Champions World Resort

Reviewed 31 March 2010

just returned from our stay at champions world resort. Stayed there for 4 nights. The 3 pools were great my kids loved them. The volleyball and basketball courts were nice. The room had a musty smell at first, we went and bought some candles and took care of that. If you want towels and wash cloths get them in pm for the next day cause the next morning they wont have any clean. For the price our stay was good. Front desk people could be taught some manners but other wise would return again.

I stayed at the Champions resort from March 27-29, 2010. I stayed in a Deluxe poolside room with my husband & one of our friends visiting from NY. We also booked another couple from Daytona & then our friends brother. The rooms were clean and we had no problems. When we needed extra towels they were brought right up. We were meeting old coworkers from NY at Downtown Disney. We couldn't use the shuttles because we planned to be back late. The 2.00 Maragaritas in the lounge weren't the greatest. That would be my only complaints. But for the price (we used the last minute Kissimmee rates) you cannot beat the value. We are thinking of setting up a reunion for next year using this resort.

Stayed at this hotel in June '08. We had a problem with the safe not working in our room but once reported to the check in desk, we were offered another room which we gladly accepted. The rooms are very basic but saying that we only used our room to sleep in as we were out in the parks all day (which are only a short 10 min drive away). It looks like this hotel has had a "make over" since I went in '08. I would recommend this hotel.....

After reading some of the reviews on this hotel before we travelled had me very worried.
On arriving at the hotel the receptionist check in was speedy and friendly. We went to our room to find it clean very clean fresh bedding and I checked thoroughly! Hot water so hot you could have almost burnt yourself (so all the moans about hot water not being hot is utter rubbish). The pools were clean and well maintained. The breakfast was great Jose in the breakfast area was helpul and friendly at breakfast. Reception staff also went the extra mile to help. On one occassion we messed up our safe, on ringing reception they told me a guy from maintenence would be at our room soon, within minutes hed arrived and fixed it. The gentleman in the bar at the evening was most friendly and charming and the food great. The shuttle to Disney ran on time and as scheduled, also the same with the shopping mall shuttle. The grounds around the hotel were lovely and again well maintained. Each day on our return to our room after the parks, the rooms had been cleaned fresh towels and bedding and to our amazement more than often the maid had even tidied up!!!!!
This hotel is similar to a Travellodge here in UK but better and cleaner.
All l have left to say is this hotel is Fantasic and I cant wait to come back Thank you so much to all its lovely staff for helping in making a great holiday for myself husband and two small children. THANK YOU !

I've stayed at the hotel twice over the past few months. The latest being in Feb. Overall I think the hotel is a bargain for the price. Compared to similarly priced hotels in the area, it is much better. The location is on the quieter side of 192, but only a few min from the Disney Maingate. The Pool area looks nice and inviting. The hotel is great for middle class family and friends looking for a decent place to stay, close to Disney without breaking the bank. The staff seemed helpful enough, and the rooms while outdated were fairly clean. The hotel could use a renovation, but it isn't something out of this world. The Beds are firms, and you have a microwave, fridge, and coffeemaker in the room.
Honestly my Biggest complaint, is the Wi-Fi. This day in age, its a big deal. The property is on a quite sizeable lot, but it seems it lacks the range to effectively service the hotel. It was hard getting connected, and slow when connected. These are issues that could be fixed with a couple hundred bucks, so I assume they'll take care of it soon enough.
Overall, if you're looking to stay close to Disney, without breaking the bank, this is your place. Just don't go in expecting a resort, and you'll be fine.

The hotel is located nearby to Disney. As of hotel room amenities, there was microwave, safe, television. I didn't like the AC, but that's ok I guess for the price I paid. Over all good, would stay again

We saw this place online for cheep so we decided to stay for $32 a night we thought great deal. Not a great place at all we arrived late and checked in then they wanted us to talk to the frount person so we did. Spent 1hr with him he told us that we can get a free breakfast if we went through a time share which he said was not one. They had free shuttles to Disney. We were told that the shuttle only pickes pick up in magic kingdom and that we had to be back by 925 at night in order to get picked up and they ended up going to epcot any way and they were late . the shower did not have cold water and the beds felt like you were sleeping on rocks. and we could here the family next to us the walls werenot proof. It was not what it looked on the net
