Hotel Manage is over I-5 north on Harbor. It gets mixed reviews though. It's a hip place for the young and partying. Not great for quiet families.

Some people don't like the noise of the 24 hour pools and the music played there most of the day that gives it a party atmosphere. Or of I-5 running behind it.

Others love the hip, boutique style hotel that it is.

Thanks for this thread!! We're going for a few days in March and I am driving myself crazy trying to figure out where to stay. Price vs further walk. Every time I decide on one I read a review that changes my mind.

We're trying to find a place to stay for the end of Sept/begin of Oct this year (yes, I know - just a few weeks away!)

We're so used to staying at WDW, that trying to find a decent hotel without spending a fortune is killing me!

Any thoughts on the Carousel Inn??

I didn't see the Jolly Roger on your list..stayed there for EXPO and it's right near the Convention Center and about 15 minute steady walk to park. Price was $70 a night through Hotels.com. Pros...price, rooms nicely remodeled. Cons, outside is kind of shabby, no breakfast of any kind, coffee maker is odd and makes 1 cup, no frig unless you pay extra and internet was sketchy.

I'll add it to the list right now... for my family, I'll put it on the 2nd string list, but it's not an absolute no, IMO.

I just updated a bunch of the hotels' amenities, but not quite all yet.

We liked it and would possibly stay there again and posted a review. However, I think 10 minutes walking is faster than many with families will manage. My son and I did a one day trip in May and got this hotel through Hotwire and timed the walk there at 14 minutes; back it was a bit longer.

We just stayed at the Ramada Maingate for $64.25 per night. It was great. Here's a link to my review with pics.

You really got a super deal! I couldn't book more than 1 1/2 months ahead for my stay due to our family's unknown schedule this fall... and I needed a refundable rate in case of emergency, so I had to pay a little more. I was able to reserve the deluxe two queen for $100.

Be sure to call the hotel and ask to apply the tripadvisor $10 off per night coupon if you didn't already! And make sure you request a renovated room!

Please let us all know how it went when you get back! I went ahead and booked BWPPI via their own website for my December trip as I couldn't find any recent reviews of completed stays using LMT. I had read some very unfavorable reviews (of LMT hotel reservations, not of Stovall's) but they were all a couple of years old. If a fellow Disboard-er gives a good review, I won't hesitate next time to book my hotel through LMT. $65 is an AWESOME price for Stovall's!

I used it too to get Anaheim Quality Inn and Suites for $40 per night. We're broke college kids, so we want to do Disney on a super duper budget. Plus we've stayed there before so we know it's okay enough for our standards. Glad to know more people are using "the tip" xD.

I loved the the Carousel. The walk was very, very short!! The only issue I had was the rooms were to small for our liking (the bathroom was huge though). The room also seemed to be crowded with furniture. There wasn't much room to walk around. We were in a King room right next door to the room where they have the continental breakfast and didn't have any issues with noise.
