If you don't mind, stains on your mattresses and sheets, dirty towels, rude management, cockroaches and bugs, drug dealers, prostitutes and homeless people outside your door, and no Gator….then this is the place for you…sure is cheap!

We decided to go to the Gator Motel during our November trip because of one single gimmick, a giant alligator sitting outside in the parking lot. You can understand our disappointment to find it gone when we arrived. The (friendly) owner told us that it had only recently been taken down. The motel itself must have known better days too....

My family and I stayed at the Gator Motel a number of times and they were all amazing stays. The folks who run and manage this hotel are very warm and friendly, we have never thought of staying anywhere else. Very close to the parks and restaurants in the area. Will go there again and recommend this to our friends.

Have stayed in 3 different rooms here now. TV reception is horrible, microwave didn't work in one of the rooms. One of them smelled like someone peed on the floor in the bathroom and even after cleaning it still smelled horrible. Roaches. Each room seems like it's been pieced together. Different fridge and microwaves in some of the rooms. Some... More

We have stayed at the Gator Motel several times and have not thought about going anywhere else. I've never thought about writing a review but after the number of times i've been here and our experiences, i felt inclined to do so - the folks who manage the place are very welcoming and really make us feel at home.

Had 3 days here at the end of a long kids Disney/Universal exhausting holiday. A real slice of Americana, no frills but clean comfortable and so typical of American 70's (think Apollo 13 movie) pool near rooms with individual air conditioners and those ubiquitous traditional bedspreads. Stayed with ex-wife and my 2 girls - It is convenient for the local... More

Ok so I dont usually do reviews but this one is a must. I went to visit a friend in Kissimee. Front desk very old school and creepy. So we checked in into a room... It was a smoking room BTW... WOW... What is this?... The decor was late 1970 with some really freaky cat pics hanging by the bed.... More
