    Tom Bricker over at the Disney tourist blog gave CBR a great review. Google it if you are interested!

    We stayed at CBR for seven nights on our first trip in 2010. My husband and I traveled frequently with our jobs and as such were hotel snobs. We never would have tolerated outside access rooms OR the old-style colorful comforters that have been replaced by the duvet covers in most hotel chains. However, this is what you are going to get at CBR ... but you are not going to care. The kids are going to love the Nemo bedding. The outside access didn't bother us in the slightest on Disney property as opposed to a busy urban area. The rooms at CBR are enormous, and the double sinks are a plus too. You are completely correct in that the pool area is fantastic. You absolutely made the right choice in getting a preferred room - we did not, and we did grab & go breakfast every day, meaning my husband had a HUGE hike every morning. We won't make that mistake twice. Yes, the bus makes a ton of stops, but it's not trip-ruining by any means. I think you'll have a great time. We have since stayed at All-Star Movies, and I definitely preferred the moderate because of the bigger rooms and the incomparably better pools. We are staying at Coronado Springs in October, but that's not a knock on CBR. We just wanted a different experience. Enjoy!

    We stayed in a preferred room in Martinique last July. While the furnishings were acceptable, I did think the room had an overall "run down" appearance. In the bathroom there were several old holes in the wall showing where the toilet paper dispenser and towel racks had been replaced, same thing at the door where the bolt was attached. Many scrapes/scratches on the doors and frames. Even in the walkways it was easy to see where paint had peeled and been painted over. Are these "picky" things? Probably so. But they did make an impression on me. You can only repaint things so much before it just looks bad. I think the resort is old and it may be beginning to show.

    We just got back from WDW and stayed at CBR. We had a water view of the lake. BEAUTIFUL :flower3:...We rented a Surrey and rode around. My DH and our friend both rented a boat and drove all over the lakes. :moped: The pool was amazing. :beach: All the kids seemed to love it. 2 hot tubs. We only waited at most 5 minutes for a bus to take us to our parks, no matter if it was early am or mid afternoon. We had short waits at the parks to go back to CBR. :cheer2: The rooms are very clean, plenty of towels. The food court was nice and the food plenty, the couple of times we ate there. It is a moderate resort, but much better then any motel 6 I have ever stayed at. We had did see several of the other resorts, outside and CBR was very nice and I actually liked it better. Glad we went with it instead of a value, for sure.;)
