Historical Traveler Reviews Celebration Suites Kissimmee
Yikes, stay away if you can afford it!
Gave this a two star instead of one only because it could have been worse. The best part of my shortened stay at this property was that I learned you cannot believe pictures that you see of a property on the Internet I was suspicious of the low price, but went for it since I thought it was low season and as I said, the web site made the grounds and "suites" look good. Boy, did I learn that you get what you pay for! We arrived late at night and I immediately was disappointed upon arriving ("Sorry, Honey"!). As we entered our room we were greeted by a large cockroach scampering across the room. My five year old son yelled out "What a dump!". All the furniture was either extremely worn or broken, the wall paper was peeling, and the second T.V. in the living area didn't receive any channels. I could go on, but I think you get the picture. We checked out the next day and moved to a higher end property. The staff was friendly, and the front desk person didn't enforce the minimum stay requirement that was on our reservation. Remember, it only costs a little more to go first class. If you are on a very limited budget and need the space, this place might be o.k., however, if vacation to you means staying somewhere nicer than your own home avoid this hotel at all costs.
I recently stayed at the days inn suites in kissimmee. I thought the price was right but the service was awful. no only would our door not lock for 2 days, when we went to swim there was poop, yes i said POOP! the human variety on the steps of the pool. when i told the front desk about it the lady said ok we will have the maintence man clean it TOMORROW!!! I would think that they would be right on it. The room was ok but it needed attention. The wall paper was peeling and the tiles in the bathroom needed work.would i stay again??? NOOOOOOOOO! thanks for letting me vent
Its not Disney, BUT...
I have stayed here several times with my family. Considering the price they charge for a bedroom, kitchen, livingroom, and bath, you can't go wrong. Yes it's seen better days, but what do you expect for the price. It's close to all attraction and right next door to Old Town. If you want a five star hotel room, and pay $200.00 a night to sleep, then stay in Disney. But, if you want a great deal on a suite this is the place!!!!
PERFECT for the price!!
If you are looking for a 5-star hotel for $50.00 a night, keep looking. This is not the place to stay. That being said, it was absolutely perfect for our families needs. The building needs a good paint job, but don't let that bother you. The rooms were very clean. Nice little living room with a Murphy bed, a full size kitchen, a very clean bathroom and a regular hotel room with another sink and two beds. We stayed here back in 1997 and loved it. I immediately called here when we decided to go back. After reading some of these reviews, I myself was interested to see how much it changed. No complaints. We have two young children and we all loved it. My wife is very picky and she even loved it. It is close to all of the attractions, 2 or 3 pools that you can use, and probably best of all it is right next door to Old Town. After a long day out at a park, we always had something to do at that awkward 7-9pm time slot. Old Town has shops and rides that kept the kids and the wife entertained every single night that we were there. Again, if you are looking for the Hilton, go to the Hilton. If you are looking for somewhere quiet, in a great location at a great price, give it a try. We will never stay anywhere else!!
Decent place to stay on a budget
Our first look at the suites was at the front and they were painted nicely, but going to our suite at the back of property, they looked a little delapidated. However, our room was much better inside. Everything was clean, no mildew in the bathroom at all, the only problem we had at first was we never recieved our complimentary coffee. My parents vacationed with us this year and the murphy bed came to good use. In fact, my mother said it gave a very good night's sleep. The pillows were a little flat, but other than that, it was perfectly adequate for our needs. We didn't stay in the room much anyway, except at night. The pool had a tad too much clorine so we just walked across the parking lot to the Days Inn swimmingpool, since they are part of the same resort...much nicer. We chose the Suites because it was cheaper than getting two rooms somwhere else. This way, my parents stayed on the murphy bed, my children, husband and I in the room and we had a kitchenette to eat breakfast in every morning. It was much more cost-effective. I hope this helps.
Think twice about booking this place!
My family stayed there in December 2001, and I was very disappointed. The pictures in the brochure make the place look better than it is. I felt the place was very outdated and kind of dumpy. It looks like it hasn't been updated since it was built! The so-called "heated" pool was pretty cold, and it had so much chlorine in it, that after a 1/2 hour of swimming in it, it turned my blue shorts purple and my husbands black shorts blue! The toilet kept running all night, and parking was ridiculous. I would never stay there again, nor would I ever reccommend it to anyone.
Nowhere near as bad as I had expected
My husband and I just returned from 10 days in Orlando. Our daughter's college softball team went there for spring break to play softball at the WDW Sports Complex. They could not get accommodations at the All Star Sports Complex so they stayed at this Days Inn as it is a ffiliiated with WDW as one of their "Good Neighbor" hotels. We have been to Disney on 4 other occasions and have always stayed at WDW resorts. I had read the reviews on this website about this Days Inn and was really concerned about the accommodations and actually dreading the whole trip. Here are my observations: The place is definitely older than anything I have stayed in. But I was prepared for that. There was a mix up in our room assignment as we had asked to be in the building the team was in, or near the building. They were in "G"" and we were in "P"..... they are nowhere near each other. I called in advance and requested this, and when we checked in I asked again and the girl told me we were but when the team arrived we found out the girl never checked so we had to move everything into another room in another building(we had stocked the frig by then). so, I would definitely double check that they have it right. I was in the rooms in Building "f" and "g" and also "p" and "o". Avoid the higher letter buildings as their rooms were not as nice as the "f" and "g" rooms. We had newer tv's in the "g" rooms and the couch was much nicer. Buildings A and B looked a little newer than the rest of the complex. They only get about 10 tv stations. The other complain I had read was that the rooms were dirty. We had a very clean room and we saw the maids every day and they were very friendly and accommodating. We did know people in building "O" who did say they had ants.... they also said they were the only people in that building. We did not experience any musty odors in our room. The bot The room we had was much nicer that I expected.... the outside of the hotel is older so I expected the rooms to be much worse than they were. We had one of the heated pools in our building complex and that was very nice. We also used the laundry facility that was also in this area. I feel it is a great place for a family, or a team as in my daughter's case. I personally would not stay there again as I dont need that much room and I prefer to stay on Disney property just for the convenience. You can stay there for 60.00 through ... The only other thing is that there are no toasters in the rooms....you can rent them for a fee (1.50 a day). We went to WalMart and bought one for $7.00. Also silverware, dishes, pots and pans.can be rented. We bought plastic. If you are driving to Orlando, you might want to bring some of this stuff from home. Sorry this is so long! I just tried to be as thorough as I could.
It works very well $$$$
Over the years my family and I have stayed at the Days Suites a couple of times and found it to be very satisfactory !!!
But we do avoid the peak season , which might be the reason for the problems that folks have experienced there. We too, also love the adjacent Old Town and the hotel's location to Disney . The value in my opinion can't be beat $$$ ..
But the hotel could use some updating !!!
We stayed at the Days Inn Suites at the end of April 2002 and were a little disappointed in the accommodations, definitely not a AAA 3-star. My information said that the hotel had been updated recently. After staying there, what they really meant to say was the lobby had been recently renovated, not the rooms. The first room we were given had such a bad mildew smell that we had to get another. In doing so, we had the opportunity to see several rooms. Basically, all of the rooms looked beat up, like they were recently occupied by spring break teen agers. The doors were all rusted and there were several holes in the walls as you entered. The elevators were dirty (beer cans, sticky floor, etc.) and all of the cement walkways were dirty. On the plus side, the pool area was not bad and it is close to Disney.
My experience with the Days Suites Kissimmee
I recently stayed at the Days Suites Maingate East of Walt Disney World. The staff was friendly and helpful and the suites were spacious. But, the rooms needed a VERY thorough cleaning, especially behind the furniture. And there were ants on the vanity and in the kitchen. Also, we were never able to completely turn off the water in the bathtub and so, it continually dripped all day long. In addition to that, the entire hotel is in dire need of a renovation. While staying in this hotel, I got the feeling it looked the same as it did when it first opened (and if I'm not mistaken, that was sometime in the early to mid 1970's). The hotel is adjacent to the Old Town entertainment complex and each guest receives 3 free rides there. And there are quite a few unique shops there. We don't plan to stay here next year, but I would recommend this hotel to anyone with a tight budget in need of a bigger hotel room.

... to be New Jersey week at Disney World so there were a lot of families fro the state holidaying. the variety of outfits worn were eye popping. Lots of women in tight fitting outfits. Most likely bright colored, low cut tight fitting dress or leggings with stilleto heels for a day of Disney walking with husbands in sleeveless muscle shirts and children dressed as a Disney princess or Star Wars characters. All of us saw large, loud, should have been embarassing ...
