I just got back from Orlando - spent 8 nights at the Rodeway Inn Maingate in Kissimmee and have to say I was pleasantly surprised by the hotel. The rate per night was just under $50 so you never really know what to expect. We arrived late on Friday night and the hotel desk staff was processing 2 other guests in front of me. The check in process went very quickly, the staff was very friendly and I was out in about 7 minutes (good considering 2 guests in front of me). The room was a good size with 2 double beds, 2 dressers, a table, TV/remote in good working condition and a small bathroom with tub and shower. The beds themselves were comfortable (alittle on the soft side but ok) but the pillows were flat...I used 2 and that worked just fine. The only "problem" I had was I had requested a mini-refrigerator in my room (which does cost an extra $5 a night) and there was none in the room. No big deal...I called the front desk and one was sent right up. We did notice a fairly good sized pool near our building but my son and I were too tired to go swimming at night after full days in the theme parks...the good news was there were constantly people swimming so I imagine it was pretty good. Housekeeping staff was very friendly and did a good job. The room was clean as were all the linens and towels everyday. As for location, you can't beat it unless you're staying on Disney property. We were literally 2.5 miles from the DIsney parks, 10 miles from Universal Studios (I-4 is 1/2 mile away), and Sea World was 6 miles. We also spent a day at the Kennedy Space Center which turned out to only be a 45 - 50 minute ride. The hotel is on Irlo Bronson Highway so you're surrounded by hundreds of restaurants, clubs, shops, supermarkets, fast food places and you are virtually across the street from Old Towne. (BTW, don't use the Goodies supermarket 2 blocks away for anything, they're RIDICULOUSLY overpriced. Drive the mile in the other direction to the Publix!) Overall, this was a great bargain, particularly if you're planning on spending most of your time in the theme parks. I would definately stay here again and would recommend it for families especially.
