“A great place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013

We stayed in a 2br condo in the West Village. I loved that is was not in a highrise hotel like setting but one story. We looked out at the golf course so the view was nice. The furnishings were very comfortable and there was lots of room. The kitchen had all we needed and the washer/dryer came in handy. The staff was very nice checking in and asking questions/making reservations. Walked to the Main Street Market for ice cream and hot cocoa several nights. Pool was in walking distance but the weather did not cooperate. Quiet, clean, comfortable and a perfect location central to a lot of attractions.

Room Tip: The 2400 range in the West Village were all one story and walking distance to the reservation buildi...

Two bed condo was clean and large, we had a bungalow in the west village. Three minute drive to the main pool and a short walk to the village pool and main reception/resort area. Pools were clean and lazy river area was great, bought tubes the first day and realized we could just use discarded tubes the rest of the days. Pools were heated one of the days when the temp was cooler.

B-Lined it straight out of the check-in process to avoid timeshare sales but they chased me through the lobby to get me to listen for three minutes. Pretty funny as I completely ignored the calls for "excuse me sir" until I was nearly out of the door, the woman literally chased me down. I told the rep I was not interested in any way, shape or form and they left us alone the rest of the time. The twenty dollar resort credit is a scam to get you to the sales pitch so just tell them you're not interested and you don't want your resort credit "validated". Easy enough.

I found the staff to be not overly friendly but not rude either...not surprising as it's not the Ritz where you'd expect someone to wait on you hand and foot. Only interaction I had with staff post check in was when the kids locked the safe one day and security arrived literally 5 minutes after a call to unlock, pool bar and restaurant staff were friendly.

Close to the parks and just about everything else (shops etc.). Would stay here again for sure.

Greetings! Thanks for your time and sharing your experience with us. Nothing makes us happier than to hear from our guests. We’re glad to hear that you enjoyed our on-site amenities and were able take part in a variety of them. Our resort does encourage our guests offer to take part in a tour that explains a better way to vacation and gives guests an opportunity to have unparalleled flexibility with their ownership. It is, however, completely voluntary. Overall, we are certainly glad you would come back if given the chance so we hope to see you again soon.

Orange lake is a resort in Kissimmee, FL near Orlando. It’s also near Disney, Sea World, and many other attractions. Orange Lake can be a self contained vacation. There are several pools, a lazy river, golf courses, mini golf courses, hot tubs, boats on the lake and many other things to do. There are no cash transactions except if you are buying gift cards that can be used in place of your credit cards. It is said to be the flag ship of Holiday Inn and the biggest and best resort in the fleet.

The good
Lots to do
Close to many restaurants and attractions
Clean and tidy
Shuttle service around the resort

Bad
A little pricy
Long distance to get places depending on where you stay
If you have problems, don’t expect anything to be done about it.

Bottom line
It’s a nice place but there are so many other nice places nearby. I would not recommend staying here. The staff can be very rude and inattentive. Watch your cards because they will add extra stuff to your bill and do nothing about it if you catch it. My opinion: Crooks, inconsiderate workers, rude people. If you don’t have any problems, good place to go. Otherwise, don’t go here.

We have been staying at this resort since 1988. The property has improved every year and has so many amenities that even if you never left your family will have a great vacation. There are pools that will thrill any age child. The lazy river is our favorite. Units range from one to four bedrooms and include full kitchen, washer. & dryer and tv in lining room and bedrooms. All utensils, cookware and dishes are provided. On site restaurants, close supermarkets, tennis and basketball courts add even more value. For golf ears there are multiple courses for the beginner to the seasoned player.

Room Tip: All locations have free wifi and all villages have about the same accommodations. You will not be di...

We stayed here for our week long Disney trip and it was fantastic. We had a 2 bedroom suite with full kitchen and it was very clean and updated. No maid service the entire week unless you spent an additional $70/day for clean towels which I thought was ridiculous, we had our own washer and dryer, they didn't even take the garbage out, but everything else was perfect,location is approx. 10 mins drive to the parks, 15 to Universal or SeaWorld and plenty of shopping and restaurants. Gated community so you have to show your pass to get in, first thing I did when we got to our room was unplug our phones in the rooms, they do hound you very bad here about time shares so we just never answered the calls haha. Would definatly stay again here,

I have owned here for 12 years now and still love this place we have 2 weeks every October but normally go every other year due to the wife spending so much money in the shopping malls lol. We own in east village and have great views across the golf course and can sit and watch the fireworks from our enclosed in balcony on the 3rd floor at night. Yes the time share sales meeting drags on and although you get discounts I have not been to it on my last 2 visits in fairness it just winds me up and ruins my day so I no longer go. People moan about the laundry as I said this is timeshare you clean up make you're beds yourselves that is the reason you get apartments with cookers and fridges in it is like home from home if you want to not do this then don't go to a timeshare place simple !!! The pools and grounds are great loads to do day and night we love playing golf here. You have great supermarkets down the road and restaurants so if you want to keep spending down and save a few inches on you're waistline then eat in a few nights. So all in all this is a great place just don't expect hotel services and remember this is Orlando there will be bugs about you're living on swampland as long as you don't get a gator in you're room then stop whinging
