This hotel was a value, for sure, however, don't expect lavish accommodations. I agree with the review about the funny smell on the floor (4th floor to be specific). Our bathtub was still filthy when we checked in, however, housekeeping came promptly to resolve the issue. The hotel badly needs a renovation, the wallpaper in the halls is worn/torn/marked up. The room was clean enough, I guess, but certainly not spotless. When we were checking out, they were delivering new mattresses to the hotel, so that is a start. The shuttle was convenient, but, be aware that it is consistently late (except when picking up from the parks to return to the hotel, it was usually on time when we were leaving the parks). Also, the shuttle stops at several parks and several hotels, so it could be a 40 minute drive before you actually reach where you are trying to go. The shuttle pick up times are every few hours, so you may need to really plan ahead or resolve to stay at the park the full day, and take everything you need with you. The pool and hot tub were adequate, and clean. I think the best part about the hotel was its proximity to restaurants and stores. If you don't mind a little walking, there are lots of options open to you for finding somewhere to eat, or running to the gas station for something you may have forgotten to pack.

We were very disappointed!!! The hotel only had one luggage cart, the hallways and elevators are very narrow and very, very hot!!! The rooms were small and low celings. We only stayed there 1 hour and checked out. We were very lucky to find another hotel down the road.

When I read the details for the hotel on its website, I was excited. A heated pool caught my eye, as did its ""close"" proximity to downtown disney. However, upon arriving at the hotel, I knew I was going to be disappointed. The heated pool is just a little whirlpool and downtown disney is not close at all. The rooms were ok, however, the previous tenants left clothes behing that my children found under the chair. For what we paid, we were not impressed with our accomidations. There are plenty of places to go in the Orlando area that are much better!

Stayed here because of the price and proximity to the Disney attractions. We drove from Ohio, so there was no need to use the shuttle. Upon check in, I was given a voucher for a free welcome package from the ticket desk. Little did I know it was a way to get you to talk to them about a timeshare presentation. We didn't have to partake in the presentation, however we did. I don't recommend it unless you have a lot of money and want to waste 2-3 hours of your day. We were orginally told it would take no more than an hour. The hotel was just bought out by Wyndham and that was the timeshare they were pushing. Anyhow, the Orlando Vista hotel was nice overall. The 5th floor smelled like perm chemicals, though. We stayed in a balcony suite, however there was inadequate drainage on the balcony so when it rained, there was always 1-2 inches of water. The sliding door was very hard to open and close and didn't seal correctly. Beds were comfortable and the bathroom was spacious. Don't expect a lot of freebies beyond the soap and shampoo. Micro-fridge combo was $10 per day, no free coffee in the lobby and safe was $1.60 per day. The pool was nice and deeper than expected - 8 1/2 feet! When we arrived and during our stay (Tues. - Sunday) there were two baggage carts always around. However funny thing when we went to bring our luggage downstairs on Sunday, there was only one to be found and it was being used by their "bellhop" who we didn't see the entire stay. Overall nice hotel and would probably stay again.

My family of 4 (2 kids 4 and 10) stayed at the hotel for 6 nights. I was satisfied overall with the hotel. They let us check in early, however tried to give us the wrong room. I paid for a balcony room and the manager told me "they gave you the wrong information." I guess she meant travel online. Bring your receipt! Also, the first balcony room they gave us first was dirty and the carpet was wet and sticky. They did switch rooms for us with no problem. The safe charge everyone keeps talking about is $1.60 /day and they made me initial I was aware upon check-in. I used the safe and was glad to have it because I felt comfortable leaving my purse and electronics in the room. There was no other fee paid directly to the hotel. The business center has two computers but you have to pay $8 per hour to use them. The lobby does have free wireless. Pool was nice. The room we stayed in was clean and big. They brought us extra pillows and the beds were comfortable, especially for an econo hotel. Although the hotel is located right down the street from the entrance to downtown disney, you really can't walk to the parks because Disney property is so big. I'm sure you could easily walk to one of the hotels on Disney property if you don't want to wait for the vista shuttle. My family drove so we had our car with us.
