“Very nice accomodations.”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

The Silver Lake Resort is a very nice place to stay in Kissimmee. Located just off Route 192, it is very close to Disney. In fact, if you leave through the back gate, you face the staff parking lot for Animal Kingdom. Approaching SLR from Rt. 192 can be somewhat disheartening but get through the gate and it is an oasis amidst a lot of junk.

The accommodations a very nice, spacious nice appointments. The one thing that disturbs me about all time-share properties is the minimal attention given to common areas, e.g., elevator lobbies; the elevator lobbies are kind of dumpy (painted concrete with open seams) with no decor. And, some of the open space is not too different maintenance-wise, especially as it comes to proximity to construction zones and the ever present golf carts. The pool areas are very nice...could use a few more plants to soften-up the hard scape around the pools but generally acceptable.

The staff are friendly and accommodating. The one demerit that I would award relates to the customer service staff: kind of pushy as it relates to "encouraging" guests to attend their VIP breakfasts ...read sales presentations. Three times to say "No" before the calls stopped.

In short, we'd stay here again.

Room Tip: The 1700 and 1800 building are adjacent to the main pools. The odd- numbered rooms (in the 1700 bui...

This was just an average condo. Room was spacious but since we were not owners, they put us in the older units. It had no balcony and no elevator. Pool area was above average but grounds needed more landscaping as it was kinda of blah. Friendly staff. Owners presentation was very long but not to pushy. Second person tried to convince us to change to points system but was just to expensive. We enjoyed our stay but felt the pictures make it look better than what we saw in person.

Well maintained spacious 2 bedrooms apartment. Staff helpful and polite. Only issue is ear-splitting music around poolside. It is unnecessary and very intrusive. The inevitable call inviting us to a sales (time-share) breakfast received our polite refusal without pressurising us.

We stayed five days in bldg 900, 2nd floor. Room was small but comfortable. I would say it's remodeled but not recently. Room had king size bed which was comfortable with plenty of pillows. A balcony with no view... Just trees but that was fine at least it wasn't overlooking a parking lot. We had a small refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker. Would have been nice to have a small kitchen but apparently that is just in bigger units/condos. Bathroom was good sized, clean with plenty if towels. Carpets looks a bit worn but overall was nice. New flat screen TV however remotes were hit or miss even after we complained and received new batteries. Staff was very friendly from check I'm to check out. No room service but when requested we received fresh towels quickly. The resort sits off a main hwy tucked behind a gate with security guard.
Overall was happy with stay.

On arrival we spotted some construction work in progress at the side of the property. We were a bit worried about this but the staff advised us it would not interrupt our stay and they were right!

Having stayed in Orlando at a number of larger resorts this felt very 'small'. Anyhow we checked in without any issues and headed for our apartment.

Room #8501A, was on the ground floor, 2 bedrooms, spacious, modern and clean. Equipped with HD TVs in all rooms and sofabed, cooker, microwave, dishwasher, fridge, washing machine and dryer. Also a balcony overlooking the lake. So far so good.

The resort boasts 1 large swimming area (2 pools in one and a Jacuzzi), and another pool at the other side of the property. Also a Gym, children's play area (with table tennis and couple of out of outdate arcade games), Basketball and Tennis Courts. WIFI is free and available in all rooms but not very good by the pools.

The best part of the resort was the location. By leaving at the rear of the property you could get to Disney's Animal Kingdom in approximately 5 minutes! Situated just off the US192 you are close to everything, including most restaurants and supermarkets, I-4 and Florida Turnpike.

In summary the resort was quiet and wasn't over populated. It does have someway to go before challenging the bigger resorts but it holds its own. You could argue some areas of the resort requires some work to keep up with the ever growing competition. It must be said there was no hard sell to buy any of their properties which was a bonus! The staff were friendly and ensured our stay was enjoyable. My family loved it and we would visit again.

Room Tip: Rooms equipped with washing machines and dryers get complimentary washing powder!

My wife, son (6 years old), and myself went to Silver Lake Resort in Kissimmee, Florida and loved it. We stayed at this location for 7 days and then another location for the remainder of the trip. We also had my cousin and his wife with us but they had their own room. The rooms were fantastic and clean. Kitchen was well equipped. Pools were wonderful. The grounds were well kept. Everything went great. Were going back this year and staying 14 days.

Room Tip: It's best to get a room on the 2nd or 3rd level just to get a little view and more privacy.

I rely on trip advisor reviews when I make decisions to book a hotel or resort. So when I read the reviews for Silver lake resort, I decided to go ahead and book a one bedroom, one bathroom condo. Well, I should've paid more attention to the bad reviews... it turns out we had the condo from the 70's. The appliances were outdated. One of the stove burners wasn't working, the washer/dryer were very noisy and were not working properly, the sink was super small, the bathroom was tiny and outdated as well.... The only updated items were the microwave and the TVs.
The resort has a new building under construction, so we were woken up by the noise early every day we stayed there.
From the first day, I also noticed ants in the living room. On our last day, as I was packing, I lift the bedskirt to look under the bed, only to find a huge beetle crawling!!! I was so happy to check out of that place.
We are not owners or members of RCI, so I don't know if that's the reason we got that condo instead do the renovated ones they are supposed to have.
