Continental Plaza Hotel Kissimmee
- What's Included
OverviewContinental Plaza Hotel is located within walking distance to numerous restaurants and shopping facilities, and 3 km from Walt Disney World Resort. Approximately 39 km from the Orlando airport.
Flew to Orlando a day early from checking g into our resort as the flights worked cheaper that way. Found out quickly that we should have booked a hotel in advance as there were no vacancies at reputable hotel. We search for an hour and finally found vacancy at the quality Inn on route 192 near old Town. They told us the last room they had available was room 202 their deluxe suite. We reluctantly checked in as we had little to choose from. When we opened the door we were confronted by a damp musty odor that was actually quite nauseating. We soon realized that the deluxe suite was nothing more than two rooms with the adjoining door removed. Upon further examination, my son found several stains on the sheets that I told him not to touch. I explored the bathrooms and found them to be barely acceptable. My wife instantly got the creeps and wanted to leave but I convinced her that we really had no other option. Soon after, my son took an innocent sniff of a chocolate brown stain on one of blankets, stiffened his back and yelled a the top of his lungs: "This stain smells like poop!!". For some reason entirely unknown to me, my wife also took a sniff and concurred with the young lad that the chocolate brown stain was indeed poop. Racing stripes confirmed, we really did not have much of a choice but to hunker down for the night. I pulled the blankets off both beds and professed that the sheets must be clean. We did make it through the night but I awoke with several unknown bites on my arms and although I used the shower both my wife and son wanted out of the room as soon as possible. By 7:00AM we were on the road and all very tired by the whole ordeal. Please do yourself a favour and avoid this place at all costs.
The Good: Well priced if one is staying multiple nights, especially with a family. The room was decent sized with two queen beds as well as having microwave and a very decent sized fridge. The location was an 8 minute drive to animal kingdom and fairly easy to get to all the parks and Disney Springs. There is a supermarket right across the street for shopping and plenty of places to purchase moderately priced souvenirs, toys and t-shirts etc.Breakfast had some decent options for vegetarians, including a clean waffle mix that did not contain eggs. The staff at breakfast was very responsive and worked hard to replenish items. The best part...the Nestle prebrewed arabica coffee in the breakfast area was among some of the best I have had and we looked forward to it every morning.The pool was decent with good water temperature and we really enjoyed the cabana/Gazebo in the evening breeze.The Bad: Lighting was poor in the room. The A/C was not working when we got it, but to the hotels credit they got it fixed fast. For a few hours hours during the stay the water was shut off through the property to fix a leak. First three days the sheets did not get changed, the bathroom floor was not cleaned, the carpet was not vacuumed and the coffee pot was not cleaned. After we complained twice, housekeeping finally got its act together. To us, this is not acceptable. Even though they have shuttles, very few go and come back from the same park and they were at odd timings , making them almost useless for us. We took our car everyday and paid for parking at Disney.Wifi was inconsistent, had to go the breakfast area to really get it to work.Getting seating for a family of four for breakfast was a challenge everyday. The breakfast area is so small that trying to get anything was like running an obstacle course. The toasters are old and inconsistent.The parking is free, though it is at your own risk. We had deep scratches on our car that we think may have been made at the hotel and the hotel was not willing to share the surveillance video.
11:00 at night pulled out couch to find soiled sheets.. extremely disturbing.. got new room to find out early morning they rented room again ..Ewwww couch mattress was soaked. in urine!!! Ten. Breakfast area was extremely small and crowded.. tables dirty..Limited seats for a big hotel...
I check out on March 2, 2017, stay here for 4 days. Love it, very friendly and helpful staff. Excellent location, excellent breakfast, Super Clean Room. (Latino front desk staff). Wait for me. I'll be back soon!!! Score 10 & A+ Thank You!!!
:::I just checked out of this hotel yesterday, March 5th so my review is very recent:::My preferred hotel in Kissimmee was booked for the days we wanted to visit so I went on the hunt for an economical substitute. I almost passed this hotel over but when I read that the rooms were recently renovated I said, why not? For the price point it is excellent. Now, I am not a hotel snob; all I need is a clean room with comfortable beds, cold AC and hot water. I rarely use the pool on my vacations and only go to the room to shower and sleep. If you're looking for a resort this is not for you. But for our needs it was great. The front desk staff and house keeping staff were friendly, they even let us have an early check-in, the parking was never too full and the free WiFi actually worked. The room was very clean and the pillows quite comfy. I would absolutely stay here again, especially if I got another great deal like I did this time around. The room was slightly smaller than what I'm used to at other hotels but it did not bother us. You have a mini fridge and microwave in each room with is awesome. And a free breakfast buffet. It is mediocre but it's FREE so who cares? If your hotel needs are like mine please give this hotel a chance. You will be pleasantly surprised. Also, try Chuy's for delicious Tex-Mex (it's right down the street).
