3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The distance and convenience to disney properties is great. However , condition of hotel is very run down. Different from pictures on internet.

property was quiet, clean, parking space was good, excellent staff, very friendly

Pleasant stay with frendly staff. Comfotable beds, clean room. Quiet over all and a nice pool.

With the price you get, I was surprised by the qaulity of both the service and the room. It was a wonderful stay and I will be looking for this place next time I come down for Orlando. After staying at a pricey hotel with terrible service, it was a breath of fresh air to stay here.

The unit smelled like tobacco and weed. There were bugs in the ceiling light fixture and it had a moldy air conditioning. Never again will I go there!

The check in process took me 40 minutes . I had a problem with my room keys , it did not let me in the second day

Nice place to stay, so much to do in walking distance and free shuttles to the parks.

Maingate Lakeside is only convenient location wise. The room smelled of retirement home and the maids do a substandard job of cleaning the rooms. We stayed for 5 nights and the room was dingy at best. The side pools were reeked of uncleanliness as wild animals roamed the pool side and saw a raccoon around dusk. The resort charges a fee which should attend to all of the problems the resort currently has, including horrible wi-fi. The resort overall is very motel ish and not resort ish. The staff was underwhelming. As the saying goes, you pay for what you get, and what we got was crap. I hope the management team can look into all of this and improve their product and services as the team could be more profitable if they chose to upgrade basic necessities such as modern wi-fi and a good pool with towels on hand all day, etc. Really a poor lack of judgment on my end for not doing enough research into the property.

Shuttles to Disney was good. The facility is very old, the tub is stained, the towels look extremely old, the door seems broken into prior to our stay

Super dirty will bever be staying here again. Floors disgusting and stained so are the bed sheets and horrible air conditioner that barely works

Property is totally run down, front desk staff rude, housekeeping inconsistent, pool open until 6:30 pm. Orbitz is too good a company to have this property as an offering. It was listed as three stars, no way. Property needs to be condemned as are a few others in the area. Will look to other deals other than Orbitz if you continue to offer this property.

Not enough low heat hot water temperature is 98 degrees full control to HOT position control it is not good. In bath ceiling has molding! No microwave Safe box is dead. I am no longer come back cas use of problem the experience.

Awful! Extremely Filthy! Very unsafe area. Old smelling room.

decent stay with close proximity to many of Disney’s attractions

Clean hotel. Affordable breakfast buffet. Nice staff

Very nice location, close by all fast food restaurant, on site Pizza store and Buffet style breakfast.

Hotel needs updating. Rooms are old and smell like it. Staff is super nice and location is great. Better cleaning and updates would make this hotel great.

Staff was excellent, every person that helped me directly went above and beyond to help. However the facility overall is lacking in almost every way. It’s well out of disrepair and date. Room smelled like mildew, sink didn’t work properly, shower temp was hard to control, fridge didn’t work, no ice machine in building (closest one building over didn’t work either). This place was probably decent 25-30 years ago but it’s well past it’s prime. It is close to most restaurants and you can walk to Walgreens for most needs but that’s the only plus. For crashing a night or two it’s not bad, but don’t plan to be comfortable spending a lot of time in the room. I definitely wouldn’t recommend this place for families.

We switched hotels. This is a motel that was very disappointing. Very noisy. Bed was very uncomfortable. Bathroom was small and dingy. The whole room was very outdated and smelled awful. The gentleman at check in made me very uncomfortable. We only stayed one night out of 3. I guess I didn't read enough reviews.

I do apologize for the smell in the room. Unfortunately some other guests don't seem to understand what non smoking means. This odor is very difficult to get rid of but we are working on it.
