“Disappointed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2012

This was our second time staying at Lake Eve Resort. The staff was friendly and the kitchen and bathroom are up dated. Unfortunately management is not keeping up with the maintenance, or keeping on top of house keeping. The hall outside of our room had not been vacumed in a very long time. The one bedroom closet smelled like a locker room. One of the extra blankets had some nasty staines on it. The carpet was filthy, stained and worn.
We were so disappointed. It has so much going for it, like the spacious rooms, Washer, dryer and dishwasher. But I will go somewhere else with less amenities as long as it is clean if things do not improve.

Room Tip: Be sure to request a room that has recently been recarpeted.

I was extremely pleased and the next time that we are in the Orlando area, we will definitely stay at Lake Eve Resort. This is by far one of the nicest hotels that we have stayed in during vacation. Location was great. Our new home away from home !!!!!

Lyne,

We are so pleased to have had you stay with us!!! The location really is ideal and I'm so glad you found us; just 5 to 15 minutes away from every attraction in Orlando and far enough from the beaten path to keep you out of traffic. We look forward to having you back next time you're in town!!

So glad we found this little gem in Orlando! We travel to the Orlando area several times a year for leisure, to just have a few days away from home to relax and unwind. Lake Eve is located within close proximity to the larger theme parks, yet not right in the mix of the extreme hustle and bustle of the traffic and noise.

We greatly enjoyed the two-bedroom suite at Lake Eve. From our balcony, we had a view of the pool area with the lake beyond. The view of the lake was very pretty as it reflected the bright blue sky. Looking at the photos of the lake on the resort webpage, I had originally thought it must be an edit to make the lake look so nice- but it is just that pretty. Once in a while, you can see a large flamingo or swan shaped paddleboats pass by on the lake.

Our entire family thought the beds were very comfortable, even the teenager that slept on the pull out sofa. The kitchen was an added benefit, giving us the ability to cook and dine in. The fitness center is very limited, but I wasn't really looking to work out during our little vacation anyway.

The room was clean, however, the carpet could use a deep cleaning. I don't think this is so much from a lack of upkeep, I just think maybe the carpet was cheaply made. (But, please, do not let this hold you back from a stay at Lake Eve)

The pool was refreshing! It was not cold, it was not too warm either. One thing that my husband and I enjoyed most about being in the pool area- both swimming and sitting poolside while the children swam -was that there was no overwhelming smell of chlorine. The pool was spotless, we watched the staff vacuum the pool and tend to the water, but it was nice not to be choked by the chemical smell that we have experienced at other resort/hotel pools.

One frustrating thing was the restaurant. Not the food, the food that we did get was fabulous. My husband cheerfully said "this is the best omelet I've ever had." The menu, while not that large, is very inviting. There is something for everyone on the menu. A pleasant balance of pasta dishes, meat dishes, fried foods and a variety of salads. The frustrating part comes from the lack of staff in the restaurant. Those we encountered were friendly and courteous- there should just be more of them. The young lady working the breakfast was wonderful, even though I just ordered a couple of omelets and came back down from our room 40 minutes later to pick it up. At 7pm on a Saturday with a near empty dining room, I did not expect to find there was a 45 minute wait for food. While I appreciated the server letting us know this up front, I was very disappointed. We ended up just going down International Drive for dinner.

Overall, I have to give Lake Eve a Five Star review. The resort was spectacular, in a great location with great rates. Friendly, helpful staff and clean, comfortable suites.

My suggestion to the owners/management may seem insignificant and minute but... there needs to be better signage at the entrance. The Lake Eve resort sign is barely visible when approaching on your side of I-Drive. If we hadn't first come down I-Drive in the opposite direction (the other side of the road) we would have missed you completely.

Looking forward to many more visits to Lake Eve!

Thank you for your very kind review!

But don't forget that while Seaworld is practically right next door, we are right in between both Disney and Universal too, and only 10-15 minutes from any of their parks. And don't forget to ask us for some great tips on hidden restaurants and other activities you can enjoy close by. We look forward to seeing you on your next trip! :-)

This hotel has good location, close to the outlets and theme parks, also located in a quiet neighborhood. Perfect for family travel.The room is really spacious and service is great. The only negative is the carpet , really bad for those who have allergy.
