First I wish our room was as clean as the lobby! We stayed here 5 nights and the furniture tops looked like they were last dusted back when Walt invisioned building Disney World. Though the bathroom and kitchen were clean; housekeeping seemed to have a problem with general dusting, and floor sweeping. The beds were extremely comfortable but then everyone has a mattress preference. The bi fold doors on our closet all most came crashing down as the metal supporting track was shot, I just folded it up and leaned it to one side. Also one tv remote did not work.

We did not try their restaurant but we noticed very little activity there. The pool area was nice.

One thing that happened was the fire alarm going off close to midnight. They claimed it was a false alarm but there was smoke on our floor. This place seems to cater to high school and college age groups. I would not recommend staying here otherwise. Typical loud noise and running in the hall ways during the late evening. If you are mid age, and want to re experience your dorm college days well this is the place to stay. Other wise look else where!

We certainly appreciate your recent stay and apologize for any disturbance you experienced. Items like a fire alarm going off are extremely unfortunate, but regrettably not 100% preventable and our interest is always in your safety, even at midnight.

It is true that we do host several teams throughout the year, however our most frequent quests are family vacationers staying anywhere from 1 to 2 weeks and the hotel is usually very quiet throughout the evenings. Most any groups we do have we provide additional watched security for as well and so disturbances like you experienced are not very common, however we do again apologize sincerely.

We will also love to address your concerns with maintenance.

And we wish you had tried our restaurant. Our new chef is trying to some great new menu options, and don't forget we will be completing a full update this year to both expand it and offer a great new theme.

We hope to see you back to show you a great experience at Lake Eve.

We were here for 6 nights to enjoy time at Disney World and then off to a Disney cruise.
The front desk was great in recommending a ground floor room. I wouldn't have thought about it but thank goodness. It seemed like there were multiple school groups that were staying in the resort so it's good that we didn't have to deal with any silliness.

I followed the advice of one poster here and actually brought my own toilet paper b/c I was worried my little girl would complain about it hurting her. The toilet paper was fine. I've had worse at other hotels. BUT the one thing that I hope that Lake Eve does change is the provided shampoo and conditioner. They are HORRIBLE. This is coming from a guy! It's really bad and my wife and little girl agrees.

Overall a pretty good stay. There was some noises coming from the bathroom ... maybe pipes and condensation? We closed the bathroom doors and could sleep peacefully.
if we are staying long term in the Disney area, we'd definitely keep Lake Eve as an option.

Unfortunately we were very disappointed in our overall experience with our stay at this hotel. From the moment we arrived to check in to our departure. Upon check in the young girl was quite standoffish and half way through our check in procedure she literally walked away and ask another person behind the counter to finish the check in. We spent the first evening washing all the glasses, cups, plates, silverware and coffee machine as they were all put away in the cupboard dirty. For the four nights we spent there we had to ask daily for fresh towels and for someone to clean the room. The room was never cleaned throughout our entire stay and this was even after we addressed this situation with the manager. I have never had such an experience at any hotel/resort I have stayed at and I travel frequently for both business and pleasure. Needless to say I will most definetly not stay at Lake Eve again!

We do thank you for your recent stay but I am very sorry to hear that your experience was not what you expected. I'm not sure if I recall your check in specifically, but I did want to let you know that we are working very hard to bring on several new team members and if there was any confusion over the particulars of your reservation at check in, I do apologize, but we do like to have somebody on hand as you experienced to make sure we can answer any questions.

We will also address your housekeeping concerns with our entire team. We are growing our team in that department as well to make sure we are providing the excellent service we expect to provide.

If you have the opportunity to contact me directly, I would be very pleased to speak with you to make sure we are addressing any concerns you may have.

I enjoyed my stay at Lake Eve Resort. The condo-style resort was beautiful, everything look brand-new, and the view was fantastic. Our family went to Orlando for a family trip to see the sites and visit the theme parks, we didn't plan to stay at the resort much, but we didn't even want to leave the resort because we had just as much fun there with the view of the pool and the lake. We had everything we needed, there was no problem gettin extra towels or thing like that. Staff was courteous and helpful. The location was wonderful. We would definately stay here again, and again, and again...

Lake Eve Resort is a very nice place to stay. My original plans were to stay three days, it was so nice I extended my stay to six days. The location is wonderful, the resort is clean and the staff is very helpful. Overlooking the lake can't be beat. With the help of staff I was able to attend all my planned events without a vehicle. The resort is highly recommended.

Room Tip: Every room has a view of the large pool and lake. You will not be disappointed if you stay at this...

This resort is beautiful and less than 2 miles from Sea World. We stayed in a 2 bedroom suite and it was huge! It had 2 bathrooms and a full kitchen as well. The pool is large so no worry about it being overtaken with too many people. We enjoyed the walkout dock that overlooks the lake too. Overall it was a very good resort at a good price. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because the air conditioning made a loud knocking sound that kept me up all night.

We stayed in a 2bdr 2bath apt - good closets, a nice kitchen and living room and a small balcony with an awesome lake view (low floor, column 01). Daily maids service, nice closets, clean, flat screen TV in the living and in the bedrooms with a decent selection of channels but no premium channels. Dishes, glasses and silverware for 4 (should/could be more). Good location: close to Seaworld, and shops. Seems to be a preferred spot for Brazilians. I would not hesitate to go back to it.

Room Tip: Pick Column 01 if you can ...end of the hallway- more quiet and better view
