"Not a "Resort""
July, 2016
This MOTEL is not what it looks on the website. They have 5 stunning pools, ah one per building and not maintained. The pool water was hot and had lots of chlorine. My husband found a roach in the bathroom. My lil one has asthma and mildew is his number one trigger, and yes it was bad when in just a few hours he was sneezing and then thethe wheezing came. We had to checkout and check into a different hotel because my childs health was compromised. One of the hotel staff did say, that they have had mildew and bed bugs in the past. I would have to say a positive would be it's location and the various establishments near by. I purchased this as a package deal that included two parks.
Tip: Looks and smells like a motel on the side of the road. But, the front desk staff and restaurant buffet staff are friendly.

The rooms are average, clean. Could use an upgrade. They are worth $50 per night, not the $125 they say they normally get. The pool was very nice.
Tip: Their breakfast buffet for $7.95 per person. Go to Dennys for better food.

"Only stay here if you cant afford anything else!!"
June, 2016
HORRIBLE place inside. The outside is cute and the pool looks good. BUUUUT then you go inside. The instant you are there at check in they try to get you to buy more stuff lol and then when you get to your room it is just horrible. The inside of our bathroom was moldy looking and had a couple roaches. The "Cleaning" man thought that my money left on the counter was his "tip" he said because he took it! It took me 3days to get it back because he was always "busy" or not around. Just would not stay there again. Was not pleased at all. The hotels we stayed at on the way down for only $42 was nicer! (road trip from texas). Thankfully we didn't spend much time in the room since we were at Disney.
Tip: Roaches, Theft, Dirty

I called ahead to see if we could use the shuttle to Disney the day we were staying the night. I was told ues no problem. I arrived and asked about the shuttle and eas told that I needed to be checked in to use the shuttle. She told me they had never done that. I told her what I was told over the phone and she handed me a blank room key and said it might work. I actually had no problem but it caused a great deal of anxiety. Room was ok but not worth the price.
Tip: Shuttle times to Disney are extremely limited and there is no guarantee you will get a ride.

Reviewed July 19, 2017 NEW
I was really hoping to give this hotel a good review, as I find people are more likely to give bad reviews, than good. We didn't expect a 5 star hotel, but after visiting Orlando many times, we at least expected somewhere clean, with good service and not being ripped off and spoken to like dirt. I come from a hotel background as my parents ran hotels most of my life, so I know what I am talking about. When I booked the holiday the company we booked with assured me the resort fees were included and gave me the hotel voucher that stated that was the case. To be sure I emailed the hotel on the 18th April and 10 June 2017, email address taken from their website, to confirm that the resort fees were included and attached a copy of the hotel voucher, both emails were unanswered. When we booked in, I asked the man on the front desk to confirm this was correct, he ignored me, so I asked him again and then he reread the voucher and said yes they were included. He then told me they were putting a hold on my credit card for incidentals, I asked how much he replied $77. The hotel room was very run down, but cleanish. The chambermaid was very friendly and even when my son was not well one day, was very concerned that she had not managed to get in and clean the room, so I signed her sheet and she gave me clean towels. The room wasn't spotless, but most of it is major wear and tear. The man in the shop, was also very rude and we walked out one evening. The morning we checked out, we wanted to get off early, to go to a water park, before we moved onto our next destination. I checked out and asked when the hold would be taken off our credit card and confirm no charges were made to it. I was then told they had put a hold of $140 on it and not $77 like we were told, then they were charging us $132 for resort fees, I produced the hotel voucher and was told that they will be charging us unlike it was in black and white. I asked to speak to someone about it and was told I would have to wait, till reservations came in. I asked why I was lied to when I checked in and this could have been avoided if they had replied to my emails, or at least in the 12 days I had stayed with them. I asked to see a manager and after I was told he was in a meeting and I would have to wait. Eventually he turned up and told me resort fees had to be paid. He did go in the back office and eventually came out and said they still had to be paid and implied it had been put on the voucher fraudulently. I saw red, I asked why they had not replied to either email and was told I was not a customer of theirs, as I hadn't booked direct, so they would not reply to my emails. SO the money I paid for the room and whilst I was staying with them, in the hotel didn't make me a customer?????? I could not believe what I was hearing. I asked them to contact the holiday company I had booked with in the UK, but I was told, their phones did not call out of the USA, I asked if there was a payphone I could use my phone card with and suddenly I was given their reception phone to use. Funny that a couple of minutes before it didn't ring out of the USA. I had to pay resort fees as they were taken them off my credit card, without my permission anyway. I contacted the company I bought the holiday with and they are going to refund them to me. I am totally disgusted with the way we were treated and am very pleased the company I bought the holiday off, have said they will not deal with this hotel anymore, I would not like anyone to go through this, as we lost a day in the water park, as by the time this was dealt with we had to move onto our next destination, plus it upset our holiday we had worked very hard to pay for. DISGUSTING CUSTOMER SERVICE. The 'Director of Operations' who we spoke to didnt even stay around to deal with us, left the receptionist to deal with us.

I've stayed here over the years many, many times and I even wrote a good review back in 2011. Sadly this review is not one of them. I'm staying in this resort right now and it's my last as I'm never staying here again. I stayed here at the end of March and was put way back in building 14 and was put in a filthy, moldy room that clearly doesn't get cleaned well. I got here today at 1pm and was told with an attitude by Unique at the front desk that check in is at 3pm so I could not check in. No problem I get that rooms need to be cleaned. Go back up at 2:45 and ask if I could go ahead and check in (after seeing the housekeepers finish many rooms) and once again I get an attitude but I'm now able to check in. I asked of I could get a room other than building 14 because I stayed last time and it was dirty, with mold on the walls, cob webs, and peeling paint and I told the housekeeper but she never mentioned it to the front of course. So I get building 2. Rm 117. Look at the pictures, it will show you what I'm talking about. Worse than last time. I'm not even going back up to the front because I'm not dealing with HER again and obviously the owners do not take pride in their property. Complaints clearly fall on deaf ears here. I know the place is cheap in price but every single time with the exception of this and last visit, it's always been clean. Not anymore, it's gone downhill fast.

Mold everywhere in the bathroom and no one is ever at the front desk. The place was not livable and should have known with the price being so cheap. I think hotels need to do a better job of how they name their business because this was NOT a resort.

The staff seemed inconvenienced that we wanted to check in. I had called a few days before to go from my reservation again and the woman on the phone was angry that I would call and check. My room keys were just thrown on the counter and told me which room I was in. We got lot on our way because we were not given any instructions on how to get to our room. Main the way we found garbage, dirty laundry in commons areas, broken signs and lights. When we got to our room it seemed fine at first glance but upon further inspection there were white stains on one of the comforters and a red orange stain on another piece of furniture. The area around the motel did not feel safe either as there were random people wandering through and the doors to the room were very flimsy. We checked out that night and when back to Disney property. I would never recommend this property !
