We stay at a variety of hotels, from Ritz Carlton to Hampton Inn, and we found the Wyndham to be a pleasant experience. For those who expect a 5-star experience, DO THE RESEARCH! This is actually rated as a 3-diamond not 5, by AAA. The 5 is, I believe, a self-evaluation. If you realize this, you won't be disappointed by the Wyndham.
If you seek someplace close (15 min. or less) to Disney, with a golf course and much more space than a hotel room, and if you are fairly independent/unlikely to need frequent hotel staff services, this is probably a good option.
Our 2-bedroom unit on the 3rd floor in Bldg. 22 had ample space for 4 adults, was very clean and well-maintained, and had all the kitchen supplies we needed for simple breakfasts and lunches. If you are expecting to turn out elaborate meals 3 times a day, why are you going on vacation? Also, don't expect enormous pools--if that's why you came to Orlando, don't stay at a GOLF resort. For those who don't feel like walking 5-15 min. to get to pools or golf course, shuttles are quick. I don't know what this is like for those with kids, but I would imagine it's more enjoyable than being crammed into a small hotel room.
We sat in on the time-share presentation to get a good rate, and our sales rep was low-pressure. We've done this once before in Orlando, where the 90 min. turned into 200 min., so the Wyndham experience was not bad by comparison. (I think time shares are a ludicrous scam, by the way.)
I will say, they did try to reschedule our reservation, which angered us, but we absolutely refused to be bumped, and after a couple of tense phone calls, we got it worked out.
Also, don't fool around using the phone or other services that add charges to your bill, and you'll be able to do an express check-out. Local and 800 number calls DO get charged. Check out time is early--10 am-- but they let us stay until 11.
Frankly, after reading other reviews, I was very nervous about the Wyndham, but I was actually quite pleased by it. We may do this at Xmas if we can get another good rate.
