Great find

If doing a disney vacation and not staying at a resort this place is a good choice. Right near the exit to the parks. Clean. 3 pools. Staff is nice enough. We had some very minor issues. Bathroom is a little small, to the point where we could not close the bathroom door if the toilet seat was down. You had to close the door first. Weird. Flood light in the pool near us popped out so they had to close the pool for the day but there were 2 more and a kiddie pool. Also 3 laundry rooms but two machines in one and one machine in the other were broken. Other than those small inconveniences our stay was great.

Dingy and dirty.

The place was dingy and dirty. One of bed sheets look like snort was on it and the other bed sheets look like it had poop and blood on it. We took a photo of it to the front desk and was offered a full refund. But we had to scramble to find another hotel that night. We will never again book at a Red Lion hotel.

The hotel was ok overall. We were missing an iron and the pools didn't have any dry towels. We had to call the front desk to replace them. The Outside looks outdated. The room was clean.

Close to Disney

Pros: Price and appeared clean.
Location: Disney, shops and restaurants near by.
I had gotten a cheaper rate through my work discount and thought it might be a low brow hotel but for the money this is an excellent hotel. It is near a busy highway but we didn't mind since we had drove to Florida (we had a car). We had a nice stay with no complaints. There is a pool and laundry. No complaints about cleanliness. We are not too picky. It looked clean.

Great Hotel!

I didn't know what to expect when I booked this economical hotel. The price and location were right so I took the chance. Disney is only about a mile down the road and there are a lot of places to eat close by. Drug stores & gas stations too. I was so pleased with the entire experience. As I stood in line for check-in I observed a very happy staff greet each patron like they were family. They had everyone smiling. When I got to my room the hotel past the ultimate test.......GREAT BEDS!! They were some of the most comfortable ones I've ever slept in while away. The room was clean & tidy and everything was well taken care of. They even had an alarm clock that has ports for charging phones and other electronics. I wish I would of had time to use the pool. Maybe on my next stay here..I'll be back!

Nice hotel near many restaurants and shops

We arrived at the Red Lion on 4/3. Despite some negative reviews about the hotel and the rooms, my experience was great. The staff were friendly and helped with anything we needed. The linens were clean, I didn't see any bugs except one gnat (didn't bother us), the beds were extra comfortable and housekeeping did a wonderful job keeping our room tidy. I didn't know what exactly I was going to walk into being that this was a cheap hotel, but I would definitely come back here again! They also have more than one pool, but I only went to one that was closest to my room and the area was clean and Welcoming. Also, the hotel was located next to a lot of restaurants and gift shops and a supermarket as well. The most I traveled was 20-35 minutes to get to International Drive and to the outlets. All in all, I would recommend this hotel!
