... whole theatre. I was stunned how with all the education on protecting our planet/environment people are still not being a good role model for their children. It was dam right disgusting!!!! It must be an everyday occurrence as they had staff in every row set with large bags etc walking every row collecting it all. If I had gloves I would have given them a hand. I made a big effort to tell the staff as we walked past what ...

Once this had finished it was time for the finale, the superb "Wishes Nightime Spectacular." The classic Disney tune "Wish upon a star" pumped out of the speakers and world class fireworks flew above the castle and lit up the night sky to the delight of the crowd, it was a beautiful way to end what was a truly magical day for us and a fitting way to start our big adventure.
Today we got up early and headed to Universal Studios. We were all pretty excited. When we got there we parked in the Spider-Man section and then walked through Citywalk to Universal studios. We collected our tickets and straight away joined the queue for Shrek 4D. The kids then had their photo taken with Shrek, Princess Fiona and Donkey. We then walked past the Transformers and the kids had their picture taken with ...
Today Sarah and I ate, quite simply the best meal either of us have ever tasted. As a belated anniversary treat to ourselves we had a reservation at Victoria and Alberts at the Grand Floridian, a restaurant that I have wanted to eat in for a very long time. This place had some very big expectations to live up to, and I am delighted to be able to tell you that it exceeded them in every way. If the intention at V&A was to make every guest feel like a a ...

Again - a misunderstanding, I had thought we would be swimming around the boat whereas we swam down a little inlet in the river where boats are not allowed and into a big lake type area. After we have gone about 30 yards I began to worry what we ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Clarion Suites Maingate Kissimmee
Stayed at the hotel May 31- June 3 & June 6-8 (We were supposed to leave June 10th, but we were so frustrated with the unconcerned attitude of the desk staff that we left early and stayed elsewhere). The hotel is generally clean, breakfast was very good (lots of competition for the waffle makers - you'll need some patience), lots of variety for breakfast -- eating area is too small. Pool was very large and clean, but kiddie pool had lots and lots of bugs. We found one 2" cockroach in our bathroom -- I called the front desk and they did not care one bit. Beds themselves were very comfortable, but the mattress cover has plastic between two layers of fabric, and it was impossible to get a good nights sleep (that's the whole point of a hotel -- right??). We sweated like pigs all night long, and the mattress pads made plastic crackling sounds, and got all bunched up & lumpy. We called housekeeping to see if we could get something different, and they did not return any calls. Desk staff did nothing to help -- just said, "Keep calling housekeeping". Pillows are only about 2" thick -- like sleeping on a pancake. Again, could not even get them to bring a few extra pillows so that we could be comfortable.
I stayed here in October 2003 with my three children (8, 10, and 15) as well as my grandparents (in their 80's). We were very pleased. The rooms were spacious and clean. My kids loved the frozen drinks from the poolside bar. All the staff we dealt with were very pleasant.
We just returned from a week stay at the Comfort Suites Maingate.
Just what we were looking for
We wanted a reasonable priced motel, very clean with a nice pool and continental breakfast close to Disney. We were very pleased. The pool area is very pleasant and large with a bar, the breakfast offerings were good, although it got a little crowded at times. The staff was super friendly and the room was very clean. Also, a grocery store and several restaurants within walking distance.
I booked this hotel based on all the positive reviews. I must say I was disappointed. The suite was supposed to accomodate 6 people. We have a party of 5, were trying to save some money on hotel. Boy! we were wrong. Let me describe the negative sides of this hotel: (1)The 2 queen size bed were fine, but the sofabed was terrible. It was old and way too soft. We ended up with a person sleep on the sofa, not on the sofabed. (2)Breakfast was so-so. Shouldn't have said it as a deluxe continental breakfast. If you go after 8am, chances are you have to wait for a table. (3)Hotel is very cheap. We have 5 people, but only gave us 4 sets of towel everyday for 6 days. We have to ask for more everyday. Shampoo bottle was very small and can only used by 2 people.
Great for the money
Very reasonable hotel. Convient location near many stores, resturants, and even a grocery store. Staff extremely helpful and cheerful. Basic accomodations but good for the price. Shuttles were crowed but since they were free they were more affordable than a car rental. Stayed for 10 days loved it and would definitely go back there again.
I decided to stay here based on the reviews I read, and I have to say I was pleased. I didn't expect this much for the price we paid. The area was great, especially since we didn't have a car with us. It's right next to a shopping area with good restuarants like Fridays, and Giordano's, which has amazing stuffed pizzas. There was a goodsized supermarket right there, not a dinky one like the other "supermarkets" you see along the road. There's a public bus stop very closeby, so if you don't have a car but want to visit different areas, it's very easy, and cheap too. We especially liked that fact that the hotel offered shuttes to Universal and other places besides just Disney World. The shuttle drivers were extremely nice and very helpful. I don't know how crowded the shuttles get during the peak season, since they do make multiple stops, but they weren't too bad when we went (early January).
Quite a let down
I booked this hotel based on the good reviews. I must say that we were disappointed. The hotel was very dirty. The staff were indifferent at best. The breakfast buffet that everyone raved about was not that great. Maybe I am spoiled d/t staying on Disney property when we visit Orlando but this hotel was really not what I expected.
Great for families
Stayed for 2 weeks. Cont. breakfast ok - toast cereal, donuts, yogurt, etc. Great swimming pool and deck. Hot tub was hot. Rooms were kept clean and were a great deal. Close to Disney and shopping. Staff friendly. Would stay again. Very quiet except for our kids.
Great hotel at a reasonable price
Spent one night at this hotel and it was great. Clean, good staff, reasonable price. It was very enjoyable. We left a travel clock in the room and it had been turned in by the housekeeping staff and I was able to pick it up later in the week.
