My Daughter and i stayed in the ramada christmas eve 2003 for a 3 night stay. The hotel is old and the rooms are in need for a remodel. We had no prolbems with the elevators has great acess to old town and great serivce for shopping and to the major attractions. The on site restraunt BEWARE!!!!!!!!!! verry discusting you will be better eating of site at the Las Vegas Buffet. Also at the poolside bar isn't really poolside it is more like in the hotel with a view of the pool. if you order a hot dog for your kids don't do it the price is $4.00 for one.
The lakeside is more like a swamp. They do have a pavillion and swings that rock like the ones on a front porch they are verry old and look like they are about to fall apart. This hotel is within greatr access to everything and easy walking distance to old town and not that far from disney's town of celebration. the pool is great and so is the hot tub other than older rooms your family should stay here .
What a dump!!!!
I booked this hotel for a two night stay after looking at the virtual tour offered. What a joke that was. The room was a dump, stains on the walls, mattresses, curtains, peeling wallpaper in the bathroom. The water barely came out in a trickle in the bathroom faucet. The top security lock was broken, the hairdryer was broken, worn and dirty comforter on the beds. Disgusting!!!!! The fire alarms on the second floor went off at 10:30 at night and when I called down to the front desk, I was told that there was probably not a problem, but it was our perogitive if we wanted to leave the building. I had prepaid for two nights, but I left the following morning, and it was worth losing my money to find a clean hotel. I would never go to any Ramada Inn anywhere because of this experience.
We wished we were somplace else!
we booked the hotel based upon the description and the picture on Hotels website. What a disappointment. You are advised to step to the next window after you're checked in to get your 'welcome kit'. The welcome kit includes discount tickets to Disneyworld, with a catch - you get a free breakfast and then have to sit through an hour and half presentation about time shares. The lady at the welcome booth ought to be a used car salesman - she talked so fast that you weren't exactly certain about the time share deal unless you were paying close attention! Just what I want to do on my vacation! (not!) The room was a joke, flaking paint in the bathtub, old dirty box spring mattresses, mold on the celing, etc. It looked like a $20 a night room. They're 'all you can eat seafood buffet' was crap. We won't be going back.
Great for the price
We just returned from our 8 day stay at the Ramada Eastgate. We
traveled in end of Nov/ begining of Dec and the prices were good 49.50
(expedia) for a pool view kidsuite. We had a microwave and fridge which
helped us with breakfast and sandwiches and snacks. Room was smaller
than expected with the name 'suite' in it. Nice balcony- could have
used furniture on them. Large clean pool that the kids loved, nice hot
tub for adults. The room was a little old but was good for the price.
Sheets were old and scratchy but service was excellent. Nice to have a
paper in the morning and a safe in your room.
We would stay again at our bargain/off season rate but not at higher/in season rates.
Decent price, decent hotel
Just returned from our six day stay at the Ramada Inn Resort Eastgate. Our room showed signs of age (flaking paint in bathroom, worn carpet and a light that only worked part time). But, all in all, we were happy with the hotel. The room was clean, the staff was very friendly and helpful and the swimming pool area was terrific. We booked a "package deal" and felt it was good value for what we paid. One note, however, if you book via the Internet, be sure to take copies of all your emails with the hotel. On checkout, they were going to charge us the regular rate but I had the reservation confirmation with me and it reduced the bill by about $500.
Good Experience at Ramada Eastgate
My husband and I stayed here in May 2003 for six days. Overall, the hotel suited our basic need of having a place to sleep after visiting the parks all day. The air-conditioner unit did not work in our original room, and it was really noisy having a room by the pool, so we asked to be moved. They moved us without any problem, and our next room was fine and very quiet at the end of the hall. It had a king size bed (not a very comfortable one though), a couch, coffee table, desk, two sinks and a balcony. The maids did a good job cleaning each day. We did not eat at the restaurant because there were numerous chain restaurants along highway 192. We didn't use the pool or any of the activities such as the tennis court. They provided a newspaper each day (you pay for this in the resort fee), and it had an on-site laundry room. The elevator wasn't air-conditioned, smelled bad and sounded like it would break at any moment. The people at the front desk were courteous and set a wake-up call for us each morning. This hotel is in a good location to the parks and the area seemed very safe. It is not fancy, but if you get a good rate for a room (we paid $35/day), I think it is worth that.
OK but just
The location is excellent. Easy enough to get to and close to
everywhere we wanted to go. The room was large enough for 4, the maids
worked hard and did their best to make a fusty smelling room with damp
on the ceiling look good but it was abit off putting. The buffet
breakfasts were good value but never wnet near the sea food dinners as
they seemed expensive unless you're into crab etc. Overall I probably
was paying ecomony and it felt that way. They have a push on some sort
of timeshare and you get cheap tickets but I didn't check it out.
Toilet blocked a couple of times but they sent someone around
immediately to sort it out. Hate that happening in the first place
Couple of neighbours thought they would practice their basketball on the floors and walls during the night but security sorted that out very quickly once someone complained. Perhaps its hit and miss with the rooms but I feel it should have been better.
A Great Price Value
We had come down on our annual family vacation to find a great price value close to Disney. We found the Ramada to be convenient to Disney by car (just up 192) and nearby to the other parks and attractions as well. The staff at the hotel were friendly and helped us with getting around the area quickly. Our room was only $49.99 with our own private balcony overlooking the pool. The room was clean and had two full beds.
The buffet breakfast was great and much cheaper than would you pay at Disney for food.
Beware of the Ramada eastgate
I stayed at the ramada eastgate in july I had to change rooms because the room smelled awful. the rug was wet amd moldy so it smelled . the grounds were ok xcept for the swamp they called a lake with the broken gazebo that had caution tape on it . I cant speak for the food I didnt even try it the restaurant had a buffet style seafood dinner for 20.00 pp the shuttle buses to disney only made 3 pickups so you had to go into the parks by 11 45 am or you werent going unless you called a cab . the staff was friendly but the rooms need a totlal renovation from the dingy shower curtains to the cigarette burned linens it was not even standard in my book i am a seasoned traveler and i will never stay at a ramada again. go with the competetion like holiday inn or travelodge i met some people from there and they had NO complaints
Took one look and walked out
We had booked into this hotel as we had stayed there a few years before and it was fine. However, on this occassion we pulled into the car park and were gobsmacked when we saw the state of the place. There was rust running down the outside balconies and the hotel looked like a 'Batesy's' Motel!We thought maybe it would be better on the inside so went inside to look only to find the restaraunt packed full of people who looked like they were auditioning for a Jerry Springer show!The man on the front desk was unhelpful and scruffy. The floor tiles in reception were all loose and rocked back and forth when you stood on them.We decided to venture no further and got out of there as quick as we could, even though we had paid for our accomodation up front and would lose the money paid.

We have had an absolutely amazing time in Orlando! We started by having 3 days in Universal riding all the awesome roller coasters. Our favourite rides were the hulk, rock it, the dragons and gringotts! We experienced Harry Potter world whilst we were there which was amazing! The amount of effort that has gone into making it look real is incredible. We also went to watch the blue man group perform and got VIP passes to ...
... the wait time sign said 45 minutes but people leaving the ride said it was less than 10 minutes. Ted and I watched Wendy while the rest ran on in. Reese said this was his favorite ride of the park. Now with everyone happy we walked the long walk back to the monorail, the wait for the trams ant the the walk to Sparky. We got everyone settled in the back for the 45 minute ride back to the condo. We had a marvelous day with happy well behaved children.
... found more 'bargains' but I was living under this obvious misconception that most shops would be 'giving away' their wares, being an outlet mall. Anyway, it was incredibly hot again when we finally bade farewell to Orlando where we had had a great time and created some fantastic memories!

After exploring the resort for a little while we headed to Epcot. The bus to Epcot arrived after about five minutes. Once there, we went to Club Cool to try out some of the new Coke flavors from around the world. Since we had time to spare before lunch, we decided to do something we've never done, O'Canada. It's a 15 minute 360° movie showing the beautiful ...
