“Spacious, good location, but missing some basics”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

The rooms are large and well equipped. There are several swimming pools. The location is convenient to Disney attractions, but there's no shuttle, so you will have to pay the $15 parking fee every day. It was outrageous that there was no WiFi in the rooms and you had to pay an optional charge of $26 in order to get it. (There was WiFi access in the lobby.) To say the elevator in the 1000 building was unattractive is an understatement. The hours at the business and fitness centers need to be expanded. The equipment at the fitness center needs to be updated!

On arrival we got told we were only allowed 3 devices for the wifi and we had to pay extra for these which was not shown on the website. On our entire stay the wifi was very temperamental, we hardly got any internet so we might as well have not paid for it! The beds were very uncomfortable, we were given a double bed and a sofa bed for four people. The double bed was on a tilt so your feet were higher than your head, and the sofa bed was okay but sleep quality wasn't great on it!
It's a good distance from Disneyland where we went everyday, and there were 3 big pools near the apartments which were good and clean. To get new towels you had to bag them up yourself on a certain day so the staff could change them for you. Was an overall okay stay but wouldn't stay here again.

Our family stayted at silver lake resort for one week. Pool and grounds were meticulous and condo was clean and comfortable. some of the furniture was dated and some mattresses needed to be replaced but overall stay was comfortable for the value we received. Attractions and restaurants are very close and nearby. The condo was nicely decorated and spacious for our family of seven. Master bathroom and bedroom was spacious.

Room Tip: rooms away from pool are quieter and higher floors are nice for views

We were in unit 10108 and had both the A and B sides. The units are huge and nicely decorated. In the middle of the living area there is a large shag red area rug. Both this rug and the bedrooms had obviously not been vacuumed. It was so gross. I didn't want my 21 month old walking around on the carpets. There is no vacuum in the room so I phoned for one. About 30 minutes later an old beat up vacuum was brought and I told the gentlemen I would do it myself. I went around the entire place but noticed it didn't pick up too well. When I looked inside to my surprise there was no bag!! So now I had just blown around all kinds of dust and germs all over the place. I called again and after another 30 minutes was brought a newer bagless vacuum. I couldn't believe the amount of stuff I picked up! Obviously the cleaning people DIDN'T vacuum the unit prior to our arrival. Location is nice, there are lots of restaurants and shopping close by. The parks are a short drive away. Pools are large with lots of seating. There seems to be several activities going on and a game room for the kids. The gym equipment is old. We didn't do the sales tour so can not speak about that. People are giving timeshares away nowadays so we tend to buy resale.

I stayed at the Silver Lake Resort for 3 weeks and just loved it! It's just 2 miles from Disney World and very close to Universal Studio's which are my favorites. The resort has a very large pool with activities going on and great music or you can choose the smaller pool for a quite experience. The staff is great and very helpful. Only down side is they could clean the rooms a little better.

We went down with the kids and they loved it. The rooms and pool are excellent. It is close to resaurants mini golf and Disney of course. It is a time share so be prepared to spend a couple off hours there but it is worth it.

Room Tip: No room service but I couldn't remove it. I would recommend over starting the number off people...

Stayed here for a full week, loved the property!! Its about a 20min drive to Universal Studios and multiple other parks close by. Check-in was fast, efficient and friendly! The unit was very clean, nicely furnished and super comfortable. Could not have been more pleased!
