“Loved it!!!”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

My daughter and I stayed for 5 days and 4 nights and everything was perfect. I checked in an hour early and checked out an hour late without a problem, I only had to ask. Room was spotless and the beds were so comfortable we didn't ever want to get out of them, the pillows were the best too. We didn't need the room made up so I only had to ask one of the cleaning crew for towels and coffee, I received them with a smile. Had the pool to ourselves in the early morning. The room was safe and cozy. Will definetly be staying here again, forget the Hyatt!

Room Tip: ask for a garden/courtyard view

Stayed a couple of nights last night and found the hotel to be comfortable and close to the maingate of Disney. The hotel seems to have been recently renovated and featured a cool ac unit and a mini-fridge in the room. The hotel has two pools and only needs a jacuzzi to be a complete package. Plenty of restaurants and buffets nearby made dining an ease. No complaints. If you want a clean and comfortable hotel room without spending an arm and leg , the maingate is for you.

Room Tip: ground floor room and the eastside of the hotel.

Booked this because of other great reviews. And do you know what.... it's a nice place to stay. Lovely and clean with contemporary bathrooms and furniture.

If you are on a budget, yet want great facilities and staff (really lovely), then this is for you.

We moved purely because a) we love Lake Buena Vista area and managed to get a late deal at Wyndham Bonnet Creek and b) the area is more Blackpool than Southport (UK readers will know what I mean).

We sincerely appreciate your great comments on the hotel. And although disappointed, we understand how it feels to return to a place because you know it well. We are a new renovation, so we are still building that feeling with our guests. We get more and more every day who are telling us this is their new home in the Orlando area. I do hope you will keep us in mind if LBV books up in the future.

I arrived late at night with a reservation for another hotel with a similar name. Lory was so helpful at the Front Desk. She managed to reserve a room for the following night. I opted to stay at the other hotel so as not to incur a nights stay penalty. I returned the following day and checked in. Lory again was fast and efficient. The room was so nice, Much better than the one at the other hotel. Fully renovated within the last couple of months. The pool and the gardens were very nice and clean. Thanks for the great weekend. I will return to this hotel again.

Don't let the look of the hotel fool you. I did a late check in. The staff was very friendly. The room was very clean with a mini fridge and coffee maker. The only thing missing was microwave. I would surely return again.

We drove up and started laughing. It looks like you might get killed here. Never judge a book by its cover though. It's wonderful inside! Everything is updated, clean, and new. Parts of the lobby is still under construction but it doesn't affect anything. It's a sea/nautical theme and is beautiful. Someone is paying close attention to detail. The room was clean and newly remodeled. The beds were comfy and did I mention clean. ;-). We are pass holders to Disney and didn't want to shell out disney prices for their hotels. This was a GREAT find. Super close to the parks, 9 min to Epcot, 11 to Hollywood studios and 15 to Magic kingdom. The only bad thing was the check in process. It took forever. The person who does it was on a break and 2 other people were "trying" to help. They finally called her back to do it. In my opinion everyone should be trained, not just one person. Overall great stay for the price and location. We will be back!!

Thank you for the great comments on the rooms and your stay. This is actually a very good neighborhood and is going through a rebirth with the renovation of many of the old hotels like ours. I do apologize that you had to experience some of our growing pains as we are opening new rooms and training new employees. Please be assured we are getting better every day. I do hope you will come back soon to experience the new employees and the new amenities that we have to offer like our fitness center now opening.
