I have never stayed there, but was wondering if you also posted this on the Orlando hotels/attractions board...and if you looked on www.mousesavers.com . Mary has several recommendations as to good hotels offsite, as well as writeups. Good Luck :sunny:

There are 2 HJ Main Gate hotels...East & West. You can check reviews for both on Tripadvisor.com (http://www.tripadvisor.com/Search?returnTo=http%253A__2F____2F__www__2E__trip advisor__2E__com__2F__Tourism__2D__g34515__2D__Orl ando_Florida__2D__Vacations__2E__html&geo=34515&q=howard+johnson+maingate&submit.x=13&submit.y=7) . I'm afraid that neither one looks very promising.

I've stayed at Hojo maingate west, IMHO it was horrible. Didn't even have towels, the housekeeper told us there was no more, ended up going to the front desk and received some from there. Pools to me were disgusting, filthy. I will never stay there again. It was cheap, but still not worth it. Also the beds were uncomfortable and the pillows were paper thin. We only stayed 2 nights, if it was up to me we would have left after the first night but there wasn't any availability anywhere in August, and like I said never again.
