I stayed at the Maingate Lakeside Resort during the first week of April 2012. Overall, the hotel - it's a real stretch to call it a "resort" - is an affordable Disney-area option for those wanting a placing to sleep. The rooms aren't super clean and hot water in bathroom was intermittent. The outdoor pool was clean. Not much else in the way of amenities; and certainly none to justify the resort fee which is added to the room rate.
One real annoyance is the inability to check in even a minute before the 3 pm hour. The front desk was understaffed, somewhat unhelpful, and not capable of handling the lineup of people waiting for 3 pm.
For about $70 a night it might be worth it, provided that you don't have high expectations.More
