
