Holiday Inn Club Vacations Orange Lake Resort
- What's Included
OverviewContemporary resort complex located 4 miles from Disney World & EPCOT.
The best part of this complex is its proximity to all of the Disney theme parks. It's crazy easy to get to all of them in no time making it easy to come back to the room in the afternoon and return to the parks in the evening.That being said the accommodations are ok. We had two condos for a our party of 9. The rooms were clean though could use some updating. The beds were comfy and the washer and dryer were great. It was really quiet too. But there were handprints all over the TV like a little one had put greasy hands all over it. Our shower was awful....either hot or cold. The water would shut off if you tried to moderate the temperature. The kitchens were poorly stocked. I realize that lots of people eat dinner out but we were cooking. There were tiny amounts of salt and pepper, no cooking oil, 2 trash bags, a couple of dishwasher cleaners, a tiny amount of dish soap and no cooktop cleaner. The condo was well stocked with dishes and the pots and pans were adequate. There was a recycle bin in the kitchen but we had to put everything in the car and hunt for the recycle container. We were excited to use the lazy river and were only able to on one day due to storms every afternoon (we just decided to hang out in the condos or stay at the parks). On the day we did get to go to the pool, we had to get out of the pool twice for more than 2 hours due to "special cleaning".....which to me means "poop in the pool cleaning". YUK. We felt filthy when we got back to the condo. The pool was packed with people. Next time I would stay at the adults only pool. This place worked for our needs but would we stay again? Probably not.
I'm an owner here, yes I think for the cost of my maint fees the wrist band should be included (ONLY reason for 4 stars)..Took the time share tour today and everybody was more than great. Our sales-guy (sorry forgot his name) was nice and once he realized we were happy with our ownership and we weren't buying anymore he finished his presentation and we were on our way. I purchased this 2 yrs ago but have traded in a few times. I really enjoy it here and don't see me ever trading my week 25 away. I bought it to use. To stay in a 2br/2ba with a full kitchen and laundry - at a golf resort - in the heart of the Disney area for ~1000 for the week (cost of maint fees or, $143/night) is AMAZING. Our Orland home away from home!
We stayed in a 2 BR in North Village. The pool there was rarely busy. But, we took the shuttle almost every day to River Island, where there is a lazy river and hot tub (there's no hot tub at NV). Shuttle drivers were always nice and we never had to wait long for them. The room itself was clean, updated, and well-furnished. Even the outdoor, screened patio was clean, from the floor to walls. I was nervous about the cost of all the activities, but we paid the $75/person to get unlimited everything for the week...so, the HIPPO slide, tubes at the lazy river, the 4 putt-putt courses, beach volleyball, etc. We certainly got our money worth!!! Was surprised we weren't asked to attend a sales pitch, but was OK with that. Ha. We'll definitely try to come back here!!!
It takes so long in line! It also takes about two hours to get your room! Not happy!!!!!!Not enough people at check in. You are told to wait and wait and wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Then you have to stand in line agin to see if your room is ready!😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡
This hotel was awesome. So many pools and restaurants to choose from and we had a blast. Everyone we encountered was very nice and the rooms were amazing. The only downfall was saying yes to the time share "tour" as they called it. They sell it to you when you check in as a way to get discounted things to do at the hotel. They said it was 90 mins so we didn't think it would be too bad. We got there 10 mins before our time started and they showed up 15 mins late....15 mins after the 'tour' was supposed to start. Not a good way to start. And that 90 mins doesn't start until they do so that was off to a bad beginning. Most of it was your usual stuff....show us why the hotel chain was so great, watch a movie on why we should own there blah blah blah. Then they got to about 10 mins left in what was supposed to be a 90 minute experience and we weren't even close to being done. I ended up being harassed by 3 different 'managers' to buy there. It was like I was at a car dealership. And the worst part is they went 20 mins OVER that 90 mins of torture. So long story short, don't do it. The rest of your vacation there will be amazing!
