“Good place for family vacation next to Disney”
Reviewed January 14, 2014

July 2013 stayed at Parkway for the sixth time. Parkway is like coming home for us as we first stayed there over 10 years ago and always found it to be great value. The units are all 3 storey townhouse multi units with full kitchens, dining and living rooms with 2 bedrooms and a pull out. There's also a washer/dryer combination in the kitchen along with a dishwasher. The size of the unit is about 900 square feet with 2 full bathrooms. All the conveniences of home with a balcony off the master bedroom and easy access to the pool. It is showing its age and could use an update but the value can`t be beat.
You are literally next to the entrance to Disney off of 192 and I4 with door-to-front gate travel time of 10 minutes for most of the Disney parks. The staff are always helpful and friendly; no real pressure from the timeshare reps once you say no to their offer to sit down.
There are natural gas barbeques for your use and we would come back from the parks mid-afternoon for a steak or burgers, cool off in the pool and head back for an evening in the park. Great location and family friendly. We've been to Orlando many times and stayed at Disney resorts 3 times-which was great but value with location is at Parkway.

Room Tip: Ask for a unit that is poolside for easy access to small playground, pool and bbq. r

The resort is ideally located close to Disney and excellent restaurants. The pool area and trails are great fun especially for children. We found that the maintaince of the suite was lacking. The telephone was non-functioning and staff never repaired it. Also, the tv cabinet door was broken,the hook to hold drapes was pulled from the wall. The staff was not the friendliest that we have experienced elsewhere. Overall we enjoyed our stay but would like to see management take a greater interest in staff training.

Wonderful week. I requested a quiet unit and was granted with no problem, I would say that is the best room in the whole resort (E301). backdoor to the pool area and trail. Pool is great. I enjoyed the trail (the end is a little mall with supermarket, gift shop, restaurants, and ice cream). Room was clean and laundry facility made my stay easy. A easy drive to Disney, restaurants, and all major highways. It is a wonderful hideout in busy December. The only small drawback is the ease to contact front desk. I need to call more than once to talk to front desk. I may not go back to that area again but would recommend it.

Wonderful relaxing week...requested 2 bedroom on bottom floor ..honored with no problems. Enjoyed the "backdoor" to the pool area. Great location to all parks if that is your thing. We made a day trip to Kennedy Space Center.45 minutes away. Resort is a few steps away from the Arabian Nights show but that is closing this week. Room was clean and tidy. Enjoyed in room laundry. Yes, this resort is surrounding by several modern facilities so it makes this one seem out dated. Overall it is a safe small resort..one our family enjoyed.

Room Tip: wifi is available for a fee which was waived when we completed our resort survey

Location is convenient and the layout of the property is good but some maintenance on the units is badly needed. Our unit had a very old carpet, door handles that did not turn easily, florescent light bulbs in the bathroom that took a minute to warm up to provide adequate light, broken shelves in the refrigerator, a shower knob that was broken, a lamp that had the light holding on by the wires only, a rear for that jammed. Get the idea. I'm glad I'm not an owner, just a guest for a week. This is the second Diamond Resort we have stayed in and this was the better of the two. Check the annual report to find out where the maintenance money is going because it isn't going into maintenance.

We had a one week tansfer time share at Parkway International Resort. The staff was friendly and helpful. We got a first floor 2 bedroom condo away from the pool. It was clean and very spacious. Great for our 4 adults and one child. Big King in the master, jetted tub, second bedroom with two twin beds. Great location near restaurants and shopping and super close to the parks. The unit is a little older and could use some updating, but everything worked well and was functional. Maintenance responded quickly to problems with our tv remote. My only complaint is that the rooms are really quite dark and could use more lighting, and the pull out couch was not very comfortable for sitting or sleeping and ought to be replaced. We did have them try to give us a free meal in exchange for the time share pitch, but we politely declined and there was no problem. We would definitely stay here again, especially in a 2 bedroom unit.

Room Tip: Two bedroom a little away from the pool as it can be noisy right next to the pool area.

This hotel was quite dated and needs a vast update.The brown exterior is downright depressing.
The African motif is old and worn.
The staff is helpful but only included the people working the front desk.
Housekeeping during the mid week clean up was 5 minutes and gone.
I'm sure this could be transformed in the right hands
