Villas at Fortune Place
Ranked #35 of 154 Hotels in Kissimmee
Reviewed 25 June 2009

When we booked this place, we had no idea what we were booking. It was mainly going to be a place to drop off items, go to sleep, and maybe make breakfast before heading back out to Disney.

The place was better than I expected. My entire family enjoyed the place. Even after the day we came back from Animal Kingdom, we had some free time so went to the pool to just chill out.

So if you are looking for a place for the family that is cheaper than a regular hotel, and if you don't mind doing your own cooking (or going out) this is a good place to stay.

Only about a 20-25 minute drive from Disneyworld.

I'll be coming back here in December 09.

We stayed in a two bedroom townhome with a loft. This unit had 2 sofa beds. One of the mattresses was stained with urine. The staff brought us another mattress the following morning. If you do not speak fluent Spanish it may be hard to communicate with most of the staff. In person, I asked for an extra towel. The man went to his golf cart and brought me an extra trash bag. The carpet in the townhome was dirty. The beds were hard. My back hurt at the end of the week. I didn't feel safe in this neighborhood with the Osceola County Jail being .03 of a mile from this location. As we were leaving, there was a helicopter with a spot light shining down in our parking lot. If you want to take your children to the pool, beware!! When we went to the pool, there was one guest there with a taser gun. If you want internet service, you can only get it by the pool unless you want to dial up from your room at a .50 charge each time you log on to the internet. The one positive thing about this place is that the staff is very friendly! However, I would NOT stay here again.

Place needs an update...residences seem stuck in the '80s.
Front desk were very helpful and kind!
No wireless internet service unless you're in the pool area, but the only time you can see your computer screen there is when the sun goes down.
Not long to Disney at all...we were able to get to and from the parks within 30 minutes.

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Villas! Our 3 bedroom unit was great...all the comforts of home, and not too far from all the attractions...about 10 miles from Sea World/Aquatica. Publix grocery was right next door, WalGreens across the street...convenient location, very friendly staff... nice place!

Although, after reading other mixed reviews, I wasn't expecting a four star timeshare, I was still disappointed. Now for the bad points: the carpet was disgusting , pull out sofabed appeared to be at least 20yrs old and unfit for anyone to use.,and remote control for the TV wouldn't work, That was a problem, becasue the TV had no manual buttons to use. The good points: called the front desk and the mattress was replaced the next day along with the remote. The rest of the unit, although it needed updating, was clean. The drive was about 20 min. to Disney, which we didn't mind. (We weren't traveling with small children). The place didn't seem to be in the best residential area. I would not stay here again.

I was like the other people who were nervous about staying here after reading the previous reviews but was pleasantly surprised.

There were 9 of us staying in one of the 4 bedroom town houses with 3 bathrooms - we all had plenty of space and our privacy as well as being able to all be together.

There is now another pool next to the first one and a splash pool as well.

You can get free internet access in reception. All the staff were friendly and helpful.

As people have said it was about 1/2 hour drive to the Disney Parks if you use the 192 but you have easy access to the Flroida Turnpike and the I4 from Fortune Place.

The only thing it lacks is a bar and evening entertainment.

This place is ideal if you want a quiet out of the way location - when we went we were generally the only people around the pool.

I wouldn't recommend this location if you are travelling with a group who want lots to keep them occupied in the evenings.

We stayed here for one week. It was okay. But this place is a long long way from the Disney properties. To say it is 20 minutes away is a joke. You couldn't get there in 20 minutes even at 3:00 in the morning. It could easily take you an hour if you have bad traffic...which is typical.
