Second try even worse

Second time staying here. Both times were not very good. The first time they stuck us in a room near construction so it was very noisy. We decided to give it a second chance. This time they put us in a room where the sheets were dirty, roaches crawled the bathroom floor, and very noisy early in the morning. Definitely never staying there again!

Our Honeymoon Nightmare

We stayed at this hotel for our honeymoon back in February and now agree we should have just stayed at one of the Disney properties. The 1st night of our arrival, we checked in and was put in a room poolside. That was fine. We decided to go explore Orlando a little bit and returned to find our room borderline flooded from a pressure washing job maintenence was doing on the roof. Yep...we had a roof leak and everything was soaked. We were then "upgraded" to one of the Tower Suites...what a joke. The room smelled stale and the TV was very fuzzy. The air conditioner was noisy and we just felt dirty in the beds. Checking out was a nightmare also. We were charged a $25 deposit that was supposed to be fully refundable...well here it is November and nothing. The staff was rude and you had to pay for everything in the business center including using the computer. We will never stay at this property again.

Family Vacation

I booked the hotel room online and had to pre-pay for the entire stay ( 2 rooms). I did not have a problem with that as I thought I was getting a great deal. Well, I was wrong. What they don't tell you online is that this particular hotel has a hotel and motel on the same property. The internet price was for the motel - again they don't tell you that online. When we got there the property seemed nice enough, so I didn't worry too much. We got to the room and everything was old and worn out. There were holes in the blankets, most of the lights didn't work, the rooms were musty smelling and I had to use a plastic bag to even dare to turn on the light switch (that was covered in a layer of grime). It was late and I was quite angry that I was stuck with this room. The next day I went to the desk and asked them for different rooms since mine were DISGUSTING! The "gentleman" working at the front desk were very rude and was mocking me when I told him the rooms were disgusting. He told me that the rooms in the hotel and motel were the exact same and that they were cleaned and maintained in the same manner BUT that I could move into the actual hotel for an additional $20 per room per night. I went to look at the new rooms and there was a world of difference. The rooms were actually clean and up to date and the wifi worked there. Needless to say, I paid for the upgrade. I'm very disappointed that the website does not tell you about the differences. If you stay here be sure that you are getting a room in the hotel tower.

Ramada Gateway Kissimmee

Before making reservations I always look for, among other things (e.g. bed size, distance to places of interest, etc.) availabilty of wi-fi which this hotel claimed to have but unfornately did not provide any during my time of stay. This was indeed a nuisance which ruined plans that I have made. I asked in the front desk and they said they were working on it but never fxed the problem they were supposedly having. I never received any apology from not having received a service they advertised they offered. Had I known they did not have any wi-fi at all, I would have definitely booked somewhere else. I felt lied to; they should have given me a discount. I am not renting in any Ramada again.

Will Never stay at a Ramada Again

I was surprised to see that Ramada is a member of the Wyndam Hotel family. This hotel advertises that they have free wireless internet. Most all hotels now days in this technology age has in room internet access. They do but internet access but is only in the lobby and not in the rooms. If you use the internet in the business center they charge 20 cents per minute and 75 cents per page to print anything, this was very very disappointing. The hotel is hard to get too if traveling north on 192. Room was clean but did not get washcloths on the last night of my stay Had to call room service. Room comfort was average and staff was ordinary but not very hospitable. Have stayed at many better hotels in the past and thought that Ramada would have been very good one also. Boy was I disapponted.
