The hotel was really old, antique. The only good is that is really closer to Disney. The promotional pictures is really far to reality!!!

The hotel was ok for me and my family. Room had that old smell to it, carpet smelled, also had stains, typical for the price. It’s very close to Disney parks. I wouldn’t stay there again, but it was ok for the price; for a weekend stay.

Carpets stain Carpet wet from leakage of water Ok to stay for the night Take towels and sheets Stayed before and had a better room This times was a bad room

My husband was asked if he would like to buy some drugs. Unbelievable!!! Could wait to pack and leave. It’s a dump!

Overall experience was okay. You pretty much get what you pay for. Staff was friendly, however I did notice the blanket on the second bed in my room smelled like urine. Since it was my last night there when I noticed cuz I didn't sleep on that bed I didn't tell anyone until now. Please make sure your sheets are probably washed. The good thing about the area it was close to alot of attractions and restaurants. I would stay again because it is worth the money and since I frequent the Florida area monthly this seems like the good place

No internet connection although there should be a Wi-Fi but no connection

Our first room had mold in several locations and a horrid smell. We asked to room the staff was very nice and moved us without question. The next room was better but things were still not properly cleaned. Both rooms only had the door handle lock. Extra chain locks or bar locks had been broken off. When we checked out I forgot my charger in the room. They asked my room number and gave me a room key without asking for Id.....didnt feel safe. With that being said. It's a great location....friendly staff.

Clean hotel and nice breakfast at resonable price...

This hotel is old and smells like mildew. The popcorn ceilings in the bathroom are full of mold. The stairs and grounds need a full renovation. If we hadn't arrived after 1:00 a.m., I would have changed hotels. Worst 5 hours ever!

This hotel/resort is outdated still being stuck in the 80's. Our room had multiple carpet stains, towels were filthy with nasty particles on them, hair, and blood stains. Tub was not fully clean and our phone didn't work. Checked in at 830 from the plane, the staff was less than pleasant. Next time read through all the reviews subs checkout photos before deciding on a place.

It was basically a place to sleep. However, the second morning I woke up and went to take a shower only to find that I no longer had a shower curtain. It was there the first morning, but not the second. I don't think it was Disney Magic. I called down to the front desk and after 45 minutes no one had brought a curtain.

Everything was dirty, inconfortable, old furnitures in bad conditions, really bad

First! Had no choice, because of hurricane Irma. With that being said, web site says it had a bar and restaurant? Not Open! You think on a Friday night it would be open? NOPE! Room was filthy (thank goodness we took Febreze with us), had to walk around in our flip flops the whole time. Bathroom! Well besides being filthy too, tub didn't drain, toilet seat broken. WIFI! Don't count on it! Carpet tore up, cob webs everywhere! I can go on, but you get the picture.

We evacuated to the hotel from south Florida and these people where taking res actions with no intentions of helping feed people after the storm or even providing water, a/c caught fire and they would not switch anyone to rooms that still had power that were vacant! Paid cash for the room and they double charged me, put it on my debit card as well! Took cold showers!! They are horrible and I would never stay at this establishment... no one knew what they were doing! Ridiculous there still in business!

I arrived Sept 2nd around 9:30pm/10pm to the front desk to check in. The woman behind the counter was SO RUDE to these two men it was ridiculous. The man checking me in didn't even say anything about it and continued as usual. I asked if she was the manager and he said no she isn't and continued on. I'm just shocked how she was arguing with these two men over their reservation and they spoke in Spanish to one another and kept asking them what they were talking about etc... like seriously?? Management needs to watch their employees! The room was very hot so I kept calling the desk but no answer. I slept the first night in no AC. The following morning I had to call again and finally someone answered to come out. The maintenance man tried to tell me that the air vent just needed cleaning and I laughed because I know how to fix AC units. I told him it does NOT work and needs replaced. He finally figured that out and had to replace it. The cleaning staff was great and prompt! The facility itself needs some cleaning but it was "okay." I did not like how there is a resort fee and the pools close early. I feel that was a waste of my money because I couldn't utilize it. Overall it was fine for a couple days stay but I wouldn't do it long term.

No complaints! Staff was friendly, respectful, and a pleasure. This hotel was gem saved money and stayed comfortable in the hot sun. Everything in drivi g or walking distance, but looking to save and get a well rest this is the place to try.

Not bad for price but not a resort my any means. Pool great. Bar has happy hour. Watch kids and have a 2 for 1 Corona or bud..chill

I checked in at Maingate Likeside Resort Jun 21 and stayed until Jun 26,since the first night I had a lot of terrible problems,started with front desk staff,they are mean,rude,unpolite,very unpleasant . I walked to my room thru the dark,afraid of snaker,or crocodile ,they do not have any light on the path. I got in my room it was hot as a hell,the ac did not work,when work it was loud,almost impossible to sleep.The worse part is the room it was INFECTED BY BEDBUGS,BEDBUGS!!! I went to straight to the manager and complained,showed him my whole body red,hitching and bloody.He just moved me to another room,I could not wait to get out of there as soon as I could.I spent more money buying medication for my body then spending on my vacation. I hate that place. DO NOT SPEND YOUR MONEY THERE. THEY NOT WORTH.

It was good. Not the best as far amenities but it was clean, beds were comfortable, it is really close to Disney theme parks.

They did not turn over our room for 3 days. Badly cleaned, mold, and dust!
