“good value for a place to sleep”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2012

Two parents & two teens stayed 6 nights in late March. Just needed a place to sleep, and I was drawn to the pools and hot tub in addition to the CHEAP price ($35/nite).
I was grossed out by the reviews about dirty carpet, so I asked for a room with no carpet, knowing that these are the remodeled rooms. Bingo! Our room was very clean, with tile floors. VERY roomy for the four of us. Microwave and refrig included. Bed was fine, linens were clean, towels were plentiful. We had a ground floor room and dd not have any bad problems with bugs or reptiles. Some tiny ants across the floor once in awhile. As mentioned in other posts, outlets were "loose" and often had to be "jiggled" to work. Bathroom door would not close, front desk said they'd fix it, but we dealt with it.
Nice to have three pools to choose from - whole place was mostly empty while we were there. Hot tub was HOT! Laundry worked well. Covered pool was gross. So dirty/cloudy you couldn't see the bottom of it. Other two were fine. Hot tub DID NOT smell like chlorine, but was clear water.
It seems that this hotel is trying to cuts some corners to keep costs down. Seems they aren't using chemiclas in their pools. The cups in the room were not packaged - they were just from a pack of styrofoam cups. The grounds were not well kept aside from those near the lobby. The grass around the pool/hot tub area was more than knee high, and the hot tub area was full of weeds. Little things that tell me the hotel pays attention to detail were overlooked.
On the plus - it's an adequate cheap place to stay that is VERY convenient to Disney. Clean and comfortable, just not fancy.
BTW - check out the "nature area" - it's gorgeous!!! They have fire pits and a sandy beach with chairs to use!

Room Tip: Ask for a room without carpeting! It will be a newly remodeled room...

this is our 4th year to stay at Champions World Resort --we were there for 4 weeks --we stayed in a room right next to the patio and the heated pool--all of the rooms r slowly being redecorated with tile floors --newly painted --so refreshing ---the buffet is delicious --the chef is always there ready to make (to order) omellettes or eggs made to your liking --and his chocolate waffles are great ---brought warm to your table---the staff at this resort is all great and always trying to make your stay great --the new pond area is something to see and enjoy --go for a paddle ride or ask the staff to lite a fire and sit in the comfortable chairs on the white sand --take a walk around the 2 ponds and see the wild life and all of the birds that enjoy all of the trees and water--the newest event is big screen movies situated near the pond area--there were 2 Disney movies while we were there --the resort caters to all ages --so close to all of the Disney areas and shopping areas galore --lots of restaurants and many new ones opening up every week ---we would recommend this Resort to every one that likes to go to Disney --likes to see nature and wildlife --loves shopping and eating out --or just want to relax and rejuvenate from a long year --this is the place to go ---

Room Tip: call directly to the resort and book your room --make sure they have an idea which area you would li...

I'm not sure if we got a newer room, but we stayed in 117. Nice tile floor. The room had no musty smell you sometimes get with carpets. We had a fridge and a microwave which were nice. Bathroom was huge! Beds were ok (anything is comfortable after a day at Disney!). I got extra pillows right away from reception. We had a problem with our safe and the guy came right away to help us. Great friendly staff, room was clean, pool was nice. It would be nicer to sit in the sun, but the covered pool is the biggest one. 5 minute drive from Target and Publix. About a 15 minute drive to all Disney parks. Great place to stay, I will definitely be back!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with the tiled floor so you won't get that musty carpet smell!

A good place to lay your head, the one fault we found was that the safe wasn't secure enough, it needed to be secured to the floor

We had to move room because the first one had a very musty smell. The second one wasn't much better but we just went to the local supermarket and got an air freshener,

Throughout our stay there was little or no hot water. Depending on the day, this was either because there were not enough people in the block, or there were too many.

Cleaners were irregular.

if you just need somewhere to lay your head, this motel style property is OK and the staff are friendly enough but upgrade to the higher standard rooms, which while still very basic are a bit better than the others,

Room Tip: Always upgrade to the slightly better rooms as this costs very little.

We stayed here for 2 nights, it's a little out dated, however, it was comfortable and clean, our air condition did not work and we were moved immediately with no hassle. Wi-Fi kept dropping out although not the end of the world, chances are if you are staying here you will be out in the parks most of the time. The pool area was clean and did not appear busy.
One thing is the room safe was not fixed, I find this strange because the whole thing could be taken?
Loads of parking with friendly helpful staff, its not posh but for the price it represented good value.

We stayed here over the weekend and for the price in the area, it would be tough to beat. The kids had a blast in the pool and lagoon area and even got to use the paddleboat. Staff was very friendly and helpful, too. To the people complaining in the reviews - you're paying for an inexpensive room in the location you need to be in, yet you're expecting 5 star luxury. If you want 5 star luxury, admittedly this isn't the Ritz-Carlton, but if you're looking for best bang for your buck, I'd recommend this hotel.
