Holiday Inn Club Vacations Orange Lake Resort
- What's Included
OverviewContemporary resort complex located 4 miles from Disney World & EPCOT.
The property overall is nice. But, we had three hiccups during our stay...1. They checked another guest into our room. This man opened our door with the key he was given by the front desk. At first we thought he was security or maintenance and failed to knock. He told us that he had been checked into our room. This was BAD!2. Our key would not open the door. We called, we waited, we called again, we continued t wait. Finally security or maintenance came and determined the battery was low on the key card reader.3. My friend left his expensive suit hanging in the closet of one of the bedrooms. He called immediately after we checked out and was told to submit a form. The case was closed, no suit found. How can this be? Did housekeeping just take it? All-in- all the property does not really care much about "HOSPITALITY."
We were cautious about staying at this property since it is one that will pitch extra amenities for a price. Check in made me nervous because it reminded me of airport check in. After checking in part of the process was for them to pitch you an extra package that would give you access to activities on the property. This would require us to do a tour of the property. I stayed firm and politely declined; we were there for the amusement parks. They gave us directions to our room and we were on our way. We were in a 2 bedroom suite on the second floor by the golf course. We were floored by how nice the room was. Nice size kitchen with everything we needed to cook if we wanted to, an eating area, living room, one bedroom with king size bed, second bedroom with two queen beds, 2 bathrooms, and a washer and dryer.( Keep in mind that we were used to doing the two queen beds in a typical hotel so for us this was luxury.) We also had a screened in balcony overlooking the golf course (some places had trees blocking their view but I wouldn't have minded) that we used every morning for breakfast. We went down the road to Walmart and stocked up on food for the meals we would eat in the room. Having adult children with us (23 and 18) it gave us the room to spread out and not be under each others feet while in the room. The extra bathroom was great. We stayed a week (sun-sat). Did all the cleaning ourselves and did not have housekeeping come in while we were there, for a fee they will come in and clean during your stay. We were about 15 minutes from Disney and about 30 from Universal. We were super pleased with this property and are already saving for the next trip.
Beautiful property. Suites are stocked with dishes and cookware ; the variety of pans could be better. Lovely pool area by buildings 81000-82000. Sales agents are a constant presence. My brother-in-law and sister-in-law took one for the team, attending a sales presentation in order to get us a $80 in dinner coupons. They are already owners of a time share with this property group and said sales people here are quite aggressive.
Stayed in one of the 3 room suites which looked beautiful when we initially walked in but upon a closer look, the room wasn't so clean, rugs needed vacuuming & one of the beds was missing a sheet. Called front desk & these problems were taken care of within an hour. Otherwise has all the amenities as if you were home, including a washer & dryer. The grounds are kept beautiful. The restaurants are good. The pools are good.
We were in Florida in Summer 2016 and stayed for the first time at a resort. Our residence was in the East Village in a 2 bedroom apartment on the 3rd floor of a 5 floor condo. We stayed for 3 nights and were very pleased. The apartment incl. kitchen was spacious and fully equipped. The condo was within walking distance to a small pool area. The East Village lies in a quiet area of the Orange Lake Resort. If you look for a spacious, fully equipped and quiet place this is the area to go to. We were very happy. The main pool areas incl. restaurant and entertainment are in the other Villages. You can reach the nearest within 5-10 min walk. When exploring the whole resort area you will need a car. The resort is easy to find when coming from Orlando airport. We used it as a base for the nearby sightseeing & entertainment areas as well as for a day trip to Cape Canaveral and back.
