Bartender was very rude and even passed out insults and got another patron in on it. Also, a manager tore into a fellow employee under him enough so it made the children question what in the world was going on. Not very professional people. Ill take my business elsewhere next time. Good luck.
Stayed two nights in a room with ZERO amenities. Not even a pad of paper or a pen. Sheets were not fitted so had to fix them constantly. Ceiling was filthy with what looked like black mold. Cockroaches in the room. I mean this was bad. Even saw employees doing drugs while working. Worst of all management didn't even care. Spend an extra $40 and go down the street.
Excellent in park stay!!!! Close to parks and the service was very professional. Cast team was top notch and helpful!
I always feel so great to ride some of the best attractions @ both Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure Theme Parks located inside the Universal Orlando Resort and have free shuttle scheduled transportation to all theme parks including Universal Orlando Resort,Aquatica,Sea World Resort, Wet &Wild and many other Orlando attractions.
Have stayed here a couple of times. It's a nice resort. Several pools to choose from. Nice boat ride down the river to Disney Springs.
Love this resort! Have several white sand beaches and pools. The main pool is great. Rooms are nice size and clean.
I stayed at the Riverside resort. We had a fantastic trip. The hotel room was average size, more on the smaller end. They had fun pools for the kids to play at. They have a cafeteria style dining hall. Everything was very convenient being in the disney bubble as I call it. There was a bus stop where busses were constantly coming to pick passengers up and take you to which ever park you wish to go. There is a lot of walking involved at this resort. Your room is in one location, the main house with food is in another, the pool is in another and the bus stop is in another location. So you have to walk a fair amount of distance everywhere you want to go.
I have stayed at the beach club resort with my family many times. The suites are excellent, and the room key provides access to a members room upstairs. Here you can find casual food for breakfast and lunch!
It's a nice resort, landscaping is beautiful. It doesnt have a Disney feel, so if you like that than its for you. (But we like to feel like we are at a Disney resort with the decor & service) It has multiply bus stops and pools since its a very large resort. Some of the rooms are a bit of a walk from the main lobby & food court. The table service restaurant was ok and their wait staff was so-so. It wasn't cool of the waitress to re-explain to us how to leave her a tip if we paid with our magic band, this was after we clearly said we knew about it already. The chef was friendly when he spoke to me about my food allergies.
I a vacation Lodge the first time in 2010 for about 2 months and it was scary the drug dealers and prostitutes you have to really watch your back I left Florida and then I moved back from my job in 2014 in February and I stayed at vacation Lodge until August of 2014 and this time I can say it was better and they have security they don't play there's no I didn't see any signs of drug drug dealers any prostitutes you still got to watch your back around that area but it was safer but I also have to say that I found that the second time that I stayed there that housekeeping came every week or every week clean my room empty my trash every week every two to three days and they also now have a restaurant that they haven't I guess put on their website but its right next door to the check in area and they serve pizza and sandwiches and stuff like that I'm so in the price is not bad for a month monthly I was paying 6 something a month and its all utilities paid you get cable under wifi sucks and some of the people that went by and the check in area need customer service training but the guy that works days there isn't nice as can be I never had no trouble matter fact I left in August of 2014 and I had paid up until September and they gave me a refund for the month so you know if I ever have to go back to Florida and this is the place I would stay I mean if located right by the bus line you got a grocery store up the street there's a lot of restaurants and actually oh btw is really changed in that area you don't you just gotta watch your back there still some riff raff around there and I'm not saying that it's like a totally safe area at all I have to say that it's really improved and ask for the vacation Lodge yeah granted it's not a five star hotel but it's a good place to stay
