“Wow”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

My wife and I recently went to Orlando and spent a week at Westgate Resort and what an awesome place it is. It is 1 mile from Disney. We had a the 1 bedroom suite but it sleeps 4 with a full kitchen, family room dining room and balcony complete with table, chairs and a lounger. Would have paid well over $150 a night at any comparable hotel. CHECK IT OUT.

Room Tip: We did not use the room service but if it is like the hotel it will be excellent. We stayed on the 6...

Although my family and I only stayed overnight; we wish we had booked this resort for our entire stay. We had a great nights' sleep. The place was clean and had everything you'd need. It was very family friendly. Our check out time was extended because we arrived at such a late hour and the most important thing was the hotel released the holding fee immediately after our check out. The staff was very professional. We'd definitely stay again. Thanks for some positive memories.

My family and I have stayed in Disney resorts over 30 times! This is the WORST place we ever stayed! First clue was...no security check in! We drove right in, very strange we had to pass another place and go to the back to reach this one. Our room faced an ugly parking lot, when we opened the sliders to the patio, the smell was horrible! We were told the smell was due to a methane gas valve. The gas detector kept going on and off all night long. At about 11:00 p.m, several cars pulled up with many teenagers, they were carrying huka pipes and alcohol. They checked in all around us. People were coming and going over 50 kids!!! They were disruptive, loud, cursing, peeing in the parking lot, smoking right next to our room, we called security and they didn't take care of the problem. The security said " They are not listening to me" I could not believe this nightmare!! We kept calling and said you need to call the police! Our daughter was terrified and wanted us to leave, but we didn't know where we could go at 2:00 in the morning. The police finally came, 3 cruisers around 4:00 a. m. .We looked out the parking lot more than 10 cars filled with kids were exited the premises. I cannot believe 5 rooms were rented to underage kids for drinking and partying. Even more unbelievable was that it took over 4 hours for the resort to do anything about it! Do yourself a favor, NEVER stay at this place it is not a vacation you would want to remember. I will never stay at a Westgate property again for the rest of my life!!!

Room Tip: No rooms would be good!

We regret that your visit with us was disrupted during your first night stay. We thought we had resolved the issue to your liking and made amends based on the feedback we received from several follow ups with a member from your party throughout the week. However, it is now apparent that we failed in that regard and for that we are truly sorry. We hope the additional gesture we extended to you and your future visit with us will give us the opportunity to provide the exceptionally customer service we are accustomed to giving and that you will have an exceptional vacation experience.
I would like to respond to your concerns with an explanation and personal apology. We did not have a methane gas issue on site, the smell you are referring to was not gas related. Instead the odor was from the County facilities on the property next door. We apologize that this disrupted your stay, and we are happy to report that the County rectified the problem. Please note that we do not rent to under aged children. Unfortunately, the adults who rented the suites invited unregistered guests to their suites. For an issue like this we have to rely on the police to trespass these guests. Although this was our first such incident, our security officer should have expedited the process in a more timely and informative manner, and for that we are truly sorry. We followed with the security officer and have implemented measures to prevent an occurrence.

This "resort" is perfectly and centrally located from all atractions in Orlando. The place is very quiet but the apartments need some serious entire renewal. The carpets are so dirty that all of us got allergies. We asked for towels and blankets and they were brought to our apartment in few minutes.The people at the lobby are very friendly and helpful as well.
The thing I really enjoyed was the jacuzzi very relaxing and with perfect temperature. The bad thing, the security comes every night at 10pm and close the whole pool aera.

My husband, cousin, her husband, and our combined 4 kids ( 2 who are under 2) and myself stayed for two nights and had a great time! The room was nice and clean. Spaced out perfectly! I loved the screened in patio! Saved many trips down stairs to get a thrown item! You know how toddlers are! :) the game room and pool area were really great as well! We went to disney 1 day and the next went to the outlet stores. Was really close to everything. Can't wait to go back.

I read the reviews of this hotel when we booked, but decided to book anyway and now I don't understand why they received them. The only compliants that we have, my wife, did not like the smell of the reclaimated water irraigation system and not being able to make our rooms cooler, but other than that, the stay was very pleasant. We plan to make this location our place to stay on our next visit to Orlando. Some reviews compained about the check in process, but we were allowed to check in early and it went very smoothly. There was not any pressure to buy a timeshare at this location, in fact, there wasn't any menton of this what so ever.
