Most comfortable resort for sleeping??

We just returned from a split stay at some dvc villas, and while we love the extra space in a studio- the sofa beds aren't good
We may return for a quick trip again this year and would prefer to try a place with 2 beds- preferably one without a yucky bedspread ( LOVED the triple sheeting at Bay Lake). We also need a quiet room....Have never stayed at values and only POR years ago, but would love to do a cheap trip so anything is possible. Don't care about location as we actually won't be doing many park days...
Are values noisy? Beds good?
Swan/Dolphin beds as good as they sound?

Just looking for a clean place to get a good night's sleep!

Swan/Dolphin beds are wonderful!!! The beds at most of Disney deluxe resorts seem about the same to me. They are fine, but not exceptional. I do like the beds in the CR, but it's been a while since I stayed here. I'm going again in 3 weeks, so I will be able to answer better as to the beds in a months time. I agree about the sofa beds - I like to sleep on a real bed and we need at least 2, so the DVC studio are useless to us.

If looking for quiet rooms with good value and lots of comfortable sleeping the CR GW GV rooms are great. They have the same room layout/beds as the tower while having some very peaceful views and quiet rooms. The quietest are the third floor, but those do not have a balcony if that matters to you. If going in a really hot or dicey weather time of year these rooms are very convenient and comfortable.

If looking for good beds at a reasonable price and more seclusion I would consider the AKL in luxury. The AKL savanna views are great! With just animals outside your balcony, it is very peaceful and fun to watch the animals walking around outside your room! Another resort that is secluded and peaceful is the WL. It is quite comfortable and peaceful while still near the MK if you like that area.

The best moderate beds, IMO, are in CSR. The most secluded rooms are in the Ranchos, but they are a good hike from the main building. I would request a preferred room or book a room in the business building (9A) and ask for top floor. Views of the lake and the resort are so peaceful!! If not booking a preferred/business, we like building 4 in Casitas. It's near everything but not TOO close.

Personally, I don't find the value beds to be quite as comfortable, although they are good enough. Also, the pace at value resorts seems very upbeat and lively, sometimes to the point of hectic. Inside the rooms are quiet enough though, so if you opt to stay here, I would recommend POP as the best choice. I like rooms overlooking the lake, if you can get it.

Good luck!

Personally, I think CR has the best beds on property. I could just spend an entire week in bed sleeping!

However, I have stayed at most of the resorts and I haven't really had a bad bed yet. Keep in mind that the value resorts have doubles instead of queens, so if you're sharing that is less room.

If you like the studio concept, but want two real beds, give a thought to Old Key West. They have a second regular bed instead of a sofa bed, but you still have the kitchenette. Just a thought.

The quietest resort for sleeping would probably be the WL villas. It's like a library in there! Even their quiet pool is quiet.

Speaking only for where I have stayed, I've found consistently great sleep at CSR (NOT pool view) and CBR.

The worst was AoA.

As far as values and quiet, I prefer ASMusic, TOP floor, again NOT facing a pool.

Thanks for the responses-
I have heard/read that in a value, you can hear all of the neighbors noise...? We are an early to bed, early to rise family and I'm a little worried about large group noise etc. at values.

We are an early to bed, early to rise family and have been just fine at Pop the last 2 trips. Room location definitely makes a difference!

It's been awhile since we stayed there but I agree with a pp. okw sounds like it may be your place. We have only been on points so I can't speak to cost but there are two beds and they are comfy. I think of it as a very quiet resort and its a good place to sleep.

I've stayed at AKL, CR, OKW, ASSp, Pop, YC, and POFQ.

I would rank them on a scale of 1 -10 (1 is can't hardly sleep on them, 10 is can't hardly leave them):

AKL: 8
CR: 25 (I wanted to bring that bed home with me. THAT bed.)
OKW: 5
ASSp: 2
Pop: 1 (it felt like that hard, hard bed bowed in the middle towards the ceiling!)
POFQ: 7
YC: 8

I am pretty sure POR still uses comforters. CSR has duvets I believe, but its possible they have switched to triple sheeting. Can't speak for other resorts, but I am with you on that! It's unfortunate that I think most of the resorts still use the comforters...

That's true unless you have a room overlooking the walkway between the main resort and Villas. It was clack clack bang of luggage and housekeeping carts over the boards at all times of the day and night!

To the OP's question .. I suggest OKW.
