“Great Hotel for the price!”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

Never stayed here before so I was not sure what to expect. Hotel location is great. The onsite breakfast buffet is good as is the general store. Loved mini golf onsite. Front desk staff very nice. Really nice touch with the movie screen in the pool area. Nice big pool. For the price.... this hotel had it all once you came back from a long day walking around.

Wow decided to stay over after our disney trip!! Checked in and they charged us 10 more than expedia. Opened the room which smelled terrible and put my 3 and 4 year old on the bed. I brushed off what looked like a crushed bug off the sheet. It moved and was not a cockroach. I pulled the sheets all the way down to find multiple bed bugs (I looked it up on google) I called the front desk and stated I would be leaving immediately and wanted a refund. I placed the bedbugs in a plastic cup and I brought it to the front desk I also shared off other customers that were checking. called Expedia who contacted the room to give me a full refund and was told they stated they didn't have bedbugs so no full refund. These people are crazy. If you don't mind bedbugs then by all means this is your resort!!

It was a nice place to stay great size pool, kiddie pool , and a tiki bar . There is a nice area to walk by the lakeside. The one housekeeping guy was very nice and friendly. Parking during the night hours it gets full so to get a good spot park their earlier not later.

We stayed here for two weeks. On arrival we had a warm, friendly welcome at check in and quickly got to our room. The room (548) was clean and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. We had an issue getting the safe to work, but as soon as we contacted reception someone was at our room to fix it.
We ate at the Pizza Hut express twice and got the meal for two which was great value!
The hotel is in a good location with plenty of restaurants nearby.
The only negative points for us were the random times housekeeping would call (would have liked to have a do not disturb sign) and the shuttle bus which got extremely crowded.
Overall good budget accommodation that we would recommend!

Room wasn't cleaned everyday by housekeeping, had to hunt them down while walking around the property. Only ONE excellent worker there Martha very helpful. She got us the things we needed! We observed several people in lobby complaining about there rooms. Other than above it seemed decent for price.

We stayed at Lakeside resort in October 2010 and although yes the reviews that state that it is a bit scruffy are fair but we always found the resort to be clean and the staff extremely friendly and efficient. If you are looking for cheap accommodation that is just somewhere to shower, sleep and close to all the parks then Maingate Lakeside is ideal, there are plenty of resturants in the immediate area (we like The Golden Corral, almost opposite) and the Walgreens next door is very handy. We have booked to return October this year (2014) and we can`t wait!!!!!

Stay here 5 days room was clean. But no microwave in the room is really an inconvenience and just to get a bucket of ice you need to go to the bar. As per the employee it seen the ice machine in building one is been down for quite a while. Other than that I would stay here agin.
