Any recs for a clean, but no frills hotel for 1 night?

We'll be driving to WBC from the Atlanta area, but aren't sure how early we'll be able to leave home b/c DH is working on our departure day. We hope to get as close to WBC as possible, but since we don't know if we'll do the whole drive in one day or not, we need something where we can just show up with an hour or so notice. It's unlikely we'll arrive before 10 pm, so we'll basically just sleep there, and leave ASAP in the morning, so we're looking for something inexpensive, but clean. If it's within 20 mins or so of AK, that would be ideal, b/c we plan to go there that morning, then check into WBC after we're done there. Any specific suggestions? I know I can check the expedia, but there are so many options, it's hard to know how long it will take to get to the parks from them, and all of the reviews for the <$60ish places seem to be pretty awful.

How about one of these? Both are Marriott's budget level hotels, but they are still clean and nice enough for what you need. They are within 15-20 minutes of Animal Kingdom and convenient to WBC if you wanted to check in before heading to the park.

Hope this helps. Enjoy Orlando.

The Baymont Inn in Celebration on Black Lake Rd is $60 a night, located 5 minutes from the AK. has free breakfast or there is a McD's next door.
To get to the AK park from this hotel pull out of the parking lot and turn left. The road dead ends 500 feet from the hotel so turn left on to Sherberth Rd. Drive about 1 mile till you come to the first traffic light then turn right onto Osceola Pkwy and the AK park is 1000 feet ahead on the left.

We stayed at Clarion Suites Maingate for one night in January. Got it on Priceline (not bidding) for $59. It was clean, spacious, awesome pool, includes breakfast, the whole pool area/verandah area felt very tropical. Perfect for one night. It took us 7 minutes to drive to Art of Animation the next morning.
