I have stayed at Star Island a few times in the past couple of years. I basically go down a couple times each winter/early Spring for Cheerleading competitions at the Wide World of Sports, and this resort has been perfect for us. We get the small A side since it has always just been me with one of my children. I agree that the decor is outdated, but I sort of expect a little cheesiness in Florida!
Last month I stayed for four nights with my 6 yr old son and he had a blast. He loved the pool and the arcade and just liked walking around the property. We weren't there much between going to Disney parks and competitions but it was really great for us. One night we were so tired that we just went back to the resort and ordered pizzas and salads delivered. We didn't get to do any of the activities at the pool, etc although I would love to sometime.
We have never had any troubles with our rooms at all. I do wish there was maid service, but we just try to keep it as neat as we can, so it's no big deal.
I am going in two weeks with my teenage daughter and we are planning to spend all non-compeititon time by the pool, and also to make use of the spa. So I guess the next trip will be the real test.
The only thing I hate is the sales calls and pressure. I hate it. But I just tell them I will be busy with competitions and do not have time for any of their meetings. This last time they put on the pressure but I just ignored them
