We've just returned from 2wks in Orlando & stayed at the Best Western Lakeside in Kissimmee (Jan. 2011) . We enjoyed our stay as it was not too busy and provided an ideal location for the main theme parks (supported by a reliable free shuttle bus service to all the key parks). I'd strongly recommend Discovery Cove - the best water park by far.
Hotel was also good for local restuarants & supermarkets (located on Highway 192).
If you love Seafood (at reasonable prices with excellent service) would recommend the Red Lobster opposite. Food at the Hurricane Bar (in the hotel) was good plus the buffet breakfast offered every morning. All hotel staff v. helpful & polite. Good daily room service. The 3 swimming pools were clean & warm. Our lakeside bedroom was abit noisy (due to interconnecting doors). Please beware of one 'pushy' male ticket agent offering discounts in return for attendance at a timeshare seminar - just say no as it was a complete waste of a morning.More
