"Feels like home"
What a great resort, clean beautiful would definitely stay again and have!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Love the ammenities ! My kids have a blast."
We stayed for a short vacation and we enjoyed only one full day at the hotel but was awesome!. We loved the River Island ammenities: food, pool, attractions, activities. The only thing that I do not like is the required bad moment in each resort that you go when you have to said 10000 times that you do not want to do the Resort tour, but I think that […] having a grumpy baby this time helped to be just 10 times "No, I am not interested, thanks".... ;) We will come back to this hotel for sure Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"This place is enourmous, the suites are big!"
Had a great time with two young kids (3.5 yrs and 10 months). Stayed only two days, but could have stayed a whole week and had a great time. Great kiddie pool area. My only reservation about the facility is that it is so big we had to drive from one section to another. They do offer a shuttle service though, so if you are travelling with less baggage […] that is very convenient. Also, we tried to get something to eat upon arrival (about 10:30pm) and the good on-site restaurants were closed. Thank goodness there are nearby restaurants that deliver! There are tons of family friendly restaurants in the area including a nearby Cracker Barrel and Lonestar Steakhouse. There are also a ton of things to do in the resort itself, so that will save you some $$$ if travelling with kids. Our room was a "Sleeps 8" room but you can easily fit 10-15 without people in that room without bumping into each other. Private balcony was cool, but we didn't use it. Stay here if you want a place that feels like home away from home! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We stayed one night in a two bedroom with family and two nights in a one-bedroom. Both rooms were clean. You only get Housekeeping if you stay seven nights or longer. Both rooms had a washer and dryer. Both rooms had a full kitchen with all necessities included. The hotel is a cash only hotel so bring cash and don't expect to be able to pay for much […] with a credit card. There is sometimes a really bad smell around the hotel, the service personnel said it was coming from animal kingdom. The hotel was beautiful but I would not stay again only because they nickel and dime you on everything. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Things they don't tell you."
The property was very pretty and very close to numerous restaurants and all of the Disney parks. However, here are the things that they do not tell you. You will have to wash the towels in your room every day, but you will only get detergent for 2 days. Actually, if we had not called and gotten a few extra, we would not have had enough for one day. […] There were only 4 of us staying in the room, but it was suppose to be able to accomodate up to 5-7 people. Also, they do not include the resort fee in the rate. They will charge you extra when you check in. Yes, the pools are really nice, but if you plan on using the lazy river, that is extra also. The on site restaurants are way over priced and the food is sub par. The character breakfast....well, there are characters, but their costumes are nasty. Based on my experience staying at other properties in the area, do not stay here. You will be much happier staying somewhere else. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"So So Second time"
This was my second stay at Orange Lake, primarily because of the value and the 2 bedroom villa. The major turn off is the heavy push for time share purchase. There is also a large fee for use of the mini golf, inflatable slide and tubes for lazy river, and if you do not attend the sales pitch meeting the cost can be enormous (275$ for a family of 5), […] if you do attend they still charge you something. This fee is ridiculous and insulting!!!! I will not be going back. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
One of the best hotel I'd stayed. It's very accessible to everything, shopping malls just a walking distance from the hotel. If we Visit Florida again, we definitely stay in holiday inn orange lake.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Cars spray painted staff no help"
3 cars spray painted side mirrors broken tires slashed in parking lot. Hotel management did nothing, provided no held, no security cameras in parking lot. This is a gated resort only cameras at front gate. Every time I talked to management got a different security manager, cars vandalized 2nd night of stay never heard from management for the next 5 […] days, only contact was by me.

"Very nice all inclusive resort."
This place is great if you have kids or just want to get away. With a water park, golf, tennis etc. It has everything you could possibly need for a pleasing vacation. With that said If they get you to sign up for the time share tour be prepared for an all out assault in the three different stages. It can be a bit overwhelming If you have never toured […] a time share before. They don't like to take no for an answer and can be very persuasive during the sales presentation. They do offer a decent package but a bit over priced. I would suggest staying at this property to anyone but stay away from the time share portion unless they ofder to comp most of your stay.

"Beautiful place! Lots to do!"
Wonderful accomodations. Many activities to take part in. Family friendly. Well maintained and taken care of. Friendly staff. Beautiful pools. Enjoyed mini golfing. Kids loved the arcade. Would definitely stay there again!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice close to the Disney parks"
Everything was nice my kids loved it. They loves the pools and the lazy river especially the slides that they have and I love the star bucks coffe and the happy hour and my husband loved that the gym was really big and very close to our room..Genuine Expedia guest review
Just be aware this is a "time share" facility and you will be approached about touring the facility. If you need Disney park tickets etc i would wait and the staff can arrange that.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Nice Villa But... Needs Updating!!!"
I enjoyed our stay in the 2 bedroom villa but unfortunately when I booked I thought we were staying in an updated villa. If you see the pictures online they are of the updated condos in the River Village, our villa was in the North Village and the bathrooms and kitchen were in need of a major update. It was like you were in the 80's with the bathroom […] and the kitchen. Overall our stay was comfortable for 6 people and we did enjoy the lazy river pool and the location of the resort. I would stay here again just next time I would make sure to request to stay in the River Village. Also, be aware of the sales people after your check in they want you to do a tour of the facility for a time share and they try to sweeten the deal by giving you a free ticket to one of the parks. We did not do it because we were only there for the weekend and did not want to waste any time hearing a sales pitch. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This place was just jaw-dropping. Very luxury, clean and fresh villa. Lotsa places to walk around and explore. Ammenities fees were unbelievable - so cheap for such an awesome place. The only bad part was check-in time in line.... It was overboard long, but the staff was very very friendly and worked to customer satisfaction on all aspects. I will definately […] stick to this resort for my future trips. Please ignore their Time Share offers - they are NOT worth it... Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Great place to stay with lots to do within the resort complex. Easy drive to Disney World and Sea World along with other parks.Genuine Expedia guest review
"2nd time there, loved it as much as first time,"
This was our 2nd year in a row, loved it all over again. Lazy River was our very favorite. 3 bedroom condo on east side overlooking golf course (and Animal Kingdom in the distance) was great too. We did have one afternoon that we smelled the animals but it wasn't "horrible". The condo was very spacious, king bed in one room with a great jacuzzi tub, […] 2nd room with a queen and another private bath, sitting area in room, 3rd bedroom with 2 queens and a hall bathroom. Decent size kitchen, and living room, good size screened in porch with view of golf course. Full size washer/dryer. Shuttles were available, which we used when we had car trouble and had to have our car towed to dealer. Time share issues weren't an issue, we said "no" at check in, although they did snake us around to another line to give us our "gift" we said "no" again. Then we did what a previous guest suggested and unplugged the phone at our condo. We gave our home number at check in and time share problems didn't happen. People will find minor problems if they are looking for it. We had one afternoon the elevator didn't work, it was repaired, one minor maintenance issue, we called, it was handled. Overall, vacation is what you make of it, we had an awesome time, loved the condo, loved loved loved the lazy river, weather was great, we will be back next year.

I was very disappointed with the staff of Orange Lake first off took almost an hour just to check and after you waited through a maze of lines you are taken over to a time share sales team and they try and pressure you into buying one. I declined the offer and was then treated to a smug faced have a nice day. I finally made my way from front office […] back to our room (3 miles) and our key did now work. I called the office and was put through to security department and they could not open door as well. In the middle of trying to help us the officer was called away and promised to return asap but 3 hours later we are still not in room and not one staff member including multiple calls to management never said sorry. I asked for a manager to call me and the only response was a form letter in which the promised to take care of us on our next stay. Fat chance Orange Lake I will never step foot on your property again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Family vacation 2013"
The resort was great. Plenty for the kids and for us grown folks to do. My only complaint was the mattress on one of the Queen beds and in the sofa....poor condition. And when i called their solution was to send us a thin pad. If I return I would definitely request that ALL mattress be in good-well condition. Mattress condition is very important when […] vacationing. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
First and most importantly, there is NO HOUSEKEEPING!! (Unless you stay more than 10 days). We are a family of 5 and we stayed for 6 nights. After the first day, i kept waiting for fresh towels and when i called, I was told that we would not get any more towels. I was told that if we wanted fresh towels, we would have to wash them ourselves. The room […] was ok but smelled old. Second, it is a time-share property. After the check-in process which was easy, we were escorted over to the salesman. He was obnoxious and pushy! I declined the offer for the 90 minute presentation. The property itself was very nice for the kids. The pools are nice. But they charge $10 per person for mini-golf! The only good thing is the location. We were 10 minutes from Disney. With all the choices for accommodations in Orlando, I definitely would not recommend this hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very nice surprise"
This was a last minute trip and this hotel was recommended by a friend, our first impression is that the complex is huge! There is enough to explore Inside that you would want to stay in the hotel a couple of days. The cabanas are a little dated but very clean, really nice hotel and we are planning on staying there again.Genuine Expedia guest review

Awesome amt of space for price! Everything u need w full kitchen and complimentary kitchen essentials. Lacked enough hot water..we were only 3 adult 2kids...last adultin usually ran out of water. Also could Hv done without the resort trying so hard to take two hrs of our 3.5 day stay just to try to sell me a timeshare...but overall this is the place […] to stay.

"Great for kids!!"
Overall great time the only problem was there is no daily maid service so if you're expecting to leave it to the maid it's not going to happen. The resort grounds offer a swimming paradise for the kids though. Bounce castle,arcade,and mini golf. Food at the resort is actually better than what you would find off resort grounds.

After reading many reviews I was nervous to stay here...Don't believe the haters...I am not sure why they wrote the reviews they did... 14 of us arrived at orange lake and found the staff to be very friendly...I was quite surprised after the reviews I read..After checking in we did not go over to the desk where they were trying to talk you into going […] on a tour. We own else where and knew we wouldn't buy ..No one bothered us ..Not sure why the reviews were saying they were being hounded to go on a tour....Our rooms were ready at 4 pm...so we went out to eat and came back for our keys... The villas were spacious and very clean...No bugs like people were saying...They were equipped with everything you could think of...like being at home...I was very impressed with that.. We didn't want housekeeping so that was not a problem. We did our own laundry and it was great to have a washer and dryer. I honestly was very impressed with the villas...I stayed in west village..We had our own pool right across the street from us...Sometimes we would go to river island but we were really happy with our own pool. The grounds were immaculate.The resort is huge....Lots to do..I would definitely stay there again. Everyone was very friendly and helpful...I think the people selling timeshare could get a little overbearing if you let them...We did not. Do not buy the activity package not worth it.. We were 5 min from Disney parks and 20 min from universal..That was awesome..nothing bad to say...sorry Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Very happy, it's the perfect place to meet up with family and stay together in one unit. The pools and Lazy River, restaurants and bars are all very good. We will definitely go back in the future!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice rooms, nice pools, very fun for kids, but the volume of people there makes it hard for them to give high quality service. The day we arrived, they had 750 check-ins, and we waited 1 hour on line to get registered for our room. Also, they are selling time shares, so the room rentals are not necessarily their priority. The lazy river is nice, but […] you have to rent an inner tube to float there - you can't bring your own. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"fun for the whole family"
The resort was great. The lazy river, the pools, the bars, the room, it was all A+. The only thing I would warn people of is they get you to do a tour to buy their version of time share and it's about an 1 1/2 hours long. That part was not so great. I had to talk to 3 people before I was finally released. They were nice people but it was tiring telling […] them no. So, if you do book be ware.... Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful comfortable place to stay"
Staff was very helpful and pleasant. Rooms were very comfortable and decorated nicely. Didn't have one complaint about the place it's self. Grounds were kept immaculately manicured. Pools were clean and well taken care of. The only problem we did have is other guests who did not watch after the kids in the pool areas. I know that is nothing the hotel […] had control of however.

"Large resort with anything you could possibly need"
Our experience was not the best unfortunately. Upon check in, we were blind sided by a $250.00 mandatory deposit that we were not aware of. The reason given is because it is a cashless resort, and they put the $250.00 on your room key so you can use it throughout the resort. I refused to pay the deposit and then in the end of check in they told us we […] would have to use our credit or debit card on the resort. We were aware of the $8.95 a day resort fee. I called the resort before booking our room and asked about fees, was told about the $8.95 and that the was a tube rental for the lazy river, well they never said it was and additional $9.00 per day per tube if you want the wristband for the lazy river and miniature golf it is $28.95 per person per day. When booking we were promised a room in the River Island, as we were traveling with my family which includes 2 teenagers, well they don't honor those promises. We were in a villa furthest away from River Island. The front desk told us to call in the morning and maybe we could move, well that didn't happen. We got in our room at 9:30pm so I didn't really pay much attention to the cleanliness, the next morning I was relaxing before our time share tour and noticed popcorn in the living room, our family didn't have popcorn the night before so that tells you how much they cleaned. Later in the week we lost a ring and was looking for it and found pita chips under the loveseat, I was disgusted!!!! Needless to say we won't be back!!!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Unhelpful, disappointing, damp and musty"
Hotel was ok; pictures on web made it look and sound much newer and fresher than it actually was. Room was very damp, either due to leaking fridge or recent carpet cleaning, but should not have been rented in the condition it was. Most disappointing was hotel staffs refusal to allow a late checkout; room wasn't available until 4PM and checkout is 10:00AM, […] so not a good place unless you really are just looking to sleep and get on over to Disney.

We had 3 villas booked, they kept us 3 blocks apart! Ok, we can live with that... the listing says breakfast included, its not, this we cannot live with it, we have kids and mornings are supposed to be hectic as is, we dont want to go out for breakfast - so if you offer it, honor it! Check out at 10Am is impossible at disney, everybody is tired and […] we usually wake up at 10am during vacation! How can hotel expect us to be out by 10Am? Well we were because they were sending people over every 5 minutes to check on us, they wouldn't grant a late check out probably because we declined the timeshare presentation, but stil... we paid a very good money for that, so i don't understand the lack of customer service.

"Very Nice Hotel + Horrible Service = Unhappy"
Don't waste your money - go somewhere else! The hotel looks fine, is new and clean - but you have the same quality hotel in orlando, with same or better prices and with better service. They are a timeshare, so if you decline the presentation they give you a hard time. Check out @ 10Am is absurd and unreal for Disney/Orlando/Vacation. It says breakfast […] included, but its not... its a shame. 1 Hour for check in? So much potential but horrible. They won't see us anymore and if you want a peaceful, nice vacation stay away.

"Could and should be the best hotel.... but..."
Frustrating! Hotel is AMAZING, rooms are great, the villa thing is awesome, but service and customer service are HORRIBLE: 1)Listing says breakfast included, its not - to me is horrible, with a bunch of kids, we hate going out for breakfast, so I thought we were ok, but no... its not included. 2)Check out at 10AM? ON DISNEY? Apparently they don't know […] how hectic mornings are when you are on a family vacation. This is ABSURD, I wish I saw that before, but they wont catch me again. How can we check out so early in the morning, and why? Noon is good for everyone and they wont give you a late check out, even if you beg (like I did), so because I called before, they made sure to send me a very nice person (not) to make sure I would be out by 10Am. What a shame. --- For the same price or even less you can have a very nice room, with breakfast and check out at noon, so you are not stressing during your family vacation. Check out took a little over 1 hour and they were begging us to go to the timeshare presentation, since I declined they made sure I was there regretting every minute of it. Won't stay again, and I would not recommend. If this could be changed, the hotel would be a LOT better. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We were pleasently surprised. Alot of room and it was just like we were at home. only better. We would definitely stay here again. There were appliances I don't even have at home. Make sure you shop at Target, it is the most cost effective grocery in the area. They are also in the process of building a Dollar store next to Target. The negative is we […] could have ignored Disney for most of the time and stayed right here. This is close to Disney, Universal and Seaworld. A great choice! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"More then I expected!"
I was scared before I got there because I read previous reviews and didnt know what to expect when we arrived there. To my surprise it was very nice and clean. The pool was very nice also! The hotel did charge me 53.00 extra for use of the pool and you have to pay extra to use the slides and lazy river and putt putt.

Had a wonderful time with a (extended) family of 8. Two bedroom villa was awesome, plenty of room, could live there if need be! Was never approached about a timeshare option, then again, we didn't check in until late at night - maybe that was the key. Ammenities were spectacular, pool side staff was great, everyone had a really good time. We had so […] much fun, my family has decided to make this an annual event! 15 minutes from Disney. Had to drive from our villa to any of the pools (not within walking distance), but everything you need is poolside, so no reason to have to run back to the room anyway.

"Not worth the price"
Our room was horrible! We had a one bedroom. It was cold and so damp the towels wouldn't dry. Everyday we had to use cold wet towels to dry off after showering. The drain in the tub wouldn't stay open. The handle on the toilet would stick, if we didn't pull it back up, the toilet would run all night long. The sleeper sofas mattress was very thin and […] uneven. Sheets for both sleeper sofa and bed had black marks all over them. When you walk into the room, you walked right into the bedroom. All night we were awaken by hall noise. No natural light. The only window we had looked into in the actual building. You couldn't tell if it was 10am or 10pm. We stayed three nights and on two different occasions two different pools on the property closed for 1 to 1 1/2 hours due to unscheduled cleaning. Two to three times a day someone would call to try to get you to join in their time share. I cant believe they give this type of room to anyone then want them to buy a time share in this place.

The staff was very helpful and courteous.
