“Wow... Very bad experience do not go there.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012 via mobile

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. Ok... So we switched rooms. The second room it was given to us it wasnt that smelly but my friend was very skeptical.... So we stripped the bed and looked at some stains in the mattress so we went running... The lady wanted to show us another room but no no no... We wanted OUT!!... (didnt even trow a pic in the f@#%! giant gator)

This hotel has older furnishings on the inside, but the real problem was the creepy old man/owner who kept hanging around the window and even used the master key to open the door when my girlfriend and I were in bed. We checked out after that.

This is one of the nicest and most welcoming places we have ever been to. The super nice owners make you feel like home!
The hotel is very clean and has everything you need! It is very conveniently located and very close to all major attractions in the area!
Will stay here again for sure during our next visit to Orlando!

Every year since 1997 we stay at The Gator. Friendly owners, clean rooms and cheap prices. We are a family with twin boys from The Netherlands. We send a lot of friends and family to the Gator and the all liked it. Its close to the Disney Parks and a Supercenter Wal Mart. There are lots of attractions on Highway 192. One of them is Old Town. Our holidays starts at The Gator Motel.

This vacation we did stay in the Gator motel again.
We enjoyed the place as usual. Rooms are complete, service is good, staff and management friendly and wifi is stable and fast.
For us a place to come back again.

This motel has wonderful owners that were helpful and trying to make sure that we got the best deal on things we wanted to do. nothing was to much bother.

The room was cleaned everday but pretty basic but for the price we could not complain.

There is a bus stop right outside the motel for going both ways and for the 9 days we stayed there we used nothing but public transport. The bus that goes by takes you straight to disneyworld where there you transfer to other Disney transport to get to the other parks. It took us about half an hour trip to get in. A Walmart superstore was only about 5 minute walk from the motel with plenty of restaurants around

The thing we liked best about this motel was the friendly owners, the price and the great location for buses.

We would totally recommend this place if you are looking for budget travel. and it even has a pool.
