I booked this hotel sight unseen and then became very worried once I began to read the reviews.
Problems I read about:
Rude desk service
inadequate shuttle service
Laughable "free" breakfast
Hard pillows and beds
Taxi service in partnership with the hotel to cheat the customer.
Bogus resort fee
I don't know where these people were staying, but it could not have been the Baymont Inn and Suites in Celebration Florida. When I began to plan my Disney vacation I looked at the lower priced Disney resorts. Even with the attachment to the park and the provided transportation to and from, I could not justify the 100.00 plus price tag.
My room at the Baymont had a microwave and a fridge, the Disney resorts I looked at did not.
My room at the baymont offered a free breakfast plus in room coffee, the Disney resorts did not.
Was the Baymont new, no. But, it was spotlessly clean, the shuttles ran on time, were easy to use, and were more than adequate for my 5 day visit.
Taxi service? The one day that we did not use the shuttle, I had the desk call me a cab. it cost me 25.00 to get to the water park. I lost the driver's card who graciously offered to pick us up at the end of the day and had to call one of the local cab companies. Same trip back cost me 27.00.
Let's talk about breakfast. Donuts, muffins, toast,bagles, toaster waffles, cereal, juice and coffee. Did I have to wait for a toaster, yes, for like 5 minutes, but since I was saving 50.00 a day on my room, I considered it time well spent. Did I want the same breakfast every day? No, but there's a Macdonalds right across the street, and a number of other resturant choices within easy wakling distance.
Resort fee, yes. 5.00 per day per room. Did it go to pay for the "free" breakfast and the shuttle? Maybe. Who cares. I still saved 50.00 a day.
I have two things to say. I would stay here again, and I will mention it to any friends headed that way. For those offering all of those negative reviews--feel free to stay at a more expensive place with fewer amenities.
