Affordable, Comfortable and 100% Smoke Free
By Steven Skelley and Thomas Routzong
When we visit Orlando theme parks and attractions, we like to stay close by. It’s also a bonus if the hotel offers shuttle service to the parks. On a recent visit to Disney’s Animal Kingdom, we stayed at the Comfort Inn Maingate in Kissimmee. The newly upgraded hotel was comfortable, affordable, close to theme parks and 100% smoke free.
We asked C.O.O. Ed Swain about the Comfort Inn Maingate.
