Dirty room and it all needs updated. My wife walked from the bedroom to the living room and had to wash her feet. The appliances are old and do not work very well. The best thing I could say is the bed was comfortable

this property is a terrible buy and if I was you I would stay clear of purchasing this. the company just try's to suck you dry and will continue to take money, money, money and they are a take it or leave attitude that will crush you in the bank account

Went to enjoy Disney which is very close. Units were great and comfortable for a rest after long days in the park. Wish I had spent more time enjoying what the resort had to offer and rest a bit more :-)

Everything about Orange Lake was wonderful. We stayed in the West Village in a 2 bedroom unit. Our unit was spotless . Behind our unit was one of the gold courses on a beautiul pond. The entire resorrt was amazing. We did need to drive to the pools but they had plenty of parking. (The resort offers free shuttle service too). We ate at several of the restaurant on property. The food was good and reasonably priced. Everyone from the front desk, the grounds to the restaurants were very friendly. Again, we stayed in the West Village. It looked like they were remodeling many of the units. Our unit appeared older but everything worked well and it was very clean. Not a huge issues, but I am used to having USB charges in most places we stay now. I had to go to Walmart and purchase chargers for all of our electronics. Again, minor thing. The pools were supposed to be heated.... everyone said they were cold. But, all of the pools are beautiful I highly recommend for family or couples. Read less

My fiancé and I spent 3 nights here. Full disclosure, it was a free stay, in turn for setting though an IHG Vacation Membership sales presentation. They put us up in a 2 bedroom unit, which was nice, but it was very dated. During the presentation we found out it was built in the late 70’s. The hot water in our master bathroom did not work, we reported it during our sales presentation, but it was never addressed. We ended up showering in the spare bathroom. We were told the presentation would last 2 hours, but it was actually just over 3 hours. We met at one location, parked our car, then we were driven by golf cart some distance to another location. If we wanted to leave before the presentation was over, not sure how we would get back to our car. The presentation was very high pressure at the very end we were told that the package they were trying to see us was $40,000.00!!!! Our presentation started at 8:00 am. No breakfast just a cup of coffee. One would think that if you want someone to shell out $40 grand, you might treat them a little better. As it relates to the overall facility, the pools, restaurants and grounds were very nice. Read less
