Red Lion Hotel Orlando - Kissimmee Maingate

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The beds were very comfortable and there were enough towels for the amount of nights we stayed. Cleanliness was a 7 out of 10, we found blonde hair on the towels and everyone staying in the room was brunette. Front desk was available for questions which was helpful.

Room had to get switched. The main door to the first room wouldn’t lock from the outside. The tv remote also didn’t work. The beds in both rooms were some of the most uncomfortable beds I’ve experienced. For that alone, I would not recommend this hotel.

This hotel is a bit outdated in looks but what it lacks in style it makes up for in comfort. The beds are great!! The amenities were better than expected and the service was great. Free shuttle service to the Disney Parks was wonderful but maybe find a different choice if you plan on going to universal. Overall a wonderful stay.

This hotel was inexpensive yet was very nice. Staff and rooms were great.

The first room they gave us smelled very foul like wet dog and garbage. The second room was a little bit better except there was mold on the AC and stains on the bed sheets. Then they neglected to clean the room for two days straight. The third day they came and seems like they started to clean and then left, because only one of the beds was semi made but they used the same dirty sheets. The management couldn't give me an explanation as to why they neglected to clean the room and just offered more towels. When I went to check out I advised the clerk about what happen and they waived the "resort fee" for the two days they didn't clean. This use to be a different hotel and ever since Red Lion took over the quality has really deteriorated. Very, very sad!

Room not cleaned second day. Exterior filthy. Large quiet room. Fine for budget price.

Very nice and clean,so close to Disney it was great

My girlfriend and I were just looking for a place to crash after a planned long day at the Food and Wine Festival at Epcot. We found this place, saw the reviews and pictures and figured we'd give it a shot. When we got there late in the evening, check in was quick and the staff was friendly. There was plenty of parking available in the area near our room so we parked right in front of the room. When we walked inside, it looked very clean and spacious. The bed was comfortable and the air conditioning definitely worked well as we had to turn the temperature up a little bit. The only issue we had was seeing a couple of small ants on the table to the left of the television. Since it was only a couple of them and they weren't anywhere else, we didn't make a big deal about it and were able to sleep comfortably. The next day we got up and checked out. Overall great experience for what we needed and at a good price for the area. It is very close to Disney. Probably as close as you can get without being on actual Disney property.

The pictures looked much better than the hotel. Dirty room. Dirty sheets.

If your looking for a good hotel thats close to everything Red Lion is a great pick.

When we first entered the room it looked very nice. And the beds were comfortable. But the sheets on the bed only went halfway down. I’ve never seen anything like it in all my life. What a bizarre thing. Where did they even buy those sheets? And why did they think we wouldn’t notice? Also the infestation of tiny sink spiders was troubling to say the least. So if half sheets and sink spiders are your thing, this is the hotel for you!!

Made it work under circumstances ( hurricane Irma)

The hotel was nice, clean, and comfortable. Check in was a breeze.

Overall great experience great price for the room convenient and close to all amenities, staff was pleasant will definitely come back again.

We spent 3 days at red lion while on a trip to universal which is about a 20min. drive away. The room was nice and the beds comfortable.There were 3 swimming pools so none were overcrowded.There was a little store on site which had good coffee in the morning,snacks,sundries,etc.There was a little refrigerator in the room but it would of been nice to have a microwave too to heat food as we really didn't want to go to restaurants all the time.In general this was a nice little hotel with good prices.

The rooms need more cleaning. More than once I had to ask them to clean the carpets, the bathroom and also did not change the beds.

It was a nice hotel and very close to Disney world and many child friendly activities as we have 2 toddlers, we spend whole evening with kids in pool and other activities, they have a free shuttle to Disney so you can save parking cost if you like. Room was clean whenever we came back overall excellent experience.

I stayed at the red lion on my vacation trip to Disney parks. I can say my stay was pleasant. the room was clean and the beds were comfortable. its a good stay for the price. no breakfast included but restaurants are close by. overall my stay was nice.

Great hotel close to Disney attractions and food. I would definitely stay again.

The experience was ok. We received a good service.
