“Stay away from Wyndham”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Went to check in and our name was not on manager's computer. We had a confirmation with our name on it but since our name was not on the computer, the manager would not let us check in. We had to wait until the third party showed up, even though we offered to give the manager a credit card with our name on it. The excuse was this was a third party reservation and our names were not on his computer. The room was guaranteed and prepaid. Buyer beware how you make your reservations at a Wyndham. If this party never showed up, we would never be allowed to check in. Manager did nothing to help us and we sat in the hot sun for 2 1/2 hrs while the third party showed up. BEWARE OF MAKING THIRD PARTY RESERVATIONS AT WYNDHAM. Customer service was no help either. I will never stay there again. Be prepared to be embarrased by staff. BUYER BEWARE.

Stayed February 2013, traveled with family

This is the second time we have stayed here. They are excellent innkeepers. We love this place. Clean, well kept, great for families, excellent value. Even a game room and pool table for kids. Breakfast is included. We didn't partake but they have complimentary happy hour. About mid way between Disney and Sea World in a quiet area. Many Near by restaurants. I hope they keep updating the building because this is a super place.

Room Tip: not by the elevator, but over looking the pool

We have just returned from our 4th stay at these lovely suites. The staff were as friendly and helpful as ever, particularly Bernard on reception and Eduardo and Marie on breakfast. The suite, corridors, lifts and all public areas were clean and fresh. Breakfast was superb for free, the porridge is delicious. The position of these suites is so good, you can get about quickly and easily and if you don't have a car the half hourly bus 50 is good and reliable. You could walk to 27 different eateries, if you can walk for a mile or about 15 minutes. We will be back next year, hopefully.

Late Review:- we stayed here in August 2010 for 9 days. we stayed at this location and we were not disappointed. The rooms are a little dated but clean and well maintained. The breakfast has a good variety and the staff is very friendly. The location is excellent, close to Disney, shopping, etc. The room cost in very affordable. Overall though the stay was very pleasant & staff were very helpful & wifi connection was good & was free.

This is the fifth time that we stayed at this location and we are never disapointed. The rooms are a little dated but clean and well maintained. The breakfast has a good variety and the staff is very friendly. The location is excellent, close to Disney, shopping, etc. The room cost in very affordable. It does puzzel me that they now charge a nominal fee for your second bag of coffee for your in room coffee maker. This is the first time that I have encountered this. Overall though the stay was very pleasant.

Location is great. Premium Outlets and Disney Down Town are just 5 mins away.
Rooms are a bit weary but clean and comfortable. It was also nice to see, that hotel had improved their breakfast selection to more of a real continental breakfast, and styrox plates were switched to real ones. Good job!
Chlorine sensitive people do not bother trying the hot tub.
