My husband and I were planning a trip to Disney for 6 nights. We are from Fort Lauderdale and It is only about three hours to get there. We even payed extra money in the hotel to be on the "disney" side so that we can see the fireworks from our balcony. When we checked in, I asked if there was a fridge in the room. We were told that it would be an extra $10.00 a night. REALLY....finally the manager comped a refridgerator. When we walked into the room I have to say it was not we expected. Dark and very adverage. We walked out on the patio(I was unable to open the sliding glass door because the track was all rusted. My husband finally got it open and the view of Epcot and Magic Kingdom fireworks at night was nice. This night is was 46 degrees outside. To people from Ft. Lauderdale we were freezing. We attempted to turn heat on and it would not work. Next morning we mentioned this to the people at the front desk and when we got back to the room, it was a sauna. Back downstairs and spoke with the manager. Are you ready for this....."IT IS AN OLD AC SYSTEM AND YOU NEED TO CHOOSE IF YOU WANT HEAT OR A/C. HE WENT ON SAYING THAT EACH TIME WE WANT TO CHANGE SETTINGS, HE WILL SEND SOMEONE UP TO THE ROOM TO SWITCH THE VALVE FROM HOT TO COLD, OR COLD TO HOT. Is this not 2013? It was late by this time so the heat stayed on in the room and the sliding glass door open to circulate some cold air. The next morning before we went to breakfast, the door to the closet came off the track and almost hit me.(save your money..the hotel restaurant was also terrible). That was it. I called the travel agent and insisted that he gets us out of there. By early afternoon we checked out and were moved to another wonderful clean and beautiful hotel. I will never look at a BEST Western hotel again.
