“Don't leave early and bad location”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

Located just two blocks from an Osceola County prison with literally dozens of bails bonds locations nearby, this place had issues. We booked these accommodations online through one of the large services at a good price. As it turned out, the event we were attending in the area ended a day earlier, we requested to checkout early and were told by front desk "no problem". We packed our belongings went to officially check out and lo and behold they said no refunds, that we'd have to get refund through online company. Long story short, no refund for checking out early. Never had such an issue with any other hotel/resort in our lives. Built in the mid 80s, the rooms were updated slightly, old carpeting, lock on sliding door didn't work (a bit of a concern because of the adjacent area). There must be at least 6 or so abandoned hotels down the street with vagrants all around. Not a good family environment. This explains why they have a guard post (but only at night). Good price and perfect location if you attend the nearby Osceola County Stadium. But overall experience was poor including the non-refundable night. Wouldn't consider again. We prefer safer, more customer-friendly accommodations.

This was a great surprise in our Florida stay. I am a Wyndham member and booked this as a Last Call stay through RCI. Since this was the only thing available when I booked it I was worried that it would be a run down location. I was pleasantly surprised. It is a private area with a guard post at the entrance that really gives you a secure feeling. The there were 2 pools that had different depths and a wading pool with a mushroom curtain of water in the center. They offer a calendar of social events that they host on location. The rooms was perfect for a family of 5. It had 2 private rooms, a loft area with a fold out sofa bed, and the sofa in the living room also could fold out. Each room that you could sleep in had its own TV. Some websites show that this place is an hour away from theme parks, but its more like 30 minutes. The front desk has directions to several local stores and restaurants printed and ready upon request.

Room Tip: When booking your room ask for one that over looks the lake.

We, 8 stayed here for a week in October, 2012 and we had a great time. The place is close to so many attractions and so many restaurants around. This place has a big pool and a big hot tub, tennis and basketball courses. We would come back soon.

We had a sporting event a few miles from Kissimmee and luckily found this gem of a hotel. Two bedrooms, two living areas, large kitchen, dining room, washer/dryer, dishes, pots and pans, silverware - everything you needed to enjoy your stay. Very nice people and very good service. It was very hot on Saturday and we brought a bunch of the kids over to get out of the sun and cool down. Plenty of room for 10-15 kids to stretch out, eat and drink a little, and relax between games. An excellent place.

We went to Disney a few years ago and paid $450 a night for a similar place on the grounds. For ~$80 per night I know where we will stay next time we are going to Disney or Universal

We just spent spring break down here and was very pleasantly surprised by this place. It is farther away from the Disney resorts and other popular areas but well worth the drive. If you take the toll roads to Disney you can avoid the horrible traffic on 192.

We have stayed in many different RCI properties and as far as space is concerned, this was by far the biggest unit we have ever had. Check in was a breeze, and they try to make you schedule a sales pitch meeting when getting your parking pass, but we declined.

We had a 2 bedroom standard unit. This place appears to be an older townhouse apartment complex that was converted into an RCI property and that's fine for us. The 2 bedroom unit was very large, with a full living room, bathroom and bedroom on the second floor for the kids to enjoy for themselves. All the needed amenities were there, microwave, washer/dryer, coffee maker, etc. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed. The entire unit was clean as well.

There were a couple minor maintenance issues but they were addressed quickly.

The pool area is adequate, nothing too big and fancy but more than enough for our kids to be entertained......hot tub, kids pool, playground.

The property is right next door to a large grocery store, which was great. We asked the front desk for some recommendations for popular local places to eat that are not chains and we're very pleased with the choices.

The place was great. We stayed with our daughter for 2 weeks in march 13. Our 2 bed villa had every thing we needed and every thing work fine. Ok they are a bit dated, but no problems. The staff were brilliant, any questions of minor snags were dealt with very quickly. The pools were clean and warm, all activities great. Wifi costs 25 dollars a week but works very well.

Recommend a stay here, very good value
