Booked a 2 Bedroom with King and 2 queens with request for near pool and XRC facilities. Instead, 2nd bedroom had 2 regular beds and we had to drive to get to a pool or an exercise facility. Definitely would not ever stay in the West Villages of Holiday Inn Orange Lake Resort. There were many phone calls to ask you to purchase property and the focus […] was for owners not for renters.

"Great hotel with a lot to do"
What a beautiful place to stay! My husband and I, along with our two teenage boys loved staying here and can't wait to go back! The staff was very friendly and helpful. I would recommend it to anyone!!Genuine Expedia guest review
IT'S A Timeshare when you arrive at checking they try to sell you splash passes to use the putt putt the tubes for the lazy river and a hippo slide they tell me the pass for my family of 3 adults and 3 children will be $329 dollars but if I take the orientation and stay a minimum of 90 minutes they will give me the passes for $75 dollars so to save […] some money we did it was long and they are persistent and super annoying all the activities are not free they charge for everything the jet ski is $100 and hour this place it's and oversize apartment complex you can't not just park and enjoy the pool you have to drive all the time wich my husband hate it!

The resort is beautiful and it offer several activities. Overall, the kids and I had a blast!! Two dumbs up!!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Plenty to do at the resort"
overall pretty awesome except for very slow service at the Tradewinds Restaurants on River Island. took an hour and a half for lunch and with 3 kids that's no small fete. The waitress messed up and sent our food to another table. No apology was made by the manager and no discount given, which would've been nice. Otherwise everything was perfect!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I always like staying at your place . It really works for our stay in orlando for numerous things . Room is always awesome . The only thing I dont care for is the harassing I get from the people at check in . I understand they have a job to do getting people to those meetings . But if you say no . It s no . Was very frustrating trying to get out of […] the lobby . I have a set agenda when I come and not much extra time , plus I wont to relax when Im not running . I dont need someone adding to my list of things to do . offer . if I say no . please leave it at that . I dont want your 100.00 dollars or credits . if you want to thank me for staying at your place twice a year just give me a discount coupon that dont expire , for my next stay . That would be nice . Other than that . Im sure we will be back . great place . Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

This is our second stay at this hotel and we love it. The rooms are great but the amenities are spectacular. The is so much to do that you never have to leave the complex.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"very nice accomodations"
We had previously stayed at the Summer Bay resort and this was much nicer. We had a 2 bedroom villa on the 3rd floor. It as very nice, came with some complimentary laundry soap, dishwasher soap, coffee, etc. which was nice as we arrived at midnight. The screened in large deck was wonderful on these units connecting both the living room and bedroom. […] very clean. The complex is huge and offers many options for pools, golf, and other options. Our daughter and friend has a poolside massage which they enjoyed. We will stay here again next year when we visit again for our daughter's college teams softball games.

"Nice Place to Stay"
We enjoyed our stay at the Holiday Inn Club Vacations at Orange Lake Resort. However, we did not realize that the lazy river was not included when we did the booking. Hence, we did not get a chance to enjoy any of those activities. This fact should be noted before people book rooms because of the extra costs associated with it. Other than that, the […] place was really nice. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Place was great, would stay again. Service slow at Legends or Legacy Restaurant. Arrived at driving range at 5:54. We were told it closed at 6:00 so could not use the range even though someone else was using it. Someone was let on after us. Confusing!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not worth the money"
We stayed in the 2br villa on the golf course, and i must admit we were disappointed in the cleanness of the room. There was a lot of carpet!!! I can not believe they would have carpet in a rental unit. On site dining was a bad ideal.... you know it was bad when they comp'ed the whole party of 7.( drinks and all ) The pool area's are nice, but just […] busting at the seams. We stay a various resorts in the area a couple of times a year and this one ranks at the bottom of my list. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We will probably not stay at this hotel again. Too many great places to stay besides this resort. We were told our room was not ready upon checking in at 3:30pm, no problem as check in isn't available until 4pm. We were given out keys and they took our phone number to call when the room was ready. With a 4 yr old and 2 yr old in the car, 4:00pm came […] then 4:30, finally at 5:00pm we just went to the room. The carpet was obviously not vacuumed and there were linens in the living room entertainment center. We decided to go on in & get settled, expecting someone to show up & finish the cleaning. No one ever showed up, I vacuumed myself, all the cleaning equipment was in the closet by the washer & dryer. I guess after staying at the Sheraton Vistana Villages Resort Villas numerous times we have been spoiled, for the additional $30-$40/night we will just stick with them. Overall an ok stay, just can't compare to Sheraton Resort. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"close to all must-see sights"
Hotel is a time-share, they try to haggle you in to buying their time-shares.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We loved our room, it was perfect! The whirlpool tub in the master was an unexpected treat! Our teenage girls loved the selection of pool and beach activities. We are already planning our return next year.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good location for Disney and Universal"
If you like large busy resorts and being harassed by aggressive salesmen then this is the perfect place for you. The minute after you checking in you will discover someone waiting behind you to "guide" you to a sales area where you are pressurized into taking a tour with the promise of free passes. My advice stand your ground and refuse unless you are […] really serious about buying a timeshare which they tell you is not a timeshare! We took the tour as we were thinking of buying property at some point in Florida, however the salesmen are sharks with absolutely no conscience. We listened to the sales pitch for an hour and a half and then said we were not interested in this kind of ownership. At that point the sales guy began to get upset and a little nasty. He then brought in another of his crook colleagues to increase the pressure. We stood our ground and again said we were not interested. It was obvious that there were many others being pressured too. In the end we got up and departed, we unplugged the phones in our room to stop any calls too. I did not sign up to this when I booked this resort and would have gone elsewhere if I had known. On the plus side we had a great holiday and did not let this spoil it. On principal I would not go to this resort again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Room was GREAT! Timeshare is pushed on you though"
Its very big and spacious. Staff is nice and helpful but you are kinda pressured to do a timeshare presentation for free intensives (ours being free water park tickets.) But overall it was VERY nice we enjoyed it allot and will be going back to stay again!Genuine Expedia guest review
"our stay at orange lake"
We got into Orange Lake on a Monday mid afternoon. Check in took a lot longer than I would have liked. I asked about an upgrade and it seemed to take an eternity(15 min ) my kids became restless. I felt after that I wasn't going to be hassled by "the Holiday Inn Club" to take a time share tour. I was not willing to invest my time to see a property in […] which I was already staying in. I felt harassed by the club after that and then the calls I received in the room. The room wasn't as well equipped as the previous Villas I have stayed in there. The pools and waterpark were fine. I was surprised at the cost of the Lazy river and HIppo water slide. cost was 39.95/person for 3 days Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Best Hotel stay our family has had in Orlando."
You don't even have to leave the resort to have a great time. Great service, clean rooms and awesome amenities. Will stay here again. The only CON was the we felt rushed for checkout by cleaning services, before due time. I will Definetly be recommending.Genuine Expedia guest review
Overall, we had a great experience @ this resort. It was beautiful, the pools & palm trees were a sight to see. The only downfall was the staff who tried to sell us a time share, they wouldn't take no for an answer. We wasted 6 hours of our day listening to them. They weren't very honest with us!Genuine Expedia guest review
I am very picky about where I stay...I like amenities and I like to feel like I'm staying somewhere safe, comfortable and enjoyable. I usually read a million reviews before deciding so I know how important it is to be accurate on reviews. Orange Lake was fantastic. You can see where there are some places that need some maintenance, but even with certain […] parts appearing a little outdated it was a beautiful resort. It was in an awesome location (so many restaurants, stores, etc. right around the corner) where you didn't feel like you were totally in a tourist trap; and so close to just about anything. We went to Magic Kingdom one day, Epcot another, Downtown Disney, the Boardwalk, Universal Studios, Downtown Orlando and the port and everything was very easy and convenient to get to. The resort had soooo many things to do, see and be a part of. The resort is huge, but there's a shuttle service to get to all the different places if you want. We went golfing on Legends Walk course one day and that was great! The golf courses are beautiful. There is the pitch when you first check in but I wouldn't call it pushy at all. We actually enjoyed talking to them and did the presentation to take advantage of deals. We also liked this resort so much that we ended up becoming an owner with the Vacation club. We had a wonderful experience here and I would recommend it to anyone and everyone. You won't regret booking here at all...promise. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Really nice property with lots of activities. A great location if you are visiting Disney World or want to do outlet shopping. We had a two bedroom unit that was very comfortable. Our only issue was the mattress in the master bedroom. Inevitably, during the course of the night you ended rolling into the middle of the bed. Not a deal breaker but some […] updating of the bedding would be great. Looking forward to another stay there. Enjoyable! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Absolutely Awesome Time"
We had a wonderful time. So much to do at the hotel itself (golf, basketball, swimming,ect). Our hotel room was amazing wasn't expecting it to be so big and the view we had from the windows was nice. Absolutely one of the best hotel stay I have ever had in Orlando hands down.Genuine Expedia guest review
Stayed in River Island 2 BR Villa. Looked new. Great staff when we needed them and we did a good job of avoiding the time share pitch. Weather was great and the pool areas awesome.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Next to Disney World"
Great experience although our ceiling fan made too much noise to use and was not told about The Riverside Island Grilling Company no longer serving breakfast (after we got there, waited, and called the operator). They will try to sell you Time Share and charge a $30 fee if you don't go but staff is very nice and you get lots of perks if you attend the […] 120 min ordeal. Location is great and next to tons of places to eat, parking can be tough on the weekends but overall pleasant stay! Rooms quiet and clean, staff is awesome! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Very clean and nice hotel."
I had a great experience at this hotel. The lazy river, the hot tub(jacuzzi ), and the staff at the bar was great. I will visit this hotel resort again and recommend to family and friends!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Stayed for Gatorland"
We have stayed several times here and will come back again. The rooms are clean and nice the grounds are very nice. The location is what brings us back over and over again.Genuine Expedia guest review
Experience at this hotel was great. The property is huge with many things to do from golfing, tennis, lazy river, many different pools, etc. It is centrally located to all the Disney Parks and other attractions. Many restaurants nearby on HWY 192. You do need a car to get around.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very nice accomodations"
This was a family trip to Disney and Universal Studios. The resort was very close to Disney (under 10 mins.) and about 25 mins. to Universal. We stayed in a 2 bedroom villa which had 2 spacious bathrooms and the rest of the rooms were spacious, clean and nicely decorated as well. Comfortable beds and the full kitchen had everything to cook if needed. […] They had a convenience market onsite as well as being only 5 mins. from a supermarket. We didn't check out the pools or water ride as February weather was cool and we didn't leave extra time away from parks. Would definitely consider this resort in the future.

"Located in basement with A C units."
Beautiful Country Club Resort with beautiful grounds! Our expedia room was located on the 1st floor, that seemed more like a basement in the Club House. Window faced the A C units outside that we heard all night. I really wished we had stayed somewhere else.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good family resort. Avoid the 'tour'."
Just back from a week in the East Village, a two bed apt on the 5th floor, very clean, well appointed, if a little dated (not a problem), overlooking a golf course and the fireworks at Magic Kingdom. We experienced the River Island pool complex and the amenities there and all were excellent and the staff polite and efficient. The location could not […] be better - parks, shopping, restaurants etc. I would recommend this resort to anyone in a heartbeat, subject to the following; Decide before you go if you are potentially interested in timeshare and do your own research before you travel. If you are not interested do not be ushered towards the sales desk behind and to the left of check in. You will be tempted by vouchers to take a 'tour' the following morning at 8am, they will take a deposit of $30 to make sure you show up. The 'tour' will last 3 hours, you will be shown the very best apartment they have, shown an enthusiastic video, and at the very end, given the 'bottom line'. You will not be shown a full contract or given any time to think it over before being asked to sign up. If you say no the 1st person, another will come to make sure you mean it, then a 3rd person will test your resolve further. I find it ridiculous that they expect you to commit to thousands of $$ on the spot, without any pause for consideration. Tip to salespeople - if you'd have given me a few days to ponder, I may well have been a 'yes'. The lady who presented to us was delightful by the way. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Last Minute Booking"
My family and parents needed a place to stay while waiting out a snow storm up north. We booked this resort on Expedia. As soon as we arrived we were pleasantly surprised. The resort is beautiful. The accommodations were clean and comfortable. Highly recommend this resort if you are traveling with children and other family members.Genuine Expedia guest review
"great place for families or couples"
we loved staying here. It was nice and relaxing to get away and have everything we needed right there on site. It rained the whole time we were there so we didn't get to enjoy the pools like we wanted but it wasn't crowded at all so it was a good place to hang out by the pool or on the hammock. The only thing was that it's such a huge resort that you […] have to drive or take the shuttle to get to other sections. We stayed in the newest part, river island, and it was nice. I loved not feeling crowded! also it was close enough to Disney world that I felt good being there but not overwhelmed. definitely recommend. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"excellent fun family vacation"
We stayed at Orange Lake resort in January into February and had a wonderful time. The grounds are beautiful and the staff was very helpful.

"Good hotel, very comfortable"
Good accommodations, very comfortable rooms, spacious. Somewhat dated furnishings but nonetheless good. Didn't have time to enjoy the pools this time, but from previous visits the pools are great. Staff very friendly. We were on a party of 13, and asked to be arranged in nearby rooms which they did. Not cheap also not very expensive, I would say a […] good price/value ratio.

"pretty nice resort for family vaction."
It seems that this resort is rather a time-share condo than a hotel. There was no room-cleaning service as other hotels do generally. I was told that for the service $35.00 is charged per day. I think this system should be improved.Genuine Expedia guest review
The rooms are very nice, its close to Disney and lots to do with the kids, pools, mini golf and kid friendly restaurantsGenuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful resort with endless fun for the family!"
