Disappointment for a Holiday inn
Arrival was great and the stay was okay once We found where We were going. We drove past security the first time heading into the resort as We didn't know where to go and no one came out of the little guy to help us. Our room faced the pool so we dealt with load music later than we wanted but at least it didn't stay on past 11pm. We were informed that the 4 pools and hot tub were free with our stay but were given a bill for over $70 at Check out and told it was a fee for using the pool, which we used 3 times in the whole 8 days we were there. The sand by the tether ball and Swan boats smelled like cat litter due to all the cats running around. I would definitely stay at a regular hotel as it was cheaper and you are able to use the pool for free without hidden fees.

Best Resort in FL
Make sure to pay for condo near waterpark! Super convient and fun for the whole family!! Be prepared that they charge for tubes in lazy river, which is more like an adventure river because there is water falling on your head all over and no real time to relax on it. I loved our room and I'm kind of a hotel snob. We will be coming back next time we are in FL!

Great find, but need to be creative if you dont’t Drive
Loved the closeness to Disney World. Villas were well stocked and comfortable. Only downside is that the property is huge and very spread out. Be prepared to walk/wait for a shuttle if you don’t drive

Filthy showers and trash left outside our room
When we arrived on our Disney vacation we were so excited, until we got to our hotel room. There was a giant garbage bag full of dirty linens at our door surrounded by piles of trash, including beer cans and cigarette butts and banana peels all over the walkway to the door. As we entered our room (walking through trash to get there), I could hear all our feet sticking to the tile as had just tracked through who knows what. So we removed our shoes, but that didn't make me feel better. The showers had mold growing all over the inside of the door. I called the front desk. I was told someone would come look at the trash but no one would do anything until 8am. I thought I misunderstood, but no. By 8:45, when we left our room, the trash was still there. We left for the day. I received a voicemail saying they had re-cleaned the showers, but the mold was still there. I cleaned the kids shower with my own clorox wipes. No one answers my calls. I spoke with a woman from housekeeping once, but as we've already left, they don't care and forget getting any money back. Won't be back.

What a great place! We made a last minute plan to spend a night at the HI Club Vacations Resort as we were passing through Orlando. My family and I ended up with a 2 Bed, 2 Bath Villa with a gorgeous view of a golf course out back and a pond out front. The property is extremely well maintained, quiet, and beautiful. For bird lovers, you will enjoy seeing Great Blue Herons and a large number of Sandhill Cranes. The unit itself was clean, well laid out, and well stocked for a long term stay. We only stayed one night, but it was great to be able to spread out and play games on the dining room table. The beds and pillows were very comfortable and we all slept well. The amenities were incredible. We aren't golfers so I can't speak to that, but the pools! We stayed in the West portion which has its own great zero depth entry pool, arcade, etc. Our girls loved making a Build a Bear ($16) in the Kids Care area. We ventured over to the Lazy River area and enjoyed the 84 degree swim/float. We also tried the waterslides and rock climbing...all very fun! When our 5 year old boy became sad, Natania and Angel, two staff members, went out of their way to make sure he had an especially great experience and we were all very grateful. With employees like them, I'm confident that folks will enjoy this place. We hope to come back again when we can stay longer. Well done, Holiday Inn Club Vacations!

3rd stay, dissappointed this last stay.
I have stayed on this property before, this was my third stay, I like the restaurants on and off property. The pools are nice and the grounds are very nice and well kept. I was very disappointed in the room. Last year I purposely booked and paid for a 1 bedroom villa spa tub room. Well last year I went to my room and it was a corner room with a stall shower. I did not complain didn't have time on vacation. On 1/13/18 one year later, I purposely booked a 1 bedroom villa oversized spa tub and stated to front desk at the check in how I did not want a corner room and a booked a 1 bedroom villa with spa tub, the front desk reassured me my request was heard. We go to our assigned room and guess what it's a corner room with a Stall shower.(it's 9:30pm and I'm exhausted from traveling.), called desk services immediately and explained the situation and she is arguing with me that 1 bedroom villas don't have spa tubs, so I said well I have seen them in this hotel and they are advertising 1 bedroom villa on the website w/ a spa tub. Then I went on to explain I have a stall shower. She had nothing to say, not even an apology. Odd. Did not change rooms because I wasn't offered to and I did not have time to go to the front desk and argue on my priceless vacation.

Orange Lake Resort
Wonderful resort with lots to do, close proximity to Disney property. Staff was friendly, large rooms that were well cleaned and upscale amenities especially the bathrooms which was top notch with large walk in showers. We were in the two bedroom condo and stayed in an awesome location right by the tennis courts. Depending on view, can see fireworks from Magic Kingdom from your balcony.
