Kissimmee, Orlando

The hotel

Just moments from the magic, this budget hotel’s location belies its price tag. You’re just half a mile from Disney World’s Magic Kingdom, and the Red Lion Hotel Orlando even offers complimentary Disney Park shuttles to get you to the fun faster, as well as free parking if you’re planning on exploring the Sunshine State independently. Set in 16 acres of prime Kissimmee real estate, there’s plenty of fun to return to after days at the parks too — with a pool zone featuring a swimming pool, whirlpool, and children’s pool and a fitness facility. The guest rooms are decked out with all the comforts you need, so if you’d rather order up room service than head out to the restaurant, you’re in the best place to do it.

Safe is not wall or floor mounted. Curtains get stuck in door so cleaning staff leave door unlocked a lot. hair in the towels. But it did have 2 pools. one is temp controlled the other is not. Its quiet unless u get a bad neighbor. And it's pretty clean beside the hair in the towels.

what we were looking for. We were able to use Lyft to the parks which was a lot cheaper than paying at the parks and more convenient. Housekeeping could use work on consistency with keeping up on the room
Image of the Tripadvisor rating Very poor quality - be aware of high ratings. Expect NO hot water showers

Staff seems already retired. Expect very slow check-ins after 9pm. I had to wait for 45 mins to get my room keys. There was no hot water during my stay and staff didn't care if I complain. Beds are very poor. Be aware of high ratings given to this hotel.
Image of the Tripadvisor rating 1 night stay for Disney

My SO and I stayed at the red lion on recommendation of a Co-worker. The price was right and the location was within 10 mins of the Disney parks! We had a single king room and it was definitely bigger than I was expecting. Everything was very clean and the staff was friendly. We will definitely be staying here again!
