“Great !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012 via mobile

Arrived in the afternoon, given a 3rd floor unit, went back and asked for ground floor as one friend had bad knees, no problem. Units are extremely nice, clean, everything you could want for a trip. Great location. Loved the screen porch. Highly recommend.

Very very spacious. It has a king size bed, 2 singles, pull out sofa, dining table and card table, 3 tvs, two full bathrooms, nice well equipped kitchen and laundry.
It also has air con which was much needed even in October. We had 32degree days.

Close to all the parks and shopping outlets.
Friendly front of office staff.
Great bar men at the pool bar. Greg and Norm are delightful.
Nice pool too.

To get cheap ($538 less) tix for the 6 days of Disney parks, we are asked to go to a "brief breakfast" (At the Raddisson), which was to include a look at a unit and just filling out a few lines on a sheet. LIES. The time share rep came to breakfast with us (she was nice enough, but breakfast with a stranger....) then we had a look at the unit which is a 10 min walk or a 2 min drive, then the sales pitch came. Then you go back to the office at the Parkway and they try and talk you into the timeshare points. We weren't interested, so her boss came and put the hard word on and also reduced the price of the points dramatically. Still not interested, so got sent up another set of stairs to see another person. She then had the "ability" to reduce the price even further. We were NOT interested. When we were finally able to leave (1.5 hrs later) we thanked the rep and she very rudely waved us away and turned to speak on her mobile. Obviously not happy at not having made the sale. Anyhow, we got our discount and so wasted 2 hrs of breakfast with a stranger and sales pitch, but got $538 discount on tickets.

Room Tip: Choice of either a walk in bottom floor unit where you can hear when the people upstairs got to the...

... and that's about all. The location to Disney was wonderful! The Publix was nearby and the in suite kitchen was reasonably equipped. We did a lot of cooking in our unit. The bed was comfy and the bathroom was really pretty! The pool area looked great, with a neat little tiki bar, but honestly we didn't use it, we were to busy! Now for the cons: there is a sales pitch and we managed to dodge it, but not easily. The exterior of the units was not to my taste at all. I actually thought it was pretty ugly, all brown. My big gripe was that we could hear EVERYTHING that went on in the unit above us and outside the unit. The first two nights we had a spring break type group that would party in their unit in high heels at 11 pm everynight, and finally leave around midnight. Luckily they left after our second night, otherwise we would have asked to be moved. We didn't have noise issues for the rest of our stay, but the place was sparsely populated, so I would be very worried about this if I stayed here during the popular season.

So that's about it. I wouldn't stay here again, but apart from the one night when our neighbors kept me up forever, the place didn't negatively impact our vacation.

Dear “banjokate722,” thanks so much for sharing your vacation experience on Trip Advisor. Choosing a Resort or Hotel in the Orlando area can be daunting. The location, units themselves, level of service, and variety of amenities are vast indeed. One thing that you should expect from any of them, is a good night’s sleep. It sounds as though we were unable to deliver that for you on your first 2 nights. For this, I hope you can accept our apologies? As a family resort, we seldom receive complaints about late night partyers. In the event that noise is disrupting anyone’s sleep, action will be taken by our 24 hour Security team. The procedure is delivered in a quick and professional manner, and almost always resolves the situation. If not, the disruptive guests are asked to leave. We realize that this information doesn’t change the first 2 nights of your vacation, but please know how sorry we are. We are quite confident that should you choose Parkway in the future, you and your family would thoroughly enjoy your experience and sleep well. Thanks again "banjokate722.”

We just got back from our stay at Parkway! We had a great stay! Great location to Disney World and Universal Studios! We also loved being so close to many restaurants and a few stores where you can pick up groceries or personal items. We would suggest going to CVS or the Walgreens for most of your needs, don't bother driving to Walmart it's to far. We really enjoyed the pool area and the shuffle board game with the exception of people smoking. As far as the timeshare goes we just let them know upon arrival that we had a busy week and no extra time, they were great and didn't bother us at all for the rest of the week which was much appreciated! It was very nice after a long day at the parks to come back to a place that felt like home away from home. The only other thing we would note mentioning were the ants in the kitchen. Other than that we had a great stay and will definately visit again! Thanks to the staff for making our stay such a great experience!

Ok, not the best but very nice. A lot of great people to make u smile an enjoy your time away while on vacation..

This having to have your remark be over 200 words is very stupid an all you are going to get is negative remarks if you ask for anything more than what I wanted to say in the first place.. Now you have your 200 words..

After looking for months for a place to stay in orlando i finally opt for the parkway and i glad we did cause it a great little place, the apartments were huge you could easliy sleep six people in it,there were six of us but my sister and boyfriend had there own apartment. Each apartment has two bedrooms full kitchen with washer dryer and there was plenty of space for my two kids to run around in when it was to hot to play by the pool, for us it was a great location cause it was close to all the major parks and attractions, only minor niggle bad wifi signal also not free but they refund us the money cause most of the time could not get on the internet also maybe the rooms looked a little dated maybe could do with a little update but nothing major where it would spoil your stay there.
If and when we return to orlando it would have a really really great place for us not to return to the Parkway.

This was our first stay at the Parkway, we did as much research as possible and thought that the Parkway sounded to good to be true luckily it wasn't, this is our fourth visit to Orlando in six years and has grown from me, my daughter and husband with one grandchild to the same adults with now three grandchildren and has been the best location so far, as with all the other reviews it is a excellent location for all the main attractions, some of the comments regarding the Parkway were not to be found on our visit, lack of bin bags,toilet rolls etc all is required is to contact recption and they will supply you with these(mostly oversupply) rooms are cleaned and re supplied on tuesdays and who ever did the job whilst we were there even made a decorative feature of the fluffy snake may grandaughter had won at Hollywood studios, the pool is a good size but as we were there out of main season may be a little busier during main season but we were not there for the pool ! hot tub was great for relaxing those muscles strained by carring grandchildren, smoking seems to be allowed around the pool if ashtrays on the tables is correct, non freebie wifi could be a pain but does have the advantage of a good excuse not to have contact with work. Best place so far to have stayed in Orlando and will be going back. Lastly had no contact what with any form or timeshare rep could be that we arrived, stayed, was out every day and slept then did it all again !

Room Tip: Dispite other reviews we chose to be close to the pool good move, open the back door short walk and...
