The rooms were clean and welcoming. Everything you practically needed was there.If an item wasn;t there, all you had to do was call and they brought it to you quickly. Tje staff was friendly. The resort had so many nice things to do you did not have to go off the resort to have fun. My eight year old an ten year old loved it. I would recommend this resort to all my family and friends. I will be back next year.

Stayed a week in 1 Bed apartment good size rooms has two bathrooms which was good,all the pools are heated and well maintained,close to Disney and other areas,had issue with microwave but was sorted quite quickly.
You do get offered time share when you book in and is a bit annoying and long when you have come off a 10 hour flight from U.K and just want to get in your room so that's one minus also the main downside for us was the Wi.Fi which was not free anywhere in hotel and cost $40 got the week which you could have got back if you attended the dreaded time share presentation I think its very dated and short sighted not to have free Wi-fi in a hotel somewhere at least even if it was in the lobby especially as 99% of hotels in the States and Europe provide it free of charge even Macdonalds gives you free Wi-Fi
Overall a nice place to stay but if you rely on Wi-fi for business or just social purposes or just getting information about parks etc it might be better to stay elsewhere so you don't get charged.

I had stayed at this particular West Gate resort several times over the past year as we are Disney Premium annual passholders. I enjoy having the full kitchen for meals with the kids and having a washer and dryer in the room makes it much easier for week or longer trips especially when visiting the water parks. We have never had any real issues besides a refrigerator not working one time but we were credited back some of our stay due to loss of items from not being cold. The rooms and bathrooms are large and having two bathrooms works well when you have a few adults in a room together. The location is great right near a Walgreens, Publix, Winn Dixie and a Super Target. There are also several restaurants in the area.

Westgate Towers is a great place to stay if you're planning to visit the Disney theme parks, as they're just 10 minutes' drive away. The hotel is not in the most picturesque of areas, but there's a Sizzler on-site, Ponderosa is next door, and there's a Golden Corral buffet and numerous tacky gift shops within walking distance.

Our room was well-equipped with a TV, microwave, dishwasher, toaster, fridge, freezer, washing machine and iron. Many of the rooms are also timeshares and some of the hotel services were chargeable for non-owners. For example, Wi-Fi was charged at $9.99 per night, which I consider to be quite excessive. This was not made particularly clear in the paperwork we were given upon checking in. The pool and jacuzzi both appeared to be well-maintained and we usually had both to ourselves.

Our stay at Westgate Towers was mostly positive. The staff were generally polite and helpful. The toaster in our room was broken and a replacement was brought up to our room within minutes. However, the maid service was fairly lacklustre; the beds were made, bins were emptied and towels were replaced on a daily basis, but the cleaning during our stay fell below my expectations. Also, somewhat bizarrely, the toilet paper was not replenished at all during our time there. In fact, when we eventually ran out, we called the front desk to ask for some more, but it never materialised. Similarly, there was a coffee maker in the room, but we were only provided with coffee for the first night. Again, I would usually take it as given that these items would be replaced on a daily basis.

We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. We are in a convenient location to a lot of venues, so everything is easily accessible. We are happy that our staff was able to assist you with your needs and took care of any issues you had. We are a timeshare resort so certain services do run a little differently than at regular hotels. We hope that you will come back to stay with us again now that you have discovered how convenient our location is.
Sincerely,
Lucía

This hotel was fairly nice. The beds were comfy, the location is great (close to Disney and the other parks as well as restaurants) I really enjoyed the jacuzzi tub, spacious shower and the screened in patio that overlooked the pool. I did not have neighbors in the rooms beside me so I did not have to deal with the thin walls. However, I could hear someone whone was apparently drunk singing loudly in the hallway. That was funny. The staff in the Towers were nice placed me and my family in the wrong room but offered to help us relocate and gave us a free pizza voucher for our troubles. I wasn't too fond of the pizza joint that is located on the same property as the Town Center. I was going to return to this hotel but my timeshare experience with the staff at the Town Center was less than pleasant so I won't be returning. If you do stay here just be mindful of the presentation.

The hotel seems to be also a timeshare- though I was not approached to purchase anything. The hotel is older in decor but clean and serviceable. The beds were very comfortable and there was a hot tub in the room ... Add in a small kitchenette and you are in good shape.
